HW stated transfers at port 24 hrs even though I e-mailed them to confirm they didn't reply. Got a taxi. On arrival only a note stating to go to next hotel, room had uncomfortable twin beds. Breakfast at blue sky was VERY basic, basically bread and jam, and meat and cheese if you got their early enough. It was to go til 10 but all was cleared away by 9:50, including coffee. Booked a tour on ship and were not informed of hike to volcano & shoes needed. Transfer to port 45 min late stressful

The place overall was fine. Our bathroom door didn't close properly because of water damage and the ladies on reception weren't the most helpful but I guess you get what you pay for. The pool was lovely and very close to town.
Was seriously let down by Blue Sky Villa, in all aspects. Our stay wasn't too bad, but we could see how others we being taking for a ride by the staff.
Awesome and surprising stay! Were picked up at the port and dropped at a hotel called Blue Suites (it seems they own a number of hotels and we had been upgraded without being informed). We were checked in and shown to a huge room with the pool practically by the doorstep. Free breakfast was plentiful and staff very helpful with booking tours and letting you know how to get around... Wish we could have stayed longer!
MY STAY IN THE BLUE SKY VILLA WAS AWFUL.. FIRST OF ALL WE ARRIVED AT THE AIRPORT AND THE TRANSFER WAS NOT THERE, WE HAD TO WAIT FOR ONE HOUR TO GET THERE. THEN WE ARRIVED AT THE HOTEL AND THEY SAID THAT THEY DIDNT HAVE A ROOM, SEND US TO ANOTHER HOTEL AND IN THE NEXT DAY TO ANOTHER ONE WITHOUT WIFI, WORST LOCATION EVER AND A BAD ROOM, WITH NO AIR CONDITION, BECAUSE IT WAS BROKEN. AND THE WORSE PART IS WE PAID MORE AND THEY DIDN'T WANT TO RETURN THE MONEY. BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD
We actually stayed next door at owners mother's hotel because she was over booked. Her mother a bit of a pill but owner of blue sky very nice, helpful, and in control. Lots of rowdy Aussies partying but relatively quiet. Private room with own patio. Great location of 5 to 10 minute walk to the beautiful Fira sunset and shopping.
They overbooked at Blue Sky Villa and sent us up the road to their 'other hotel' which was disappointing as we had chosen Blue Sky because it had a pool. Staff were friendly but mostly absent and weren't too bothered about giving us any information regarding the local area. A disappointing stay after we'd had so many positive experiences in Greece but a good location and value for money.
