“Perfect 3 star accomodation”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

Stayed here a few weeks ago with friends and have zero negative things to say. Cheap as chips (20€ a night), friendly and helpful staff, aircon, breakfast available, free airport transfer and close to the bus for a ride into fira or wherever else you want to go. Would definitely stay again.

On a side note the photo of the pool is very deceptive and makes the pool look like a lake when it is only normal sized. Not like that matters just found it amusing.

Santorini is a beautiful island, with many different areas worth exploring (Perissa, Faros, Perivolos, Oia...).

With that being said, ideal location is pretty subjective, depending on what you prefer. You can settle into town where all the bars are, at the expense of higher prices, smaller rooms and common areas.

Conversely, you can stay a bit further away, and either walk or ride a rented ATV (15€ / day) which we found to be WAY more fun

Villa manos
PROS
- Gorgeous property with a big pool
- common area includes beach chairs, a bar, and a great view, so it's conducive to making new friends
- nice rooms with solid AC
- great value for Greek islands
- super clean

CONS
- 15 min walk to town with very narrow sidewalks, if any. ATVs are easier but dangerous, be careful and don't drink (we saw an accident)
- bar is slightly expensive for home made drinks
- female owner is "nice", but could not seem any less genuine. She's almost a cartoon character of hypocrisy. Nonetheless, she's helpful and accommodating, so no real complaint here!

We definitely suggest it!!

Villa Manos was fabulous from start to finish! Poppy and her daughter are amazing and took great care of us! They provide a pick up service from the close by airport and were so helpful with any questions or queries. The pool bar was fabulous, music brilliant and happy day prices on cocktails. I would most definitely recommend this place and return if I could . Thanks Poppy!!☺

Thank you to Poppy and the staff for helping us! We had a bit of a bumpy road getting to Santorini as we had cancelled last minute and then changed our mind. Poppy helped us find a last minute room in Santorini in July (if you've been to Santorini you'll know this is nearly impossible). She also picked us up from the port, helped us get good prices for the ATV and arranged for pick up to the ATV place as well as dropping us off at the airport. Villa Manos is beautiful, clean, excellent location and most of all has wonderful, helpful and hospitable staff. Thank you Poppy for a wonderful stay in Santorini! I will be back next year for sure!

Came to Santorini with a friend and were spoilt by Poppy and staff from the minute we got there. Organise a port pick up and they are more than happy to help in any way possible. Great breakfasts, spacious, clean and modern rooms. The pool area was our home for the 3 days we were there and we needed nothing more. A little bit out of town but knew about this. Bus stop right out the front and Poppy's husband drove us in once too. We will be back.

I loved this place from start to finish. The staff were wonderful. Poppy was the most gorgeous hostess, exceptionally helpful and the bar staff were both lovely and aesthetically appealing. The hotel had a bar, pool and restaurant area where breakfast was available. The villa was close to transport and the airport with waterviews and a peaceful atmosphere. Ideal for couples, backpackers and families. I was surprised at how fantastic out experience was given the price and would highly recommend to anyone coming to Santorini.

Room Tip: Speak to poppy about your preferences, she is exceptionally helpful
