My wife and myself just returned from Santorini where we had an overbooking problem with another hotel. They moved us to Ilioperato and we have stayed in a four persons apartment in the upper terrace for the first 3 nights. The site is relaxing and the overview on the Caldera is excellent. The position is fantastic to appreciate the sunset and Oia in teh distance. Thanks to the three sisters who are managing this hotel, we could stay the whole week in Ilioperato, without moving to the other hotel and spoiling out short holiday, even though we needed to move in other different apartments. But this was our choice to avoid to leave the excellent position. So we had the opportunity to stay in 4 different apartments and all of them were really nice, even if smaller than the first one (for 2 persons). The last one was on the Caldera with Jacuzzi just below the window! The three sisters helped us to minimize the disturbance of moving the baggage from one room to other so we could enjoy our vacation. The position is giving the opportunity to travel around the island by a rented car and go everywhere in a relative short time. I would recommend to select this hotel if you wish to have nice rooms, excellent view and very much helping service to solve your probems,if any. Giorgio and Marta

Room Tip: If you don't have vertigo problems, select the Junior suites on the Caldera! However, also from...

It's hard to think of a title when Ilioperato offers so much to the traveller. We returned yesterday from a week at the apartments with incredible views and honestly don't think anywhere else on Santorini which would offer the same experience or views with ideal location for getting around. Accommodation in Firostefani and Fira will usually entail being overlooked continually by passers by..... This is the side of the island you want to stay on - not the beaches on the other side away from the incredible views of the caldera and round in Oia bus loads of tourists would bother you as well as the fact you are that bit further away from all the other sights of the island.

Here you are slightly away from the 'buzz' of Fira but it's accessible by a half hour walk and there are LOVELY restaurants nearby in Imerovigli itself as well as a restaurant serving basic foods, platters and salads at Ilioperato. The view from here feels like it's your own personal vantage point. Sunsets amazing and sunrise is visible from the entrance to the hotel at the other side of island.

Flora and her sisters took a personal interest in us and our experience and activities on our holiday and arranged car hire and sunset cruises and transfers to and from airport. The accommodation is not five star luxury but the service and views and amenities are first class. The facilities are VERY clean, room service is excellent, tasteful decoration inkeeping with the traditional aspect of the hotel and it's split across many levels adding to the character of the place.

Couldn't recommend this enough. Worth every penny when you look out your window!

Room Tip: The junior suites are more expensive but there are no passers by, you have nothing below you but cli...

We recently spend 2 nights an Ilioperato apartments and had a wonderful stay. The view from the property is pretty much unbeatable and you won't run into big crowds sightseeing in front of the property (like in Fira.) Flora and her sisters (the owners) are lovely and incredibly helpful. They give you a daily newsletter during breakfast with great ideas of what to do in the island and help out with dinner reservations, car rental and booking tours. The rooms are not luxurious but definitely clean and spacious. Breakfast is made by Flora's sister every morning and is filled with wonderful fresh fruit options and light crepes. Overall, we had a great experience at this hotel.

We travelled through here in Mid/late May, just as the temperatures were starting to warm up.

I chose Ilioperato due to a combination of good reviews on TA and price. It is expensive (compared to other Islands) no matter where you stay in a Santorini, but all cliff side hotels get the same view, so price was important.

As noted in previous reviews, this is a family run hotel, which suited us fine. Nothing was too much trouble: from the very first email correspondence, down to the day of our departure when we were taking a late (6 pm) ferry, so wanted to gang around the pool.

Also, as noted previously, Imerovigli is a little quieter than the other villages, but still close by (within a 20-30 minute walk to the busy tourist area).

As for the steps - the whole island is covered in steps! If your mobility is limited, then take serious care on which hotel you choose. Or, maybe this isn't the island for you.

I haven't stayed at any other properties, so I can't comment on them, but I totally recommend Ilioperato as a warm and friendly place to stay whilst on Santorini.

Wow! Where to start? From the breathtaking view as you step onto this property for the first time, which just gets better with each day.
The apartments are all traditionally decorated with excellent room service. Every terrace you step onto has beautiful Caladera views.
Waking up in the morning and stepping up or down to the lounge where breakfast is served. At breakfast you receive a local newsletter with a friendly smile.
My wife and I have enjoyed eight perfect days at Illioperato, and would strongly recommend this family run establishment.
We would like to thank Flora, Rosa and Joanna for making our Santorini holiday perfect!

We have been guest in Imerovigli since 5 years. Looking always for a BETTER place to stay, with private balcony (which is a must) -we this year booked at the Ilioperate. We have seen the hotel several times while being guests in the neighbourhood. The location is one of the best in Imerovigli as you can see the sunset in a perfect angle (90° to the front line ;-)). Unfortunately the staff is not professional enough to handle minor problems as unchanged towels, poor breakfast, cold eggs. Not a big deal - but constantly. The advantage of being a family driven hotel is lost by being a family driven hotel. The privacy is ZERO as the next guest is just a meter distant (and fully visible). Good for making social studies of the guests next to you; phone calls sex and TV preferences included.

Room Tip: Stay one or two night to enjoy the PERFECT view into the caldera and the sunset.
