Great place, great location, great staff and views to take your breath away. I loved every second here. We did go to Oia and Fira of an evening but when you have the perfect view from your own private balcony you might as well order food in, drink wine and watch the sun go down on paradise..

First of all, I have to say that, as beautiful as all the pictures are, they don't do the place justice! The hotel is situated much higher than we expected and the views are absolutely spectacular. Forget about going to Oia for the sunset; the best sunsets are right off your balcony. As others have said, the staff is very accomodating and friendly. They will spend time with you, giving tips and answering your questions. The grounds of the hotel are immaculately clean and well-maintained. Imerovigli is situated away from the tourists areas, so it's more quiet and private, yet there are excellent restaurants within walking distance. I would highly recommned this hotel!

A-MAZ-ING! I would most definitely stay here again! The whole experience was perfect from beginning to end. Our room was large and had a breathtaking view from the balcony. The staff were amazing. They were very helpful, efficient and spoke good English. They were the perfect balance of professional and personal. Nothing was too much to ask- they even organized for our clothes to be washed. The pool area was great! I fully recommend this hotel

Multiple Trip Advisor award winner and deservedly so. Joanna, the owner/manager, Aliki, and Eddie head the small, gracious, friendly, and extremely efficient staff. These people are not hotel managers; they are >innkeepers< in the best traditional European sense of being welcomers to the world. They are not just providing services (which they do magnificently). They are part of the culture. All rooms/suites have sunset chairs & table balcony views of the volcanic circle in the Aegean (the Caldera). Order up some wine, late dinner, appetizers or desserts from the modest but delicious variety of menu items, delivered promptly to your balcony... and watch the sun ignite a breathtaking red and bronze corona over the ancient volcanic mountains while it gently sinks into the seemingly endless Aegean Sea. Only ten rooms (we got to see three of them -- each eclectically, tastefully, and imaginatively decorated) so there is never a crowd. This reconstructed winery is built into a mountain, so the climb from the entrance gate and "Room #1" above to the gorgeous pool and bar area below is a steep one. We are in our 60s and not athletic... we took it slow up and down and we were fine. (Eddie helped w/ luggage). Only disadvantage is that there is no ATM in the entire town -- nearest one is 1/2 hr walk and public transportation in the small isolated town is not more than adequate. The hotel and the very good restaurants in town takes cc's but the convenience store at the end of the driveway does not and either do the airport/seaport vans you will need. If you know that in advance you will be fine... to say nothing of impressed, thrilled and overwhelmed. LOVED IT.

From the moment that my wife and I stepped foot in this hotel, everything was taken care for us. From Eddie who helped us with all our luggage to the reception area and room and Aliki welcome us to the hotel, we knew we would have a great 3 nights stay here and we were not disappointed. The hotel is located in the quite area in Imerovigli which is away from the loud and touristy town of Fira but still close enough to visit for night lives. Our room and every room I can see have a great view to the sunset (see our pictures). The room were large and clean with a small kitchen, great bed and shower. We have access to beach towel for our sailing trip, a laptop for our use when we need to connect to outside world, a beautiful swimming pool and music to relax to and lounge chairs that look out to the sea. Every needs and questions we have were fulfilled by Aliki, Joanna, Eddie or other staffs. And don't forget to try their very reasonable price breakfast serve to you either outside your room in the terrace or balcony or at the table with the perfect view near the reception area. Also, when we had an issue with the reservation for our sailing trip, Aliki helped us contact the sailing company and solve the whole thing. That's personal touch that helped us relax throughout our stay. When we have to leave, which we really don't want to;), Eddie help us with our bags and wait with us for the transfer to the airport with a smile. From start to finish, there is not a single bad experience I have with this hotel and I'll recommend it to anyone who wants a relaxing stay in Santorini and we'll definitely stay here again next time. Almost forget to mention, the sunset view from this hotel is the best we have on the island compare to when we're in Fira or Oia!

My girlfriend and I stayed for 4 nights, a great place. The hotel was located in Imerovigli which is a small town between Fira and Oia, it was the perfect location as it was not as busy as Oia or Fira however located in short driving distance from both. The views from the room were fantastic and sunsets spectacular. The owner of the hotel was very helpful and extremely friendly. The room was excellent and decorated in traditional greek style. Another advantage of the hotel was the pool area.
Would highly recommend not only the hotel but also the area that it is located in.

Room Tip: All rooms have a great view
