The staff at Ira were kind and helpful in every way. They provided transfers, restaurant recommendations, general advice and a cheerful presence at all times.
Fantastic location on edge of the caldera, friendly hosts, easy walk into Fira.
the room is so nice with pool in front and view. The qwner also very kind and take care us so special.
The view from my hotel room was fantastic. All the accommodations and amenities were fabulous and the staff was excellent. It was absolutely the highlight of my trip to Greece.
The beautiful view over the caldera was absolutely incredible. The staff were all very helpful and just generally wonderful!
the wiev, the breakfast, the pool area, The too long distance to the city
A lovely comfortable hotel with fantastic views,the breakfast and dining area was very pleasant, again with wonderful views the food and service was good The hotel is situated a little to far from the town for us to walk and even though the hotel offers free transport it is limited
We had a great stay at the Lilium. The staff was very nice and helpful, the room was clean, the views were amazing, its location is a bit far from the town, but not too bad. Breakfast was good also. All in all a fantastic stay there. The bathroom had a dampy smell.
Very nice staff any beautifull view Beds were to hard on my old back :o)
Magnificent view to the caldera, comfortable spacious room (suite 303), nice pool and surrounding area. Friendly staff. It's quite a distance to reach Fira! There is, however, spacious parking space. The bathroom was too small and rather uncomfortable.
The view of the sea is excellent, so is the staff! Really doesn't get any better in my opinion. Greece is very beautiful in general, but is not a cheap trip! Local's complain about the Euro and it's impact on travel & their cost of living.
beautiful,sea sight yes
View from the hotel is fantastic Far from Fira, about 20 minutes walk! Easily solved when rented a bike.
The view was spectacular! The entire hotel staff was wonderful! We will stay there everytime we visit Santorini and recommend it to anyone visiting the island. No
First would have to be the fantastic view. The staff and service was terrific and it would have to be one of the best places to go to in this big world of ours. Absolutely loved it !!!!
It is exactly in an excellent part. It's no so far from the center and has few restaurants closer, but they are realy good! The shower is a little small in the Studio Room, like for just one person.
From the first moment we arrived we were treated like royalty and family at the same time. No detail was missed and the property was incredible. We can not wait to return!
The gentleman at the reception is extremely polite and helpful. He is very serious about his job and treats you like you are a Hollywood star! Totally loved it... the honeymoon suite was amazing!!!!... the outdoor jakuzzi is best, even in the winter months... amazing experience...
Our room seemed like it was the only room, very private, each Villa had it's own small private outside lounge area. Everything was great
Amazing Views, Awesome breakfast, staff is great!! There is nowhere else on Santorini I'd rather stay!
Loved my stay here. I came for a couple days in low season and the suites had great views, comfy bed, good hot water, the breakfast included a good selection of hot and cold foods, and the staff were exceptionally helpful. The private suites with views were a great plus. Very nice to sit out on your own balcony section and have some food or wine. Not Dana Villas specific, but be aware in low season that there are less places open around. Still there is enough.
I loved the view from our room and the friendly staff who were always happy to assist us The room was a bit small but we were still comfortable the views certainly made up for this
Everything! Satff, area, the view!!!!
very friendly staff, outstanding view, quite alot of stairs but it wasn't that bad for the view maybe better breakfast choices
the view was breathtaking each and everytime we opened the door in the morning. The steps were also a great little work out.
The manager was amazing. Very helpful and kind. He cares about his guests and their happiness. The location was breathtakingly gorgeous and the view of the Santorini sunset(which could quite possibly be the best in the world) could not have been better. This is a very romantic and comfortable place to stay.
Beautifully appointed villa with fabulous views and very friendly service. Ideal for a romantic holiday. Kitchenette worked well allowing you to spend evenings in your suite and soak up the vista. In line with the warning, you need to be aware there are lots of steps. However, staff were very considerate in making it as easy as possible.
Great spa pool overlooking the sunset.
hotel is well located to visit the island Photos of the hotels are misleading. jacuzzi impossible to use and does not add any value to the hotel. very expensive for what it is.
It's a beautifully decorated hotel situated on the cliff with the most magnificant view. Although it's 10-minutes walking from Fira, I like it even better since it's nice and quiet. Breakfast on the patio looking out the volcano is something I will remeber for a long time. When we got to the hotel there was no one there. Luckily we had a laptop with us and called the number listed on the door. It wouldn't be a problem if guests have cell phones, but with international travelers it could be difficult to make the call.
