“Lovely end to our honeymoon”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for the second half of our honeymoon and the hotel kindly gave us a bottle of wine which was much appreciated
We booked a suite with a hot tub - this was not a UK version of a hot tub as it was freezing cold! We only used it once although it was nice to have our own enclosed courtyard that was lovely and private after dinner we'd spend most nights here drinking.
The room was lovely, the hotel was a 5 min walk to the beach.
We did a number of trips on he local buses and hired a quad from down the road
The breakfast was adequate we can't comment on the evening food and drink as we mostly walked down to the beach and ate and drank there - our fave restaurant was The volcano
I would come back here again

Stayed September 2013, travelled as a couple

My wife and I are very used to the basic nature of Greek accommodation, but for the price this was very disappointing. Although clean, the maid was very thorough and brought in our dry clothes off the drier each day, you cannot do a lot with such a small and tired room (41). The bathroom was tiny and you had to be confident not to fall over in the cramped bath / shower (shower curtain clinging to you all the time - not nice.) The bed was uncomfortable but we got used to that. The actual staff were very helpful. As for the satellite TV, we got CNN and that was it! The pool area is quite nice and relaxing, apart from the fact that you are force fed music from the 70's & 80's (I was expecting Wham, and they didn't disappoint!) If you wanted to self-cater, you get a saucepan and kettle. So, if you want beans with your cup of tea, you're sorted. As I say, for the price this was not good enough. Fantastic island and resort though.

Room Tip: Go for the bigger studio. Can't say what the actual hotel rooms were like.

My husband and I just left a 3 day stay at meltimi village today. We did not have a good experience. We are fine with hotels that are basic and clean. While the common areas and breakfast at meltimi were fine, the room itself was down right depressing. It had very limited light.. We couldn't see after dark ...and one of 2 small light fixtures over the bed the bulb was burned out. We told the desk, and they didn't care. They never fixed it.. The mirror in the bath was corroding from the bottom. No bath tub at all.. Just a shower stall. There were ants on the bathroom floor. The refrigerator in the room didn't work. Pine leaves were on the floor every day from a crack under a window. There was no safe... we were told we had to pay extra for a safe in the reception.We asked the staff at front the first night if we could pay more to get a better room. The lady was on the phone and unconcerned for us.. And then told us she had no authority to give out different rooms, and come back tomorrow. They never offered or cared to assist with our bags. There were no transfers to the airport. We went back and were told an upgrade was not possible. We couldn't leave the place because the room was prepaid through a travel company. The room ruined our stay in beautiful Santorini. It was worse than a youth hostel. We went to the airport and paid a large fee to change our flight tickets to get out. Do not stay at this hotel.

Spent three nights at Meltemi Village and it was a great stay from beginning to end. The receptionist, Roy was really great when we checked in. She explained everything that we needed to know. Manolis is the manager and he recommended a beautiful restaurant for my wife and I to celebrate our 2 year anniversary in Oia and was very responsive via email when I had questions. Andreas at the pool bar was awesome. My wife and I loved the music he was playing at the pool the entire three days we were there.

When you get to your room, it feels like you're in your own little cabana. Beautiful flowers cover the grounds and the buildings have that iconic white Santorini look. We stayed in a standard room and it was just that. Had a small kitchenette, bathroom, small TV and we had one double and one single bed. It was more than we needed considering we spend most of our time outside of the room.

The included breakfast is great. Lots of different choices ranging from baked goods to hot foods and everything was delicious.

The pool is very nice. There were a lot of sun beds available any time we went but I can see as this place gets busy they might not as available.

Getting to Fira was easy enough using the bus as there is a stop right outside the hotel. It costs $2.20 Euro each way and depending on if you get the express, takes between 20 and 35 minutes. But beware, buses coming back from Fira will be packed. My wife and I had to stand a few times. If you get claustrophobic, you may want to consider a taxi which is about 20-25 Euro.

The beach is a 5 minute walk down one street. Easy enough to get to. It's very different as it's black volcanic 'sand' that gets extremely hot. There are a ton of restaurants on the stretch of beach that cater to all nationalities. I prefer to eat local food so I can't attest to any other dishes.

Last but not least, the hotel is so thoughtful they provided a bottle of wine and a very nice note on our anniversary to help us celebrate. We really appreciated that extra effort and we definitely wouldn't even consider staying at another hotel on Santorini after that.

Overall, you can't go wrong staying at Meltemi Village.

We wanted to go to Santorini but we were unsure on where to go... Then we found this gem! I was 6 months pregnant at the time so we got a suite which had a jacuzzi (well a cold bath) which turned out to be perfect! The room was so clean and tidy, we had so much privacy and the jacuzzi was just what I needed!
The staff are incredible! so helpful and always smiling. Well actually I could say that about all Greeks! they were lovely. Perissa itself doesn't look like much at first but to us it was the best beach by far!
I would highly recommend hiring a car for a day. To get to the other end of the island it is only a 45 minute drive but you can go to Oia for the sunset. Be prepared Oia is beautiful but expensive!!
I would strongly recommend Meltemi Village it really was great :)

For many years now we are enjoying our yearly stay at the Meltemi Hotel in Perissa. We are so very pleased about the outstanding service, the very friendly and helpful staff and owner as well the clean and comfortable rooms. The food could also not be better and is everyday a delight for our senses. So far there was never a reason to complain - we only have compliments to give. At the Meltemi Hotel we feel like beeing home! We are so greatful that we can enjoy unforgetable holidays every year at the Meltemi Hotel.

Room Tip: We have stayed at many different rooms and suites and they all are recommendable. Of course rooms on...

Stayed here 4 years ago and this time returned with 2 kids, 13 & 10! Great hotel for excellent people like Manolis, Roy, and Andreas- the fabulous bar , breakfast boy! We loved our 11 days and the people - staff made us warmly welcomed dare I say feeling at home! The room with loft worked for us but second floor was warm. The bed, that squeaked was minor and quickly fixed! Great offer to move but the loft ended up fine. Totally love the pool, fabulous breakfast, outstanding people who offered advice, laughs, and lots of friendship! You REALLY relax at the Meltemi! Love to return to Meltemi maybe an upscale family suite!!!??? ... Only a suggestion if we get to try it out!!
