“"Perfection"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

We stayed 3 days and 2 nights and we were so much overwhelmed with the warm welcome of the owner and staff. From the time David picked us up at the port, until we were dropped off at the airport, they made sure we all have what we needed before we could ask or even think of what we needed. The food was fantastic!! Souffle was great!! All the food they recommended was 'ohh sooo good!!' Thank you to all restaurant staff:-) To Maria at th Spa, Mr George for arranging all our travel plans. To the owners, Achilles and Alex who are so approachable, down to earth and humble. Out stay was a blast! And has made our stay in Santorini sooo more fun!!! We would definitely recommend staying here. It's THE MOST stress-free vaation ever! A unique hotel with extraordinary people!!!

Stayed for four nights early October for our sons wedding. We couldn't have asked for a better location or more friendly staff. From the moment the taxi picked us up at the airport to when we were dropped off again five days later we could not have had better service from all the staff, who were efficient and above all friendly. The room itself was on the first floor, with stunning views across the caldera from the good sized balcony. Plenty of space in the room, and a very comfortable bed with views straight across to the volcano. The location on the cliff edge, halfway between Fira and Oia, was perfect. You can walk along the old road on the cliff edge in both directions to either Imerovigli or Oia, or catch the local buses in either direction just 50m from the hotel. Food was excellent, with a wide choice from snacks (pizza - more like a full meal, two of us could not finish it although it was superb) to full meals.
The wedding reception itself was faultless, service and food excellent. Many thanks to all the staff for making a great day even better. This has set the standard for future holidays by the sea, and I suspect it will be hard to beat.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 9, fantastic views from the first floor. Only a few steps to the restaurant and p...

Stayed here in late September, and this place was just perfect. The staff were just so friendly and helpful (Igor in particular), the whole site was spotless, constantly being cleaned, and the views were postcard quality. Serene, idyllic, just superb. There are many reviews suggesting that Oia has the best sunsets, well we did both Imerovigli and Oia sunsets, and personally we rate Imerovigli's better. The breakfasts were also fantastic. Thanks to all the staff at Santorini Princess for making our stay so enjoyable. Highly recommended.

It is different from your typital 5 star hotels, feel like living in the cave, stone age era, the bedrooms are a little dark, but of course, it is in the cave. Our living room facing the ocean, every night we will have a glass of wine and chatting with friends on the balcony and looking at the sunset. Santorini is simplely one of most beautiful place in the world.
Breakfast is simple but good quality food.

My wife and I stayed for a week and we had a wonderful time. The view from all parts of the Hotel including the balcony of our room was stunning. We have rarely encountered a team of people who are so helpful and accommodating of all requests. I have seen some reviews that criticise the location however as far as we were concerned that was one of the chief benefits. It is very quiet area making for a peaceful holiday but access to the nearest towns is very easy by bus and the hotel operates an excellent shuttle service using its own cars. There are a couple of tavernas within a few minutes walk the nearest is a handy place for a simple lunch and a beer at lunchtime (Iris) although we did not eat there in the evening so cannot comment on its quality. Taverna Tasos is a 10 minute walk up the path to Imerovigli and is a simple but excellent place to have a meal (see review).
Our room was slightly smaller than we expected but in every other respect was excellent.
A couple of minor criticisms. Although there are plenty of nice outdoor seating areas in and around the hotel the pool area is relatively small. Drinks service is good but the hotel does not have a bar area where you can be seated either during the day or in the evening. Drinks particularly wine and cocktails were relatively expensive and maybe slightly lower price points would encourage more people to eat and drink at the hotel but it has to be said that Santorini is generally expensive for food and drink and probably the hotel fits into this pattern
An excellent and generous breakfast is served in the restaurant which has a lovely view of the caldera
Overall our stay was very good and I cannot praise the staff highly enough for their service. You are made to feel extremely welcome and an important guest

Room Tip: Prefer to be in one of the elevated rooms for the view and away from general walking areas and pool

Stayed here in one of the larger rooms or 5 nights at the end of Septemer 2013.....Can't rate highly enough. Accommodation was clean and big (we had no problems with beds/sheets) and cleaned well daily. Having to use the bin for toilet paper was really no issue and the whole of ths island has to do it, its not just something the Pricess does as i I think some reviewews wrongly suggested. The service was so good it made you feel the ratio was 1:1, nothing was too much trouble and they were really friendly and chatty. The breakfast was fantastic and we tried lunch and dinner at the restaurant and always good. We had cocktails served by the pool and always were given nibbles to go with them. Never had a problem getting a sun lounger and the box of books by the side of the pool to help yourself to was a bonus for me. The shuttle bus was always available for us to go in and out of Fira and we did hire a car for the day and pottered around but not that much to do elsewhere and were glad to get back to the serenity of the Princess......

We will definitely be back and in fact may bring our kids one day for a family vacation and perhaps try their new private 3 story villas with own pool at a different location...

Well done to the owners and the management for such a lovely property.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 3 and perhaps next time would like one of the higher ones just to be out of the wa...

I thought the pictures for this place were photoshopped. To my (happy) surprise, the place looks even better in person! This is the perfect honeymoon destination. The owners and staff are magnificent (Mr George, you rock!), the service is 5 stars, and did I mention the breathtaking view??? You will not regret this place. I can't wait to go back...

Room Tip: Every room has a picture perfect view.