We stayed 5 nights and enjoyed it very much. We decided to take one of the bigger room (junior suite) and it was the perfect choice. Our 15 months old daughter had lots of space to play around. The staff is great and the shuttle to Mykonos very convenient. Food at the restaurant was very good and prices are fair. Elia beach is beautiful, it is very clean and the colour of the watter is just incredible.
The view was incredible from our balcony, a little minus we had a electric cable just in front of it, so to take sunset pictures you had to go on the street .The breakfast was ok. We had a hot spa in our bedroom the smell of the chlorine was there but you get use to it, also it was hard to get in to with narrow ladders . We had a couple of trouble in the room which were fixed during the day while we were away (like bad sound on TV, fridge not cooling, burned bulb).Beside these ,the location was perfect for us ,away from the center of Thira , which is a Zoo when you get 9 cruising ship in the port.
like the sea view from the room, nice breakfast a main road in front of the hotel, no privacy at all.
Spectacular views from west side rooms. 2 bathrooms. Free internet connection in rooms.
Fantastic view, the hotel staff are friendly, the was clean and big. We recomend for everyone. Fantastic place.
The hotel staff were great, very helpful and friendly, the room was very comfortable, clean and had a nice view of the island. The water in the jacuzzi was a bit cold.
We stayed 3 nights here in mid-September. The situation of the hotel is excellent, the little village of Firostefani is a little bit more authentic than Fira, and you can reach Fira on a very beautiful stroll along the cliffs. The hotel and the room is extremely clean. The breakfast is served in the room and was very good. We had a maisonette style room, a quite small jacuzzi next to the bed, from where we could see the sea on both sides of the island. From the hotel, you can book many different boat trips. Next to the hotel there are some excellent restaurants, we especially can recommend the Vanillia for its fresh fish and the small terrasse of Vallas for its excellent fresh juices and salads! All in all, an excellent choice! The car rental is actually free and would be a very good opportunity to visit the island. The problem is, you don't have insurance if you use this car, so whatever happens, you pay.... Also, the room is not very cheap, even though you get a good deal for the price. September is a very good time for travelling in these islands, the prices are a little bit better than the rest of the year and it is less crowdy. It is very windy, during the day no problem with 30 degrees, but the evenings can be cold, so take a jackett!
What we liked the most at the hotel was the magnificent breakfast, it self and the view with it from our room. The staff was always ready for us and they were caring and competent. The jacuzzi wasn't always hot has we expected.
The view was fantastic; I don't think there is a better spot on Santorini. The breakfasts were the best we ever had in any hotel. The staff at the pool/bar aera were helpful. We also enjoyed the quality sound system in the room. We found ants in the Felicity suite (on the bed and on the bathroom floor). Lots of them (I killed more than fifty) and the management didn't seem to care about our distress.
It was picturesque and serene. A definite break from reality.
Above Blue was Above all Expectations!! Excellent Staff , Breathtaking Views, Designer Rooms, and a Private Champagne Breakfast, All of which made for holiday heaven on earth!
We had the golden echo suite. It is like in the photos. Everything was perfect, 2 jacuzzi with hot water 24h, great design and luxury of the suite - it is a white cave very special, great service, breakfast with everithing (I suggest to check every dishes on the breakfast module), fantastic view, no noises. Like a dream. A little expensive.... But it's worth the cost.
This was a phenomenal hotel with fantastic views of the caldera from every suite. The service was five stars. No.
Amazing view, great hospitality, friendly staff and excellent breakfast all make our holiday unforgotable. We will be back for sure!!
staff/owner went out of their way to be helpfull, When one of our tours were cancelled they drove downtown to notify us. Very caring, room very comfortable, large by European standards. Hotel new and well looked after. Great view.
The service was phenomenal, the view was magnificent, and the value for money was unmatched. The staff were always attentive and helpful. Highly recommended as a relaxing / honeymoon destination.
watching the amazing view for hours No, everything was excellent.
the staff was very friendly, helpful and kind. our room was not good and they happily changed it for us and asked several times during our stay if we werehappy. a bit misleading on line about the rooms
staffs are very nice , the location of the hotel is great, the view from hotel room is pefect
The magnificent view of the Volcano Poor facilities
The view from our room was amazing, however, this didn't compensate for the rock solid bed, the light fitting which wasn't screwed in properly or the lack of towels in the ensuite bathroom. The Belvedere does not have a lift (it took seven flights of stairs to get to our room), nor does it have good insulation...
