We stayed at the Avaton resort on our honeymoon in October 2011 (regret the late review!) and booked the honeymoon suite. Wow – what an amazing resort. We were picked up at the airport by a pre arranged car and it look about 15 minutes to drive up the mountain to the Avaton resort. The resort is located in Imerovigli which is walkable but a good distance away from the hustle and bustle of the main town. I feel a better location than Oia, which is located on the far corner of the Island and you would probably need a taxi/car to get around to anywhere beyond the Oia area.
Laura, the manager was just amazing and welcomed us warmly. We actually arrived at Avaton two days early due to strikes in Athens and Laura was very accommodating in being flexible with our booking dates. She assisted us with revising our return flight bookings and showed us to our amazing room. We were treated with beautiful flowers in the room and some lovely local wine and fruits. The honeymoon suite had two balconies, one with the most private outlook with a private spa, and the other that looked onto the resort pool (we watched sunset each night from this balcony – divine).
Marcos who was managing food and beverage service and also helped us with our luggage was an absolute asset to the resort. He was so professional, friendly, efficient and just a delight to meet. Our experience would not have been the same if it were not for him and Laura. Now, to the food. Just beyond amazing. We had a number of ‘room service’ dinners, however we were so surprised and amazed that the meal was set up like a restaurant, with a table, chairs and table setting all in your room (or on your balcony) served in courses! Lots of lovely complimentary surprises, like Vinsanto wine as a dessert beverage and bread and dips for starters. We also ventured to the cave restaurant for a meal and the atmosphere was just beautiful. Breakfast could be taken in room or on the patio and you could make your selection from a number of amazing options, choosing as much as you liked from fruit, meats, cheeses, pancakes, eggs, cake and fresh juices/coffee/tea. Oh, and one night we walked to a restaurant in Imerovigli called Anogi, had the most amazing potato salad and souvlaki.
Do not hesitate to book here, rooms were modern, clean and comfortable and the service is personalised and attentive.
