“Definitely not 5* !!! Maybe 3*!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

1 - Hotel is near the airport so if you want to sleep please go to another hotel.
2 - We asked the staff if the sound is very load when an airplane takes off... they said: " You won't hear a thing" - Bulls***!
3 - Our room number was 902 so ... if you want a "Completely renovated bathrooms or shower" get another room.
4 - The bathroom looked terrible for 5*. I uploaded a pic with the towel. Remember... this is a 5* hotel.
5 - "WiFi Internet" this is a joke :)) you will get a WiFi connection outside the room, near the pool.
6 - My TV did not work... yeah we did not use it because we were on vacation, but: "LCD TV" this is the second joke, it was an old Philips TV, definitely not LCD!
7 - Food was OK but very expensive!
8 - The pool and the garden are very beautiful, this are the only things that I liked there.

And....

9 - This was my first trip to Santorini and I would recommend to anyone how wants to spend a beautiful vacation on this island to avoid this hotel.

All the quoted text are from their official website.

Room Tip: Go to a different hotel!!!

Positives: Small complex located on a beautiful island, looks like a boutique hotel, great food for dinner and lunch, big pool, direct access to the beach, good customer service. It is close to the airport, but flights are infrequent, so they did not bother us. The staff members are nice, helpful, with a great sense of humor, especially Eleni and Marianna. Negatives: You should go for a suite, if you want to have a room like the ones presented on the site and the breakfast is not so variate. However, the it was one of the best vacation we ever had. :)

Room Tip: Go for a suite with balcony (higher floor).

To justify the title of my review I begin with the fact that I had the room orientated toward airport, 150-200m from the landing and take off track (you can check the hotel's location on Google Maps). I had to get use to sleep between planes (especially take offs) because the hotel is at the end of the track where the airplanes throttle their engines before getting speed for take off. In my room felt like the plane was going to get inside any minute. I coud get maximum 5 hours of sleep per night. During the day there are also helicopters and military aircrafts.
The staff is generally friendly and try to help you. Breakfast was average, the dinner much better.
This hotel is 3 stars max. I would never go back there, in fact I don't plan to ever go back to Santorini.

I noticed there is not many reviews about this hotel so I decided to write one after my experience. Firstly we arrived and there was "bad damage" to our room whatever that meant, no other rooms available so after much arguing was resigned to the fact we had to stay at a different hotel for one night the Mediterranean beach. which was awful. room smelled like drains! The hotel staff did however offer us a free upgrade to a junior suite and two free dinners and a spa treatment. The room upgrade never come it was still a double. It had been refurbished (some haven't) and was itself a nice room if not a little small. But not what we had been promised. We were sick of arguing and just wanted to enjoy our holiday so after seeing another room (not refurbished) little bigger i.e another bed - but not a suite we decided as it was clean and done up to accept their offer and move forward, It turns out we weren't the only ones moved . It seems the whole island just accepts bookings whether they have rooms or not and just worries about it when you arrive. Friends of ours got moved 4 times at a different hotel in 2 weeks . Let me first tell you about the planes. YES you notice them don't let anybody tell you that you don't there were flights coming in and out , helicopters and army aircraft. Not 6 like our rep told us more like 12+ you do get used to them I cant say they really annoyed me but they are noisy! the hotel is situated right along side of the runway! our friends joked that we didn't need a taxi from the airport just wire cutters to get through! . As for the beach mentioned by the other review. god knows who wrote that! you are not on the beach you just have a pool. Kamari is lovely lots of bars , restaurants and shops its 5 minutes away in a taxi or you can use the courtesy bus which is free to Olympic customers or 2 euros each otherwise. The buses are early in the morning , then at 1pm and 6pm we always got a taxi back. You can not walk it! its too far and the roads are mainly unlit . The hotel is luxury by santorini standards but I would say it is more like a 3+ the pool area is nice with padded sun loungers and everywhere is kept clean, staff are friendly and helpful . Breakfast is the usual without beans! and they also have pancakes which is nice. The pool / snack bar is average but the a la carte menu is good. We ate out most nights in kamari which was reasonably priced and good food. We enjoyed our stay at the imperial med but if I went again I would stay somewhere closer to kamari, if you are not bothered about being out of it then you will enjoy it. But don't expect luxury all in all I did enjoy it and would not say never again to santorini / kamari but I think this hotel was a little too far out of it for us .

Room Tip: get a room that's been refurbished !

Stayed in this hotel for 5 days. The hotel is right on the beach, really very beautiful, spacious rooms, everything is clean, huge terrace, well-kept hotel area. Very tasty breakfast and a really good dinner. Helpful staff. Until the last day i didn't notice that right across the street was located an airport =)

This is a luxury hotel (in Greek standards anyway ;) where we stayed only one night on our way out of Santorini. We had time to visit the pool in the evening and it was very nice. The staff there was friendly and service fast. The sunbeds are imaginative and comfortable.

The room was all white stone, spacious and very clean. All the equipment worked flawlessly. Bed was good and pillow great (not the rock slab you usually get in greek hotels). You can hear planes taking off a few times in the night but not too often, luckily.

The breakfast was also great, lots of stuff to choose from, both salty and sweet.

Unfortunately we didn't have time to check out the spa or other facilities provided by the hotel.

The drawback is the location. Yes, it's quiet, no scooters or cars roaming around all night (except the odd airplane taking off), but also a long way from everything. You must use the bus (you get a nice schedule, though) or take a cab to get anywhere outside the hotel area. The closest minimarket is 10 minutes walk away along the road.

Another, rather nice restaurant can be found within 300 meters in nearby small village, should you get bored of the hotel offerings :)

Positives: excellent quality all round - spacious room, good layout of small complex, great food (breakfast is immense with the fresh crepes), brilliant pool, trendy spa area, "exclusive feel", good customer service, silent location, one of the nicest places we've ever stayed. Negatives: despite booking this place in the knowledge that we'd need to travel 15mins (or walk 40 mins) to kamari & the nearest restaurants, it's still a bit of a pain and so I'd mark the location down as its not within walking distance of anything. That said, if you want a quiet, luxurious hol and are happy to jump in a taxi when you fancy eating out or want to go to kamari to catch a bus to thira etc then this place is perfect.
