“Killer views from the balcony, the pool over looking the sea is to die for!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2009

Pros: Andreas is SO helpful. Great service. He recommended some FANTASTIC places to get some GOOD Greek food. Every room comes with a balcony facing the water. The views are breathtaking. You don’t have to go anywhere or pay for a view, just go to your balcony. The pool is also great. Imeriovigli is also in my opinion the best place to stay. The free continental breakfast was awesome.

Cons:
Our water stopped in the middle of the night. Andreas had to turn it back on. We had a studio and the room was smaller then expected. The AC didn’t really work and our sheets were not replaced daily. The bed was also small.

Overall, it was an average stay, but the views, pool and Andreas made it worth it. I wish it was more comfortable. I probably wouldn’t return as there were some other places in Imeriovigli that looked nicer.

We just stayed for 4 nights and we stayed in the deluxe villa with the balcony (not the smaller upper units). Sunny Villas is in the quiet end of Imeroglivio, away from the cruise ship end of Fira, but still only a 20min walk along the pretty hillside laneways. The rooms were stunningly individually decorated. The shower was big as was the bathroom, the staff cleaned up inside and outside on our balcony everyday. The staff were very good at English and directed us to the best spots on the island eg beaches etc. The pool was cute and friendly around the pool bar. Our balcony view was postcard views and breathtaking, especially morning and evening sunsets. This is by far the best location for sunsets. It was so romantic for my wife and I. We hired a $10/day quad bike which was so much fun to go to Oia for the sunset by the poolbar. 10/10 for Sunny Villas.

This hotel has an ideal location to see the amazing sunsets. Sitting on the edge of the caldera allows guests a perfect spot overlooking "the Rock" and Oia. The staff running the hotel, Mikali, Andreas and Timmy, as well as the morning houseman are likely the hardest working people I have ever met. They are always on the run, trying to deliver exceptional service. Our room slept four and had a mini-fridge and a coffee maker. Our friends had other rooms with similar amenities. Our shower was tiled in small stones with an open concept. I loved it. The pool and bar area was intimate and allowed people to flow nicely. Perhaps a larger pool deck would have been nice, but frankly not really necessary. We loved our stay. A word to the wise, however. Be ready for stairs in Imerovigli (ie be smart about your luggage). You can't stay at the edge of a precipice without an incline!

The room was cozy and clean and I could've lived on the balcony the entire time as the view was fantastic! The pool area was clean and comfortable, the location was central, and Andreas is great - extremely hard working, knowledgeable, friendly, and fun!

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Hotel Sunny Villas in Imerovigli in mid-April of 2009. We caught the very beginning of the season for Santorini since many of the rooms at Sunny Villas were still being worked on and completed for the high-season soon to come. There must have been only one room other than ours that was being used during our 2-night stay at the hotel.

Our room was pretty spacious with a queen-sized bed, couch, mini-fridge/kitchen area, bathroom, and small patio. The room got a lot of light which we thoroughly enjoyed while looking out over the island and sea. The bathroom had a cool design and ran just fine. Something we learned while staying there was that you're not allowed to throw toilet paper into the toilet; but this was not just at the hotel, but for all of Santorini. Our patio was quaint and included a couple chairs, a table, an umbrella, and a stone bench. It was on this patio that a nice breakfast was served to us each morning. It's great waking up and eating breakfast outside with such a calmness in the air and an unbelievable view.

Since we got to Santorini so early in the season, and right after Greek Easter, the pool at the hotel hadn't been up and running yet. Neither was the spa, but they both looked like they would be heaven during the summer months.

The hotel is located on the main pathway from Fira to Oia and it took us about 20 minutes to walk the pathway to the city center in Fira. The taxi ride to Fira takes about 5 minutes and costs 5 euros.

Overall I was very happy with Sunny Villas. The service was excellent, the rooms amazing, and the view unbeatable. The off-season price was fair and on the cheaper side of the more expensive caldera hotels. I would definitely recommend staying here if you're visiting Santorini before the crowds hit the island.

what a lovely view from our window, what great service from the guys who ran the place! however, we were very disappointed with the pool, especially as we had intended to stay at the hotel more than go out. one of our priorities was to honeymoon and stay at a hotel pool in santorini so that we wouldnt have to go to the yukky black or red beaches in santorini (santorinis only fault!). we get there to go to the pool and it is about the size of an average spa bath and there is no where to sunbake or lie down. there are about 4 deck chairs overlooking the view and the pool, a lounge area around the minute bar and the only place to lie down was the walkway around the pool which was less than a metre wide... horrible experience as you could never get one of the 4 chairs available, the umbrellas were up so you couldnt get a suntan, it was too squashy and we just gave up. we didnt enjoy our room, although it seemed modern enough, it was tiny, the aircon blew on our faces at night as it was positioned in front of the bed, and the bathroom... well i wouldnt call it a bathroom, it was a closet! the toilet was covered in water all the time as it was almost in the shower, the basin was at the foot of the toilet! it was revolting and way too expensive given we didnt really get what we thought we paid for. slightly misrepresented that is for sure... basically you are paying for a view you dont see all day because you cant spend time in your room as it is too small and you cant spend it at the pool cause there is no room there either, so a waste of money really.

  • Liked — the people who ran the place were very friendly and were great to us
  • Disliked — lack of proper pool facilities for the amount of people, bathroom was too small and no water!
