About Monolithos Hotel

Set in a peaceful and quite area, but still only 40 yards from the beach, Monolihos Hotel offers basic accommodation to guests looking for a no-frills Greek beach holiday.

Despite being more than 100 miles from Sparta, the rooms are fairly basic and spartan. But they are comfortable enough, and feature en-suite bathroom, minibar, TV and private balcony with view.

The central feature at Monolithos Hotel is undoubtedly its pool terrace. It has a view of the Aegean, and also the usual sun loungers dotted around. There is on-site parking available for guests. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout.

A basic buffet breakfast is available every morning, and drinks and snacks from the bar during the rest of the day.

The main attraction has to be the beach, only a couple of minutes walk from Monolithos Hotel. The clifftop views, for which Santorini is so famous, are on the opposite side of the island, about four miles away.

Positive Reviews

Fairly close to the beach

While the hotel isn't right on the beach, it is a pretty short walk away. Most guests seemed not to mind the walk, and never felt that they were on some sot of journey every time they wanted to head to the beach.

Nice swimming pool terrace

While it is certainly nothing fancy, guests certainly appreciated having the pool and terrace available. They described it as a great place to chill out during the day, and the pool itself ideal for a late afternoon dip to cool down after a long day.

Good budget option

A couple of guests conceded that the hotel had minimal facilities, but claimed that the resulting lower room rates were a boon to people who simply wanted a decent place  to stay on a very expensive island.

Negative Reviews

Numerous noise issues

Unfortunately, it seems Monolithos has numerous noise problems, Firstly, since it is so close to the airport guests say there is a decent amount of jet noise from planes taking off and landing. Secondly, the walls were said to have poor soundproofing, and guests could hear the sound from adjacent rooms quite distinctly.

A bit remote

A couple of guests mentioned that they really needed a car to make the most of their time. While there was a beach nearby, the town of Monolithos was small and didn't really have the amenities or attractions they were looking for.

Spotty Wi-Fi

Most guests were not much impressed with the Wi-Fi system. For a start, they claimed that the signal didn't reach all rooms as advertised, so it was a bit of the luck of the draw whether their particular room could pick it up. Secondly, it was described as rather slow.
