Location, staff, pool, beach Beds were uncomfortable, hard to sleep with music blasting from club next door, TV fuzzy and remote half broken, air conditioning doesn't cool off the sleeping loft very well, jacuzzi near pool was gross, some chairs next to the pool were broken and dangerous to sit on
Nice self contained rooms on 2 levels. Close proximity to all taverna's and facilities. Short walk to beach. Pool and area clean but starting to look a bit run down.
The hotel was in a good central location Many things we didn't like about this hotel and it was so bad that we decided to end our stay early and pay the excessive cancellation fee. Bathroom was smelly and was very hard to mask the odours, it took 5 mins for the hotwater to warm up and the towels were worn out. Breakfast was inedible, pool was mouldy, deck chairs were broken and staff were not professional and always unavailable.
Nice relaxed atmosphere Just slight confusion over taxi payments
Generous breakfast, nice pool. Room was a little dark. Fridge and stove but no dishes, cooking utensils or cutlery!
The hotel was very good for the price. The pool was good and it was only a short walk to the centre of Oia. The staff were very friendly and even came and picked us up when we couldn't find the hotel. Breakfast was not included in the price. There was not map for the hotel on the website so it was difficult to find the hotel when we got there.
They upgraded us to a suite with no charge, since it was our honeymoon. The room was nice and the staff were very helpful. Breakfast was very good, and the complimentary bottle of wine as a welcome was very appreciated.
The service is excellent. The owner kindly upgraded our 1x double bedroom and 1x triple bedroom to suite and it was totally amazing! I like the complimentary wine offered and placed nicely on the desk when you stepped into your room. The view was excellent. There is a small path across the mainroad towards the city centre which take less than 10 minutes to reach. However, it is a bit steep for old
We enjoyed our stay at Amerisa Suites, although we requested a room with a view, it actually faced a back street. Our room was clean and had everything we needed, even if we weren't in it much. Breakfast was enough and the gentleman who served the breakfast, showed us to our room and seemed to do everything else was very helpful. We hired a 4 wheel motorbike from the hotel but in retrospect, we would have done it ourselves to get a newer, better bike. The brochure said they supplied the room with a bottle of water daily but they didn't. we hired a motor bike from here and although it got us around, we could've got a better one ourselves.
Amerisa Suites was amazing. Our favorite place. Petros picked us up from the ferry and was incredibly nice and helpful. We had some problems booking a future ferry ride, and he helped us get through the situation. George from the front desk was extremely accommodating, and answered any question we ever had. There was free internet at the hotel as well. We were upgraded to a honeymoon suite with a private hottub, balcony and swimming pool at no extra charge!
The people who ran the hotel (I believe George Kalfagian and another young lady) were extremely helpful and kind. George drove me to my meeting the first day because I was lost and was late. I had cut short my visit because of travel changes and they allowed me to check out early. The facilities for a quick shower and toilet use after checking out is excellent. I will use this hotel again and will recommend it to friends.
The staff are very nice. The location is ok, even though we must say it's quite noisy as near busy street and they have very thin wall, but it's fine for us.
the free upgrate to some better rom you cant realax or sit outside of the room or on the pool site because the hotel is locatet in some 180 grad turn from the mainstreat who the nois from cars and motorbikes gos 24 hours. If you have wet feets the floor get dirt marks because of the dust from the trafik
Great hotel, albeit a bit smoky for our tastes (but all of Greece is). Could walk to Fira center easily. Room was nice and clean. We stayed in the 4 bed hotel and everyone fit comfortably.
Staff, comfortable room, breakfast. It was on the main road. Noisy.
Hard to beat for the price point. The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. Highlights: 1) The staff: Never saw anyone at the hotel who WASN'T smiling. They went above and beyond to provide relevant and useful advice, arrange any excursions, and improve the stay. 2) The facilities: The common areas were beautiful, the room was spacious and comfortable. 3) The convenient location: The hotel is located across from a couple shops (including a grocery store) and just down the street from the nightlife and tourist attractions- without being so close that you have to hear the bass of the clubs all night (unless you are into that!) Santorini is renowned for its panoramic views of the beach- this location does not provide that. Also, the rooms are not sound proof so if you are a light sleeper it could be an issue.
The personal service was wonderful. The fellow that works there even carried one of our bags up all the stairs to the street level...unexpected assistance that was greatly appreciated, thank you :)) The view was to die for and the sunsets were amazing. We had a great balcony and could even use the wifi outside!! One friendly suggestion - perhaps a longer shower curtain or higher shower surround to prevent water all over floor.
