It was a little bit difficult to find it but it was worth it. We got welcome from the big smile of the receptionist Angelica (special thanks to her for everything and especially for proposing us to go for sailing) and the manager. All the staff was very friendly (the maids do not speak English). The room was nice, but... More

My husband and I stayed here two nights in July and got an upgrade on arrival, which we greatly appreciated. That being said, the suite was still not that great. The room just felt rundown and old, the bathroom was horrible, especially the bath tub. The towels were of bad quality and I just didn't like the whole feel of... More

I was 'upgraded' to On the Rocks when the hotel I had booked decided it needed to close due to it being the end of the season. This is not the place for anyone who is unfit because the steps to the road are steep and quite long. The theme is minimalist with white 'cave' style rooms - my room... More

We spent 10 nights here recently after getting a pretty good deal, and had, overall, a reasonable experience. On the plus side, the breakfast was magnificent and the staff were very pleasant. The packaged massage was excellent. On the slightly disappointing side, the superior Caldera view room was actually a room with a Caldera view patio, not quite the same.... More

We stayed for 2 nights during our recent visit to Santorini. The hotel is pretty easy to find with well marked signs once you get off at the main square in Imerovigli. It takes about 25 minutes by taxi from the ferry port. The front desk staff was very welcoming and the check in/check out process was a breeze. Our... More

Me and my family have stayed 5-6 days this August including the 15th and in those days the power was off for the trouble at the central that lasted several days. In whatever other place this could have been a really disaster holiday but at On The Rocks thanks to the staff who have been really exceptional we manage and... More

Like many hotels in Santorini this hotel is overrated like the island itself. All hotels have very good photographers, showing the hotels and rooms at their best angles with their tricks, so its almost impossible to find a room that matches the pictures. Also has to questioned how they manage to become a SLH chain hotel. We booked a caldera... More

Quaint, warm and welcoming hotel with knowledgeable staff who are great tour guides as well as offering a pampered visit. Great if you are not afraid of steps and want breathtaking views, solace and personal time.

We stayed at On The Rocks for the last two weeks of July to celebrate our 40th anniversary this year. We booked through Thomson and having read some of the recent reviews, were a little concerned about what we would find! We needn't have worried. Yes, we have stayed in bigger, classier rooms. Yes there were lots of steps. BUT... More
