The caldera view is simply amazing ! Can’t beat waking up to a breakfast served on your balcony with the caldera as a backdrop . We went on nov 22-24 and weather was really good. A bit cold on our first day and it warmed up to like a summer day in the end . We bought souvlaki and ate at our balcony for one lunch because we enjoyed the view so much . Pavlos (hotel manager) is the best ! Made really good recommendations on places to eat and visit , got us a rental, booked our sunset cruise , etc . Took really good care of us . The only downside was the outdoor jacuzzi in our villa had to be repaired during our stay so couldn’t use it for several hours . But it only heated up to 36 degrees anyway ... it’ll be nice if it was hotter.
Can't think of enough superlatives to describe Asteras. This accommodation will not disappoint you. Beautiful views of the caldera, champaign breakfast in your own private balcony (every morning), warm jacuzzi, clean facilities and warm and friendly staff makes this an outstanding choice. Centrally located with access to shops, restaurants and transportation. Vehicle rentals available at the front office. Pavlos, Anna and Eri ensure you have wonderful stay. I recommend arranging pickup from the airport through the hotel, since the Asteras Villas could be difficult to find. Στην υγειά σας (cheers)
Stayed here as a 50th birthday treat. From the minute we arrived, we were made to feel very special. Pablos and Anna made us feel so welcome and even gave our 4 year old daughter special treats. Their help with car hire, dinner suggestions, etc was invaluable. We stayed in Luna Suite which is a deep luxurious cave room with jacuzzi on the balcony. The views were fantastic. Champagne breakfast was served each morning on the balcony. Pure luxury. Asteras Villas are right in the centre of Fira beneath the cathedral and next to a cocktail bar. Hundreds of restaurants are within easy walking distance. Even though the villas are central, it is still very peaceful. Crowds gather above the villas and in the cocktail bar to see the sunset but soon disappear when the sun goes down. You can walk for miles along the front of Fira and also visit the many boutique and gift shops. You can drive to most places on the island within 30 minutes as its only 12 miles long. We went to the beach in Perissa twice for sunny days out. The beaches were hot and almost deserted! We would not hesitate to recommend Asteras Villas. There is nothing to fault. We had a fantastic holiday!
Fantastic apartment for a couple of days stay. Be prepared for lots of stairs as all apartments in Santorini. The staff were very nice. Private sun beds and outside jacuzzi all round. Breakfast on your private terrace is awesome and don’t forget to tick for breakfast champagne.
Asteras Villas are fantastic. We stayed in the Astrophelia villa for our 30th anniversary. I can't say enough about how wonderful this location is. They tend to every need. Shout out to Anna and Pablos.... these two are absolutely wonderful, friendly and there for anything you may need. Want to stay in Santorini... this is the place to do it!!
Absolutely loved this place. The views were fantastic, the breakfasts, amazing, and the staff were so helpful! Pavlos had wonderful recommendations for places to eat and was very hospitable and made us feel right at home. Already planning our trip back!
Unfortunately my partner and I had a bad experience prior to our stay, we had booked the hotel and were contacted and offered an upgrade. The staff informed us that they had double booked our room. They wanted to put us in two separate hotels. My partner and I went back to explain that we would accept the upgrade but wanted the same hotel for the duration. The staff then explained that they had given away the upgrade to the other couple who happily accepted the hotel. This would not usually be an issue however, it was our anniversary and my partner had planned a proposal which the hotel were fully aware of. Unfortunately the proposal was postponed. My partner and I called up a number of times to try and rectify the issue and the staff were disgustingly rude explaining that its our fault we should have accepted. However, we never declined we jsut asked if they were able to accomodate 1 hotel for the duration as it was a special break. We carried on with the original booking in LaLuna suites and half expected the hotel and staff to be a disgrace but I can safely say that Anna and the male receptionist were incredible. They went above and beyond our expectations and helped us book transport, dinner, lunch, excursions. The room was Immaculate and by far the best view we had in santorini. The breakfast was amazing. The room was cleaned daily. It was quiet at night. The room was perfect temperature but had a well working aircon and heating unit. 5 stars all round but 10 stars for the staff. Thank you for making our stay so memorable.
We stayed in the Astrophelia suite in September 2017 as we were getting married in Santorini. The Room Wowza, it's amazing, it's huge as well! The entire room is just so extravagant. You get a complimentary laptop in the room, which was a nice touch, although we didn't use it. There's a Nespresso machine and your pods are refreshed everyday. There is also a docking station with a USB loaded with songs, which I thought was lovely. On arrival Pavlos opened the door and there was soft music playing and he gave us two glasses of champagne, it felt to special! The Balcony So basically, you have your inside/covered balcony where your tub is, which is again, huge! and then you have your outside balcony which has two sunbeds, umbrella and a table and chairs. This is the part of the balcony which is shared. Other guests from the hotel and staff walk on this bit of the balcony to get to their rooms and you are very close to another hotel on your right hand side, if anything we enjoyed this, we got speaking to a lovely Australian family and if people walked through the balcony (which wasn't very often) they were always so friendly. If you have been to Santorini before you will know if you want to stay in the main places, privacy is not possible, so if this is important to you, look at another island! Breakfast One of the peaks of our stay here was the champagne breakfast every morning!! On our arrival Pavlos told us there were set times you could have your breakfast and only one room can take that time, we were a little worried about this at first as most people wanted the early ones, but we didn't get out of bed earlier than 10am most days so this wasn't a problem at all. One day we did need an early breakfast so we went up early and made sure we got the spot! The breakfast is delicious and huge! Staff One of the best parts of our stay were the staff, Anna and Pavlos were so helpful and understanding as we were having our wedding that week they helped us a lot! And booked taxis for us most days which was again really helpful. Even the breakfast chap (sorry I didn't get his name) was great, one day we really 'hit the hay hard' and nearly missed breakfast so he just gave us a gentle knock to say our breakfast was outside, which was really sweet. Location Okay, you cannot get a better located hotel, impossible, it is bang in the centre of Thira, near hotel Atlantis where there is a car park so you can put any hired vehicles there. There are quite a few steps to get down to the hotel, so I would not recommend this hotel for children and the elderly. We had lots of guests staying in Santorini so this was the perfect place to be amongst everyone. And the views... they look better in person! Summary I love this hotel, it's great and I would highly recommend it!
We stayed in the Astrophelia suite and loved it! My husband complained of the steps every time (44 because he counted). I thought it was fine. Take your time. If steps are an issue book a room higher up. Our balcony was stunning with incredible sea views and the jacuzzi was the perfect touch!! Breakfast was outstanding and so was Pavlos. His recommendations were great. Hotel is pristine, location could not be better. You can walk everywhere you need to go and if you are venturing to the far corners of Santorini, the island's main bus station is a block away. We hope to return to Santorini one day and will stay at Asteras Villas with no hesitation.
This was our second time visiting Asteras Villas! We stayed in the bigger suite this time and it was perfect! The only thing I forgot was how many stairs there were to take, but that's everywhere in Santorini! Pavlo the manager was amazing from the moment we arrived, from helping getting us settled to provided suggestions for beautiful places to eat! Location is perfect, view spectacular and breakfast was amazing! Nothing to fault! Thanks again Pavlo and team for being so hospitable! Until next time - regards Mary & Tony from Australia
