“Romantic place, outstanding view, great service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

Alexis was very kind and offered great service to us. He took the time to show us were the great places were, provided maps,
He made himself available at any time. Very clean, excellent bed ahhhh!
I would highly recommend Blue Doplhin if you plan to stay in Santorini. We look forward to a return trip and stay with Blue Dolphin.

Came to santorini island and found the place but reception had nobody there so we had to call three numbers to find someone and the owner finally called back and got us into the villa and apologized for the inconvineance of not being there and upgraded us to a larger room at no cost even though it was not his fault because he had emailed us few times to ask us when we were checking in.. So in short, the owner was extremely nice, helpful and helped us find whatever place we wanted to go to. Also the view is absolutely great from the room balcony!! I will certainly stay there again

We came to Santorini from Crete, got to the reception under a heavy sun and we are informed that we got an upgrade to the Villa. It was 15mins away uphill, but it was a fantastic upgrade. A nice 2 floor big house, fully furnished with complete kitchen, with an ASTONISHING view of the Caldera. Day, night, afternoon, the view was always great. Very very quiet place, at night we had fantastic dinners at the balcony.
There are nice restaurants and supermarket close. We rented motorbikes and drove around the island. Very nice location, very nice place.
Only problem we had, is that there were ants in our bed the first 2 nights, we talked with the person that cleans and then issue was solved.
Congratulations, we loved our stay at this hotel!!

Room Tip: Villa is great, do not know about the other rooms.

Blue Dolphin was all that I hoped for in Santorini and more. The photographs of the view don't do justice to its mind blowing beauty. We only went for 3 nights but I could have stayed longer.
We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment which was gorgeous. A bonus for 2 girls traveling together. We were then greeted by Thomas who patiently gave us his time and local knowledge to help us through our time there. His restaurant and bar recommendations were very helpful and spot on.The day tour we took with him was a definite highlight- a must do.
Blue Dolphin is walking distance from Fira. Perfect for us as we like to walk. The only trouble we had was getting a taxi home later at night when walking was not so desirable.
We would have appreciated a pool as it was very hot when we were there, but were able to use a pool at a hotel about 20 mins walk away.
I would recommend this place to any kind of traveler!

Arriving by boat at midnight a taxi is awaiting. A few minutes walk from the center oh Thira. Very good service. Nice people, excellent support for excursions, rent a car and restaurants. Price and quality are very attractive.

Room Tip: The rooms are all nice and well situated, but the Suite with its jacusy is a must. Ideal for a honey...

We stayed in the Blue Dolphins for 4 nights. Our hotel room had a very nice and authentic style - all done in white - including the big bath room and a separate toilette room. The private balcony offered a wonderful Caldera view (sunset included!) as well as the nice breakfast veranda. WLAN is for free and running perfectly.
The hotel is situated in walking distance to the center of Fira with a lot of shops, good restaurants and bars. Our host provided us with information about the island and various recommendations.
When checking out from the hotel we forgot some clothes in our rooms. Alexis, thank you very much for delivering our staff to the airport right before we left!
We highly recommend this hotel!
