Great location, great service. Just had issues with the shower the water wasn't pumping strongly. And some ants in the rooms but that's normal due to the old construction but other than that I recommend this hotel!

Some reviews on here make it sound awful, maybe there are different rooms and we were just lucky to get a great sized room, I urge travellers to perhaps check which room. How big etc to avoid experiencing what other travellers have experienced, but all I can say is we had a fantastic experience, the hotels view is just amazing,... More

We booked a room in this hotel 3 months before we actually went to Santorini. To our surprise, as soon as we arrive, we were informed that our room was overbooked and we were transferred to what deemed to be a not so nice "sister" hotel. Definitely won't recommend this.

I have very mixed feeling about this hotel. On one hand, there are the staff members who make an effort at being very friendly and welcoming; on another, we felt deceived because this hotel is way overpriced for the quality it offers. It did not help that the reception staff tried to short-change us in the beginning by giving us... More

Amazing views and great service. Only bad thing is walking up and down the stairs of the cliff but as you gasp at the view you will likely forget about the climb. Loved this place and it's perfectly central in Santorini so you can go to Oia or The black beach same distance about 10 mins both ways. Overlooks the... More

Back again this year in that beautiful luxury hotel with amazing calidera panorama. In the suite 24 with our own jacuzzi inside we absolutely had a wonderful time. We com back because of the nice special service and it was the same good service this year . This hotel is really beautiful thanks a lot for every one !!

Phenomenal! What an incredible location! The views of the caldera, ocean, and ships are stunning. The blue of the sea is accentuated against the white of the gorgeous hotel and the stone cliffs. Our room was wonderfully quirky with curved ceilings and a large jacuzzi. We were told the room had been a spa. It feels carved out of the... More

Friends in Athens set up our reservation in On the Rocks, when we arrived we were given an upgrade (they had made a note that the weekend getaway was for our 25th Wedding Anniversary) and we were very impressed with the total size of the room, the semi-private pool and the beautiful view over the Caldera. Yes, the rooms are... More

Our stay at On the Rocks in Imerovigli was just the icing on the cake of our Santorini visit. It was everything we'd imagined and more, an amazing location with breathtaking views across the caldera, a building full of charm and character and a good base for exploring a fascinating and beautiful island. We enjoyed our stay so much, from... More

Our stay at On The Rocks was from June 17 - 23 (I'm writing this on last day here). I booked the hotel before reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. The negative reviews on here really got me worried, to the point that I was considering canceling our reservations. I'm so glad that I didn't cancel! Yes, there are a... More
