We stayed at Afroessa for my husbands birthday and had the most relaxing and welcoming stay. It was just before the start of the peak season so we were upgraded to the best room and given complimentary wine. The staff were wonderful and welcoming -giving excellent advice on what to see and where to eat. You could not ask for a better view and watching the sunsets from your room balcony beats anything at Oia! The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean and nicely decorated with a big walk-in shower.

This was the best hotel I've ever stayed in! The staff is amazing---so helpful, nice and accommodating. They greeted us by our name when we arrived. They were always looking to help and make our stay more enjoyable. The view is incredible. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Santorini!

What a place to stay. Just fantastic views. My room was perfect and looked over the world. The grounds are impeccably clean.
The staff gave the best service. Eddie was great.
Be prepared for a lot of stairs. If that's a problem ask for a room with minimal stairs.

My husband and I read the reviews before booking our stay at afroessa and all the excellent comments came true when we stayed here. From the moment we got to the airport there was 100% excellent service provided. The hotel had arranged a 20€ transfer which was easy and efficient. When we arrived at the hotel the staff was there to greet us, take our bags, and check us in. From that point on anything we needed was provided. Can't say enough about the wonderful staff and service.

The hotel is set in a quiet part of santorini. It is romantic and the view is absolutely breathtaking. I liked the location because we could walk to fira and there is a bus stop close to the hotel to get anywhere else you need to go. We did walk/hike to oia which was beautiful but it takes about 2 hours.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone!

My husband and I stayed here and it was very enjoyable on every level. The rooms are spacious and comfortable plus a few interesting furnishings!! A eclectic mix of items. The staff are very friendly and the hotel is very clean. Breakfast was very good value, plentiful and delicious. This was bought to our room every morning and it was very relaxing to sit on the balcony and enjoy the delicious food and enjoy the wonderful view. All staff were very helpful and accommodating in every way, nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Santorini, Imerovigli is half way between Fira (the capital, awful, very touristy) and Oia (a beautiful part of the world but gets very busy) and staying half way offers the best of what the island has to offer. I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel, location, the staff, Joanna, Hanna, Eddie and the lovely ladies who cleaned and cooked the breakfast, value, cleanliness, couldn't fault anything actually. It was a perfect couple of days and we would love to go back.

Room Tip: all rooms offer a stunning view, room near pool doesnt offer a lot of privacy so if this is an issue...

Can not speak highly enough of this hotel. The owner Joanna, and her family, were very friendly and helpful, especially her recommendations of where to eat. All the rooms had magnificent views. There was a nice pool (with more spectacular views), and a poolside bar. The hotel and its surrounds were very peaceful, though within walking distance to many fine restaurants. A longer walk, (30 minutes) along the old path takes you to the capital Fira.

Santorini itself is a lovely island, and this hotel and the town of Imerovigli was perfect for couples. We will definitely be back.

We chose this hotel because of the Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed! It was better then we expected. We had apartment number 1 which had a more private terrace from which we could sit and look at the view- what a view! Simply stunning. The rooms are nice you get a fridge which is helpful if you want to buy your own lunch & breakfast and eat on your terrace. The pool area is lovely too, and Eddie is usually around if you would like a drink or snack.. or cocktail! Joanna, and Hanna on reception, were really helpful and friendly, they booked a table for dinner for us each night, and gave us directions and recommendations when we decided to go out for a drive (recommend you hire a car- but don't bother with Europcar). We booked the wine tour through the hotel and that was really fun. It was a small group, the guide was really knowledgable and we went to some interesting wineries. We would definitely like to come back!
