“Amazing place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

We stayd here in the second week of October and were nicely suprised with this little hotel, it was so peaceful, very nice rooms and most of the time we had the lovely pool to ourselves,we just loved it, also the location is perfect. The owners are very friendly, they really made us feel welcome. Thank you Victoria, Mamma and Papa. I´m sure we will return to Laokasti Villas!

Room Tip: Room by the pool is perfect

My husband and I were delighted to find this wonderful family owned B and B ,who cared for us from beginning to end of our holiday. From the daughter greeting us with warmth, with Papa in kitchen creating his masterpieces to Mamma serving continental breakfast and ensuring we were safe with directions to adventure each day...... we were in heaven.

We loved the fact that we were so close to the action of the sunset but we travelled across the road to our bedroom kitchen, cooked meals and ate the pool without the hoards of the tourists.

We couldn,t afford the other side of the cliff but I think we scored better. The price was right and we loved every minute of our Santorini home..

We stayed at Laokasti Villas in October, 2012. We flew there for a wedding and wanted something affordable, but not a dive, what we got was great value for money! The grounds were well kept and clean, as were the rooms and the staff (family run hotel/restaurant) were as friendly as you get. Our room had a little fridge and cooker in it, so we were able to buy a few things and snack and drink when we wanted. The pool was great and there is a sauna and hot tub as well... The restaurant was also a good value too, when you look at what you get and the price paid (convenience aside) for it compared to the average price around, my wife and I were satisfied with everything we ate. This hotel is located across the street from the cliff side views, but that's what makes it so cheap and it's literally across the street. in one minute your at the pedestrian walk way, with the white washed buildings, hoards of tourists and amazing views, but it gets intense in that area and it's nice to sleep across the street in that tranquil little spot. this is not a 4 star hotel, but a very nice budget hotel, keep your expectations in check and you will be more than satisfied with your experience!

Just on the edge of Oia town. 5 minutes walk from the shops, resturants, etc. We went during quite season so we were able to get a discounted price for our room. For what we paid the room was more then satisfactory. Pool area was great-spa and sauna. Bed comfy, shower great, free wifi and great service. Would reccomend this place to anyone and would stay again.

We loved ıt here. Vıctorıa ıs the bomb (daughter of the owners who helped us arrange anythıng). Oıa ıs the best spot to stay ın Santorını but comes wıth a hefty prıce tag. Laokastı ıs slap bang at the begınnıng of the beautıful part of Oıa however ıt overlooks the other sıde of the ısland and as a result has lower prıces. It ıs brıllıant. Breakfast ıs ıncluded and ıt ıs lıterally a 30 second walk to one of the best vıew poınts of Oıa.

Tıps: get to one of the bars at the end of Oıa for sunset; best pıcs are actually more late than early mornıng; there ıs a mıcrobrewery ın town and some great vıneyards; quad bıkes are a fun way to get around the ısland (Vıctorıa can arrange).

Thıs ıs a defınıte god bet ıf you are lookıng for prıme locatıon wıth a lower budget and excellent value.

Room Tip: Get one by the pool or wıth a small balcony