1-Staff -Sotiris the manager will guide to the best restaurants and best places to visit,Georgi and Sergei are great 2-the best unobstructive view of the sea 3- great pool 1-showers but we were told that this will be their winter project 2..internet..only place to get connection is in the office..again this is a winter project 3- would not reccomend to seniors who have problems with stairs..no elevator..from our room to the reception,there are 92 steps...some rooms are closer to the reception 4-breakfast needs improvement
fabulous location, excellent staff could not be more helpful only that we had to leave
Hotel is located in a nice view corner and very close to Fira town. Breakfast is fair enough, maid is nice too. But one of the receptionist is not very good who is rude to Asian customers.
The view from the room was magnificent. The location was wonderful - close to the conference center and downtown, but at a quiet and beautiful corner of Santorini. The breakfast was very tasty. The bathroom was not as nice as we expected.
The staff is very nice, our stay at the hotel was magnificent. superb view and excellent service. I recommend it very much for rommantic holiday minor things, not important
I couldn't imagine a better place for a romantic holiday! This small, boutique hotel is tucked away on the slopes of Firastefani, which means you have stunning views and plenty of peace and quiet - although if you want some night life, that's only a 15 min walk away in Fira. The staff are some of the best we've ever met - friendly, personable, excellent at pre-empting your requests, and when you need them to - they disappear to make you feel like you're in your own little world. We've been missing the mill Houses ever since we left!
The staffs were great, always helpful and with a smile. The view from the hotel is absolutely stunning and the room were awesome. We liked our breakfast very much and with a stunning view of the caldera & the sea, it just makes our trip worthwhile. Nothing, everything is perfect.
The hotel staff was fantastic, always making sure we were looked after.
Location, location, location! Stunning view! Friendly and accomodating staff. Hard to find as there was no sign for it in the area where it is located. Our mini-suite had a problem with the air conditioner which didn't work making it a bit too humid and warm. Management said they would fix it once I let them know on our departure.
Freindly helpful staff, great location Hard to find initially
The staff was helpful The rooms are overpriced. The pictures are not an accurate representation of the room we booked.
Brilliant! I couldn't have asked for a more blissful and gorgeous setting. The rooms were spotless and luxurious, the staff (especially Nenad) were warm and welcoming and the breakfasts looking out from the Caldera just breathtaking. Worth every cent. Best hotel I have ever stayed at, and I have stayed at quite a few!
The location and the delicious breakfast, the best in our trip to Greece. The room was nice and very clean too. I think the value for money is not very good. The swimming pool is very small and there is not enough space to spend the day around it.
We love the place, Santorini Island but I don`t like the hotel perhaps the hotel needs a manager
Service was great, and views were amazing at sunset
The view from the balcony and the manager was very friendly and gave us excellent service no.
Views, peaceful, location and welcoming staff nothing
Overall ambience of hotel. Situated on one of the best sites on the island. magnificent views and very central to all activities and walking distance to Fira. No complaints whatsoever. we think we were lucky to have booked such a place through the internet..We booked for three nights but stayed for four.
Everything was perfect! Amazing location!
friendly staff, eager to please, very helpful, great location
the personal approach of Manos -- view over the Caldera - terrace outside the bathroom is too basic for the price..
It's a very peaceful place. The location is great & good restaurant nearby too. The owner is extremely helpful & service is definitely one of the best I have encountered. He actually let us have the room till 9pm when we are leaving for Athens. Excellent & No complaints.
The view over the Caldera is outstanding, Host is attentive to every detail. Would stay again! nothing....
Great location for watching the sunsets. The spa was a also a great place to relax. Shops were nearby, as were some nice restaurants.
Outstanding view, very friendly host, short walk to town centre, would definitely stay again
The value of the resevation lies in the incredible view that is on your doorstep and with such easy access.
The location in Firostefani was great, restaurants all around and only 10 minutes walk from the main city of Thira but much more pleasant ! The good surprise was the jacuzzi on the terrace, with a wonderful view on the sea. The owners are really nice, the breakfast was good and well served. A place to go without any hesitation !
The view was phenomenal! The staff was helpful, kind, and friendly.
