Really nice little spot. A good ten minute walk from the main town but well worth the savings because you stay in a cave house, have a pool for the hot hot afternoons, and a wonderful breakfast and staff. We stayed for three nights and had the hotel arrange for shuttles to and from the port. Even when we missed... More

The villas don't have easy access neither indications on how to get there. Our room (one bedroom sea view) smelled of dump and in fact we had to leave the dehumidifier on throughout the night, which was quite noisy. Absolutely not recommended if you have mobility problems. The place is tranquil, about 25 mins walking to Oia. It is all... More

Beautiful, calm, comfortable, clean, magnificent view both day and night and amazing breakfast ! There isn't enough words to describe Ambelia ! Me, my little brother and my mother had a very pleasant stay, If you are planing your stay in Oia, this is the place to be !

This is a beautiful, comfortable, and clean hotel in a great location! Breakfast is very good and served near the pool with an ocean view. However, it is very hard to find and requires quite a bit of walking and staircases to reach it. Try to arrive with daylight and pack light :)

Place is nice but not very easy...it's 10-15 minutes far from oia and there are a lot of stairs to do. If you don't have good legs maybe this is not the right place but, in santorini the most part of the hotel are innthe same situation, We' ve been only 2 days but we stayed fine. They are very...

Popped here for a couple of extra days in Santorini after leaving Dana villas. Wanted a traditional village no frills and out of the way without being to far of beaten track. If you want this then I can recommend Ambelia. First impressions was not overwhelming, but settle in and the quite tones of nothing hits you fast. In fact... More

This place was really lovely, clean, spacious, had very friendly staff and beautiful views! The breakfast that was provided was really good, normally I tend to always eat out when on holiday but this breakfast was too good to miss. The rooms were really comfy and clean, there were fresh towels everyday and the bed had been done up for... More
