Just departing the island after 4 wonderful days. Stayed at Ambelia just outside Oia. Rooms very cosy but hosts hospitality was what set the place apart from other holiday venues. Warm, genuine and very personal throughout. This will be our takeaway memory from the holiday. Thankyou.

Our traditional villa here was amazing, newly renovated for the peak season. Fully air conditioned although you won't need it as it's so cool inside regardless of external temperatures. We had a few lights internally and externally that didn't work but nothing to detract from the sea views and spacious accommodation. Breakfast was decent too! Sami the manager was brilliant,...

Really nice little spot. A good ten minute walk from the main town but well worth the savings because you stay in a cave house, have a pool for the hot hot afternoons, and a wonderful breakfast and staff. We stayed for three nights and had the hotel arrange for shuttles to and from the port. Even when we missed...

The villas don't have easy access neither indications on how to get there. Our room (one bedroom sea view) smelled of dump and in fact we had to leave the dehumidifier on throughout the night, which was quite noisy. Absolutely not recommended if you have mobility problems. The place is tranquil, about 25 mins walking to Oia. It is all...

This is a beautiful, comfortable, and clean hotel in a great location! Breakfast is very good and served near the pool with an ocean view. However, it is very hard to find and requires quite a bit of walking and staircases to reach it. Try to arrive with daylight and pack light :)

Place is nice but not very easy...it's 10-15 minutes far from oia and there are a lot of stairs to do. If you don't have good legs maybe this is not the right place but, in santorini the most part of the hotel are innthe same situation, We' ve been only 2 days but we stayed fine. They are very...

Popped here for a couple of extra days in Santorini after leaving Dana villas. Wanted a traditional village no frills and out of the way without being to far of beaten track. If you want this then I can recommend Ambelia. First impressions was not overwhelming, but settle in and the quite tones of nothing hits you fast. In fact...
