“Made Santorini a pleasure.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

We visited Santorini as a combined work-holiday trip as we had some research activities on the new islands. Overall we found the island, and especially Fira, far too touristy, even in the off season, and do not feel any urge to return unless to do more research (and eat at Metaxi mas). However, the tranquility and hospitality provided by Evangelos and Pantelia suites helped make our trip wonderful. Other reviews do a much better job than I can of describing the spectacular views, super breakfasts, and charming rooms - we concur with all of that! Its not a luxury hotel, but it is pleasant and comfortable. Even though its redundant, I'd just like to echo other reviewers in saying that Evangelos (and his staff) were wonderfully helpful with ordinary and extraordinary requests.

Se stayed here for 3 nights , in suite n.3, and we have to say that this place is unbeatable!

The views are outstanding, the terrace was lovely and the suite was very nice: it had a double bed in one room and a sofa-bed in the living room (where the small kitchen is located).

We chose everyday what we wanted to have for breakfast the following morning and one person brought it to our room (or you can have in on the terrace!) .One day, when we were looking at the sunset, they brought us a bottle of greek white wine and fruit & chocolates for the child! The bathroom was very spacious and had all the amenities (shampoo, conditioner...).

We booked well in advance (and directly with them) and got a good rate.

I recomend this to anyone, without hesitation.

The Pantelia Suites are a first class accommodation. On arrival, we were given a basket with wine and wines glasses and fruit. Breakfast on our patio was included with the larger suite and included anything you wanted at whatever time you desired. The service and staff were impeccable. I would recommend this to any first time visitors to Santorini…this side of the island with the view from the caldera is what you have come here for and this hotel will make you never want to leave.

Room Tip: This was a family trip but the children were 18, 22 and 24 year old daughters. The hotel is in walk...

We were originally booked her for 2 nights, but extended our stay on Santorini just to stay an extra night.

The location is excellent and the room was spacious, with a large master bedroom, large bathroom and an additional kitchenette / spare room. The views from the balcony was absolutely fantastic.

Breakfast was served on our balcony every morning and was excellent! There was also free wifi internet and a fruti basket with wine when we arrived.

I highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Our room was fantastic. I think all the rooms are probably fantastic.

From the moment you arrive at Pantelia Suites, you will feel like all of your dreams have come true...

The views are the best I have ever experienced! The staff are wonderful - Helpful, friendly and welcoming! And the complimentary breakfast brought to your suite every morning is luxury. Location wise the rooms are quiet, but central to everything.

Highly recommend - We can't wait to return!

Room Tip: Recommend paying a little bit extra for Suite 6 as you have a private balcony.

When you first arrive at your room, you will immediately realize that you have entered paradise. A fruit basket with wine will be waiting for you in your room. You will notice that the hotel is located right on the water. The hotel is secluded and situated in a truly prime spot, with the most perfect view of the volcanic island. The view from our room was just spectacular.
Everyday they provided us with breakfast on the balcony. We were able to choose from a variety of options the night before. Omelettes, yoghurt, a bread basket, cookies, cake, and fresh fruit were some of the options. The best part about this hotel is the service. They seriously go out of their way to make sure you are 100% satisfied with your stay. We called the front desk at one point to ask about finding a doctor for my friend and they not only told us where to go but they also called back later to check up on her. When they didn't have an item that we wanted for room service they outsourced the order for us.

The only bad thing I can say about this hotel: there were occasionally stray cats that wandered around. This was particularly troublesome at breakfast. However, when we complained, they collected the cats for our next breakfast. We don't blame the hotel for the cat problem though because there are stray cats all over the island.

The only bad things I can say about Fira: 1. it isn't Oia, which is undeniably beautiful. Fira comes pretty close, but Oia is where they filmed Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. 2. Santorini is very touristy. It is a complete tourist island with plenty of cruise ship visitors.

Room Tip: We stayed in suite 3 and it was pristine. For three people, we had a living room/dining area, a beau...

we stayed at the Pantelia suites for two nights in late September 2011. That is my wife and i and our 2 children aged 11 and 12. I found the task of choosing a hotel on this island a difficult and confusing one and relied very much upon the past reviews on trip advisor. They were almost entirely very positive and now I see why. So many of the places on the Calderra would not accept children and those that did, very many of them had pretty makeshift arrangements for a family of 4. Some had astonomical prices or were stuck away remote from the action.We had a two bedroom suite and it was fantastic and great value. The kids had their own bedroom, we had ours as well as two bathrooms in this beautiful classical whitewashed dwelling. It was like a postcard.We were very comfortable. It was spotless. Fridge, table and couch and chairs plus aircon but frankly we spent very little time in the unit lured as we were out the door by the view. Free wine and fruit on arrival and free bottled water in the fridge and very reasonably priced mini bar items as well. Look, if you are chasing down super luxury with swimming pool suspended on the cliff and day beds with billowing curtains, you probably are not reading this review and will probably look elsewhere.But this place was just tremendous and would be for families,solo,friends or couples alike. A lovely position tucked literally just seconds from the hustle and bustle of central Fira and yet totally removed from the noise and frenetic activity. You could leave you unit and be in the thick of it in a minute but if you didn't you were met with a real peacefulness. We had a shared balcony which was no problem at all and the views are great. Breakfast was spectacular (best we had in Greece by far) served up on our table on the balcony in the morning listening to the jingle jangle of the donkeys as they were walked to the old port to start their working day! As for the staff, again the reviews proved accurate. Nothing was too much trouble. Initially, Evangelos sat us all down with a map and pointed out the features of the island and how he'd rank them given the shortness of our stay, drawing things he suggested we should see. He spent about 30 minutes doing so but would do anything for you. He suggested we would be better with a car. The next morning i said we'd like a car. Within 5 minutes a fellow from hertz was there with a car and contract to sign. (My Tip: get a bigger motor than the mixmaster in the automatic Peugeot 107 if you are heading up the very steep mountain to Ancient Thira!) I had a concern as to whether our ferry to crete would sail. He spoke to a maritime friend and assured me that the winds that seemed to me to be rising were in fact on the wane (as proved to be the case) A boat trip out to the volcano, again a very helpful recommendation and it was a great day out. His suggested restaurants again were very good. By the way, you can use the pool at a very swish hotel about a minute away if you want, so don't be deterred by the absence of a pool. At the end of the stay he asked us if there was anything at all that they were doing which could be improved upon. He pressed us to honestly answer, saying that it was only by this means that they could improve their service or attend to some inadvertent shortcoming.We paused, looked at each other and said then and repeat now that we couldn't think of one improvement. We can't.That is pretty high praise but there it is. i thought that having used trip advisor that i should place our two bobs worth up for consideration. It was a fantastic place with a beautiful feel and we could not recommend it more highly.
Cheers
