We arrived at the airport at three o'clock in the morning. All through our relatively short stay with the Livadaros family, they walked - and drove - that extra mile for us, day or night. Nice enough rooms, friendly prices, exeptional service. Thank you!

Staying at the Livadaros has been one of my top places to stay since travelling. The family that run the business are so lovely, they helped us getting to places, picking us up and directing us in the right direction to start our trip in Thira! Great pool to relax in, good breakfast to start your day and just close enough to Thira, you can walk. This place is affordable and ideal!

We will see you next year!

This hotel was amazing such a cute little place with a great pool and great staff. Well worth the cost to stay there. My ttravel friend and i enjoyed free rides to and from the port, air conditioning, a fridge, clean sheets and towels everyday, breakfast brought to the room, belcony etc. the location was great for me because I like being outside of the main cities but still close enough to walk to them. We walked to Fira in about 15 min. And we rented an awesome quad for a few days for only 20€ a day to see Oia and the rest of the island which was well worth it. The hotels central location on the island meant we could drive back to the hotel in a very short period of time to grab cold drinks or shower or cool off in the pool before heading out to explore the island somemofe. Fira at night is awesome. This hotel is small and set up in a house like setting which is unique. The owners live in a house nearby and are always around to help and answer questions. Even drove us to the port at midnight for our 1 am ferry which we really appreciated. Overall a great experience and place to stay.

I really wanted to like this place. It was probably a bad idea to visit in the winter but I figured why not! I ended up being the only guest there. The owners were so kind. But the room felt off. There was a fainting, lingering scent of mildew. The Internet only worked in a certain corner of the room. The view however, was outstanding. My room had its own balcony. The owners provide transport to and from the airport.

Good solution for those that do not care about luxury. The rooms are simple but with the basic amenities (A/C, fridge, TV). Useful free parking area. You need a car or a bike because the pension is situated far from the popular beaches and Fira town. The swimming pool is disproportionately good. I don't know if there is breakfast (in fact I didn't even asked) but there is a common refrigerator in the kitchen which is locked(!) after the breakfast time.

Pros:
-we were picked up from the port even at 1am
-nice pool area, lots of lounge chairs
-affordable tavernas nearby
-5 minute walk to a bus stop to get to the beaches and oia, about 20 minute walk to thira
-had a minifridge, kitchen sink and some plates and utensils, we were able to prepare our own breakfasts

Cons:
-sheets were stained, and threadbare
-the first room smelt like a moldy basement, ceilings only 6' (watch out, tall people)
-shower didnt drain properly, old shower curtains covered in mold, no towel to use as bathmat
-we were asked to switch rooms, the second room was dusty, dog hair everywhere, creepy dolls and stuffed animals on the wall, we were given a twin bed and an uncomfortable cot
-second room had a shared bathroom, which was better than the individual bathroom, but still had a serious mold/mildew problem in the shower
-no obvious reception area, sometimes difficult to find the owners

overall, we were lucky to have the pool and went swimming to avoid showering as much as possible, wouldn't recommend!

Room Tip: avoid rooms on the first level, maybe it won't smell like a moldy basement....

Located within walking distance to Fira (still 20 or 30 mins though) the pension has a really nice pool and our double room was clean and airy with a balcony. We had breakfast one morning which really wasn't worth the extra cost. The main issues we had were with the owner. We were picked up from the port but when we arrived at the property were left waiting for some time before we were taken to our room. This was a very rushed process with nothing said about maps, internet etc and our passports taken (presuming they'd just be photocopied and returned, but not until check out). On our check out day we were asked to leave the room earlier than the described 12 noon check out as they had to clean (knock on door at 11.25 saying we had to leave the room at 11.30). We also booked the drop off at the port for the afternoon and had to wait for over an hour after the meeting time to leave. The way the place is set up it's also very hard to find them as there's no real reception. Overall the actual place is nice but we left with mixed feelings.
