Just came back from Santorini last week. It has been a smart choice to stay at Imerovigli, and indeed a lucky one to have got the last minute deal from Alexander Villas. Despite worrying about some bad reviews of the hotel, I'm glad that I've given it a try. Our stay eventually turned out to be the most pleasant one among all our trips in Europe.
I've noted that some people have complained about the difficulty in finding the reception of Alexander Villas. Well my advise is, ask the hotel for a pick up service as I did. For 10 Euros you really save all the hassles, plus they help carrying your luggages !
Upon arriving, the manager carried our luggages and escorted us to our room. We were allocated a room with an infinity pool right in front, just like a private pool to us! Also we were given a bottle of complimentary champagne. We love our room so much that we rather spent most of our afternoons by the pool, overlooking the jaw-dropped stunning views of the volcano and cliffs. If it wasn't so cold at night, we would have spent our time chilling at the patio every night. Seriously we'll never get bored of the views, they're simply amazing!
The hotel staffs are friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel is good, with convenient stores, restaurants and car rental companies just nearby, and it's only 15minutes walk to Thira. If you happened to stay here, try Bella Thira restaurant just around the corner, the food is nice and reasonably priced. There is a super friendly waitress who always take care of her customers with a nice smile no matter how busy she is.
As for the hotel, of course there are some tiny flaws such as the coffee and tea served in the breakfast were not hot enough, hot water supply in the shower was not so constant and the water of the pool can be too cold even during sunny and warm afternoon. However these are just some recommendations for improvement as they don't bother me much ! Overall we enjoyed our stay. Our stay in Alexander Villas has indeed made our trip to Santorini a memorable holiday and we wished we have stayed longer !
