“I Have to Give a Review for This Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

I have extensive experience with Hotel service and amenities and I will say that this was the Best place I have ever stayed!!!

Number 1 reason: The people that run the hotel were so kind and friendly, my wife and I felt when we were checking out we were leaving close friends.

Number 2 reason: After traveling the whole island for 5 days. Immeroviglia is the best area for a quiet but beautiful stay. My hotel room behind the pool was insanely amazing. It will be missed is an understatement. This really would be our Number 1 reason but the staff was so nice I put it as number 1.

Number 3 reason: Not sure if it was the time of season (may 4th-10th) but it was so quiet. Felt very private. Loved it.

Number 4 reason: Greek people are great and there is a restaurant nearby named Anogi that were so much fun. They bought us shots and made us feel so welcome. Best restaurant on island as reviewed on Tripadvisor. I understand why.



P.S
Hey Euli, if you find us a good job we may move up there permanently!!

Room Tip: If I was going to go back, I might stay on one of the lower floors where it's even more private...

Room 5 has the best private balcony on the property which was a worth not having the hot tub. Very friendly staff. It is nice to get the complimentary breakfast but it is basic. Easy to walk to many other destinations from this point.

Just returned home after spending a few days in Santorini and Iliovasilema Suites. The hotel is superb, with a breath taking view of the volcano and near by islands. The rooms were great, each with excellent view of the caldera. The terraces with small pools,jacuzzis and sunloungers enable the visitors to relax and enjoy the landscape. The service was sufficient and discreet and the manager was incredibly helpful and provided lots of information about the various sights of the island worth visiting. Thanks for a great holiday.

I noticed when submitting reviews for a recent trip that I never gave this hotel the praise it deserves!!! We fell in love with this resort and staff when we visited in the summer of 2011. There were so many hotels to pick from in Santorini and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. Everything was amazing and so memorable. A beautiful infiniti pool, rooftop bar, and picturesque setting. I could gaze into the Aegean sea forever. Exceptionally romantic!

We were in Santorini for our Honeymoon and on recommendation from Trip Advisor reviews, we decided to stay at Iliovasillema Suites. Excellent choice! From the first day of our 7, the staff was beyond accommodating! We booked the junior suite but as we were there for our Honeymoon and they weren't too busy they upgraded us to the Superior Suite. The room was fantastic! The view was unbelievable, overlooking the Caldera and the Volcano! We ordered the continental breakfast which was an excellent choice! Imerovigli is quiet and a little off the beaten path. We rented 4 wheelers and were able to get around the island with no issues. We would definately recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area!

We decided to stay here after doing a Greek Islands tour that was a bit hectic and wanted a bit of downtime. Going by the reviews we chose the iovasillema Suites. From the friendly greeting at reception until our departure our stay was exceptional, and who couldn't fall in love with that view, paradise!

We spent two nights at the Iliovasilema in October 2012 and had an amazing time. I can't begin to imagine what other hotels in Santorini have to be rated above this one because the hotel delivered on virtually everything we could have wished for - and was significantly cheaper than many others in the vicinity.

First off location. Imerovigli is THE perfect place to stay in Santorini. Being just a short 25 minute stroll away from the main town of Fira (and it's a beautiful walk along the clifftops), it's far enough away to avoid the crowds and massive influx of daily cruiseship tourists which beset the main town - and, of course, it provides ringside seats for the spectacular sunsets.

The hotel itself it set into the cliffs and is one of the pristine white hotels you see in all the pictures. The rooms are on the small side, but this is expected of all hotels set into the cliffs (if you're after big spacious rooms, Santorini is not the place for you). Ours was clean and had everything we needed - included a sea view and a terrace where we could spend evenings enjoying a chilled glass of champagne whilst watching the sunset. Our bed was on a mezzanine level, so required climbing a ladder to reach it - we loved this quirky touch, but it may not be suitable for those less mobile. There were ample sunbeds on every level of the hotel, a pool and a bar which were all excellent.

The staff were very friendly, very welcoming and very helpful. Our only minor gripe was that the bar closed early each evening due to lack of staff - but this was understandable in mid-October and wasn't a major issue for us.

Due to the number of uneven steps on the cliffs (which affect most of the hotels with views of the caldera) this hotel, like many others, is unsuitable for those with mobility issues and young children.

All in all we loved the Iliovasilema and would definitely recommend it. Great, great value and a very special place.
