From the minute we walked out onto the pool balcony and saw the jaw-dropping view to the moment we were hugging the amazing receptionist Mary goodbye, our honeymoon stay at Villa Ilias was outstanding. Our room, right off the pool balcony, was clean, very comfortable, and a wonderful value. The pool was gorgeous. The owner, George, and the staff were... More

Stayed here in April with a friends, Georgios was great at settling us in and letting us know about the local walking route and how to get around, the rest of the staff were great, especially the lady who used to be at reception in the evening. The location was great because it was close to the main road so... More

First of all I will not repeat all the great points about the Villa Illias but rather just re enforce that anyone going to Santorini should seriously consider staying here. The hotel rooms were clean and functional but the really exceptional points are: 1) the staff such as George and Mary who are extremely warm, friendly and helpful and they... More

I stayed at Villa Ilias for 3 nights, checking out yesterday. It was the most wonderful stay, I could not have imagined staying anywhere else! Georgious was wonderful, arranging my transfers to and from the airport, providing a daily newsletter outlining suggestions of what to do each day as well as facts about Santorini and weather predictions. I was also... More

Really a great hotel. We would not have chosen another hotel after being there for a week and seeing the options. Firostefani is a nice part of Santorini. It's peaceful and quiet but a really short, pedestrian only, scenic walk to Fira. Fira is nice but staying there would mean visitors filing past your door all day everyday. We are... More

I spent 4 nights at Villa Ilias in April and it was the perfect base for my time in Santorini. The location is ideal (I loved the quieter area with great spots to eat a couple min walk away --and fine even alone in the dark-- and some of the best views on the island, and while obviously still a...

We could not have asked anything better! The staff was wonderful, the location was great (nice and calm and just a short walk away from Fira), the room was nice and ohhh the view was amazing! Would definitely stay here again.

Management professional and care taking. Excellent location at a walking distance to all restaurants, bars, shopping area etc. but its best is the view on the Caldera, the surroundings and the chora, really amazing.

The views of the blue domes and sea from our window were magically beautiful! Even the little window in the shower looked like a painting. It's a well located hotel close to nightlife but in a serene environment. The hotel is very clean. The breakfast was tasty with wide selection to choose from. The staff at this hotel are the...

Stayed here for 4 days with some friends and was greeted by George and the rest of the crew in such a friendly manner. He helped us with any queries we had and was very pleasant during the entire trip. We got upgraded from a triple room to a studio for free including free transfer which was great! Room was... More
