We were welcomed with a warm smile from the front desk. The room was neat with a lovely little kitchenette and a fridge. The location was great close to Santorini and the bus services. The swimming pool area was so pretty and the lights in the evening. A lovely experience 😊 Thank you ☺️ Sam and Charls South Africa and Australia

Brilliant hotel just outside of Fira. We stayed in a patio room which was big, super clean and modern. The pool area was cleaned everyday and really enjoyed the pool! We had breakfast at the hotel one morning which was really tasty. I’d recommend this hotel and it’s a scenic short walk into town

The staff at this hotel are amazing. They made me and my family feel totally at home and nothing was too much to ask. Special mention to Stella at the bar who made excellent drinks and became almost like family by the time we were leaving. She works so hard and always made time to chat with us and made a lovely effort to make us feel extra special on our wedding day, it was so appreciated! The food was so yummy, big portions, lots of options, so fresh and such great value. Rooms are spacious and super comfortable and clean. Our parents were in the pool access rooms and we were in the balcony with pool view room, all excellent choices. Location is super close to fira and very convenient. We were all very sad to leave.

Beautiful accommodation. Very chilled with lovely welcoming staff. Great location and super clean. The pool is perfect with a lovely relaxed bar and plenty of loungers. Our first time on Santorini and this hotel was just what we were looking for! 🤩

Me and my girlfriend stayed in Ifestos Villa for 7 days and it couldn’t of been better! The staff are so friendly and helpful. Our flight got cancelled with only a few weeks until our holiday and we had to rearrange the booking for a day before and they were happy to change. It’s a 10 minute walk away from Fira centre and it’s nice and quiet! The rooms are very nice and the bed is super comfy. Would 100% recommend!

Myself and a friend stayed here for 3 nights in September. We emailed ahead as after realising that we had booked a room without a balcony, and they very kindly upgraded us for free. Overall the service was amazing. The pool area is beautiful and the sunbeds are really comfy. Sadly the pool bar wasn’t open when we visited but we expected this to be because of Covid. The hotel were really good with sticking to Covid rules and we felt safe. Location is a 10 min walk into fira. There you can get a short bus to Oia for the day which we did. Would recommend this hotel!

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and it was excellent. Located a short 10 minute walk from the very centre of Fira it is ideally located. You get the best of both worlds; a wonderful pool with comfy sun loungers to spend you day, and lots of restaurants/cafes/bar just a stones throw away without any of the noise. There is also a big carpark if you were to hire a car/moped/quadbike etc. The manager was very helpful and attentive offering us towels to use around the pool and booking taxis at reduced fairs (20 euros from the airport instead of the 35 euros quoted elsewhere). The rooms are cleaned every 3 days due to the current pandemic if you are staying for longer than 2 nights and the staff wore face coverings. The sun loungers were even socially distanced but during our stay there was never more than 3 other couples around the huge pool. The room itself was lovely - traditional Santorini style which was beautiful with a fridge and air-con. The free wifi is fast throughout the whole of the grounds. The bar was closed, perhaps due to low numbers of visitors at this time. I would 100% recommend this hotel for couples; it was perfect for our stay.

Booked a non-refundable stay for September 2020, but with COVID-19 we aren't comfortable travelling anymore. The management office was very flexible and offered to refund our reservation in full without any penalties, rather than forcing us to rebook for a later date. We'll definitely be rebooking our stay with Ifestos in 2021

We stayed at Ifestos Villa in September 2019 for a short, last minute trip for our ‘mini-moon’ as our honeymoon wouldn’t be until April 2020 (and was subsequently cancelled due to the global pandemic). My husband and I had a great stay. This was our second trip to Fira so knew exactly where we wanted to visit and what we wanted to do and Ifestos made it so easy to do so.

My husband and I stayed three nights at Ifestos. Our room was large, comfortable and the staff was really friendly and helpful. The hotel is clean, pleasant and silent, but close to the hectic streets of Fira. I would only recommend them to put a bigger sign on the entrance post so that everyone can easily see where to turn and get to the hotel. That part of the street should also be lighter to give the guests a better feeling of safety at night.
