Our family of four stayed at Esperas from July 4-7th. We absolutely loved it! The junior suite was perfect! Our room was situated right near the pool which made our teens very happy! The staff was so helpful and friendly. We also enjoyed having our breakfast on the terrace every morning overlooking the water. There are many steps to walk... More

WOW! The whole of Santorini is unique, Oia is totally beautiful and Esperas Traditional Houses is the most amazing place I have ever stayed at. We were here for the first part of our honeymoon. There are not enough words to describe how wonderful Esperas is. We had the honeymoon suite, very special, the views from both balconies was glorious.... More

Went here with my girlfriend in June to have a romantic week in Santorini. Honestly I have nothing bad to say about Esperas. We have both traveled allot and are used to live good - but this place surprised us both. The rooms were big, had our own private terrace with sunset view, the service was excellent and the employees... More

We had a great time in Esperas. More luxurious than we expected and it all started with our welcome when we arrived. We stayed in a two bedroom two bath junior suite that was wonderfully cozy. It suited as perfectly as our 8 year old son stayed in the loft bedroom. Breakfasts were very good. The restaurant at Esperas was... More

I don't write reviews. Really, I usually don't. But our honeymoon stay at Esperas was so special and fantastic, that I just had to make an exception.

We've stayed for 4 nights. Caldera and sunset views were really breathtaking. Staff has been very friendly: helped us to organize snorkeling trip, which we enjoyed and recommended good restaurant in Ammoudi Bay. Breakfast was good, especially Greek yogurt with honey and Greek cheese. The only word of caution: stairs in the hotel and apartment are steep and probably some... More

I had extremely high expectations for our trip to Santorini and was preparing myself for the possibility of disappointment as we drove from the port to the hotel but Esperas met ALL of my expectations and more.

After reading your wonderful review, I can only thank you on behalf of each member of the Esperas staff for your truly inspiring words. It really is very obvious who has truly stayed at Esperas and writes about it, and who just wants to discredit this unique hotel by writing a fake review (see aaabbbccciii).

We chose to stay at Esperas while visiting Santorini for our honeymoon. The stories about Esperas having a sunset view envious of the rest of the island are true! Very few hotels have an unobstructed view of the "magical" Oia sunset, requiring the rest of the visitors to line up on the hillside over the hotel to catch a glimpse.... More
