“Best hotel ever”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 via mobile

We are on our honeymoon and this place was unbelievably amazing. From the service to the food being delivered to us every morning on a time we requested I highly recommend this hotel to everyone. Julia at reception was very kind and recommend us yummy places to eat at. I can't wait to go back. Also our balcony was just incredible. We watched the sunset every night.

Better than the pictures...that was the first thought that came to my mind when we went to our room. The suite was huge, clean and we had two balconies. The view was unreal.
The staff are amazing and we always friendly and helpful, answering all our questions about Santorini and suggesting places to go and eat.
Breakfast was delivered to our room every morning and the suite was cleaned every day.
Only downside was the bathroom, but this is not shocking as the plumbing is not amazing on the island.

My boyfriend and I stayed 6 nights at Iliovasillema Suites between 17th – 23rd July 2013. We stayed in room 9 with an outdoor Jacuzzi. THE VIEW - The first thing to mention about the hotel is that the views are spectacular throughout the day. The sunsets definitely live up to the hype and completely transform the horizon. I think the view is unbeaten by all other spots we visited on the island, so to have it on your doorstep every morning was incredible. This is one of the main reasons people come to Santorini and I think Iliovasillema (which means sunset in Greek!) completely exceeded our expectations on this front. THE HOTEL & STAFF – This is a really warm, friendly, beautiful hotel. All of the staff were great. They were always smiling and came across as genuinely happy to be there helping to make our stay enjoyable. The wifi is better in some places than others (it didn’t really work in our room) but it’s enough for browsing the essentials like facebook and the news by the pool. Bear in mind that it can get pretty windy in Imerovigli (and the rest of the island) so bring a jumper for watching the sunsets and going out in the evenings. THE ROOM – Room 9 was right by the pool but the hotel is so quiet and peaceful that this didn’t affect our privacy at all. I imagine that the rooms lower down have a lot more privacy but as I said this wasn’t a problem for us. The unheated Jacuzzi was an amazing way to cool down in the heat and definitely recommended. You’ll also get a bit more balcony space if you have one too. However all rooms have the amazing view and that’s all that really counts! THE FOOD – The breakfast is served on your balcony each morning which we loved. It was so relaxed. It’s recommended that you let reception know what time you want it the night before and they serve this until 11am. The breakfast includes pastries (very tasty), ham and cheese toasties (which weren’t really my thing first thing in the morning), fruit, greek yoghurt and bread rolls with a selection of jams/honey. I bought some cereal from the local shop to add to the yoghurt with some honey for a bit of variation. The light meals they offer throughout the day are nice although don’t compare to any of the restaurants we ate at (though that’s a bit too much to expect!). The portions were really big so you won’t go hungry there. I particularly enjoyed the pesto spaghetti. THE LOCAL AREA – Imerovigli was definitely the best choice for us. Close enough to the busy hubs on the island but very chilled out and quiet when you wanted to escape them. There is a little ‘Mini Market’ two minutes’ walk from the hotel which has a good selection of food and drinks. There are some really good places to eat less than a 10 minute walkaway – Anogi, Kapari Wine Restaurant (right next door) and Imerovigli Taverna would be our top recommendations. The latter was recommended to us by the reception and had a very authentic feel. The food was incredible too. Also in Imerovigli is Skaros Rock (right in front of the hotel). If you have the stamina for the steps down and (more importantly) up again then it’s a great climb. Obviously wear sensible shoes and don’t take small children as it’s pretty dangerous in places. The view is well worth it though. THE REST OF THE ISLAND – Other places to eat; Metaxi Mas (family-run restaurant that is very popular despite it is small size and remote location. People keep coming because the food is very good and they are incredibly generous with what they give you. Get a taxi there!) and Blue Volcano in Fira. Try and book a boat trip to the caldera if you can. We spent an amazing half-day with Spiridakos who are a great option with plenty of opportunity to swim and snorkel. CONCLUSION – We had an amazing week. We can’t recommend this hotel enough and especially the surrounding area.

When we left the hotel after 4 days, we felt that we were leaving our friends not the hotel staff. They were friendly, knowledgeable, and courteous. They provided phenomenal suggestions on places to eat, and areas to visit. We received complementary breakfast in our room every morning which was a great treat! Finally the view was amazing, simply breath taking..

Let me start by saying a big thank you to the amazing staff at this small gem - they truly made an effort to ensure we had a great stay!
There is something truly remarkable about waking up to the spectacular caldera view each morning, and then enjoy it while have a great breakfast on the terrasse. We had 6 great days at this wonderful little hotel in imerovigli. It goes without saying that it is a place you come for the view and the santorini sunset experience, but good rooms (we had a comfortable and charming junior suite) and great service makes all the difference. Can warmly recommend this as a getaway spot!

My reaction when seeing our room (16) and view for our 3 day 25th Anniversary celebration was WOW, WOW, WOW this view is ridiculous and WOW again. The staff was professional and super friendly. Having breakfast delivered to our terrace every morning overlooking the caldera was simply amazing. The icing on our cake for our stay was having the staff locate someone to renew our vows again on our terrace at sunset. Very Romantic! Would stay there again in a heartbeat also the best sunset on the whole island. 5 stars from us

We stayed only 4 nights, but it was enough to realize about what is one of the best Hotels I've ever been (and I can say that after travelling around the 5 continents during the last 15 years ...):
. Location: incredible views
. Description: perfectly quiet
. Service: excellent. The Manager called us before our departure to ask if we needed transport from the airport and waited awake until our arrival at 04.00 am

Then, the staff (coffe boy & cleaning girl) also very kind and always there in case we needed someting.

Would recommend it strongly to couples that are looking for tranquility and full relax.

Room Tip: We stayed at room 9 and it was very good !
