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

We stayed in Canava House at Blue Dolphins in September for 6 days and had a wonderful time. The accommodation is a large cave house, very unique and comfortable and the view of the Caldera from the deck is exceptional. Perfectly located at the edge of Firostefani, it was nice and quiet but only a ten minute walk to either... More

Everything is great in this hotel, the location is perfect with amazing views of the caldera and Fira, the rooms are nice and clean, the breakfast is delicious but the best of all is the staff. Dennis, Catherina and the two sisters were very polite and welcoming and made our stay very pleasant. We will definitely recommend this hotel to... More

This review is more for Dennis than it is for the Blue Dolphin property itself (although what we saw of it was lovely). We were given Dennis' name by a acquaintance we met out and about in Santorini. We were visiting Santorini for the first time and staying three nights. Our original accommodations were simply not at all what we... More

May was a great time to travel in Greece. Although it has been a few months since we were there, our stay at the Blue Dolphins is still a very vivid memory. From our incredibly large balcony, the views of the caldera were breathtaking. The establishment was clean, well managed and very comfortable. Staff were very friendly and accomodating. Breakfasts...

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

We were upgraded for one night to the honeymoon suite which was nice. Our original room was actually just as fine minus the spectacular view which you can enjoy on the common terrace anyway. 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
