“Iconic Santorini - 5 Star all the way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2015

The Iconic Santorini leaves you lacking nothing. It was absolutely charming with attention to detail in every instance. I would not recommend it for handicapped, due to steps, but all else was over-the-top wonderful. The rooms are wonderful and decorated exquisitely; food service is exceptional wether breakfast, lunch or dinner; and the service staff is absolutely outstanding. I do not have one negative thing to say as every need is anticipated. That was the general feeling of other guests that we spoke with during our stay.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good and sound proof due to the volcanic walls.

The Iconic Santorini is absolutely amazing! The room was so comfortable and cozy, and all you have to do is step outside of your door for the most incredible view ever. We could just sit on the terrace for hours looking out at the ocean and the island- it was incredible. We got to enjoy both the indoor and outdoor pool during our stay and they were both great! We loved having breakfast on-site each morning. The food was delicious and service was perfect. I stay in hotels all the time and I've never had such good service. The GM, Dimitris, helped us plan out our days and find plenty of activities and places to eat during our trip. We were there for our honeymoon and it was amazing. I would recommend going for any romantic occasion- it was picture perfect!

This is a 7 star hotel in every aspect. Incredible views, each room is a story in itself, the pool and the restaurant were perfect and the staff was so warm and attentive (Ximena, we love you!), making us feeling like royalty. We spent 4 days in Santorini and enjoyed every minute of it. The people, the food (the sweets!), Santorini wine, the lanscape, the incredible villages on the cliffs, the red beach and so on, makes us want to return already! Thank you Iconic!

We stayed at Iconic for a long weekend in early October. Upon arrival, we were warmly welcomed by our gracious host and general manager, Ximena. We were given fresh towels, refreshing beverages, and a tour of the stunning property. The Iconic is perfectly positioned in Imerovigili and offers the best views in Santorini. Hands down! Prior to our arrival at Iconic, we stayed in Oia. Between the two towns, our stay here at Iconic was by far the most memorable, offered best service, cuisine, the views. Each cave suite/room at Iconic offers a terrace and most offer an outdoor jacuzzi or indoor pool.We enjoyed breakfast each morning on our terrace, which was set up for us at the time requested. Breakfast was a substantial presentation of fresh fruits, jams, juices, and breakfast dishes to choose from. We also had a large terrace perched up, with a small couch and lounge chairs. I cannot even begin to describe the views and sunsets! We could have stayed on our terrace the entire time and never left the property. Even when we would walk through the village, we would always look back and see our elevated terrace amount all the other hotels, restaurants, and homes.
The pool and lounge area was very relaxing. The small restaurant was excellent, and the chef would prepare fresh dishes daily.The food was outstanding!
I stay at many luxury properties worldwide and honestly, this was one of the most loveliest stays I have ever had. The staff was overly accommodating and very friendly. Ximena the general manager, genuinely cares for each guest almost like she is welcoming you into her own home. This small boutique property really delivers a true, relaxed, and "feel good" travel experience. I cannot wait to visit with the Iconic family next season!

What an amazing stay, amazing service and amazing view. The Iconic Santorini was wonderful. Our cave room felt very authentic, yet is was elegant and chic with a very modern feel. That bed...woah! The Coco-Mat was unbelievably comfortable. I loved breakfast on the balcony, and I loved how the hotel was far enough away from all the chaos of Fira and Oia. This is the place to stay!

Wow! I am not sure a review can even do this place justice. The view is absolutely breathtaking. The service was unlike anything else we experienced. We stayed for 5 nights on our honeymoon and absolutely loved it.

We arrived to two smiling faces and two glasses of port, perfect after a day of travel. The rooms were nice, but clearly the best part is your private patio furnished with very comfortable lounge chairs. Waking up every morning to an amazing breakfast while overlooking the Caldera is something I will never forget.

The hotel staff was so friendly. From restaurant and drink service to spa and boating trips, everything was taken care of efficiently and with a smile. They all did a great job of balancing excellent service with respecting your privacy/space.

One thing not mentioned enough is how reasonable the prices are for food/drink at the hotel restaurant. You would figure an expensive hotel would overcharge, but they did nothing of the sort. It was a pleasant treat. (IE $5 for a lunch sandwich)

Overall, we were thrilled with our decision to choose Iconic and we fully recommend it to anyone!

Greetings from beautiful Santorini,

Many thanks for taking the time to rate our boutique cave hotel, your compliments are certainly most appreciated!

I am always thrilled to share such positive feedback with my dedicated team, which motivates them to continue striving for excellence and exceeding the expectations of our valued guests.

Hearing you enjoyed all aspects of the assigned residence, amenities, and services, makes us very proud. We can understand your feelings regarding the spectacular scenery of the caldera and the distinctive azure blue colors of the Aegean Sea below. The team and I are all so fortunate to work in such a magnificent setting, but the real reward for us is receiving feedback that the experience and services, together with the incredible views have all contributed to unforgettable memories.

Chef Kostas is always happy to hear that the value of his freshly-prepared authentic Greek cuisine is noticed. Indeed, we choose to sell our dishes at attractive prices for the benefit of our valued guests, several of whom choose to remain at the property for most of their stay to enjoy the timeless setting and various services available onsite.

It was a true pleasure having you visit us; we are truly honored you chose to spend your honeymoon at Iconic Santorini and will look forward to welcoming you back for an upcoming anniversary.

Warmest wishes!

Ximena Diaz

We stayed at the Iconic the first week in October and had a lovely time... the view from the rooms and the terraces are amazing and the staff cannot do enough for you. Having breakfast every morning on your own private terrace is a real treat, as is having drinks brought round at sunset. The village itself is small but some great restaurants again which the Iconic staff were happy to reccomend and book for you. All in a fantastic holiday - thank you Iconic team!
