“Our particular room was dated!”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

We actually booked a 7 night stay at another local hotel but due to a force majeure ended up spending our first night in a suite at Andromeda with an outdoor jacuzzi. Indeed, the outdoor space was great - fabulous view, great jacuzzi, 2 sun loungers and a table and 2 chairs. Plus it had a pergola which provided some privacy from anyone gawking from above. That was all fine.

However, I did find the interior of the room/suite somewhat a little underwhelming. Granted, it was spacious and designed in typical Greek style with little windows and vaulted roof but in general its decor was dated. Our room is featured on the website and all I can say is that it certainly has been glossed up a bit. The room had all the amenities you needed (robes, slippers, tv, phone, hairdrier, ironing board etc).The bathroom was definitely a relic from the 1980s and dark; the kitchenette did nothing to make me actually want to use it; the room in general needed quite a bit of airing; the overall decor and furnishings were heavy and dated. The soggy and stained room information file on the coffee table did not impress! Put it this way, I was happy to know that the following morning we would be moving to our originally chosen accommodation which, I have to add, certainly did not disappoint and highlighted even more how much in need the particular suite we stayed in at Andromeda needs a bit of updating.
I cannot comment on any of the facilities or staff etc at Andromeda as we did not stay that long. Our breakfast was provided the following morning by the establishment we had originally booked with.
If you want to know the name of the other place we stayed at which I can highly recommend, feel free to contact me.

An extremely polite and welcoming staff, the welcome drink to kick things off being just a beginning, are always there to attend to your needs. The facility is amazing for its views, though not as much for its functionality. Your calf muscles will be sufficiently stimulated, almost as much as your eyes, when you climb all those steps to the balcony of your cliff-side room( you do not have to ask for a room with a view, they all have it).
The Villas also have an under-stated restaurant, quietly efficient, although your choice may not be much. But your man Panos will persuade the chef to cook up a made to order dish for you.
One warning, the stunning view of the Sea can be a bit monotonous as days pass by;so a three day stay will be ideal!

Room Tip: If you are fit enough, chose a room at the top level-though it does not matter that much. We stayed...

Amazing views from all over the hotel rooms is what we noticed. Our room was a suite and had a private pool with a jaccuzzie. Santorini perhaps , would not be as beautiful if i had not stayed here.
We shall almost definitely go to Andromeda Villas again.

Beautiful hotel with a fantastic view.
The hotel i situated at the ridge of the Caldera with a perfect view over the sea, the islands and not least perfect sunset every day.
The service is in top, with comfortable sun beds around the pool, a nice pool bar with constant service during the day.
The barmen comes around with free fruit, cold water etc.

The rooms are ok, but the pictures on the hotel webside do not tell the true story of the size of the terrace/Balconny.

The hotel is definitely for persons in good walking conditions. Lots of uneven steps.

But all in all: Perfect.

This hotel was incredible, I don't know about the regular rooms, but we had a spa suite that was fabolous. The spa was pure luxury and our balcony was very spacious and private.
The pool area was amazing, with beautiful lounging areas and a view to die for! Such a fabulous hotel!

We had a wonderful week here in May. Tula and Lydia (the reception staff) met us off the bus and took our cases while we went downstairs for juice. Lots of stairs but we knew that, two lifts, the hotel is lovely, so clean and has the most amazing views with seating all over.
We had a fab apartment with two bedrooms and a large balcony with the most amazing view! The staff were all so friendly, welcoming and there when you needed them. Loved the pool (unheated) but you need a dip when it's so hot there, the restaurant was lovely, we ate there first night outside under the stars, magical. Waiters were so attentive, nothing too much trouble.
Had pizza by the pool one lunchtime, that was divine. Loved everything about the hotel and the staff, thanks to you all and especially Vali who cleaned our room and kept washing up for us although I told her not to!
Bus stops 5 mins walk and it's 1.60 euros to go anywhere.

We chose this hotel in which to celebrate our first wedding anniversary, strongly influenced by other reviews on Trip Advisor (and others).
At first the hotel was just as described and the room appeared initially attractive.
In reality, the room (#72) was a shocker. It seemed to have been very recently finished - lacking any sort of wall decoration with only one chair in a double room - and contained a jacuzzi which was open-plan with the bedroom. A vertical steel frame around the jacuzzi access was inadequately fixed and moved when touched: The "on" switch was, incredibly, placed in the far corner of the jacuzzi and impossible to access without getting wet. The outside window had an ineffective latch that could only be reached over the water at full stretch (see photo). The latch to the entrance door did not close properly.
The problem with having the jacuzzi in the room meant that everywhere smelled strongly of chlorine - not good if, like my wife, you suffer from asthma - and also the window and walls streamed with condensation, especially overnight when the door was closed. The jacuzzi with two people in it flooded over on to the bedroom floor, our suitcase and clothes.
The ineffective latches on door and window became a major problem on our last night at Andromeda Villas when an intruder attempted to break-in to the room. At about 01:00am, someone rattled the window and opened it. When they saw they would have to cross the jacuzzi to enter they then tried the door, which opened on pushing. At this stage my wife let out a multi-decibel shout and the half-deafened intruder ran away.
Because it was dark we could not give a good description of the intruder and therefore felt there was little point in calling Reception or the Police at that time of night.
When checking out we explained these events to Reception, who offered to get Maintenance to fix the latches. We feel much more needs to be done to improve room security.

Room Tip: If you suffer from asthma and do not like the damp, avoid room 72 at all costs
