Alexander Villas - A great week in SantoriniPosted Sep 8, 2013
Pros: (see above)
Cons: I can't really think of anything...
Location: A visit to Oia, Fira for shopping and a trip to the volcano, a trip to the wine museum and the donkey brewery that's in walking distance was fun.
Our "villa"/room faced the caldera. The view is absolutely stunning. We arrived at night and I was speechless when I saw it in daylight. The staff are the most attentive, friendly and helpful (without being in "your face"). Our room was next to a relatively busy footpath which meant that occasionally, some less considerate tourists would be a little noisy (which didn't bother me but may be relevant to some - particularly in high season). The room is equipped with a fridge, small aircon, TV and WiFi. The bedroom is elevated (above the bathroom) which means it can be quite warm and the aircon may struggle a little to keep it cool. But I happily sacrificed a little bit of sleep for probably my best ever holiday. The breakfast was lovely (greek yoghurt, fresh fruit, buns, jams, cake, coffee/tea), the pool was great, the location of the village is nice too with plenty of good restaurants to choose from (avoid Estia though!). Fira is in walking distance (~20 minutes). Overall I loved it and highly recommend it to couples.

Simply amazing !Posted Jun 22, 2013
Pros: The stunning views and the location
Cons: Coffee/tea served in the breakfast are not hot enough, hot water supply in the shower not so constant, but they don't bother me much !
Location: Peaceful neighborhood suitable for relaxing. Good assess to nearby restaurants,convenient stores,car rental agencies and parking. 15mins walk to Thira
Just came back from Santorini last week. It has been a smart choice to stay at Imerovigli, and indeed a lucky one to have got the last minute deal from Alexander Villas. Despite worrying about some bad reviews of the hotel, I'm glad that I've given it a try. Our stay eventually turned out to be the most pleasant one among all our trips in Europe. I've noted that some people have complained about the difficulty in finding the reception of Alexander Villas. Well my advise is, ask the hotel for a pick up service as I did. For 10 Euros you really save all the hassles, plus they help carrying your luggages ! Upon arriving, the manager carried our luggages and escorted us to our room. We were allocated a room with an infinity pool right in front, just like a private pool to us! Also we were given a bottle of complimentary champagne. We love our room so much that we rather spent most of our afternoons by the pool, overlooking the jaw-dropped stunning views of the volcano and cliffs. If it wasn't so cold at night, we would have spent our time chilling at the patio every night. Seriously we'll never get bored of the views, they're simply amazing! The hotel staffs are friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel is good, with convenient stores, restaurants and car rental companies just nearby, and it's only 15minutes walk to Thira. Despite some tiny flaws, overall we enjoyed our stay. It is indeed a memorable trip and we wished we have stayed longer !

A wonderful expereincePosted Dec 11, 2012
Pros: The pool which was 1m from our villa.
Location: The location was great, it was out of the hussle bussle of the main town (Thira) and only a 20 minute walk or a short bus or taxi ride.
The Alexander Villas was wonderful. We had the best week staying there. It is attached to the Kallisto Hotel so be careful when booking that you actually get what you want because when speaking to some of the other guests some people were disappointed (because they had booked to stay at the Kallisto and ended up at Alexander Villas). We on the other hand were thrilled and will definitely stay again when we return to Santorini. It is about a 20 minute walk from Thira and there is a bus stop easily accessible from the hotel. The view is the best thing about it, it was absolutely amazing. We had breakfast delivered to our room every morning which was lovely. The hotel staff were very helpful and attended to our many requests. It was just so relaxing. The actual rooms are not perfect but the view and outside area/pool area definitely makes up for it and we spent most of our time outside anyway.

Lots wrongPosted Jun 12, 2011 on Hotels.com
The pool isn't the one pictured in the photos. Very noisy when windy. Service was just OK, they didn't go above and beyond, but were decent. Internet wasn't working when we went there, but they were fixing it...it worked last day

Amazing time in SantoriniPosted Jun 20, 2010
The Alexander Villas were AMAZING, The view we had was just incredible, we were at the top of a cliff that overlooked the harbour and the other cliffs, We had a small private pool only 2m from our room, which lit up and night and was just amazing. Room was very clean and spacious, with 2 double beds on separate levels. Breakfast was brought to you room, which was nice Only Trouble was that the shower did not have a curtain, and we couldnt get breakfast before 8am, but that did not bother me at all. I would recommend this hotel/room to EVERYONE