Friendly owner, good location, spectacular view from patio no shower curtain, no shade on patio, place had little charm. Recommend staying there? Yes, but not enthusiastically.
hot tub and caldera view
Nektarios who ran the hotel was fabulous. I e-mailed to say we'd be arriving at midnight on the ferry from Rhodes and he organised a transfer for us and stayed in reception until we arrived. He organised tours, quad bikes, everything. He was great. Our room (on the third and forth nights) of our stay was lovely. Perfect location - good value for money. Quiet location. Friendly staff. Lovely breakfast overlooking the caldera. Will definitely recommend hotel. As with all our booking on booking.com, I felt that we were given the smallest room in every hotel. I felt that booking.com had been given the small rooms to sell on their site. We had room #1 for the first two nights of our 4 night stay - it was smaller than the other 8 rooms, next to reception, the shower was broken, couldn't hang up the shower hose and it flooded the bathroom and the air con remote screen was cracked. We asked to move and Nektarios moved us no worries! We also listed honeymoon as our reason for travel and not once was it mentioned. Did they know..? On leaving the hotel, we saw the staff sprinkling rose petals and lighting candles for another couple's arrival :(
Wonderful view, very good location, only few minutes walked to fira (main city). no safe for valuables
Magnificent view from our room. Fantastic breakfast included. Clean. Plenty of hot water for bathroom. Polite/helpful house maid. Manager helpful. Room was tiny. Bed was hard. Lots of small repairs needed like curtain hooks, towel rail. shower holder, wardrobe door. etc. Very noisy frig. Towels were very 'scratchy'.
Fabulous views and a very comfortable room for a very good price. The staff is excellent and very attentive. Great breakfasts, as well.
The location & the views from the hotel It was a little difficult to find
The view is amazing. The restaurant is great, and the staff were wonderful. Bed was a little uncomfortable, and there was nothing within walking distance.
outstanding view, atmosphere the staff behaviour
Views and food were great. Staff was not friendly or helpful, and the rooms were not that clean.
Location and scenery The pool water is far to cold for a resort; Do the staff not ask why there are a dozen people around a pool on a warm day and nobody is swimming?
Very reminiscent of Mamma Mia. The style is exactly what you'd expect of Santorini. The staff are very nice and helpful. I only had a dinner and breakfast so I'll reserve my comments on the food because I may not have experienced all the hotel has to offer. The room was so nice. My only complaint is not with the hotel but with some obnoxious travelers that seemed to enjoy themselves a little too loudly. The food but I didn't have much of it to know what might ve been better.
The location was good, the room was clean and adequate in size. The hotel is in 2 parts (not mentioned on web site). The part we stayed on did not have access to the 3 pools and restaurants unless we crossed a busy main road so we felt isolated. Not enough loungers for all the guests, especially annoying when they are empty but just draped in towels and the staff tell you there is nothing they can do! Also hotel has countless steps to pools and no lift!
Fabulous 2 bedroom villa perched high up on edge of cliff. Magnificent view. Private pool and terrace where breakfast is served. Great personalized service. Nothing
The rooms, views, facilities were fabulous.A lovely location and hotel perfect for honeymooners... Would highly recommend to friends and family..perfect location away from the crowds and just a short distance from Fira. No
Gorgeous views, stunning hotel.. the staff were not very friendly, food was terrible and i love greek food but there cuisine was very western without the knowledge so very disappointed with the overall service off the staff and food!
Loved the view, location Bathroom needed ventilation/exhaust fan
The view from the hotel is amazing! The location of the hotel, close to Fira but not in Fira is ideal for those seeking a peaceful vacation. The free hotel shuttle bus to Fira is also a plus. Fantastic breakfast buffet. The bed was unusually hard and very uncomfortable. The A/C needed to be replaced. The bathroom needs to be updated.
The view, location and buffet breakfast
Everything! I absolutely recommend this place to anyone. We have been travelling Europe for 2 months now and have stayed at everything from a below 1 star hostel to a five star hotel and Villa Rose beats them all! Maria goes above and beyond to make your experience the best one possible. None. If your choosing between here and somewhere else in Santorini - choose villa rose!
Maria, out host, is the best host we've had. It's just a 5 minute walk from most things in Fira.
Best place we have stayed in Europe! Maria the host was fantastic, made us feel very welcome and went above and beyond as a host. The rooms are fairly spacious, very clean and comfortable. Highly recommended, great value for money. Thank you Maria for making our stay so enjoyable.
The service from Maria & Nikolos keeps you blindfolded! They are amazing! Catching sleep for just a couple of hours a day to keep receiving the guests and bidding them a farewell from the air/sea ports as a voluntary service, they attend to every call with the same care! Mr Nikolos, one of the owners, defends, "every 10 euros earned should make a way partly back to the well being of the hotel and their guests" and adds that he enjoys it. This is apparent if you encounter the hosts yourself. The rooms are kept 'spotlessly' clean, a few edibles replenished each day and every call attended to, patiently. I would rate a 9 on 10! This is not something I didn't like - I only don't want the guests to choose this property with expectations and later get dejected due to this reason: the property isnt located on a sea-facing edge of the island. And if it did, I am afraid if I could ever afford to stay at this place! And am happy it's so reachable to many like me! It's neverthless quite centrally located yet secluded from the tourist buzz. If you arrive here at night, please wait till the next day break before you give up!
