We couldn't believe this was the same hotel we saw on the internet. The room we had was nothing like the picture. The view were great and so was the pool, but the rooms were a huge disappointment. I complained and they did not move us. Very frustrating.

We had room 202. I don't think there is a smaller room anywhere in the complex. The one beside us was larger, with a couch. The one the other side of us had a loft, and four people could stay in that room. In our room, we couldn't even get by each other at the end of the bed. Way too small! There was a desk in the corner, but no way to put a chair in there. The fridge in the corner was nice to have for our Mythos and wine. No room for anything else, including storing our suitcases.
Bathroom was blue tile, and only two small lights above the mirror. Made it very dark. Also, the mirror was set so low, we couldn't even see anything above our chests while standing at the sink.
Despite all the drawbacks of the room, we loved staying here. We just spent as little time as possible in the room. The breakfast was great, and lots of variety. Liked that you could eat out on the balcony with the amazing views.
The pool is on the bottom level. There are numerous stairs to get there, and you must be careful! Very few of them have any railings, and the stairs can be slippery from wet bathers. Our room was pretty much in the middle of the complex, so we never had to go very far down for the pool, or very far up to the lobby.
The best thing about the Tzekos Villas is the pool bar server, Spiros by name. I hope I got the spelling right! He is amazing, and works tirelessly all day long to make everyone comfortable. And he cooks too! He suggested some wine for us, and when we brought the bottle to the pool (we went to the supermarket to purchase it), he even supplied us with proper wine glasses, along with some goodies to eat along with the wine. You can tell he really enjoys his job and he takes a lot of pride in it as well.
The menu at the pool is snack only type things, but the burger is yummy, and the presentation is wonderful too. The prices are very reasonable as well.
The views of course, are stunning. We were lucky one afternoon to be treated to a show of three hang gliders that took off from the property next door. And of course, it is fun to watch all the comings and goings of the cruise ships.
If we were ever to return to Santorini, I would not mind staying here again, but I would be looking for a bigger room for sure!

Room Tip: Try to get one in the 2nd or 3rd "floor". That way you don't have to walk so many ste...

Tzekos Villas is located in one of the best viewpoints on the island and we can only recommend it. Central location, friendly staff, fair prices for what it is and good facilities and pool. We were upgraded because it was overbooked so we even had our own little bathtub on the balcony, watching the sunset from there was amazing!

Everything was excellent and the location was breathtaking.
The food at the pool was amazing considering that it was one guy doing drinks and food.
There are some steep steps to climb but the porters are really helpful with bags.

So happy I stated here...

My room was a split level room with my own private spa and the most stunning view of the volcano! I really did not expect such a beautiful place...

I was only disappointed that my toilet was running since I entered the room till I left and after being told it will be looked at, nothing. But it was not that great a deal. The place is a short walk to everything but thankfully not I the heart of everything

The pool area is spectacular for those famous santorini sunsets!

We had a fantastic time staying here for 1 week in August.Great service, great views, great location, short walk to the town. It was private yet centrally located.The rooms are also so great, even so much bigger than what we actually needed. The breakfast was awesome too,
It is definitely the place to stay if you are looking for a romantic and quiet getaway! I would recommend them to anyone!

Thank you Tzekos Villas!

great location just moments from the center of fira, with absolutely gorgeous views. the pool is awesome, and the staff are amazing! so helpful and sincerely friendly! they carried our heavy suitcases up and down all the stairs for us. it's a bit of a honeymoon location, but still a great stay.
