I don't normally take the time to write reviews, but Poppy deserved it. My 2 girlfriends and I stayed 3 nights at Villa Manos and it was an amazing experience. Poppy is an amazing host and all staff are friendly and great. The hotel is beautiful and everything is clean and well kept. The pool is beautiful, over looking the sea with lots of chairs and a pool bar. Overall, amazing stay at Poppy's Villa Manos.

Although we got off on the wrong foot with Poppy (TIP, ensure she confirms her pickup with you, we emailed and though she had, but we were sorely mistaken), our stay at Villa Manos was lovely. The pool area is beautiful, the food is great, although the prices are fairly steep for no view/in house service. The location however is really tough. It's definitely in the suburbs of Santorini. There are restaurants and a great supermarket around 10 minutes walk away, although the walk is dangerous - you are literally walking on a road, not a footpath. We love staying in suburban areas and walking to the attractions and restaurants, however this walk was so busy (car zooming by, bad tourist drivers and huge luxury buses taking up more than a lanes worth of space) make you feel really uncomfortable as you walk. We had to keep switching sides of the road to be on the safest side. Although this is obviously no within the hotel's control, the location makes this place very difficult. To combat their poor location, they can call restaurants who offer take away and have them deliver although you are limited to the restaurants that provide this service. if we literally just came to Santorini to sit by a pool, then this would have been the place, but if you want to dine out, shop or go to the beach, stay in town, it's a little more pricey, but you will save on the cost of bus fares and having more choice for cheaper food. *the bus stop is right across form the road, this leads into town and to the beaches, but is pricey to catch the bus!!

Room Tip: The rooms on the top floor have semi water views.

Staying at Villa Manos was such a wonderful experience. The villa and the grounds are absolutely beautiful and everything is very clean. I felt like I was at a resort! Poppy is warm, gracious, and generous - she truly takes care of you and answers any questions there may be. This villa is a grew choice and you won't be sorry about the location. Its just a short walk away from Fira the main town and is located right near to the bus station so everything is easily accessible. Thank you for a wonderful stay :)

These rooms are simple yet nice and clean. The pool and bar is great, the breakfast option is worth it and the staff are all helpful and friendly. Any extras such as atv/scooter hire, taxis, laundry are all easily organised by the staff and everything is on time and well organised. The price is definitely fair and I would recommend this place to anyone who is happy to stay somewhere affordable, clean and simple.

A great place to stay, quiet and out of town. Rooms were very cute, comfortable beds. Pool is wonderful (the music can get a little loud - but sometimes that's what people want!), staff friendly. We loved having a jug and a few utensils in the room so we could make our own cup's of tea and simple breakfast (don't drink the water out of the taps in Santorini!). The only thing that is a little bit of a let down is the walk into the closest town, although not far the road is very narrow - not recommended if you have young children. Also, shop around a little for prices, I noticed after I booked directly with the hotel that we could have booked through booking.com and paid a little less.

My 4 yrs old daugther Sara and I jumped on a plane from Norway to Santorini. We stayed a week at the Villa Manos Hotel. A great place! Really a nice place. The owners were great! They took very good care of us. We recommend this place to everyone going to Santorini.

STAY HERE! you won't regret it. Poppy, the owner and her husband are some of the most wonderful people we met on our trip. They will go way out of their way to ensure that you get what you want out of your time on Santorini. Some of the things that stood out the most were: the room was extremely nice and clean, the furnishings unique and pleasant, the pool was nice and the pool bar played continuous soothing music. ATV and scooter rental arrangements are possible through the hotel and someone from the rental center can pick you up. Futhermore, you can leave your atv/scooter at the resort when you are done and someone will return it for you. Poppy gave us a bottle of delicious wine. There is the option to order in food from a nearby restaurant - the food is delicious and there is no delivery charge. Poppy made the call for us and put through our order. The transportation to and from the port is a huge plus as you have to transfer in Fira if you are taking a bus. This was our favorite hotel, miss it already!

Room Tip: Top floor with balcony facing the courtyard/pool - nice view and more private than bottom floor