Very good location, nice pool area and terraces, excellent staff, good with fridge in the room and the possibility to bring your own drinks outside. Rooms are more 3 star standard but the outdoor hotel area is very nice which compensate.
The views, the wonderful staff and the breakfast served on the balcony every morning . Great for couples None
Location is great Bathroom toilets are in a real tight space Beautiful location, excruciating walk
when we complained see the below we got upgarded to a lovely hotel. Except we had to stay one more night in Athina we were underneath the breakfast terrace and everytime someone moved a chair to sit down it would be noisy in our room. We were next to the pool and when the filters were turned on in the morning it had a loud humming noise in our room. The bed was very old and everytime one of us moved it was squeak. Because of the above it was not worth the price
The view was amazing! The staff was very helpful. The beds are uncomfortable.
It was a quiet hotel, with friendly staff and generally good service. A perfect place to escape from the world. I had to ask for the bed linen to be changed on one day.
The staffs are very nice. we loved the environment. and it is close to the Fira center, just few walking time. lovely hotel!!!!
Location, location, location... Curtains too thin, bathroom less lights, a/c behind the curtains, bed could have been bigger in size.
The staff are very professional and work hard to please their clients. We loved the proximity of the hotel to everything we wanted to see in downtown Fira, the suggestions made by Ana the manager, and the handling of the overbooking issue. For the question about the usefulness of the reviews, there are not any displayed yet.
The staff was always extremely helpful and friendly. Wonderful and sweet location. Everything nice and clean. Site is located in the centre of Fira but still really quiet. A place to relax.
This hotel was excellent! Great location, helpful staff and very relaxing by the pool. Most important to know are directions as website is not accurate and no pick up from airport or ferry offered. Walk up the pedestrian street (Main St) over the cobble stones and walk up the hill about 600m, walk past Hertz and turn left just after Sun Sand & Sports and you will see the hotel. There are no signs and most locals don't know where it is.
Super place to stay in Fira. Location is fantastic and plenty of room. A quiet place in the centre of town. Htel staff go out of their way to make you feel special..
The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the Fira location was convenient. The hotel, an updated former mansion, was very charming. The view is not that spectacular since the hotel is not at the edge of the cliff and is surrounded by other buildings. I would have preferred a view that shows more of the sea and volcano.
Central location, clean, nice staff and hotel.
Aria Lito was a lovely place that provided the perfect atmosphere for our stay. The staff were excellent and went out of their way to help.
The Villas were family run and for the money we paid I thought it was excellent value. I little way out of main town but within walking distance of about 10 minutes. If you have a moped or quad bike its with 3 minutes Not the hotel only real bug bear was the building site that was going on next door. No mention of this on your site or from the villa owner. Still it was good value for money as the owners made us most welcome.
The owner who was very helpful and pleasant. The location was peaceful but convenient and close to the caldera. The room was spotless and well appointed.
great service, friendly people, felt at home
The staff and owners were very helpful and did all they could to ensure our stay was pl;easant
5 minutes far from centre of Fira,nice decoration!staff was very friendly and helpfull!
the room is so so so beautiful and the host is quite kind person. the hotel is located in a very quiet place but just 15 minutes walk to Fira city center. it will be so wonderful to live in this hotel.
Friendliness of the hotel staff, and cleaness. Nice breakfast
lovely place to stay Not easy to find the villas in the frist time
everything is perfect it is a little far from the bus station, but it is not far from the fira city center
Nice, friendly welcome and free pick-up from airport; superb pool at our doorstep; spacious clean, white room with extra bed; Noisy waste pipes, poor TV reception, poor flushing toilet , poor breakfast
The location was excellent, a walk into Fira town and close to the bus station to go to the beaches The price was high, did not live up to the price.
The girls (Elefedera) were delightful and beautiful. The pool was lovely. Bus service was terrific and the booking desk was complete with all information. Breakfast could have had cold milk. Warm milk at breakfast. Very busy street.
family-run hotel / very friendly and helpful staff / great location on edge of caldera / good breakfast included in rate / rooms are spacious and very clean and well-appointed
My stay at the hotel was fantastic! The staff were great, the location was great and the room was immaculate! I would not think twice about staying there again - I'll definitely be back!
