Very luxurious hotel. From entrance, to the guide tour of the hotel, it is all magnificent. I had a suite with balcony jacousi. Very delicious food. The staff is good but they are a bit slow, thats ok. Try vedema wine from their own wine yard.
"Great hotel, poor location."
The property is quite nice. Great staff, great rooms, nice pool. They went above and beyond trying to accommodate me before the regular check-in time. The only down side is that it's far from Oia and there's not much to do in the area. You'll need a car to explore the island anyway, so it's not a disaster. Unless you're on your honeymoon and just want to relax and enjoy - then you should really consider alternatives in Oia.
"Beautiful property, wonderful stay!"
We LOVED our stay at the Vedema. The rooms were super spacious (two floors!) and had views of the hillside and ocean. Amazing breakfast buffet overlooking the pool area with a lot of delicious Greek options. Definitely a highlight of trip everyday. We also really liked the location of this hotel because it is a bit removed which adds to the charm. Rent a car - it was super easy thanks to the helpful front desk and it made traveling around the island so much easier. We also made friends with another couple at breakfast and ended up traveling around the island with them - so much fun. We headed to Mykonos after the Vedema and we kept longing to be back in Santorini. Enjoy this gem of a hotel!
"Beautiful Property, subpar service, not ideal location"
We stayed here at the beginning of the season (May 2016). The property is very nice we got upgraded to a villa with my gold status. We had a lounge + 2 beds/2 baths - the villa was very spacious. The service was ok. We had questions as it was our first visit to Santorini and the front desk was less than helpful. We were told by the front desk we could use the pool at their sister property in Oia and when we ask how to set it up - the women treated us like we were asking for a huge favor. When we also asked for recs for watching the sunset - the rec was horrible. It was crowded and the view was not great. The location, I thought, was ok. You're not near Oia or Fire. We used the hotel shuttle for one way and a bus to go in between Fira and Oia. But the really only way to get around is by taxi which is very expensive and they're not readily available. Not sure I would stay there again.
We really enjoyed this resort, the staff were amazing, so attentive, friendly and patient. The resort is like a miniature village, with lots of little houses in the Greek style and decor and apartments. We had a wonderful house spread over 3 levels with 2 outdoor terraces, one of which was on the rooftop. Our views were over the resort and out to the beautiful sea. The breakfast buffet was delicious, with an array of Greek and international food. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant, which was excellent. We also did the wine tasting evening which was full of wonderful surprises. The restaurants outside the hotel are very good and well worth a visit. There's free transport to the beach and to Thira. They have a dedicated area on the beach with sun loungers, umbrellas and towels are provided. Its attached to a bar and restaurant. The beach is black volcanic sand so it gets very hot. The trip to Thira is about 20 minutes away, where there are a number of wonderful restaurants. We spent a day on the Carpe Diem boat trip. So much fun and excellent value for money. Our friends had one of the villas with a pool which was also beautiful.
