Stayed for a week in a junior suite. Location is great. Room was very nice though the balcony is quite small in the junior suite. If you want a larger balcony go for the senior suite. Beautiful view. The restaurant next door was very good. Had no issue at all with construction noise. Met some very nice friendly people. The staff were all very helpful. Would stay again.

Hotel's Favorite
This Boutique hotel on Bonaire’s Waterfront has the best ambiance of any its competitors. Caring staff make the luxurious Accomodations that much better. Go any time of year, it’s magical. I've travelled to Bonaire for 7 years and this is by far the best spot on the island. I intend to go back!

Fantastic accommodations. GORGEOUS view and amenities, Friendly owners and easy access to most shore diving. Close to all area attractions and VERY CLOSE TO AIRPORT BUT NOT A DISTRACTION FROM PEACEFUL SERENITY. Only drawback was another guest allowed her daughter to cry all the time and run around naked with a potty trainer. When they were not around it was paradise!

Suzi and I didn't realize when we booked that we'd be renting a time share, nor did we know that there were no restaurants or bars on the premises. No problem. Our studio had a kitchen, there was a restaurant next door and another within walking distance - both served great food. But Bellafonte - amazing staff. Very attententive. Despite their lack of amenities of a true resort (they don't claim to be a resort), they made us welcome with a happy hour evening, a wine tasting evening, and daily snacks on the dock. Very quiet. Yes, there is construction across the street that starts at 7:00 am, but that's when you should start the day anyway. We met nice owner/guests. They have snorkel equipment, and beer and wine for purchase in a refrigerator in their office. No beach, no pool, but great snorkel scenery. My only wish for improvement is that they try to build a little more shade for the intense afternooon sun. We will definitely be back.

What a wonderful stay we had the Bellafonte...2 weeks of paradise! We started off in a studio which was fine but we quickly realized we wanted to wake up to the ocean each morning. The staff was wonderful and worked things out so we could upgrade and spend the last several days of our stay in a suite overlooking the ocean. The view was breathtaking! Our suite was spacious and well layed out with a lovely full kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and large living area. Most of our time when not snorkeling was spent on our huge balcony. The Bellanfonte is quiet and wonderfully comfortable. There is no restaurant or bar on the premises but steps up the street is a wonderful waterfront restaurant and bar "Windsock". We ate there several times...the food was good and reasonably priced. It's a good option if you don't wish to drive or cook in. There is a wonderful pier with loungers which is a great place to catch some sun while enjoying the wonderful ocean breeze to keep you cool. The swimming is great right off the pier as is the snorkeling and I'm told the diving as well (especially if you go left from the Bellanfonte). I can't speak highly enough of the staff. They are outstanding! They go out of their way to make sure that guests have everything they need. During our stay they hosted 2 wine tastings and a New Years get-together with champagne. The Bellanfonte made our first trip to Bonaire perfect. We cannot wait to come back and will definitely stay here again.