The hotel is absolutely beautiful! The room was really nice and the views were great, the location is great, just 2 blocks out of town so it is quiet but an easy walk to the center. Front dest woman was unfriendly and not at all helpful
Very friendly and helpful hotel staff. Very clean hotel, and a very good location. I didn't like it when I was not given the room I had selected when I arrived on the first night. However I was later given a room of my choice on the subsequent nights
Very conveniently located. It was a nice facility, with a nice pool.
New, clean, swimmigpool, resonable distance from Fira (300 meter), WiFi. Location is terrible. Particular if you choose the premium priced volcano view rooms. You will probably not sleep due to traffic. Volcano view - yes - but with a busy road right outside your balcony and a dump right on the other side distorting the view terribly. It needs to be said that we were given a different room without discussion.
free internet (in lobby),modern and clean beds terrible,small rooms,booking requests ignored(twin beds),tv reception,long way from city in summer,no shuttle organised from airport--had to pay for taxi
Location near beach price: too expensive during high season (Veggera is a 3-star-type hotel); food was so so; but nice restaurant choices nearby
Location, the villa's exterior, landscaping This hotel is not a 4 star hotel. At best, it's 2 and a half. Rooms are very, very basic, plain, poorly decorated, furniture is extremely cheap and in bad condition (rusty), no room service, not even bellboys, in general, staff didn't want to do anything for us.
Great location, right next to the beach Quite expensive for what didn't feel like a 4 star hotel.
Friendly and helpfull staff at the reception desk. Nice clean room and bathroom. Great location. Would have expected beach parasols to be free of charge for hotel residents.
Nice room, proximity to beach The hotel reception staff permantly trying to rip you off. Not very helpful unless you want to get cash from them with a 3% charge or wash your clothes at 3€ per item. Tried to put us in an inferior room
Good pool with shade during the day. Close to beach and restaurants. AC could be better in the room.
The grounds were beautiful and the staff was friendly and helpful. The store was well stocked. The meals in the restaraunt were very good. The drinks at the bar were the best prices I found on the island. The bath tub was great. Only one on my trip. The bed and the pillows were unbelievably hard. The most uncomfortable of my trip.
It is 50 meters from the beach. There is lot of restaurants and bars close to the hotel. The girl working at the reception was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast next to the beach is good. The beach close to the hotel is made of pebbles. It is a bit far from the port but fairly easy to find the hotel.
very nice place, reasonable price, across the road from the beach
The pool was kind of nice. Roy in the reception area was a doll and helpful. Where do I start? First, this is NOT a typical 4 star hotel! More of a 2 star hotel. Rooms are small and cheap. TV's don't show many channels (5? all in greek) and was probably manifactured in the mid 80s. Balcony in the appartments was small and everybody could see in. Clotheshangers were probably find on a dumpster somewhere (different colors and cheap). WC area was tiny!
Great hotel, Friendly and helpful staff especially the girls on reception and pool-side bar. Nice big pool, pool-side bar had great food and rooms were spotlessly clean.
good value for money breakfast is poor - bathroom very difficult to deal with - everything was soaked in a minute....
Large poolarea, with a good poolbar menu. Small room, no fresh water, no light on bathroom.
Cleanliness of the room and hotel in general, very welcome staff, bread and honey for the breakfast, distance to the beach and to the bus stop. If you stay there for a long time be prepared to the same breakfast.
Family owned hotel. great service. nice people. rooms were big n clean and bathroom relatively large. less than 5 min walk to perissa beach. a number of shops and restaurants available beachside. simple breakfast. car/bike rental shops located nearby (recommended). Bus stop is less than 5 minutes away but buses take about 15-30 minutes to arrive and the bus to Fira takes 30-45 minutes.. private transportation is better. we will be staying here again on our next visit to santorini. All was good. nothing bad.
We were a group of 8 and all agreed that the staff was excellent. They were helpful, accommodating, chearful and always there to serve. It was also nice to have them provide information about Santorini as needed. The facility was very clean and quite nice. The rooms were nice and the common areas had awesome views of the surrounding mountains. Great Stay! Highly recommended Some street noise
The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was HUGE, espcially for the price.
We were welcomed into a lovely spotless Home.The family there do anything to make you feel comfortable. The room was huge with a Balcony, comfortable beds, refrigerator and large bathroom. Clean sheets and towels daily.Air con good. Breakfast very basic but adequate.No swimming pool. We were very happy there and would go again. I cannot think of anything!
