“Lovely place to stay!!”
Reviewed 16 July 2011

We had been recommended to stay at Armonia by friends and were not disappointed. Not flash but immaculately clean and with the most friendly owners and staff. In a quiet location in a side street just off the beach road. Good breakfast and incredible value for money! We would definitely return!

we stayed at this hotel july2011, when we arrived was instantly offered us a room on the ground level and this was great. room was basic but spotless and the room was at the back so very quiet. breakfast was cintinental very nice greek yoghurt and honey was lovely. the family work really hard in the hotel all areas really clean and they were really helpful. this hotel is near the front and close to all shops bars and resturantes. just watch out for the killer sun beds which had the tendency to fold up . on the whole it was great value for money and i would stay again

We stayed here with friends, presumably because it was the start of the season the hotel was nice and quiet except for the party of Greek school children who were a nightmare at night time running up and down the echo-y tiled corridor shouting and slamming doors and their teachers who decided the best place to sit and talk as loudly as they could was the small sitting area on the first floor landing and ignored all requests for quiet after 10.30pm. This, however, wasn't the fault of the hotel but I would question why they didn't speak to the pupils and staff themselves rather than leave it up to disgruntled guests as they seemed to live in the front rooms on the ground floor and must have heard the noise. I would also question why the hotel actually let the children swim (loudly) in the pool after hours without any supervision or infact their teacher being present. Maybe we English have different standards. That said it was a lovely clean, welcoming hotel with nice rooms, ours overlooked the pool area and had a balcony with furniture and a prongy clothes rail and pegs. We had 3 single beds in our room, two together and one separate. I'm not sure if our friends had booked doubles or twins to be fair. There was a small fridge, plenty of coat hangers and a rubbish hairdryer, one of those box and hose things on the wall in the bedroom by the mirror. Unfortunately there wasn't a kettle in the room or any other facilities to make a cup of tea in the hotel for yourself and although I did ask twice to have a cup of coffee in the afternoon and the staff seemed happy enough to provide it, I do wonder if it was because it was early in the season and they weren't busy though, do take a kettle! The shower was fine but water escapes the shower curtain and wets the floor tiles making them a tad slippery and would be difficult if mobility was an issue. Breakfast was nice, continental, yougurt, tinned peaches, ham, sliced cheese, hard boiled eggs, jams, fresh bread, marble cake, tea, coffee and that odd not really fruit juice dilute you always seem to get where ever you stay on the continent. which was fine, I would have liked to have had fresh fruit though. The location was great, 150 metres to the front and no noise from bars, I doubt whether or not you would get noise from bars any where here. The little road in front of the hotel is not at all busy, in fact hardly used. I thought it was a shame there wasn't a proper afternoon/evening communal sitting area available/open (which would have prevented the Greek pupils/teachers problems) again perhaps there is later in the season. There was also a pool bar area which wasn't open. I think what I am trying to say is that I thought it was odd that you couldn't get either hot or cold drinks other than at breakfast time or relax any where except your room or the pool area. The pool was great, plenty of sun loungers/chairs and a nice depth. We didn't actually get to speak much to the staff other than normal good mornings etc., but they seemed very nice and attentive. We found a great bar called Just 4 Beer, deceptive name, wonderful atmosphere, the food was fab. and you couldn't want lovelier more welcoming staff who gave us plenty of advice and tips for visits, see review. All in all you get what you pay for and this was exceptionally good value.

Room Tip: Overlooking the pool or at the back

This was our 40th trip to the Greek Islands and this must be one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in for what we paid for it. The rooms we exceptionally clean and well maintained with little luxuries that one does not always find in Greece. Air conditioning, shower with a curtain, fridge, hairdryer all included in the price. The breakfast was more than adequate and there was no objections to taking your own food into the dining room but there was a good selection of items and as much as you wanted to eat..and real Lurpak butter !!! The pool area was more than adequate and the 50 metres to the sea was about right. Plenty of tavernas in the vicinity and one of the best was the Sea View which was just around the corner. The sunbeds on the beach were very reasonable but you do need some beach shoes to go into the sea as is very hard on the feet and not really a place for small children as the beach slopes sharply and you are up to your neck before you realise it. We had 3 wonderful weeks and will return next year where the family are most welcoming without being intrusive. Some of the negative reviews do not appear to have been in the same place or they expected caviar for fish and ship prices.

Having been slightly misled by some previous reviews we decided to book our stay at Armonia. When we arrived we were greeted by a rather nonchalant member of staff and discovered that we had been allocated a twin rather than a double room. When we tried to change we were given the impression that it was our fault, even though we had the booking details with us that clearly stated we booked a double. This was eventually rectified a few hours later.
The rooms are pretty basic, the only luxuries being a small fridge and air conditioning, it is set to switch of as soon as you leave the room so it cannot be kept cool. There was a smell of drains every time we returned to the room. The television had volume limitation so it was hardly audible and the only 'watchable' channel was CNN. I had to ask for the sheets to be changed after noticing that they had not been for two days, also leave the towels on the floor otherwise they will not be changed either. Breakfast is BASIC. You are provided with some bread, luncheon meat and processed cheese from a plastic container. No fresh juice, just some really horrible squash, hard boiled eggs and tiny croissants that were mostly cold. The best bit was the yoghurt and coffee.
Santorini is a beautiful island, we were very glad that we hired a car so that we could explore at our leisure. Kamari is a perfect mix of beach, bars and restaurants, shame about the restaurant staff constantly trying to get you in, sometimes a bit pushy. Classico Cafe is definitely the best restaurant, wonderful, helpful, friendly staff unlike the hotel.

Stayed at Armonia Hotel for our sons wedding. Very friendly and helpful staff, nice pool, decent breakfast and the room was clean with fresh towels each day. The shower was OK, but it would have been nice if I had not required to hold it in one hand, as it did not fit the bracket. Close to the beach without being too close. Plenty of really good affordable restaurants nearby.

Just returned from a fantastic stay at the charming Armonia Hotel and have to say that the hotel was one of the highlights of the whole experience. The Armonia Hotel is a simple hotel which offers excellent value for money. We stayed with 3 children and we all enjoyed the friendly relaxed atmosphere. The rooms are simple but contain everything one needs including effective air conditioning, mini fridge and small but functional shower rooms. The entire hotel is very clean and fresh towels and sheets are provided most days and changed daily if required. The breakfast was ideal, there is a small choice of continental/greek food and I I enjoyed my breakfast every day . We sat on the veranda in peace and quiet and planned our day. The pool is average sized and sunbeds are easy to find, the pool bar didn't open, however the hotel is 2 minutes from loads of shops, so drinks and ice creams are near to hand. The owners were lovely and the four daughters will help deal with requests. Margaret has fluent English. We enjoyed our trip and found the tavernas were quite expensive however the Armonia is amazing value and well worth every penny. Fira the capital is cosmopolitan but busy and expensive, Oia is stunning, much quieter and full of amazing shops selling local artworks.
