“A gorgeous place in Oia w/ spectacular views, would love to go back!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2010

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.

We stayed at five hotels whilst Greek Island hopping and this was the most digustingly dirty and noisy hotel I have stayed at on any holiday. There is also no sunset view from the accomodation it requires quite a walk and this was unfortunately the worst part of our trip. Whilst I wrote a letter of complaint to Travel Republic to address our disappointment but they refuse responsibility and inform us that the owners have refused any compensation and so I would strongly recommend you stay elsewhere. Santorini is however absolutely beautiful and I would strongly recommend it.

Is a wonderful hotel of Oia over the cliff at the beginning of Oia, every room has its own private balcony overlooking the volcano, the hotel staff helped us in in all request us, the staff was very polite and friendly. The rooms were very clean and of course have the most amazing view compared to the others hotels of the region & with very reasonable price as well, I propose this complex for those who wish to spend a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

The manager at the hotel was very nice. He took us to our rooms upon arrival and gat us a 10 min rundown about the location and the island of santorini.

One thing to make sure of is to book directly with the hotel rather than going through an online travel agency. We made that mistake and booked through www.santorini-hotels.net and we were very dissapointed. A travel company by the name of travel zone based out of Athens was who the booking was made through. They screwed up our reservation so when we went to the hotel they did not have the room we requested available and the manager states he had told that to the travel zone people on 3 occasions and asked them if they had okayed it with us. They told him that they had but we never heard that. Otherwise we would not have paid extra for a 5 person apartment - the room they initially gave was a single bedroom for 5 adults - OMG! Anyhow, after making a fuss, the manager at the hotel gave us another room so we had 2 rooms among the 5 of us. We later had to fight it out with a lady at travel zone. It was not a good phone conversation.

All in all - book directly with the hotel - the prices are similar so it makes no sense to go through someone else. If I had known this, I would not have gone through that website.

Again the views were amazing, there was daily maid service, nice breakfast. Don't expect luxury, though. It is a family owned place with very basic furniture, bedding, etc..The weather was sort of chilly so we did not get into the pool. The main downtown area of oia is a short 10 min walk.

You already know the views are stunning, and that's largely why you pay more near Oia. It seems the place has changed from being 'Volcanos View' to 'Atlantida Villas', so maybe some improvements have been made to address issues in earlier reviews. We arrived at 05:30 in the moning, off the night-ferry. We waited by the pool until 07:00, at which point the owner happily gave us tea and coffee, even though breakfast wasn't until 08:30. We were also provided breakfast, without having checked in, which was most welcome. Staff very helpful. The town is a few minutes walk (take the cliff top path, NOT the main road!), but that's part of the reason for staying here - getting away from the busy town.

Pool is OK, breakfast OK. Rooms clean and simply furnished, but adequate. We ate out a couple of times, and brought food back to our room to enjoy on our balcony with wine and the sunset on one night. Highly recommend the boat tour of volcano / hot springs / Thirissa - book ahead as it gets busy!!

PS - don't understand complaints about the 'small tv' - surely you're not here to watch tv??

We have very mixed feelings about Atlantida Villas - on the one hand, we thought it was tired and desperately in need of refurbishment and on the other we loved the location and the stunning views! You get perfect uninterrupted views out over the caldera from your balcony or the main swimming pool area. The apartments themselves are okay but certainly not the 4* they advertise themselves to be - 3* at absolute best. The bed was possibly the most uncomfortable I have experienced in a long time which lead to two nights very poor sleep despite the quantity of vino sunk before getting into it! Having said this, you get what you pay for and this was the cheapest caldera view product I could find in the Oia area, so we should not really have cause to complain. I just think it is a great shame to have such great potential - they could refurbish quite simply and charge double the rate, as many of their competitors clearly do! One tip - walk down the cliff path into Oia, it is far quicker than walking the road.

I stayed here with my fiance and my parents in August 2009 for 4 nights. We had a fabulous time and wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel to anyone. Rooms were spotless when we arrived and they were cleaned daily. I booked directly with the hotel who were lovely to deal with and were very friendly. There is a bar which is very quite, however as we wanted a peaceful, relaxing break this hotel was perfect. The hotel is about a 5 minute walk to the center of Oia however this makes the hotel very private. On the walk into Oia there are plenty of hotels and villas (many swimming pools are located on the main footpath into the village so you have to sunbathe with an audience!!) but none have the level of privacy of Atlantida. Location wise this hotel is excellent, the views are amazing, staff are lovely, rooms clean and comfortable. Pool is small but I have yet to see a large pool in Oia! The view from the pool is spectacular. I booked this hotel on the recommendation of other travels who wrote reviews so I hope if your reading this review you have found it helpful..
