Hotel Atlantida Villas
Ranked #55 of 56 Hotels in Oia
Reviewed 19 October 2009

The manager at the hotel was very nice. He took us to our rooms upon arrival and gat us a 10 min rundown about the location and the island of santorini.

One thing to make sure of is to book directly with the hotel rather than going through an online travel agency. We made that mistake and booked through www.santorini-hotels.net and we were very dissapointed. A travel company by the name of travel zone based out of Athens was who the booking was made through. They screwed up our reservation so when we went to the hotel they did not have the room we requested available and the manager states he had told that to the travel zone people on 3 occasions and asked them if they had okayed it with us. They told him that they had but we never heard that. Otherwise we would not have paid extra for a 5 person apartment - the room they initially gave was a single bedroom for 5 adults - OMG! Anyhow, after making a fuss, the manager at the hotel gave us another room so we had 2 rooms among the 5 of us. We later had to fight it out with a lady at travel zone. It was not a good phone conversation.

All in all - book directly with the hotel - the prices are similar so it makes no sense to go through someone else. If I had known this, I would not have gone through that website.

Again the views were amazing, there was daily maid service, nice breakfast. Don't expect luxury, though. It is a family owned place with very basic furniture, bedding, etc..The weather was sort of chilly so we did not get into the pool. The main downtown area of oia is a short 10 min walk.

You already know the views are stunning, and that's largely why you pay more near Oia. It seems the place has changed from being 'Volcanos View' to 'Atlantida Villas', so maybe some improvements have been made to address issues in earlier reviews. We arrived at 05:30 in the moning, off the night-ferry. We waited by the pool until 07:00, at which point the owner happily gave us tea and coffee, even though breakfast wasn't until 08:30. We were also provided breakfast, without having checked in, which was most welcome. Staff very helpful. The town is a few minutes walk (take the cliff top path, NOT the main road!), but that's part of the reason for staying here - getting away from the busy town.

Pool is OK, breakfast OK. Rooms clean and simply furnished, but adequate. We ate out a couple of times, and brought food back to our room to enjoy on our balcony with wine and the sunset on one night. Highly recommend the boat tour of volcano / hot springs / Thirissa - book ahead as it gets busy!!

PS - don't understand complaints about the 'small tv' - surely you're not here to watch tv??

We have very mixed feelings about Atlantida Villas - on the one hand, we thought it was tired and desperately in need of refurbishment and on the other we loved the location and the stunning views! You get perfect uninterrupted views out over the caldera from your balcony or the main swimming pool area. The apartments themselves are okay but certainly not the 4* they advertise themselves to be - 3* at absolute best. The bed was possibly the most uncomfortable I have experienced in a long time which lead to two nights very poor sleep despite the quantity of vino sunk before getting into it! Having said this, you get what you pay for and this was the cheapest caldera view product I could find in the Oia area, so we should not really have cause to complain. I just think it is a great shame to have such great potential - they could refurbish quite simply and charge double the rate, as many of their competitors clearly do! One tip - walk down the cliff path into Oia, it is far quicker than walking the road.

I stayed here with my fiance and my parents in August 2009 for 4 nights. We had a fabulous time and wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel to anyone. Rooms were spotless when we arrived and they were cleaned daily. I booked directly with the hotel who were lovely to deal with and were very friendly. There is a bar which is very quite, however as we wanted a peaceful, relaxing break this hotel was perfect. The hotel is about a 5 minute walk to the center of Oia however this makes the hotel very private. On the walk into Oia there are plenty of hotels and villas (many swimming pools are located on the main footpath into the village so you have to sunbathe with an audience!!) but none have the level of privacy of Atlantida. Location wise this hotel is excellent, the views are amazing, staff are lovely, rooms clean and comfortable. Pool is small but I have yet to see a large pool in Oia! The view from the pool is spectacular. I booked this hotel on the recommendation of other travels who wrote reviews so I hope if your reading this review you have found it helpful..

The wife and I stayed 3 nights @ Atlantida Villas. The highlights of the hotel are the location, view, and service. -the location of the town is away from the big tourist areas on the island, except for around the time of sunset. There are two restaurants across the street and a vineyard down the hill and the town is 10 minutes away. Walking here is a bit dangerous especially at night -There doesn't seem to be a bad view anywhere on this island in fact so not surprising the Villas being located on the cliff you should get a good view. -And with the service we were able to get great advice on where to go, what we can do, and also were able to arrange for rentals to come to the hotel.
THE CONS of the hotel were the pool, our room, and the lack of a bar. The pool needs a couple good cleanings. It's no where close to what the picture on the website looks like and its tiny. This was very disappointing upon arrival. Our room was a suite. The walls were thin so we awoke everynight to guests coming home late or even annoyed with hearing conversations directly through the walls. This place definately need's some sounding proofing work. And finally the inconvenience of no food/drink available during the day, except mornings. It would have been great to get a sandwich or coffee when we first arrived or anytime during the afternoon. On the flip side it was good that the pool was poor and their was no food available because it forced us to explore other areas.

If you want to find a hotel to relax, do not pick this one unless you plan to go to the beach to relax and unwind.

Santorini is amazing, so when we come back we will NOT be returning to this hotel. We love the area of Oia so we would prefer to find a hotel closer to town because their are plenty more high quality hotels around. Just stroll into town one night and you'll see all the clean pools lighted up at night.

We spent 7 wonderful nights at this hotel. Our experience could not have been any better. It starts with the extremely helpful owner and his staff. They make sure that you have a great stay 24/7. The hotel itself is located on top of a cliff with fantastic views. It is a short walk into the main village (about 500m). The pool is super and reading on one of the chairs is magical. The rooms are basic but VERY clean. We were very happy with our setup. The A/C worked like a charm.
The service provided by the hotel is amazing. My wife got sick and the owner personally made sure that she got a doctor and the according medication. He took care of everything and even insisted on taking us to the pharmacy to get the right medications. We travel a lot and this is truly unique. It makes a world of difference.
We highly recommend this place for various reasons: The owner & his staff, super-clean rooms, fantastic views, great location.
Last but not least, there is a great Taverna right across the street. Great food & great atmosphere.

We just returned from the Atlantida and we have to say the staff is top notch and Georgos Syrigos is the best! We were afraid that when our ride arranged by the hotel, because it was less expensive than taking an airport taxi, wasn't there to greet us that it was going to be terrible, but when our ride did come Georgos picked up the bill. He felt terrible and made things right with us right away. A day into our trip my husband got very ill and needed to be taken to the hospital Georgos set us up with a ride to the hospital immediately. What does this all have to do with the Villas everything, the service is tops!
The views are amazing and despite what another tipster says the pool was just fine and more than adaquate. The rooms do get dusty but that is not from lack of cleaning it is because it is dry and hot and its on an old volcano!
The only and I mean only complaint that I have was, the bed was hard. I mean really hard.
Must go to the taverna restaurant across the street it is fun and very welcoming!
If you want to be in the center of town this place isn't for you.
Breakfast is served every morning from 8-11 and it is included in room, this is a great value.
