The owners at Villa Manos were incredible. We couldn't leave the island due to ferry cancellations, they went above and beyond our expectations to make us feel comfortable. They did their best to get us rescheduled for a way off the island.
It was a really clean hotel,not far away from the city center, Fira!! Nice staff also! The rooms are quiete spacious and clean...!! Perhaps if we are coming back in Santorini we will choose the same hotel again!! Also free transportation from Athinios port was excellent!!
Personnel très accueillant et serviable Manque de certains détails: savon dans salle de bain, literie laisse à désirer...
Pool was great. Room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was good value. Shower was not good. Too small and curtain useless.
Is was a very friendly & warm environment. They made you feel as though you were part of their family. Felt very welcome.
Owner of the hotel make your stay memorable.You feel like staying in your relatives home.They do take care of everything. Bed was not that much comfortable.
After 2 weeks of travel, it was a godsend to stay at such a hospitable and freindly place. The owners are the best. Absolutely fabulous. They make you feel right at home and assist you with whatever needs you may have. The location is perfect,on the edge of town so it is quite enough for some rest yet a 2 minute scooter ride into the center of town. The owners truely have good character. I highly recommend the hotel. Excellent value for the money. The rooms were very comfortable and the atmoshere was authentic. Thanks Poppie and family! Everything was great.
Poppy and her family are fabulous and made us feel incredibly welcome - small touches like a glass of 'welcome' wine are very special and show that they are very considerate of their guests. The breakfast is delicious and very reasonably priced, the pool is lovely and the hotel location is great - it's outside the city but right by a bus station heading into the city and also to the beach. We never had a problem getting a taxi if we couldn't be bothered waiting for the bus (Poppy was gracious enough to call one whenever we required it). I really enjoyed my time at Villa Manos. The rooms could do with a little sprucing up; ours didn't have much space around the beds, but this in no way detracted from our great stay.
This hotel was great. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We set up our tour through them, and they helped us rent an ATV. My room was great, and the view was spectacular. If the land around the area was developed, I'm sure my view would've been blocked. It's a quiet place, which I loved. And although it's far, it's walking distance to Fira. The pool was beautiful. Coming from a crowded, dirty NYC, this was a breath of fresh air. I loved every minute of it and didn't want to leave.
Service is good!~
The people who have the pension are very friendly and they always want to help you. The bathroom.
nice friendly atmosphere
Very friendly owners, quiet location not far from Fira center (15 minutes walk), very clean and nice place The bathroom was too small
La seconda camera che ci hanno assegnato era spaziosa e ben aereata. Bella e grande la piscina. Simpatica la colazione servita o in camera sulla terrazza o a bordo piscina, disponibilità della famiglia proprietaria e trasporto gratuito da e per l'aereoporto molto apprezzato! E' una pensione che avrebbe delle ottime potenzialità, purtroppo quello che ci ha un pò deluso è stata la mancanza di cura della struttura in generale: sdraie attorno alla piscina tutte rotte e arrugginite, divani ricoperti di lenzuoli vecchi e sporchi, asciugamani nelle camere puliti e cambiati ogni giorno ma vecchi e sdruciti. Potrebbe diventare un posto molto bello con una rinfrescata e ripulita generale.
staffs is nice, it feel great to include the pick up service
clean rooms,the swimming pool was ok and 5 min away from Fira (with car).Friendly environment,pleasant stay the decoration of the room was no good-old fashion- the bathroom very small and old
Nice and clean place, close to the town with good price.
I stayed with my family at the pension for 2 nights, and booked 2 double rooms.Overall I had a good time and can recommend it for budget travellers. Positive: 1) Shuttle service to/from airport/harbour - this is a big plus in terms of price and convenience. 2) Price 3) Location -but note I rented a car and the town is a central location from which to get around. May not apply to those wanting to be near beach, etc. Negative: Breakfast - sure it's just 4 Euros, but you can do better with a trip to the supermarket.
The family that run the rooms are extremely helpful. They picked us up from the port and took us to the port when we were leaving. They also took us to the main town as an act of goodwill. We felt very cared for by the family, they were willing to help us with queries about the area and wanted to make sure that we were comfortable staying there. The swimming pool is also excellent anfd overlooks the sea and mountains. The room was very basic although it did have air conditioning which was good.
