This hotel offers great service. We took up their offer to have them pick us up from the ferry for 10Euro a person. The check in process was very informative. Ann gave us a list of her favorite restaurants in each area and also her favorite spots on the island on where to catch the sunset. This hotel also gives... More

Villa Ilias is a very nice hotel, renovated and with very friendly and pleasant staff. The room was small but in excellent condition and very clean. Very nice breakfast area and pool with a wonderful view of the volcano. We had great time.

We were extremely excited to stay here and it exceeded our high expectations. The area of Firostefani was perfect as it was close to Fira but very quiet in the evening time. The views from here are phenomenal to say the least! Mary, who operates the hotel most of the time, was extremely helpful and friendly and every recommendation she... More

We were in Santorini for 3 days and found Villa Ilias good enough for the stay. The hotel is directly accessible from the road and no stairs were required to climb up or down from the hotel, a scenario that is otherwise common in Santorini hotels. Firostefani is centrally located and the hotel is right on the walking path from... More

Staff was very kind and the room was spacious and very clean. The hotel has stunning views of the caldera and each room has it own balcony. They also arrange... More

My wife and I recently stayed at Villa Ilias and loved it. It is a family run hotel with family orientated intimacy that makes you feel at home. The breakfasts are home-made (with good variety) and the hospitality genuine. The hotel is in a good location: situated close enough to busy Fira without its noise. Easy walk up the hill... More

Villa Ilias is one of those rare places where you immediately feel at home. The service was great, our room was nice with a nice view, and the staff was outstanding. It is a family run Villa and guests are made to feel as though they are part of the family. There is a nice breakfast provided each morning, plus... More

A bit late with the review but here it is nonetheless. This is the most breathtaking island in Europe and the views from this hotel are magnificent. We paid for a sea view room in June 2012 and we upgraded for free to the private caves set just down the cliff front from the main hotel. This was an amazing... More

My now wife and i were in Santorini in September for our wedding, and Villa Ilias was wonderful. They arranged to pick us up at the airport, and were perfectly friendly when we arrived. Our room had the most amazing view I have EVER seen. The room was a bit small, with a little kitchenette, small bathroom, and spotty WiFi.... More
