Let me start by saying I NEVER do hotel reviews because I am on the road 50 to 100 nights a year. So the fact that I am doing this means my experience was either extraordinarily bad, or good. In this case, it was amazing. From the moment we arrived to the time we left, the hotel manager, "Niko," personally... More

The best customer service. The best staff. The best view. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Nico was without a doubt amazing with setting things up, telling us about the island, and letting us in on the know for what to do and see. With Nico you can't go wrong.

We booked after reading all the great reviews and seeing its top ranking. Our experience surpassed even our high expectations. Yes the villa (with its own private pool and outdoor jacuzzi) was amazing, yes the direct view of the volcano was unbelievable, yes it was all very spacious and clean, and yes the breakfast (which we had on all three...

My wife and I visited the Celestia Grand in Sept. 2016 and were greeted by most welcoming host you could imagine, the amazing Niko. Niko gave us a 1/2 hour orientation which included the history of Santorini, things to see, restaurants to eat at, and an open invitation to contact him with whatever needs we had. He was always easy... More

“Niko said he was all booked and we had one of the more modest villas (he said if the hotel were not full, he would have tried to upgrade us). But as discussed in the review, the villa was fantastic. So ANY room in this place is great.”
