“Not just another hotel...”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

There is something about this hotel that sets it apart from the rest. We can't put our finger on any one specific thing but when you roll everything into one, you just feel at home and cared about. You feel less like your staying in apartments, more like you're holidaying with your very own big extended family. Everybody that works here is openly friendly and willing to stop and have a short conversation.
The restaurant and bar called Elia (I'm not sure whether it is an integral part of the hotel) is also very competently managed and staffed. The food is excellent. We noted that it is one of the very few restaurants that doesn't bother trying to woo passers by to come and eat. This in its self is practically unique! You will soon be striking up conversations with the bar staff who are both friendly and witty. You just feel very much at home here. By the end of our stay, the notion of returning to the hotel without making a visit to the bar seems impossible. We just loved the place I know that my wife will be be making a very strong case for us to return here for our next visit..
I have only one very small "niggle", You will find yourself, getting up at the crack of dawn to stake your claim for one of the shaded sunbeds around the pool. There were a good many gurests who thought it was ok to throw some towels on these first thing in the morning and not to be seen apart from an hour in the late afternoon. If the hotel could find a way prevent this, it would make this very very good hotel almost perfect!!!
p.s.
We stayed here during the general power cuts in mid August. This threw the whole island into disarray but even here, the hotel and restaurant was managed in a way appeared to us the customers calm, collected with the minimum of fuss. Somehow, even during this very challenging time, Bellonias managed to make the evenings feel quite special, and even a little more romantic! This has to be commended!!!!

We have just returned after staying at the Bellonias Villas for 3 weeks to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. After spending a long time looking on various sites to choose accommodation I can say that we definitely chose the best place to stay in Kamari. Everything was beautiful from the apartment, to the pool, to the views, to the people. We paid extra for a sea view which was well worth it and we spent many an hour looking out to sea from our balcony with a glass of wine. The staff are unbelievable; the cleaners, the bar and restaurant staff, Sara, Panos and Alia, and Yannis and his Mum (the owners). What sets this place apart is the service and the care that is put into everything. Everyone mentioned above were so friendly and the owners are there everyday/evening checking everyone is having a lovely holiday. We felt like part of the furniture by the time we left which was lovely. The pool is so relaxing to swim in (when there are no children playing in it!!!).
We had read the reviews on here before booking and also right up until we left England and what people say is true. We loved our holiday here and hope to return at some point. We ate in Elia which was fabulous but liked to go and try other places too: Irini's, Taverna Boathouse and Bella Napoli were nice ones. We found a great spot in the beach bar (Kamara Beach Bar) right at the end of the promenade (far right if looking out to sea). It is so lovely to go and sit here amongst the Greeks at dusk looking out to sea and the wine is cheap here too!!
All in all we had such a lovely holiday and anyone going to stay in Kamari should stay at the Bellonias Villas.....

Bellonias Villas and Hotel 28 are belonging to same owners, a lady and her sons that are taking very good care of the hotel and its customers. You can see that this family has passion for what they do as they are every day working at the hotel as well, taking care that things go well. The mother was at 8.00 am in the kitchen helping with the breakfast that I can tell you was the best I had in Greece. It is not super rich but has everything you need. I loved the hazelnut pasta (better than Nutella) the homemade leek pie and fresh fruit.We had room 335, it's an apartmet with sea view, we loved having so much space and what a view to wake up with every day! And no to forget one thing: we were with 2 other couples in Santorini that have chosen another hotel and joined us one day at our swimming pool. They were allowed to sit there for free, they were treated same as all guests of the hotel are treated. You don't see that often people that are genuinly nice and not greedy like the owners of Bellonias are. We really loved it there!

My daughter and I stayed at Bellonias Villas in July. We were both very, very happy with the hotel.
The standard is very good, and they have managed to create a laid back atmosphere.

We stayed in two different rooms, and both of them were equipped with all you need to have a great holiday. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were at a good size. The rooms also had air condition, safe, balcony, good equipped kitchen areas and internet connection. The cleaning was impeccable.
The pool area was tasteful and pleasant. The beach is only 20 meters away, and the hotel offered free beach towels and sun beds for their guests. The hotel also had a gym, for those who wanted to keep up with that kind of acitivity during the holiday.

We had breakfast included, and that was something we looked forward to every day. The restaurant also served lunch and dinner, and we highly recommend eating there. They served traditional Greek dishes with a modern twist, and also more continental food. We tried a couple of other restaurants and tavernas, but none of them could compare to the restaurant at Bellonias Villas.

The staff helped us with tickets to a sightseeing boat, ferry tickets to Crete, ordered taxi and recommended us a good taverna.

So, what really makes Bellonias Villas stand out is the staff. They were all professional, friendly and met every request we had with “no problem” or “of course” – always with a smile. We felt welcome, home and really well taken care of.

No doubt that we will stay at Bellonias Villas the next time we go to Santorini. Thanks for a wonderful holiday!

We love Bellonias Villas; the elegant ambiance, the comfortable and beautifully appointed apartments, the excellent dining, cheerful and reliable service and of course the unbeatable location at the heart of Kamari Beach. We've stayed at the Villas numerous times over the years and will definitely be back! The recent renovations and upgrades at the Villas make it all the more stunning and comfortable. It really is the best place to stay in Kamari.

Room Tip: Rooms back from the pool are quieter, but the rooms near the pool have beach views.

Fantastic on every level! Me and my husband were there for a wedding on the island, without our two young children. lots of our friends stayed here and the sister hotel 28, which is just a lovely. The restaurant on the beach, the bar and pool area are set in a very relaxed atmosphere. The food is delicious. The cocktails excellent! We will be going again for an adult only get away. Thank you to all the staff at Bellonias Villas.
