My husband and I stayed at the Armeni Village for 5 nights in the beginning of June for our 2nd anniversary getaway vacation and were in complete awe of this property!!! After reading some amazing things that other travelers had to say about this hotel, we decided to take a chance and book our stay here.
From start to finish, we were so incredibly happy with the Armeni Village!! We booked our transfers with the hotel and had them pick us up at the port. The hotel arranged for a transfer service to meet us there, along with a few other couples that were staying here and at the neighboring property. Upon arriving in the main town square in Oia, the Armeni's bell hop was waiting to carry our bags over to the property. Definitely a smart choice to book their transfer service because we were originally going to take a taxi. If we had done that, we would've had to carry our bags down a hefty stairway to the reception office. After checking in, the bell hop carried our bags again (and they were not light bags) all the way down to our room.
Wow!! What a room it was!!! A little small, but so incredibly cute and beautifully decorated. And the view---completely breathtaking!! We had a private balcony overlooking the caldera(Room 10)!! The room had a well-stocked mini bar in the small refrigerator that they replenished daily. I knew we had picked the perfect hotel when we lounged out on our room's balcony and saw countless tourists above us, on the walkway, taking pictures of our hotel and it's view.
A bountiful breakfast was served to us, on our balcony, every morning by the tireless bellhops! It was always such a wonderful start to our busy days!! George, in reception, gave us so many lovely ideas about where to go and what to see during our stay. Along with excellent restaurant suggestions!!
The Armeni also arranged for us to rent a scooter for our entire time on the island. FYI, you must have a motorcycle license in order to rent a scooter on Santorini, otherwise they will only allow you to rent an ATV. The rental company met us at the hotel and walked us over to their office, a 2 minute walk, and had us on our way in no time at all!!
Even though the Armeni doesn't have a restaurant on site, it was still so perfect because there was a little market 2 buildings away, where we were able to pick up a few snacks if we felt like lounging around on our balcony. Not to mention, the hotel is in the middle of town, so countless restaurants, bars and shops are within walking distance.
FYI ladies....the Armeni has an amazing high powered real hairdryer in every room!! I used to travel for a living and always had to carry mine with me (along with a converter) because hotel hairdryers are known for being cheap and powerless, but not the Armeni's (a nice 2000W Bellissima).
Everything about this hotel screams charm and beauty!!! Thank you so much, George, for you and your staff's lovely hospitality and picturesque stay!! We definitely plan on returning!!
