We stayed here in early December and I made sure to reserve the room with a caldera view. Lucky for us since it was already lean season we got upgraded to a suite room. The place has very good view of the caldera and the surrounding areas from the private balcony. This spot alone gave us a good spot that... More

My family of 2 preschool kids my wife and I stayed for 2 nights in November. We had a family suite with a private jacuzzi. The kids had a separate room. It was a good room for a family. Location and views are fantastic - the view from our bed had an unobstructed view of the sunset! The location is... More

My husband and I went to Blue Dolphins for our honeymoon in early November, and we did not want to leave! The room we stayed in (honeymoon suite with jacuzzi and private terrace) lived up to all my expectations for a classic room in Santorini. Very clean and simply decorated. We woke up to the view of the caldera in... More

We stayed at the Blue Dolphins apartments in the middle of October and will definitely be returning next year. We have been to Santorini many times but Blue Dolphins was by far the nicest place we have stayed in and very reasonable for the standard of accommodation. The view from our balcony was stunning and to wake up to that... More

Location was amazing with a sunset view that everyone cant help but admire. The room was spacious and well laid out with a Jacuzzi bath that we enjoyed. Blue Dolphins Apartments comes straight out of the postcard picture of Santorini. A bit windy in winter but then again everywhere is..

We booked this place in Firostefani after we read a lot of positive reviews. We chose to stay in Firostefani as it is close enough to the hustle and bustle of Fira yet appeared to have the tranquil feel to the area. We were not dissapointed. Even before our arrival, we contacted Dennis to ask for airport pick up, which... More

Overall, this is a decent place to stay. The hotel itself is not easy to find. It is poorly marked, and difficult to see from the road. To get to the reception, it is many steps (both up and down)... but that is all of Santorini!. My wife and I stayed here for a few nights in September. The room... More

The service we experienced was more than excellent. When we arrived we were shown to our room but unfortunately it was down many stairs. Within an hour we were moved to an almost exact room, sea view, everything. Only it was on ground level and perfect. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. The room was kept... More

We have been to Santorini before and promised ourselves a few nights at one of the hotels overlooking the Caldera. We chose Blue Dolphin on the strength of the tripadvisor comments plus a little research of our own and were very happy with our choice. We had a suite with its own private terrace and the views were absolutely stunning.... More
