Wonderful staff, idyllic location, unique rooms, incredible view, beautiful pool, delicious breakfast, stunning sunsets, even the toiletries are to die for!

Staying at The Vasilicos is like staying with family. It is worth every penny/cent. I'm not sure I've ever been so glowing of anywhere I've stayed ever before!

Perfect.

We had 5 fantastic nights at the Vasilicos.

It is difficult to know where to start to be honest. First and foremost, the rooms and the views are simply majestic - everything you dream of when you visit Santorini. Then add in the incredibly attentive yet non-intrusive, caring staff, as well as equisite homely food. You really can't go wrong!

One of the best things (alongside a long list of others)  is the privacy. A lot of places in Santorini get looked over on the main walkways and you might find yourself sunbathing or swimming in your infinity pool whilst a large group of tourists with cameras look over you.....Not at the Vasilicos.
You're situated at the top of the hill, in walking distance to Fira. There is a large heated pool with amazing Caldera views, which never seems to get busy. Most of the time it felt like a private pool, which we very much enjoyed!

Daphne has clearly instilled first class attention to detail when it comes to the design of each room and the whole experience. We had the pleasure of sharing a drink together one evening after a chilly walk home. It was great to hear her stories and how she has added her personal touches to The Vasilicos - it really shines through. Good luck with the Ark!

The little things make a massive difference. The amazing candles that are lit in your room before you get home in the evening, blankets for when it's cold at night, all natural beauty products in the bathroom and your own tablet with all the information you would ever need for your stay. Despite this, friendly members of staff checked in at various points of the day to ensure that we had everything we needed. Fiorela at the front desk, really is an assett to The Vasilicos. She is incredibly helpful, kind and no ask is too much for her. At the start of the holiday I wasn't feeling too well with a cough and she would regularly check in and even gave me extra vitamin c, which worked a treat!

Last but not least - we have to comment on the food! Every morning you are served a festival of breakfast foods on your own balcony using the finest crockery. I am allergic to gluten and this was carefully catered for without any hassle.

We were lucky enough to have our own private dinner on the balcony overlooking the sunset with a special menu one evening. The chefs talked the menu through with us to make sure it was to our taste and I have to say it was sublime. The monkfish and octopus were first class. Yannis (the head chef) came to greet us after dinner and it was a real joy to meet him and hear about his passion for food.

Overall, we couldn't recommend The Vasilicos enough. If you want the experience you've been after when you've googled "the perfect Santorini experience".....Go here.

We will miss the awe inspiring sunsets and delightful caldera views. We would love to return ....and bring family members with us  (
budget permitting!). Thank you for a perfect end to our holiday exploring  the Greek islands!

Dear Mike and Sophia, thank you for this review, and for noticing the details - they so often get ignored by the impressiveness of the bigger picture! I thoroughly enjoyed our drink, and hope you will return sooner, rather than later! Warm wishes, Daphne

Wow - spent several nights at The Vasilicos late September/ early October. Blown away by the whole experience - the hotel staff, the grounds, the food, the location. This is a hidden gem and I'm reluctant to even write this review because I want to be able to stay here again in the future. At the moment we arrived, we were greeted by the hotel staff at the drop-off. We were given drinks and sat down and had a very pleasant conversation - just like we were family visitors. For our entire stay, the staff were as friendly and helpful as possible - everyone. The staff treated us like we were members of their own family. The grounds were immaculately clean and the presentation was like a commercial out of Better Home and Garden magazine. Morning breakfast was spectacular. We ordered dinner one night and sitting under the stars in front of our room couldn't be more romantic. The property is located withing walking distance of other wonderful restaurants, shopping and local sites.

Funny story - every morning I woke up and took a picture of the view out from our room - view is so spectacular, I was just overwhelmed by the beauty and felt I was seeing it for the first time.

Cost was on the higher range of our budget AND SO WORTH IT! There are cheaper hotels (be careful) and some of the more expensive hotels that we visited didn't seem to have the same personal touch as this property.

Ignore the one bad post for this property - I am as picky as they come and this property exceeded all of my expectations - this has never happened for me.

Room Tip: All rooms are great.

Dear The_Fedman, thank you so much for your warm words, and for your discrete and delicate support. What you say about the photos is so true...I particularly remember having film developed (in the old days hehe) and having the same view come out over and over and over again! All these years later, I find the view as captivating as ever, and love how every sunset is different. Thank you for understanding what The Vasilicos is all about, and for taking the time to share. Warmest wishes, Daphne

We spent four nights at The Vasilicos and loved every minute. The staff was so attentive, the grounds beautiful, the room perfect, breakfasts lovely and the meal we had prepared for us was delectable. All in all a lovely experience from the moment we checked in until the sad moment we had to leave.

Room Tip: We loved the layout of our room (Daphne's).

There's a reason that, as of writing this review, out of 179 reviews, 153 are excellent... We stayed only one night in this beautiful place and (I know it sounds silly) but our lives are forever changed. Every future vacation we will ever take will forever be compared to the wonderful Vasilicos. From the warm, incredibly friendly + welcoming staff, to the unbelievable sunset views, to the plush accommodations, staying at the Vasilicos is the only way to experience Santorini.
TIPS:
- Let Chef Yannis prepare a private dinner for you while you watch the sunset from your terrace over a glass of wine. He makes the most amazing octopus!
- Be friendly to the Vasilicos kitten, Lazario (as we've fondly named him... after our bottle of rose, of course)
- If you can, stay in the Belvedere suite... You can watch nature's most incredible show before taking a dip in your private hot tub.

The only thing that keeps the sadness of no longer being there at bay is the promise I made my husband make me before we left: that he'd bring me back to the Vasilicos... and this time, for much longer than one night!

Thank you to everyone at the Vasilicos, especially Fiorella, Artemis and Yannis! We will see you next time!