Very nice family, nice envirenment and full facilities. You can even use the kitchen! Hot water sometimes is gone. It might not be a problem in summer. but in winter...
It is a family run hotel and the family were very welcoming, informative and generous to all the guests staying whilst I was there.
The staff were very friendly and accommodating, they picked me up from the Airport and took me to the port the next day for free. They couldnt do enough to help. Nothing during my stay there.
The staff (a whole family) was very friendly and tried to helps their guests in every aspect. We arrived by ferry-boat and drove to the hotel with our own car; only when we arrived at the hotel we learned that Babis had been waiting for as at the port all morning.
The hotel is managed by a very friendly family. The service is of a 5 star hotel, they look after you all the time. A bus stop is just two minutes walking from the hotel. Good breakfast and free shuttle to the port and Fira. Nothing.
The staff were very helpful. Room very clean and comfortable for the price. It was on a busy road.
beautiful,sea sight yes
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.
View from the hotel is fantastic Far from Fira, about 20 minutes walk! Easily solved when rented a bike.
Very nice staff any beautifull view Beds were to hard on my old back :o)
the wiev, the breakfast, the pool area, The too long distance to the city
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 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
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.
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
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 !!!!
the staff - artemis and his wife anna - were absolutely awesome!! they always were eager to help and make you feel comfortable. the facilities were great...beautiful pool area and view of the ocean. very close to the airport. a great place to stay! they are always willing to drive you to the city too.
Excellent quality of service. Highly recommended
hotel staff and locattion
The owners of the hotel are lovely and kind people. They offered us free pick up from and to the airport. They made us feel like home from the first moment.The hotel is located by the beach and only 5 minutes drive from the main town of Santorini. The view from our balcony was breathtaking. We will definitely go back if we visit Santorini again.
The owners are very friendly and helpful.
Artemis and Ana's personal involvement with all guests. Clean rooms, free shuttle to port and Thira, assistance with car hire, information about Santorini. Lovely pool area, walking distance to beach.
personal service from people that love their hotel and island. wonderful no everthing was explained, we knew the location was out of town and they offered to take us into town free of charge whenever we wished
Artemis is a very nice place. The family who runs this hotel is very warm and they will do everything to make your stay a happy one. The reception is always occupied and as you walk by Anna offers you free coffee and thee in the morning and wine in the evenings. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The swimmingpool is very nice and the reception has a computer with internet connection which you can use for free. There is also a minivan which they use to offer free transfers for their guests to and from the (air)port. As it is situated close to the airport you hear the planes taking off, but as there are not too many flights on santorini it didn't disturb us at all.
The hotel is simply perfect. A real paradise. Their owner (Anna and Artemis) are very pleasant and helpful people. Every time I go to Santorini I will get hosted there.
the hotel is beautifull and the staff(artemis & anna) were so kind no
outstanding view, atmosphere the staff behaviour
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
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!
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.
Views and food were great. Staff was not friendly or helpful, and the rooms were not that clean.
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.
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 grounds were stunning and the view is the best in Fira. The staff is extremely hospitable and cater to each and every need. If I ever travel back to Santorini I will definitely be staying at Volcano View again.
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.
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?
Loved the view, location Bathroom needed ventilation/exhaust fan
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!
Maria, out host, is the best host we've had. It's just a 5 minute walk from most things in Fira.
Small but quite clearn and has everything you need inside None
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.
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!
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!
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.
Anna and her son Andreas are very helpful. The room was amazingly clean and we had nice view from our room. The bar has facilities to make your coffee and tea (provided) and cold mineral water (because tab water cannot be drunk in Santorini). Just 10 minutes walking from Fira and easy to find parking. The terrace also very good.
very good value for money. spacious room with high ceiling and comes with a balcony.
it was the best hotel of my trip!The staff was the most friendly!15 minutes walk from the town!100% clean ! relaxing! High Recommend it !!
Our stay at Anna Pension was just delightful! The service and the vibe was like a Bed & Breakfast! The service was great, the room was just the right size & clean, and we have an ample size balcony overlooking the pool. This is a great place to stay if you want to save some money - excellent value!! There are a good amount of local restaurants and 4-5 bike rental places (which you will need) all less than a 5 minute walk up the street! Only bad thing, which isn't that bad is... Fira is about a 15-20 walk but if you rent a bike its only a 5 minute drive! But it is worth it to stay outside of Fira because you will save so much money!!
