We stayed here for 2 days. We chose room facing caldera. The hotel location is very good, walkable distance from Fira, but overlooking the caldera. Views from rooms are breathtaking, also from the pool area the views are almost the same. The hotel is bang on the main road/ stone road pathway, and no steps needed to reach the hotel....

We stayed in Santorini over the Easter Weekend. This was the quiet time in the season before the summer really kicks off on the island. I loved having the freedom and ability to get anywhere on the island with relative ease, not having to battle crowds to see and enjoy the natural beauty of such a place. The staff at...

From the welcome to the farewell, the staff at Villa Ilias were perhaps the friendliest and most helpful my wife and I have encountered. The team seems to be made of true locals, running what feels like a family business, with attention to every aspect of serving their clients. The casually themed breakfasts and happy hours, help with directions to...

This is a VERY long overdue review but it is very well deserved. The staff at Villa Ilias is absolutely incredible. My husband had some coworkers contact them about sending us some cake and champagne for our first night and they gladly made it happen. ALSO, they upgraded us (at no charge) to their newly completed honeymoon suite on the...

My partner and I returned to Santorini after 11 years. We opted to stay at Villa Ilias in Firostefani which was more centrally located. We walked almost everywhere, including a trip along the coast to Ia at the end of the island. The service was amazing. The rooms clean and spacious and they had a pool on their property. Best...

Great stay and friendly staff. Very clean. They serve local hot breakfast so could taste authentic Greek food. It took some time to find the hotel but the owner helped us with the directions even at 10pm. Would definitely stay again in future

The rooms are comfortable and clean. Serviced daily. Breakfast is available each day with an added surprise on the menu which was free of charge. fantastic views from the room over the caldera and the cruise ships coming and going. Situated in a quiet, safe area of Firostefani and within easy walking distance of the main town. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Villa Ilias is near Fira center, it has a stunning view of the town by the pool. You can also enjoy the sunset by the pool. The staff was friendly, helpful and kind. Breakfast was delicious. The room was clean.
