A truly outstanding hotel and staff
Posted May 31, 2015 on Hotels
This is a first review for a hotel, but I am compelled to write one because this was an extraordinary experience! From the first email contact with Kima Villas, Tasos was very helpful with my inquiries regarding the property, activities on Santorini, and other information, like the ferry schedules to other islands. He arranged our transport from the airport to assure that we would make it time for the famous Santorini sunset, and it went very smoothly. Aris was there with a huge smile to meet our taxi to help us with our luggage down the steps to the hotel, which was very much appreciated. Yes, there are a lot of steps involved with getting down the caldera, but it is so worth it. The location of the hotel removes you from the traffic of the other visitors, yet is right there in the middle of Oia's action. Back to Tasos, who is easily the most personable hotel manager we've ever met! He was genuinely interested in making our visit enjoyable, and had lots of activities to recommend (we took the day-long tour that included the Akrotiri excavation site, which is a must-do), as well as restaurant recommendations, too. We stayed in the Junior Suite, which was just renovated this past winter, and it was a gorgeous room with our very own jacuzzi on the balcony! The breakfasts were also very good, served on our balcony overlooking the caldera and water. It was just heavenly. Thank you, Tasos and crew! You made our stay outstanding!!!
