Reviewed 17 March 2011

they made a mistake with the room reservationn and they put us in an underground room where we found a mouse...they didn'd seem to care much,the next day they transfered us at a room where the bathroom door was broken and the hairdryer overheated and switched off alla the time.they made us pay the sum without considering the mouse visit!and that they did a mess with our reservation..

I am visiting the hotel Anemomilos since 1996 and every year something is getting better. Spyros Kokkalis and all his family carfe about every guest and the rooms are nice, clean and have a nice view to the sea (not into the caldera, but it is only 30 m away). Also the restaurant Anemomilos is very good and recommendable. Everyday the cook fresh meals. I use the hotels for my trekking tours since 1997.

Many greetings

I thought the hotel provided transfers to the port and back, but this was not the case. By the time we found this out the bus had left the port. Lucky for us a man who drove for Artemis Village drove us to Fira to catch the bus to Oia. This was a bad start to our visit, but thankfully things went up hill from there. The hotel was beautiful. The common areas were large and comfortable. I think it would be the perfect spot for a wedding. Our room had 2 twin beds and faced the sea on the other side of the Caldera and the pool. We spent some time on our balcony enjoying the view. The pool area an unexpected surprise (although I think they had stopped maintaining it because it was past the season when most people would swim). The room was cleaned daily. The restaurant served good home made Greek food. The staff was friendly and helpful. Last but not least the price was right. We would return.

We stayed at Anemomilos Apartment # 2 from 28 Sept-4 Oct 2010 and would definitely recommend it. To stay only a few minutes walk outside of Oia but for such a reasonable price was brilliant. The Caldera is obviously beautiful but you see it every day as you are walking around so not having a direct view from our room really didnt bother us. Room 2 looked over the pool and a panoramic view to the sea on the non-caldera side, which was fab. Just a note but lots of hotels on the Caldera side (where space is at a premium) have small pools with only space for a few sunbeds so the large pool and plenty of space around/sunbeds at Anemomilos is a real bonus.

The rooms are fairly small but adequate & clean and we werent disappointed at all, the air-con worked well too. The beds and pillows are pretty hard for my taste but we still slept well. The staff at Anemomilos are helpful and friendly. Spiros the owner kindly let us stay in our room as long as we needed on the day of departure without charging us as our flight wasnt until 11pm.

If you are on a budget as we were then you need to be a bit clever in Oia as things are EXPENSIVE, there are plenty of restaurants to choose from but overall we were not that impressed with most of the restaurants we ate at, or the quality of food. We generally chose the mid-range restaurants where main courses were approx. 10 Euros. The portions are small. I think perhaps we were unlucky, but the restaurants we ate at on the Caldera side with a fantastic view did help make up for the mediocre food served.

The best & most reasonably priced food food we had was actually at Anemomilos' own restaurant, well worth a visit. The baked feta and tomato starter is delicious! portions are definitely more generous than a lot of places, and a carafe of (nice) red wine was only 9 Euros whereas some places in Oia 6 Euros a glass! Eat there early in your stay and you will end up going back again and again!

FYI - Avoid the sunset bar at the top near the old fort, we ordered a sharing meze platter for 30 Euros expecting it to be spectacular and lots of food, but it was one small dinner plate of meze between us, quite nice but for 30 Euros?? What planet are they on? Sunset view=free license to charge whatever they like.

To keep within our budget we bought bread from one of the bakeries in Oia and supplies from the shop across the road from Anemomilos to make sandwiches for lunch, this worked out really well and the fridge in our room meant we could keep cheese etc. Also, dont miss the amazing cake shop in Oia (on the main walkway) it is perfect for a great value pudding, they do take away so you can find a nice caldera side spot to perch on & enjoy.. yum yum,

We absolutely loved Oia, a really breathtakingly beautiful place, you cant help but be blown away every morning seeing that view! The sunsets were awesome, we went down to see it every day, well worth it - avoid the overpriced bars and get a beer from the shop for 1.3 Euros vs. 6 + in the bars.

Although it was an expensive place to stay Oia is definitely the best resort on the island, i wouldnt want to stay anywhere else - Fira was nowhere near as nice as Oia - much bigger and more commercial.

Anemomilos was perfect for us: friendly staff, great location, gorgeous food, lovely pool, fab weather, aaahhh can we go back please?? :-)

My friends and I stayed in an apartment recommended by Spiros since we there was no avaialable room that could fit the 5 of us in the main hotel. Turned out to be really nice and we had a terraza that had a great caldera view we enjoyed very much while drinking our coffee in the morning. Martha-Spiros mother- was very attentive and nice. We loved our dinners at their family restaurant with freshly prepared dishes. The bus stop was right in front of our apt if we wished to go to Fira and the main drag of Oia is just a walk away. There is a great walkway with shoppes and restaurants from our place to the main drag where you watch the amazing sunsets it is famous for. We will stay here again and would recommend it to friends.

We stayed in room 13!! twin with balcony & sea view. The overall initial impression was of an outdated, tired hotel and room. The bathroom door didn't close. The shower didn't work properly. There was dirt in the shower tray. One of the bathroom lights didn't work. The TV was almost on the ceiling so could only be viewed lying down. The plaster on the walls was very rough in places especially around light fittings. The floors made my feet dirty. The beds were hard and lumpy. After the first night my partner asked for a new pillow as his was congealed and lumpy. The lady gave us a dirty old stained pillow in replacement. We were horrified and asked for another one. The next was as bad as the first. After that we didn't want to sleep in the beds. I caught a glimpse of a mop head that they were using to clean floors. It was so dirty. It was hot when we were there and the sheets were not changed at all. You couldn't sit on the balcony and enjoy the views because when you sat down the concrete wall came to almost the top of your head. The breakfast was brought to our table, no choice, very dull. The saving grace was that the hair dryer worked and the swimming pool was nice, would have been nicer if they had cleaned the yellow stain from the tiles inside the water. The hotel was in a convenient location for sightseeing in Oia. I have travelled in Greece for many years and have lived there for 5 years but this was the only place I couldn't wait to check out of.

This place undersells itself. From memory their website does not sell the view much as it is on the wrong side of the road for high price 'caldera views' but from our balcony / roof garden (we had an apartment) we had a stunning view of the caldera.

There are no high buildings opposte (although that may be different from the rooms rather than apartments?) so the view is uninterrupted.

We ALSO had, from the same point, a view of the other coast of the island. Something that people would pay for on other islands, but just because it is not 'caldera' on Santorini it is undervalued. Being exposed to both coasts we had a wonderful breeze on the terrace too.

Our children (5 and 7) could cope with the very steep stairs to their mezzanine bedroom, and the dangerous road outside (not hugely busy, but narrow and with typical scooter riders etc). I would not recommend it to others with younger or more accident prone kids though!

The pool was good, although it would benefit from some more sunbeds.

The restaurant was good too, and we wish we had had an evening meal here after we had a lovely light lunch on our last day.

The room had loads of towels and was clean. The only other whinge being tiny kitchenette - depends how much you intend using it - may not be a problem, and poorly stocked with utensils.

Would return here if we were to plan a return to beautiful Oia.
