“A Cave paradise in Greece!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2011

This hotel is the most magnificent place I have ever been!
My husband and I wanted to go to a special place for our 10th anniversary. A friend of ours who loves Greece and Santorini suggested we should go to that beautiful island for an unforgettable occasion.
And it was that…superb and unique!! We just did not want it to end!
Our suite was a small paradise…it was as if someone had taken care of even the last minor detail.
The view was extraordinary…this hotel is indeed carved in the rocks between Oia & Imerovigli and we felt like we were the only people on earth! The staff was more than polite and genuine…we even had a dinner at the hotel’s restaurant the day of our anniversary…this was a unique experience!! All these delicious and fresh dishes, the local wines, the alluring endless view…it was as romantic as our wedding day…I wish I had arranged that in San Antonio!
No hesitations for San Antonio…it is more than worth it!

Think Eden East - from Couples retreat minus Marcel the host :) The hotel was literally built into the mountain. We were upgrated the first night to a suite with our own Jacuzzi looking out over the calderas. and that is not the best part - i would stay here again in a heartbeat litrerally for the breakfast - you look out onto the sea as you sip on your latt - sheer heaven! the staff was amazing and the hotel was modern, well kept and just wonderful.

Room Tip: Request a room upgrade - doesn't hurt to ask!

Just returned from a wonderful stay at San Antonio suites. The hotel is stunning and run slickly by professional and helpful staff. It's a peaceful spot - people seem almost to whisper- and a great chance to unwind.

Highlights:
panoramic views
comfortable rooms that are beautifully light and well-decorated
infinity pool
spectacular breakfasts
charming welcome on arrival

Not an everyday hotel by any means - somewhere to go for a real treat.

We have just returned from our honeymoon at San Antonio and we are truly speechless. No matter how incredible the reviews looked when we first decided to come here, well... all that's been said below is true ! The service is absolutely 5*, from the front desk to the waiters around the pool as well as a special mention to all the girls taking shifts at the poolside restaurant...from breakfast to dinner they are always smiling, ready to help with every thing you need, they remember all the little things, your habits and preferences. The food is amazing, especially dinner and can easily compete with the posh restaurants of Oia
(Ambrosia, Sunset and the likes), while the breakfast buffet offers everything you can imagine with an unbeatable view. Although ok, the cliffside views of the Aegan sea is a standard feature of Santorini and you won't be able to enjoy the full sunset here but one very important thing to remember about this hotel is it's unbeatable quietness and privacy. Why? Because you're right in-between Imerovigli and Oia so there is virtually nothing around you and I understand they had to basically bulldozer a part of the mountain to build this hotel (opened only 2yrs ago). So yes it's probably best to have a car if you want to see other things on the island (and trust me the are loads...red and black beaches, volcano, Oia restaurants etc...) but my point being when you stay here, you won't be surrounded by various other hotels and cliffside restaurants as it is the case in Oia which I find v beautiful, no doubt about that, but can get v crowded and loud. I will probably miss out so many other nice things I can say about this hotel but here some more things I can add before I head off back to reality :( .... : free upgrade as it was our honeymoon (they gave us a room with private jacuzzi ;), free champagne at arrival + a bottle of their local wine, free and high speed Internet all over the complex (I find it v v important and yet some other high-end hotels don't have it), all rooms have sea-view !, housekeeping of your room TWICE a day (ie refreshed in the evening) and last but not least...the infinity pool: not all hotels have it in Santorini and let's face it, you know you will be coming here to take those pics that will make all your friends jealous!
There are no negative comments I can make about San Antonio and I cannot recommend this hotel enough.

Room Tip: All rooms have sea view

We have just returned from our honeymoon having spent a fantastic two weeks at the San Antonio Suites. It all started with a wonderful warm greeting from the hotel manager who gave us a glass of sparkling wine and showed us to our fabulous suite . The view from our private terrace defied words. The service throughout our stay was first class in every aspect, nothing was too much trouble and every member of staff was attentive to our every need. We are already planning a return visit and can't recommend this hotel enough.

We came across this hotel when another hotel that we had booked with had overbooked and sent us here instead!! What a blessing!! San antonio was perfect. Was such a nice hotel to stay at. Our room was spacious, had a private balcony with a jacuzzi. The hotel was very private. The staff were helpful. The breakfast was included and was great, served outside overlooking the ocean, perfect. The hotel is a little bit out of town, but is close enough to drive to. Being out of the busy towns gives a lot more privacy. The pool was perfect. Wi fi was free and avail in all parts of the hotel. We just wished we could have stayed longer.

If you are looking for a benchmark to set yourself up in heaven...this is the place to put in your request.
Away from the seething mass of humanity . That is the one star boat day trippers to Santorini.
Tried like he'll to think of any negatives...but can't . Most superb place on earth. Has got the lot for the most discerning traveller be they honeymooners, rich and famous, or ordinary folks like us. Even the aged and demented will remember their experience at San Antonio.
