Awesome overall experience.
The best caldera and sunset views in the whole island, and we travelled throughout the island. And, it is so quiet at the hotel, you could hear a pin drop at night.Because it is at the end of Imerovigli, it has no lamp posts nearby and guests rely on a flashlight management has so thoughtfully put in each room for late returns.
The studios are small, but very comfortable and immaculately clean.They have adequate,comfortable furniture, comfortable beds, large mirrors, closet and desk space, and a tv in each room. The WC is small but always has warm water, it is clean with ample towels and sufficient toiletries and if you need more you just ask and you get.They also have a tiny but adequate kitchenette with plates,utilities, a small cook stove and fridge, coffee maker etc so one can prepare coffee or small meals(we used them to make our breakfasts and view the caldera from our private terrace.In Santorini, a room is only for sleeping,what with the wonderful views and scenery....Supplies could be bought at a nearby supermarket).Fera is within walking distance along the caldera, if you enjoy walking (about 2km).
For those that complain of the distance from the taxis, it is a 2 minute walk,along cobblestone streets and one has to wear comfortable shoes but it is not an issue,except when one has suitcases to carry. But, it becomes a non-issue, as the owner waits with a porter to carry all your bags to your room down the cliff and does the same when you leave. We carried our suitcases up to the front desk upon leaving and the owner was upset that we did not call him to take them up the steps, but then, carried them all the way to the waiting car.

Santorini is not for the weak footed, walking around cobblestone roads and up and down hills is difficult, so one should expect the hotel to be some distance from the main road.The hotels on the other side of the cliff have on site parking, no walking,but no views, no caldera and no sunset to admire.

The host's father,along with a porter,greeted us at the taxi stop and the porter carried our suitcases to the room. They also treated us with a free drink of our choice (we chose the famous Santorini white wine) and they also supplied us with a large bottle of bottled water.It was hot outside so it was a perfect welcome.

All the apartments have great views.Those that are not directly on the cliff, but rather in it, have their own large terraces above and a nice front terrace with plants. These 2 apartments are very large,suited to large families or groups and are really fantastic because they were used to store wine in the past,when Santorini was not a tourist spot yet,so they offer an unforgettable experience I am sure. The pool is adequate size and deep, with lots of lounge chairs and towels always available there. It is by the edge of the cliff(another unforgettable experience),so I would suggest children not to allowed to swim there without supervision for obvious reasons (children should not be without supervision at any pool anyway).
The owner and staff are wonderful, kind and genuine people who will go out of their way to anticipate guests needs and fulfill them. We are tall, and when the owner realized this, even though we had already prepaid for a studio in full, he offered, at no extra charge,to put us up in a much larger apartment.He even insisted. We declined,because the room was adequate for our needs, and we felt it would not be fare to let this kind man lose out on getting more money from the larger apartment,at a time his country is in financial crisis and they need tourist money, and also,when clearly the number of rooms Prekas has is small anyway so it would have been unfair to take advantage of his kindness.

We travel a lot and have stayed at various hotels worldwide.,At Prekas, we felt like we were home,nothing fake about it & we were impressed every step of the way. I highly and without reservation recommend this place for your next Santorini vacation.We were there for a wedding, but we will visit again soon,and stay at Prekas, this time for a bit longer and have told everyone about their great establishment and service.

Room Tip: All the rooms are fantastic and offer great views. In summer, the closer to the pool, the easier access to it but also the more likelihood of some noise from bathers in midday. If you feel clastrophobic,stay away from the traditional apartments but do stay there if you are adventurous and want the unforgettable experience,of staying INSIDE a cliff(there are no windows inside,because it is inside the cliff).

We searched long and hard for where to stay in Santorini and I'm very happy we stayed in Prekas.

Highlights:
- Unparalleled views of the caldera. Imerovigli is beautiful, and Prekas specifically is situated furthest down the cliff side so you have an unobstructed view of the caldera and sunset.
- Pool. Prekas' pool has a great view of the caldera and about 7 or so lounge chairs. It's a pretty good size, especially compared with a lot of other more expensive nearby hotels which only have small kidney shaped pools.
- Semi private balcony. Every morning we ate breakfast on our semiprivate balcony, equipped with our own table and 2 chairs. I say semi private because it was not blocked from the room next door, but we were rarely out there at the same time. Also a perfect place to watch the sunset.
- Price. We paid less than 100 euros a night, in comparison to other hotels nearby which were 150 plus. Well worth the money, especially given the better amenities we had such as the pool and balcony.

The only bad thing was the bathroom and shower were quite small, but we have come to expect that from most European hotels.

We had the pleasure of staying in these apartments for both nights that we were in Santorini & I can highly recommend them. Not only is the view absolutely amazing but the service from both Father & Son (it's a family run business) was faultless. Nothing was too much trouble for them - in fact, upon my return back to SA I discovered that my souvenir mug I'd bought from Santorini had broken - I emailed Nik & he very kindly not only bought me a replacement mug & the matching espresso mug - but he also mailed them all the way to me & refused to accept any payment for them! Now that is what I call going the extra mile!!
The apartments are perfectly situated & close to everything. Nik went out of his way to assist us with our every wish & nothing was too much trouble for them.
Another huge plus is that the apartments are very reasonably priced :) They are definitely value for money & I can highly recommend them! If I've ever fortunate enough to find myself back in Santorini, I wouldn't hesitate to stay at Prekas Apartments again . . .

What can I say, Prekas Apartments was amazing and we absolutely loved our stay here. Of course it starts with the owners. The level of service and friendliness was unlike anything else that we experience during our trip in Europe. The hotel is a small, family run hotel and you can certainly tell because they really make your stay with them personal. The apartments are clean and have basic accommodations, certainly not a luxury resort, but the views from the hotel are spectacular and I would imagine that you would be hard pressed to find a better view of the caldera or the sunset from any other hotel on the Island. We heard that Oia was the best place to watch the sunset so we tried that, but that sunset and all of the people could not compare in the slightest to the night before where we watched the sunset from our balcony at Prekas. Imerovigli is much quieter and less crowded than Fira or Oia while offering all of the same vistas and amenities. Additionally, there are some fantastic restaurants minutes away from the apartments. All in all, we could not have had a better experience.

- The Good:
Amazing views from this place. Sunsets and sunrises are so beautiful to watch from there.
Our room was right in front the swimming pool. The room was nice and had a fully equipped kitchen. The bathroom was quite small and the shower area did not have a shower curtain, but we got used to that quickly and was not an issue for us.

The staff was friendly. There was someone waiting for us upon arrival to help carry our luggage from the parking area to our rooms. He also helped us when we left. We were impressed with how strong he was going up and down all those stairs with our suitcases. I highly recommend that you tip him. He deserves it.

We also got a welcome drink upon arrival which was nice.

The hotel is in Imerovigli. It's nice and quiet but a bit limited in terms of restaurant. I recommend renting a quad (atv) while in Santorini. It's about 30/35 euros for 24 hrs. You can get to different areas easily, parking is easier than with a car, and it's a lot of fun!

- The Bad:
The stairs leading from the parking area to the hotel/apartment area need to be improved/renovated with more lights added. If you plan to come back late at night, bring a flashlight with you.
Also, the swimming pool is quite deep, so be careful.

- Conclusion:
We really enjoyed our stay at Prekas and Santorini in general. The hotel is nice with great views and great staff. Give it a try!
