If you want to experience a tourist version of Santorini, go to any other hotel. If you want an authentic, sincere, & truly unforgetable experience of Santorini, Altana is the place to be. As you've read in the other reviews, the staff truly do go out of their way as Angelo met us at the van just outside of the... More

This amazing hotel is truly a special place. Perched on the highest part of the caldera the hotel is blessed with the most spectacular and stunning view on Santorini. The view by itself is a top selling point but Altana goes the distance and provides the complete package of beautiful comfortable rooms and incredible first rate personalized service striving to...

There is no exaggeration in all the reviews you've read about how amazing this place is. It truly is home away from home. Watching sunset standing by the pool, surely that must be what a glimpse from heaven is like.

Truly a great place to stay- I have travelled a lot and can't think of a better hotel that I have stayed in. We left yesterday evening after 6 nights. The island, the view and the hotel rooms are great but I think it is the personal touch from the brothers who own it (Christos and Marios) and the manager... More

We knew our time in Santorini was going to be different from other travel experiences when the owners of the hotel personally greeted us at our vehicle after midnight. It took us 24 hours to reach Santorini so we weren't feeling so cheerful but from the second we got out of the vehicle, we were welcomed so warmly, our luggage... More

As soon as we left Altana we wished we had stayed longer. Marios, Christos & their team were the best hosts you could wish for. Their advice on where to go to experience the real Santorini and restaurant recommendations were perfect every time. We would definitely recommend staying here and will most certainly be going back ourselves (especially for one... More

John Keats once wrote: "A thing of beauty is a joy forever. Its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness" ... and this is how I feel about the Altana. Impossibly....we have been coming to this hotel for over a quarter of a century. Owned originally by Kostas and Sonya Bekiaris...the torch is carried on by the wonderful Bekiaris... More

...if so I would give Altana 6 stars. No doubt. My boyfriend and I visited Santorini and stayed at Altana in late September. It was without a doubt 3 of the best days ever. The brothers, Chris and Mario, are two of the most kind and generous people I have ever met. They are truly genuine about wanted you to... More

We booked this hotel due to the good reviews, and we weren't disappointed. On the contrary, the hotel exceeded our expectations. There aren't enough words to describe how much we liked Altana. The twins, Marios and Christos, who own Altana, have done a wonderful job creating this boutique hotel. The hotel is tastefully decorated and the rooms are extremely comfortable,... More

I decided to pick Altana based on the reviews I read, reviews that focused on the incredible staff and owners. The reviews sounded too good to be true but we soon realised as we arrived that these guys offer something special and unique. I'll start with the location. We were looking for somewhere away from the hoards of tourists, somewhere... More
