Elkaza Villas

Reviewed 27 December 2011

looking for a hotel in Santorin during the peak season was a big challenge. As pure addict of Tripadvisor, we were looking for hours for the good place and between the honey moon hotels and some B&B in the countryside, the VILLA ELKAZA was the best choice, we could ever do !
Liberty was really nice, welcoming to us. She advised us, where to go for the beach (Perissa: black sand), the short way to go to the city...
The villa we choose was really beautiful, we were 3 and had enough places to have a good rest. The decoration inside is really nice, it give you the feeling, that somebody is waiting of you. The villa elkaza is exactly in the good place, between Imerovigli and Fira, which let you the possibility evenings to come back at the hotel late.

It was my first time on the island and the stay at the villa Elkaza make my holiday just more perfect. I am really happy to have find the address through tripadvisor and really happy that Liberty could be so helpful.

A small cozy place in a charming island. Special treatment from the hotel's staff and very clean rooms. A lovely yard and a short distance from center. I will go back for sure

I recently visited Villa Elkaza, along with my best friend, and it was definately the right place to stay. Since the hotel was located very close to the centre of Fira, it was very easy for us to move around without trouble, since all the clubs and bars of fira were 5 minutes away from us, as was the local bus station, which was a real convinience. Upon arrival, we were greated by the hotel owner, Eleutheria, who was very friendly and helpful to us. She actually made our stay easier, by answering any questions we might have had about how to get around on the island. Also, she has a lovely taste, and all the rooms were brightly decorated, something that shows she put a lot of soul into her business, and does credit to the hotel. The room was clean, and very spacious for us 2, and even if we didn't spend much time in it, i think i would gladly stay in if we had more time.. we only stayed for 4 nights, which was a shame.. Also, since i am a light sleeper, i must say the bed was very comfy and the location really quiet, so i enjoyed resting there. We didn't get the chance to try breakfast there, so i can't comment on it.. but the facility all together is great value for money. i would definately reccomend this hotel to friends and couples, but not really to families with young children, since i think the hotel should be a little more organised in order to cope with the different needs of a guest family. All in all, we were satisfied and we might as well revisit the place if we get the chance. Santorini is indeed a great place to see!

Room Tip: Higher floors have better acces to the street behind the hotel, and perhaps a better view of the sea...

My wife and I spent two nights at the Elkaza Apartments. It's a no frills place. Just someplace to lay your head with no bells and whistles. The room is a decent size. The shower is TINY even for European standards. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and informative. However, no one is available at the front desk between the hours of 2-6:30pm, which is a little annoying.

My wife and I timed the walk to the center of town (or the shopping area). It took us about 11 minutes. It's a steep up hill walk to get to the main strip, so if you're out of shape you may want to stay someplace else.

The front desk can arrange tours and we bought bus tickets through them for a tour of all of southern Santorini. Worked out well.

Breakfast is left in your mini fridge the night before. It consists of 4 pieces of bread to use in the in room toaster, jam, butter, jelly, two croissants and a pitcher of juice.

I'm most thankful the room came with a mosquito net! Mosquito's are notorious on Santorini and rip me apart at night while sleeping. This was the first place we stayed that provided a mosquito net and I was thankful! Even with the net I was still bitten in my sleep twice. Oh well.

On arrival We were greeted by friendly Liberty the hotelier who recommended some must sees whilst in Santorini. The room was basic but well-thought out. We had a breakfast basket in the fridge with toast, orange juice and croissants. Very Nice.

Everything was perfect. We were in a group of 8 and had the best time we have all travelled for more than three months and it was deffinetly one of the best apartments we have stayed in. Santorini is amazing! You have to see the sunset at oia and eat lunch dinner breakfast at salt an peper o the main drag. It is opposite Avis car rental. Best meal in all of Greece! And they love Australians! Liberty will help you with all your needs and bent over backwards to help us.
