2 friends and I stayed in Imerovigli at Sunny Villas for 8 days, longer than your average tourists. We decided on the hotel after months of investigating because it seemed like the best value - someplace peaceful, had comfortable rooms with spectacular views of the Caldera (the volcanic side of the island), 2 baths, a pool with a view & poolbar, not too much tourist traffic scrambling to buy souvenirs, etc.; other hotels cost 3 times as much and offered less. The hotel manager, Andreas, was terrific even before the trip - very helpful in getting our reservation set up through e-mails. We got to the beautiful island and Andreas got us checked in quickly, situated and ready to relax and take in the beauty of the view right outside our hotel room door - a spectacular view of the Caldera side of the island. Sadly, I left my camera in the taxi on the way from the port to the hotel. We mentioned it to Andreas. He assured me I'd get it back, called the cab company, drove down to the port halfway across the island to find the taxi driver and returned my camera to me...an example of the extra attention he and his staff give the hotel guests.
The 2 bedrooms were clean, spacious, and comfortable with the cave-style set up of the rooms typical on the island. You could even see some of the volcanic rock in one of the bathrooms - instead of shelves, it served as a cove to put your shower amenities. The hotel room had a charming mini-kitchenette area with a mini-fridge, plates and utensils so we could enjoy the snacks, beverages and wine we bought. The patio right outside our door was a perfect place to have our early morning continental breakfasts, bask in the hot sun, read a book or watch the outrageously beautiful sunsets. We did venture down to the pool and jacuzzi many times and enjoyed some fruity concoctions from the pool bar. The lounge music playing over the speakers there made it feel like we were chilling in a lounge in Ibiza.
Being the early riser in the group, every morning I watched the staff sweep, mop and maintain the entire hotel. It was so clean! The pool was cleaned everyday - better than many nice hotels in the U.S. that I've been to. The staff was so nice and friendly but Andreas really was the best - he really took care of us and made sure our stay was perfect. It truly was one of the most relaxing stays we have had in a very long time. All of us miss Andreas and Sunny Villas; we'll definitely come back.
