This hotel just blew me away, it is absolutely gorgeous with breathtaking views of the sea. We stayed here for 3 nights & had an amazing time swimming, sunning, walking around the enchanting white-washed town of Oia. We found a great rate, $45-$50/each per night between the four of us. For this price, the location couldn't be more prime! Our room(s) overlooked the pool & the sapphire seas, lending itself to great views of the volcano island as well. We had two bedrooms (on a loft bed above the living room, the other a private bedroom with the balcony). The living room/kitchen area was spacious & had everything we needed. The place was very clean, simple & lodge-style. True to Greek architecture but with a modern twist, Atlantida is completely blue & white. They even have a miniature stone map of Oia w/ figurines, a small church w/ bell tower & a pool in the shape of Santorini on premises. Gorgeous.
It is not in the heart of Oia, about a 10-15 walk to the shops, restaurants, and to where everyone gathers to watch the sunset. Honestly though, being ever so slightly of Oia turned out to be an unexpected joy: this way we had to walk back & forth several times a day, which further enabled us to enjoy the out-of-this-world scenery. Even walking back to Atlantida at night was fine, as it's a really safe area (we even had 2 dogs follow & guard us all the way back home). While in Oia, definitely go to Thira & try out the donkey ride if you're up for it (as touristy as it may be). Fira is definitely a party spot, a little too overcrowded for my taste, whereas Oia is much more beautiful, picturesque & serene. One of the most beautiful places in the world, hands down. I reveled in every delicious moment.
The only thing I have to say about the service (though the were very helpful once we arrived), is that they were not very accommodating when we had to cancel our first night stay due to a ferry cancellation. When in Greece, you have to roll with it: ferries run late or skip over places because they're late. That's precisely what happened to us when we came from Milos, but when I called to explain, Atlantida still charged us in full for our first night--something to keep in mind when island hopping in the Greek Isles. Other than that, honestly no complaints. In this paradise of Oia, honestly one should be able to enjoy it anywhere they stay!
I would love to return to Oia, especially to Atlantida Villas, hopefully with my love next time!! Go there, you won't be disappointed! Absolutely divine.
