I've spent one of my best days in this hotel. It is perfectly located, 2 minutes drive to Fira, close to Ia and the several beaches of the Island.
The hotel itslef is very nice ; the it is calm and the swimming pool is a real advantage, especially for the rates of the hotel !

But most of it, I seldom saw such friendly owners. They're always there for you, and try to make your stay unforgettable. Those people have understood the basics of the job, and it is (unfortunately) something that have disappeared. They transmit their kindness to all the staff, from the housemaid to the bartender ; everyone is wonderful.
I left the hotel with not only an amazing stay (the island is also amazing), but with great memories and new friends.

Don't miss it !

This place is incredible. The rooms are like 5 star villa suites, but only cost 15 Euro a night. The owner (Poppy) is so genuinely sweet and helpful that she gave me free food every time I walked into the reception to ask a question, and then a bottle of wine upon leaving. The location is great, far enough from town to escape tourists but it has its own bus stop. There's a pool and a bar that play music until pretty late but it's not hard to sleep. Anyone of any age staying in Santorini should stay at Villa Manos. It's by all accounts incredible.

Villa Manos is an amazing hotel. Poppy the owner right away made us feel at home with a meal and showed us to the room. Very clean, close to Fira and if you need to go anywhere Poppy will make it happen! They go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and at home. The pool and pool bar are also a great bonus plus the fabulous view. I would definitely recommend Villa Manos to anyone who is traveling to Santorini. I will definitely be back! Also Poppy gave us a parting gift with wine! Choose villa manos!

Villa manos is an amzing hostel. I felt extremely welcome and at home right off the bat ! The owners and everyone there treated us like family. The rooms were really clean and the pool was great. Hanging out at the bar with everyone at the hostel and getting to know other travelers as well as the staff was a great experience!! By the end of our stay we all felt like old friends and family !

Unfortunately, I only stayed a few days here. Ms. Poppy and staff made my friend and I feel so at home that we didn't want to leave! We were welcomed with a hot meal (which is a huge deal when you've just traveled and you're starving and you're not acquainted with the area yet), our room was big and very clean, and everyone working there was amazing. The pool was gorgeous, there was a bar, and you could order in food, so you never had to leave! And if you did leave, the bus stop was a 30-second walk away. The place may be located just outside of Fira, but the buses that pass by go to Perissa, Fira, and Oia anyway (plus pickup and drop-off to the port). And for the service and the quality of the stay, it's worth it to stay here. I would recommend Villa Manos to anyone and everyone.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper levels have balconies overlooking the pool and tables, which is really nice.

Two of my girlfriends and I stayed there last week while on a tour of the Greek islands. The transportation to and from the airport was provided and saved us a lot of money not having to pay for a cab. Poppy and her husband were such great hosts and made us feel right at home. Breakfast each morning was delicious and we were always greeted with a smile and cup of coffee. Poppy recommended a tour that gave us a great taste of the beautiful island of Santorini. The rooms were simple and clean, and the pool area was amazing! Although it is a decent walk to Fira, the bus stop is a 2 minute walk. They sent us with a farewell bottle of wine that we enjoyed the following night on our visit to Mykonos. We will definitely be returning to Villa Manos someday!
