The view from terrace of the caldera was absolutely beautiful. The best view on whole island. Nice location slightly removed from Fira but easy to walk or drive and park. The hotel staff were excellent. The hotel is on a hill and it is a steep walk to get to hotel and to your room. We stayed in the jacuzzi suite with two bedrooms. The suite had an upper level terrace with reclining chairs and a table large enough for six. My major problem with hotel was that I am 6" 1" and some of the doorways were only 6' high and I kept hitting my head. Also one of the bedrooms had a smaller bed that was cramped for 2. The jacuzzi was nice, but since it was not heated we were only able to get our legs wet. Also, the timer for jets stopped every 5 minutes. They delivered breakfast to our room when we called in morning. They helped with luggage coming and going which you need due to steep hill and steps. There are plenty of rent a car agencies nearby with low prices. I would stay at this hotel again and hope that it is not long before I have opportunity to return to Santorini.

First of all, this is a great small hotel. I think it has about 25 rooms. Many of the rooms are actually caves dug into the side of the cliff. Although a cave does not typically conjure up a pretty picture, these caves have plastered walls and very nice interior finishes. The cave we stayed in was a superior double. It included a queen size bed, a nice bath, a large living room with an efficiency kitchen , TV, and a couple of couches. Plus, the outside porch/balcony area included a table for breakfast and a spectacular view of the volcanic caldera.

There is also a nice small pool with an adjoining bar. The hotel has multiple levels as it hugs the cliff face. We talked to the manager, Andreas, and learned that several of the "caves" are actually several hundred years old. Some caves are very large with full kitchens and a couple of bedrooms.

Stayed: May 2008

Staying in Imerovigli rather than touristy Fira is the way to go. Andreas and his staff are helpful and personable. Our 4 person villa was large with terrific views. The beds were very firm like sleeping on a rock and the bathrooms seem unfinished like taking a shower in a cave with a shower curtain with the floor getting wet all the time and my 6 foot tall husband in a crouch position. But the tranquillity made it all worth it. Internet was free on the patio.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I would like to thank for your comments, because that makes us better,
In order to avoid any misunderstandings and misleading comments i would like to make a notice on your mentioned phrase of the "Unfinished" bathroom? Please be kind to explain to the hotel and the other guests what do you mean by unfinished?
Adding to my question i am posting some photos of the bathroom and the room

Yours sincerely
Hotel Sunny Villas

Stayed for 2 night- May 31 and June 1,2008

1. Location is fabolous- opposite a very good hiking spot- Skaros. The view from the top of the Skaros hill is
spectacular. I did a morning hike at 6am and the view was amazing. The view of the sunset is amazing from the room
balcony. The view is best from the bar.

2. Breakfast was ok- did the job. Very small in portion though.

3. Santorini water is not good- so try using mineral water.

4. Toilet size is small.

6. Hotel staff is good and very helpful. Andreas in particular was very helpful in giving help island tips and
booking taxis to airport and locally. His hospitability was simply awesome.

7. Big cave size room- with 2 beds.

8. Bed was comfortable- extra pillows can be found in the closet.

9. Taxi ride to airport costed me 15 Euro- Andreas booked it- very reasonable.

10. AC worked great.

11. Taxi rides in Santorini is fixed- so ask the price of travel from the taxi driver before hand.

12. Santorini is a beautiful island- black sand beach is awesome. Santorini wines are on the sweet side.
Try living in Immerovigli and at Sunny vilas- wont regret it. I paid $170 for one night for a cave room using Orbitz.

Just had our second stay at Sunny Villas and it was as great as the first time in May 2006. Andreas was his usual sunny self giving tips on where to eat and being friendly with everyone. The rooms are lovely and quaint in typical greek furnishings, BUT what you love are the beautiful views of the volcano and sunsets and the peace, quiet and atmosphere, that this side of the island has to offer. If you just want to laze around and soak up the sun its a great spot to do it the hotel has a pool and small bar area and friendly staff like Danny & Timmy to look after you. They do a great breakfast served on your terrace or in your room. Its an easy walk into Fira and loads of nightlife and places to eat, though its hard to beat Skaros Tavern along the Fira cliff path. We had lovely meals in Kapari tavern, Naoussa and also Saltsa all in Fira, and really great Pasta in Lotza Tavern in Oia. Anyone wanting to ask anything feel free to get in touch have a great stay. Lovely place to chill :)

Found Sunny Villas to be the Best Accomodations of our Vacation by far. Andreas was very Helpful. We were two couples who had seperate rooms quite a distance apart. He offered us a Suite with Two bedrooms, two baths and Jacuzze for same price. Great Deal. He had a Boy (Who was Eager) to carry our luggage to the rooms and also to the car when we left. The views of the Caldera from our Veranda were Excellent. Breakfast Was brought to your Veranda every morning with a simple phone call. He even had breakfast brought to us after normal hours one morning when we slept in!! Without even a comment. Just a Great Place with very Hospitable Managers. Will definetly stay again when I visit Santorini.

Everyone is completely right about this- Hotel Sunny Villas couldn't be lovelier. All the little hotels in Imerovigli seem absolutely lovely- but Hotel Sunny Villas must be the best. I think Imerovigli is a hidden gem- Of course oia and Fira have more restaurants and shops- but you are so close to Fira by way of the lovely little cliff walk from Hotel Sunny Villa, but it is quieter and more romantic. You can walk to Oia as well but it is a stroll. Make sure you hike to the top and over the little hill in front of the hotel- you will be rewarded- it is a view that there are no pictures of. I wish I could go back to Hotel Sunny Villa right now!
