“Incessantly excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

I was on holiday with a group of friends (4 of us) and we stopped by in Santorini for a day and a half on our way back from Ios. Costa Marina Villas is a charming hotel, located at the heart of Fira. The rooms are lovely, airy, with comfortable beds and tea-making facilities. However, what really made the difference were the girls at the reception - including Marina herself! They were the epitome of friendliness, they went out of their way to help and, the day we arrived, they mapped out a mini walking tour of the northern part of the island for me. We had to leave at 4.30am on our day of departure, and Marina was awake to say goodbye and wish us a good flight home!
Something else worth mentioning is the 10% discount at the restaurant (Pelican) that is partnered with the hotel and is situated just off the central square of Fira. We ate there the first evening and we couldn't bring ourselves to leave!
Overall, a well-deserved full marks to Costa Marina - we will definitely be back!

My girlfriend and I stayed here on the advice of fellow trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. It's location in Fira and actually has a nice sunrise view (assuming you're up at 5 a.m.)

But the best part was Marina, who runs the place and goes out of her way to help in any way she can. When we checked in, she spent probably 45 minutes showing us on a map all the best places to visit and eat on the island. She really improved our trip and always quickly responded to our emails beforehand.

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the "new" rooms which I think were built in 2013. They were very clea...

Very reasonably priced lodging in a great location! The owners are so nice and friendly! Marina treated us like family. They offer great suggestions for your activities- which makes sense because they also operate a travel agency. They gave us a 10% off discount card to their restaurant (short walk from the hotel), which is VERY good. If we go to Santorini again, we'll definitely stay at Costa Marina!

We only stayed one night in Fira but wished we could have stayed longer. The owners of this hotel are extremely welcoming and rightfully proud of their establishment and it's lovely well tended grounds. The room itself was beautiful and the bathroom stunning! We were given a map and advised where to explore in the brief time we had, and given recommendations about where to eat later on. Nothing was too much trouble, and we enjoyed an extremely comfortable stay.

Room Tip: The new rooms are beautifully designed.

We stayed 3 nights at The Costa Marina and could not fault it.
Lovely rooms , a balcony with a pleasant view , well kept gardens , more than adequate breakfast , close to the town but far enough away to be very quite and Maria and Marina on reception and around the hotel were exceptional.

My husband and I stayed at Costa Marina on a whirlwind trip to Santorini. Marina was helpful from the moment I booked the hotel by emailing with me to help answer my questions before we arrived. She helped us with everything we needed to have an enjoyable time and made us feel so welcome. The room was absolutely beautiful, clean and comfortable. The hotel itself was in a perfect location and we hope to one day be back, thanks Marina!

This was a wonderful place to stay in Santorini for many reasons, but the foremost reason is Marina. When we arrived she spent almost an hour with us mapping out all the best restaurants, wineries, and everything else we wanted to see. Every recommendation was excellent and we really felt like we got as much out of our limited time on the island as possible. The rooms and grounds were beautiful and clean. The location is excellent, a 5 minute walk to the commercial area where most of the shops and restaurants are located. Thank you Marina for a wonderful stay and we will definitely be back on our next visit to Santorini!
