“Diving Trip Week Hotel”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Great apartments in a small property- we really enjoyed it here. We stayed for a week, and liked the large layout of the apartment (1 bedroom) on the 2nd floor. Great view of the water, and staff was super nice and helpful with diving, local attractions. Pool was always clean, and a safe area. Would definitely come back here for a vacation, especially with the kitchen so well equipped and well taken care of.

We have been to Bonaire several times but this year was our first stay at Belmar. We enjoyed one of the two penthouse units on the third floor with open floor plans these three bedroom, two bath units are clean, spacious and modern. The kitchen includes a full-size refrigerator with ice maker. A perfect place to relax and watch the sunset from the Northwest facing balconies. The only minor drawback is the very narrow spiral staircase leading to the two penthouse units. Not a fun lift for suitcases and groceries but we got by. The pool is very nice and now has some new magnesium treatment for the water.
The office staff was absolutely amazing. Chrissie and her team went out of their way to answer questions and ensure we had a wonderful two week vacation. One of our family members developed some medical issues and Chrissie called her personal physician and made an appointment for him to be seen that very morning. Very professional and caring.
The dive operation is actually run by Buddy Dive so boats travel from Buddy Dive Resort to Belmar for boat dive days. The boats are dedicated Belmar boats. Very smooth. Easy in/out dock for shore dives.
We already have reservations at Belmar for 2015. Our new home in Bonaire.

Room Tip: As near as I can tell there are no bad rooms at Belmar.

We have stayed at the Belmar numerous times over the past 20 years, and are usually pleased with our accommodations. Most recently, we stayed in one of the VIP deluxe apartments, which is booked at a higher rate than the other three bedroom units. We were very disappointed in the dated condition of unit 11. There were no screens on the balcony doors, the living room furniture was so uncomfortable that we had difficulty trying to watch a movie, and the refrigerator was too small to accommodate the five of us. We felt that, if anything, we should have been charged less for that particular apartment, as there was no comparison to unit #20 - the counterpart to ours (#11). I would not recommend #11 to anyone expecting to find a VIP accommodation. The Belmar is a great place to stay and has a great staff, but we were disappointed on this trip.

We first came to the Belmar in 2011, and have been back 7 times since! We have become so comfortable there, that we really don't want to stay anywhere else. We've stayed in many of the units, and they've all been very comfortable, pleasantly decorated, and clean. The dive staff and the office staff are top notch professionals, caring and helpful. My husband had an incidence of extreme nausea and dizziness after a dive on the Belmar reef, and the dive staff (Samuel and Marloes) were outstanding. They responded immediately by administering oxygen, called an ambulance, and went above and beyond in looking after us. We felt like we couldn't have been in a better place. It all ended well, and we are extremely grateful to the Belmar staff for their professional, prompt, and compassionate care.

We have stayed at Belmar two other times. We stayed in the penthouse this time. What a great layout! Lots of room, great views! Feb is a great time to visit Bonaire. Not to hot in the daytime and great at night. The dive set up at Belmar is very good. Since it is a small place (22 rooms, if I remember correct) it is not crowded or noisy. The staff is friendly and Chrissie has there for all of our stays. We dive the south end most of the time so the location is great. We will for sure come back again!

I have traveled to Bonaire with dive buddies many times over the past 10 years and have stayed at this property many times. The location, which is just south of the airport, is a great location for diving and getting to the windsurfing site. The property is beautifully maintained, and the staff is always very helpful and friendly. I have stayed on the ground floor level and also upstairs and both are very nice. The rooms have been recently updated and so have the grounds. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Bonaire.

Room Tip: The downstairs is very convenient for getting into the ocean and pool, but you can't beat the vi...

three couples, a penthouse apartment. open air dining room, living room and kitchen with a stunning ocean view. well-managed, and a great dive operation (buddy dive) with excellent dive masters and plenty of available nitrox. the apartment was cleaned every 2 days (more than enough) and the kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots and utensils. salt, pepper and a few other staples would have been welcome, but there was at least instant coffee, cream and sugar. only quibble was the wi-fi, which was on and off, usually off. we enjoyed our stay very much. thanks, Chrissie!
