Wow. This place is super special if you are looking for a romantic getaway. Book room 64 if you want the pleasure of your own private pool. Lovely spacious cool room with its own living space including sink and fridge and a private balcony to watch the spectacular sunset which is what everyone seems to go to the Greek islands for. It’s unfair to judge food during a pandemic with social distancing etc but the breakfast set up is limited but it is unfair to judge anywhere these days due to the health considerations.
We loved our fresh salad by the bigger pool at lunchtime and our iced coffees mid afternoon. Staff were very friendly and attentive.
This hotel is well placed for walking to Fira, hiking to Oia, climbing Skaros rock or just sitting watching the boats go by in the impressive caldera.
If you are travelling as a family or have mobility issues I would think twice about choosing Santorini as a destination. Built into cliffs there are many many steps - not good for a buggy or if you struggle to get around.
But if you are looking for a romantic few days this is the place to come 💗
I booked this accommodation as a surprise for my wife for our 10 year wedding anniversary. We where recommended it from some friends that visited a few years before.
My first contact with the accomistion was via phone and email to book and they could not be more helpful.
On our arrival we had arranged a private transfer to collect us from the airport to the hotel. Due to the Covid we had to wear a mask in the taxi which is compulsary now in most countries
On arrival at the hotel we where taken down to reception where we where greeted by the receptionist . We have to complete a few forms and where shown to our room. I booked the Honeymoon suite which had its own little pool and sun terrace with sun loungers.
The staff during the visit where all very welcoming and helpful and helped us arrange a Quad bike hire for one day which is a great way to explore the island.
The bar man, was amazing and very helpful in making some cocktails that where not on the menu.
We had a large selection for breakfast which was always delivered to our room, however I would agree its a bit on the expensive side for the quaility of the food.
I would definitely stay here again
The hotel sent a transfer to get us at the airport and the driver was nice and use of mask was mandatory in the van and hand sanitizer was provided! Once in the hotel we were greeted by a local who did not speak much English but was nice to carry our bags until the reception and later on to our room. The receptionists were the nicest people in the hotel, they helped us with booking restaurants, renting a scooter, directions and were always super nice! The reception was protected and the staff wore a mask and visor! Very happy with that! We also got a free upgrade which made it even nicer!
The hotel itself has 2 small pools for 3 and a bigger one by the bar. The view is breathtaking and the rooms are very good! Covid measures are in place and we felt safe there!
Things I did not like: not sure if there are enough sun beds for all the guests. Even though the receptionists tell you it’s not allowed to save sun beds this was not the case! The other guests had absolutely no respect for others and went to the sun beds early, left their towels or other belongings such as books and went somewhere else for hours! At one point there were 8 sunbeds with towels on them and only one person actually there! Also very rarely you would find guests wearing a mask which should be mandatory in stairs and other narrow places where it is hard to keep a distance!
Another thing I did not feel that was worth the 13£ was the breakfast! It was Ok but not good enough really!
Overall the hotel was very good, but the guests were not the most careful and respectful people and the breakfast certainly needs an improvement.
i went with my family in this hotel for one night and we were very disappointed about many things. First we arrived at 1p.m and we waited in the reception two hours before going to the rooms. on arrival in the room (124) they had a terrible odour of canalizations. the manager said she smelt nothing but it was false. they had the same odour in the swimning pool. However, the view is just incredieble and the deck chair also. the hotel is well located. there many restaurants around the hotel. we can also, admire the sunset in the hotel and take here an appetizer.
we liked the place but the hotel has to adjust these mistakes.
My wife and I booked 6 nights in the "Classic Double Room with Caldera view"
We were lead to what was a SINGLE ROOM which ment we would literally be on top of each other for the next 6 days. The balcony was barely a step out of the room and most of the view was blocked out by the next room's wall. It felt like the hotel management had converted service quarters to make an extra buck.
We immediately raised the issue with the reception where we were told there were no other rooms available for the duration of our stay. And of course your booking is non refundable.
We had saved all year for the trip only to be forced to stay in the most uncomfortable cabin you can imagine. My Wife was soo disappointed, my heart sank.
