“Favourite hotel on the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

First of all, Oia is the most beautiful part of Santorini and living on the cliffs, looking out onto the sea every day is about as perfect as life can get. Atrina is one of the most unique and wonderful hotels that we've stayed in around the world. We were in Melanie's House and it's charm and beauty is unrivaled. The fresh fruit and yoghurt prepared for us each morning was a perfect start to our day; the service was exceptional; and overall our stay was unbelievable.

We are used to travel a lot and we try to stay in very good hotels. Atrina has overcome all our expectations. Impecable service, incredible room, great breakfast, breathtaking view, there is simply nothing less than perfect about this hotel. Santorini is beautiful and staying in this hotel can surely make yor trip unforgetable.

Perhaps there can be no better compliment to accomodation than to pay a return visit. That is just what my wife and I did in August this year for 7 nights. We stayed in Melanie's House.

We visited 2 years ago (and stayed in Tholos) but made the mistake of only staying 4 nights. It is hard to improve on perfection but there are a couple of tweeks that Atrinas have added in those two years such as 3 choices for breakfast and light snacks. However, the location, sensational view, great value, cleanliness, breakfasts and family friendly attentive service has remained. As I said, it is hard to improve on perfection.

Friends of ours liked what we had said about the property so much (when we stayed in 2010) that they met up with us and stayed next door in Tholos 2. Needless to say, they were blown away by every apsect of Atrinas.

If you are looking to stay elsewhere in Oia be careful to check out two issues. Firstly, the location. Atrinas is located on the pathway that leads to restaurants and shops - many other properties are not so conveniently located and require walking on an unlit road at night when you walk back from an evening out. Secondly, because Atrinas is located at the top of the caldera there are minimal steps down to your room. There are many properties that have numerous steps or pathways and then more steps down to your room. Remember, you will be staying there when it is warm and you have just had a shower and you want go out for the evening - you don't want to work up a sweat even before you reach the pathway to the restaurants.

It is difficult to adequately describe the wonderful service that Atrinas offers to every guest. Our host(ess) Athina (ably assisted by Jo) could not have been more helpful or attentive and nothing was too much trouble.

As a footnote - I believe that some of the travellers photos posted for Atrinas do not do it justice.

We look forward to returning.

I felt like a was in the lap of luxury. The room was wonderful with an amazing view. The staff went out of their way to help us from assisting in our reservation to helping us arrange our outings. They went so far as to give you a phone when you get there so that you can call for help when you are anywhere on the island. One of the best hotels I have stayed at.

We are just coming to the end of our 6 day stay and we will be heartbroken to leave! The views, the breakfasts (served by Greek gods), the pool, the room, the terrace, the friendly & quiet efficient service - It has been just perfect! This really is heaven on earth!

I travel a lot for work and for pleasure and it is a rare property that captures my attention as truly deserving of a 6 star rating.

After reading Tripadvisor this property appealed. We were not disappointed. The location was "breathtaking" in the true sense of the word. Our room (Melissa) comfortable - high on the cliff - with only a few steps to reach the office and very private. Other rooms further down the cliff will require more steps to negotiate. Minor issues were dealt with in what I could only describe as exceptionally quickly and efficiently. The staff were personable, friendly and just so obliging - nothing was a problem. Their suggestions on things to do and where to eat were spot on. We found places that we would never have considered. They organised tours as well as car hire. We couldn't find fault with anything.

Breakfast is served on your own private deck - the quality of which was excellent. The pool, whilst not large afforded great views. The room was large with a deck with 2 sun loungers,plus a 2 chairs and table. The view - picture postcard material.

Oia is an excellent choice as it is away from Fira which suffers from cruise ship innundation. Travellers of any nationality who travel en masse are daunting. Fira attracts large cruise ships on a daily basis (on one day there were 6) and they swarm ashore - sadly too many, including their guides, ignore basic good manners as they move around. Make your plans to visit Fira and other popular destinations on the island accordingly. They do visit Oia, but as the main street is a pedestrian thoroughfare there presence is a little more manageable, but at times they can crowd the area. Fortunately they do not stay long.

As far as Atrina is concerned I would give it a well earned 6 stars - simply stunning. look no further.
