“Honeymoon in paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I stayed at above blue on our honeymoon on. Everything was fantastic from the moment we walked in. The service was great and the staff were friendly. The views were out of this world. The sunset dinner was the most romantic evening we had during our 2 weeks in greece. The pool area is a bit small but it is definitely not bad. The walk to fira was challenging but worthwhile...the walk to oia to about 2 hours and was much more challenging. I would definitely recommend this quiet hotel to those looking for romance, great service and fantastic views.

Spent 4 nights at the Above Blue Suites and had a wonderful time. The hotel is in Imerovigli, the highest point of Santorini. We stayed in a Moonlite Suite, a very comfortable room with a big shower and free wifi, an amazing view from our balcony with a private hot tub and had a complimentary breakfast every morning on our balcony. The staff was outstanding, took care of all our needs and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. There are many excellent restaurants within walking distance from the Above Blue Suites and the staff will call and make dinner reservations for you. Santorini is a great laid back island and the Above Blue Suites is the perfect place to relax on the island.

Loved our stay at Above Blue and wanted to comment on a few pros and cons. We stayed at the private pool villa for 5 nights.

Pros:

View: absolutely fantastic
Access: real good, right in front of a walking path that goes from Oia to Fira.
WiFi: excellent, super fast
Private pool: temperature is kind of cold but its private and cant complain
Staff: Superb service and knowledgeable staff that gave us nice suggestions on restaurants which were all very good. Everyone was smiling and was very nice to us.
Room was one of the nicest ones I had to pleasure to stay in. Very clean, comfortable and stylish.

Cons:
.
Breakfast fruits were not very fresh. Fruits looked like they were cut from 2 or 3 days before. At the price I was paying, I was expecting better, like the hotel prior to this one in Greece.
Smell: we could always sense a sewer smell outside from our balcony. I know it is probably not the hotels fault but it does smell bad most of the time.

Dear Guest,

We would like to thank you for your kind review and we are thrilled to read that you have enjoyed our facilities and services, your valuable comments help us to improve even more.

We would like also to inform you and everyone reading this review, that the smell outside from your balcony, it is smell that comes from the cliffs when it’s windy, since under the cliffs several small ports are located, and you can smell it all over the caldera site as you have already correctly noted.

We were really sorry although to read that that you haven’t enjoyed our breakfast, since it is something that prepared especially for every Guest separately and cooked at the spot at the preferred time in order everything to be fresh and hot, our breakfast consider to be one of the highlights of the hotel.

Of course the food is something which does not always meet the expectations of all, and we truly respect this.

We thank you once again for your time in posting this kind review and we truly hope to welcome you again at Above Blue Suites the next time you will visit Santorini again!

I've never written a review before on Trip Advisor, but felt compelled to for Above Blue Suites, as we had such an amazing mini-moon at the beginning of May. Santorini is amazing, the views are stunning, almost biblical, and everywhere you turn. Imerovigli is a lovely little place, nice and chilled out, and Above Blue is perfectly situated within it.

We stayed in the Golden Echo suite, which was fantastic, and everything the pictures and other reviews show. Maria and the team were extremely accommodating, and were always happy to go out of their way to help us out, or book things for us. She also gave great recommendations for places to eat like unogi, which was about 5 minutes away.

If you want a holiday where the food and service is excellent, places are clean and the views are stunning, and a quiet place to stay with brilliant amenities, and staff who will go the extra mile then look no further. We'd recommend Above Blue without hesitation, in fact we already have.

We did not stay at this hotel, however we booked a candle light dinner at their restaurant by the pool, it was our best dinner while we were in Santorini. The atmosphere was very romantic and with an amazing view of the Caldera and the sunset! The food was also amazing and the staff made the meal feel very very special!

There is nothing to complain about at Above Blue. The location is exquisitely beautiful and the staff (Maria, Terry, Yanis) are as friendly, pleasant, and eager to help as you could hope for. We had an amazing honeymoon stay and are so happy we chose Above Blue!

For breakfast, try the French Toast, Greek Yoghurt with Honey, Salmon, Greek Salami, and the Frappe. For dinner, try the fried tomato balls. Mouth watering just thinking of all the great food.

Room Tip: Any room is amazing.

We stayed here for two nights during our honeymoon at Santorini. Very expensive hotel but incredible room with a jaquzzi overlooking the entire island. Incredible beds and tasty decore and furnishing. Personalized breakfast served at our balcony at the time of our choosing. Great selection, fresh orange juice and champagne is standard. Not a bad way to start the day :)
Tiny pool just to cool of, six or eight sunbeds. The restaurant has only two tables, so be sure to book adwance or you can eat on your own balcony and watch the sun go into the sea. Very romantic :) The service was no less than perfection. As far as location goes theres much to see because of the insane views around the hotel but aside from that theres was little or nothing to do within walking distance. Was great for a two night stay but much more and we would start to get bored.
