Rated 5 out of 5 by CardinalsNation Great property, lots of character
My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon last Fall and found the resort to exceed our expectations. The property is very unique, being situated in a former winery and having more of a village style than a traditional hotel. The staff were welcoming and the town as a whole was a great experience, avoid the tourist centers and stay here. We also visited a winery nearby and had a great wine tasting, rented 4 wheelers (which I would highly recommend) and were in a good location for exploring the part of the island that is not focused as much on tourism but rather industry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gasjr All that you could ask for
First the staff-knowledgable, friendly, can't do enough for you.
The Facility - if you want to relax in luxury come here
Service - it is personal and expert. The van service could add one more trip to Fira, butin allis great.
Food - B'fast is great. For dinner go to one of the 6 in the town where the resort is located ...better food for 1/3rd the cost

Rated 5 out of 5 by SteveK Honeymoon at Vedema
I was looking through our Honeymoon Pictures today as in two weeks it will have been a year since our Visit to Vedema. I was reminded of the amazing stay we had at the resort. the friendliness of the staff and the comfort and amenities we received during our visit. The location on the island is great. It was an amazing time at an amazing place. I strongly recommend the Vedema Resort if you are visiting Santorini.

Really nice hotel. The beach the hotel has a reserved space for is really rocky and not so nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by hartdoc Staff of hotel need to be trained better
I spent 2 nights at this resort with my wife and we went for pure rest and relaxation. When we were taken to our room we saw a clean, luxurious room which was inviting. The bellman showed us the outside sitting area and there was a cat under the lounge chair. Since I am allergic to cats and my wife was fearful of cats they attempted to chase the cat away only to see it return. The management changed our room. We sat by both the pool and the Jacuzzi. They were very peaceful. So peaceful that not once did we see pool staff. No one offered to set up our chairs or provide us with towels. There were no waitresses around the pool offering drinks. No one cleared any of the garbage that was by the Jacuzzi pool the whole day.
We asked the front desk to arrange for a taxi in the early evening to go into town but they discouraged us from going into town by taxi at this time because they said that it would be very difficult to get a taxi at that time. We took the only shuttle into town at 5:15PM. The following night I saw people getting into a taxi at the same time I was going to go. I was disappointed in the service of the front desk. I also feel that there should be more shuttles into town. I must say that I was very happy to be picked up by the shuttle service from the port. Aside from these mishaps, the food in the hotel is delicious and fresh. We did relax and enjoy the boutique experience we had in this hotel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DON43 A disappointing experience
First impressions stay with you and the first impressions were not good. We were picked-up at the airport as promised but we had to wait about two hours before being given access to our room. In this two hours we were given a tour of the facility. Its location was not what we expected. We were nowhere near the ocean and it was impossible to see water from any location. Our original room allocated was a suite at the same level that we had booked. We were told that no upgrade was available. The disappointment on getting in to the room was great. The suite was tired looking, poorly outfitted and finished. There was rust in the fridge, mould in the caulking and the overall impression was a cheap summer cottage. There was an old hot-tub which took up most of the balcony. This balcony was the only place that had a limited water view. I told the hotel that the only thing "Luxury" in this Luxury Collection property was the price. Later that first day I was able to talk to the owner/general manager and he arranged for a change of suites on the second (of six) nights. This was much better, had a water view and its own pool. Breakfast most mornings was problematic because of smokers who sat for one or two hours. We asked to be sat away from smokers but this was impossible to control, even when we had a "reserved" table. The wait staff did not appear well trained and it was often impossible to get hot coffee and refills or a large glass of water. On a number of mornings, the tablecloth was soiled. Must nights we ate in the village but one night in the signature restaurant, Vinsanto. Service was good but the meals were overpriced. There were problems with getting complementary water (essential since the tap water was not potable) and facecloths in room. As our stay progressed, we got to better appreciate the resort but we were left with the overall feeling of having paid far too much for the quality of facilities and service that we received
