Afroessa Hotel
Ranked #8 of 51 Hotels in Imerovigli
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 August 2010

The Afroessa was fantastic. Beautiful and very friendly service, great pool and just a perfect setting. The stff was super friendly and very helpful and we generally had a beautiful time. Imerovigli is just out of town enough to be quiet but there is enough to do right around it in terms of restaurants and little shops. If you stay in imerovigli you should definitely rent a car if you want to go anywhere - the buses never run on schedule and you have to switch to go anywhere in fira (sort of a pain). Other than that Santorini is pure heaven and the Afroessa completes the picture!

We stayed here for 6 nights after spending 4 nights in Akrotiri in an equally great hotel (Apanemo), so our expectations were high. We were not disappointed with this quaint little find; it was clean with a personal touch, and had amazing views from the terrace/balcony. The swimming pool area was wonderful and quiet, yet the location was perfect to access the restaurants in Thira. Highly recommended.

We booked this hotel on the write ups we read.

We arrived via bus from the port which was an experience in its self due to the amazing views up to the hotel.
We were greeted by the hotel greek guy who shook our hands and took our baggage.

We arrived at the hotel which was empty, due to arriving in June. It was perfect. Imerovigli was the best place to stay in due to the best sunsets and most luxury hotels.. We are really glad we booked this hotel and this area... You will not regret this!.
The hotel was very comfortable, had a terrace with views to die for, and very comfortable bed.
The swimming pool was a great addition and we jumped into it as soon as we arrived... We were the only ones at the hotel for one day and there were few people there on our second day.

The owner of the hotel was not really interested in our stay or if we were comfortable but this was not an issue.

We would strongly recommend this hotel as it was much cheaper than the other ones that were perhaps a little more luxurious but double the price.

This is a good place to stay for a few nights.

What could I say that hasn't already been said? This is one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever stayed at, with a view that rivals any on the island. I looked at 40 or so hotels and apartments before staying at Afroessa, and was not disappointed. The photos on the website really can't do the hotel justice, as arriving there in person and entering the top level of the hotel will honestly take your breath away. Ioanna has truly created one of the loveliest hotel atmospheres on the island, and has put together the friendliest hotel team I've ever met.

I had planned to propose to my girlfriend at the hotel (again, forget the sunsets and tourist crowds at Oia-- the view from the Afroessa pool is just as good!), and the team of Ioanna, Aliki and Amalia did everything they could to ensure the answer was a resounding "Yes!". As luck would have it, Amalia is a wedding planner (her company is Poema Weddings and Special Events, www.poemaweddings.com), and she made sure everything at the hotel was perfect for our special night. While my girlfriend and I were having an unforgettable dinner at La Maison (a recommendation from Aliki-- do not question any of her recommendations, as she is always right about the best places to eat on the island, and will help you avoid the tourist traps!), the staff set up a flower bouquet and chilled champagne on our balcony, along with hundreds of flower petals, candles and other goodies in our room (they even put a cake in the fridge!). I proposed right there on the balcony on sunset, and my girlfriend was truly overwhelmed by it all, and of course...she said "YES"!

I can't wait to get back to this hotel some day, and I have already recommended it to everyone I know. Imerovigli is the perfect location in Santorini, and gives you the best the island has to offer (central location, easy to get to Oia or Fira, non-commercial, quiet, etc.). Do not stay in Fira, as it offers nothing but a headache, and no privacy at all. I have no doubt Afroessa should be a candidate on everyone's hotel list. I can't say enough about Afroessa and Ioanna, Aliki and Amalia, and will never forget my experience there.

My husband and I stayed in on our european honeymoon for 4 nights early June 2010.

When we arrived the host/ receptionist sat us down and recommended different places to eat and visit around the island which was very helpful. We had mentioned it was our honeymoon and we got upgraded from a room to a 1 bed apartment which was lovely. The cave got a bit humid with the aircon on, but it was still very comfortable and the bed was surprisingly comfy. We tried to order a few glasses of wine one night when we were there and got sent a complimentary bottle of local wine to enjoy.

The views were amazing, we hired a car and drove around the island (not for the faint hearted!) and we thought the village of Imervegli was the best location, very quite, not too touristy, very high up with great views but still walking distance to Fira.

In comparision to some of the places nearby at much higher cost, this place was excellent value and we would highly recommend it to those want a nice place to stay and don't want to be ripped off. I did heaps of research on Santorini hotels and I don't think we could have chose better. Enjoy!

It would be hard to find a better view, and this small hotel had great charm. The staff was very helpful in recommending good restaurants and arranging transport and activities. Our room was simple, but comfortable and very clean. The pool was the perfect temperature for cooling off on a hot day. Sunsets from the porch of our room were indescribably beautiful. Santorini is a wonderful island, and I can't wait to return! I will definitely stay here again.

We arrived there by taxi and found Eddy waiting for us, ready to help us with our luggages and walk us to the hotel. When we arrived at the hotel we were immediately hooked. The view was simply beautiful.

We were then taken to our room...room #5. The location was simply perfect. The sun set directly into our small veranda.

The hotel is also located just a short walk (20 minutes) from Fira and just a short drive from Oia.

In short, everything was simply perfect about this hotel...be it location, be it views or be it friendliness of staff...we really couldn't ask for anything else!
