Reviewed 12 May 2012

We stayed at the Avaton Report in Imerovigli for our honeymoon and had a wonderful time. The weather was a little hit or miss because our trip was in April and I truthfully believe that our trip wouldn't have been half as nice if we stayed some where else. First of all, on the days that had rain and wind, my wife and I spent time getting pampered: she had her nails done, I enjoyed the sauna/steam room, we had a couples massage and a bottle of champagne....all in a cave! On the other days, Laura at the front desk set us up with dinner reservations, ATVs, and an amazing Catamaran ride around the island.

Reviewed 7 May 2012

We stayed in Avaton for 5 nights in May 2012.

I have to say this is a very impressive hotel and the thing that makes it that way is (among all other things that are great) - the service. Laura and Marcus (as well as other staff members) make sure none of your wishes is left unfulfilled.

The hotel itself is build on one of the highest parts of caldera with stunning view and BEST sunset view (really, once you will see the "famous" Oia sunset and compare it to the view you have from your balcony or even bed in Avaton, you'll see what I am talking about). It is very stylish, design oriented, boutique hotel. It has 9 rooms and suites. Guest were couples in 30-40ies, quite, all enjoying and relaxing.

The breakfast is excellent, everything we tried was great and delicious. You let them know your wishes and time of delivery day before, and the next morning the breakfast is served in your room or balcony so you can enjoy the view and good food. Also room service food was excellent.

Rooms are very nice, Santorini (cave) style, but modern, with attention to detail. We were upgraded to a deluxe room, which is on 1st floor with balcony. Each room is equipped with a wi-fi router, so the reception is excellent (although I had some problems with internet, but I believe it was the external connection). Also, the TV in room has DVD player so you can bring your own DVD's for case of bad weather...

There is a SPA in the cave, which is turned into a restaurant in the evening. Have tried small IR sauna which was OK, but turkish sauna (stam-room) is little bigger and I guess also better. Haven't tried the massages.

The location of hotel is at the end of Imerovigli village (public/free parking is 50m from hotel). Imerovigli itself is a quite village, with some tavernas and nice hotels. We liked it that way that is why we have chosen this place, but if you want action, Thira would be a better choice.

I would definitely go back to this hotel. There is only one thing that was bothering us, that was the wind, which was blowing (as the location of hotel is very open on all sides), but I guess this could be a bonus if you are there in hot summer months. Highly Recommend it.

Thank you all we had an excellent time!

Avaton definitely exceeded my expectations. Laura, Marcus and Zoe went out of their way to make my birthday escape very memorable. Their attention to detail and commitment to customer service was second to none. Will recommend Avaton and hope to return soon!

We stayed here in June 2011 and had a wonderful relaxing holiday. Our room was tucked away into the corner so offered great privacy. Our room was very modern and contemporary. My only gripe would be the bed is on a concrete base right upagainst the wall so whoever sleeps next to the wall wakes the other person up if they need to get up during the night.
Breakfast was delightful with a huge selection of hot and cold food all served on your terrace at a time that was suitable for us. The pool was small but beautiful with great views over the caldera infact it was just like looking out into a picture postcard. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help out. I had a massage in the spa and that was a fantastic treat. On the whole we had a great time in a wonderful location.

We loved our stay at Avaton. The service was friendly and unobstrusive, the hotel is beautiful and intimate. It is just far enough from the hustle that you can really relax, but close enough to go anywhere on the Island in minutes.

Room Tip: Absolutely stay in the suite. It is in the best location in the property and chilling in the private...

when i arrived to santorini we were pick up on a small bus which was very nice in side, we then were going to the hotel were we were going to stay we were told that if we like we could be upgraded to the avation, so when was told that i said yes, when we got there i found all the staff to be very profesional, frendly and could not do enough to help, but not still giving us some space, also they were very accomadating toward us as a gay couple, i was a bit worried about this as this is a small island and there is no gay bar or gay life on the island.
it was a truly wonderfull experance the breakfast was very good and it was very nice that we could sit out side are rooms watching the day go by as we were having breakfast, the rooms were very clean, the only small problem was the internet was not so good, but i did not use that much as the island is so nice to see and there is so many parts that you will want to go to. but the 2 best parts of this hotel is the spa it is very nice, and the sunsets these are truely breath taking. i would love to go back again, but for longer this time. i would like to thank all the staff that made my are time there so great mr keiran john mcauley

I can't have enough to say about this place! Simply the best place to be on earth! Exceptionally good service, amazingly clean and comfy rooms (Laura and Marcus are the best!), breathtaking view! My husband and I enjoyed tremendously during our 5 days stay here.
