The Bellafonte is a one of a kind place. We were there from January 10-16, 2016. We had a junior suite that was right in the middle of the hotel. The view was fantastic and the snorkeling right from the dock was the BEST. The staff was very nice and fun. They went out of their way to help with...

The Bellafonte and its amazing staff made this the best vacation - ever. They went out of their way to welcome us and were always available to assist with dinner ideas/reservations and directions around the island. If you wish to snorkel off the dock just a few steps from your patio, watch the most beautiful sunsets and stay in a...

We stayed two nights in a Grand Suite at Bellafonte.. Two nicely appointed bedrooms each with their own bathroom. When we wanted to eat in there was a well equipped Kitchen. Everything worked. Lots of plates, glasses, utensils. Wifi was just for the room - hence very strong and reliable. The balcony was a great place to relax and offered...

This was 5 minutes from the airport and so convenient to everything! We dove right off the pier! Loved the staff, residents and sunsets! We stayed in the 2 bedroom penthouse! Best view, best staff and best bargain in the world! Marriott, Hilton and Ritz, stay away! Bonaire done not need you!

We love this property (third time back)! The grounds and accommodations are wonderful and we miss the staff already. They are so knowledgeable about the island and what to do, where to go and what to enjoy. We hope they don't get too popular, for very selfish reasons.

We stayed five nights in a junior suite at Bellafonte in November 2015.The apartment hotel was nice and the staff very helpful, and the best part was the private pier, which was perfect for sunbathing and snorkeling. Do note that Bellafonte is not a hotel, but consists of privately owned apartments. Thus there is no restaurant or breakfast there. You...

We stayed at the Bellafonte Hotel two weeks and enjoyed every single day! It is beautiful and offers easy access to the sea - I loved swimming every morning and snorkeling in the afternoon when we came back from our day trips. The landing stage can be used for sun bathing, simply watching the sea and the fabilous sun sets....

“Penthouse Suite!!!”

“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.”