We enjoyed it very much and we appreciated that it was away from the noise. Missed a shower curtain
The view was amazing (in our room, at the pool, everywhere!) we spent 2 full days at the pool, it was so relaxing and the pool bar girl made the best mojitos! It was quiet at our hotel, meanwhile if you wanted anything, it is a few minute walk to Fira town where you can get food, ice cream,coffee, etc. we wished there was wifi in the rooms
This hotel was very clean and comfortable, with a beautiful view of the caldera. Staff was very accomodating, with an early check in. Pool area was clean and very nice. Overall very happy with this hotel.
Great location! So close to everything..Our view was fantastic! and Paul was very friendly and helpful. It was great to have a pool right there that we could relax beside. Had the most amazing time and would not hesitate to stay there again.
Staff, location and room.
This is a beautiful cliff side hotel. Once you actually get there, it's amazing. Trying to navigate there is literally impossible, although google maps will insist you can drive onto the pedestrian walk way to get there. We drove around for quite some time, then called the hotel. They were nice, but basically just told us to park and ask someone (I didn't appreciate that part of it!). It is a relatively short walk once you park (pretty much anywhere in Fira is a short walk)
Spectacular views, and most of the staff is extremely friendly and goes above and beyond. I think our stay would have been A+ if we didn't experience a hiccup part of the way through, which wasn't handled ideally. Not the end of the world but did put a damper on the idealic experience. If you're a super easy going traveler and nothing will phase you, this will be a fairy tale stay for you. If you like things a certain way or have a high bar, perhaps consider a different spot. But don't worry too much, in Santorini you can't really go wrong! :D
Perfect combination of adventure and relaxation... very impressed and pleased.
We enjoyed the location , and the pool great views also . unfortunatley the air conditioning did not work well at all and the bathrooms were very out of date , the linen was old and needed an update , the breakfast was very very basic
The staff made our trip memorable. They were all excellent.
The facility is beautiful Service was good. Hotel was quiet, pool was like out of a magazine. We would come back to this hotel. Would be nice to be able to have coffee earlier than 7:00a.m.
The food was excellent, it was on par with a five star hotel. The swimming pool is beautiful, very big and clean. I would not rate this hotel five star. The rooms are basic and the staff aren't very helpful (even though they do try to be but don't know how to be). Seems to me that it is considered to be a hotel only for tourists so they tend to get away with a lot.
Almost everyone on the Hotel staff is very friendly and kind. The breakfast is good and the pool is excelent. The Hotel location, although not on the beach, is very central, and that allows one to reach every beach of the island in about 20 minutes by car. The breakfast is good, but could be improved considering the price one pays to stay there.
Everything was great. The room had an excelent view and we it felted like home.The pool was great and the staff was very nice.The organization and the display of the hotel was excelent, perfect for a nice and relaxation vacacions. Needs more variety on breakfast
everything, esp wi fi in the room. nice. helpful, friendly staff, short walk from town center and bust stop for tours. it was good overall. the fact that there are no screens and if you dare open windows or doors for fresh air you will have a room full of flies because of the intense heat. but the air conditioner works just fine.
The staff were very good,the food was wonderfull and we thought very good value,our room was great and the location excellent.
Champagne buffet breakfast, the free transfers from port and airport, the hotel swimming pool and proximity to the town of Fira (walking distance). The rooms are not well maintained for a 5* hotel and half of the rooms with 'volcano views' are actually facing the main road. Those rooms facing the other side may be better but they have a narrow staircase, without a bannister, leading up to the gallery/bedroom which was not practical. The biggest disappontment was the number of iunexplainable flys in the rooms. We changed rooms 3 times but just could not get away from them - not something one would expect to find in this level of hotel.
people are very friendly
Peace and quiet. The view and location. Furniture and fixtures especially the shower and bathroom were antiquated
Extremely beautiful scenery! The staffs were very friendly and kind. Nothing.
Excellent service provided by very friendly and highly trained staff. Great rooms and truly fantactic views!
