The location is perfect as it is right on the end of the island, but close enough to walk everywhere, so quiet and private compared to the other hotels. The rooms were kept spotless, Janet and Mario couldn't do enough for me, organised me the best massage I've ever had on the roof of the apartments overlooking amazing views (or... More

Santorini is such a romantic place and staying in Marizan made it even better! Zanet and Marios were so gracious and even went out of their to make me taste their mom's home-cooked dessert loukoumades when I wanted to try them. They just don't make you feel like a guest but they also make you feel like family. To top... More

We couldn't be happier with our stay . The hotel has a lot to offer on paper such as its location - we were able to enjoy the famous sunset every night from our balcony without having to squeeze with many other tourists. The room, the courtyard and the design are incredibly adorable , one of my fav moments each... More

My husband & I stayed at Marizan for 3 nights in a "romantic cave". Janet was very helpful and on our arrival provided us with directions, restaurant and activity suggestions. The location is absolutely perfect with stunning private sunset views. It was great to have our own private spot to watch the sunset instead of lining up on the ledges... More

The hosts here are awesome!. Very welcoming, friendly, accomodating. View was unbeatable. Daily breakfast a nice touch. Right on the cliff facing the caldera in Oia. Wow. In our opinion, best location on the island. Don't get me wrong, Oia was still busy, epecially come sunset time, but better than the cruise ship hectic chaos of Fira. Plus, we didn't... More

Marizan is a home, where you are treated like family. Everything is perfect, the location, the caves, the people. We were treated like members of the family by Janet, Marios, their mom, Maria, and their dad (unfortunately, i forgot his name). They helped us in all our reservations, restaurants, atv, etc. and even accommodated constant changes in our reservation schedules.... More

My husband and I stayed in the Private Cave House at Marizan for 3 nights during our 7 night stay on Santorini. We split our time between Oia and Imerovigli so we could experience both areas. Marios was very welcoming upon arrival to Marizan. We booked a private transfer ahead of time via email to Marizan from the port which... More

The most beautiful terrace in Santorini. Each room has their own terrace which overlooks the sunset (avoiding the crowds). The rooms were so unique and were kept nice and cold. We stayed in the cave studio and loved every minute of it. The ONLY complaint I would have would be that the bed was very squeaky. Every time I rolled... More

First of all, Oia and Santorini are amazing so that already helps make the experience great. But as for Marizan, we were very impressed on all aspects of our stay. Arrival - The transfer was extremely easy and they had someone waiting to take our bags down the steps and around the paths. We were greeted by Marios and he... More

We stayed here for 3 nights after 13 nights on Naxos on the final leg of our trip. What a place - it's in a superb location right at the end of the "village" away from the hordes and sunset seekers. We were in an immaculate romantic cave house with massive bedroom, kitchen and bathroom with very large outdoor seating... More
