The positive reviews for Bellafonte are well justified. The apartments are well situated close to Kralendijk - handy for the airport (don't worry, there's no issue with noise), dive sites in the north and south and for the supermarkets. The apartment (Senior Suite) was very spacious, well appointed and very clean with a great view over the sea. If you're...

We stayed in a junior suite for a week in May 2017. The overall atmosphere of the hotel has a very luxurious and peaceful feel to it. The room itself was very nice and had a great view of the ocean. It was great to be able to dive from the pier of the hotel when not going to one...

Just back from a week at the Bellafonte Bonaire, and it was amazing! Hospitality from Sanne and Caprice was just wonderful from the moment we checked in. They answered all our questions, helped with dinner reservations and anything else we needed. We had views of the ocean from our balcony, such a pretty setting. And the property's pier was hands-down...

We were honored to be the first couple to have a wedding ceremony on the pier at the Bellafonte last month. Lesley and her staff were very accommodating and friendly. Lesley was extremely helpful in laying out the logistics of everything...guest arrivals, pre-wedding events and ceremony prep, etc, all went very smoothly with minimal stress. The dinner reception was held...

My two college aged kids and myself spent a week in the penthouse suite at the Bellefonte. I can't say enough about how wonderful it was! We were treated with kindness and personal attention even before we arrived. I feel like people at the Bellafonte would have done anything to help us during our stay on Bonaire. The penthouse suite...

First, I have to complement the staff. very friendly, always helpful. Sanne was the first person to receive us and she made sure we had everything we need.. always smiling. The room was larger than we expected complete with oven and basic kitchen appliances so we were able to make our meals. The grocery stores are all very close by....

How do I begin!? The staff here was more than incredible (Sanne, Cindy, Caprice). They were all extremely friendly and helpful. The room was clean and well appointed with nice finishes. The dock beckons you to jump in the turquoise water whether you are a diver or not! Dive storage was great--complete with a place to rinse gear. Convenient location...

A great hotel. Everything perfect. Room fine, ample size with a small kitchen. Supplies purchased were there on arrival. Views at the back stunning with the deck/pier with easy access for diving/snorkeling. A couple of places to eat close by but a car necessary. Kralendijk and salt factory more strenuous to walk to, than I imagined. Well you know what...

I can not say enough about Bellafonte as a Hotel and about the staff. Since this was our 1st visit to Bonaire we live in the United States and were planning an 8 day stay we had many questions.

My wife and I visited Bellafonte for a two-week stay in the last week of February, our second time with them. We had stayed at the same time last year, so we knew we could count on the Bellafonte staff's gracious hospitality before we even arrived, to wit: - we asked them to provide an evening's provisions for our first...
