“Excellent sunset view”
Reviewed September 17, 2011

Being able to enjoy the Oia sunset from the private balcony of our room made it the best experience we had while staying on the island. We had a great time while staying at the hotel and everyone at the hotel was very pleasant and helpful. Our only "complaints" would be that the bathroom towels and the shower curtain seriously need to be updated, and the toilet seat cover that kept falling down on you was also a real pain.

My daughter and I recently stayed at the Golden Sunset Villas and it was wonderful. The owner and all the staff were incredibly nice and service oriented. The rooms were very clean and air conditioned. It is truly the best place to view the amazing sunsets! It is walking distance to everything in Oai, but just far enough to be away from the middle of town where it can get more crowded and noisy. There is access to a nearby pool that also has amazing views of the water. We would definitely go back.

We stayed in the windmill and could not believe our eyes when we saw the view from there. It was amazing to put it mildly. The windmill itself was not luxourious but when you stepped outside on to the patio that completely surrounds it - WOW! We had a perfect view of the sunset and this huge patio all to ourselves. We had 2 children, ages 7 & 9 with us, and I wished the stairs in the windmill had railing on both sides but the kids were thrilled to be there. The location could not be beat - right next to all the restaurants. The staff was incredibly nice - I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: The windmill has a HUGE patio with sunset views

Listen, hundred of daily Oia-sunset visitors cannot have it wrong : this is the BEST place on the whole island especially when it comes to relaxation ! Kyriakos (hotel owner) is around since '90s. He is very kind and helpful person. I've been to this island many times and stayed in this hotel few. Each one of my experiencies was excellent. And remember: the mill (former bar and currently room to rent) you see there is one of the most famous mill on earth !

The couple who own and manage the hotel really love their job.
A small hotel which you can be treated like you were in a family house. Take advantage of the tips from them to explore the island, some hidden restaurants are specular!

We stayed for 5 nights in the windmill (one of only 2 in the area) which was amazing. The lady at reception spoke perfect english and was very experienced, friendly and helpful. We had a beautiful sunset every night in our own private balcony where tourists were trying to lean on fences and crowded around doorways for at least an hour beforehand to get a good photo. The cleaning lady came every day and left everything very clean and spotless, and she was very polite as well. Overall we had an amazing and so far the best Greek experience in Oia and at this hotel.
If you have difficulty with steep steps and stairs, this may not be for you. There are steep stone steps inside the windmill to get to the first leve, and then a small ladder to get to the top leve. However the rooms do not feel cramped and the beds are comfortable.

The magnificent view is the hotel's only real asset and the owners exploit it to the full. We spent 4 nights in the hotel in July 2010 - it was our third trip to this island. We were quite disappointed to find our "cave" room damp, cheaply furnished and cold at night. Rotten smell was present throughout our stay. Our kids' beds did not have any blankets at all, and thin sheets were laid straight onto the slippery mattresses. The was an extra blanket on the shelf but it looked too dirty to use. The Spartan and dated decor of the room reminded us of a youth hostel, not a resort hotel that charges over 200 euros a night. The bathoom was in need for redecoration and so tiny that taking a shower was not only an unpleasant experience but also a technically challenging one, especially as the shower head could not even be fixed onto the wall and water kept spilling all over the place. The washing basin was smaller than a shoe box, hence brushing teeth or rinsing a swimming suit required some skills in order to avoid a mess. Breakfast was basic and unappetising - one kind of bread rolls, one type of cereal, cheap sandwich sliced cheese, hard boiled eggs.... greek yogurt saved us every morning! Others already mentioned that the hotel does not have a pool. However, at the reception they will happily give you an old washed towel of undetectable colour to use at the pool near by, if you ask for one. In conclusion, unless you are an unpretentious traveller, this place is not great value for money, even for an expensive island like Santorini.
