“Wonderful Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Having looked at lots of reviews for hotels in Oia, I settled on the Fanari Villas and we weren't disappointed. Amazing location for the sunset and only 2 minutes from the main street but far enough away from the hoards of people who arrive on the big cruise ships.

On arrival we were greeted by Nikolas on reception who was so welcoming and friendly and throughout our stay did everything he could to make our stay perfect. Every member of staff we came into contact with was great, the service we received was excellent.

Our room was large and spacious, very clean and had a large terrace with the most stunning views and brilliant view of the sunset, 4 days (and 4 sunsets) was just not enough.

Having stayed at 5* hotels all over the world, Fanari Villas has to be one of the best all round experience, we will definitely be back.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 16 which had a very large terrace but all the rooms looked lovely and all have bal...

We didn't stay in the villa accommodation as we were staying in Kamari but we ate here on a recommendation from the staff at Nissia apartments.

Oia is generally one of the most expensive places on the island so the meal was a little more expensive than we'd eaten elsewhere but certainly not extortionate. 2 courses each plus wine was 120 Euro. It was worth it for the view & to be honest I think that's what you pay for as much as anything else.

The setting is out of this world, stunning views, amazing service & food and an absolutely special experience.

I just wish we could have afforded to stay longer & maybe have a night at the villas themselves.

I was traveling with my husband to Greece on vacation and we stayed at Fanari villas for 3 nights this was amazing hotel with huge room and our own private sit out area directly overlooking the sea and the beautiful sunset at Oia village. We loved this place and the staff, they were very courteous, Danny actually waived off our dinner bill because the entertainment system wasn't working and this was a pleasant surprise for us. The location of the hotel is great among other properties, our room was at a vantage point which gave us very clear view of sunset without running anywhere.

Room Tip: Room in the far right or western corners right towards the sunset point!

Thank you to the wonderful, thoughtful staff and hosts of Fanari Villas who made our first stop on a mediterranean trip a very relaxing and refreshing interlude. Cocktails on our private terrace facing the view from the first night - a lasting picture in our minds. Wonderful food in the restaurant - we ate lunch and dinner on several days and enjoyed the recommendations of local restaurants too. We kept the receipts to remind us of the grilled sardines my husband loved so much....The mature staff from different countries were part of the calm - providing a feeling of escaping from the peak season crowds to an oasis. This stay came to us as a recommendation from a great friend - it was one of the highlights in several weeks of travel. Thank you to Mimi, Nickolas, Alexandra and the other staff who made this such an amazing short stay.

Room Tip: Ask for one facing the view but not too far from the restaurant, if climbing stairs are problematic...

my daughter and I went for a vacation in Oia, we stay 4 nights in Fanari. the room was clean, spacious and beautiful. we were given an upgrade to honeymoon suites that comes with cave swimming pool! my girl soaked herself in the pool everyday. we watched 4 beautiful sunset at our balcony with wine in my hand. they even called me to check on my flight status, told me I could check out late as my flight was at 5.30pm. (on availability). we had dinner in our room while waiting for sunset, fish and octopus were good.

Room Tip: all rooms with great views!
