“Simply the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

Over 400 excellent reviews, and everyone of them is right, this place is simply amazing and if you go to Santorini this is the MUST STAY place.

My wife and I stayed at the Anastasis Apartments for 4-5 nights in late August 2011, one of our stops in an 8 week holiday through Continental Europe, UK and Ireland. Our stay here coincided with our 30th wedding anniversary.

One of the things we tried to do throughout our holiday was choose places that in themselves were unique, charming or different so that where we were staying contributed to part of the holiday, and Anastasis Apartments certainly lived up to this requirement..

We arrived at Santorini airport and had arranged for a driver to collect us and take us to the apartments, from there our wonderful adventure began and certainly all of the experiences other reviewers had we also experienced. Without wanting to give too much away I won’t cover specifics and also much of what I would say has already been repeated many times over – reading all of the TA reviews will certainly give you a feel of what this place is like.

Despina and the staff were wonderful, and they were committed to making sure every guest was spoilt and made to feel extra special, always with a smile on their face and a charming, warm and engaging personality. In my view it is the people who work there that make this place amazing.

Our room was wonderful, the view simply breathtaking, the facilities awesome, the food incredible – gourmet room service, the afternoon tea on the balcony, the evening glass of white wine whilst watching the sunset from our balcony, it just goes on and on ……

Whilst we had no car and the apartments are located a little away from a nearby town, access to places was not an issue. Near to the apartments are some restaurants, and in many cases either Anastasis apartments or the restaurants would provide free transport. The walk into Fira was maybe 20-30 mins, and was enjoyable – getting to Oia was a bit more tricky but again Despina and her staff were to the rescue. They organised a taxi for us, and we caught a bus back, with a bus stop just outside the complex that was fine (the bus trip itself was an experience but that is another story !!).

Throughout the whole stay we were pampered, a small but classic example was when we would return from our walks along the coastal path, someone would see us coming and be waiting for us at the main gate with an ice cold glass of water – something very simple and minor, but just shows the attention to detail that the staff provide.

There are so many other stories I could mention, but that would spoil some of the surprises !!!. I so wish I was there now !!!

In summary this is a place not to be missed, and we certainly want to go back and stay there again.

My wife and I stayed here at the beginning of September for 6 nights in a suite for our honeymoon and there are not enough superlatives to really describe how superb this place really is.

From the warm and friendly arrival to our departure we can honestly say that we have never experienced such attentive service. Destina and all of the staff really made this a time we will never forget.

The rooms are really beautiful, the private veranda and hot tub we had allowed us to enjoy the tranquil sunsets in peace and quiet, away from the crowds you experience elsewhere on the island. The pool area and views were simply breathtaking and you can tell a lot of love and pride has gone in to making this a place of peace and quiet.

The location of the apartments is perfect to explore the rest of the island and with Imerovigli only a short walk away everything needed is close at hand.

We really would recommend this to anyone, it is a dream come true of a destination and the boys make sure your every need is taken care of.

Not much more to say really, you just have to experience it yourself. Amazing.

Room Tip: All looked beautiful but we had a suite which came with a hot tub and a large veranda with sun beds...

This place looks like the paradise, It looks like the tip of the earth, Its serene and the location is scary. Too bright with toomuch reflections. Very tastefully done architecture blending with the surroundings. Soak yourself in the jacuzzi and enjoy the view. The service was excellent too. We surely want to go again. Back home those memories are haunting and feeling stay sick

Only one recommendation email Despina and book it, a honeymoon suite if you can.
Everything that you read is exactly right. Everyone is extremely professional, always helpful and they have the whole service working like clockwork and yet it still feels personal and special to you. We send our gratitude to the perfect hosts.
When you walk the Coastal path in both directions you come home quite smug that you are staying at the very best, small is beautiful and Anastasis is both.
The light inclusive breakfast as varied freshly made and a bit of a feast, you select a time and the team bring it to your balcony, set up your sun beds and leave you to it.
There treats and surprises throughout the day, so try and devote a full day to just relax and enjoy the hospitality.
My husband was constantly teasing Despina and the girls but they were all great and teased him back. (Natalie,,,Malcom says hi!).
We shall certainly return and choose hopefully better weather as it rained most of our stay at the end of October.
There are many good places to eat and the staff will take and collect you for local restaurants and get taxis for you for those further out. Some places will send a car for you at no cost.
They close completely for the winter months, so we will be booking early for 2012.

The raves from other reviewers are spot on. Staying at Anastasis Apartments is a truely unique and memorable experience. It really was the highlight of our Europe trip. The owners, Despina and her husband, have a top notch staff that never stop impressing you with their level of genuine service and caring. Their restaurant recommendations were all great with reasonable prices. Our favorites were Naoussa in Fira, Roka in Oia and Toy Nikoy near Anastasis (Toy Nikoy offer free transport from Anastasis to their restaurant and back). The breakfasts, which were served on our large balcony overlooking the sea, were all excellent and varied. Gave excellent rating for 'Restaurant' just based on our breakfasts even though there is no actual restaurant at Anastasis.

While at Anastasis, our departure was delayed by one day due to one of Greece's transport strikes and Despina worked her best to assist us in making new bookings. Of course if you're going to be delayed anywhere, Santorini and Anastasis is the place to be.

Room Tip: We think center of 2nd floor has best view but all 10 apartments seemed great from what we could see...

We stayed in early September for 8 nights. Initially we thought "maybe 8 nights will be too much", believe me, it wasn't. It was so perfect and we were the most relaxed we had been for years and years. We had an 2nd floor suite with balcony and outside jacuzzi. It was sensational. The view is for your pleasure alone and you have absolute privacy (other than for the discreet staff attending your every need). The rooms were lovely, functional and easy care. The first couple of days we unwound and explored the island and tackled the local bus system, all good. Loved Oia. You cannot stop looking at the view, its impossible to take your eyes off it. The next couple of days we decided we would just relax because all too soon we would be back home. We did relax and to a level we can't remember ever being for many many years. It was a total unravelling of all stresses and worries safe in the knowledge that Despina and the staff had your every need or whim organised and scheduled. Please take me back there anytime.

Room Tip: All the rooms are fantastic. The suites on the 2nd level and more private and you have your own priv...

I've been meaning to write this review for about 4 months. The place was awesome, I don't think I can really add too much more than the other reviewers; just to say that all the thoughtful little touches really make it special. We did put on a few kilos on holiday but we've since lost those and the memories will last forever. Oh yeah, I proposed there too - magical place. Thank you Depsina and crew for such a lovely time. Hope to come and visit again!

Room Tip: Go for one with a jacuzzi!
