Myself and my wife stayed here for 10 nights with our 2 year old.
They staff were incredibly helpful, friendly and attentive throughout our stay and the food was some of the best we had while we were on Crete.
We're not the kind of people who want to stay and eat in our accommodation for an entire holiday, but after sampling a lot of the other restaurants in the area, the Bella Vista really does exceed most of them...and that's not because the local restaurants are bad, the chef at the Bella Vista is just really VERY good.
The pool was cleaned daily and well looked after.
We couldn't recommend the Bella Vista enough. A quiet and convenient base to visit Crete with a child without having to dodge mopeds and drunk holidaymakers on the coast.
What a wonderful little hotel. The owner/manager was so helpful and friendly. It is a bit far from the town of Hersonissos, so if you dont have transport speak to the manager )I forget his name) and he will help you get a great deal on a scooter. Go with one with insurance to be safe. What a great place. Would go back in a heartbeat.
We are back a couple of weeks and wanted to say what a great place the Bella Vista is.
From the moment we arrived nothing was a problem we completely relaxed and the staff at the hotel are outstanding. We had our 14 year old Granddaughter with us and she was completely happy which is a good plus all the staff looked after her
TheBella Vista is only a few minutes from the 'Old village square' where there are quite a few good Taverna' and of course the Village Inn Pub which is a good place to have a beer in a nice surrounds without the need to eat.
We had Breakfast each day and they were very good quality and you could have your choice from the menu cooked fresh, I would recommend this and the BBQ night was outstanding with copious amounts of food of a very good quality and Geek dancers if the numbers permit. Dimitri, Alex Melanie and Stella go out of their way to ensure you are fully looked after and are a fantastic credit to both the Bella and Crete nothing is a problem.
The Mythos beer in the ice cold glasses are a must and my wife recommends the cocktails
We will definitely return hopefully next year and look forward to it, thank you
Just returned from an 11 night b&b stay at Bella Vista. We were greeted on arrival by Dimitris and a welcome drink, we chose an ice cold Mythos, very refreshing. Following are drink we were shown to room 21, third floor over looking the pool. Decent size kitchen dinner, fully equipped kitchen although we only used the fridge and kettle. Nice bathroom with decent power shower. Bed was comfy, double wardrobe with plenty of hangers and a second balcony over looking the front of the hotel and road. Road is very quiet. Air con is available at 6.00 euros per day, we paid for this and were glad we did as there was a heatwave during our stay.
I can recommend staying b&b as the breakfast was excellent, you can select anything off the menu and it is freshly cooked and served with either tea or coffee and fresh orange juice. Lunch and evening meals were the same all fresh produce and expertly cooked by either Alexis or Dimitri's. I can also recommend the Greek night held every Saturday (if numbers permit).
Pool area is well set out with very comfortable sunbeds and none of this having to get up at silly o'clock to put your towels out. During are entire stay there wasn't a single towel put out before 9 o'clock.
Hotel is very multi national with guest coming from all over europe which adds to the atmosphere of the hotel.
I cannot fault the hotel in anyway and can only thank Dimitris, Alexis, Melanie and Stella for all their hard work and when required will go the extra mile to make your stay even more enjoyable.
If your looking for a relaxed atmosphere, great food and comfortable apartments I can 100% recommend Bella Vista.
We will return in the future.
We are just back from having a great family holiday at Bella Vista . Very clean apartments and nothing was to much trouble for Dimtri and Alex. The food was excellent
especially BBQ night and the traditional Greek dancing was a lot of fun. We will be back again soon.
