My husband and I stayed in Alexander Villas for 1 night. We had originally planned to stay in Meli Meli but due to a booking error, they "upgraded" us to a junior suite in a different hotel. We were excited about the upgrade until we saw the room. Don't be fooled by the pictures on their website or on Booking.com. The pool is ridiculously small; the pictures of the pool on their website are distorted to make it appear larger. Our room was on the small side for a junior suite and the bedroom seemed sticky and a little dirty. I will say, however, that the bathroom was very large and disproportionally nicer than the bedroom itself. We were told that we had Wi-Fi at check-in but learned that the connection didn't work at all.
In terms of service, management is pretty bad. First, Alexander Villas doesn't have a front desk. You have to check-in at the front-desk of one of their other properties. I have no idea how you would learn this information on your own. Additionally, no one ever offered to help us with our bags even when they saw us struggling with them. Even when we booked transportation to the port the next day, they never asked us if we would need help with our luggage.
On the positive side, the view of the caldera from our room was beautiful and breakfast is top notch. You get to choose your menu from a list of items (I recommend the Greek Omelet-it was super tasty) and have the option to eat in your room or on the terrace of one of their other properties. All in all, if we had actually spent 280euros on the room ourselves, we would have been extremely disappointed.
One last thing, if at all possible, I would skip this whole town altogether. Maybe I'm biased because we had just come from Oia which is lively and vibrant, but we found the town completely void of any personality. It was eerily quiet and there wasn't a lot to do
In summary, look elsewhere-this place is not worth the money.
