We had a great time at Bella Santorini l. The place is very near to black beach ( 5 mins walking) and has comfortable rooms. The owner is very courteous and helpful. We had a nice stay. The beach has some excellent restaurants and a nice view. Super for lazing around.
My sister and I truly enjoyed Bella Santorini and it’s staff. They will make you feel like family and they were so helpful in planning excursions. The breakfast is well rounded with something for everyone. It is a short walk to the beach and near the best restaurants on the boardwalk. Skip Oia, where shopping is the main attraction. Go South for the sun, sand and fun!
I first contacted Bella Santorini a few days before I arrived, as I wanted to arrange a lift from the airport. I got a response back a few hours later and everything was arranged really quickly and easily. We were picked up at the airport by the nicest man who had our names on a board. Refused to let us carry any bags and very really friendly. Turns out he also works at the hotel as the maintenance man and every morning he gave us a wave with a big smile and a hello! Really nice man with a really nice voice! We arrived at the hotel way before check in and were greeted by a lovely lady named Lina. She made us feel at home straight away and ushered us in for the first of our delicious breakfasts that week. The food was plentiful and every bit tasted amazing. Lina at reception was brilliant and assisted us with everything we asked. On that first day, she told us all about the local area and what was accessible, advised on the best modes of transport and recommended some of the best things to do on the island. It really was a wonderful welcome. All of the staff at the hotel are fabulous. Each morning at breakfast we were greeted by a young lady who was always friendly with a smile and a warm hello. There wasn't a staff member we met who wasn't lovely. We stayed in the Honeymoon Villa which was cleaned everyday to a really high standard. In my opinion the pictures don't do it justice as it was absolutely beautiful. We got fresh towels everyday and the cleaner was lovely also. The villa is a great size with a huge bed, the mattress was really comfy too. The outside terrace was very spacious with loungers and a separate dining table area. The hot tub on the terrace was a huge added bonus and really helped to relax after long days. The pool area is also really nice and there was a really nice choice of different seating areas. There are cats that roam the property but are really well looked after and don't come too close or annoy you at all. The beach is about 5 mins walk away. There is a supermarket nearby and lots of restaurants along the seafront. Definitely handy. If you want to see a bit of the island I would definitely get a Quad bike! An excellent way to see the island! Would highly recommend to everyone! Had an absolutely wonderful time!! Definitely down to the excellent service at the hotel!
We visit Bella santorini in october for our honeymoon and we welcome from lina and her team .every day we had a home made breakfast next to the amazing gorgeous pool.our room was cleaned every day with fresh towel and so cleaned the room Lina reccomend is some tour that we trust her and every thing was amazing. I read some bad reviews before we come to Bella and definanately it's not true really.ithink the people who wrote that reviews should be strange for all of their life and couldn't see what Bella santorini is. The hospitality and the feeling of having a friend in a new place is something that you never found in other hotel Definitely we recommend this hotel in santorini and we will return back!
We booked here a room and breakfast for a week in September 2017. We received a lovely warm welcome despite the lateness of our arrival. Easy check in and straight to our room, we left our things and went out in search of dinner. Only a few minutes walk and we were at the beach where there were many restaurants. It was very late so we a limited choice of eateries and settled on a Giro which was delicious. The room at Bella Santorini was very spacious, a large living area with a sofa/bed, fridge, and sink unit, we had a good bathroom and specious bedroom, there was a large wardrobe just outside the bathroom in the main living area. We also had a safe and air conditioning. Outside we had a patio area with table and chairs to sit out; we tended t get breakfast and eat it on our balcony. This tended to bring the stray cat running to us; we did not mind them, a couple of kittens and there mum, but one would try to get in the room if you let it! our neighbour from the USA was terrified of cats; which is why i have mentioned it. On our first night the air con kept tripping the electric, initially we thought it was a general power cut but in the morning we realised it was our room. We reported this and it was fixed immediately. We were told there was a leak in the unoccupied room upstairs and had we not found our fault the damage could have been costly! We also had a leaky shower head, again this was replaced straight away. The room was cleaned everyday to a very high standard, the fresh towel and bedding was excellent. The breakfast was excellent and plentiful catering for all tastes. The fruit and greek yogurt was my favourite, there was certainly plenty of choice and the food replensihed throughout breakfast. I was not too keen on the coffee a little too weak for my taste - everything else great. We did not spend much time at the apartment preferring to be on the beach and diving, however there was a bar and a lovely pool on the site, great if you have children. There is a warm welcome at Bella Santorini, everyone is helpful and friendly and can provide lots of information about where to go and what to do should you need that.
