We stayed at Esperas for one night only but we had a great experience. It was very easy to arrange for transportation from the airport to the hotel. Then when we arrived, the bellman carried our luggage for us. You MUST arrange this...it's down a cliff and winding, rocky stairs. The bellman was a strong, Greek, godsend. :) He lifted... More

Clean rooms, excellent staff, breathtaking views of the water and sunset. We had an absolutely wonderful time. I couldn't recommend more highly. The pool is amazing and the food at the hotel was delicious. The hotel is in a great location to get down to Ammoundi Bay where there are many wonderful restaurants right on the water. I wish I...

Just returned back to Chicago after a month in Greece. The clear highlight of our trip was our visit to Santorini. We stayed at a lovely hotel in Oia called Esperas and it was truly wonderful. The location does not get any better, the facilities were impeccable and the staff was second to none. My wife and I have been... More

I can't say enough about this dreamy place! George, Yorgos, Christine, Tilly, Hassain are all true professionals with a personal touch. They take care of everything with a smile. The property is in the elite Oia but nestled in a quiet nook above Amouldi Bay. They arranged massages, scooters, dinner and more for us!! They had great recommendations of day... More

This is a lovely hotel. Lots of steps but after all this is Santorini! Beautiful views over the water. Staff couldn't do enough to help. Ask for a room closer to the swimming pool otherwise you will have lots of steps to contend with. Staff are excellent, they won't let you carry any bags, they do it for you.

The hotel was great. Not too long a walk from the carpark with ones luggage and the hotel was well placed to view the sunset. Not sure how it got the "best sunset in the world" label because, while nice, it was far from that. All the rooms have a small balcony overlloking the caldera but some are extremely overlooked...

Although I wish you had not mentioned the "too many people" comment in the title of your review for Esperas (as it does not refer to our hotel), I wish to thank you for your honest comments. July and August 2014 have been extremely busy months for Santorini and that might explain why there were always people or staff about.... More

This is the best place ever! Quietness, luxury and getting spoiled. The view is outstanding. While shiploads of tourists watch take over the village for the best view and picture of the famous sunset, we drank a cool drink near the pool, the bar or our own terrace. Before and after 19.00 - 20.45 the authentic town was ours. The... More

The perfect sunset view and an amazing experience. Though access to and from the hotel can be cumbersome, the view of the sunset from your private terrace is unbeatable.
