The view is utterly fantastic and probably one of the best in Santorini. The rooms are simple the only complaint would be the service.. Our friends also stayed and they complained about the breakfast I can't remember why, but I do remember the attitude of the staff being if you don't like it stay else where...which is not really the...

Our jaws dropped when we first arrived. We were initially greeted by the concierge who gave us a tour of the property. Breathtaking. We felt so special from day one. We loved the hotel so much, we never left. Cancelled all our plans. Aside from the impeccable view, the rooms were so adorable! One negative is that the staff can... More

It's been four months since my wife and I visited Santorini. We can't get it out of our mind. Perivolas is the perfect cliffside perch from which to "take in" Santorini's spectacular caldera. With its icing-dipped walls and authentic, minimalist, almost reclusive feel, it was truly perfect. Perivolas is pricey. We felt it was worth it. To be fair, it... More

The views from this hotel are spectacular, some of the most amazing scenery I've seen. Set into the cliffs, the hotel is full of charm and character. There aren't many amenities but you really don't need much else when the setting is so perfect. We went for their suite with private pool which was well worth the price. The interior... More

Perivolas is a small cave hotel on Santorini. I have seen pictures of it and wanted to go there for a least 6 years. Finally, this October, we made it. I must say, it lived up to all my expectations. We would like to have stayed forever. However, we did stay for 3 nights. Originally, we thought we'd check out... More

We stayed here in early October for the first week of our honeymoon and I don't think there could be a more perfect honeymoon hotel. We had originally booked a Junior Suite, but they upgraded us to a much larger and more private Superior Suite. We were welcomed in our room with a complimentary bottle of wine and fresh fruit...

My life partner and I spent 2 nights at the Perivolas and loved every moment. Our cave room was beautiful with an indoor jacuzzi and seperate bahroom. It had a kitchenette and minbar and was stocked. All water was complimentary and a fruit bowl was filled when we arrived. Although many of the rooms are fairly open to passers by,... More

Santorini is a magical island and Perivolas is where you want to stay to experience the magic. The location is great. The rooms, renovated caves, are unique. The view is amazing. The service is wonderful. But what really makes this hotel special are the people in the front office. Bessy and Sophia make you feel like guests in their home.... More

Amazing views. Very nice "cave" rooms. Slightly outside of the village of Oia but we didn't mind the walk and never felt unsafe. Infiniti pool is amazing. Food at their restaurant is good but pricey. Good poolside cocktails. Whole area was much more touristy than anywhere we were in Crete but we expected that. Good restaurant suggestions but staff seemed... More

Having read the reviews on TripAdvisor we were expecting something spectacular with five star service and luxury. The view is lovely but the level of luxury and service was not 5 star. As much as we really wanted to love Perivolas, the hotel did not deliver and kept disappointing us. Firstly, the studio we booked was nothing like the picture... More
