We had a lovely stay here mainly because the view was gorgeous! The rooms were clean and cozy. We got upgraded to better room and so obviously we were very impressed with our new gorgeous room. The breakfast buffet was ample and delicious, best orange juice! Yes there was no one to help with our bags when we arrived. So... More

If you want to have a perfect location for the stunning sunset, go there! The Blue Dolphin stuff is great and the service was excellent. We had the honeymoon suite which is new renovated and has a large private terrace. The driver picked us up from the airport and from that moment we just laid back and enjoyed. lt is... More

The family suite was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was large with a cave style shower that was easy to use. The view from our small balcony was amazing. The breakfast terrace also had great views and the buffet was good. This hotel is out of the hustle and bustle of Fira though you can easily walk down the pedestrian... More

The hotel is on the side of a cliff looking out towards the sunset over the water. Our room was gorgeous and romantic. Very beautiful, with extremely friendly and helpful staff who helped us get around the island and even arranged to return our camera to us when we left it behind. The only thing that could have made it... More

We loved this hotel! Dennis and Maria were so friendly and helpful. Our balcony was the perfect place to enjoy a drink (complimentary!) and watch the sunset. Breakfast was great, too. Plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance along the pedestrian path. FYI, I suggest arranging transport from the airport or port through the hotel.

Everything was ABSOLUTELY amazing since we arrived! The room was espectacular, the view of the volcano, the caldera and sunset were breathtaking (and the best we saw across all the island!!!!) The attention from Dennis, support from the staff and overall service provided was excellent and very helpful. The location (Firostefani) was perfect and walking distance from Fira... which was...

Very close to Thira, 10 minutes walk, nice view of the Caldera from the balcony, renovated lovely room, very nice management that helped plan our stay. Good breakfast. Quiet and clean. Good value for money, as hotels with Caldera view cost much more. Highly recommended.

Looking 3.5 months ahead, I hoped to find a room with a romantic feel and a caldera view at a moderate price, which Blue Dolphin satisfied. I booked a romantic suite, and unfortunately received the family suite with the second bedroom and bathroom closed off. However the room was spacious, the bed comfortable, and a nice array of beverages in... More
