This is a gorgeous boutique hotel. Of course, lovely and well appointed rooms with priceless views. Their dock is the best on the entire island! What makes this lovely small resort stand out way above any others is the staff! Every detail is thought of and any wish is attended to with smiles and genuine curiosity. It is like returning to "family"! I can not rate the staff high enough because each and every one of them is genuinely invested in your comfort and enjoyment while staying at Bellafonte! I look forward to seeing everyone upon my return!
It's that personal.

It is a 5 star beautiful place. You feel that you are really traveling and relaxing. The service is very good, I meen the staff is always there when you need them. There are great restaurants walking distance. Last time " Queen of Holland" came to visit Bonaire, she stayed 3 nights. That must meen something.

Room Tip: All the apartments and suits are great and complete.

My husband and I stayed in the penthouse for a week. The views are breathtaking, the appartment is huge, the kitchen fully equipped and the ladies at the front desk are very service oriented. We cooked in our penthouse every day and really enjoyed the fact that we could sit outside on the balcony. There is a lot of wind in Bonaire and we could pick our spot to be comfortable as the balcony is so big. It was truly amazing that we were offered another room for our last day as our flight was at 8pm, it gave us an extra day of vacation which we really appreciated. Some things that could have made the experience even better: we didn't get any new bathroom amenities during our week and adding coffee/ tea was a little bit hit or miss (but asking coffee at the front desk was not a problem). The bedroom is quite small, compared to everything else, but since you don't want to spend time being in the bedroom, we didn't consider it a problem.

The Bellafonte is a beautiful, fully equipped condo right on the ocean. VIP diving caters to the diving guests with air tanks right on the property. They have an 'unlimited dive package' so you can just grab a tank, load it in your truck and off you go.
The Bellafonte Dock is also a great place to dive or snorkel from, making it super easy to get ready by just bringing your gear to the dock and walking into the water.
The Bellefonte staff is super friendly and will give suggestions for dinner, etc.
The condo, we were in 104, on the ground level, was well equipped for our needs. It had 2 BR and 2 baths with a full kitchen. We finished each afternoon with a happy hour on our deck, watching for sunset. It was also relaxing to get back to the Bellefonte in the afternoon for a little reading/nap time on the dock. With the tarp at the end of dock, it provides some shade for a few lounge chairs.
We never had a problem with hot water.
We visited various dive/snorkel sites around the island using the tourist map readily available. Everything is fairly well marked so pretty easy to find.
The Bellafonte is located just outside of town which is really nice because it's a short 5 minute drive to town but you don't have to deal with any crowds from the cruise ship, (we were here for 2 ships but wasn't too bad).
The Bellafonte is a beautiful condo to stay at for a relaxing vacation.

Our stay at the Bellafonte was perfect. Roos, Jenny and Melissa at the front desk were always friendly and helpful with any request. The location is convenient to the airport, town and any activities. We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath ground floor unit which was clean, comfortable and well-supplied. We did not want to leave!
