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. For appropriate reasons I cannot divulge what they did for me and my bride, but it blew my mind. I have stayed at Le Meurice, the Plaza...

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...

This is a fantastic place to stay in Bonaire!! I stayed here for a week and loved it. It was very quiet and calm but close to everything. I had an ocean view room which was spectacular!!

The service was outstanding and the rooms were big and comfortable. the most amazing area was the private pier and the gear storage. Also, for divers like us, it was convenient to have a place to clean our equipment and gear, not forgetting about the tank storage too.

Christy and I are making our second dive trip to Bonaire (leaving in about a week) and we are also staying at Bellafonte again. It is the perfect place to stay if you like to dive and don't want to be in a crowd. The suites are great and most, if not all, have a great view of the water....

Stayed here for 3 nights to do a quick dive trip. Very conveniently located just outside of Kralendjik, very nice, clean and well kept. Easy drive to numerous dive sites and only a few minutes to get to town. Great value for the price.
