We stayed for 3 nights in this place together with my wife and my daughter. Once we arrived in morning, Dennis (the manager) surprisingly offers free of charge upgrade to Family Suite for us. Definitely we took it and we are really grateful for this offer. The view from the room is excellent. We can see caldera, the white beautiful... More

It was a lovely location, and staff were really helpful. The hotel is clean and the views were really nice from the patio areas. Breakfast was substantial but when it was cold and windy outside, it was a bit of a challenge to have it brought to the individual rooms. Still, the staff were accomodating and pleasant to work with.... More

View of the caldera is awesome, especially at the common breakfast area. The staff is probably one of the most helpful I've experienced. Dennis gave us a great briefing of the island, and was ever so helpful to us (including lending us the microwave oven to heat up our dinner in a cold windy evening). The weather wasn't too fantastic... More

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

Excellent rooms, view out of this world..... Blue dolphins is the only place i choose whenever i visit Santorini, either for business or vacation. Keep up the... More
