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

My husband and I stayed here; unfortunately, for 3 nights. Our small cave hotel room was #14. The first day we arrived, we noticed a mold/mildew smell and reported it. The manager said, "It's a problem in all of Santorini." They sprayed some sort of chemical which ended up burning my throat and lungs. The next morning, I took a... More

This hotel has a fabulous location right on the caldera. The views are just breathtaking. The rooms are relatively small as are the bathrooms. Very bare with very little storage. Ask for a view and attached balcony as some are set slightly back and feel like you're in a hobbit hole. Doesn't feel like a hotel because the pool is... More

Our three night stay at On the Rocks was perfection! From the moment you walk through the hotel you are blown away. The experience was altogether unforgettable from the spectacular views, private pool and relaxing atmosphere. Our stay was marked by warm and friendly hotel staff who were great at helping us plan and book activities while on the island.... More

Small but great hotel! Our honeymoon suite had an unique sea/volcano view. It was a very romantic experience. Great welcome fruit and wine and the breakfast was very good with a large variety. Definitely will be my hotel next time I go to Santorini.
