“Felt like a second honeymoon”
Reviewed 11 August 2011

We stayed in Santorini 22 years ago on our honeymoon and always wanted to return as we loved it. We like to stay at Bed & Breakfasts because we like the personal touch and this was almost the same despite being a "Hotel". We stayed a week and could easily have stayed another week. The room (5) was lovely and comfortable and the air conditioning (which we can't sleep without if the weather is hot) was quiet and efficient. The bathroom had a shower over a bath rather than a straight shower so would be difficult for some as would be the stairs (an inevitable part of Fira accommodation if you want a view). The family were all helpful and friendly and the reviews raving about the food are all spot-on. Vassilis' recommendations for restaurants and the sunset semi-private cruise, were greatly appreciated and enjoyed. Also, the family arranged a hire car for us and we felt at ease giving cash to Petros to pass on to the hire car company. The views from our balcony were fantastic and the location is perfect for access to the town. Basically, we loved it and would happily return again & again.

Great hosts, great views, amazing home cooked traditional Greek breakfasts, great facilities and very comfortable rooms. We loved every moment of our stay and we would go back there any time and for a longer time if we had the opportunity. The hosts were so friendly and happy to try to solve any questions/requests we had. There are some steps/stairs to and from rooms.
All other guests we spoke to loved the place and wished they were staying longer.

Room Tip: All rooms have a great view, some have more steps than others.

I have been many times at Santorini but the last one at Villa Renos was the best ever .
The hotel is at the best point of Fira .
Great view to the Caldera, the volcano and the best point to relax and see the famous sunset of Santorini.
The location is close enough to the centre of Fira , you can go everywhere by foot , shops ,restaurants , cafe-bars and banks are really close .
The room was big enough , spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated and as i said with spectacular view to the caldera by the private balcony and the jacuzzi .
The Hotel owners Vasilis , Petros and Zina made us feel like we knew them many years before , excellent hospitallity .
What to say about the homemade breakfast ......just excellent and different for every day . Maybe it's one of the best i ever had .
Would I recommend Villa Renos to a friend?
Absolutely ..... i could say that if you go at Santorini island you must stay at Villa Renos Hotel .

Maybe somewhere in the world there's a more impressive view from a hotel room and balcony than the one you'll experience at Villa Renos on Santorini. We just don't know where you'll find it. (Our room also had an outside spa.) The spectacular and much photographed sunsets are a bonus to the simply stunning panorama on show day and night. Family owned and operated, Villa Renos is a small, personal hotel guaranteed to make your stay on Santorini even more memorable. We stayed four nights. Should have stayed longer. Oh, and the home-made Greek breakfast utilising produce from the family farm? Just splendid.

My husband and I t We stayed only four days, in a "standard" apartment and it was perfect.
The room was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. I am a light sleeper and I didn't hear a thing. All the staff did an absolutely wonderful, unparalled service and treated with the utmost respect.
I would recommend it wholeheartedly.

As soon as we reached our destination I couldn't stop saying WOW!!! What an incrediable place. We absolutley loved the room and the view was spectacular. The food was amazing. It was the best breakfast we had had all holidays. Zina is a fabulous cook.
Sitting and overlooking the turquoise sea each morning and muching on delicacies, who could ask for more. All the family was great and so helpful. I would definatley return to Villa Renos. Loved it, loved it, loved it and cant say enough about how great it was.
Good location a bit of climbing but not too much, very do able. very happy traveller. Jennie
