“Very close to heaven...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2011

We've spent 1 week, celebrating our Honeymoon. I don't even know where to start - the place is perfect. The location is amazing - astonishing view, nice cool breeze. If you traveling by public transport there is a bus station near by.
The staff is so friendly you want to take them home with you. Rooms are really nice - classic greek and with great view.
And the food. If so far you were not convinced - just come for lunch. Or dinner. The food is like a Michelin star restaurant - every meal is a state of the art. Even the "simple" breakfast is amazing.
Spa is really good - just make sure you book in advance.

We had high expectations for Santorini and the Santorini Princess all of which exceeded our expectation. We have been to many 5 star places around the world, but this stay was unique. The hotel is run by 2 brothers Alex and Achilles. They take a lot of pride in their hotel and it shows by their staff who could not do enough for you. The location is 10 minutes in either direction of Thira and Oia. The Princess runs a van on an as needed basis up until 12:00AM, which was great. It was nice to escape the towns back to this paradise. The views from the hotel were nothing short of spectacular. Pictures don't even do it justice. The same holds true for the complete island. We had 3 teenagers with us (17, 18 and 19 years old). Knowing Santorini was a honeymoon destination we were concerned they would have enough to do and that the Santorini Princess would have enough action in its 22 room boutique hotel. Much to our surprise the island offered so much for our teenage children and a very safe feeling. Equally as important they preferred the hotel even though it was not in either major town. I wasn't sure they would appreciate the beauty of the views and phenominal service. It was a trip they nor us will never forget. Here is a short list of some of the highlights of our trip (ATV around the island to Perivolas Black Beach, Catamaran trip to red beach and volcanic hot springs, bars/clubs in Thira, Sunsets in Oia, and magnificent views from restaurants on the cliffside in Oia). We felt safe enough to leave our kids in Thira or Oia at night to enjoy the night life. This was a once in life time trip that we will never forgot and we thank the Santorini Princess and its staff for making it the highlight of our Santorini, Mykonos and Athens visit to Greece!

The most relaxing vacation we have had as a family. Something there really gets you to sleep like a baby. The location is perfect – on the hiking trail between Imerovigli and Oia – you get the great sunsets – the hiking to both towns without the hike up and down from your room each day was a treat! (You will see people in Oia and Imerovigli hiking up to get to breakfast from their hotel rooms) The bungalow style rooms are set in a way to make it seem like you are in a mini-neighborhood. It was fun to meet your neighbors who were outside on their patio at sunset too! A very friendly setting. The staff at the Princess makes you feel so welcome and well taken care of throughout the stay. You are greeted – bags taken away – given a tour – a welcoming drink – information on the island and all smiles. We also got to see 2 weddings – which were so beautiful. And the hotel executed these without any interruption to the rest of the guests. Alex and Achilles are so charming and have taken such care in creating a perfect environment! The food is also delicious – the breakfast is very pleasant up on the top of the hotel overlooking the sea – dinner in the same location for sunset is so pretty. We rented a little car (which the staff arranged for us) and had a great time driving all over the island. SO much to see – beaches, winery, ruins. The most beautiful sunsets you will see anywhere. It is worth going out to the end of Oia to see the sunset from the end of the island. Can not say enough about how much we enjoyed the Princess. I use Trip Advisor and love the info – I have never taken the time to write about any of the other trips we have been on. This place is that good – you will love it!

Room Tip: Rent a car for at least a day - so fun to cruise around the island - go to the beach in Perivolos!

We stayed at the Santorini Princess from August 6th - 9th, 2011 and we were so pleased with the accommodations and service. Everyone went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. The hotel amenities were terrific. The view was absolutely gorgeous especially from the pool area or the restaurant where you could watch the spectucular sunset. We had a lot of questions about the island and wanted to make the most of our short trip and the staff was so helpful in directing us as well as providing transporation, referring us to restaurants, the best beaches etc...We were traveling with our two children and they had a unit to accommodate all four of us with the children in the their own bedroom. My parents had the unit next door and were also extremely pleased with their stay. There is also a beautiful table and umbrella and chairs outside of each unit to enjoy the breathtaking view. It was quiet on this side of the island which we welcomed at night and we traveled the short distance to Thira during the day. We had one small issue with the aircondition unit in the master bedroom which they repaired IMMEDIATELY upon request. I could not have been happier.

Everything was just fabulous. Alex, Achilles and their team were just great and nothing was too much trouble. The location was idyllic. Having read other trip advisor reviews, my expections were rather high but I was not disappointed. This place is somewhere where everybody should go once in their lives - or maybe not because some of the majic may be lost!! Can't wait to go back.

WOW, WOW, WOW, WOW.

Thank you Achilleas and your team for the perfect wedding.

We had 56 guests and they all could not believe how perfect our wedding was - it's been described as 'magical, a fairytale, perfect, stunning' and lots more.

We stayed for 3 nights in the honeymoon suite and I really can't express how stunning the room, location and staff were. I couldn't even move a sunbed 2m without being helped by someone.

This is truly the best hotel we have ever stayed in. It is hard to single out the people who made our stay perfect but here goes:

Achilleas - the main man - brilliant with the wedding planning.
Carly - assisted the bride during the wedding day and me during our stay. So helpful and nice.
Igor and his B unit work colleague - the best, happiest, helpful people, our wedding guests loved you and wish Partizan Belgrade all the best.
Alexandros - Smiling and charming all the time
David - drive you anywhere at anytime.

One word to describe the experience

PERFECT

We stayed at the Princess for 3 nights the first week of July. We absolutely loved this place. Everything was perfect. The rooms, the service and the amazing view.
Don't stay anywhere else in Santorini.
A special thanks to David, the driver, who always seemed to be around when we needed him.
