“Another Great Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Another wonderful holiday at this superb hotel. As per my previous report (31 Oct 2011), the attention from the staff was exemplary and it is simply not possible to find fault with any of them.
The breakfasts were as before (large, varied, well prepared and tasty), and not a single lunch was needed during the week.
A couple of enhancements from last year are worth noting:-
1. They now serve light food in the afternoon and evening, so if all you need is a Greek salad or a pizza, you won't need to move from the hotel. Example prices (Sept 2012):- Pizza/pasta €8-9, Sandwiches €6, Salads €8-10, Souvlaki € 10, Bruschetta € 3, Cheese plate € 6.
2. The provision of complimentary iced melon water while sunbathing is a nice touch and welcome.

We were interested to learn that some of the furniture and the little model house shown in the photograph were actually made by Kakha, the porter/general factotum. He is a reassuring presence around the place and, like the rest of the staff, seems to be around whenever needed but not in the way when not. We had a hire car from the airport and were making our own way to the hotel but nevertheless he was there to greet us in the public car park on arrival – a very welcoming touch.

Servicing of the rooms seems to happen ‘by magic’. The hotel staff are discreet and the rooms are usually serviced whilst one is having breakfast or otherwise away – similarly, the staff choose their moment for cleaning, turning down etc. Towels are replaced daily – given the requests from most UK hotels to keep using re-using towels, this is an unashamed (if rather guilty!) luxury.

I have seen some sites suggesting that the hotel has only 12 rooms. In fact it has 20 – there are 12 individually styled rooms of various sizes and then an additional 8 studio rooms.

We stayed in the Superior Suite, as last year, (Room 9) for 5 nights and the Honeymoon Suite (Room 10) for 2 nights. Both are spacious and very comfortable (re-upholstered since last year). Both have the rather strange bathroom arrangement whereby separation from the rest of the apartment is by a ‘floating wall’ or curtain rather than with a wall and a door (see photo). The Honeymoon suite is enormous and the patios for both rooms, both overlooking the Caldera (and one of the best sunset views on the Island) are very large too.

The only difficulty in reviewing Remezzo is that there are not enough superlatives in the English language. Well be back.......

Room Tip: Rooms 9 (Superior Suite) and 10 (honeymoon Suite) both have spacious terraces with superb views of t...

We arrived in Santorini at 4am.In Imerovigli, somebody was waiting to help with our luggage.Our reservation was for that day but we were given a room to sleep in until we could transfer to our intended room at noon. We looked forward to breakfast, which was different everyday but very good.Service was outstanding! Towels were changed twice daily, hotel staff were very helpful and cheerful. We went to Oia once to watch the famous sunset but it really was way better in Imerovigli, sitting by the pool with a drink in your hand, away from the crowd.

Me and my husband visited Santorini and Remezzo Villas in September and stayed there for 5 nights. I have to say that it is by far one of the best hotel experiences we 've had. Amazing (and perfectly clean) room with splendid view, delicious food, excellent service and romantic atmosphere! Vassilis was also very helpful giving us all the information we needed about the island. Everything was just perfect! We can't wait to come back next year!!!

A beautifully designed, well thought out, and charming hotel in Imerovigli. Outstanding, friendly service, and spectacular location. Breakfast was most delicious I had in all of Santorini, fresh and home-made. Gorgeous view leaves you feeling suspended in space. Welcome at reception unrivalled by any of the four hotels I stayed in in Santorini in terms of information, helpfulness and friendliness.

We stayed at Remezzo for 4 nights and never wanted to leave - I'm convinced the reason we fell in love with Santorini is due in large part to the wonderful service and beautiful surroundings of Remezzo Villas. The owner, Vasillis, is charming and personable, he gave us a wonderful itinerary for our trip, everywhere he instructed us to go did not disappoint and we went to restaurants at his reccommendation and had amazing amazing food on all different parts of the island - added bonus was that the nights we had Vassilis book dinner for us ahead of time, we always had an amazing table with a view. The enitre staff is friendly and attentive, and breakfast was awesome - no menu, just served 3 courses of whatever is being made that day, and it was so inexpenisve! Cannot wait to go back!

Words can not begin to explain how wonder our stay was. What put remezzo above any other place we had stayed in Europe was Vasilis-we arrived late at night, he carried our luggage down all the steps into the room, offered us delicious local Santorini Wine. He recommended a restaurant near by-called to find out what time they stopped serving to make sure we didn't waste our time and spent so much time with us explaining the island-must see attractions and places to eat, how to get where we wanted to go.
The breakfast was a little more expensive then any other place we stayed at, but 100% worth the money-the breakfast was beyond delicious.
The pool views were beautiful. While hanging out at the pool, we were served cold towels and flavored water.
I can not stress enough how fabulous the staff was at this hotel, and how beautiful the hotel was.
Also, the location was perfect, right in the middle of the island, and we rented an atv-so everything was minutes away.
Thank you for such a wonderful stay!

We stayed in Remezzo for 3 nights along with family and had our wedding ceremony on our third day. The first thing we can see when we walk down the stairs to our rooms, is the splendid view with deep blue sky and the volcano island! Staff extremely helpful carrying our luggages (many big luggages!!)

Calypso and Vasilis guided us where to go in the island, planned the itineries for us, booked restaurant for our dinner, even provided recommendations for our next stop - Athens!

On the wedding day, after the ceremony Vasilis asked all of us to have a drink in the other room and guess what - he arranged a decoration to our honeymoon suite, candle path to the bed, petals on the bed, champagnes, many many items which surprised us so so much!! Just wanna say.... this is SOOOO memorable!!

The breakfast - where you have a great view, we need great food to match the scene, and Remezzo do have both!! Every morning there is a multi-course breakfast which starts with a whole box of tea bags with 12 flavours to choose from, and starting with homemade cakes, pastries, yogurts with fresh fruit, freshly squeezed orange juice etc! Thanks to Vasilis's mom making these!

Thank you so much - Calypso and Vasilis, you guys are one of the role models to travel industry.

I will give seven stars instead of five (if I can :P)
