Alexander Villas3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The hotel was perfect. The rooms were luxurious, with a great decoration and very clean. The view from the room to caldera was amazing. The hotels' staff was very polite and friendly and always willing to help us. Breakfast was served in the room. Imerovigli is a perfect location and definitely we made the best choice to stay there.
I booked with precaution as I saw some as reviews.but as it seems it a probably from competition as none of them are true.the hotel is an oasis of luxury among tourist traps.exceptional rooms tremendous view and 5 star staff.i enjoyed it to the point I wish I could stay more but it was unavailable.definitely going again as it was marvelous
DO NOT BOOK HERE!!! THIS PLACE IS A SCAM.. we booked here back in April 2016 and the staff of the hotel said they didn't have our booking but would look into it, hours later they said everything was fine and we were shown our room, however the next day they said they still hadn't confirmed our booking and we were to pay a full nights stay for there most luxurious suite. This ended badly as my husband ended up at the police station with one of the members of the staff of the hotel to sort out the price for the one nights stay. we ended up paying what they falsely advertised which is what we paid originally and not the extra they wanted us to pay. we then booked with a different hotel on the island. whilst we were here this situation happened to two other guests as well. Overall the hotel and the company otel.com are working together as SCAMS.. we asked for a full refund from otel.com for the nights stay at this hotel and we are still waiting on our partial refund. I suspect otel.com have given it to the hotel for the outstanding amount they wanted us to pay. PLEASE DO NOT BOOK HERE!! This would have to have been the most horrible hotel experience I have ever had!!!!
I booked the hotel through a travel agency months in advance. When we arrived at the hotel (with all the vouchers and confirmations proving it) they said that they didn't have any reservation under our name. They made a call to another hotel (talking obviously in Greek) and then they said that there was a mistaken by the travel agency and that our reservation was for "Thermes Saint Alexander Villas" in Mesaria (in the middle of nowhere) and they just checked with this hotel because is a common error. Obviously the reservation was correct (we have all the papers proving it and also the assurance company of the travel agency is recognizing it after our complaining) and they tried to fool us because they overbooked the hotel (probably they sold to us the room at a lower price in advance and then, when they received new requests, they re-sold it at a higher price without giving notice of the cancellation, imho). For a hotel, categorised as 4*, is a shame practice what they did: ovebooking and then try to fool the customers and doing this because they are in Imerovigli in Santorini, where tourist go just because is Santorini. Last but not least, when I asked them for a transfer to reach another hotel, they at the beginning offered me a price; then when I asked for a receive so I can comply and ask for a refund, then they change the price adding the VAT and the guy took 10' (ten minutes!) to find the receive block and fill it... Really, really disappointing experience.
Being a group of friends, we had a simply amazing time here. The room was as spacious as we wanted it plus it was refreshingly cool as it appears cave like, as if built into the rock! The villas are minimal in design, keeping the Santorinian tradition alive, and that it all you need as really, as the magic happens outside. Breath-taking views from our terrace we couldn’t get enough of and nothing beats their view and breakfast combination. Free wifi with good signal is an extra plus, as we couldn’t resist sharing our photos online.
Nice location about 5 min away by car or 20 min walking away from the busy centre of Santorini. Minimalistic in style, the interiors are all in the famous white and blue colours of the Cyclades, with a simple style with touches of elegance here and there. Inside you instantly relax, and outside you are instantly in awe of the natural beauty. Breakfast is a top experience served to your villa and we found out it was different for nearly every day we stayed there. In short, simple interiors, incredible exteriors and its location is a perfect as you can enjoy the walk towards the centre and back.
If you haven’t checked the Imerovigli area, you should when you next visit Santorini island as it offers beautiful panoramic views of both the famous Caldera and the black volcano. Driving into the centre of town is a very short journey, like 6 minutes maybe, and from there you can reach the beaches easily. The views from our balcony were truly excellent of course, but we also enjoyed the service of the staff and the wonderful breakfast choices.
Within a short distance you are in the centre of Fira for dinner or drinks before walking back. For the ladies I would suggest flat shoes for sure and this way you get to see the caldera from so many points of view. The room had a lovely bedroom loft space which we loved and it made the area appear even bigger, so it’s a nice plus. Free wifi and free ensuite breakfast are also bonuses when staying here.
Located in a great spot, the Alexander Villas that we stayed in for a long weekend were a good choice for staying outside the centre. The views are simply magical and in combination with a delicious breakfast, in the typical Cycladic architecture, it offers a truly genuine experience. Minimal rooms and spectacular views of the volcano and the caldera, book the Suite with a private jacuzzi so that you can enjoy privacy to the max.
Alexander Villas is tucked away in the area of Imerovigli, and it is very much like a retreat with almost cave like rooms that will make you feel like you are the only people in the world. The staff were very helpful to explain any questions we had and it was great to know that they served us a really nice breakfast to our suite that was a nice mix between healthy and delicious treats.
