“We were so well looked after!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2011

We stayed at Ikastikies for 7 nights for our honeymoon. From the moment we were picked up to the moment we were dropped off the team looked after us so well. The complimentary breakfasts are huge as is the welcome - and the view from our balcony has to be the best on the island. We stayed in the smallest of the suites but it wasn't small at all - and the private balcony really made it secluded. We share the pool with 2 other suites but to be honest if was like having our own private pool for the most part. We were recommended this hotel by friends and I will go on to recommend it to others whenever anyone mentions they are thinking about Greece. Santorini itself is amazing - perfect for couples and enough nightlife to keep everyone happy. We had a perfect time - a great start to married life!!

We were traveling in Greece for three weeks and our stay at Ikastikies was hands-down the best part. The location was perfect, and room was great. But most importantly, George and family were warm and welcoming and had so much pride in welcoming us to their suites. They were such wonderful hosts, I was choked up saying goodbye. Ikastikies will be a go-to stop for us in the future ... truly a home away from home.

My wife and I went island hopping in Greece for our honeymoon, and we are so glad we found this ideal property in Santorini. Not only was the location ideal, the view spectacular, and the amenities abundant, but the best part was the staff. George and his team (Don Soto, Kostas & Anastasia) made our stay very special. We cant wait to go back! Mike & Dara Mahar, Houston, Texas.

Ikastikies is has the most breath taking view of the Caldera. The view of the sunset from our balcony was spectacular. It takes you a while to take it all in....the white hotel against the green and blue water is gorgeous. The service is phenomenal, George and his staff are so warm and welcoming. George really makes you feel like you have a home and family in Santorini. The staff goes out of their way to make sure that you have an amazing stay. The hotel is in a quite location and yet just 10 min walk to the Fira. I just cannot say enough about this hotel and their service. Thank you Ikastikies for making our stay in Santorini so perfect!

Gorgeous and breathtaking views of the coastline! Located within the hustle/bustle of Thira but yet it didn't give the vibe of being overly tourist-y. Great Staff- George was extremely helpful and accomodating! Every morning, our continental breakfast was served-warm with scrumptious omelet, fresh fruits, warm basket of pastries. In the evening, Bottle of wine served along with more fresh fruits/desserts. Our suite was cozy- even when the weather was cold, we bunkered down in our suite and felt completely relax and rejuvenated. We highly recommend the place. Will return again.

Ikastikies. There is not much to say that has not already been said. George the owner and his staff are absolutely perfect hosts, their passion and pride for their place show in everything they do. You can tell he has put all his efforts into creating an amazing experience for his guests. Firastephani is a quiet location with a gorgeous 10 minute walk to the crowds and shopping in Fira. The complex and rooms are amazing (we stayed in the Roza Suite) the sunset is incredible, wifi worked great, and the breakfast can't be beat. They set up a catamaran tour for us that was unbelievable as well. You can search all day for places in Santorini, but your won't find another like Ikastikies. It's perfect.

We just loved our stay - George and his manager were great and really took excellent care of us. There was nothing they couldn't do to make us happy. The rooms were great and the view was unbelieveable. Even the 84 steps that we had to go up and down were definitely worth the stay. Thank you George.
