“Everything about this place was great”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

We stayed there for four nights which gave us ample time to visit the whole island. Marina was exceptional in recommending sites to see, restaurants to try and walks to take. She recommended a rental place cousin I think and we ended up renting an ATV for a few days which worked perfectly. The visit to ancient villages was accessible this way and we got to see many beaches and try different roads. Lunch at the OIA beach Armos ammoudiou was the thing to do on a beautiful day. It has old style taverns right on the water. I would not hesitate to recommend the Costa Marina. The rooms in this new section were large with everything one needed. The front has a small balcony facing the ocean where weather permitting breakfast could be enjoyed or a drink in the evening. Breakfast was definitely worth it and staff were so helpful. Marina thank you for all of your advice and information. Hope to come back some day .

We, my wife, daughter and two boys - 3 years and one - stayed at Costa Marina Villas in Fira in late November 2013 following a review of TripAdvisor comments. I'm delighted we chose Costa Marina. Marina Pelekanou, daughter of the owner and Villa namesake, provided the top-flight hospitality at the Villa, and recommended for restaurants plus historical and cultural insight to the island. I must say she is a tireless worker; she was always available. Our second floor quad room had a sea view balcony and two beds in the loft. The Villa rooms are beautifully decorated, very clean, have flat screen TVs with true high speed Wi-Fi - 15mb DL, 2mb UL.

The Villa location is 200 meters from central Fira, which is good. Its distance from the maddening crowd provides a quiet stay, particularly in the high season. For breakfast we chose to dine at the Pelican Kipos, at the family owned Pelican Hotel. The outdoor cafe is first rate.

I'm glad we visited Santorini during the slow season. Although many restaurants, shops and tourist areas closed for the season we located excellent restaurants frequented by the locals, cafes and a few shops for the three-day stay.

I highly recommend the Villas - top rate - price, quality and convenience. Thanks again Marina!

Room Tip: Request a sea side room - its peaceful and provides a terrific view.

It was the best hotel I have ever ever visited! Very clean room, romantic with rocky walls. Also the shower in the bathroom it was like a cave! Very impressive!!The breakfast was various and delicious! Very close to the center, about five minutes by foot. Nice gloomy garden with beautiful flowers around! Surely I will stay to the same hotel all the next times that I travel to Santorini!!

My wife chose this hotel after reading the reviews. We were overwhelmed by the hospitality of Marina Pelekanou, the daughter of the hotel owner. Not only she was informative, she even took the trouble to assist in arranging for rent a car and booking of tour & hotel in kalambaka.
The hotel is clean, it's less than 10 mins walk to the eateries.
I strongly recommend visitors to stay in this hotel. Marina Pelekanou, thank you very much. You made our stay so pleasant and definitely a memorable one.

We stayed three wonderful nights at the Costa Marina in late September. From the moment we arrived Marina couldn't do enough for us, arranging a rental car, giving us suggestions of what to do and see and just always offering assistance. We had a late departure and were given a late check out which Marina extended even further, insisting we have a sleep before our driver arrived to pick us up. We would definitely recommend this conveniently located villa to anyone looking for value for money.

Martina and Maria made this 4 day stay an enjoyable and informative one. Seemed like Martina, whose father is the owner, was always there when we needed her - for Santorini information or Greek culture. Our room was on the lower level where they have recently opened a few new rooms, and it was comfortable and roomy with a beautifully designed bathroom. The CM Villas is very affordable and conveniently located. We got a cab from the port to get there. I think that is the easiest way to get there. (Although the bus terminal is only 2 or 3 blocks if you want to take the bus from the port). We also used the convenient laundry just a block away since it was the middle of a three week trip for us. Highly recommended, I'll stay there again when I return.

We visited Costa Marina Villas in October for 3 nights. Everything about our stay was very easy. The hotel is very warm and inviting. The staff is incredibly friendly and go above and beyond. The facility is clean and well maintained. Our room was large and included a fridge, safe and hairdryer. The hotel has a nice sitting area indoors and patios to sit outdoors. Our only complaint was with the comfort of the bed ... it was very hard and uncomfortable. The hotel is located off the main strip so nice and quiet. It is an easy walk to the city centre, the caldera, and the bus station. The breakfast included in our room rate was fantastic with plenty of variety.
