After several trips to Bonaire we decided this time on a more apartment-like approach rather than booking the typical diver hotel as on our previous trips. We wanted to have a kitchen for more flexibility regarding eating options. So we settled for one week at the Bellafonte and one week at Bamboo Bali Bonaire.
Already the preparations for the trip were handled perfectly by Debbie! We decided for "Heaven can wait" - and a heaven it was!
Anno welcomed us upon arrival and showed us the cottage and the resort facilities. Cold beer and wine were waiting in the fridge and the kitchen was well equipped. The whole interior as well as the exterior with open shower, bathroom and jacuzzi were decorated with an eye for the detail - absolutely lovely! We immediately felt at home!
The big table on the porch was our favourite place - for coffee, dinner and for hanging out between dives. There were also a lot of sun chairs in that secluded area around the cottage and you barely noticed another person around - except if you needed support for something - someone of the staff was always around and quickly taking care of it.
We really enjoyed the private BBQ at the cottage - together with a good piece of meat from the Van-den-Tweel supermarket.
The facilities for divers were spacious - shower, rinse tank and gear rack. Since the area of the resort is closed by doors the gear was also safe. They provide wheelbarrows to easily move the equipment to the car.
We had a dive package with Dive Friends Bonaire and their closest location was just opposite the street. Picking up tanks was a very easy thing!
And after the dives there was nothing better than submersing in the private jacuzzi, looking at the palm trees and listening to the birds. Only being observed by the tree frogs 😉
If you visit like us in the (more or less) rainy season, do not forget insect repellant - there are some mosquitos around.
We will definitely come back to this friendly & lovely place with the very personal care provided by the whole team!
