This is the third time we have visited this hotel. It did not disappoint. We stayed in Room 20 which consisted of two rooms, one with a loft. The Villa was dug right into the cliff. A complimentary bottle of wine and a bowl of fruit awaited us. Our bedroom consisted of a very comfortable king size bed with a clean soft duvet, a sensible closet complete with safe and many lamps. A large window overlooking the water completed the picture. Dressing gowns were folded neatly on the bed along with plenty of soft towels.
We had a minifridge with a complimentary large bottle of water. There was plenty of cutlery and dishes, a sink, in fact, everything a person would want in a small apartment was available. We bought beer and soft drinks in town which was much cheaper than buying it from the hotel pool bar. There was a table and another closet in this room. The loft contained another bed which we did not use but we stored our luggage there. The bathroom was small but very functional. We had good water pressure and no lots of hot water.
This property has a fabulous pool. One can swim right to the edge of the pool and lie in the water, elbows on the edge, and overlook the caldera and the water below. Absolutely spectacular. The water was a bit chilly but very refreshing after a hot day exploring the the island. Speaking of spectacular, this Hotel has perhaps the best sunset view on the island. Forget Oia; the Honneymoon Villas Petra sunset is unsurpassed.
Breakfast was a treat in itself. Everrything one could possibly want was available. Fresh breads, hot croissants, a variety of cereals and cheeses, fresh fruits and vergetables, boiled, scrambled or fried eggs complimented with sausages and/or bacon, a medley of sauteed mushrooms and, of couse plenty of that marvellous Greek yogurt. The coffee was freshly brewed and delicious. Sitting overlooking the water, high up on the cliff, enjoying a leisurely breakfast was breathtaking.
We had a lovely patio outside our room with Muskoka type chairs and a table. It was peaceful to sit overlooking the caldera and watch the cruises ships go about their business of tendering tourists.
To emphasize how this well hotel looks after guests consider the following. We had to catch a flight early on the last day of our visit. We had to be at the airport at 5 o'clock in the morning. We were prepared to have a small box of fruit and perhaps a bun before leaving. But no, a full breakfast was waiting for us at the restuarant. Hot coffee, toast, cheese etc. What a treat. Our luggage was picked up and delivered to the pick-up point in plenty of time to catch our bus.
I could continue to sing praises concerning this property but will close with the comment that this is a hotel dedicated to customer service. They do not know how to say no to any request. Our third trip to this hotel was certainly the best. We fully intend to return to Santorini and will definitely stay at the Honeymoon Villas. All I can say is bravo to this hotel and their cheerful and accommodating staff.
