Blue Dolphins is situated in the village of Firostefani, which is a 10 minute walk from the capital village of Fira (through a beautiful pedestrian path on the caldera). We have the privilege of being at a magical location in terms of view and peace of scenery, but also close to the restaurants, bars and nightlife of Fira, the capital of Santorini. Blue Dolphins is also connected to the picturesque village of Imerovigli which is also just a 10 minute walk through a pedestrian path on the caldera.

Oh Boy! Words are not enough to describe the beauty of this little place hidden on the amazing slopes of Santorini. Beautifully decorated rooms, breahtaking view, amazing location close to everything and, above all, the most helpful and welcoming reception staff we've met during our travelling who went beyond their way to make us feel like home. Thanks to them, our trip is marked in our memories forever and we are already planning going back in a few months.

I booked this hotel based on the reviews from Tripadvisor, so it's only fair that I do my bit and help out other future visitors. We just returned from our stay in June. We booked the Honeymoon jacuzzi suite for 3 nights. And it was by far one of the best rooms we've ever had, getting a room with a view like this will be tough anywhere else on our future vacations. The room sleeps 3, we were 2 adults and 1 child (11 yrs). The outdoor porch (just outside the room) is your own private personal porch, with the best views ever. The bathroom was gorgeous too. From the hotel, when you walk towards Thira, within a 5 - 10 min walking distance there are plenty of food options and marts. The town of Thira maybe a 15 - 20 min walk. We just rented a car to get around the island. I was lucky enough to find parking in Oia and Thira, but I'm guessing that would get more difficult during peak times. There is also a grocery store nearby that delivers to your hotel room. But it's a 15 min uphill walk (towards Oia). Keep in mind there will be plenty of steps and uphill/downhill cobblestoned walks in all directions. Santorini was hot. I had made reservations at Character restaurant, Dennis called them and made sure we had a good table. The table was sea-facing and the sunset from there was an amazing experience. Dennis, Harris and Toca all provided excellent service, they're there to help you. This room and Santorini in general, was an experience we'll never forget. We'd love to re-visit

We stayed in the Cave Room. We had 5 people. There is one double bed in a secluded area with its private full bathroom. Then in the main area where there is a table/chairs, there were 2 twin sized beds and a cot for the 5th person. That area also has its own full bath. There was plenty of room of the 5 of us and the wifi worked fine (had some concerns since it is a cave!). The room was extremely clean! The cave room had 2 private outside sitting areas - one on the same level as the room entrance and a 2nd upper private balcony with 2 chaise loungers and a table. We could pick out our breakfast items the day before and the next morning our breakfast would be waiting for us on trays on our balcony. There were many selections and was a great Greek breakfast. What was the BEST was the view from the hotel. The sitting area (table / chairs / sun cover) for all guests was immediately adjacent to the cave room's upper balcony (this might be a problem for some people, but we didn't care) - but the view was MAGNIFICENT. Really one of the best views around. Just be forewarned that there are maybe 50 steps down to the hotel (which is not unusual) from the parking lot. We used Blue Dolphins transportation for the 5 of us in one vehicle; the only issue was the driver on the return trip to the airport was excessively fast (dangerously so) and it was a jerky ride while we had plenty of time to get to the airport. Blue Dolphins was a great location; very close walk to Fira (15-20 min) and 2.5 hour walk to Oia via the pathway. It is maybe a 15 minute walk to the area of Skaros Rock for fabulous sunset views. Or, you could just watch the sunset from the hotel! Very happy we stayed in Firostefani which was way less congested and much less touristy than Oia.

Our family can’t stop raving about our stay at Blue Dolphins. We stayed in the hideaway cave house and the canava cave house. Not only were the rooms big and spacious but definitely could fit more than the two people we had in each. The hideaway cave house is about a 10 min walk from the resort but they offered free shuttling back and forth for breakfast. The staff WAS AMAZING. They took care of getting us last minute ATV’s before our dinner, shuttling us to and from port even when our ferry was delayed till midnight, carrying our heavy luggage up and down the stairs. They were unbelievably accommodating! The breakfast was top notch we’re all still talking about the fresh orange juice and the incredible views. We always came back from our excursions with clean rooms. It is so close to shopping and great restaurants but far enough away from the cruise crowds. We can not recommend this place enough!
