Bellafonte Chateau de La Mer

We absolutely LOVED staying at Bellafonte. What an awesome place. We give this place our HIGHEST recommendation. If you want a nice condo on the water, then this is your best bet. It does not have a restaurant or bar on site, but it is a very luxurious place to stay.

The Bellafonte is first class all the way. They even greeted us as the airport when we arrived on Bonaire. The architecture is very "old world" which really made it stand out from the rest of the "normal" looking places.

We lucked out and were upgraded to the "Grand Suite" which is a two bedroom condo. Very nice indeed. Above is a picture of our balcony which opened up from the living and the bedroom.

Here is a shot of the living room which opens to the balcony.

The kitchen was very gourmet. All of the appliances and furnishings were brand new. We LOVED the refrigerator because it had an automatic ice machine and ice/water in the door. Very convenient to just grab a nice big glass of ice water. And the water in Bonaire is awesome. (We thought the tap water tasted better than some bottled water we purchased)

The master bedroom had its own bathroom and opened up onto the balcony. It was also air conditioned which was needed at night.

There really aren't many beaches in Bonaire, but Bellafonte has its own private dock which is a great place to catch some rays. This was the view from our balcony.

There is very good snorkeling up and down the coast from Bellafonte. 

Each night we had a spectacular sunset from our balcony.

Bellafonte is located near the airport but we did not find this to be a problem. The planes were not that frequent.

This was our corner view towards the city. Very nice way to spend an afternoon. One afternoon we spotted dolphins just off shore. 

They even had a nice little "dryer" to dry your clothes on the balcony.

The grounds were very nice. We toured a lot of other places and the Bellafonte has the best kept grounds on the island. (At least from what we saw)

A few nights we barbequed our own meal. The mini electric grill came in real handy for making dinner on the balcony.

Carroll enjoys a glass of wine while she looks down at the fish in the crystal clear blue water.

We spent many a night on the dock at sunset.
