“Great location & the staff simply superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

We arrived early and were welcomed with open arms. One of the staff was waiting down the lane way with a trolley when our taxi arrived, so we didn't need to struggle with our luggage down the cobblestone lane way. Despite our room not yet being ready (we were 90 mins before check-in time), they were able to give us a courtesy room where we could freshen up, change and store our luggage, and then relax by the pool.

They clearly do a very thorough clean between guests, as when we got to our suite, even the shelves in the cupboards were still damp from a good wipe out. Our luggage was moved from the courtesy room for us, and we were left to settle in.

Our room was the Carmen Suite, and it was perfect for us. Travelling with our 9 year old son, there were two bedrooms each with a queen size bed, a reasonably sized bathroom and large living space. On top of that we also had a large patio out the front overlooking the pool, with both a table and chairs and sun lounges. And off the living room to the side another patio with small table and chairs.

The outstanding feature of this property, however, is the exceptional service from amazing staff. When arriving at the pool you are almost instantly given ice water which is consistently topped up during the day. The staff are all incredibly friendly, and make you feel like a member of their family - nothing is too much trouble. The pool area is fabulous, and very private by Santorini standards, and the water quality of the pool impeccable.

The breakfast each morning was fabulous, delivered to your suite to be enjoyed on the patio overlooking the pool and sea. The choice available for breakfast is wonderful, and so delicious.

We had an outstanding stay at Aria, and would recommend it anyone. If we visit Santorini again this would be the only place we'd want to stay. Thanks so much to Dimitri, Betty, Kristoff and the rest of the staff for an outstanding experience.

Room Tip: Can't speak for the other rooms, but the Carmen Suite is great for a family.

We just returned from a 4 night stay in the Carmen Suite. 2 bedrooms, Bath, kitchen/eating area. living room and 4 different patios with tables and chairs. Breakfast delivered to the room or patio every morning. The staff, Betty and Dimitri were the best! They made our stay so perfect. Anything you need they provide. With their help and suggestion we took a wonderful Sailboat trip in the Caldera. We stayed in 4 different hotels in Athens and the other islands and would go back to the Aria Suites in a second.

We stayed for 3 nights in Aria suites in Aida, we could not recommend it enough. The room was spotlessly clean and had a lovely big kitchen / living room area with views over the pool, the bedroom was light, bright and airy which led on to a private balcony with views of the sea (on both sides of the island). We arrived to a complimentary glass of champagne, bottle of wine and fresh fruit - and to the warm welcome of the staff, just what was needed after a long journey.
Breakfast was amazing and served to order on our balcony, including beautiful fresh fruit and greek yoghurt, even champagne if you fancy it.
The staff at Aria suites truly make it a special stay, nothing is too much trouble for them and they are always friendly and happy to help.
We found the location perfect, about a 5 minute walk into the main town of Fira but on a quiet street and not overlooked so you could lounge by the pool without being peered at by passers-by!
Would definitely recommend Aria suites to anyone visiting Fira. We can't wait to come back.

Room Tip: We would recommend Aida, being the top suite it meant it was not overlooked by any of the other room...

We have just completed a 3 night stay in these amazing suites and cannot thank Betty, Dimitri, Klaudio, Kristoff and the staff for making our stay a memory for life. When you come around the corner and see the suites and the pool and THAT view, it takes your breath away. Nothing is too much trouble here, anything you need is taken care of. The level of detail in the presentation, service and warm atmosphere that is created by these fab people is second to none. The location is perfect, around the corner from all the shops, cafes etc yet secluded so peace and quiet while you take in the beauty. Breakfast is served on your balcony, the choices and quality fantastic, you can order all morning and they make it fresh and deliver. Fun fun by the pool, drinks served when you want and with humour and grace. We had an eight year old child with us and she was made to feel very welcome. We booked the la boheme suite for her and her parents, this has a loft and perfect for a small family. We had the rigoletta, this is higher and has the best views, so if you can push for a few extra euros take this one. Perfect, stunning, will remember forever holiday

Room Tip: Rigoletta for the views, very large suite...stunning views from 2 balconies

4 of us had the most amazing experience at Aria. We walked away already planning our next visit there. Dimitri and Betty were both magnificent hosts, the rooms were spacious and the views were incredible. All at reasonable prices for the value you receive.

The first thing to greet us upon our arrival was the magnificent view of the Aegean sea, this was then followed by the warm welcomes from the friendly staff who were extremely helpful and provided us with top notched service throughout our 3 day stay in Aria Suites. I strongly recommend Aria Suites to anyone who is thinking of visiting Santorini and will definitely return in the near future!

These suites are in a stunning location with fantastic views. The peace and quiet are bliss, but within a couple of minutes walking there are restaurants, bars and shops for everyone's amusement. We were in Tosca which was delightful, fantastically clean and spacious. The icing on the cake were the staff - Betty, Dimitra, Christos, Claudio and the two cleaning ladies - who all delivered a first class customer service. Breakfast brought to your patio was a great treat. We never 'go back' to any hotel as there are too many places to visit, but we might just break this 30 year rule to come back here.
