From the arrival, Bellefonte was extremely accommodating. They helped us with many different challenges that we encountered from hospital visit to flat tire on our car. The staff was great and very helpful. Thank you for making our stay on Bonaire absolutely wonderful.

The Bellafonte exceeded my expectations. We rented a senior suite (a privately owned condo) that is tastefully appointed and very roomy. The spacious deck with a spectacular ocean view was perfect for enjoying breakfast or sipping a night cap. Given its intimate size, the Bellafonte is a quiet retreat where you can truly disconnect from the real world. My husband...

We just spent 2 weeks in Bonaire and stayed at the Bellafonte. 25th wedding anniversary. It was wonderful. You can't beat the views and proximity to everything the island has to offer. The entire staff at the Bellafonte was truly outstanding and went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed or wanted. We will be back....

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...

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!

“Balcony rooms are recommended. Second Floor does have Palm Trees but they provide shade and for me a more picturesque view.”
