The staff at Esperas was phenomenal - Hassna, Anneke and Christina. Led by their general manager, George, the staff is focused on customer satisfaction. We had breakfast and dinner at the restaurant and we totally enjoyed the food and service. Dining outside with a view of the sea was just memorable. We stayed at the Esperas suite and had the most comfortable bed and supportive pillows. The room had two lofts, one queen size bed and two wonderful showers. On our way to Akrotiri ruins, Hassna made excellent recommendations for a fish taverna called To Psaraki (Vilchada Beach) and a wine museum. Thank you, George, Hassna and staff for a wonderful stay.

A great cave hotel. The rooms were clean and very well maintained. The view was spactacular. But best of all was George and his staff. Breakfast served at our room balcony was something to look forward to every morning.

I cannot say enough about my stay at Esperas. From the time the shuttle bus drops you off until it picks you up when leaving, you will be waited on hand and foot and not begrudgingly either. The staff are more than happy to ensure you are happy and comfortable. Ask them who to call in order to arrange a boat trip...they do it for you; walk up to the bar to get a glass of wine in order to sit on your patio outside you room, they tell to go to your room and they will bring it. They do it all!!!! It was like staying with your favorite aunt who would not let you do a thing. All this and a front row seat to what is quite possibly the best sunsets I have ever witnessed and I have seen many sunsets around the world.
So then, do I recommend Esperas? Let me just say this; book your room, have a seat on the deck, let the bartender bring you a glass (or bottle if you prefer) of wine and relax. Trust me, you will thank me later.

Rather than focus on the views ( exceptional!! ), the room (perfection!!), or the food ( out of this world!!) I want to use the is forum to thank the outstanding staff that were truly the highlight of our stay.

For me - What really sets a hotel apart is how problems ( that inevitably happen from time to time) are dealt with.

The team at Esperas went out of their way to ensure that our stay was as enjoyable as possible, from our warm greeting to the constant top notch service throughout our stay and particularly the professional and gracious way that our small snag (A Broken DVD player - no biggie!!..) was handled.

We can't thank you all enough for a perfect and memorable stay in Oia!! Keep up the great work.

Wow!! I cannot say enough about how beautiful the views are from this traditional house hotel in Oia, Greece. Our 2 bedroom two bath room was so clean and comfortable!!! The shower was awesome!! Great pressure and lots of hot water!! The pool is beautiful and the hotel restaurant was so delicious!! Warning, there are many steps at this hotel so if you are unsteady on your feet it may not be the best for you!! I loved it because I ate so much and all the climbing made me feel like I was getting a good workout everyday!! The staff was very friendly and helpful!! I cannot wait to go back ASAP!!!! The sunsets are incredible and all you do is step out of your front door to enjoy them!!! Fabulous breakfast brought to your room each morning too!!!

Room Tip: The higher up you are the less steps you take to get to reception and the path to town!!!

Firstly I am incline to highlight that you will need to climb a modest numbers of steps to access the hotel and your room.
Other than that there's no way you could go wrong with this hotel...if you could call it hotel, it's more of a traditional house with friendly and extremely helpful family of staff. I would like to give the bellboy a special thanks, for carrying our luggage up and down the steps. Pre-ordered breakfast only add to the homely feeling. The Superior House for Two that we booked is spacious and lovely. Sunset is best viewed in Oia and Esperas give you a private view when others are hustling around for a view on the terraces above you.
Perfect hotel for a romantic stay.

Thank you very much for the vote of confidence and the great review. Although it is true that in Oia and Santorini one has to tackle steps every day, I would like to point out the fact that Esperas is indeed a full service hotel with 20 rooms and suites and certainly not a house. We have a swimming pool, a pool deck with a bar, a restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating, twice-daily maid service, a reception and concierge desk and many more amenities you can expect to find in a modern hotel. What you are most likely referring to in your review, is the character and decor of Esperas which is traditional Greek and only accentuates the uniqueness of Santorini. Thank you once again for the praise.
