“Perfect hotel in Fira”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

We had the pleasure of staying at Villa Renos in August 2012. We could not speak highly enough of this family run hotel. It is located in a perfect position in easy walk of restaurants and shopping. The bus station is also nearby. Breakfast at the hotel is a real treat, you wake refreshed each morning after a perfect night sleep in very comfortable beds wondering what delights await you for breakfast. Vassili is a wealth of information regarding day trips and is helpful in organizing them for you if you would like. We cannot wait to return to Villa Renos again. The view from your balcony is stunning.

Spotlessly clean, very friendly service, home-cooked breakfasts (different every day), a view from the balcony of your room that is unparalleled. What more do you need?! This is also an incredible island and you must not miss the ancient site of Akrotiri, to learn about Aegean civilisation c.1600BC. My guide, a lady from Crete, was outstanding.

Villa Renos has a great location, the best view, the best breakfast, and perfect hosts! What more can you say? We have stayed there twice and hope to return again! You are near all the action and shops of Fira, but in a few steps you are in your own little world.

This was our last stop on a three week tour of Turkey and several Greek islands. Villa Renos was excellent to work with via email and their web page was very accurate in reflecting what to expect. The service was first rate, the accommodations were first rate and the view was incomparable. The staff made you feel like you were visiting friends rather than staying at a hotel. The breakfasts were unique, and delicious. A great way to end a three week vacation and we are now trying to figure out how to come back!

We travelled for three weeks in Europe and Santorini was our last stop and thank goodness. It was the most relaxing, most breathtaking, and enjoyable stay me and my new fiance experianced (which included good hotels in Paris, Switzerland, and Italy). Before arriving, we had very good communication via e-mail with the hotel confirming our arrival and arranging the taxi pickup. Upon arrival, service took our bags to our hotel room while we had a short conversation with the front desk. They walked us down to the room and opened our shutters to the most amazing view I've seen since meeting my future wife and until my first born. Seriously, it was great. The accomodations were matched by the service when at breakfast, the owner brought out three course meal of all hand-made, self-grown, fresh-squeezed dishes topped off by a dessert with chocolate made in-house. All delicious and included in the price of the room. Any information we needed was given immediately or sooner. When we arrived I forgot to ask for the wi-fi password and when I called the front desk they answered with the password - i mean "hello, the password is ....." wow. It was an incredible stay. we enjoyed it all, the whirlpool overlooking the bay to the secret room service (each time we had the course breakfast we came back to a cleaned room). I don't know if it'll always be like this but if you're reading this around the time I posted it - BOOK THE ROOM. Second best choice I made the whole trip - after proposing in Paris.

It really is as good as everybody says. We had an incredible 7 day stay and the view from our balcony was amazing. Although we went out every morning after a substantial and delicious breakfast cooked by Zina we couldn't wait to get back in the afternoon to sit on our balcony until sunset every evening. We would highly recommend staying at this small friendly hotel.

Room Tip: Room 103 is great and has a hot tub on the balcony.

What can I say that hasn’t been said? It is true the location is perfect, not too many steps but enough to still retain the caldera experience, fantastic service and wonderful accommodation with each room feeling unique, breakfast being a culinary delight of which I have never before encountered but all this has already been described much better than I could ever do.

What hasn’t been mentioned, at least not recently, is Villa Reno as a wedding destination. What was to be the beginning of a European holiday also became the setting for my daughter’s wedding. Although we had planned the ‘big wedding’ my daughter and her partner decided they would rather have a more relaxed personal ceremony and decided on Santorini so our holiday also became the setting for their wedding. Our original holiday booking for a group of 6 grew to 11 with 9 of us staying at Villa Reno. This initiated many questions through emails to Vassilis who managed everything beautifully. Nothing was too much trouble, he just kept saying ‘leave it to me I have done this many times’ and for a control freak like me that was very difficult to do as I had no idea what was happening.

Vassilis, Zina and Petros organised everything, the setting, the photographer, the Mayor for the service, bouquet and flowers, the cake and champagne and even arranged and booked the restaurant for dinner. The day was stunning and yes, Vassilis did know best.

The ceremony was everything my daughter and her partner wanted. It was a wonderful day with nothing to do but relax and enjoy the experience. The day unfolded as a fairytale should ending with the wedding ceremony at sunset.

No place is ever perfect, there is always something that could better meet each person’s personal preferences but this is as close as I have ever come. A big thank you to Vasilis, Zina, Petros and all the staff for making the wedding and our holiday so special.

Room Tip: All rooms are wonderful but if stairs are a problem ask for a higher room.
