“We were determined to stay here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

We have recently returned from this hotel after a relaxing weeks stay. We chose Zorzis due to the excellent reviews and our love of the Greek Islands. We booked the hotel back in December and even then they already had repeat bookings for the dates we were travelling, which is always a good sign. The hotel is immaculate,bright and tastefully decorated. The gardens are well tended as is the pool area. There are more than enough sunbeds around the pool and again as anticipated about this hotel the pool was spotless. The hosts are friendly and the service is personal. Nothing is too much trouble for them.Granted I have stayed in bigger rooms but it has everything you need such as air conditioning, ceiling fan, fridge, tv and you can request a kettle if you need one. We stayed in Room 8 which has a larger bed than the majority of the other rooms and a larger balcony which gave us a side view of the pool and the mountain. Rooms 9 and 10 I believe have got the best views but to be honest all the rooms will be good. There is no bar at the hotel but there is plenty of choice near by and this resort tends to be cheaper than others on the island. We currently live in The Netherlands and had to fly from Germany to get to Santorini via Crete but this little gem of a hotel, it's hosts and fellow guest made the travelling worth while.

We have just returned from Zorzis Hotel where we spent 9 days on honeymoon, it was perfect, a small, spotlessly clean hotel with the most marvellous hosts, We felt relaxed from the moment we arrived, we stayed in room 9 which overlooks the pool and has the most beautiful mountain view. Santorini is a lovely island, we hired a jeep for one day and managed to see a lot of the island including the capital Fira and Oia. Personally we would recommend Perissa as a base as the beach is their and it is a lot less expensive and less touristy, Restaurants we tried were all good, we did not have one bad meal, Cyclades, Helia and God's garden were very good. We also did the sunset cruise which was excellent as was an evening at Santo Winery where we spent a very pleasant couple of hours with 12 wines to try accompanied by cheese, olives and bread whilst watching the most beautiful sunset.

Another nice thing is the fact that with the hotel being small and adults only it was great to sit and have a glass of wine with Spiros in the evenings and chat to the other guests at the same time.

All in all wonderful, we hope to return one day.

This is our second visit and first as a married couple to Zorzis. We liked Zorzis so much last year we incorporated it into our honeymoon.

On the southern part of Santorini and 200 metres from Perissa beach this gem of a hotel lies. If staying here you my want to consider hiring a vehicle (easily done) in order to full explore the island. The hotel has ten rooms which whilst not massive are of an ample size and kept spotlessly clean. There are only ten rooms in this hotel and  most of the rooms come with a balcony. If staying try to get a room from 7to 10 which have a balcony on the first floor.

The pool is kept immaculately clean by the owners (Spiros and Hiroko). The hotel is small enough that the pool area never become overcrowded (there is always a deck chair available).

Breakfast is simple and not a buffet style but really nice (think a good continental breakfast with no hot food). 

Spiros and Hiroko are extremely welcoming and genuinely interested in your stay and are really helpful. 

No young children are allowed in this hotel so it is a great choice if you do not want a hotel full of screaming children, an important consideration in August. The hotel is also great value when compared to other hotels on an island that does not hesitate to cash in on it's reputation for beauty and romance.

Whilst this hotel has no Caldera view - everything else more than makes up for it. If a room is available book his hotel and you will not be disappointed. After all, whilst undoubtedly pituresque there's only so much time that you want to spend inside your hotel room looking at a dormant volcano.

I will leave you with the words of a person who I overhead visiting Zorzis from another hotel which totally sums up the quality of this hotel - "can we just stay at your hotel".

