“Wonderful people, great hotel!”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

My wife and I stayed at Costa Marina Villas from September 13 to 15, 2013. We only wish we had stayed longer. Marina and her family took every opportunity to make us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. We came with very few plans, but Marina's insight and guidance ensured that we saw many of Santorini's sites, even on a tight timeline.

Our room was well-maintained, comfortable, and air conditioned, and provided all the amenities for a great night's sleep. Marina's family owns and operates a restaurant just a short walk from the hotel where we enjoyed a delicious dinner at very reasonable prices. Without a doubt, our next visit to Santorini will include a stay at Costa Marina Villas.

This was my first hotel in my solo tour of the Greek Islands. Marina and her staff were obliging and attentive and the hotel was charming. The rooms were spacious and my room had a small balcony with a lovely view. Breakfast was great - lots of yummy fruit, yoghurt and great coffee..

It is by pure good luck that we ended staying at Costa Marina Villas - a travel agent booked us in. I don't often write reviews, the stay has to be impressive for me to do so, so that fact that I am writing now is significant. It is only since leaving and having decided to write a review, that I have read all the other reviews. Everything written is correct, there is not much to add. Great breakfast, great rooms, great standards in cleanliness, great location quiet but close to the action, great sun and moon rises. But it is Marina that made our stay fantastic. She is the key. Perfect everything about a place can easily be spoiled by unfriendly and unhelpful staff. What all the reviews say and we concur, is that Marina's hospitality is outstanding, she is just exceptionally good and seems to enjoy what she does. I would recommend Costa Marina Villas. I hope to return to Santorini and will definitely seek out Marina's place again. Well done Marina and thank you for making our stay delightful.

We stayed here in a triple room in the very end of July this year. The hotel was great with good air conditioning.(it was very hot). The staff was some of the best we have ever had. Great to deal with and extremely friendly. We will never forget our time on Santorini Island.

Room Tip: The triple room was spacious with a loft for the third person.

As soon as we walked in, Marina told us that if we only had one night in Santorini and haven't been there before, we needed to get on the bus to Oia right away to experience it that evening. She quickly got us a bus schedule to make it very easy for us.

When she was checking us in and guiding us to our room on the second floor, she noticed that our bags were pretty heavy and immediately offered us one of the rooms on the first floor.

Those are just a couple of examples, but we got that kind of support the whole visit.

The hotel itself is beautiful inside and out and, although it isn't on the cliffs, it is very conveniently located in Fira. The price is also extremely reasonable. Breakfast is also great and an amazing amount of food for the price.

We liked this hotel so much that it inspired us to stay one more night on Santorini than we had been planning. If we were going back to Santorini, there is no question that this is where we would stay.

This villa/hotel is wonderful. It is not in the city center but is only a 5 minute walk. The rooms we had were a bit small, but it provided everything you need. It was super clean, well taken care of, and the staff was superb. Very friendly, especially the daughter Marina. What a wonderful gal who helped us with a lot of travel planning. If you don't have any plans just leave to her. Definitely worth staying here, as it is very quiet and breakfast was simple and good (5euro each).

My husband and I arrived by ferry from Paros to Fira and took cab to Costa Marina Villas. Marina met us at the desk as an old friend. She allowed us to choose another room that we loved rather than one given us. Such a gracious gesture and much appreciated. Breakfast was served daily which was abundant, healthy and delicious. During our four days there, Marina and staff explained options and helped us make the best choices for us. When asked, she encouraged us to rent a car and arranged that. It is the only way to thoroughly explore Santorini because crowded bus schedules and tours are not for us at age 75. One must have good driving experience and a light heart but we happily traveled to many wonderful places. We won't wait for another anniversary to visit this hotel again. Thanks so much, Marina. We were not able to give you a proper good bye. It was said that you were frolicking at the volcano when we left; good for you!
