“Friendly staff and excellent views!”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

Even during the blackout Santorini experienced in mid-August 2013, the experience at Kyma Villas was very positive. The staff, and especially the Manager, Tasos Anthopolous, were very pleasant, very helpful, and always willing to lend a hand or answer a question any time of day. Even during the blackout, he went out of his way to provide us with as many candles or other accessories we may need. The views from the hotel were nothing short of spectacular, and the location is right in the middle of the action in Oia, but secluded enough so you do not hear the incessant foot traffic of tourists in the and restaurants markets above. This hotel is highly recommended.

We stayed 6 nights in Kima Villa. The views are stunning and will take your breath away. It's an excellent location in Oia. Nice and quiet but only a short walk to the centre of Oia. There's 60ish steps up and it's nothing at all. Your bags are carried up and down for you. We had a 3 and a half year old with us and we didn't once use our stroller whilst in Oia. Tasos the manager is excellent. He arranged a taxi pick up for us and we were brought to the edge of the village and from there a 5 min walk down the steps to Kima Villas. Tasos set up breakfast every morning upon request right on our own personal balcony with stunning views of the caldera. We were in room 4 so it wasn't very private as its right beside the pool so our neighbours right next door didn't make breakfast a very private affair but that was ok as all the visitors there were not intrusive. The pool was lovely and every day we got sun loungers. It's a nice quiet location. Perhaps not the best safety wise for small children that said we had no issues with our little one by the pool but a younger toddler would need to be watched. The rooms are clean and we got a little bed for our daughter which was perfect.Saba the cleaner was so sweet and helpful. She even washed some of my daughters clothes. The only cristisims I have are firstly with the bed. It's was the squeakiest bed I've ever sleep in. Secondly the pool infiltration system is right outside room 4 so in the mornings when Tasos would lift the iron lid it was a noise that woke our daughter every morning which meant we were up earlier then we would have liked. That's it really, that's the only fault I can find. We would definitely return just book a different room.

Room Tip: Don't book room 4.

Very pleasant stay! The position of the hotel is amazing, you can enjoy the views and silence! its perfect, it has a very nice pool, not too many occupants on the pool and you can always get a bed to lay and relax. The manager of the hotel Tasos is of great help in arraning everything you need, both in the hotel and out of it for taxis, sailing trips, visitng trips, etc. He will arrange a nice fellow to come and take your luggage to and from the rooms so no need to worry about the steps. Rooms are very clean and the best you can get for the price. Its located just at he center of pedestrian street in Oia, with buses, taxis and stores within a short walking distance. Its a great place to have a nice and quiet vacation!

Room Tip: Room above the pool

Pros: Rooms were spacious considering they are built into the cliffs. The views were amazing and we loved having breakfast (which Tassos brought promptly to our room each morning upon request) on the patio overlooking the ocean. The pool was perfect to relax an afternoon away at. It's not super large but not many villas in the whole place so we were all alone when we went. The location is awesome, super close to restaurants and the bus stop. Oia in general is my favorite to stay in compared to Fira and the smaller towns. Lastly, Tassos is awesome!!!

Cons: The shower in our was very small and drained super slowly. Not a dealbreaker as the other things far outweighed it but in case you're particular about things like this...

The island of Santorini is astonishingly beautilful. Among the villages Oia the one we recommend as base. Once you're there you already start feeling the will to come again. Kima Villa is in an excellent position, with breathtaking view of the Caldera; all the rooms (they are small apartments to tell the truth) have this panorama view, are clean and well kept. The Crew is top service, very skilled and willing to help. We absolutely recommend this place and this facility. We had a great relaxing time in Santorini.

Room Tip: They are all worth the same

Booked this venue entirely based on the reports on tripadvisor - very wise decision!
Really above our expectations. Definitely not because of the it's facilities or it's rooms, but for everything else.
Rooms are spacious enough for a couple, the kitchenette is ok, has what you need, the bathroom is compromise because of it,s size.
Location is absolutely PERFECT, 60 steps from the pedestrian road-the main road of Oia- and only 300 meters from a spacious parking in case you have a car.
The views.... the best you can expect from Santorini!!! Honestly, overwhelmed and could not expect anything more - there is nothing more to get! It's all in your plate...
The personal attention of Tassos adds the fifth star to this property! He is made for this job. First night he recommended a restaurant on our request, he called for the reservation, he called to make sure we were taken care and passed by to make sure! He is on top of everything in a professional and friendly way and makes all the defense to the stay of any of the guests of his 8 apts.
