“Stunning views, spectacular service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2012

A welcoming, friendly hotel with staff that will go out of their way to help. The most stunning views of the caldera - simply breath-taking. I would highly recommend this hotel for a stay on Santorini. Easy access to other parts of the island by local bus and the hotel can arrange car/moped hire.

Just gorgeous!

This isn't the first time we stayed at Kokkinos Villas. If you are looking for a great place to relax and enjoy Santorini this is the place for you...the rooms are spacious, crisp fresh linens,updated bathrooms.The staff are more than friendly and always there to help. Family owned, Antonis,his wonderful sister Chryshoula are always willing to help you out so your stay will be perfect. The hotel has a nice surprise a secluded beach just follow the trail down... no need to drive to the otherside of the island to go to the beach...and there is a wonderful resturant for a Greek Frappe.
and the views are spectacular. a Piece of Heaven for sure... find out for yourself.

Room Tip: Every room has an Agean view,,,ask for a balcony room if possible, nice and private.

I stayed in Kokkinos Villas for one week, traveling alone and looking for a nice place to relax and snorkel. It totally blew my mind and I have become a sort of spontaneous spokesperson for this place.
If you are looking for a great view, a clean hotel, runned by its owners with great hospitality and a nice mediterranean feeling COME HERE. The view is stunning, seriously, just that from your balcony will make the deal. The rooms are very clean, the bathrooms have new equipment and there is a fridge to keep your fruits and drinks.
The service is fantastic, everyone is so warm and welcoming!
The Caldera beach is just 200 mts. away from the hotel. The beach has a great restaurant, Remezzo, where you can get something to eat while enjoying your beach day.
There is a diving store at the same beach, and if you are up for snorkeling, try to locate the big rock where most fishes gather. I have seen plenty, including a tuna, many parrot fishes and 7 barracudas. Just keep in mind that it is the mediterranean and not the Caribbean, but honestly it is decent for the mediterranean standards.
10 minutes walk away from the hotel you will find the archeological excavations and the famous Red Beach.
If you want to go to the big town, Fira, for some shopping and to see the crowd don't worry, that is also simple. The buses go regularly and they are very cheap. 1.80 euro. It is only 12 km away and the view on the way there is spectacular. The buses go all over the island, so it is easy to use public transportation. If you want a bit more freedom you can rent cars or motorbikes at affordable prices.
I genuenly prefered to stay here, Fira is too crowded and with the 4 daily cruises coming into town it is a bit too much.
Go to Kokkinos Villas if you are traveling alone, you are a couple or a group of friends. Relax, romance and a great view are guaranteed!
Can't wait to go back.

This hotel has stunning views of the caldera. Excellent spot for watching the sunset.
The staff are incredibly friendly and full of great recommendations for dining and activities.The room had an incredible view and was a short walk to restaurants. The room was very clean, and had a recently remodeled bathroom with a huge shower.

Room Tip: There are a lot of stairs in Santorini, if you have difficulties with stairs, request a room that cl...

We had a stunning view, a spacious room, a private balcony, a friendly staff that let us stay an extra hour for free. The room was spotless, and it is quite close to the bus stop from Fira. We would like to stay longer. We highly recommend this hotel.

If you are looking for a boutique, beach chic hotel, don't come to Kokkinos Villas. However, if you are looking for a privately-owned hotel, lovingly run by Antonis and his family, pristinely clean bedrooms and breathtaking views, do try Kokkinos Villas. It is based on the South of the island and we managed to get around easily by bus and by hiring a quad bike, which Antonis organised for us. There are restaurants within walking distance, including a little taverna on the beach beneath the hotel, which we loved going to as the sunsets were wonderful.

Any criticisms? Yes, breakfast could have been a little more varied and bathrooms are very basic. However, we were on a laid back beach holiday, so this really didn't bother us.

Faced with returning to a stressful job and the hum drum of daily life, I really didn't want to leave, but Antonis,caring as always, gave me a bottle of local wine to make things better. What a gem!

Room Tip: As we did, pay extra to have a room with its own balcony. Not only do you have more privacy for sun...