It is a recommended hotel. Clean room and hospitality. It accepted gently though a lot of blunders were done. I really appreciate your kindness. I want to go in the future.
Good hospitality of the owners. The atmosphere of the hotel was relaxing, spatial. Convenient for the Perissa beach.
I appreciated the spaciousness and good taste in the art and furnishings. It was lovely, laid back, quite elegant in fact. I would happily return. Our toilet did not work right but it was fixed promptly so it was no big deal. I had absolutely no complaints.
The manager (owner?) was wonderful...he picked us up at the bus stop in Perissa and even dropped us off on our way back to Fira. Our room was spacious, bright and very clean...we even had a bath tub, which was a treat after adventuring around the continent. The hotel is just behind Perissa's main strip, which made for a short walk to the beach and a quiet and relaxing evening. All in all, a fantastic place to stay.
Very nice family-run hotel. tidy and beautiful. totally feel like at home. The location is excellent if you want to go the beach. need travel to FIra and OIA
the palce is veautiful and nera the seaside, the staff is very kind and the swimming pool is very clean, it is an heaven on heart!
Lovely setting at top of resort. Apartments a little dated bit still very nice. Pool just a bit too small for me, though my wife loved it. George the owner is as available as you want him to be and when you do talk to him is a good guide for the island.
Perfect location, tucked away from the busy roads but still very close to restaurants and the beach. Villas are really quiet which we loved. Swimming pool is small but big enough for a good splash. There is lots of shadow around so no need to burn. Villa cleaned every day by a very friendly lady. Villas are basic but sufficient, so no, there are no real negative points
The best thing is the location on the beach.
The staff. We didn't like the keysystem. The aircondition worked only when the key was in the keyholder. At night, in case of emergency, you would not be able to open your door since everything goes dark when you remove the key to open the door. The system should have some kind of delay function as other hotels have.
wonderful staff, perfect location, nice pool and very clean rooms. I will go back for sure to Villa Valvis and I recommend it to everyone. I felt home. Ciao Marina!!
Quiet environment, beach on walking distance. Car parking. Excellent swimming pool. Hotel staff was very polite.
the staff was very kind and the postion of this hotel is good.
The kindness of the members of the staff Nothing in particular
The situation (quiet but near everything), the swimmingpool, nice people and a spacious room with kitchen. The only thing we can think of is the smell of the toilets because of the water.
I liked the location. Villa Valvis was located next to the best beach on the island, in my opinon. It was within walking distance to the beach, to a delicious and cheap 24-hour bakery, two markets, and numerous beach- front restaurants (of which we highly recommend Ntomatina). I liked the swimming pool, and the style of the building. I liked the hotel-manager who was always there and answered all of our questions. It was a great price, too! We were able to see the rest of the island via a rented atv for only 7 Euros a day. It was nice that the hotel had wifi, but it only worked out by the pool, not in the rooms. The bathroom had an odor problem - I think because of the drainage. It wasn't unbearable, but the room always smelled a bit bad because of it. The air conditioning was in a bad location, blowing over the bed as we were sleeping...so we were either too cold, in which case we'd turn it off, and then we'd wake up from being too hot, and have to turn it on again. (better than no Air Conditioning, though!). There was no telephone in the room. Also, we left our camera on the bed one morning, and discovered it missing after the maid had cleaned the room. We searched around, and asked the manager for help, and found the camera in the pile of sheets ready to be washed - it would have been ruined had we not noticed in time!
the bed was really uncomfortable, the pillows were too hard. the room was too small and the bathroom tiny, with no curtain in the shower.
The Staff was very helpful, friendly and uncomplicated. The room was nice and it was excellent to have a pool for a wake up swim in the morning. The beach is very close, only 300m, as well as supermarket, bakery, travel agency, bus stop and internet café. no
Very neat hotel, clean & complete rooms. Nice swimming pool. There was a good welcome from the nice owner of the hotel. She told everything we needed to know for our stay and was always available to answer any questions. Quiet enviroment but everything is on walking distance. No breakfast available at the hotel, but a very good 24h bakery in 100m!
Transportation to the port is difficult
Den fantastiska utsikten och ett bra poolområde. Restaurangen hade mycket god mat på kvällen. Lunchmenyn var inte så upphettsande. Poolsängarna var stenhårda, de borde köpa in lite sköna madrasser. Barnens rum som låg vid poolområdet var inte prisvärda, de var mörka med ett fönster och inte fönster i badrummet samt att man upplevde att de hade källarkänsla.