Room Tip: Rooms 10 and 9 are the best rooms (for view/ balcony and quiteness)

Zorzis is a very nice little hotel, and the owners are extremely friendly and helpful. The pool is lovely and surrounded by fig and pomegranate trees - we ate some figs straight from the branch and they were the nicest I had ever tasted. The rooms are clean, comfortable and well equipped. The owners even left a bottle of wine for us as we were on our honeymoon. Perissa is a decent place to stay in Santorini - Thira is very touristy and expensive, and Perissa is only a short scooter/car drive from the port and Thira. The beach is pretty nice although has a bit of a 'brits abroad' feel to it. I would recommend staying in Santorini for no more than 3 days. Hotel Zorzis is definitely an excellent choice.

Zorzis Hotel is an amazing hotel, the owners are willing to accommodate and need you may have and are incredibly friendly. They have fantastic recommendations and local knowledge, the Hotel is 200m from the black beach of Perissa and there are probably 30 resteraunts within 5minutes walk. Bob's bar is next door, if your after a cheap and delicious cocktail. Room and Hotel was beautifully decorated and there is always a positive vibe. Bus stop basically outside the hotel with busses to fira and oia every 15-20mins.

I will definetly be back. And would not consider staying anywhere else in santorini.

Thankyou Zorzis

The rooms are spotless clean and very tastefully decorated. Spyros and Hiroko both go out of their way to provide the best possible service and great hosts for traveling advice or to chat about Spyros former life as a sea man. Perissa is a great town to base in since Zorzis is a few minute walk to black sand beaches. We did the ferry from Perissa to Kamari beach and hiked back over the hill through Ancient Thira which is a great day excursion. At some point you will need a vehicle to get to Akrotiri and other sites especially if you are not patient about waiting for busses like me.

We have travelled extensively around the world staying in some fabulous locations and hotels, no other Hotel has inspired us enough to write a review. However, after a week's holiday in the Zorzis Hotel, we felt that we had to share this experience with others:

The owners Spiro and Hiroko go out of their way to ensure your every need is met. Their hospitality is first class. The Hotel has 10 lovely rooms and we were fortunate enough to have room 9, which overlooks the pool and has a mountain view. Every day the room was cleaned to a high standard with clean linens and towels supplied. The room was very comfortable and the air-conditioning unit was excellent. A fridge is supplied in the room along with a small TV, kettle & hairdryer. In decoration and atmosphere the hotel has a very calm and tranquil feel to it.

A continental breakfast is served every morning and consists of fresh fruits (picked from the garden by Hiroko), breads, cakes, jam, greek yogurt, juice & tea/coffee.

The Hotel is situated on the main road in Perissa about a 20 minute taxi ride from the airport. (€25). The bus stop is very close to the Hotel and is an excellent service which enables you to travel all around the island easily and cheaply. The black beach is a five minute walk from the hotel, passing numerous shops / bars / restaurants. Overall the Hotel is in a great location.
We ate / drank at many places (most recommended by Spiro or Hiroko), our favourite bar was Dorians (just across the road from the hotel) - great drinks and food. We also ate at Gods Garden, Cyclades & Scirocco (great pizza's). There are many other bars/restaurants along the seafront. There is also a wonderful 24 hour bakery nearby which is a must for a cake/ice-cream/pie, etc.

The delightful pool/jacuzzi area at the hotel is constantly being attended to by Spiro and Hiroko; cleaning the pool, surrounding areas and maintaining the beautiful garden and shrubs. The area around the pool is very peaceful, an ideal place to read a book. There is no problem obtaining a sunbed/umbrella and pool towels are also provided.

Spiro and Hiroko were excellent hosts who made us feel very welcome. They were never too busy to talk to us, giving us excellent advice e.g.where to visit, eat and how to travel around the island. At the end of the evening it was really nice to share some of Spiro's red wine and reminisce with him about his days as 'sea captain' and discuss the history of Santorini.

Whilst we had a great holiday, we were actually very sad to leave and we will definitely be returning next year, which is extremely unusual for us to revisit the same hotel/location.

We cant recommend this Hotel (or it's hosts) highly enough and would encourage anyone to visit it.

Room Tip: Although the Hotel is situated on the main road, no noise was heard in the evenings. All rooms have...
