“Lovely stay and perfect hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

My family and I stayed at the Zorzis Hotel for a week at the end of August, whilst staying in Santorini for my nieces wedding.

Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by Hiroko (super Hiro) as soon as we got out of our taxi and taken inside for a cold drink prior to check-in which was greatfully received. We had booked two rooms directly with Spiros the owner via email many months prior to our stay and received exactly what we had asked for; a ground floor room for my parents who are in their eighties and prefer not to be climbing stairs and a high floor for myself and girlfriend. The rooms were spotlessly clean with everything we needed, with either balcony or patio and Hiroko made sure we had everything we needed, such as extra pillows, kettle and even towels for use around the pool (which is a great plus in european countries!)

The grounds are beautifully kept by both Hiroko and Spiros, who tend to the pool and the flowers in the garden on what appears to be a daily basis. The pool area and jacuzzi was very relaxing and peaceful and on a few occasions Hiro or Spiros would be around for a pleasant chat, making sure we were all well.

Breakfast was an absolute pleasure every morning and by far the best breakfast we have ever experienced in any of the greek islands. You have a selection of pastries, bread and jam, fruits and greek yoghurt and honey, which more than set you up for the day. All served by super hero who is a lovely person and very accommodating particularly to my parents, which was a lovely touch.

The Zorzis hotel is in an ideal location for many restaurants and bars on the beach and within the immediate vicinity, there is Dorians Bar over the road which is popular. Although they are close, they are by no means noisy! The beach is just a short stroll and you can also get free sunbeds and umbrellas in places if you use a bar/restaurant for a drink or food, which again is a plus.

We visited Kamari as our relatives were staying their also for the wedding and found Perissa to be a much more personable resort, for people who enjoy a few bars and restaurants, that aren't too british or touristy.

Each evening on returning from a restaurant or drink, Spiros would almost always be sitting on the patio area outside the hotel chatting to fellow guests or enjoying a cool drink and would always wish to make conversation. Spiros has many stories to tell about his life as a seaman and likes to share this with his guests and also chat about your day, and would often offer you a glass of wine on your return, which we found extremely generous. Spiros and Hiroko are both generous and genuninely lovely people, who cannot do enough for you and always have time for their guests, they truly made for a memorable stay and we will without doubt return, if we are lucky enough to be visiting Santorini again in the future.

I have travelled extensively both worldwide and in europe and found the hospitality and service received at this hotel, to be beyond and above many hotels that would be considered 5 star in major cities around the world. Hiro and Spiros simply deliver a 5 star service and we couldn't thank them enough for a wonderful stay. Go there - you won't regret it.

Thankyou for a perfect stay!

We have just returned from another wonderful relaxing stay at the Zorzis. Spiros & Hiroko have managed to get everything right at this lovely hotel from ease of booking to the fantastically clean rooms and communal areas. Nothing is too much trouble from these very special owners who make you so welcome that you never want to leave, but when you do just wanting to return. The location makes it a great place to experience all that Santorini has to offer. Wish we were still there.

What can I say - think it has been covered by most of the reviews and All I can do is echo the same. I booked this hotel for my husband and I purely on the strength of the reviews, having nearly made the decison to travel to another hotel in Perissa through a well known travel Company. So pleased that I did. Spiros and Hiroko were lovely the hotel was spotless in a very good positon near to bus stop, local shops, beach etc., gardens lovely and at times it felt like we had our own private pool - an absolute gem of a place. We had room number 8 with a side view of the pool which was lovely - Sun first thing on a morning into late morning. Nothing was too much trouble and although we had ideas of travelling to Skiathos next September (and no doubt we would hope to do that at some point) We booked again with Spiros before we left for next year so I suppose that says it all really!! Absolutely would not have any doubt in recommending it to anyone A******* plus !

We selected Zorzis because of all the excellent reviews and they were right on the mark. This is an excellent place to stay in Perissa, with terrific hosts. Spiros and Hiroko are wonderful at making you feel at home, and provided a nice atmosphere to relax and enjoy Santorini. The room was spotless, the price was excellent, and the location was great. Thanks for a great stay!

Room Tip: We stayed in room #9 which had a wonderful view of the surrounding mountains and a nice balcony.

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!

Room Tip: Zorzis have lovely balcony views which over look the mountain and the pool.

This is our third year at Zorzis and it is still by far the best hotel I have stayed in.
Spiros and Hiroko go above and beyond to ensure your stay is perfect they are wonderful hosts who will help you with anything.
The hotel is on the main road but has double glazed windows so in your room you cannot hear a thing outside.
The pool is at the rear of the hotel and is very peaceful with a view of the mountain.
There are ten immaculate rooms which are spotlessly clean all with air conditioning and safe included in the price.
We also enjoyed sitting in the evening with Spiros who will sit and listen to your thoughts on the island, your holiday, or any trips you have been on over a drink. Its a chance to meet other guests and we met some very nice people.
This hotel is so popular it books up very quickly and like others we have already booked for next year.
In a nutshell the hotel is well priced, very clean, high standard in the rooms, well located for the beach bars or restaurants and on the quieter cheaper part of the island. A two course meal for four with a litre of wine on the main road was about €55. Cocktails on the main road €3 on the beach €6.
I cannot wait to return!!

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.
