After researching numerous hotels in Santorini prior to booking, I'm confident we picked the perfect one, in location, hospitality, and overall experience. We booked a superior studio which was a comfortable room with a balcony offering incredible views. We were able to watch the sunsets without the crowds congregating at the castle and loved having breakfasts while watching the boats arrive at the bay in the morning. We ended up having dinner there twice, at the open air restaurant only 1 flight up (in this respect, we were luckier than many) and on our balcony. Andreas, who waited on us several times, was just wonderful and provided exemplary service, making sure we got our correct orders and ample coffee in the morning. I got to use the pool every day which was just idyllic and was given the opportunity to take full advantage of it after check-out as my pickup to the ferry was not until 2:30PM. Nicole at the reception desk was also terrific. I had a problem at the airport upon arrival and she ensured that the taxi driver would wait for us, when we finally arrived we were greeted warmly. If you are going to stay in Oia and want a relaxing experience away from the crowds on the main street, Esperas is the perfect place.

Thank you so very much for your wonderful review and your kind words of praise for our staff members. I was very happy to hear you enjoyed our restaurant as well. It would help us if you took some time to review Ombra restaurant as well! Thank you once again for your business and your recommendation.

We loved our stay at Esperas! Waking up to the view of santorini every morning was seriously a dream. The service was wonderful. I wish the food options for breakfast had a little more UMPH after seeing other hotels selections. The rooms were a good size, but the balcony + view is what you're really paying for. Personally, I loved our stay here (15 minute stair walk and all), but my husband wished it was a little more "glam."

Esperas Santorini was the perfect place to stay. You have a front row balcony seat to the most stunning sunsets in the world. Everyone on the island floods the streets around the hotel, while you get to sit and enjoy comfortably on your personal balcony with a glass of wine. The staff were incredibly kind, accommodating, and helpful whatever your needs may be. The rooms are stunning and very well kept. I would stay here time and time again.

This was my fourth trip to Santorini, second stay in Oia. We loved Esperas. Our previous hotel in Oia cost twice as much, yet we liked Esperas more. My wife’s 74 year old mother had difficulty with the steps (our two rooms were the farthest down the cliff). After the first night we asked if my mother-in-law could be moved to a room higher up the cliff. The hotel staff couldn’t have been more helpful and understanding and moved her to a beautiful room that involved far fewer steps. The breakfasts were wonderful. Each night we would hand in a breakfast menu with our choices and requested time and the staff would bring it down to our room where we would eat on our beautiful balcony. We had dinner at the hotel on our last night and were all very happy with our food. My wife and I had a couple massage with a beautiful view of the sea that was absolute perfection. The rooms were spotless and well appointed. We’ll no doubt return to Santorini and look forward to returning to Esperas!

The views of the caldera are fantastic from anywhere on the Esperas property and it’s the best place to view the sunset. The entire staff made us feel welcome and took care of everything we needed. All the Oia shops and restaurants are a short walk away, plus there is a wonderful restaurant on site if you want to stay in. We definitely recommend Esperas!
