My partner and I have just returned from the most amazing 2 weeks at villa Ilias. The view from the pool is one of the best in Santorini. We loved watching the beautiful sunset whilst drinking a beer/cocktail from the pool bar. The rooms are a good size and each day are cleaned to a very high standard. The bed... More

My husband and I just loved this hotel. We had room 6 , we had our own staircase to our room from the pool and a full view of the caldera. Just breath taking. Mary and George were there for anything we needed. We used Beso for all our transportation needs he was great at the airport when our luggage... More

Being at Villa Ilias was like being at home. The hosts Giorgos, George and Mary were super friendly and provided local recommendations that were very helpful. I enjoyed the breakfasts with a special dish every morning. The room was clean and comfortable. One really does not need a caldera view room because you just need to step out to the... More

We stayed stayed 3 nights and it was perfect, the location, the views, the staff. I still can't believe how perfect our stay was. Our little balcony where we could sit and take in the view and the perfect window opening above the pool with the views of the sea and the fabulous sunsets. Warm friendly staff who take care...

Stayed here for 3 nights in early August. Highlights: - Extremely polite & helpful staff - The best view in Santorini - Lovely private pool area with bar/restaurant - Great breakfast food selection - Perfect distance away from the busy Fira, but close enough to access quickly The view from room #2 was amazing. The room is compact, but functional.... More

Best views in Santorini. Absolutely great location. Staff were very friendly and efficient. We originally booked into a pool room and upgraded when we arrived to the new Monadikos suite king. We were very pleased. Furniture is all concrete based with mattress or cushions on top, and we found this not the most comfortable. I would stay here again though... More

We spent three nights here with three of us (two parents and a adult son) in a small but adequate room, with air conditioning but a slightly minimalist bathroom The staff were most friendly and George and Mary went out of their way to be helpful. The diverse and interesting breakfast set us up for the day. The views from... More

I was SO pleased with my stay at Villa Ilias. My room was small, but very clean a comfortable. I was on the second floor with my window 180 degree view of the caldera, and my small deck to the side had a side view of the town and the caldera. Not every room has such a view, but mine... More

Our room was great, the view was breathtaking and the staff were out of this world the BEST! We arrived at 6a.m. and the transfer they arranged from the airport was waiting with our name on a sign. Since our room was ready they let us check-in and enjoy the complimentary breakfast even though check-in wasn't until the afternoon. They... More
