Pros:
-Breakfast was great
-Staff was very nice and accommodating (Dennis and Alexis)
-Great view of the caldera from our terrace
-Less than 5 minutes walk downhill to the Firostefani bus stop where you can travel to any of the other towns (Fira, Oia)
-20 minutes walk to the main Fira square (not 10 minutes as suggested by the staff)

Cons:
-Wifi did not work consistently in our room (only worked by the door)
-Our room completely lacked decor (bare white walls only)
-The bed did not have a backboard (did not look like the pictures)
-The bathroom did not look anything like the pictures on tripadvisor (i.e. it was an older style). It was small and claustrophobic

Dear Guest ,

We would like to reply to your recent not positive comment .
The room you stayed is among our most praised ones, with a very large veranda, large sun beds and breathtaking view to the Volcano. I checked in with you, in the place and you were amazed about how large and private your balcony was.
You came at 6 o clock in the morning and had booked a room for 2pm. However, we offered you another room to sleep till that time and breakfast at no extra charge. You were happy at the room during the first day, but at 8pm you asked us to change your room and that was impossible, as the hotel was full. The truth is that you wished to get the Honeymoon Jacuzzi suite and your kept on showing us photos of this room, but did not want to spend more money in order to move . You just wanted us to offer it for free.
Then, you started complaining about Wi-Fi, which we checked together several times during your stay with my i-phone and it was working well.
Then you found out that a lamp was missing!!! in the bathroom and which we replaced within 2 minutes.
Finally , you asked us to arrange you a 5am transfer service after midnight , which is difficult in such a busy and touristic place, but we arranged this, too.
We work hard to satisfy our guests and we did our best to satisfy your needs during your stay. We are really disappointed to get a 2 grade evaluation out of 5, after all this effort we did during your stay.
We would like to express our sadness for not appreciating our hospitality and warm welcome .
In Bluedolphins we are focused on our guests and will continue servicing them to make their vacation in Santorini a unique experience.

Will definitely be returning to Blue Dolphins to enjoy the view and hospitality. Warmly welcomed and helped by Dennis upon arrival. Arranged a wonderful room with good, clean facilities and additional features at short notice. Outside area has the classic Santorini decor with breath-taking views overlooking the hillside houses and caldera.

with marvelous sea view and friendly clerk, both my friend and I really had a great experience for staying in Santorini. In addition, it only takes about 15 mins from hotel to the down town Fira by walk.

Very beautiful seaview with clean room and friendly clerks, and more important thing is hotel locate in a quiet and beautiful conner with perfect seaview infront of the rooms, so you do not need to worried about the visitors who passed by will distourb your moment at all.
both I and my friend enjoyed a wonderful holiday at Santorini staying at Blue Dolphins. When you sit at the hotel's platform enjoy a quiet breakfast and see the boats and birds across the beautiful blue sea, it's one of the most wonderful moment in the holiday.
Choose this hotel is the most correct thing in my journey, pay a little and own the whole Agensea.

Room Tip: Perfect Seaview

A relax, clean, confortable hotel, just like stay at home. An excellent choice we made for our honeymoon.

Blue Dolphines have great view and located in Firostefani which only 10 to 15 mins by walk to Fira.

The owner is very friendly and thanks him for upgraded our room to honeymoon suit!

My family and I stayed at the Blue Dolphin in Santorini in 2012. It was so beautiful. The Blue Dolphin was an excellent choice for us. Walking distance to everything!! My children loved the hotel and of course its amazing breakfast:) With easy access to WiFi we were able to stay connected to friends and family by sending photos of the amazing view from our rooms!
Thank you Blue Dolphin! We are returning this summer and hope to stay there again.
