Reviewed 25 July 2012

Stayed July 2012 based on the amazing reviews. Not too sure how the reviews were so great, this is a very basic but clean hotel. It seems that it's glory days may be in the past, but the owners make a great effort to make you feel welcome.

Pros
Clean rooms
Clean pool
Friendly staff
5 mins to beach front and restaurants
Air con

Cons
Temperamental air con
Could feel every spring in the bed
Old worn pillows

Bit of a comedy of errors when we stayed. We moved from first room as you could hear very loud banging in the pipes during the night. Second room the air con broke. Felt a bit bad for the owners as they were very apologetic and had no problem moving us, but feel that this place needs a bit of updating.

If you're looking for any kind of glitz or glamour this place isn't for you.

Room Tip: don't choose room 9..........noisy pipes!

Hei.
I was in Santorini late july 2012 and stayed here for 2 weeks.
The room was very clean every day,but it was small. The shower was small,the bed was hard so was the pillows. It was very easy to hear the neighboors.
the posetiv: It was clean, the pool was excellent, very nice staff that did the most they could do to help you, generrely a very good atmosphere there. But if you are looking for a hilton hotel,this is not it.keep looking.

we visited hotel clio at the end of may 2012 and had a fantastic week. Elani and Adonis could not have done anymore to make us feel welcome.The room was basic but very clean and the pool and surround was spotless.There are plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from and a great bakery about 10minutes walk away.If you want a relaxing break this is the place to come to. We will certainly be returning ABSOLUTELY

We have just returned from a week’s holiday at the Villa Clio in Santorini. I don’t normally write reviews on places we visit but felt that I had to write one for the Villa Clio. As soon as we arrived and Heleni met us, we were made to feel welcome. We had been allocated a room on the first floor but as my mum has difficulty with the stairs we asked for a room on the ground floor which we were given straight away. The rooms are basic but very clean. There is a ceiling fan in the room which was on most of the time we were there as it was so warm but you could also have the air conditioning on at an extra cost. The pool and pool area is also very clean (Adonis cleans it every night). The breakfast is bread and butter and jam with either tea or coffee but you can have ham and cheese at a small extra cost. We didn’t bother as we found it adequate. Quite often in the evenings, we would go out for our meal then return to the Villa and sit on the patio having a drink and chatting to Heleni and Adonis. They made us feel that we were more like friends than paying guests.
The beach is about 5/10 minutes walk in one direction and the main road and town about 5/10 minutes walk in the other direction. There is a large selection of bars and restaurants all of which serve good food at a reasonable price. Before we came to Santorini there was a report on the news that tourism to Greece was down this year as people thought that they would be “done”or “cheated” by the Greeks because of the economic climate there, but we found prices on a par if not cheaper than other European countries we have been to in the last few years. Also, the Greeks seem to go out of their way to be friendly and to provide a good service.
One last point, Heleni has been having problems with her internet provider and is losing custom because of this. If you want to book with her, please phone or fax her direct.
All in all I would recommend the Villa Clio for a quiet and relaxing holiday and would definitely go back again.

What makes a holiday? Homely, friends, clean and relaxing!! Heleni and Adonis make this a little home from home, so friendly and so helpful! Nothing is to much hassle and the just genuinely want to make your holiday the best for you! The rooms are simple but comfortable, spotlessly clean. The breakfast is very simple but just what you want when you stroll down stairs to the open eating are in front of the pool. It is a five minute stroll to the beach, restaurants and a little further to the bars.
All in all a very cheap stay where I would have been happy to pay double what I did!

We visited the Villa Clio in September 2011 and had a fantastic week meeting the owners and many regular guests. We soon realised why they return time after time. Santorini is a beautiful island with many places to visit and the local people are so friendly. The resort of Perissa has lots of great bars and restaurants to relax in and enjoy. We returned again in May of this year and enjoyed it even more than our first visit. Eleni and Adonis are the perfect hosts and are a major reason why so many people return to the Clio. If you want a good base in Santorini for a week or two then i really recommend the villa Clio.

Room Tip: Spend a little time to talk to Eleni and Adonis. They are lovely people.

What a great holiday . As people who normall do 4/5 star AI this was an advenure for us. We had always wanted to visit Sanorini but could not afford the expensive places usually offered in brochures. We found Villa Clio through tripadvisor & booked flights/transfers/accomodaion through Travel Republic & everything went smoothly. We requested a pool view directly to Villa Clio before travelling, even offering to pay extra. Pool view was confirmed at no extra charge. On arrival we were met by Eleni who made us very welcome offering reasonabl priced extras like drinks/meals/snacks. Breakfast menu is very limited but we found the offered greek bread & jam with coffee more than sufficient. The pool area is great with a great pool that is well maintained by Adonis. Plenty of sunbeds & place to lay out & enjoy the sunshine. Location is within 8-10 minutes of beach area with lots of bars & resaurants. Also within 8-10 minutes in other direction is the main road into Perissa wih even more bars & restaurants. We took top 20 restaurants in Perissa from Trip Advisor & tried most with no disappointments. Would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a quiet retreat with everything close-by including an absolutely wonderful island just waiting to be explored...............many many thanks to Eleni & Adonis(owners)........& the wonderful fellow guests many of whom were return visitors from many years

Room Tip: pick a poolview room................upstairs
