Reviewed 14 December 2017

A good first impression as the Reception staff were warm ,friendly and helpful.The rooms were large and ours had a private plunge pool and great views of the sea and incoming cruise ships.The best views of the sea were from the restaurant where breakfast was served.Breakfast was not very elaborate and vegetarian choices were limited.
The hotel is located a thirty minute walk away from Fira.A free shuttle is available to and from Fira at fixed timings.At other times one can pay to get the shuttle service.
Would recommend a stay at this hotel

Room Tip: Rooms are at different levels.If you can’t climb up and down stairs ask for a higher level room

This hotel was so beautiful and fulfilled all our expectations.

The room was lovely, the breakfast was tasty, the staff were so friendly and the views were absolutely stunning!!

The hotel provided a free shuttle to town which was handy. They also do taxi runs which is added to your bill and cheaper then an actual taxi.

If we were to return to Santorini one day, I would definitely go back to the hotel.

It was a beautiful place to celebrate turning 30! Thank you

The decision to choose Lilium Villas in October was guided by the high ratings on Trip Advisor, the beautiful view in the hotel image and the hotel rate.

Our room was on a level below the pool, which gave us a stunning uninterrupted view of the Aegean Sea. The room was not large but was comfortable and we had no complaints. There were steps to negotiate to reach the room.

The hotel restaurant had an amazing view of the sea and we looked forward to our leisurely breakfasts. The choice of breakfast food was good, although not extensive. We liked the freshly squeezed orange juice. We also ate at the restaurant for dinner most evenings and thoroughly enjoyed the food and the view. The sunset from this restaurant in October must be the best on the Island. The sun dips directly into the sea without any land mass obstructing the final rays of sunshine. I doubt sunsets in Oia at this time of year are any better and we enjoyed the relative calm of this location compared to the hordes of people in Oia.

The hotel staff in the evening was excellent and very friendly, as was the reception staff upon our arrival and during our stay. There was a charge for pickup from the airport and transfer to the ferry terminal. I did notice they sometimes offer free transfers from the airport, perhaps as a promotion. I suggest you send an Email to find out.

The hotel is located some distance outside of Fira. The hotel provides periodic free shuttles to Fira and also ad-hoc shuttles for a small fee. We walked in to Fira a couple of times and this walk takes about 30 minutes. The views for much of the journey are very impressive. Cruise ships were regular visitors to the island during the week offloading their large number of passengers so Fira, and especially Oia, get quite crowded at those times.

We traveled to the ancient ruins in Akrotiri by bus and had a lunch just down the road by the water. The buses on Santorini are very nice, more like tour buses than local buses.

In summary, Santorini is an amazing location to visit and should be on everyone’s ‘must visit’ list. The Lilium Suites was a very good choice and we have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to Trip Advisor readers.

3 friends in their mid 20’s visiting from California - The hotel itself was in a great spot right on the cliff about 5 mins from Fira. The room was nice and luxurious, the grounds were picturesque, and the restaurant had fantastic views. Our favorite part though is the hotel staff, they were so helpful and friendly. They helped facilitate our wine tasting, ATV rentals, boat trip to the Caldera, free shuttle to Fira, transportation to the airport, and all of he other things we wanted to do.

Don’t stay anywhere else, this place is the best!

We spent 3 nights in the villa. We've got upgraded 2 times which was very appreciated! The room was great, we liked the simple design, elegant and tasteful. We stayed 2 nights in a room with outside hot tube on 2rd floor and 1 night with out door jacuzzi on 1st floor. We enjoyed both rooms. Breakfast was okay, poor was pretty, the ocean view was stunning. We will definitely recommend this villa and hope to come back soon.
