SUnny VIllas is in a great location, which i think is the best in Santorini. It is between Fira and Oia, with an outlook of the afternoon sun and sunet, directly out to sea and the caldera. View is thebest thing about this hotel.
In terms of features, service and facilities Sunny villas does the main things, but not to a very high standard.
it is fine for a 4 day stopover, but there are too many shortcomings to spend longer there.
Very helpful reception - Andreas. he cannot do enough for you and makes you very welcome.
Pool/ restaurant staff also helpful and friendly.
Location and view is perfect.
Rooms are cavelike and quaint. adequate space and basic facilties.
Steps everywhere. Obviously as built on a cliff..
Lots of tourists all day taking photos of the view and looking into your room if door/ window is open. Annoying.
Pool is literally the size of a jacuzzi. You have to swim in circles. No shower. entry via ladders.
Sun deck is tiny and normally full. Deck chairs are very old fashioned, uncomfortable and basic. Cannot lie flat, must sit up all day. only 6 chairs available.
poolside bar is also the kitchen and restaurant. minimal menu choice and often waiter disappears for long times during the day.
Rooms are often full of moisture, humidity and damp. hair and clothes get wet at night.
Bathroom fittings and bedroom furniture is 1970's and old fashioned.
Not all surfaces are clean - e.g. wardrobe shelves were v dusty.
TV is small, old and rubbish. mainly german and greek channels.
Breakfast is very limited selection. mainly just bread, juice and greek yoghurt.
We requested eggs but they were special order and came out all wrong (e.g. bacon served to a vegetarian, and were fried when we asked for scrambled)
Wifi only works near to reception, and there is nowhere to sit with a laptop except for directly next to busy reception desk.
Santorini was very interesting and different to visit, we rented a scooter and explored whole island. Restaurnats are hard to find good ones, even with tripadvisor recommendations! and expensive due to high number of tourists.
Volcano tour is let down as it's just looking at rocks and walking around in high sun heat.
Sunsets were magical.
I would stay elsewhere nxt time, there are loads of similar guest house style B&B's to stay at in Santorini. We are simply used to more luxury for the price.
