Our room was located above the kitchen and the clattering and banging went on from around 9.30pm til midnight, this is not a problem if you are night owls. Nice balcony let down by lack of reclining seats or cushions on seats. Lovely pool with very nice sunbed arrangements, great shame that the practice of reserving beds with towels is allowed to go on. During our week stay there were two families who reserved the majority if the loungers in the sunniest spots every day. Considering that all holidaymakers pay fair money to access facilities, it shouldn't be allowed for people to "bag" the best beds at 8am and then return 2 hours later. We went to breakfast one morning at 8am and noticed that one particular woman had yet again been down and reserved her bed, by 11.45 am when she had failed to turn up we removed her towels and used the beds; when she eventually turned up she was most indignant and actually told us that she had reserved the bed. When we suggested that there was no provision for reserving sunbeds she proceeded to say "but I have done it every day", to which we kindly replied "yes, we've noticed!"
I felt there is a lack of space around the table where breakfast is laid out and people are on top of each other.
The hotel doesn't have any communal lounge areas, so on a rainy day (which we did have) you need to take shelter in your room (which we did).
Overall we felt Bellonias Villas was very nice, but not a 4star hotel, 3 star maybe. we had spent the previous week in a 2 star establishment in Firestofani and paid just a quarter of what we paid with similar facilities minus the breakfast.
Excellent location, nice large room with balcony and side sea view, very comfortable mattress on bed. Very clean, staff extremely helpful, nice. Bathroom shower facility was very nice with complimentary toiletries , water was always nice and hot and the shower had good water pressure and housekeeping always left us clean towels. Aggy, was on front of house duty every morning and is a real asset to the establishment. She is so happy, helpful and eager to please, she had such an infectious laugh; you really couldn't fail to be happy with her around. her attitude /demeanour was also very good at deflecting any possible complaints. to be fair, I would say that we had a couple of "moans" rather than complaints.
