A five star view with three star service average 4 starr

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 16 Sept 2008
The Lilium has the best few on the island as it is located centrally on the Caldera and the sunset is unbelievable. The staff is not real professional at the front desk and when you get to the lobby it is very small and it feels like a motel six when you enter, however, the swimming pool area and bar area and bartender are great! Beautiful beautiful sunset! This pool area is a 5 star! Our accommodations our first night were two twin beds stuck together and wreaked of smoke and we could not stay in the room. They gave us the suite that night and we had to move the next day to a room with a queen bed, which was so much better. Rememberer the rooms are minimalist so don't expect too much from the room, what you get here is the view. They did not answer any emails prior to our arrival regarding transportation to & from the port, however, they were there to great us but I had to call them to find out where to meet our driver. Transportation cost 12 euros each way to port or airport. Lots of steps to get down to the rooms which is part of the uniqueness of Santorini itself. This hotel is centrally located about 2 miles from Fira and quite a walk at night 5 euros by Taxi. Highly recommend renting a car on this island due to the long narrow island and getting to OIA is a must! All the picture postcards of Greece must have been taken in OIA. Also Blue Lagoon sunset sail - the best and great food!! Highly recommend! Stay away from Selenes (highly rated, expensive and poor quality of food but go next door to the 1518 restaurant - expensive but worth it!

Caldera's Lilium Villa is awesome. As other reviewers have mentioned, the view is incredible. All of the villas are set within the cliffside -- the rooms are cool without even needing to be air conditioned (though they do have AC units), which is such an amazing feeling after spending all day in the summer heat. They rooms are sparse and beautiful with white and blue decor; the beds are comfortable; and they give you a free bottle of wine! Each villa also have a balcony and since each villa faces the amazing caldera view, every single room has an amazing view. I cannot explain how amazing it is to be swimming in their beautiful pool, relaxing on the awesome pool side chaise lounges, and looking out over the beauty that is the Santorini caldera. You feel like you are at the edge of the world. The staff is very friendly and eager to guide you around the island and the location is good -- close enough to Fira to walk to but outside of it enough to not feel hectic at all. This hotel is very very highly recommended -- I hope that life brings me here again!!

We spent a week at the Caldera Lilium Villas in June 08. Great location on the Caldera rim, classic views of the sunset over the caldera. We had a nice room with a small private balcony on the third floor overlooking the pool. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful, the Barman / Dinner restaurant waiter was also very friendly, super efficient and helped us make the most of our time on Santorini with some good tips on where to go and what to see. The hotel is a 20 min walk from Fira on a busy road, but they do provide a free shuttle bus into Fira and back 3-4 times a day which is a great service. The only moan we had was the breakfast service was a bit slow and the buffet wasn't up to scratch for this price hotel.

We stayed here with gate1travel which was overall an excellent tripl package including Mykonos, Athens and Istanbul for our honeymoon. The rooms were very nice and the view unbelievable. We overlooked a pool (too cold to use in early April), the volcano and hot springs. The hotel provided a bottle of wine and the room had a fridge, oven and kitchenette. The shower was below average as the spout was handheld and there was no hook to have it actually rain down on you. The breakfast was decent. The view from the restaurant was wonderful and dinner was great. Staff was first class. Internet use was reasonable at $3 for 15 minutes. Within walking distance to a grocery store with very cheap wine and close to the winery. Too far from Fira, but they offer a shuttle to drop you off and pick up several times a day. The car rental service they recommend was excellent as well. Overall, a wonderful experience for our honeymoon.

Stayed here for our Honeymoon in July. This place has the most perfect views and the evening sunset in beautiful. The apartments are very clean and well kept - certainly a little more luxurious than most greek apartments. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good. We never ate at the restaurant because the prices were a little more expensive than in Fira. We did try the mexican up the road but it really wasnt worth it for the price.
We asked the hotel to ring for us a taxi each evening to get to fira and if the minibus was available- it usually was - you could travel in this for a few euros. Fira is a beautiful place - we never ate at any restaurants on the cliff because they were very overpriced - and there was never anything to see bacause it was always dark at the time we ate. We found some very good resaurants down the backstreets in fira. We used the bus on two occasions and found them cheap and easy to use. Once to visit Oia - which is well worth a visit , although go late afternoon when its nice and quiet and another afternoon we got the bus to one of the black sand beaches on the other other side of the island. We also went on one of the boat trips to the volcano and hot springs - which are good value.
Overall it was a fantastic holidays and the perfect place for a honeymoon.

This is a great hotel with lovely, helpful people. Good pool, nice food and tasteful rooms.

They helped us have a great time in Santorini.

PS: Do not, whatever you do, eat at Katrin Gallery in Fira. It's an overpriced disgrace.
