“Home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We stayed in their studio apartment which was excellent value for money and although it didn't itself have a view was very clean and attractive and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, including a bottle of local wine as a welcome gift. The location was great and across the road was a fantastic view of the caldera. We had a huge breakfast on the terrace near the small pool and found the small shop, where we could by food, and the bus stop a short distance away. The owners were very friendly and helpful, collecting us from the port although our ferry was at least an hour and a half late, and taking us to the airport when we left. Santorini is Fantastic for views and this hotel has apartments with balconies with views.

Room Tip: studios have no view.

The price was certainly right for Santorini in August and the concierge was extremely helpful concerning anything we needed, so it pains me to say that the photos of the property are deceiving. They look like the place overlooks the ocean but what it overlooks first is the road in front of it, with other hotels beyond it, before one can see the water. Also, the head of an average-height person is no match for the curved ceiling over the 2nd-floor bedroom. What with the bathroom on the ground floor and a long staircase inbetween, our apartment was quite inconvenient for anyone needing to visit the toilet at night.

Room Tip: I don't know if all the rooms are laid out like ours was but if they are, elderly people especia...

We stayed at Merovigliossa recently for 11 nights in beautiful Santorini. This was our calm oasis from the business of Thira as it is tucked away in pretty Imerovigli. What make this place special is the great welcome and attention paid by the staff, all of whom are friendly and so helpful. But most of all, you cannot fault Roula and Costas who are just the perfect hosts. Costas picks you up at the airport and you are constantly offered lifts if the staff themselves are travelling in your intended direction.
When you return from a day out, you will be offered an iced coffee, or juice and fresh fruit and the breakfasts are plentiful and filling-you will not need to eat again until the evening!
Roula and Costas are a great couple who go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need for the perfect holiday-we could not fault them.
There may be smarter places on the other side of the road, but you will not beat this hospitality.

July 2011
Loved it there, we wanted to see Thyra even if it is very touristy and this place was our oasis from it all. Service was personal and the staff did everything to make our stay wonderful.
Had some trouble with hot water 1st day, we let the staff know on our way out in the morning and it was fixed by the time we got back. Breakfast was good and so plentiful we never ate lunch the whole time we were there.
We had a room with the little balcony and enjoyed the time spent up there. The pool is tiny but we loved having it; relaxing before diner after a long day in the sun.
If you enjoy little places with personal attention, dealing with a staff that cares about their clients, then this is the right place for you.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view, there is a little balcony terrace with a beautiful view, some days can be wi...

We stayed at Merovigliosso apartments for my husband's 30th birthday & had a fantastic time. The apartments are beautifully decorated with wonderful views of the sunset. The staff looked after us extremely well and could not do more to help us enjoy our stay. A real personal service, would definitely return! I would advise hiring a car for your stay as car hire is very good value for money & a great way to see the beautiful island of Santorini.

Room Tip: Book an apartment with a balcony for the sunset views

The staff of this property were the nicest people we have met on our travels around the world. They went out of their way to help us in anyway they could . We were getting married in Santorini and they decorated our apartment and left food and drink there for us. The apartment we had , had the most beautiful view of the sunset. Once again Thank You to the staff of the Merovigliosso Apartments for a unforgettable experience !!!!!! :)

Of course Santorini was included in our May 2012 Greek Island Odyssey. How could one not? Santorini attracts the world. Accordingly, reasonably priced accommodations are a challenge to find. We did a lot of internet searching and finally decided on Merovigliosso Apartments. Everybody wants to stay in a hotel hanging off the cliff looking down into the caldera. We would too, but for the price difference, we could walk across the small street and see the same thing from Merovigliosso.
Merovigliosso is very nice little hotel located in the village of Imerovigli which is on the road to Oia, star of Conde Nast, etc., at the tip of the island. We arrived by ferry boat although Santorini is big enough for air service. Arriving by ferry boat necessitates transport to any hotel on the island, either by bus or taxi. By having reservations at Merovigliosso, we were met at the ferry by a very competent young man from the hotel and delivered to our room. We chose the less expensive rooms in the lower level and didn’t have a view of the caldera from our room. No matter. Got our fair share of viewing the caldera and sunsets during our visit. The room was very nice, adequate size, and immaculately clean. The hotel sported a sweet swimming pool, but too cool in early May for us. The room had an outside sitting area which was nice for tea or wine tasting. The hotel is a couple of blocks from the busy highway going to Oia, and, as such, was very quiet and peaceful. Breakfast was served by the pool and was wonderful: coffee, tea, frappuccino, ham, cheese, egg, bread, and Greek yogurt. The star of the hotel, (yes you gotta be a dog lover), was Sallie (sp), the village dog. What we thought was a sneer was actually Sallie’s crooked smile, when she is happy!!!! Very well behaved, knew her limits, but would accept an invitation for a snack anytime!!!
The hotel staff was very helpful. Suggested things to do and see. Recommended an affordable car rental. Getting around Santorini means a rental car, quad, or bus. We used a rental car for a day and it was great to explore the island, Red Beach, Black Beach, named appropriately. Otherwise, a 1.60 Euro bus ticket will get you to Fira and Oia and you WILL be going to Oia (refer one million photos). Also there are fantastic walks, cliffside, from Imerovigli to Oia and from Imerovigli to Fira.
Santorini is a beautiful and incredibly unique place on this planet earth. You know you’re going. Merovigliosso Apartments will serve as a great place to recharge your over-stimulated eyes and camera batteries. Nice touch is grocery around the corner!!
