This is our second visit to Bonaire and the Bellafonte (2013). We had a ground floor apartment, as before, but on the other side of the jetty and for us preferable. The apartment was lovely and clean on our arrival and Rebecca had arranged for some provisions (you do have to pay for these and a fee for arranging it...

My wife and I booked a getaway to the island of Bonaire back in September 2015. We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Bellafonte. Upon arrival a fantastic surprise was awaiting.

Bellafonte is basically what's considered a "condo" complex in the States - each unit individually owned and decorated by owners with centralized management that oversees bookings, cleaning and maintenance. We found that the management did an excellent job - our unit was clean, tastefully furnished and had spectacular water views. The kitchen was reasonably equiped for the simple meals we...

We recently returned from a seven night stay at the Bellafonte. We have no complaints. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the grounds are pretty and very convenient for swimming and snorkeling, and the staff is great. First the room - we stayed in a junior suite and it was huge. The furnishings were modern, nice looking and comfortable; the...

The Bellafonte is a beautiful upscale place to stay. It is close to the southern end dive sites and the house dock gives one easy access to the house reef. The staff is excellent. I would like to give a special thanks to Rebecca ... what a lovely person she is! Extremely helpful. I just wished our stay was longer....

Beautiful hotel at the ocean. You can relax, read a book or snorkel. Rooms are equipped with their own kitchen etc. So you can bring your own food from the supermarket. Thanks Sheila and Rebecca for a great time!

The Bellafonte is an intimate, well- run upscale hotel. Beautifully appointed apartments, with details worthy of conversation and a knowledgeable staff eager to please make this spot our home away from home. Captivating views, pristine easily accessed house reef, lush grounds and of course rinse tanks and dive lockers (these are even beautiful)---and somehow, it's even affordable. We love it...

Absolutely beautiful property. Great diving and snorkeling right off the house dock! Our stay was made so amazing thanks to the caring attentive staff. Rebecca, in particular, made our stay absolutely wonderful with her care and kindness.

We have been to Bonaire at least fifteen times over the last 25 years, and our 10-day stay at the Bellafonte was the best ever. We arrived late in the afternoon, and Rebecca helped us get our truck rental, told us how to find the best supermarket in Bonaire, and recommended restaurants. The apartment was beautiful and comfortable, great cooking...
