Fanari Villas Santorini

As the song from an old Hollywood musical says, the best things in life are free. And so, there is no price you need to pay from the sunset views from Fanari Villas. You can chose to see it from your private balcony, or from the open air restaurant with a limited but enchanting menu, and some very nice local wines, including a Santo sparkling that very much complements everything around you. Now, you still need to pay for your trip there, and for the room. Make sure you have kids included in the reservation. We made the reservation though Expedia and ended up having to pay a hefty daily extra for our 9 year old. The best part of the room is the balcony and jacuzzi. Inside, it could be bigger and more smartly furnished. However, I saw some pictures of better looking rooms from other travellers. All in all, the front desk team and everyone in the hotel make every effort to make your stay amazing. The breakfast with the caldera view is not bat either... and the view, again, comes included in the room price. If Santorini is in your plans, I would definitely recommend Fanari Villas.

Beautiful rooms, great restaurant, awesome sunset views, and impeccable service describe this gem of a hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed this romantic little spot during our time in Oia. The staff bent over backwards to accommodate us and make sure that our stay was as best as possible. The only issues that we had were with the noise from outside the room and minor maintenance problems. However, we definitely recommend this place, especially for couples.

We were staying in Oia, Santorini at another location and booked at the restaurant at this Hotel to celebrate a birthday. The dinner was delicious, service excellent and the views were just stunning, including one of the best seats anywhere in Santorini to watch the sunset. If you dine here, you will not be disappointed. Maja, the Front of House lady, could not do enough to make sure the night was enjoyable and memorable. Staff were excellent, but it think I already said that. Book here just to watch the is well worth it. Highly recommend.

Going back to Fanari Villas is like going home but a little more luxurious! We got married there a year ago and so this May was our second time back and I cried when we left. Fanari Villas staff are family and they will never know how special they make my husband feel every time we are there. The hotel is the most beautiful hotel we have ever stayed in! (We have been to many different places in the world) This time we stayed in the honeymoon suite (room#1) & I am still dreaming of the private cave like jacuzzi inside the suite and beautiful balcony view and of course the suite among the other suites we stayed in and my family stayed in last year were all absolutely gorgeous! The buffet breakfast is yummy and the restaurant view is worth a reservation for the sunset! I hope one day soon we will be back.

Perfect honeymoon suite with private hot tub and balcony. Extraordinary view. Privacy over looking the Aegean Sea. White washed cave architecture and room. Upon arrival we were met with a bottle of wine and fruit.

We went in early May (shoulder season) so It felt like we had the place almost all to our selves. This hotel goes above and beyond to provide it's guests with a superb experience. It's attention to details like providing a delicious bottle of wine and fruit, and complimentary drinking water. I have visited Santorini in the past and have stayed at other nice hotels like Oia Mare Villas which is also nice but this for sure takes the crown. It's the attention to details that make this place great. For example the hotel uses the most amazing bath products I have ever tried (Apivita). I will order some Apivita products online when I get home. The staff is super friendly, especially the gentleman that works reception. He was so upbeat and enthusiastic to provide us great service. The breakfast is good. The only minor complaint is that the pool was a bit to cold to use in may, but that is the case in most hotels in Santorini (pools are not heated).

This is a beautiful little gem at the end of Oia village, an ideal location to see the sunset. As soon as we arrived, we were warmly welcomed by Nickolas who was very helpful and kindly showed us where to go and see before check-in. At check-in, Mia showed us around at our villa, which was amazing. We stayed at the most basic, standard villa - junior suite - but it was still amazingly spacious and had everything that it needed to have. We had two balconies, which had great sea and sunset view all the time; a very comfortable daybed in the lounge area; a jacuzzi pool in the bedroom; nice, cave-style, tucked in bed as well as cave-style bathroom. Loved antique, greek style furniture in the room. Room & amenities: Bed, daybed and sofa bed in the bedroom were all very comfortable. It could be slightly chilly at night, we only remembered that Mia told us that there was an extra blanket in the wardrobe in the last day inconveniently(!). Do use the blanket in the wardrobe if it gets cold at night. Bathroom amenities are from Apivita, paraben free, silicon free and natural product. We were given a bottle of Santorini red wine, which was very nice. Wifi is free and strong signal everywhere in the villa. Location: perfect location to browse Oia village but moreover amazing spot to see the sunset. You don't really need to go out to appreciate the sunset. Anywhere in your balcony, you can see beautiful sunset every night. Service: I am giving five star to this hotel because of the excellent service. Hotel was of course nice and we were happy with the amenities but these could be found in other four star hotels easily. But the service, warm welcome and happy smile that was given by the staff were exquisite and top class. Everyone was trying to be helpful all the time to make your stay at Fanari wonderful. Breakfast: I have to say that I am slightly disappointed with the breakfast though. It could be with more kinds of food, including the fruits and salads. Orange juice was a bit plain (compared to the other real juices that we had in other hotels). Restaurants: Fanari have a good restaurant that has a breathtaking view and nice food. Go for the spicy seafood linguini, two thumbs up! We also tried Candouni and Karma restaurant that were recommended by the hotel staff which were equally wonderful. Trust the staff's recommendations! All in all, I highly recommend this hotel to everyone who comes to Oia. We had a great three nights and we will definitely come back to stay here. A little tip: we stayed at villa 8, which was quite private and nice. I felt some villas near the swimming pool was slightly less private. Go for the highly-located villa.

The views of our Junior Suite room were glorious. The sunsets' beauty is not an exaggeration - glorious! Mia and Nickolas could not have been more helpful with questions, directions, assistance with luggage - top notch 5 star customer service. Wifi was excellent, room was comfortable and clean and beautiful, breakfast was delicious with incredible views. The location perfect for charming strolls through the village. We were there at Easter time and even got to ring the bell! Thanks Mia! We loved our stay and it beat our expectations!

We came in a group to enjoy an early dinner also to enjoy the sunset in Oia. The food was wonderful, the plating as well as the taste was excellent. We had Tomato Soup, Grilled Shrimp appetizer, Salad, Pasta with Salmon & Grilled Lobster. For dessert we had Tiramisu. Loving every dish.

This hotel was amazing. It is definitely expensive, but so worth it. 1. the views are unbeatable. Every room has an ideal sunset view. You will not have to flock to the area, like many others (you will see them trying to find the best spot for sunset, but you will already be on your balcony enjoying it). 2. the service is great. The front desk guy arranged everything for us. I recommend renting an ATV for the stay - we found it so helpful (and fun!) 3. my husband got a massage down by the pool and said it was excellent. 4. if you can, splurge on a room with a plunge pool/hot tub. It's so fun to relax in your private pool with wine while watching the sunset! 5. free breakfast everyday, lots of options. We talk about this hotel all the time and we'll definitely be back if we are in Santorini again. Best hotel we've ever stayed in!
