“Very nice if you are willing to pay”
Reviewed 10 July 2012 via mobile

We had a very nice 3 night stay at this hotel. Very clean, very beautiful views, staff friendly and location pretty good.

The pool was incredibly nice, however lack enough sun beds and more importantly umbrellas. The sun in summer is too hot to not have shade and therefore everyone competed for the umbrellas but there just weren't enough.

The room was great, with an awesome view and plenty of space. Breakfast was also nice, however the bacon/eggs left a lot to be desired.

There are probably alternative cheaper places to stay in Fira, but this hotel was worth the extra money

Tzekos is situated on the side of the cliff, with stunning views of surrounding Islands,the ocean, cruise ships that birth in the waters off Santorini and other vessels sailing in the waters. The staff are fantastic! Their english is excellent, and they are extremely helpful with suggestions for excursions around the Island or restaurants to eat at night. The breakfasts are most enjoyable. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. The only thing that's a little hard to get used to, is not being able to flush the toilet paper down the toilet! It is well situated to the main shopping strip of Fira, and is well located to the bus terminal, making getting around the Island a breeze. We can not recommend this hotel highly enough. If you go there, enjoy your stay!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a private balcony if you like to sit outside to have a pre dinner drink, or just...

Wonderful place to stay (although stairs were hard for my mother). Beautiful view over the Caldera and the man at the pool bar was fantastic! Lovely holiday!!!

This property has a stunning view from all parts of the Villas.
When you wake in the morning or go to bed at night the view is still stunning.

If you dont like stairs then probally best not to stay here but the porter does a brilliant job of taking your luggage.

The rooms are just like the photos and the property is better then pictured

I will be staying here again :)

We stayed in the private suite with the outdoor hot tab from where you can see the sunset and enjoy the stunning view,
The pool is fantastic with full bar service and towels daily. To get around Santorini they arranged for a quad bike, great fun!
Definitely recommended going on a sunset cruise.
Thank you all for making our stay so wonderful!

We spent 3 nights at the Villas and loved it .You can sit by the pool at sunset and get an amazing view of the Caldera we didn't bother going to Oia.
Lots of stairs so you might want to ask for a room higher up the cliff face if you don't enjoy the stairs.
Our room was spacious and clean and the balcony was superb to enjoy a wine and watch the sunset.
Breakfast was sufficient and the staff very friendly.
Try Mamma Place for dinner owner has son living in Perth so make sure you mention you are from aus and she will look after you .Good idea to book very popular .desk will give you directions to her resturant

We urge travellers to re think if they've booked themselves into Tzekos Villas Hotel, WE HAD THE WORSE EXPERIENCE and must warn all other travellers who booked at this hotel.

We have booked a Junior Suite, the images on booking.com and Tzekos Villas websites, shown this room with a hot tub facing the sunset, beautiful view. When we checked in, the room given with no window, cold tub hidden under the stairs case, completely different from the photo shown on the websites. We've refused to stay in that room and downgraded ourselves to a superior room. The Hotel Manager, Stefanos [--] came to the hotel in the morning, we have negotiated a rate for the room we have switch to and agreed with the refund of 207euro, when we got back to Australia, we email booking.com to arrange for the refund as agreed by Hotel Manager and he has dis honour his words and only refunded us 90euro less than half of what he has agreed. For A MAN to dis honour his words for just 117 euro he such a LOSER and such a CON MAN.

We have had bad experience at this hotel together with another Australian couple check in as the same time as us also dis like the hotel.

Service was poor, breakfast was terrible, rates are too high comparing to other much more beautiful hotels in Santorini. The room we have switched to the bathroom is blooded when we use the bath and release the water.

We booked this hotel base on the reviews and mainly because of the view but all hotels in Santorini offer great view. You can find a better hotel with better service and better value.

On this image on tripadvisor is the room we booked, the below images are the room we have given such misleading. For you to have a good holiday in beautiful Santorini I suggest you not to stay at this hotel.
