Location will often take you to a hotel, but hospitality, exceptional service and cleanliness will keep bringing you back. We have just completed our fifth trip to Santorini and have stayed at the Villa Ilias each time. The hotel is well located with exceptional views of the caldera and just a 10 minute walk to Fira. Each night we enjoyed...

We were in santorini for a wedding and was recommended to stay at Villa Ilias. We were there for 4 nights and stayed in the traditional room which was about 100m from the main reception area. From the time we arrived, we were greeted with warm welcomes and hellos from the owners George and Pauline who just made us feel...

My two friends and I stayed at Villa Ilias this September. It could not have been better. The view, the breakfast, the warm hospitality given by Pauline and George.. And the rest of the staff, the cleanliness of the rooms.. It was just what we wanted. We loved being a little away from Fira Center.. Altho we were still close...

Mr. George and family were very nice. Enjoyed stay and sunset view. Great spread of breakfast. We stayed in the room by the pool. Walk to Fira was a good experience. We also went to Oia for sunset. Hired car for a day to visit different beaches.

Our favorite accommodation of our holiday on the Greek islands! Very friendly staff, delicious healthy breakfast every morning, stunning view of the caldera and sunset. Firostefani is a great location too -- just far enough from the tourist traps of Fira, but close to the activity of it all and easy to get to Oia and Fira.

We stayed at this resort for a week (Aug 18-25/12) to explore the island of Santorini. Upon our arrival from the main road there was really nothing that highlighted the special qualities that this Villa had to offer. It was only after the friendly and informative reception from Pauline who took us to our room that we realized we booked...
