Honeymoon Petra Villas
Ranked #14 of 51 Hotels in Imerovigli
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 September 2012

We had a fantastic week staying at Honeymoon Petra Villas in August 2012. The accommodation was excellent - we stayed in room 25 which is one of the 4 person suites. The room was amazing, spotless and just what we'd hoped for. The bed was also one of the most comfortable I've slept in! The pool as perfect, and the staff were all very helpful and friendly. Most of all, the views were unbelievable. We hired a small jeep to get around the island, but found it hard to drag ourselves away from the hotel as the view just can't be beaten! We would recommend the hotel very highly, and will definitely be coming back.

Room Tip: Room 25 was amazing - loads of space, two verandahs and right next to the pool.

This is a very late review but I hope it helps.
Stayed in Honeymoon Petra Villas early June 2011 for 3 nights- the whole experience is amazing.

There was a hotel bus that picked us up from the ferry terminal and brought us to Imerovigli; the ride was quick, took about 15-20 minutes and the view was amazing. We were then brought to the hotel reception; and given our keys.

The staff were incredibly helpful- gave us good suggestions of restaurants and things to do.

The room: spacious, clean, and very 'Greek' with air-conditioning. We had a massive balcony as well, with the most amazing view. Toilet + Shower: small, but again clean
Pool: We walked past a few other hotels; and honestly thought our pool was a good size comparing to others. It was never crowded, there was always a sunbed to use (that was early June so perhaps things might be different in August).
Restaurant: we didnt eat in the restuarant for lunch/dinner. Breakfast is buffet- good variety but dont expect michelin-star meals!
The hotel itself is in a good location- it is pretty easy to navigate yourself around Imerovigli (lots of steps- It is advisable to wear sensible shoes). We rented a motorcycle which made it a lot easier to navigate the island. Dont just stay in the hotel! Santorini is a beautiful place.

I would definitely recommend staying in Honeymoon Petra Villas!

We stayed at honeymoon petra villas in august.
This resort gives u luxury personified.
Staying at this resort in a place like Santorini is the best thing you could do. We stayed here for about 4 days and we did not have to go anywhere else because this is at the most beautiful location of the island.

They have beautiful cave like studio rooms which are very comfortable.
Also, you get to see the most beautiful sunset from their pool area and experience the best hospitality. The crew is wonderful. The girl at the reception "Evi" (i think that was her name) is very helpful and cheerful and the owner is also treats you like u're at home.
you do not need to go Oia or anywhere else to see the sunset. You can the most beautiful view of an absolutely beautiful from the pool area of this resort.

We visited Santorini in June and stayed at the Honeymoon Petras Villas. Our stayed began overlooking the breathtaking caldera. This hotel has the most magical views on earth. The staff was super friendly as was the owner who on several occassions sat down and had drinks with us, enthralling everyone with his life story. A visit to Santorini and the Honeymoon Petras, is not complete without a tour on the Carpe Diem, one of their three boats. The crew, [hello Eleni], was attentive, friendly and knowledgable, anticipating our every need. We will definetly be back.

My wife and I spent our 1 week honeymoon at this hotel and the best feature that this hotel has to offer is the spectacular views. Before we booked this hotel we read so many comments regarding the views and the fact that photos don’t do it justice and its so true. We've never seen such beautiful sunsets which we took pleasure in watching every evening. One other key thing we noticed is that many of the other nearby hotels were not suitably located to see the sunset in its entirety. Finally the hotel is a 2 minute walk from the local shops and restaurants. So for location this hotel gets top marks.
Please note though, this review is based on two young healthy adults. We both commented that the terrain in Imerovigli (not just this hotel) would probably not be suitable for wheelchair users or those with walking difficulties.

The service is also very good, we were very impressed with our welcome and tour of the facilities and we received a complementary drink on arrival. Furthermore when we met the owner he was kind enough to buy us another complimentary drink. The girls on reception were very helpful and very friendly and helped make our stay an enjoyable one.

The pool is excellent and around the hotel there are plenty of sun lounges. We were told on arrival that the pool bar is open 24 hours a day and there is a good selection of drinks available, however it was quite expensive compared to the other places we bought a drink. There is food available from the pool bar but I cannot comment on this because we never ate there. Breakfast was served in the restaurant every morning between 08:00 and 10:30 and was very good.

Everything I’ve mentioned so far makes this hotel worthy of 5 stars so you may be wondering why I’m giving it 4. The answer is the accommodation. There are two parts to this hotel, one of which is very new and modern but the other is slightly older and it looks tired in parts. We were shown the newer accommodation, it is amazing, had we stopped there I’m sure I would have given the hotel top marks, but we stopped in the older part. Although the layout of the room is very nice, the furniture and decor look rather tired and it feels sub-standard compared to the newer stuff. It is also further away from the facilities of the hotel but it is closer to the reception. Our shower head was a bit flimsy and on the last morning there was no hot water available.

I would certainly recommend this hotel to couples, but would probably advise families to try other hotels as the facilities for children are limited.

Room Tip: Try to get one of the newer rooms.

This was a huge trip for myself and my finance to celebrate our engagement and kick off our new life together. We couldn't have been more pleased with every aspect of our trip from the second we arrived at the hotel. From the welcome drink at the amazing infinity pool overlooking what could possibly be the greatest view we have ever seen, to the goodbye drink with Yannis and Eva, our partners in crime on a three day private sail to numerous remote islands, everything was done first class.

We had booked the sail and stay which included two nights at the resort followed by a three night sail and finished with another 3 nights at the resort. What we first noticed was the quiet and relaxing nature of the resort. the staff was friendly and amazing. Cabanas gave a spectacular view and a beautiful place to just relax, unwind and just enjoy the scenery while soothing music played in the background. Our room was beautiful and our patio again had a view that is one in a million.

i highly encourage everyone to experience the sail and stay. our captain was the owner of the resort Yannis (what we soon learned that he truly is "the most interesting man in the world"). the trip was all about us and our needs. We wanted to experience quiet remote coves and beaches and thats what we received. the day starts with a wonderful breakfast created by Eva, followed by some relaxing sailing while laying on the front of the Santa Maria. Some swimming in what could be the clearest water we had ever seen, followed by a perfect greek lunch. Some interesting conversation, laughter and drinks all afternoon all the while touring and seeing some beautiful beaches, private coves and spectacular scenery. Yannis was wonderful to travel with and truly cared about you and your significant other as finding your true love was the most important thing to him. After touring you dock at one of the smallest remote islands and go ashore to have authentic Greek cuisines and what was the best octopus and calamari we had ever had. Sleeping on the boat was amazing and relaxing. The trip continued with more of the same and whether it was eating fresh sea urchin caught by Yannis, lounging on the front of the boat or sharing a bottle of wine was beyond anything we could have ever imagined. On the way back to Santorini on the last night of the sail we experience what was one of the most beautiful sunsets from the front of the boat in the calmest of waters.

Once back at the resort we had ample time to rent an atv and tour the island, wander through the shopping areas and generally just relax at a resort that you truly feel at piece with. It will always be a trip to remember and we will be definitely be going back to Petra Honeymoon Villas soon to experience it again and to create a revolution with the owner Yannis!!

My husband surprised me with a trip to Santorini and stayed for 3 nights at Honemoon Petras Villas. I have been to alot of boutique hotels but none of this stature. We had the most amazing views and would watch the sunset everyday. We loved everyone from Kyrios Giannis the owner to his concierge, waitress and bartender. Thanks for an amazing experience

Regards,
Eleni and Thanasi.