Stelios Place is very convenient and cosy located, just a minute walk from the black sand beach of Perissa. The staff is very hospitable, friendly and helpfull. We had a nice room with a balcony. It was nice to relax in a chair around the hotel's swimming pool.
Clean rooms. We found a nice Pizza restaurant nearby, open till 11.30pm, all the pizza and pasta are cook upon order ... hot and nice ! location not good, u will not able to walk out from the hotel after sunset as the area is too dark ...
Excellent accommodation run by a friendly family only to willing to help when asked. Great facilities.
Transfer to airport is very good and the owner is very nice! We travel from Fira by bus and is not easy to find it.
The family was super nice and the dad picked us up right from the port. It was super close to the beach and the pool was perfect. The town (Perissa) was quite empty during this time of year.
very good location,pelopes very nice,good piace
The staff are fantastic. Very friendly and nothing was a problem. Great Frappes!!
Great location! Nice family running the spot. Definitely recommend the place!
Staff were lovely and helpful. Rooms were very clean
The Stelios family is very friendly and will help you with anything you need. We appreciated getting picked-up and dropped-off at the ferry. Bookings for day-trips can be made at the hotel itself which makes things a lot easier. The rooms are simple but very clean.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Danezis - it is a family run hotel and the whole family were absolutely wonderful - so welcoming and friendly. Our room was very clean and the air conditioning a god send! Our balcony was lovely and had super views across to Fira and also out to the sea on the east coast of the island. The pool is fabulous - clean and well maintained with plenty of sun loungers available too. We spent most of our time relaxing here and loved it! The hotel is conveniently positioned in the middle of the island, so it's easy and quick to travel everywhere from Perissa to Oia, so long as you have a car / bike, which are fairly cheap to hire (approx 20 euros p/day for a quad bike). We would definitely advise that hiring a bike or car is key to staying at the hotel, only because there is no catering available and so eating out is a must (if you want hot food!) - Messaria is only a 10-15 minute walk away, but the choice of restaurants is quite limited if you have to visit there every night of your holiday.
Central location: It is close to the bus depo and town centre but very quiet (at least in our room during our stay). Convenience: There is a supermarket across the street from the hotel, it is really important to have bottled water in large quantity all the time in Santorini, because the tap water is not recommended for drinking. Size of the room: Our room is large enough even by North American standards. Breakfast room: It is large and bright by the swimming pool. You can also sit under the embrellas of the pool. Not enough furniture. There's a desk plus two small night tables, this is all the furnitures in our room besides the beds and the luggage rack. Like many european hotels, the bathroom is very small.
Staff was very friendly. Very close to town. Nice balcony. Bed was too hard. Pool was freezing!
the people were so nice to us they treated us like royalty, it was a perfect location and a fun place
Close proximity to the beach. The breakfast was low quality and served until only 10am, which is very early considering that most visitors may be bar crawling the night before.
I liked the fact that the hotel was on the beach, and that the room had air conditioning. The breakfast was terrible, and there was very little choice, one of my eggs had 8 ants in one day!! The member of staff told us that we had a room with a sea view, but we actually had a view of a building site! The staff tried to be polite, but the hotel was mainly run by two boys, one was 15 and the other 16!! Also we had asked them to collect us from the airport, but there was no one there on arrival so the holiday did not start very well!
The staff were very friendly the room was great and it was right on the beach.
Absolutely wonderful experience with the hotel and its staff - truly recommend to everyone who doens't need to be in the center of wild touristic whirlpool, but simply enjoys beach and relaxing away from the crowd. Very good equipped beach, drinks are brought right to your sunlounge ))) Many interesting places of Santorini can be reached by the bus, car or quad (our choice, and very much fun!). absolutely nothing
The pool is fine Breakfast was rather poor
very friendly and helpfull staff, everything is new = nice. And it is a rather small hotel, with a familly feeling... famillies should be aware that the beach is not child friendly, bvut you would not find that anywhere on Santorino
The room was large and spotlessly clean, with a good sized fridge. The shower was excellent and did not (unusual in Greece) soak the entire bathroom. The staff were absolutely charming. All of them....This hotel is excellent value for money..... I have stayed in the same area at hotels that are double the price and Blue Palace Bay is just as good
the staff was excellent
