My boyfriend and I stayed in Blue Dolphins for two nights at the end of our three week Greek islands tour. We wanted to polish our great impressions from Crete with some stunning Santorinian views and Blue Dolphins provided us with that perfectly. As many of previous reviewers we were also upgraded free of charge to the private suite with... More

We booked a room with sea view and were upgraded to a suite with a large and beautiful terrace with a picture postcard view of the sea and Caldera. The breakfast is good and served on a common terrace with the same great view. The walk to Fira is short and the path on top of the mountain is picturesque.... More

Rooms were spacious and clean. The hotel staff was very helpfull and friendly. Have the hotel arrange transfers when you arrive or leave as taxis are... More

This place has great location and view, Beautiful porch and balcony, and the staff is friendly, but limited breakfast (nothing hot). it is close to the center of the town Fira, it has a small parking lot, which add to the convenience if you have a rental car. The hotel doesn't have a swim pool. My husband and I don't... More

This is an absolutely fantastic hotel! The views were exceptional and location nice and quiet with only a 10-15 minute walk into the main town of Fira. The rooms themselves are nice and clean and the staff were all very friendly. Would definitely recommend this gem and will be back!

In July 2014, my husband and I stayed in a Blue Dolphins in Firastefani. We had the a private balcony suite that overlooked the caldera. The views were stunning! People walking by would stop and take photographs just outside the hotel steps.. It literally stops you in your tracks. The room itself was clean and neat with a small bedroom... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Blue Dolphins for 4 nights in July and it was the perfect spot. The room itself was great with a large bathroom and a beautiful view of the caldera. The breakfast on the veranda every morning was amazing (not a huge selection but still delicious)! The location was perfect. It was about a... More

My husband and I stayed at the Blue Dolphins during our honeymoon and it was easily our favourite accommodation while we were in Europe. Great location, an easy and beautiful walk into Fira or Imerovigli. The room was very clean and surprisingly spacious, the bathroom was enormous, and we had lots of privacy. The staff were exceptional, especially Dennis, who... More

We truly enjoyed our stay with the Blue Dolphins. The hospitality and professionalism by the staff was amazing! Dennis and Katarina really made us feel special. They helped with tours, reservations, and directions almost everyday during our stay. I really appreciated how Dennis proactively worked to compensate us due to a booking error by upgrading our accommodations and providing an... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Blue Dolphins is situated in the village of Firostefani, which is a 10 minute walk from the capital village of Fira (through a beautiful pedestrian path on the caldera). We have the privilege of being at a magical location in terms of view and peace of scenery, but also close to the restaurants, bars and nightlife of Fira, the capital of Santorini. Blue Dolphins is also connected to the picturesque village of Imerovigli which is also just a 10 minute walk through a pedestrian path on the caldera. ... more   less
