My husband and I stayed in Fanari Villas for one night during our tour of the Greek Islands in May 2013. What an experience! We got more than we bargained for. We booked a Junior Suite but I think we got more. Our suite was spread over 2 floors. The lower floor had a living room/kitchenette, bathroom and balcony with outdoor jacuzzi. On the upper floor is the bedroom and another balcony with a panoramic view of the sea and the famous sunset.
The staff is very friendly, especially Nicolas who was at reception. He quickly organised a porter to fetch our luggage from the car. This is very necessary since there are quite a lot of stairs to get to the hotel and then again to your room. But for this view and this hotel it is all worthwhile!
We received a complimentary bottle of wine, which we enjoyed on our balcony with sunset. If you want to see the famous Oia sunset, Fanari Villas is definitely the place to stay. The view is unbeatable! It is also within walking distance of shops and restaurants with a free parking area not far from the hotel.
