The Santorini Princess is a truly special hotel and our experience of staying there will live long in the memory for all the right reasons. The first thing I have to mention is the level of service the hotel provides. Achilleas, Tina and the rest of the staff are so attentative and friendly I got the feeling that there wasn't anything they wouldn't do for us. The excellent service we received started months before we even landed in Santorini as Achilleas helped us every step of the way in arranging all our wedding details. One of the reasons we chose to elope was because we wanted a completely stress-free wedding with absolutely nothing to worry about. Achilleas, Tina and co. certainly made that happen as we had an incredible time in one of the most beautiful settings the world has to offer (trust me i'm a seasoned traveler).
The location of the hotel is perfect for those of you who want to unwind as it is nestled quietly between the two main towns of Oia and Fira. We really enjoyed the coastal walk to Fira (which took about 30mins) so much so we did this 3 times during our stay. Oia is a bit further to walk to so we just used the hotel taxi service to get there. The views all across the coast are just stunning but our favorite view of them all was the one from our room balcony. Simply stunning.
We had no complaints with our room, it's nice enough and has a slightly homely feel to it. The hotel must employ cleaning ninjas as our room was immaculately cleaned everyday and we never once caught them in the act. The whole hotel is setup so you can enjoy the views over the caldera where-ever you are. It's a really romantic sort of hotel. I highly recommend it to couples who just want to get away from the stresses of life and enjoy each others company.
If, like us, you are looking for a wedding getaway, this is the place to go. The hotel helped us with any questions we had and ended up laying on the perfect day for us. It was everything and more we hoped it to be, all thanks to the hotel and it's staff.
Breakfast buffet is OK but what's great is that you can ask the waiter what it is you want and they will do it for you. As soon as I discovered this I was ordering a different style of egg each day (poached, fried and scrambled). The lunch and restaurant food at the hotel are top notch. The salad's, pasta's and burgers are amongst the best i've ever tasted.
For us, the Santorini Princess epitomises what the island is all about. We had never felt so relaxed and important in a hotel as we did here. We highly recommend it to anyone and we cannot wait to come back again!
