We stayed at the Blue Dolphins for our honeymoon, it was just breathtaking. Everything was perfect. Dennis, the hotel manager upgraded our room to a newly renovated room which was at the very top of the hotel with the most amazing view of the caldera and the sea. We drank our bottle of wine on the balcony while we enjoyed... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Blue Dolphins. The rooms are clean and spacious and the view is spectacular. Great location. Close enough to the restaurants and far enough away for quiet when needed. There are many steps so be prepared. I think this is pretty common for the location on the Caldera. Olga was very helpful with a list... More

I loved this hotel and its location, it does have a breathtaking view of the caldera and the personnel is very nice. But not all the room are the same, we had a room right where the breakfast was served and the "noise" start at 8.00 if not before.We usually wake up early so was not a great deal, but... More

When you walk from Fira, towards Oia, you'll reach a point where the view can't be surpassed. It's where most people stop to take a picture of Fira. Situated at this point is the Blue Dolphins. The view is breath taking. Pictures won't do it justice. The staff are very friendly and thorough. Our pick up and drop off to... More

We lived in their Hideaway cave house. Though the house is away from the hotel/apartments but they have a drop & pick up service for breakfast. A perfect living in a local house experience. Olga was very helpful, in dropping us to our accommodation and took great deal of time to patiently explain about the attractions, arranging rent a car... More

Dennis and his staff were excellent. To summarize: Airport pick-up was seamless. Staff were attentive, friendly, and always available for additional questions. For example, carried our bags, warmly welcomed us, mapped out the island and provided complementary wine and refreshments! Room was modern, spacious, clean and maintained daily. Bathroom was large and spotless. The patio was perfect. Unobstructed views with... More

We booked this hotel as we were looking for something special around our wedding day in Firostefani and picked Blue Dolphins. We were very happy with the choice we had made. The staff is as helpful as they possible could be and very friendly. The view is incredible as can be seen on many pictures. The rooms are spacious and... More

Blue Dolphins was fantastic - the staff were really friendly and helpful, the room was lovely, bathroom was HUGE, great view from the balcony and delicious breakfast. It's not in the hubbub of fira but we quite liked the quiet and it's only a short walk. We'd definitely go back and recommend.

Everything about this hotel will exceed your expectations!!! First of all, the staff is incredibly friendly and provides more help than you would ever expect from a hotel staff in planning your visit on Santorini. Also, my wife and I are convinced that there is no better view from any hotel on the island. The free breakfast in the morning... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
