Let me say first that this is not really a review of Stelios Place, but of the associated appartments "Evelina" which is owned by their relative. Stelios picked us up and dropped us off when needed, recommended the good scooter rental, suggested good restaurant. and booked the tour at prevailing rates for us. Location is hard to beat. So, only good words for Stelios Place. My only issue is that the apartments is just not the same place, run by different people.

When we booked our stay (a room with a double bed) we were told that the room is at the apartments, but there is no difference. I beg to differ. From the glimpses of the rooms at Stelios it looked quite a bit better. The person who looks over the apartments is not available all the time. Our room had clogged drain in the bathroom. Since there is no shower "tub", the showers drains to the floor of the bathroom, and with clogged drain, out into the room. In the late evening (after 11pm) we had a choice of either waiting for the "lady" there to be located (no telling when), or cleaning the whole room ourselves (chose latter). Next day we were told that the drain was fixed, but it was not. We gave up and resorted to turning water in the shower for less than 30 seconds at a time then waiting for the slow drain to catch up, so the room would not flood anymore.
The room did have the fridge and was of a decent size, with AC.
So I would recommend staying at Stelios itself, less so at the apartments.

We had a rough start to our stay at Stelios Place. Stelio added more stress than needed to our wonderful honeymoon. We were unable to book a ferry or plane to Santorini on our set day of arrival. We called 3 days before and said that we would be arriving one day late from Crete which was disappointing to us. Stelio and his family was far from willing to help us. They became very defensive and angry and were unwilling to cancel the night. We remained calm and they were willing to "split" the night that we missed. We decided to avoid any conflict and went on to have a positive experience at this budget hotel. You get what you pay for and this hotel is much more like a hostel. We would never stay again.

We finally arrived in Santorini (after a cancelled ferry) at 9.30pm at night and Stelios was there at the airport to pick us up. The next afternoon we were trying to book a taxi in the afternoon to our next destination but none were available after trying for half an hour, so the wife of Stelios bundled us and our luggage up into here little car and drove us to the marina, all with a big smile, nothing was too much trouble. Our room was nice, basic and spacious, with a lovely out look to the pool and the ocean. I would definitely stay here again.

I would highly recommend this hotel. The value for money, cleanliness and friendly vibe is just what was needed and I could not have asked for more. It's perfect for young people on a budget that want to be close to the beach, nightlife and sun-bathe by a lovely clean water pool.

It really feels as though you are staying with family/friends rather than at a hotel.

I could not recommend this highly enough - A must stay resort!

Stelios Place is an oasis on Santorini. The friendly owners make you feel like guests at a large home instead of customers at a hotel. The property is kept immaculate, and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Also, the rates are more than fair.

I would HIGHLY recommend other visitors to Santorini--especially young people--consider this "place."
