We got to Santorini early so we booked our stay here last minute before heading onto our final hotel in Fira, and we wished we had stayed here the whole time! Hotel itself is beautiful with all the amenities of luxury boutiques, amazing caldera views. The staff was also fantastic, made us feel so pampered and relaxed, and they were super helpful with giving us tips for traveling around Santorini. Loved the intimacy of the small boutique hotel, poolside was almost never occupied and we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. Restaurant is also amazing, we had dinner in their beautiful dining room (again, had the whole room to ourselves), and their octopus left us craving it for the rest of our trip. This hotel was also way cheaper than our Fira hotel, amazing value for your money. The only reason I can think of is that they are slightly away from central Fira town, but with a car rental which is pretty necessary for getting around the island anyway, we were very happy driving the extra 10 minutes and saving $200 per night. I almost don't want to give away this gem, but the great staff deserve such a raving review! Location is 10-15 minutes drive from central Fira town and off the main walking path that connects all the hotels and restaurants, but we didn't mind because it saved us $200+! Plus it meant more privacy because no tourists could walk by your window.
Very nice staff any beautifull view Beds were to hard on my old back :o)
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
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 wiev, the breakfast, the pool area, The too long distance to the city
beautiful,sea sight yes
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 !!!!
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
Views and food were great. Staff was not friendly or helpful, and the rooms were not that clean.
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 view is amazing. The restaurant is great, and the staff were wonderful. Bed was a little uncomfortable, and there was nothing within walking distance.
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?
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!
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!
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.
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 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!
Maria, out host, is the best host we've had. It's just a 5 minute walk from most things in Fira.
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!
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.
Small but quite clearn and has everything you need inside None
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.
Staff, location and room.
Perfect combination of adventure and relaxation... very impressed and pleased.
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
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.
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
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.
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
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)
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.
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.
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.
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 staff made our trip memorable. They were all excellent.
people are very friendly
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
The staff were very good,the food was wonderfull and we thought very good value,our room was great and the location excellent.
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 was not coordinated, We had an e-mail saying the airport transfer was free and when we got there they wanted to charge us, and we had to insist to get the service as it was announced on an e-mail we received from them.
Very hospitable staff! Amazing Renata on the Reception :) Beautiful hotel, comfortable rooms, good location, 15 minutes to Athens Port, and local buses go every 15-20 min to Fira. We liked everything
We booked this hotel just a day before we were arriving. It was good deal and dx-room we got. There were swiming pool just in front of the room. very good location near the ocean. We were there in October(off season), so if it was in summer (peak season) that would be great fun. Room has everything. even the kitchen with all(dishes, cutlery, pan etc...). A shower room a bit smelled. The hotel was great except that.
People were very friendly and the place was nice The breakfast could have been better
Very personal service we received. Convience to the beach, clubs and restaurants. A/C did not work in our room.
It was so pretty and quaint, very friendly staff, nice pool, and walking distance to the famous black beach. Also, good quality for the price. The bed was really hard.
Friendliness, personalized service, free pick-up transfer from airport
is very near of the beach in a quiet area of the island. economically priced room is horrible, everything is very old, furniture, linens, towels, pillows are not comfortable.
The hotel staff were extremely nice. I was travelling on my own. They provided a free shuttle to and from the airport. Always on hand to help. I had a large sized room that was very clean with good facilities.
So clean, very pretty property, staff were funny, friendly and helpful. Location is brilliant for beach and sight seeing. I liked everything.
Excellent service provided by very friendly and highly trained staff. Great rooms and truly fantactic views!
Extremely beautiful scenery! The staffs were very friendly and kind. Nothing.
Peace and quiet. The view and location. Furniture and fixtures especially the shower and bathroom were antiquated
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.
Friendliness of the hotel staff, and cleaness. Nice breakfast
5 minutes far from centre of Fira,nice decoration!staff was very friendly and helpfull!
everything is perfect it is a little far from the bus station, but it is not far from the fira city center
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
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.
lovely place to stay Not easy to find the villas in the frist time
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.
The accommodation was very nice and exactly like the photos on the internet. Great location too. Plumbing in the hotel was not very good, in particular the drainage system.
Beach is close to hotel Hotel with 5 stars? Xa xa ! Good joke! 3 maby.
Friendliness of the staff
We got a free room upgrade for our honeymoon. The private jaguzzi outside room need to be pressed continuously, not good to use. Room is big and space but price is expensive. Breakfirst is ok.
everything about this hotel was first class no
The Tamarix is a little piece of heaven. The staff is friendly and always ready to help and at the same time can be like a freind that you have known. The honeymoon suite was ideal for romance and the room was very comfortable. Unfortunately, the wonderful tub\shower\jacuzzi floaded the bathroom everytime we showered. We just adjusted by not having anything on the floor as the water drained away quickly, all in all it was a minor problem that if they fixed would make this hotel perfect perfect perfect.
While the rooms, facilities and general atmosphere at Tamarix del Mar were all quite lovely, the real stand out was the service. Georgia, Demi, George and their staff all went out of their way to make our stay as amazing as possible. My wife and I stayed here on the second leg of our Santorini trip and had just come from staying a few nights at the Absolute Bliss Hotel in Imerovigli (on the other side of the island). Unbeknownst to us, both hotels had the same owner, and we could really tell from the quality of the service. As we mentioned in our review of Absolute Bliss, the service there was utterly outstanding, and the service at Tamarix lived up to the high expectations created by its sister hotel. So if you're staying in Kamari, we would definitely recommend staying at Tamarix -- the service alone makes it well worth it.
Excellent hotel, pleasent staff, good position, very good breakfast Old tv
Friendly staff and quite, relaxing hotel. Very comfortable rooms and pool. Good value for money.
Friendly staff to whom no request was a problem. Relaxing atmosphere. Comfortable, stylish suite. Well kept and beautiful pool area with comfortable loungers. Good and varied breakfast buffet. Reasonably priced bar snacks. Lovely place to stay. Not like is too strong but the description 'fully equipped kitchenette' is typically Greek and not very accurate i.e. shortage of cutlery and no cooking or bread knife. Not a problem as we didn't cook!
Both the hotel and staff were first class the shower in the bathroom did not work property and water leaked on the floor
Only the location Staff Cleanliness Wi-Fi Shower Service Swimming pool
The room was huge and clean. The bed was very comfy! Bathroom was very nice! Breakfast was delicious! Overall a great value fior Santorini Island. The view was advertised as better view than it was. But the hotels with the best views are incredibly more expensive so we were happy with the overall nice staff, beautiful room and delicious breakfast.
Close walk to Fira Lovely place Loved our room They need to buy more hair dryers :)
