My husband and I first stayed in Perissa last year in May 2011. We were looking for a quality hotel that didn’t cost a fortune and was near the beach and restaurants. After reading all the reviews people had written on trip advisor we decided to stay in Hotel Zorzis as the reviews were flawless which is rare! I emailed the hotel and the owner Spiros responded very quickly which was great! Spiros arranged for a taxi to collect us from the airport and bring us to the hotel which was very helpful.
When we arrived we couldn’t believe how beautiful the hotel was, there were beautiful flowers everywhere and it was so tranquil. Spiros and Hirocco were there to greet us and show us our lovely room which was a balcony room to the side looking over the pool and mountain. Everything in this hotel was immaculate and smelt gorgeous. The pool was very private and peaceful. If there was anything you needed Spiros and Hirocco were more than happy to help.
The hotel location is on the main route into Perissa and is set back slightly due to the lovely garden. There are shops all around, and the beach/restaurants are literally a 5 minute walk away. For transport around the island you can get the local bus from the bus stop right near the hotel or there are hire cars, mopeds and quads too.
During our week long stay we realised just how much we loved the island and also Hotel Zorzis. We could visualise all of our friends and family being there too, so we decided that we would plan a Santorini wedding for May the following year!
We mentioned this to Spiros before we left and when we got home we booked out all of the rooms in the hotel for our guests and got into planning our wedding! Spiros and Hirocco were extremely helpful during this time as our guests were flying in and out on different dates - Spiros took care of everything.
When we arrived in Santorini again a year later with all of our guests everyone was amazed with the hotel as we knew they would be. We spent most of our time by the pool which was so private and relaxing. On the morning of the wedding Hirocco had surprised us and decorated the handles of the rooms with lovely ribbon and also made gorgeous origami cut outs of hearts and birds which was lovely! When I was leaving for the wedding venue I walked down the stairs and there were rose petals scattered on the floor which looked stunning and all a surprise!
Spiros and Hirocco really made us feel like we were family during our stay and really went above and beyond with our guests, we can’t thank them enough. We have never felt this way in any other hotel. We couldn’t recommend this hotel enough, it really is a gem – we can’t wait for our trip back again for our anniversary in 2013!
