My boyfriend and I booked this very last minute - less than a week before we intended to stay. Which is not advisable in the summer season in Santorini. We needed a very affordable place as we were on an incredibly tight budget, however we also wanted a caldera view. I must say that we got incredibly lucky finding Blue... More

My partner and I stayed here mid March and it was just as good as it looked on the photos. Greeted at the airport and driven past the stunning views nothing was too much for the staff. The advice for places to visit was spot on for time of year, the room was superb with private balcony and views to... More

We stayed at the Blue Dolphins while in Santorini and they gave us a free upgrade to the two bedrooms family suite. The views were spectacular and you can even have breakfast in your room on your balcony. The staff, Chris and Bami (I think this is how you spell her name) were super nice and gave us all kinds...

一人旅で利用しました。白い壁の洞窟型の部屋はとても可愛いかったです。エーゲ海に面して立っており、周囲には景観を邪魔する建物も無くエーゲ海に昇る朝日も沈む夕日も楽しめました。何よりスタッフの応対が気持ち良かったです。一人旅なので困った事が時々起きたのですが、その度にオーナーが現れてフォローして下さいました。恐らく客の一人一人に気配りをしてくれているのでしょう。 難点は20段程の階段を下った所(途中までスロープがあります)にホテル入口があるため、スーツケースの移動には汗をかく点かなと思います。 I travelled this island by myself. The room was like a cave with white wall and tidy and comfortable. I really enjoyed breakfast at terrace with nice sea view. You can also enjoy sunrise and sunset. The most important thing is hospitality of staff. Owner came and supported me every time I was in trouble. Staffs in this... More

I had the pleasure of staying over Christmas time in Santorini at the Blue Dolphin. The hotel is located within a short walking distance to Fira. (Lots of Restaurants and shops) The view from the hotel is unbeatable !!! I don't think you can ever get tired of waking up to that view and having breakfast on the small little... More
