Wife and I stayed for a week at the Bellafonte and feel that it is a great base for getting the most out of all that Bonaire offers! We utilized the drive & dive package, which we thought was good value. Really enjoyed having the full kitchen to prepare meals (especially fresh caught fish), and loved having the dock and...

Absolutely perfect for a luxury vacation by the sea. Huge, lovely, fully equipped apartment; nicely maintained and outfitted, and in an excellent location. Their private lounging pier is such a plus; you can slip into the water from the ladder on the deck, and the snorkeling right there is terrific. We had a huge deck overlooking the ocean, beautifully furnished....

Stayed at Bellafonte so my partner could complete her dive certification. New pier is wonderful and happy there is now shade and lovely new teak lounge chairs with cushions. Reef in front of Bellafonte is excellence. Peaceful luxury hotel on the ocean. Two restaurants next door with good food and bar service. There are direct flights to Bonaire from New...

This is our second visit to Bellafonte. We stayed for 6 nights over the holidays in Dec 2016. We were lucky to get a room since we planned the vacation in August. We love staying on the first floor unit as the deck seems so much bigger with the ability to walk right out to the dock. We also like...

For our 2nd trip to Bonaire we wanted a place where we could cook. Bellafonte seemed like a good choice and we were more than pleased with the apartment and service! Staff is kind and friendly. Our apartment was spotless. There was an issue one afternoon where the power in our room went out. The front desk came right up...

Fellow TripAdvisor users, Sara and the management of Bellafonte is so committed to the experience off their guests that they will go above and beyond to making sure that your expectations are met.

The staff at Bellafonte was professional, caring and knowledgeable. Our unit was nicely furnished and clean. The view from the rooms were gorgeous and the hotel's location was convenient to the places we visited most frequently. Bonaire is a great island for snorkeling, diving, dining and relaxing.

Only had an overnight here as we were island hopping. Had a JR suite with view of ocean on 3 rd floor with surprise bottle of wine in fridge. Absolutely beautiful! Nice snorkeling. Certainly felt like royalty here ( as I'm told the King and Queen from Netherlands has stayed there). Walking distance to airport and nice restaurant. Would definitely...

“Balcony rooms are recommended. Second Floor does have Palm Trees but they provide shade and for me a more picturesque view.”

“Rooms on 2nd floor are partly shaded by the palms, but these limit the sea view; we prefer shade.”
