Best location on Bonaire. We are repeat guests and have stayed in 6 different units and love the newly renovated unit 102. High end design with striking art and amenities. First class. More modern than most units at Bellafonte. Bathrooms are all marble. Saw a huge school of fish diving in front of Bellafonte today and many squid. Peaceful and...

This is one of my favorite hotels of all time. The rooms are nice, but nothing fancy. There is a small kitchen with utensils available. The view from the dock is what takes the cake. I've never seen anything like it. You can hang out of the dock, there is a ladder that takes you right down into the ocean...

We stayed here the first two nights of our nine day trip, having already purchased a time share from a friend for the rest of our dive trip. My wife and I enjoyed the comfort and cleanliness of the hotel as well as friendly staff. Great snorkeling rite off the deck. At the end of our trip I realized for...

The diving and snorkeling from the beach are amazing!! The hotel was nice and the staff were incredible, taking care of our every need. The snorkeling right of the hotel deck is great and was a very nice plus. If you come to Bonaire, you need to rent a car. The roads are decent and the traffic is minimal. There...

The staff at Bellafonte was so accommodating from the very beginning. Cindy, the person we typically corresponded with, was always prompt to reply to any question we had throughout the process. She made the arrangements for our car AND for our diving, with we did with VIP. We stayed in a junior suite which had a living room, balcony, and...

This was the perfect place to stay!! Amazing views all day long overlooking the dock which at the end and about 30'+ down has its own treasure of a reef. Lockers to store gear next to the rinse tanks and tanks delivered daily... It's too easy!! The staff are all amazing and made every effort to get to know us...

This is a nice, friendly place on a great island. The ocean-front location is great. The room I had was large, well airconditioned. And the wifi connection great throughout. The staff are super-friendly, making an effort to connect with all guests on a personal level, looking for ways to help, offer advice etc. The one downside is that it fails...

Using Trip Advisor as our guide, we picked the Bellafonte. We had never been to Bonaire and so relied on the good reviews of this resort. We were not disappointed for one second. Luxurious, spacious as well as being greeted outside as we pulled up. We rented the Senior Suite with our friends renting the Junior Suite next door so...
