“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

This place is the hotel of your dreams. Cut into the side of the cliff , over the caldera, the views are expansive, beautiful and completely unobstructed. 2 patios, one off the bedroom and one off the living room. Breakfast was served on our personal patio and the food is fantastic. Evenings were chilly in April and the warm comforter on the bed was great! The staff is incredibly accomodating and helpful with great recommendations for activities and restaurants. They facilitated taxi's, rental car and other activities seamlessly. It is within walking distance to Fira. I cannot imagine a better experience. It was the highlight of our trip through Greece and Turkey.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms!

We started the great experience since we arrived at Santorini Airport. We have booked for a standard transfer (sharing with others) but we were given a van exclusively for us. As soon as we got in the bus, the driver handed us a bottle of water as it was very hot. When we arrived at the path leading to the hotel, we were greeted by the concierge who then lead us to the main hotel reception where we saw Helen with a warm smile waiting for us. The first impression about the hotel portrayed by all the staff had already amazed us. We have been to many hotels before but we have never been welcomed as warmly as they did.

Upon check-in, George, the manager had explained all the things we need to know about Santorini. He has given us all the useful tips we would need for the trip.

I initially booked for a studio but they gave us complimentary upgrade to a junior suite. In the room was complimentary Santorini wine, fruits and red roses. On the second day, because of plumbing issues just above us, they have once again upgraded us to a Senior suite which was bigger, better and more secluded than the first ones we had. I can not fault anything from the rooms in Astra as the ones we had are really clean, modern, stylish and unique.

I like the breakfast style. They gave us a menu where we can choose whatever food we want to have for breakfast and they serve it on the time we specified. Basically: Whatever you want, whenever you want, as much as you want. During our whole stay I did not experience even one day that the breakfast was late even for 1 minute.

Have I mentioned the complimentary Santorini wine, strawberries and truffles while enjoying the sunset in the balcony on the second day? I could go on and on and on about the great experience we had in this hotel.

To all the staff at Astra, especially to Helen and everyone at the reception, thank you is not enough to show how happy we are for the unique experiences you have given us during our stay. We will definitely recommend Astra Suites to everyone. We just arrived but we can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: The superior suite is good because you have more privacy although all the rooms are good.

We stayed in the Astra Suites, Santorini, Greece in May-June of 2012 and it was the beginning of our honeymoon. I can tell sincerely we enjoied this hotel, this island, this country.

We arrived on Santorini about 27th of May and staied there about a one week. First three days were windy and not hot, especially at morning, but later it was hot and sunny enough. If you need the warm sea for swimming I'd recommend you to find a municipal paid beach near Kamaria.

The hotel is located on caldera slope about 300 meters over the sea. It gives the most amazing view to the volcano, caldera and fantastis sunset.

As all hotels in Imerovigli, Astra has small territoty, small pool and has no one main building. Outdoor it looks like few white houses and stairs, but they very nice indoor. The Astra Suites very comfortable, cosy and romantic hotel.

The Astra has no beach of course. But there are few not bad beaches on Santorini. For example you can find a good beach near Perissa. I strongly recommend you to rent a car or bike to watch all island out. It took about five minutes to get to a parking place from the hotel.

The hotel stuff was very friendly and responsive. It was really good service and very tasty breakfast.)

We were offered a smaller room than we'd expected but it was really correct offer. The room was on the top of the hotel and it was few high stairs from reception and pool. But we got full privacy, silence and own balcony for breakfast and sunburn.

So, our visit to the Astra Suites was fantastic, amazing, unforgetable!

The entire staff at Astra Suites made our stay impeccable. Honestly, everything was perfect, from the room (free upgrade with an incredible view) to the food to the very attentive staff. As an example of the customer service, I asked if the hotel had an on-call doctor because I'm pregnant and a worrier, and the staff went above and beyond by giving me two names and cell phone numbers of local OBGYNs. The view from the property is spectacular. I am so glad we didn't stay in nearby Fira instead. The only improvement I would ask for is to heat their beautiful pool during the off-season (we were there in March when it's still a bit cool and windy). All in all, this was one of the best hotel experiences we've had anywhere in Europe.

I agree wholehearledly with the outstanding reviews here and I dont think there is anything I can add. My family and I stayed in a 2 bedroom suite above the path in September last year and it was absolutely fantastic. I couldnt speak more highly of George and all his staff. Very friendly and welcoming. If you are looking to stay and you are not sure about the location dont believe what you read on the forums. The position is great. Its only a short very pleasant walk on the path to Fira. There are plenty of good restaurant options in Imerovigli itself and lots more on the path to Fira. Sorry I took so long to write the review I promised George and all the best for the new season.

A magical, stunning, amazing place. Right from the first moment we felt pampered and looked after. The staff we extremely friendly and attentive. The views from our room and hotel were to die for. Everything was incredibly high standard, clean and beautifully presented. Incredibly romantic. Staff gave advice about places to visit and eat and booked places on our behalf. The room service and food was excellent. We had a magical dinner on the terrace in the cave surrounded by fairy lights. The relaxation suite was fantastic with steam room and jacuzzi and we continued to be pampered with complimentary champagne, truffles and strawberries.

For our honeymoon, this was a dream holiday in a dream hotel, which we will look back for the rest of our lives, and smile.

Thank you so much for making our honeymoon so incredibly special.
