We loved that you could jump right off the pier and snorkel!

6/10 Good

I booked this property because it was so well reviewed. I could see where it would be a 5 star stay if you had a nicer room. The staff was amazing: friendly and helpful. There was a happy hour once a week for all the guests which was lovely and the snorkeling was amazing. However, the basic room was a little disappointing. My sister called it the "Harry Potter" room as it was the small, loud room under the stairs and I think the noise was our chief complaint. We faced the road and there was zero sound proofing so you were hearing the conversations of other guests and the parking lot and road noise. Additionally, housekeeping was set up right outside of our room so the carts where always there and there was a lot of noise when they were cleaning other rooms. Our room keys only worked intermittently, even after being replaced twice. We never had enough hot water for two consecutive showers. There was also gravel delivered for the parking lot which got dust all over our bathing suits that were drying on our veranda. If you are going to splurge and get an upgraded room, I think this is probably a great hotel. However, the basic parking lot view room didn't feel very luxury. I think I would stay elsewhere if I were to visit Bonaire again.

The staff was very friendly and helpful making dinner reservations in town and delivered our food when we ordered from the restaurant next door. Our stay was extended due to airline problems. The staff and the other guests (a great group of people) were so nice. The front desk got us a list of pharmacies when we realized my husband's heart medication was running low. We made it home safely and recommend the Bellafonte to all our traveling friends.

Quality hotel with excellent location. The higher end apartments with balconies have a gorgeous view of sunset every night. The staff is very attentive and have helped us with all restaurant reservation, as well as diving and more. And the best part: beautiful reef to explore diving right off the hotel dock. We’ll definitely return.

Amazing place
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful vacation staying at the Bellafonte for two weeks. We were lucky to get upgraded to one of the penthouses which is amongst the nicest places I have ever stayed in the world. The room had a gorgeous private balcony with sunbeds, hanging bed, sofas and outdoor dining area and a ocean view to die for. Lovely indoor area with 2 bedrooms, walk in closet, huge living room and fully equipped kitchen. The staff (especially Yordi the manager) were very friendly and did their utmost to provide a wonderful and relaxing experience. Housekeeping kept everything very clean and we enjoyed the Room Service from the restaurant next door. Hotel has this amazing pier with crystal clear blue water which also doubles as one of the nicest dives on the island. The pier contains plenty of relaxing sunbeds, seating, outdoor showers and dive gear storage/drying rooms. Overall a complete ++ recommendation, don't think twice about booking your stay at this hotel, you will love it. Our only regret was going home.

A great hotel with an excellent staff
Bellafonte is a luxury style hotel that has fantastic views of the ocean. Their is a beautiful reef right off their pier that makes for a great dive unto itself. The rooms are clean, modern, fresh and very comfortable. The staff is excellent and very attentive. Carlijn, Joanna and the other office staff make you feel at home and are always smiling. We were welcomed with a local drink and a bottle of champagne by Carlijn upon arrival to our room which was a great way to begin our stay! Need help with something? Just ask and they will get you the right information or assist in helping you. A great example was Carlijn setting up my Covid test for our return back to USA. . Yordi, the property manager, is extremely helpful. Listen to his recommendations on restaurants and other activities as he is very knowledgeable and up to date on what is going on at the island. Yordi and staff also held a guests party that included hors d'oeuvre and drinks and gave us a chance to meet other guests. The property has relationship with VIP Divers for an on-site tank exchange that is very convenient and they also have a secured area for diver gear storage so you never have to bring your gear to the room. They also have outdoor showers and rinse areas. So the property is well suited for divers. Yordi also arranged for shipping a personal item that we left behind at the hotel back to USA. He went out of his way to do this. Thank you Yordi!!