Small but quite clearn and has everything you need inside None
Our apartment was spacious and even nicer than expected. The views from our two large terraces was spectacular! Loved every moment. Thank you. The steps to the road was a little tiresome and not for the weak or disabled.
The view was amazing. Modern and clean. Friendly staff that recommends and helps with everything you might need. Hard to find.
We were greeted very warmly. Felt as if the staff were inviting us into their own home. Everything was very personal & they were so friendly. We were given a glass of peach juice to enjoy while they finished setting up our room. They did not even allow us to carry our luggage to the room; someone brought it there for us & I was very thankful for that because climbing up and down the stairs was very tiring that first day. It was very quiet and relaxing. Every room/balcony had a beautiful view of the volcano/caldera. a safe 10 minute downhill walk into Thira. But that means going back was uphill! We were graciously upgraded to the loft since it was our honeymoon. It was an incredibly wonderful experience and I'd love to return!! It was perfect, nothing to change!
The location was great-we ejoyed being tucked into the Caldera, away from the noise of the city and with awesome veiws all around.
This hotel is beautiful. The views from the rooms, swimming pool, bar area, everywhere are stunning. It's exactly what you would expect from a hotel in Santorini. It is approx. a 10 minute walk into Fira which is fine as it gives you plenty of spots for photos. The hotel will organise a taxi for you into Oia, we always got the local bus back as it drops you directly outside the hotel entrance. All in all a super place to stay. Room was great with a real double bed!
good location. You can go to Fira by a path with beautiful view. View from the hotel is also fabulous and Swimming pool is very nice. Staff extremely kind. we have no complaint.
Lovely location. Nice to be just outside the centre and away from the cruise ship crowds. Lovely rooms. Very helpful and friendly staff. A real treat! Good view of the sunset! It wasnt a problem for us but be aware you will need to be able to manage stairs. The location is worth it!
Beautiful view, service, design, cleanliness, warmwelcome, special attention to customers ( my wife birthday), good selection of music (cd's) to bring in the room, outstanding swimming pool. tranquillity, and charm. close to 200 steps to get to the street
The room was large, very modern and the views spectacular. Apart from our balcony, there were several terraces where you could view the sunset. Breakfast was very good, usually taken outside on the terrace. We felt it is situated in one of the best places in Santorini as Firostefani lies between Fira and Imerovegli, both within easy walking distance. A fantastic holiday! The only thing was we felt the shower should be fixed to the wall and the bath was quite difficult to get out of.
This is a gorgeous hotel with an amazing view, great rooms, lovely breakfast, and very helpful staff - especially Tsiala, she is a star. If we ever return to Santorini, we will definitely be staying here. Due to an unforeseeable problem with another guest we were unable to stay at Agali Houses on the first night and were put up in Cliff Side Suites instead. It was aweful, dirty and not nearly as nice as Agali Houses. We were very pleased when we moved and luckily got an upgrade to make up for it!
Thomas and Alex are great hosts - we were definitely given the feeling that they cared about us and our comfort. Housekeeping staff very meticulous. Loved the deck area overlooking the caldera. Rooms are spacious. The view is amazing. At first I was a bit daunted by the all the steps but every thing else was so positive that I quickly forgot about them.
Beautiful terrace with a breathtaking view of the caldera. Friendly staff. Delicious breakfast makes a perfect day. Wifi is a bit weak inside the room.
The view from my hotel room door was absolutely breathtaking. You could see the entire caldera, the town of Fira on the rim, and look down on the tourist ships far below. The hotel was nice and run by two fellows who were very friendly and helpful. One minor thing that bothered me initially was that the local town had removed the sign pointing the way to the hotel as part of some roadwork. However, the hotel manager said the sign would be back up the following week.
This was a great small hotel, just outside of Fira (less than 5 minute walk). Location turned out to be great because it was really easy to get in and out of, quiet, easy parking (get an ATV!), but super easy walk into Fira. It was also really easy to get to other locations around the island vs. some of the 'in-town' hotels. It also has a beautiful view of the Caldera and sunset. The staff was amazingly helpful with everything, including helping us coordinate with lost baggage and directing us to good places to get clothes in the interim. The pool was very nice to relax and staff was quick with towels and drinks. The only downside is that the shower was a little small and the Wifi was could be a little slow at times. The hotel does not have the same type of view as the hotels on the cliffs in Fira or Oia, but for the price, ease of access and other positives; it is well worth the value and very relaxing.
