My two college aged kids and myself spent a week in the penthouse suite at the Bellefonte. I can't say enough about how wonderful it was! We were treated with kindness and personal attention even before we arrived. I feel like people at the Bellafonte would have done anything to help us during our stay on Bonaire. The penthouse suite...

First, I have to complement the staff. very friendly, always helpful. Sanne was the first person to receive us and she made sure we had everything we need.. always smiling. The room was larger than we expected complete with oven and basic kitchen appliances so we were able to make our meals. The grocery stores are all very close by....

How do I begin!? The staff here was more than incredible (Sanne, Cindy, Caprice). They were all extremely friendly and helpful. The room was clean and well appointed with nice finishes. The dock beckons you to jump in the turquoise water whether you are a diver or not! Dive storage was great--complete with a place to rinse gear. Convenient location...

A great hotel. Everything perfect. Room fine, ample size with a small kitchen. Supplies purchased were there on arrival. Views at the back stunning with the deck/pier with easy access for diving/snorkeling. A couple of places to eat close by but a car necessary. Kralendijk and salt factory more strenuous to walk to, than I imagined. Well you know what...

My wife and I visited Bellafonte for a two-week stay in the last week of February, our second time with them. We had stayed at the same time last year, so we knew we could count on the Bellafonte staff's gracious hospitality before we even arrived, to wit: - we asked them to provide an evening's provisions for our first...

Bellafonte was nothing short of perfect. We've been to several other properties on the Island and Bellafonte is by far our favorite. The staff was very nice and helpful. They answered all the questions we had and recommended some great restaurants. The rooms were always clean and tidy as well. They just finished building their new pier which was very...

We have been here several times, the apartments are modern, clean, spacious and the property is luxurious and beautiful. The aqua turquoise waters of Bonaire are simply stunning. 5 mins to Airport and grocery shopping. Ten minutes to Jibe City.

We only spent two days in Bonaire. Wish we had scheduled more time. The entire staff of the Belafonte Luxury Oceanfront Hotel was fantastic! Caprice especially went out of her way to make our stay special! Would highly recommend this establishment for your stay in Bonaire!! We are hoping to go back next year with our family!!!

Expensive hotel for what you get, the room had a full kitchen, but the kitchen didn't even have salt and pepper, so if your going to cook, be prepared to buy everything. Thank god there was a roll of paper towels. Cable TV was a bust, flat out didn't work. Only stayed three days, and spent most of our days...

“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.”
