“Beautiful view, great location and wonderful owners”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2011

We stayed at Prekas apartments for three nights and enjoyed every minute. The apartments are surprisingly big, and they all have a terrace or balcony facing the beautiful caldera. The sunset from here is just amazing!. The bath and kitchen might not be top quality, but we couldn't have asked for a better location or better service. Imerovigli is a very quiet and very beautiful town, and still it's only half an hour walk from the more touristy Fira. The owner, Nikos, gave us a very warm welcome and both he and his son offered us a unique service. We couldn't have asked for more and will recommend this place to anyone going to Santorini, looking for a quiet and peaceful stay.

Even though the walls are a little damp and musty, we are greatly enjoying our 5 nights here....2nd last night tonight, in fact. The staff are characters and very polite and helpful. I read reviews before I stayed here, complaining about the pool being cold and too deep for kids, but who in their right mind would travel to the edge of a cliff with young children, anyway?? Cold is very refreshing in the heat, and the pool is no colder than the ocean! Don't come expecting 5 star luxury, especially in the bathroom, but the whole experience has been just what I expected and more....; beds are firm, as usual in Europe but the pillows are fabulous and the sunsets on the balcony after cooking a simple dinner for yourself are just perfect....

My girlfriend and I went to Ios and Santorini last week. We booked our stay at Prekas directly over the internet the day before we arrived. We had the premium studio, which is great as it overlooks the pool and has a remarkable caldera view. It was great to have a mini kitchen as we made lots of breakfasts and lunches ourselves while enjoying the view. In fact, we liked the sunset experience from our little balcony even better than the one we saw in Oia as it was more relaxing and the view was comparable. We fell in love with Nescafe Frappe, and the housekeeper taught us how to make it and even made it for us. The owner gave us a bottle of wine to enjoy the sunset. One downside was the shower -- no curtain and you had to hold the faucet above you.

This is truly the best holiday my fiance and I have been on. The weather, the island, the food and the people are all so welcoming. The friendly owner and his son at Prekas Apartments ensure everything goes like a dream. These lovely rooms overlook the best view you can ever hope to experience. For me there is nothing to dislike about the accommodation or the Island of Santorini. I highly recommend the local Visanto, Fava and stuffed vine leaves. We love this location and accommodation so much we have been twice and are booking already to go next year.

Really good location for sunset views. Rooms very traditional. No water pressure in shower. Pool area fantastic. Service good - a load of washing done and folded complimentary.

We stayed at Prekas on a self catering basis. The owners (father and son) are nice friendly characters. Though they very kindly offered us a brilliant discount on a 4 person apartment, as it was the only one still available, we were still disappointed with the accommodation on arrival at Prekas.

We found the apartment to be damp smelling and the bed linen we felt was damp to the touch. We mentioned this and were advised that this is the nature of accommodation built into the rock (which we couldn't argue with really). We got over this by having a de-humidifier running pretty much constantly and we bought a scented candle to mask the smell. We also chose to stay in the twin room rather than the double as the double was right at the back of the apartment and felt more damp.

Luxury accommodation nearby would have been out of our price range and so we were thankful for the location and amazing views. Overall we had a great time at Prekas Apartments but would advise that the accommodation is basic so just be prepared for that. We didn't have hot water running in the kitchen and had to boil kettles to wash the dishes and the toilet/shower room was pretty ropey - maybe bad drains?! Not sure.

We were impressed that even though we were self catering there was daily service to clean the apartment and replenish towels etc (something we're not used to when we self cater so a nice surprise). There was also free Wi-Fi (you have to be on the terrace for it to work but this goes for most of the hotels around there I think). The other people staying at Prekas were all friendly and we met a very nice family who were in the neighbouring apartment which also made it a nice stay. (Hello G & M if you're reading this!)

A lot could be done to spruce up the apartments and I think it would be worthwhile for the owners to do this. In a nutshell, we'd recommend with the caveat expect basic and you won't be disappointed.

A wonderfully placed small apartment complex (12); all apts have a terrace with a magnificent view/excellent sunsets - a good place to breakfast too. The pool is bigger than pictured and one depth (2m) so must need know how to swim. Getting to the apts is a bit of work but the very friendly staff helps with the transport of luggage up and down the many stairs. It's a short (10 min) but beautiful walk along the cliffs into the center of Imerovigli where they have several outstanding restaurants. Only a short bus ride which you can catch just above the apt will take you to Fira if you don't rent a car. I'd reccommend this place and will to any and everyone!
