This was the best experience we have had. We went as a pre honeymoon for 4 nights and when we left we were wishing we booked longer. The rooms were incredible, the view is unbeatable and the service is wonderful. Firstly, Sandy is so attentive and organised she assisted us with organising all our activities and transfers to and from the airport. She was so wonderful! Secondly, Night Shift Chris was also very wonderful, he assisted us with a late checkin carried our big suitcases down to our room and prepared us food as we hadn’t eaten. He was very kind and super lovely. Additionally the other staff Kiko and morning shift Chris were very attentive and helpful. They made sure we had all our specific likes for breakfast and made amazing cocktails. Lastly, the chef, was outstanding! The food was wonderful and some of the best food we had on the island. We are definitely coming back and will recommend to everyone and anyone we talk to.

Hotel's Favorite
I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. My wife and I stayed here for a week for our honeymoon and it was absolutely amazing. Hands down best hotel I’ve ever stayed at in my life. The entire staff to include Sandy the concierge, the guys who helped with serving us breakfast and anything we needed and the chef with his amazing meals. You could tell they all genuinely cared about their guests and went out of their way to make sure you were taken care of. They would always make sure we had dinner arrangements in place and always asked if we had plans throughout the day.Last but not least, the views from this hotel were absolutely amazing. It was perfect for us because it was nice, quiet and private. I cannot recommend this place enough!

The Vasilicos was the best place we have ever stayed at throughout all our travel adventures! Everything was so perfect from the food, the view, the location and what it offered. Breakfast was served in a timely manor and it was delicious. The staff made you feel like family there as they were so friendly and catered to our every need. The location was quiet away from the crowds which we loved but it was still close to the towns. They have a parking lot with lots of parking space so no trying to find parking. We will definitely be back to stay!

The views, the staff, the service, the hotel. Everything about this stay was perfect!! We were here for honeymoon and we couldn’t have wished for a better experience! Breakfast on our private terrace every morning was such an amazing touch! If you come to Santorini, this is the place to stay! The best views in town 100%!

We stayed in the Perfola Suite for the first part of our honeymoon and honestly cannot recommend it enough. The location, the view, the decor and the general vibe of the hotel are just so special. There is nowhere better on the island to watch the famous Santorini sunsets with a glass of Greek fizz! Sandy and the team could not do enough for us - they were attentive without being at all stuffy and just made the Vasilicos experience. Sandy also somehow secured reservations at some of the top restaurants on the island (we had been told there was a 3 month waitlist!) and also organised a lovely couples massage and private boat trip for us (both of which were amazing). We had 2 meals on our unbelievable terrace which were some of the best meals we had in Greece - Yannis is so talented and takes such pride in his food. We can’t thank you enough and can’t wait to come back!

Dear Hatty1991, thank you for your warm words - The Vasilicos used to be a private house, a holiday home, and I think that that is the feeling you picked up - we do not think of ourselves as a hotel, rather in our hearts we are still a summer house that hosts friends from all over the world. Thank you so much for choosing us for your special holiday, we hope to welcome you again on an anniversary! Warmest wishes, Daphne

We recently returned home from our 5 week European honeymoon, this was our last stop along the way and what a way to finish! Out of the 8 different places we stayed, this hotel trumped them all. Everything about the Vasilicos is perfect but it is also the staff who really make it memorable. Sandy and the team do the most amazing job and they really care about your experience at the hotel. The rooms are beautiful and food is just amazing. From being served breakfast on your terrace in the morning to a sunset dinner with the most amazing food… the pool… and THE VIEW. The hotel is also so quiet and peaceful with Imerovigli being such a great location. We will certainly be back one day and have been recommending it to everyone we know.

The Vasilicos was the absolute perfect spot for my wife and I on our honeymoon. We were excited to head to Santorini and take in the sights, food and everything else the island has to offer. About a month prior to our arrival, we were contacted by Sandy and asked about a number of details to make our stay better. She wanted to know everything from what activities we wanted to do both on and off the hotel property to what pillow type and room temperature we preferred. From there Sandy helped us book a couple reservations and lock down on our itinerary. Once we arrived, we were greeted with a refreshing drink and again talked through our plans with Sandy. She helped us plan more of our meals and gave some great restaurant recommendations and even booked our reservations. After that, we went to our room. We opted for the welcome food and drinks and had those delivered to us on our patio. We were able to take an amazing view of the Caldera and enjoy some food and wine. Our room was even better in person than the pictures online. Throughout the rest of our stay, Kyriakos, both Chrises and the rest of the Vasilicos team made sure that we had the best time possible. The entire staff was very friendly and were more than happy to answer any question we had or even just have a nice chat about the island, Greek culture and how their day was going. Everyone was so nice to us and made us feel welcome and like friends. Additionally, Sandy continued to check on us to make sure that we had all of the restaurant reservations that we needed. We also ate a few meals (in addition to the daily breakfast) and had more than a few drinks at the hotel and the food/drinks and service were both incredible. Whether it was the chef team who took note of what we liked, didn’t like and were curious about or if it was Kyriakos mixing up his Mastika Mojito, everything fit our needs perfectly. We had a candlelit dinner on our private terrace that with the back drop of one of the famous Santorini sunsets and it was a highlight of the trip. The chef even stopped by after dinner to chat about the meal, Greek cuisine in general and also shared his favorite meal that his mother makes for him. I cannot stress enough about the amazing service we received. The staff was more than willing to help us figure out our day each morning, recommend a souvlaki spot to stop by while strolling through Fira and bring some complimentary ice cream bars on a hot afternoon. We highly recommend and will be going back on a return trip.

We stayed at the Vasilicos on our honeymoon and I can't say enough amazing things about the staff and the hotel. We had incredible views, the staff did everything to make us feel so accommodated. Sandy and crew went above and beyond and truly made us feel like we were family. We loved hanging at the hotel so much there were times where it was hard for us to leave for our activities off of the resort! Sandy made us incredible reservations, gave us the best recommendations and checked in on us constantly. We left with 2 Vasilicos blankets because we want them as keepsakes forever. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone, it was beyond our wildest dreams.
