“A wonderful hotel , staffed by wonderful people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

We have just returned from this hotel which gives one of the best views of Santorini's Crescent bay. The hotel is excellent as is the staff. Special thanks to the two Annas and the lovely receptionists. Note that the bus from Fira to Oia stops just in front of the hotel. All in all, a wonderful place to stay.

Rocabella is located in Imerovigli, a few kilometres north Fira, the principal town of Santorini. Definitely the best way to go around the island is to rent a car. We arrived at the main port and a taxi from there was $20 euro. To the airport is the same. I don't know if on high season is different. There are buses and taxis everywhere but you can get a car for $30 euro a day, and worth it.
The hotel is located just above a cliff so the view is amazing. It has 4 swimming pools, the main one have the bar and the others are located in different parts of the hotel. Just the main one don't have the "unlimited" view to the caldera.
I asked for a senior room and they did an upgrade free to the superior. The room it's ok: not so big, small space to leave your staff and clothes, a balcony with an amazing view, a living room with a sofa and tv and a big bathroom. What else do you need? Finally no one stay all day in the room.
The breakfast is ok, nothing special: different types of bread, egg, bacon, yoghurt, cereals, fruits, coffee, pastry, etc. Though I wish I could have fresh orange juice.
The attention is great: if you are relaxing in the swimming pool area they bring you a glass of water as a courtesy and all the people ask you how was your day and if you need something just asked them. I mean, the small details make the difference.
Free wifi, great all over the place. Also they have 2 computers at the entrance with a massage chair. The gym and spa I didn't use them.
I'm definitely coming back to Santorini sometime. I don't know if to Rocabella, but i'm sure it will be in my options. There are so many luxury hotels along the island, so it's difficult to choose. But in Rocabella I know I had a great experience.

Fantastic view that makes u feel the need to stay inwards rather than go out. The rooms were nice, cozy, of minimal design, pools were above the cliff and you could swim while watching the Aegean gulf, beautiful sunset. In general, according to my opinion, maybe the best view in the world, but you have to pay a lot in order to experience it! Nice hotel overall.

My husband to be took me to santorini on a surprise getaway and this is where he proposed.

I fell in love with the island and the resort was breathtaking, we could watch the sunset from our bedroom.

I would love you go back and this place will always be special to us.

I would highly recommend renting a quad bike, easy way to get around and very fun!!

Rocabella is indeed one of the best resorts in Santorini.. fantastic rooms, spacious and well designed to give complete privacy. We were here on our honeymoon and stayed at the Honeymoon suite, with a front view of the sea.. After Oia, this place has the best sunset view, undoubtedly. magical truly.

Private jacuzzi, great service from the staff, lovely pools (4 of them in the resort, including infinity pools).. fantastic. good restaurant, though limited choice of dishes.

We met Margarita at the reception who gave us great suggestions on roaming around Santorini.. we followed almost all her suggestions and i highly recommend everyone to talk to her before finalizing plans to holiday in Santorini. Walk-eat-roam-sail-scuba-cabs-buses, she knew everything and was very informative and helpful :-)

We had an excellent time here. Thanks to all the staff. You made us feel very special and we had an excellent holiday and a dream honeymoon :) FANTASTIC!!

Room Tip: Preferably choose ones with the front view of the sea (there are side-view ones

Rocabella is probably the most AMAZING hotel in Santorini. It is so beautifully constructed that your trip to Santorini is half complete the moment you reach there. Just lay down and enjoy!! I visited the place in February with my wife, and it truly is the most appropriate place to stay in if you are on your honeymoon.

The Hotel is situated in Imerovigli , 10 kms from the Airport. A taxi should cost you something around 20 Euros. The hotel staff is very warm and welcoming that you make friends with them right away. They guide you everything about Santorini, all that you should know, that too on a MAP. I mean who does that. SUPER!!! The staff will arrange anything you want.

The breakfast is served in your room, precisely at the time that you want it to be. The breakfast is very tasty with a long menu to choose from.

The rooms are very very clean and beautiful with amazing views on both the sides [ May vary from room to room ]. They are very spacious with all the necessary furniture. The bathroom is humongous with a hot tub.

You might want to hire a car as the property is a lil off, right in the middle of the Fira and Oia. But in my view, take a hike to Oia from the Hotel and enjoy the most amazing island on earth.

The Hotel is surely advised.

P.S. - I visited the place in off season, so services MIGHT vary in peak season.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor have better view

We stayed at the Rocabella during the last week in March and it was so incredible! It was raining the day we arrived, but even with rain my husband and I were speechless with the views from the hotel. Right from the time we stepped foot on the property everyone who worked there went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. Margarita was amazing at teaching us all about the island and giving us suggestions on activities and restaurants. I would recommend renting a car if you stay here, it's a 2-3 hour walk to Oia or a 30 min walk to Fira. We walked to both places at least once though and the hikes were amazing!! We stayed in 3 different countries during our trip and the Rocabella hotel was by far the best experience we had, largely in part to how amazing all of the people who worked there were to us. Thanks to everyone and we will be back someday!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Rocabella was originally created as its owner’s family summer home, at the most ravishing sunset and Caldera view spot of Santorini Island, right by the volcanic cliff, but without the exhausting up and down steps that other Caldera view hotels usually have. Rocabella was transformed into a 4 star hotel with deluxe Suites and SPA , but still has that “homey” atmosphere: welcoming, inviting, intimate, relaxing, simple and deluxe at the same time … Santorini, this masterpiece of nature, is a result of prehistoric volcanic eruptions combined with ages of native craftsmen building tradition who have turned primitive local materials such as lava stones and volcanic ashes into organic Cycladic forms and smoothly treated surfaces, stony or whitewashed walls, and vaulted ceilings. ... more   less
