“Breakfast with a view.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012 via mobile

If you are looking to stay on the Caldera but out of Fira(Thira) then consider this place. Yes it's a 10min walk from Fira but it's worth it. It's clean, reasonable, has a great view, the staff are very friendly & helpful. But what makes this place is the breakfast that is served on your front deck. Awesome.

Aeolos Villas is perched high on top of the caldera cliffs overlooking the bay of Santorini and the volcano. You get to have breakfast served on your private terrace whilst gazing out over the Aegean and the villages perched along the cliffs. We managed to get a great price on a last minute deal which made it excellent value. The bedroom is carved into the cliff side giving you a sense of peace and quiet away from the bustling tourists crawling all over the island. This is one view that you have to see in life and was the highlight of our stay in Greece. Oh and we had a jacuzzi bath which was absolute heaven

Room Tip: Ask for the second last room on the terrace or one above the pool for the best views

We stayed in this hotel for two nights. The location is better than hotels in Fira. We can see the valcano and sunset. It is close to the famous churchs. Everyday I walked to Fira and the view is very good. The breakfast is abundant and delicious. The wine offered by the hotel is good. The facility of the room is comprehensive. I hope to live in this hotel again when I go to Santorini next time.

We have stayed several times in Imerovigli and this time we tried AEOLOS hotel.
Daphne at the reception was very hospitable always there to help us with the best information
about the island. Every morning we enjoyed our breakfast facing an amazing sea view from our balcony.We spent 4 nights there and we had a fantastic time.We will be back soon!

When you travel to Santorini you must stay at Aeolos Villas for the following reasons
- THE VIEW
- The personal service
- The great features of the rooms
- The close proximity to great restaurants and shops and bus.
We went in September - love it.

Room Tip: All great views

Me and my fiance arrived at Aeolos Suites at 9 o'clock p.m. and spent 7 nighs there. The first thing i noticed was that the view was fantastic,the best ever. Due to the fact that Imerovigli is the highest point of the island it really has a view that only if you are there you can perceive!!!The second thing i noticed was that there was no room to unpack!!!!The studio only had a tiny double wardrobe from which you could only use half of it because only one of the two sides could open.There was no room for the rest of it to open, because the "kithcenette" was blocking its way. Then i saw a couple of creatures with many leggs(i do not know how they are called) in the bathroom and were keeping me company while showering. My fiance killed them both and did not see any more of it until we left! Now about the breakfast. Poor,very poor. Couple of bans,two peices of cake,butter,marmalade,fresh juice,coffe and yogart with honey!Could really add an egg there, or a peice of cheese.It wasn't terrible but was monotonous.Every day the same for 7 mornings in the row!Well, in the mornig of our fourth day there i asked for our bathrobes and sheets to be changed!!!!Nothing was changed the same day.The following day they changed the towels-not the bathrobes-and the day after that, they changed the sheet, but did not bother to make the bed properly.They only put the fresh sheet folded on the bed thus I HAD TO MAKE THE BED!!!As i mentioned we arrived late at night and were also departing late at night,that is 9 o'clock p.m. so we asked for a late checkout and were told that the charge was half the regural charge, that is 75 euros for 5 hours occupacy of the room, while no one else was expected that dau and thus the room was going to be empty anyway.As a result we could not enjoy nor our last day, neither the beach because we had nowhere to shower afterwards, and freshen up, as we did not agtree to pay the charge!!!In addition to these, there was no airport transportation from and to the hotel.To conclude, the use of the swimming pool is not by everyone as it is situated right in front of the superior bouble room,and so only the couple staying there could actually use it as it was uncomfortable walking right in front of others and being in the same swimming pool as it was tiny!So it was like there was no swimming-pool. The hotel could really be amaaaaazing with just a few suggestions because its position really is unique!It's a pitty that the owner does not take his chances to do so!Really pitty!!!A lobby with a bathroom could be very useful for example as i had to change clothes for the airport the last day -could not stay all day long with the same clothes since we were flying at night-and had nowhere to do so!!!
Well, that is pretty it!
The only thing that gets 4 stars for this hotel is its view!

The view from this hotel was stunning and the staff were overall very pleasant and helpful. Unfortunately that is where the positive aspects of it end. We spent 5 nights in loft studio Eros. The accommodation was so small there were no facilities to unpack apart from an open rail under the stairs to the loft, a tiny bedside table and a small shelf on the wall. To get into the shower you had to climb over the toilet and you had to sit sideways on the toilet as the wall came out to touch the front of the toilet.

The Jacuzzi was so noisy we couldn’t use it after the second day as it sounded like it was about to take off. The kitchenette consisted of a sink and hotplate, but there were no kitchen utensils or pans to actually use on the hot plate. You couldn’t even boil water for coffee!! There were no knives to allow you to prepare food either, so as a kitchenette it was completely useless.

On the fourth evening, we ran a small amount of water in the sink to rinse our swimwear and when we pulled out the plug stinky water started rising up out of one of the drains in the floor.

The breakfasts were exactly the same every morning – 2 slices of bread, 2 slices of cake, two little brioche buns (like you get in Tesco), 2 slices of melba toast (again from Tesco) and 2 children’s “fun” yogurts that were supposed to be fruit yogurts but were almost like baby food, they had definitely never seen any fruit in their lives. When asked if we could just have Greek yogurt instead (it being Greece and all..) we were told “No, these were the only available yogurts and they are very good”.

The Pool is basically a plunge pool. It is very small so you can't really swim in it and deep so it is very cold even though we were there in September.

From the hotels website it looks like the rooms have private balconies but, possibly with the exception of one room, the outside areas are shared so there is no privacy.

This hotel relies on its location and offers the customer very little in addition. While Santorini is wonderful and I would definitely recommend a visit, Aeolos Villas ruined the stay for us. We stayed in far nicer hotels for a fifth of the price in Naxos and Amorgos.
