This is a beautiful, comfortable, and clean hotel in a great location! Breakfast is very good and served near the pool with an ocean view. However, it is very hard to find and requires quite a bit of walking and staircases to reach it. Try to arrive with daylight and pack light :)

Place is nice but not very easy...it's 10-15 minutes far from oia and there are a lot of stairs to do. If you don't have good legs maybe this is not the right place but, in santorini the most part of the hotel are innthe same situation, We' ve been only 2 days but we stayed fine. They are very...

Popped here for a couple of extra days in Santorini after leaving Dana villas. Wanted a traditional village no frills and out of the way without being to far of beaten track. If you want this then I can recommend Ambelia. First impressions was not overwhelming, but settle in and the quite tones of nothing hits you fast. In fact... More

This place was really lovely, clean, spacious, had very friendly staff and beautiful views! The breakfast that was provided was really good, normally I tend to always eat out when on holiday but this breakfast was too good to miss. The rooms were really comfy and clean, there were fresh towels everyday and the bed had been done up for... More

We loved our stay at Ambelia. We were met by the Pocket Rocket Donny (not sure of spelling sorry) who amazed us by carrying both of our +20kg suitcases at once along the most quaint (and trecherous) path to our room. Sammi (again..spelling..sorry) is a seriously good host, welcoming, knowledgeable of the area and good for an honest conversation of... More

Our villa was very spacious and the bed very comfortable. All but the lower level villa had good views. We loved the view and the very spacious patio. The manager and other guests very very gracious. It seems to me that Finikia is on the cusp of being absorbed by Oia. If I am right, now is the time to... More

This place is great if you want to be close enough to Oia to walk in but far enough away to be quiet, thanks to Sami who runs the complex for the great breakfasts and friendly welcome, the Greek yoghurt with the sour cherries was very nice.
