A very quick "thumbs up" for Nomikos Villas, where my wife and I stayed - late in May 2014.

Nomikos is a neat and tidy set of apartments - with WiFi, a bar, pool and Jacuzzi. The staff at Nomikos are more than friendly. Our apartment had its own balcony area, so each morning we enjoyed the included breakfast - looking out to the Caldera. In fact, you overlook the Caldera wherever you're positioned at Nomikos Villas.

Nomikos is a short walk from loads of restaurants, shops, supermarkets and various hire car outlets. There are also buses and taxis available to explore the island and many boat tours to choose from.

Thanks Nomikos for a great stay!

The location was excellent: the views were awesome!, the breakfast was very good, served in the swiming pool terrace, people was very kind and friendly and the room was very big. The only little bad thing is that the rooms had humidity , but not a real problem. Good deal!

Spectacular views with this hotel and location is good! Rooms were very small and bathrooms need upgrading as they do not have shower holder. Breakfast was adequate and great service with it brought to the balcony.

This hotel is prime position for stunning views and sunsets. Saw many weddings close by which was beautiful to see. The room was cool/interesting as the bed went up small stairs and the bottom consisted of the bathroom and lounge, kitchenette. Outside we had a beautiful breakfast view of santorini and the volcano. Would definitely go back. Bar staff were great to chat with. Minimal conversation from other staff.

We stayed at nomikos villas for 7 nights as the last leg of our honeymoon and couldn't fault it in any way. The rooms were clean and tidy the views were the best we found on the island the location was perfect but the real stand out out for us was the staff. They were all so helpful and friendly and made us feel like we were part of their little 'family'. Giga carries the bags (he is very strong) and also delivers a delicious breakfast in the morning. Nicoletta was extremely helpful and made many phone calls to confirm our transfers and tours for us and was so cheerful all the time it was catching. And Christos behind the bar, well what can we say he is the mojito master there is nobody who makes them as good as Chris he was so friendly and he was the main reason we spent most of our nights at the bar watching the World Cup and enjoying the hospitality. All the staff we encountered in our time there made us feel so welcome and nothing was to hard all you had to do was ask and it was done for you in a flash. All in all I would give a higher score if I could we have taken home many happy memories that will last forever and we really feel like we have made some friends for life.

Literally every room has a beautiful caldera view, ut then again so does just about every hotel in Firastefani. I was told in advance that Santorini is the most expensive of the greek Islands and would have to agree. We paid way too much for way too little. Although the breakfasts are fabulous!

Room Tip: As previous posters have indicated Rooms directly at the pool provide absolutely no privacy.

We stayed at Nomikos Villas for 3 nights in late May. Now I'll start with the good points ..

The view is sensational, you only have to look at the traveller photos to see that. Breakfasts were nice, varied components nicely served on a tray. Chris the barman was great and made some great cocktails.

Now the not so good ...

We were in Room 6 now I am not sure if our room was the worst, (well I hope was none worse than ours), but it was almost unliveable. Now its true our room was described in our itinerary as 'Double Apartment by the Pool'. What I didn't appreciate was that the pool was literally 1.2m from our front door. So when the pool was in use we had no privacy and had to keep the door closed.

The room had 2 small windows, so small that it made the room claustrophobic, again due to the noise from the pool we had to keep these closed.

There is a pool bar located on the other side of patio area. On a couple of nights this was still going strong at 1:00am so good luck if you are light sleeper or want/need an early night.

The Nomikos Villas websites mentioned a fully fitted kitchenette. Well we had a small fridge, 2 glasses, 2 mugs but no kettle and no other kitchen components.

But by far the worst part of the room was the bed. Now the room is narrow, so narrow in fact that the bed hardy fits. It had a steel '4 poster' type frame around with scrolling along the ends so you can't get on the bed from the bottom only from the side. This frame is not part of the bed itself was I assume purely for decorative purposes. The problem here is there is less than 30 cm between the frame and the wall on each side. Now this might be fine for a size 6 model but for a couple of middle aged slightly overweight people this was a real struggle for us to 'suck in our bellies' and squeeze past each time. This is not something guests should have to endure on holiday, (see my photos).

Of course we approached the receptionist asking to be moved to another room was were told they were full and none were available and being there only 3 days we decided to suffer but it was not a happy experience for us..

Rooms 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 all lead directly on to the pool area. If you wish to stay at Nomikos Villas I would get some written confirmation as to which room you will be allocated. Choose room 6 at your peril ........

Room Tip: Avoid room 6 like the plague ..
