Certificate of Excellence
Grand View is one of the few hotels overlooking the volcano from the caldera cliff with almost no tiresome steps nor downhill or uphill paths to reach the rooms as it is found at the level of a quiet car path. There is private parking right outside the hotel.The Hotel has a large pool with spectacular views of Santorini volcano and the Aegean Sea. We offer a special buffet breakfast every morning with local fresh ingredients and we also operate a pool bar with delicious cocktails during sunset hours!

The hotel lives up to its name, you get an amazing view of the Aegean and the caldera. Away from the hustle of Fira and Oia, you get your own private balcony with the most amazing views. Fira and Oia are a very short drive from Megalochori, where the hotel is, and you have a lot

All the good things you’ve read about this place are true: the position, the view, the poolside food, the people, the service. Also the location in Megalochori is perfect if you don’t want to stay in the hotspots around Fira. You really are a few minutes’ walk from the centre of

View is amazing from the private balcony of the jacuzzi suite. Would highly recommend.

Starting to be dated; 1 ac unit was not working, tvs are old.

Do not drink the tap water as we became ill on 2nd day from the water.

Service ok but does not feel like a high end boutique ho

Dear Roland2908, We really appreciate your credits to our team and we are very happy to know that you so much enjoyed your stay here! In Santorini we dont drink the water from the tap, this is why you had free bottle of water in the fridge. Hoping to host you again in the future, we send our most sincere regards!

Our flight only departs at 7pm in the evening. Would we be able to shower and change somewhere in the afternoon as check out is normally at 12,pm. Also; is there an additional charge for using the hotel facilities in the afternoon after we have checked out. We are arriving by ferry and leaving by airplane. Approximately how much would the shuttle cost for these journeys?
The hotel is very accommodative, they will arrange taxis to airport or ferry, holding your luggage until departure time. There really is no issue with using hotel facilities, pool, etc., after checkout. Nice People, Nice Hotel, Grand View.

Hello, very interested in your hotel to stay for my vacation. Could you please tell me how can i go to Thira or Oia by public transportation? Are there any buses to go there both from your hotel?
I stayed at this hotel in May 2018. We found it really easy to catch the public bus to Fira and Oia. €1.80 each way. There is a timetable at the bus stop and the stop is less than 5 minutes down the road - an easy walk. It’s a great place to stay!!

Hello! Where are the rooms located? Standard double with shared balcony-upper level? How many share a terrace? Quiet area? How many levels is the Grand View? Are the standards with private balcony on the pool level quiet area? Any thought or comments? Thank you!!!
Hi there! It's a small hotel so my room was located just above the Swimming pool. I think mine was the second highest level. Think there's 3 levels only.. but with a good view nevertheless. The balcony will overlook the Swimming pool area, so other hotel guests can still possibly see you. even though hotel was quite full during our stay, it was rather peaceful (small hotel) and quiet. Hope this helps.

"Choose the rooms which face the caldera, worth every penny."
"All the rooms on the cliff side with sea and sunset views are desirable. Others face toward the main road, or courtyards or have no view"
"If you want to splurge, as for the private residence - it's the ultimate!"
"View facing the ocean and pool will be fantastic."
"The Private Pool Villa is amazing and great for two couples to stay! Would highly recommend!"
