We were a family group of four adults and the first thing that sprang to mind the moment we arrived at the Villa Renos and stepped out of our hotel room onto our balcony was, "this is surely heaven on earth!". The view over the blue Aegean from that hotel balcony was utterly breathtaking and I felt as if I'd surely 'gone to heaven'. Before we booked through our travel agent, we had read such positive reviews of the Villa Renos on tripadvisor that we decided that was where we also wanted to spend our four nights in Santorini, as part of our Greek cycladic island sojourn (including Mykonos and Paros). We were not disappointed! Petros, Zina and Vasillis Mateka were the most wonderful hosts of this beautiful family-run hotel. They made us feel so welcomed and part of their family, so much so that we already miss them very much now that we have returned home.
My husband and I stayed in Room 4 and my brother and sister-in-law stayed right next door to us in Room 5 so we shared the large balcony which included a spa pool for our own use. The other 3 rooms on the other upper level above us had their own hot-tubs each and there was a private little honeymoon suite on the level beneath us which again had their own private spa pool. What a treat for us all! We would come back to Villa Renos after a hot day out sightseeing or shopping and retreat to our little havens and there we would stay until the spectacular sunset ended another glorious day. As for the start of each day for us, the delicious home-cooked breakfasts that awaited us each morning on the hotel's dining/breakfast room balcony was a gourmet's joy to behold (I am an avid cook). Delicious home-made Greek yoghurt topped with crushed pistachio nuts, fresh orange juice from oranges locally grown, fresh fruit and the most delicious spinach and cheese phyllo pastry rolls or Santorini-style tomato meatball fritters, delicious cold cut meats and beautiful cheeses
accompanied by hot toast. To die for! We loved this hotel so much we are in fact planning to return there same time next year in 2008. Would recommend this beautiful hotel to anyone who would like to experience the warmth and hospitality of a beautiful family and a vista so divine that you would think you had in fact gone to heaven.....
