“A beautiful honeymoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We have been here for 2 weeks. We have been treated beautifully by everyone, starting from the receptionist Iota, followed by the always kind, professional and smiling Efi and Ria at the restaurant and Giorgos at the main pool bar. The service is worth of a 5 star hotel and the general kindness as well, the bonus here is that everybody smiles! The only improvable thing in our opinion could be that the room was beautiful and cosy but a bit small...and it would have been great to have a little more space but the wonderful view from our balcony made us feel like home and waking up every morning with a beautiful caldera view was priceless (and having there the first frappè served at our room (24) right away by Efi in such a timely manner added magic to this potion).We can say that we felt cuddled and we strongly recommend it !
Wish we were there right now!

Dear Roberto_e_Iulia,

What an amazing review! Thank you for taking the time to leave you feedback for Rocabella on TA.

To begin with, I would like to thank you for choosing Rocabella Santorini to spend 2 weeks of your honeymoon!
I assure you that I will thank everyone personally for their effort to make your honeymoon special and memorable!
I would just like to mention that our standard room type is 21-26 sqm. This is noted at our website as well. However, we have bigger rooms and suites if someone chooses a higher category type of accommodation. I apologize though if you felt that the room was small. On the other hand, I am glad that you found it cozy and that you enjoyed the views from its balcony!
We are starting a 2-year plan of renovations in our hotel, so if you choose to stay with us again in the future you will enjoy the new facilities of Rocabella Santorini and our renovated rooms!

We would be delighted to welcome you again in Rocabella!
Please do not hesitate to contact us directly and mention your previous booking with us!

Best regards,
Savas

The best hotel in Santorini to see the sunset without stressing yourself in overcrowded cliffs. Friendly staff and wonderful atmosphere overall. The hotel has a few swimming pools, so none of them is crowded. We had actually a small one, just for us at the entrance to the room. The rooms are clean with good air conditioning and pristine bed linen. The view from the room is to die for.

Room Tip: Any room with the sea view is perfect

Dear Sergei S,

Thank you very much for your lovely review.

Rocabella offers unobstructed views of the Caldera far away from the crowed cities of Oia and Fira. So, we are glad to know that we share the same opinion on the matter.
Our hotel has 4 pools spread through the whole resort that our guests can relax at and you had a suite with an outdoor Jacuzzi which we are glad to know that you enjoyed!

We would be delighted to see you again in Rocabella on your next romantic vacation in Santorini!

Best regards,
Savas

WOW....what a fabulous hotel. Great service, the best breakfast, very nice rooms and an awesome locations with forever views. The hotel manager (Savas) has absolutely the best staff who were incredibly attentive and service oriented. If I could import her, I'd bring Ria (restaurant server) to California to join my team! They have a free shuttle into town but are also adjacent to a local bus stop that is easy to use to travel to Fira or Oia.

Great a room on the upper level facing the ocean and the views are outstanding.

When we return to Santorini, we'll stay no place other than the Rocabella!

Room Tip: Stay in an upper room or else the rooms are a little to dark and have lesser views

First visit to Rocabella, after friends had recommended Rocabella Mykynos (we will be visiting there next)....we were looking to go to Santorini, so without hesitation booked Rocabella. We were excited having looked at previous reviews and the website, but nothing could prepare us for the experience real-life. The photos don't do it justice - you need to visit, and see it first hand....it's breathtaking! We stayed for 8 nights, every night enjoyed the sunset (this hotel has the best, unspoiled, un touristy view!)

All the staff were helpful and friendly and we went on the front of house staff's recommendations of restaurants, car hire and places to see and were not let down by any. The free shuttle into Fira was great - took the hassle out of taxis and buses. On 3 nights we walked up to Immerviogili - a stiff 15-20 min walk, the views take the pain out of the hill - I advise taking a torch as the walk back was a bit dark! The restaurants there are well worth the visit for traditional greek cuisine (Mezzo and Anogi were our favourites) and again, came from recommendations from the hotel.

The hotel restaurant we visited on the first night, and whilst the food was delicious it's not recommended if your looking for traditional greek cuisine - mousakka's, souvalaki's etc - so you def need to explore - but with the free shuttle bus into Fira, the hotel make that easy for anyone.

Finally, recommendation/point to note to the hotel is that they should notify guests when there are weddings - we heard through other hotel guests (who were there for a wedding)/overhearing conversations. Whilst none of the weddings disturbed us (as we had planned to eat out those evenings) and the noise was not too disturbing - if you were planning a quiet evening on your balcony you might have been disappointed.

We will happily be returning to this excellent, beautiful, welcoming hotel.

Dear Katie P,

Thank you very much for your lovely review and for the amazing pictures you posted on TA.

We are extremely glad when we get such positive feedback from our guests about the hotel, our staff and the services we offer.
The free shuttle service to Fira is quite a new addition to Rocabella Santorini and we are happy that you find it convenient.
We never recommend a place we have never been. We believe that if we go somewhere and we are not happy with what this place has to offer we should not suggest it to others. The places that you have been at, are the restaurants and bars we choose to go as well.
Hospitality means a lot to us so when we hear from you that you found our staff friendly and helpful we know that we have reached at least one of our goals.

We will be really honored to welcome you again as our guests in Rocabella.
Please feel free to contact us directly and refer to your previous reservation with us.

Best regards,
Savas.

There aren't enough superlatives available to explain the service, staff and location of The Rocabella hotel in Santorini. Maria is everything I read about her on this site. She upgraded us to a terrific suite and attended to our every need. My wife had not been back to Europe in almost 30 years and The Rocabella made our visit as memorable as we could have possibly hoped for.
This is where to stay in Santorini, the views of the Aegean Sea, facing west towards Oai and the sunsets have you pinching yourself.. I hope I have the chance to return to the Rocabella and visit all the friends we made. Thank you, Maria, and the entire staff!!

From start to finish our stay was amazing in this most elegant and trendy resort. Having driven round the island I can confidently say that the hotel is located in one of the most beautiful spots of the island. The views are breathtaking and there are 4 great pools to chose from to relax...

In addition, the service, the staffing and food were fantastic at this resort. We got all the best recommendations from reception. Breakfast was delicious and homely and room cleaned well..

We will look forward to coming back again to this resort!

I brought some of my lovely girlfriends back to my favorite spot on Santorini for a long weekend at the end of May. Rocabella didn't disappoint us this time either... The staff was as always friendly and the management always do that little extra to make your stay something special. I celebrated my birthday with my girlfriends and we had soooo much fun. The lovely staff brought me a special surprise. The pictures talk for themselves. Thanks a million. See you all again sooooon <3
