“Stunning Boutique Villa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

My husband & I stayed at this gem boutique hotel in May, the place is beautiful, clean and the hospitality was overwhelming; George made us feel right at home, his recommendations were spot on and he took care that we wanted for nothing. We were staying at the House of Nureyev with a private balcony with the most beautiful view. This hotel made the trip memorable and ensured we will be back. Don't waste you're time looking any further, you won't find a better place in Santorini.

Staying at The Tsitouras Collection was without a doubt the most spectacular hotel experience we have ever enjoyed. From the moment you arrive and Eleni and George greet you they make you feel as though you are old friends returning to a private villa where all that matters is your enjoyment and relaxation. Their knowledge of the island and all of its wonderful little nuances provide an intimate touch allowing you to really get the most of each hour you have there whether that involves reading by the pool or planning an excursion. The entire property is gorgeously decorated against the backdrop of the caldera with classic style and unique artwork and accents. The hotel has a rich history which has only been enhanced by the current owners (whose family have clearly taken pride in restoring it for several generations). We stayed in the House of Nureyev, an incredible room with a lovely private balcony from where we enjoyed our custom-ordered and delivered breakfast daily. You will select one of 5 suites for your stay - this small number is quite intentional, providing each guest with the level of privacy or interaction they desire. I could go on for several more paragraphs about what a special experience this was, but rather, my advice to you would be to spoil yourself, make your reservations at The Tsitouras Collection for your time in Santorini and let Eleni and George provide the rest. You will enjoy every moment as your prior world happily dissolves into the island lifestyle - your only regret will be leaving. We hope to visit Santorini again one day and will happily return to The Tsitouras Collection if we are so fortunate.

As many other reviewers have said, this small, intimate hotel is just a gem. The service is warm and personal and George's suggestions about where to go and what to see made our time in Santorini incredibly special as he directed us to wonderful places that we would not have found on our own.

Although the property is very pretty and the service excellent, the real point of difference in staying here is the warm hospitality and expertise and personal attention received in planning your itinerary each day. We visited in May when the weather was sunny and in the 70's--more about exploring the island than lying at the pool or beach so deciding how to spend the day--doing things that were both interesting and relaxing were important to us and George's suggestions and arrangements each day just made this an incredible trip.

We stayed in the House of Sea which was a charming room, but less private than the other rooms as it has a side veranda (not ocean view) that staff and guests pass frequently. It is still a lovely room but if privacy is important, I would choose one of the other rooms. Overall, a wonderful stay at a special place.

This is by far the best "hotel" we have stayed, although it really felt more like our home than a hotel. The Tsitouras Collection is one of a kind with its beautiful views, unique boutique rooms that are filled with wondrous collections of art and antiques, and warm hospitality. George and his staff made our stay perfect. George continually offered suggestions of his favorite places in Santorini, making us feel as though we got a personalized, off-the-beaten path experience. The staff was very attentive with a wonderful breakfast prepared every morning, cocktails for the sunset, and all other needs met to our fullest expectation. We loved the uniqueness of our room, "The House of Porcelain" , as it was very spacious, beautifully decorated, and captured the essence of the Island (the direct view of the caldera helped too ). Words can't do our stay justice, it was truly the stay of a lifetime. Highly, highly, highly recommend, and thanks to George for making our stay so fabulous.

Room Tip: They are all unique in their own way, you can't go wrong.

Having travelled around the world to dozens and dozens of 5 star hotels I have come to the conclusion this is the best hotel I have stayed at.

It is a combination of the beautiful boutique rooms (one with an original picasso) and the outstanding excellent standard of service from the owners and their team. Food / breakfast superb and even though our flights were in the evening continued support throughout the checkout day. A lovely romantic location where I believe various movie stars have stayed and I can understand why . From my experience - simply the best.

We had an amazingly unforgettable experience. We had not been to Greece before, but the staff and owners delighted us with warm Greek hospitality and food. They were English speaking, and very helpful with recommendations for restaurants and beaches. They were also very informative on areas to avoid where crowds and cruise ships are at peak daytimes. We felt Firostefani as ideal, since Fira was a very close walk (8 minutes), and it was only a 15 minute drive either to north or south of this island. We hope to be back very soon! Thank you Eleni and George!!
