“Superior hospitality, service and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

I recently returned from a trip to Santorini. I arrived fairly unschooled and unprepared so the trip was truly hinged on the ability of the owners to help to suggest attractions and restaurants. They created a map full of top restaurants and attractions that they recommended and we hit almost all of them. They were able to create a vacation for us that was truly unique, relaxing and fun. The owners are truly eclectic and have interests in just about everything. They also create a fresh, organic and delicious breakfast spread each morning made from produce from their own garden. These gentleman are truly passionate about sharing the best of Santorini and creating the best environment. I can't wait to return!

This is a long overdue review of the flawless accommodations and service provided by the team at Altana. We stayed a week in Santorini on our honeymoon in late August / early September of last year. My wife and I left believing that you’d have to lack a pulse to not fall in love with the island, but that you’d be simply crazy to stay anywhere but the Altana if it is available. The views were uncommonly breathtaking, the food was amazing, and the caring, dedicated staff worked tirelessly – yet remarkably unobtrusively – to make us feel at home. Christos and his team helped us arrange dinners and activities, ensured that we didn’t miss any of Santorini’s natural beauty and ageless charm, and maintained perhaps the best-kept rooms in all of Europe. I’d also challenge anyone whom Christos helped to try and leave without feeling like he was part of your family (or, at the very least, wishing he was one of your oldest friends).

Clearly, there is no shortage of well-deserved, sterling Altana reviews on this site – so, one more 5 star classification may only be of marginal value to trip planners – but my conscience and that of my wife would not be satisfied without publicly paying this little gem it’s just due.

I travel internationally a lot, and this is my second time to Greece, but this hotel made our trip more than I could have ever imagined. The owners arranged and performed our wedding ceremony for us and 16 guests, as well as provided amazing accommodations and great advice on little restaurants and shops to visit off the beaten path. We cannot wait to come back for an anniversary!

Room Tip: All rooms are amazing!!

I was lucky enough to go to Santorini recently for the 2nd time, this time to get married. The hotel was more than I could ever imagine and the hospitality of the owners and staff was out of this world. They handled our wedding arrangements, our guests and helped us find the best restaurants and shops off the beaten path. I have been to many places in this world and this is by far my favorite!

Room Tip: Any room is amazing! Be prepared for lots of steps, but the hotel is quick to help with carrying you...

Where to begin? Maybe with the automatic upgrade to the Honeymoon suite upon arrival. The room was spacious with an incredible view, private(ish) terrace, hot tub (inside) and super comfy queen size bed. We stayed in more modern rooms on other islands (all 4 star+) but the service at Altana puts it in a class by itself. We can't say enough about the personal touch from Christos and his staff. Unreal. From the 1hr orientation with "local" recommendations to the private dinner prepared by Christos and served on our balcony. Christos was on a mission to make our Santorini stay perfect - and it was better. We've already recommended Altana to several of our engaged friends and we will definitely return. I miss Santorini!!!!

We were so glad we chose this hotel. There were cheaper options on Santorini, but the experience here was well worth every cent.

Christos was everything promised by all the other reviewers. He was so kind an attentive- we really felt spoiled. The staff were all friendly and knowledgeable, truly eager to help us enjoy our stay.

Our room was cozy, very clean, and with a stunning view. The pool is small, but as a small hotel it was never crowded.

Location, we thought, was perfect. We didn't want to be in a noisy or crowded place, but also didn't rent a car. It was a 15-20 min walk to Fira, which was perfect for getting to restaurants or shopping, but still quiet and much more private than other hotels we saw. Oia is a very easy bus ride away.

Overall, this is an ideal place for a romantic vacation. I can't say enough good things about it.
