Reviewed 26 June 2009

went here with my girlfriend, who would become my fiancee a few days into this trip. bellonias villas stands out as the nicest hotel in kamari. if you want to visit santorini and prefer the beach to cliffside views and sunsets, then this is your top pick.

we stayed in a superior studio, and absolutely loved the white, cave-like design of these rooms. although the balcony overlooked the pool, it felt private enough for us and provided a nice view of the sidewalk and beach beyond.

the service was top-notch at all times and each member of the staff was friendly and professional.

We stayed in the hotel as we picked Santorini to get married as it is a beautiful place. The thing is the pictures of this hotel are gorgeous but we booked a Superior studio which should of had a bath with Jacuzzi but ended up with a shower so small you couldn't wash your hair!!! Even after asking we were told we were in the right room????? None of the rooms look anything like the pictures on the website. Another couple stayed there and the air conditioning leaked and the hairdrer was broken but they were fixed very quickly.
The pool area is great but very expensive to eat and drink! But the best bit is the private beech area with the lovely girl who waits on you there we were the envy of all our friends! but be quick the best beds go early!!! would go again but don't expect too much definatley overcharged for what you get!

We stayed here in June 2008. We saw the hotel last year and it looked very nice ......

I cannot understand how the reviews of this hotel rate it so highly.... were we staying in different place?

For the money we paid we expected a good hotel.

Prior to going away we had emailed the hotel with a simple request of a room with a balcony, preferably at the back and a higher floor for a little privacy as it was our anniversary. We got a reply stating this was no problem. What a shame that we arrived we ended up with a room with a small terrace directly in front of the pool which allowed everybody to see into the room and for me to have a view of the wrong end of some topless sunbathers - not nice!

After a bit of complaining , which we never do, we were given a room at the back - better we thought until we got inside and realise there was no balcony - just a small terrace which was the walkway for 5 other apartments. The room had a bed on a mezzanine level which was awful and was like sleeping in a tomb.

We asked the rep if there was another hotel on the island we could move to as this hotel was very disappointing - she told us there wasn't one of this standard. Neither myself nor my husband could actually see what the standard was - did a few toiletries and an IKEA lampshade make this a high standard?

The staff at the hotel eventually moved to us to a 'lower standard ' room. Well, this room had a fantastic balcony and view so I didnt care that it was 'lower standard', although I couldnt actually see the difference - except that it didnt have an IKEA lampshade.

One thing I would expect a hotel of this 'standard' to offer is a kettle in the room but no, just a very small boiling pot. Last year we stayed in the Aegean View Apartments in Santorini and, although half the price of the Bellonias, they had full kitchen facilities which included a kettle ...... oh and absolutely fantastic sea views.

It was impossible to get around the pool at the Bellonias or have a beach bed because unless you got up at 7am and put a towel down, there were none left. I did note that in the hotel's welcome book it states that the reserving of sunbeds etc is prohibited - really!

We asked about the free internet access that we had seen advertised - oh no this wasnt free.

The only good thing about this hotel was the breakfast and the lovely waiting staff who were very friendly and did a fantastic job.

Don't bother staying here.

My wife and i have just returned from santorini where we got married and enjoyed our honeymoon..We stayed at the bellonias last year as seen in my previous review and decided last year that we would be returning to the Bellonias for our honeymoon. I cannot fault this hotel or the staff,the service,food,politeness and overall attitude of the staff was amazing,nothing was too much trouble. It was so nice returning as there were so many familiar faces and we were so suprised to find a large bottle of champagne in our room on the evening of our wedding waiting for us from all of the staff at the hotel. The Bellonias may not be the cheapest hotel in kamari and there are very few bad gotels in the resort as a lot of our guests will testify to,but all i can say is that when you sit by the pool and people walk past on the front,everybody and i mean everybody stops to admire this hotel,pool area and cocktail bar. Its such a wonderful place to stay and if your budget can stretch a little please please please stay here,you will not be disappointed. Yes we did stay in the executive suite and then the honeymoon suite which is at the top end of the tariff but this does not affect the service one bit as last year we stayed in a standard twin at the rear of the hotel and received the same warm welcome and flawless service. The breakfasts are always well stocked with cereals,fruit,eggs,bacon,croissants etc etc and sitting on the beach front looking out across the sea with the sun shining high in the sky is only way to start your day on this magical island. We have been every year for the last 4years and each time we leave its like leaving an old friend behind,we have made so many friends over there and if you haven't been before you WILL fall in love with the island and its people,i promise you. My advice is to book directly with the hotel as there are not many tour operators that book package deals here and when they do they are quite expensive so contact them directly. Flight wise if you need to travel on any other day than a tuesday (first choice,thomas cook,thomson,monarch) or thursday(thomson only) then i would suggest flying Aegean who fly everyday from stanstead to athens with a connecting flight to santorini..its not direct but only adds about 2hrs journey time on to your overall journey which is nothing...

We stayed at Bellonias Villas for 7 nights from the 31st September and I can honestly say we had the best holiday ever!

We booked the flights and accommodation separately but had a studio which was extremely well furnished with a new bathroom, just simple and white and immaculately clean. We had only booked 3 nights as we felt we may move on the Oia but as soon as we arrived we checked that we could stay on as it was so lovely and perfectly situated.

The location is directly on the promenade of the beach, we visited the rest of the Island but would definitely recommend Kamari to stay in as even though it is not as dramatic as Oia and Imergolvili, the beach is great and there are any amount of decent restaurants and bars to go to.
The food at the hotel was the best we had on the Island though, especially the home made burger with fries. The prices are also surprisingly reasonable!
The funniest thing about staying at Bellonias was that people take pictures of you sunbathing as the hotel looks so amazing on the seafront!

We will be going back next year without a doubt!

We had an absolutely amazing time at Bellonias Villas. All the staff are so friendly and welcoming and do anything they can to help you. The location is superb, right on the beach and with all the bars and restaurants around. It is only minutes from the airport. We booked a taxi in advance with the reception and it was €20.

The rooms are exactly as the website however, I do understand a previous reviewers comments as in reality they are a little bit old and ours had a kind of strange layout with a studio feel but a seperate bedroom too. However, they are spotlessly clean and comfortable. They are cleaned everyday and as much fresh towels as you want. The kitchen is not great but we didn't go there to cook only store water and beer in the fridge!. We had two tvs which was very convenient and air con in the bedroom.

The pool is lovely as is the section on the beach for guests. The food in the restaurant bar is really lovely, fresh and tasty. We did not have one bad meal at all. Breakfast runs until 10 and has a great selection. All the bar and restaurant staff are wonderful and made our stay a pleasure.

We loved it so much we wanted to book to go back next year. We will definitely be back.

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel....and the staff and facilites are above the norm...I travel alot and these kind of people (staff) do not come by everyday...it is quite the unique team....it comes from the heart not because they have to and it's their job but because they want to make you feel 100% confortable and at ease! ....There is no question when I return to Santorini, I don't have to look for any other accomadations this is the ONLY hotel on Santorini as far as I'm concerned!

Thank a million to the staff at the Bellonias Villas, once again for making me feel like your true friend and family!
I will miss you all!
