Really enjoyed our stay here. We stayed in the sunset view room with a nice balcony, and the view was better than it is in Oia, where rooms either have a caldera view or a sunset view but not both. The breakfast here was nice and the staff very helpful and welcoming.

The customer service from the staff was amazing and we didn't experience such amazing service the rest of our Europe trip! We arranged airport transfers both two and from the hotel. Which was very convenient. You can arrange it online before you...

My wife and I stayed at Villa Ilias for 4 nights in September and thoroughly enjoyed out trip. The service and breakfast were great, and the staff was very helpful in setting up activities, restaurant reservations, and transportation. We has a private balcony with a caldera-facing view, which I recommend. The room itself was small, but sufficient, as we only...

The People can make or break your vacation - George and Mary made this a most enjoyable experience! The hotel is perfectly located - just outside of the city central but close enough to enjoy a casual walk along the rim into town. Great pool setting, wonderful breakfast and evening wine events. They arrange airport or ferry transfers, will arrange...

The Villa Ilias hotel team were all very friendly. They provided great information about daily activities and sights around the island. The hotel was within easy walking distance to Fira. We would definitely stay there again. Thanks George!

We stayed in Villa Ilias for only three days, but we have never felt so comfortable and welcome in any hotel. Apart from the perfect location, I also fell in love with the view from the hotel room and from the pool. Every morning we had amazing breakfast buffet in their little indoor patio and every morning there was a...
