Irini's Villas Resort
Reviewed September 17, 2012

we spent 4 days with my wife on irinis, we had de room 8, is it perfect because it has its own entry appart from the others rooms, so totally independent, the price was very reasonable and the view to the caldera its just AMAZING, just for the view this hotel is totally worth it, however the facilities are quite old. The breakfast included was ok, although very limited but with the plus that it is served right in your private balcony seeing the caldera.

I was staying at this hotel with my husband in august and i had made the booking well in advance in March. Had sent a lot of mails too as a reminder to my reservation and the mails were received and replied back too confirming my stay.
Unfortunately, when we reached here, the guy at the reception was Albert .As many other people have said here, he started making us walk to some other place away from his hotel and gave us a small room, which had a kitchenette and there was a small ladder which led to the bedroom.
I told him, this was not the room that we booked and it dosent look like a part of Irinis villa. But he argued and was so rude that he did not agree to us and said that this is the only room he has. After a point he was so very rude that we stopped talking to him and we had no choice but to accomodate ourself in that room. Next day, we realised that the room was a part of the hotel called "Verandah view" but noone from irinis villa or verandah view accepted this.
The pool shown in the photos is not a pool at all. Its a kids playing area rather. So, dont be fooled by the photograph.

finally we thought, we shud forget about that guy and enjoy the holiday. we started settling down into the room.

The next morning, another lady (owner of the veranda view) comes at our room saying that we will have to vacate the room because they are changing our room.

We got so very annoyed that what is happening here. We went down to the reception and had a huge fight with the lady at the reception(Rita is her name). During that time we realised that they had done the same thing to many other families who had booked this hotel because 2 more families were standing there and having a fight with her on the same issue.

Ultimately, she sent us to another resort and another room and we spent the rest of ur holiday there. We changed our focus from irinis villa to the island so that we could save the remaining part of the holiday. But Irinis villa is the worst hotel i have experienced so far.

Please do not stay at this hotel if you want to save your vacation. There are many many other better options around which are far better than this hotel and every hotel will provide a gud view because the location of Imerrovigli is like that, that you cannot miss the view.

So, dont book irinis villa for the view. you can find many many other better hotels around at the same price and view but better hospitality.

Room Tip: Do not book this hotel

We booked through Hostelbookers for four nights, for our honeymoon, I sent an email to the hotel to let them know that it was very important to treat us well.
We arrived at the hotel and were diverted to another hotel because they were overbooked, the reason for the deviation is that other customers had paid more for the room. What a humiliation for us. the hotel that we diverted to the first 2 nights was a disaster (SPIOLITICA HOTEL) The room was tiny with ceilings less than 180 cm.
The next two nights were in a room without sea view, without private balcony,( we book a room with private balcony,sea view,continental breackfast,...) breakfast was horrrible, and the treatment of employees unprofessional.
We do not recommend this hotel under any circumstances, I recommend you visit Santorini, but not this hotel.

You can see a fantastic view of white-washed villas/apartments on top of cliffs and caldera view. 20-25 minute walk to central town - Fira. There's a nearby supermarket, rent-a-car/atv shops, wine shop, restaurants. Peaceful place - not so crowded.

My friend and I went there last July, they provide the transportation service to the hotel, which many hotel also have. I personally think that this hotel is suitable for relaxing. I book this hotel from booking.com, the room that i got is very big with two private balcony, they also have kitchen facility, and breakfast. However, there is some problem with air con, and not 24 hour reception.

we spent few days in Santorini and we stayed at Irini's. we arrived late on night , as we had advised , but nobody was there to whait for us. only few words in a window..., YOUR ROOM IS number 9 OVER THE RECEPTION THE KEY IS ON THE DOOR. we spent more than 30 minuts to find it going up and down the stone stairs!. no informations at the arrival no informations into the room. the first morning we asked for the breackfast 15 minuts in late and we lost it! we lost the warm water and the nescafe...bread and jam...very easy to do!!. and no place to have breackfast around, only restaurants. we went to the supermarket. but the worst thing was the room, without windows, onlt the door and a little window over the door. inside the room was stinky because of no air circulation. the air conditioner was very very noisy and the refrigerator too. we have too say that in the main house the rooms looked better with nice see view.
