“Stunning views, beautiful hotel!”
Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 5 nights on our honeymoon and it was beautiful! The view from our room and the pool was stunning. It had a very quiet feel to it but it was only a short walk to nice restaurants and in to Fira. The staff were very helpful in organizing cruises, restaurant recommendations, ferry tickets and a quad bike for us - they made our stay very easy and comfortable. Our room was lovely and spacious and in the traditional architecture of Santorini. Definitely recommend this place for couples, it's the perfect hotel!!

Stayed at this hotel last June and was completely taken aback with the beautiful scenery and views from our room. Definitely a great place for couples to spend together, great proximity to the beaches is a definite plus! The hotel room was clean and spacious and I would definitely go back again the next time I visit Greece. Also the food was delicious!

The hotel is beautifully situated in Imerovigli along the caldera rim. We had a wonderful time during our stay in Santorini, in part due to the friendly and extremely helpful Afroessa staff, who provide information and recommendations for just about anything you could need or want. We hope to be back soon!

The hotel seems a little out of the way when we first arrive but were lost for words when we saw the view at the hotel as we checked in only about 9pm. The view at the hotel was breath taking and amazing.

Eddy was really helpful with our luggage and the manager Ioanna had been very pleasant throughout our 3 nights stay. She's very motherly and extremely helpful with our transfer to airport, giving us key information when we check in. Most of all, as our flight out of Santorini was at night, she allowed us to check out much later. She even gave us a bottle of white wine on our second day to welcome us.

After visiting Fira and Oia (although we enjoyed the scenery of sunset better than in Imerovigli) staying in Afroessa was the best choice. It was much less crowded with more privacy.

Everything was great during our stay except the heater was not working and we were so cold during the first night, but they arranged to fix it very quickly.

We stayed in Room5 and was a little small to open 2 luggages at a time, but it was value for money overall. There are bigger room at different prices though.

Definitely, we strongly recommend this hotel if you're staying at Santorini!

My wife and I had the most wonderful time in this hotel. First off, the staff is extremely warmhearted, caring and welcoming. They helped us get situated, found a car renter for us, recommended the best restaurants on the island... And as they knew we were here to celebrate our first anniversary, they brought us a delicious black forest cake with two roses on the very day of our anniversary. We were deeply touched by the attention!
The hotel itself is truly amazing. Each room is a little white Greek-style house with very nice furbishing. We had our private balcony with a truly breathtaking view on the caldera! The hotel has a swimming pool with the same amazing view.
If we ever have the chance to go back to Santorini we will definitely stay at this hotel again. And we obvisouly recommend it to everyone looking for the perfect stay in Santorini!

Room Tip: We had the room right upstairs of the reception. A beautiful and large one, with a very nice bathroo...

My wife and I stayed at the Afroessa in August 2011 for four nights and I can't say enough good things about the experience (even though I'm just now posting in Jan 2013). We had one of the larger rooms, perched slightly above the pool, and it was plenty private with a sitting area and a deck where we could enjoy ouzo and stunning sunsets. Aliki and her team took all the extra steps to make us feel welcome and at home -- the cafe had decent breakfast and coffee and was really all we needed. It's a bit of a hike to the main part of Imerovigli, but walking off a meal while taking in the views is something I'd categorize as a "good problem" to say the least. I highly recommend Afroessa.

This hotel was amazing. From the service to the view. All rooms are cliffside. We had the room near the pool. It had tiny kitchen with a stove and fridge, we had our own little terrace. The view was to die for. The best sunsets were from imerovigli and this hotel. We went to oia to see the sunset but it was not as nice as watching it from Afroessa. The service was the best and the staff was amazing. They provided us with all the information we needed. They booked our transfers, organized our ATV booking. They carried our luggage up and down the stairs. It was our honeymoon so they gave us a bottle of wine. If you go to santorini island, you have to stay here!!!
