“Just like family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

We loved our stay at Dream Island. From the moment we were picked up at the harbor to the personal restaurant recommendations and beautiful views from the hotel it really felt like we were in a dream. Georgia helped us plan our days, find great activities and restaurants, and how to use the bus system. The room was cute and neat, the pool warm, and breakfast was delicious! I can't wait to go back and stay here again.

We stayed at Dream Island for three nights in July and absolutely loved it. Transfers were organised for us from the port and as soon as we arrived Georgia our host made us feel at home. She was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. She was able to book a boat trip for us and recommend places to visit around the island.
The room was large, clean and comfortable and we were even able to watch the Wimbledon final on the TV. The only TV we watched during two weeks in Greece.
We looked out onto the gorgeous pool area, unfortunately we didn’t get much time to relax here but it was serene. There were plently of hammocks sofas and loungers to get comfy on.
Breakfast was yummy and open until 10.30 with a buffet of yummy Greek food available.

My husband and I stayed at Dream Island Hotel for 5 nights. I would highly recommend this place! It was worth every penny. We had friends who stayed at a cheaper hotel and after seeing their rooms and pool area we knew we had made the right choice.

The owners (Roussetos and Georgia) of this hotel are amazingly helpful and make you feel at home the minute you arrive.

We were in Santorini for a wedding. On the evening of the wedding we weren’t able to get a taxi. We tried to book a taxi the day before and were told that they didn’t take any advance bookings and that we should call back the next day 30 minutes before we needed the taxi. So we did this but were then told that they couldn’t get a taxi to us as they were too busy… As soon as this happened Roussetos offered to drive us there. We were very grateful of this! Not sure what we would have done otherwise…

The definite highlights of this hotel are the pool area (big pool with plenty of sun loungers), the staff (excellent customer service), location (a very easy 5 minute walk from the town centre) and for me as I love dogs - Athena the hotel owners’ dog. :) The breakfast was very tasty. The rooms, grounds and reception area are very nicely decorated. The only slight downside is that the beds are a bit hard, but then again some people prefer this to a soft bed. But this is honestly the only fault I could find with this hotel! :)

I would definitely stay at this hotel again and will recommend it to any friends or family who decide to visit Santorini!

Room Tip: As it's a small hotel all rooms are located in very good spots. Our room was very spacious and c...

What more can be said this place is amazing, great location, good accommodation, big pool and fantastic breakfast all the way down to the freshly squeezed orange juice. To sum it up quite frankly from a picky traveler who has been all over the world you would be mad if you didn't stay here!

We had a wonderful stay at Dream Island. The pool area is amazing with hammocks, shady relaxing areas and a big pool. The couple running the hotel made us feel so welcome, genuin good people. They even took very good care of us long after we had checked out (had a very late flight the day we checked out).

Perfect location, just a few minutes walk from the more busy streets in the center. A good escape from the noisy caldera side and the urine smell from the mistreated donkeys carrying tourists up the hill from the old port.

We can truely recommend this hotel, and as for us - we want to come back for a longer stay : )

We stayed for 3 nights, the hotel is near the center of Fira, it's an ideal location in case you want to combine sightseeing and nightlife, as the hotel is near restaurants, clubs etc.

The owners Roussetos and Georgia were really helpful, made our stay convenient and answered all our questions.

The room was nice and clean, we had A/C, fridge and the WC was ok. Each room has a balcony in case you want to sunbathe or just relax. The hotel has a nice pool (we didn't have time to try it).

The breakfast was ok, had a variety to choose from. We would definitely recommend Dream Island and stay there again in the future.

located in a very peaceful place very close to fira (you can go walking), with very nice view to the sea (not to caldera) and the opposite islands. the rooms are very clean, the surrounding place very neat, there is also a pool where you can swim and relax during the day on the comfortable sunbeds. you can enjoy a great variety of sweet and salty delights during your breakfast in a nice environment in the old caves of the first winery established in the island. the owners are very friendly people and they make you feel like home. the most important thing is that the values worth the place!

Room Tip: all rooms are very clean and peaceful and each one of them has it's own unique style!
