Bella Vista Hotel Apartments
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 September 2013

I travelled to Crete with three other girls, all in our early 20s, and Bella Vista was exactly what we were looking for. It's a super chilled and relaxed place with plenty of sun loungers. Dimitris and Alex were absolutely amazing hosts - so friendly and helpful. They really went above and beyond and made our stay. The food is amazing, I recommend the strapatsada (scrambled eggs with tomatoes and feta cheese) - I could not get enough of this dish!
The apartments are really spacious and clean with comfy beds. The apartments are about a half an hour walk from the Hersonissos strip but only a few mins walk from the old town, which has a lovely square with really good restaurants.

Stayed: August 2013, travelled with friends

Bella Vista is run by two brothers. They are very friendly and can help you with all kinds of things.
The rooms are a good size, they are clean and tidy. Bed sheets and towels are refreshed once and twice a week. They have a nice, clean swimming pool with enough loungers. They have a nice bar and you can enjoy their delicious home made lunches and dinners. There are also 2 computers, dart board and a pool table. Good fun for children!
Bella Vista lies on the top of a hill and has a beautiful view. Its about a 20 minute walk down to the centre. A taxi will take you there in 5 minutes and costs 6 or 7 euros.
We had a lovely time! Enough to do in the region (restaurants, vibrant night life, beautiful beaches, castles, palace, caves, islands, boat trips, fishing trips etc.)
I'd definitely recommend it to couples, families, friends, young and old!

We arrived in Bella Vista 2 days ago, but the place has a real relaxed and nice amosphere. Appartment is clean and spacious enough for us (2 adults and 2 kids). Our hosts are great; welcome was warm and easy going. Old Chersonissos is a small place with nice places to eat. We still have to 'test' the food of Bella Vista, but its promising!

As with my other reviews I will give you what I see as the good and the not so good.
Firstly Dimitris (mimis) and Alex are Superb hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Alex is a very good chef and mimis is also a very good pastry chef. The food was of a very high quality and BBQ night well that was some of the best fresh meat I have had. Very good price as well.
The apartment is very spacious, well equipped and nicely decorated, the shower was also good. The air con (included in the price when we booked direct) is similar to the central air type you get in America and as such was great. My wife says the beds are of a good quality and a lot better than others we have experienced. Also there is free wi-fi and it is accessible in most/all the rooms I believe. The fridge also kept things rather chilled.
The not so good( these are minor gripes)
Took a while to get hot water in either kitchen or bathroom tap.
I think the drinks prices are a tad expensive however I found this to be the case in most bars oh and the tv is ridicuolously small( not that we used it)

The reason there aren't so many English reviews are that it has been on a holiday makers books for a few years and was primarily rented to Dutch guests, there are still a number of Dutch that come here but don't let it put you off. It's a great location with many things close by and the hosts make it a great great place to stay.

A side note.....the price was superb, I think it cost us about £18 a night for the room and that's for both of us not each!

Room Tip: All rooms face towards the sea! There is no spa or fitness centre but I couldn't click off t...

After deciding to spend extra time in Crete we found this hotel online. I have to say this was the best find of our 10 weeks in Europe. If you are going to be in Crete I highly recommend staying here. Dimitris and Alex were the best hosts we could have asked for. The price was incredible and the service was the best we experienced. You may want to rent a car to explore the area, but I highly recommend that this be your home base!

Room Tip: Get one of the upper suites that has 2 balconies, 1 facing the mountains, the other facing the sea.

We went at Easter. We were in a self catering appartment. It was clean, comfortable and very quiet. The staff were friendly and helpful. The area was good for exploring. the village had nice places to eat although it was early in the season. Excellent value for money too.

Room Tip: All rooms appear to be double aspect with 2 balconies to get sun or shade.
