“Stayed more than once and Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2011

I have visited Milos Island before, a couple of years back and we stayed at Santa Maria Village. Our experience was so memorable there; when we came back we stayed at Santa Maria again! The staff was so pleasant and the family that owns the business was very courteous and attentive.

We were picked up from the port on time by the driver and he was very friendly and kind. The women who greeted us at the lobby was also very pleasant and asked us before we even went to the room if we had any specific requests they could fulfill. The view from the hotel pool and from many rooms in the hotel is breathtaking. The pool bar was such a nice touch as in the afternoon and the evening before we would go out we would go and have a quiet drink. Personally, the music was great and very fitting while watching the amazing view---very romantic for us. The bartender was very friendly as well and made sure we were comfortable. He did give us some great suggestions and reminded us as to where the hidden gems were!

Our room was also spotless and the breakfast in the morning was always fresh. The outside space where you eat breakfast is so charming. All in all, both our stays at the Santa Maria Village where excellent and we are already planning our trip back!

My husband and I spent 5 nights at Santa Maria Village. All in all had a great holiday - Milos is wonderful - but felt there was always something lacking in terms of service provided (especially when at the hotel).

On the day we were meant to arrive at Milos, I received a call from a lady from the hotel (I reckon the wife of the owner) informing us that the driver wont be able to pick us up from the port (as we had arranged) due to sickness and suggested to take a cab. Fair enough, it came out cheaper at the end. However, we found a bit rude her request to spend some time at the port, maybe grab some bite or a coffee, as the room wont be ready when we would arrive at the hotel. Fair enough again - we understand check in policies of the hotel but I dont think this is something to be told to the client.

When we reached the hotel, some guy asked us (didnt introduce himself) to go and sit by the pool bar and some George guy would come to welcome us, provide us a map of the island and give some info and tips - nobody came. At 2.30pm we were informed that we could go in our room # 61. We found it spacious and clean, the bathroom looked old and was always flooded in water. Hated the towels.

The pool was great and you can have great views of Adamas but got a bit annoyed of the loud music the barman plays all the time. Also, we got stressed sometimes, as we couldnt get beds and umbrella by the pool... the capacity is only for about 10 people and it was only early July, what would happen in August then?

Breakfast is served in a nice veranda - but needs improvement. I believe that hotels charging prices that high should squeeze fresh orange juice in the morning and serve fresh coffee instead of urn type. Bed was hard for our liking, felt a bit unpleasant at some points.

We hired a car for only 100 eur for 5 days - BARGAIN - and went to all the beaches, coming back to the hotel to shower, change and go out. The hotel is a long walk to the main road I would say...maybe worthwile to pre-book a car hire. Plaka (the town) is nice but yet small compared to other Cycladic Islands. Adamas looked busier - try Marianna and Navagio restaurants for food.

Milos was beatiful overall - great food and beaches, no frills about the service (in general). It actually bored as a bit. Make sure you combine it with a close by island when you visit.

We stayed at the Santa Maria hotel on Milos Island for 5 days and found it to be a very professionally run hotel. We have been to over 20 Greek Islands and have to say this hotel was about the best we have experienced.
Good sized rooms with nice ensuite bathrooms, lovely views over the Med and a wonderful swimming pool with plenty of sun lounges.
The breakfast was in the Greek style and of excellent quality.
The hotel is about a 7 minute walk to the port where there are plenty of restaurants to choose from.
Milos Island is a lovely island with plenty of places to see, look to go to the white cliffs area which has a moonscape terrain.
We would recommend the Santa Maria as a good value quality hotel in its class
Wi Fi and free internet is also available.

Stayed for 9 nights ends of Sept. very quiet as off season but perfect weather. Swam every day at beaches and small coves around Milos then back in pool at hotel, We found staff very friendly and helpful. Took us only 5 - 10 mins. down the track to be in the main town walking past restaurants with seating right on waters edge. Room cleaned daily, beds OK( better than Crete) breakfast included eaten under grape vines,olive and orange trees around, overlooking pool .Perfect

We went here with our friends and their young child. It was a great hotel, with a large clean pool which has a lovely view over the town of Adamas. While our room was fine, it didn't overlook the pool, and I these looked far nicer - so it would be worth requesting one of these when booking. The walk into the town centre takes about 15 minutes (not 5 as they tell you!) but it's still a great location, as you are secluded and the hotel is completely quiet. We loved Milos, we went to a different beach every day - either by bus or by car (we rented one for a couple of days). The staff were really helpful and I would definitely go back.

I have been travelling for many years to Milos island, but last time was unforgettable as I and my boyfriend stayed at Santa Maria Village! It is very close at the city center which is Adamas. The atmosphere is luxurious with the phoenixs surrounding the swimming pool....very idyllic environment! Rooms are quite big with an amazing view. Overall, the facilities exceeded our expectations!