This is a great place to stay! The staff was super friendly and accommodating. They provide breakfast every morning and drinks by the pool at the bar. Rooms were comfortable and clean. And within walking distance of the beautiful Perissa Beach! I highly recommend staying at this lovely establishment.
Dear Bela Santorini, It was a interesting experience to say the least. Although the lady of the reception and all the stuff were lovely and we felt very welcomed, there are plenty of room for improvement. The room given to us was not up to the standards shown on the pictures and we had to pay extra for an upgrade (in cash), and we had to wait 2 nights to get a better room, there was no pool view from our room, for what I saw, no room has pool view directly. The upgraded room was nice if compared to the one we got upon arrival But the pictures on the website gives another impression, they seem so much nicer and bright and luxurious, when in reality it is slightly different. The breakfast again, on the pictures it looks really nice and rich, but we have to keep asking for fresh eggs, as it was cold and there was not as rich as in the pictures. Please see our critics not a personal level but as way of improving and making it more honest and up to the level of the pictures places on the internet. The whole paying in cash is also a bit disturbing as seems that something is not right, when you don't accept credit cards or debit cards for payments. We would like one day to go back and feel you warm embrace and see that the hotel has really improved and is up to the standards that its ought to be. Our hugs and friendliness was from the heart and I hope that yours were also, and do see those critics as a positive point for a betterment of the place, as for the team has its heart and mind at the right place, its the hotel that needs to be in shape to live up to its full potential.
We felt warmly welcomed here by the staff. After an initial room change we had a lovely view and was able to sleep with the doors a windows open to the sea. The beach was easy walking distance and had a wide variety of food choices. The black beach was so unique. A quick trip to the port from here but a car is a must if you want to sightsee. Fira was a quick trip away. Oia was further out and a scenic drive. Santo Winery was nearby and had amazing sunset views and great local wine. They suggested a catamaran sail which was beautiful and a good value too. A great value and quiet location. Thank you Lena!
Having read a few positive reviews and looked at the photos on Expedia - My partner thought this would would be a nice place to stay. Firstly it is miles away from anywhere - you need to hire a car. The initial room they gave him was disgusting - not even a proper shower, you had to hold a hand held shower and crouch down by the sloping roof to have a shower in a sort of wet room!! No complimentary toiletries, and the room itself was cramped and very drab - not like the bright ones in the pictures. It was late at night when they arrived and were too tired to complain. It was like staying in a 2* guest house! The breakfast the next day looked nothing like the picture of the buffet, either. He complained and had to fork out another 100 euros to change room as they said they had booked a basic twin room !!! (I thought a studio was more than a basic room) - they were having none of it and said that was the only option. - The second room was better but nothing like the pictures - though it did have a proper shower! Initially we were quite encouraged by their offer to arrange a taxi pickup at the airport, however this is not a hotel to would not recommend Very very disappointing - shame on you Expedia for giving it a 4 star rating. 2/3 star much more like it - try staying there and seeing for yourselves.
We stayed at Bella Santorini 2nd-9th Sept 2017. It's a lovely family run hotel and the staff made the holiday memorable for so many reasons. We arrived late at night close to midnight but Lena and her staff were on hand to help us with our luggage and then provide food and drink for some weary travellers despite being so late. Having 3 children in tow they accommodated us in every way possible and made sure that our stay was a pleasurable one. The pool is excellent for the kids and a good size. Although it would provide a lovely relaxed setting for couples also with the laid back music. Sunbeds were readily available. The room was extremely clean and comfortable with some breathtaking views. We had a hot tub which was clean and an excellent way to relax after a day at the pool. Each day we were treated to some home cooked Greek dishes which were sublime. And when we mentioned to Lena we were looking for a good fish restaurant she said not to worry and went to the fish market and provided with us some wonderfully cooked fish dishes. The staff are a credit to the hotel and were able to assist with every need. Our children had such a good time that there were a few tears at departure time. I couldn't recommend this hotel more. A big thank you to Lena and all her staff. Lots of Love, Michael, Jemma and family!
