Thanks to their convenient location, these pretty apartments give you easy access to the old and new areas of Crete.
The Bellino Apartments are ideally located to give you the full flavour of what Crete has to offer. Head 15 minutes down the road, and you’ll find the bars and clubs of Hersonissos. Walk 15 minutes in the other direction, and you’ll come to the quieter village of Koutouloufari.
From the outside, the Bellino looks textbook Greek. The grounds are shrouded in bright bougainvillea and the apartments are sugar-cube white. Inside, the apartments are colourful and cosy, and each one comes with a balcony or terrace and a kitchenette for home cooking.

Loved every minute of this fab holiday!!!
Stayed here for a week with my Mum & 2 teenage children & what a wonderful week we had! We travelled with Thomsons - contrary to other reviews we had no issues on arrival as we were dropped right outside the apartments & for return pick up Mr Yiannis (the owner) waited at the bottom of the road for the coach to arrive & sent taxis up to collect us so this issue now seems to have been sorted out. The apartments are situated on a hill between Hersonissos & the village of Koutoiloufari. We opted to wander up the hill in the evenings to eat in the village as we found the restaurants there to be more authentically Greek & reasonably priced plus that way it was an easier walk downhill home afterwards. The pool area was never crowded & we easily found 4 sunbeds every morning with no issues. Good size pool & quite often we would have it all to ourselves so it was almost like staying in a villa but with the added bonus of having a pool bar to be served food & drinks. There is a small breakfast / lunch menu but enough items to find something to suit everybody. Yes the apartment was basic but I'm not sure what some people expect for the price! Aircon & safe had to be paid for in cash on arrival as is the same in every apartment or villa I have stayed in previously. Also toilet paper was provided on arrival but after that it stated to buy your own which is the case in other apartments I have stayed in. The apartment was spotlessly clean & bins emptied every day by extremely hard working Soula who more or less runs this place singlehandedly during the day. Sheets changed every 3 days even though we protested to her that they really didn’t warrant being changed. Nice touch of the towels being shaped into fans on the beds on arrival too! Wifi was excellent & available throughout the whole complex even in the apartments & the pool area. We stayed in apartment 2 which is situated near to the main bar area. We had no issues with being kept awake by music from the bar – once the door was closed then it could hardly be heard & certainly never kept us awake. Soula is a little ray of sunshine! Always happy, crazy & eager to please. She works extremely hard but always finds time to stop to have a chat & laugh especially at “beer o’clock”!!! She helped make our holiday extra special! What a wonderful lovely lady! Would we go back?? Of course!! In a heartbeat!! Lovely place, friendly staff & excellent value for money! What more could we ask for??More

Hersonissos is beauitful however Bellino isn't exactly beauitful!
We stayed for two weeks here in Bellino. We were told the apartment was 2-3 stars... however when we arrived it turns out it is only 1 stars. We got into our room which was so hot expecting to turn on some air conditioning, only to find out it costs 90 euros for two weeks which we thought was absolutely pathetic considering the heat. As we unpacked too put our clothes away we opened the wardrobe to find insects which we had to kill. Bathroom - The bathroom in the apartment is extremely small and very dated. When turning on the shower the tiniest amount of water comes out . Beds - The beds made us feel utter disgust. The mattress did not have a protector on, only to fold back the sheets to find huge stains covering the whole bed, and tics! TICS! My mum was bitten in her sleep. The sheets were not cleaned as many times as supposedly we were told, as us and some friends marked the sheets to see if the mark would go, which proves the sheets were not cleaned. Self Catering Equipment - According to Thomson Travel Booklet - Bellino has "excellent cooking facilities". However again, we found this to be incorrect. The cutlery was dirty, and there is only one pan so we would not consider this a good kitchenette to cook food with. If your thinking of booking this apartment - Please consider bringing your own toilet roll as "that is something you should see to yourself" - strange. Staff - SOULA: You will meet Soula. She is a very hard working and lovely positive woman. Soula is the Bellino cleaner however she also has to do the cooking and run the bar during the day which isn't part of her contract which we thought was very unfair. She also is the only cleaner so she has to clean every single room alone, wash dry and iron all the sheets etc alone BOB (ILLIAS?) : Illias is the guy that works in the Bellino Bar in the night time. He plays music which can easily be herd from the apartment which is good and he is a nice person. Yianas (Hotel Owner Manager : At the end of our stay, we complained to Yianas about the stains on our beds.. only for a reply of "what is the problem?" - We thought this was unsatisfactory, poor and unacceptable. So yes, be warned. Hersonissos is lovely and Bellino looks beautiful from the outside, but not so beautiful on the inside. REMEMBER TO BRING TOILET ROLL, AND EXTRA CASH FOR AIRCON! Haha, anyway it was a good holiday but apartment not recomended ALSO: pool does not get cleaned: evidence: GREEN GRIME AROUND EDGE OF SMALLER POOL.More
Stayed here for a week 11th July. Room very very basic but spotlessly clean thanks to the lovely Soulla, who works very hard. Pool area really nice and again very clean. Great location situated between town and village. Ate in village every evening. Best restaurant, in my opinion, was Sergiani's, but loads to choose from. Two small negatives 1) being dropped at bottom of hill on arrival and having no idea where accommodation is (but this is being sorted by Thomsons) and 2) music from bar can be heard in Room 2 until 2 am in the morning, which can be a bit annoying if you want early night. That said I would definitely stay here again if I returned to Crete.More
An enjoyable stay in Crete
We stayed at the bellino last week for a week. The apartment was basic especially the bathroom very dated (the toilet struggled to flush). However the pool area was clean with a lovely views and the garden was beautiful. The location was good but the sloping road to get there was a struggle at times for my partner. The owner was very approachable and helpful. The real stars however were the barman illios who could not do enough for you and the incredibly hardworking Soula who was a pleasure to talk to. More
Me n a friend visited the apartments 25th June and stayed for 2 weeks. The apartments themselves are very big at all and aren't the best of rooms but we just looked at it as you don't go on holiday to spend time in the room you just sleep and get changed. They were cleaned everyday by soula. Towels and bedding changed every other day. Bins emptied daily please don't read other reviews it is very clean. She is such a good person and can't do enough for you. Mr yannis the owner he too can't do enough for you. If you do have any issues please raise them with he as he will dobwhatvhe can to make sure you enjoy your stay. Ilias behind the bar he is such a genuine guy and is such a laugh to be around. He will let you put whatever music on that u like in the bar area and uses youbtube so he can get any songs. He also does very good cocktails. We also ate food by the pool some days and it was really nice. I would definitely come back to the hotel. It was a cheapish holiday and we had a fantastic time. The hotel is ideally located 10 minute walk down to main hersonosis and the beach. Walk the same up although it is steep bank is a beautiful traditional Greek village with really nice restaurants. It was such a beautiful place. Overall it was a fantastic holiday and would definitely revisit. More
