“Fantastic boutique hotel - a must stop for Santorini”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this delightful boutique hotel. The views are stunning, the rooms are excellent and the staff cater to your every need and are very friendly. The rooms are very cool (literally) as they are carved out of the rocks and have a cave like feel to them. We stayed for two nights and had booked a superior suit, but on the second night got a free upgrade to the honeymoon suit - what more can you ask for!! The staff are really nice and friendly and have some fantastic rocommendations for what to do and where to eat (talking of which I highly recommend Pirouni for their fresh fish and fun atmosphere - it's only 10 min walk from the hotel). There is a lovely refreshing pool and good Spa facilities. Most rooms have their own private terrace (great for watching the sun go down and breakfast in the morning). The views out across the caldera are stunning and the general feel of the place is quality mixed with serenity and I highly recommend it!

The atmosphere of the hotel was very pleasant and the staff were very helpful in every respect. Great breakfast is brough to the terrasse in the room every day. In addition, the pool has a wonderful little snack bar that serves delicious salads ect and sunbeds with great view of the caldera. The locations is good, the local village has nice restaurants and you can walk to Fira (30 minutes) and Oia (2,5 hours).

Room Tip: All the rooms are different, so see a couple if you don't like the one that's been allocated...

The position of the hotel is ideal, being actually on the top edge of the rocks in Imerovigli itself. The views are spectacular and the rooms are equally as wonderful. I personally think it would be impossible to find another hotel for the quality/price that this one offers! But.......
that's only the beginning. You can construct a great hotel in a fantastic position, but if the personel and amenities are not there, then it's just not going to be a first class hotel.
Well....... this hotel equals its beauty with the services provided, not to mention the staff. The staff is really where this hotel SHINES like a light in the dark. From the wonderful female manager Anthi, along with Maria and Eleni, make this hotel run like clockwork and while the reception is wonderfully organizing everything perfectly, all the bellboys and cleaning ladies are working very hard, going up and down all of those steps, to make your stay as fantastic as possible. It just couldn't have been any better.
Thanks to all from Robert & Teresa

Amazing hotel with beautiful service. I still remember the each evening and morning spent there in middle of June 2012. I thinks this hotel is a reflection of the beauty of the whole Santorini island. Breathtaking views from our balcony still in my memory. Very friendly staff did a great job to keep us comfortable during whole 8 days stay. Great breakfasts served on our balcony, I remember every test. Good internet service, nice pull with good patio. I want to come back next year to exact same location. Thank you guys (staff) for great service!!!!

There is no way to describe the beauty of Santorini until you see it in person. On the Rocks delivered in every way possible. The views from your room and balcony are spectacular. Wonderful breakfast delivered to our balcony each morning. The staff is unbelievably helpful and friendly. The pool is small but so enjoyable to cool off in the afternoons. Great location and easy to walk into town along the pedestrian walkway. We will be back for sure!

Hello!
Had a rest in this hotel from 19.07.2012 - 22.07.2012.
The hotel is in a tremendous exclusive place on the rock from where the look grasping soul opens.
It can't be described words is it is necessary to see.We lived in type number Suite. Number is big, unusual design, has the separate wardrobe.Every morning serve a tasty breakfast at any time convenient for you.The personnel is very sympathizing, careful, attentive and isn't persuasive. Cleaning of numbers is ideal.This hotel will justify all your hopes of romantic rest, but at all don't take there children. This place for adults.Let's surely return on Santorini to this hotel. Once again many thanks to the personnel, you super!

Great views from our breakfast patio! Room was comfortable but small. Pool was a great place to cool off. Service was friendly and prompt. Lots of stairs to climb but worth it for the views! Breakfast brought to your patio every morning, good greek omelette, greek yogurt, ask for extra coffee if you need it.
