It is hard to find more superlatives provided by other guests. I would emphasize that unlike other luxury boutique hotels the staff were genuine, warm and eager to break rules to meet my particular needs. It is a unique experience in that most of one’s time is spent outside at private lounge chairs and individual tables. The cave rooms have no windows, but they aren’t needed because one only goes to one’s room to sleep. And the sunset views over the caldera are extraordinary!

Hotel's Favorite
This hotel is something else, perched on the edge of the Caldera. We were upgraded to one of their suites with the most fabulous view over the Caldera. The suite was spotlessly clean and the hotel's Covid hygiene procedures were second to none. We felt 100% safe in the hotel, everywhere in fact, but particularly in our wonderfully comfortable and superbly furnished rooms. In these troubled and worrying times it's what we were looking for: a place to relax, chill out and not worry about Covid. Totally achieved. The breakfast which can be ordered at any time during the day and which was served on our own personal terrace was absolutely fabulous, with a variety of fruits, yoghurt, eggs, cheese, ham, pancakes, waffles, bread rolls and much more. All staff were always friendly, polite, helpful and efficient. I can highly recommend this hotel, particularly if you're worried about infection. I've never seen such careful attention to detail when it comes to deep-cleaning, or cleaning on a daily basis.One of the best palaces we ever stayed in!!

Greetings from Iconic Santorini! Sincere thanks for reviewing our tranquil retreat following your visit to this magical island. We are thrilled that you enjoyed the property's idyllic setting on the rim of the caldera in picturesque Imerovigli village. Our utmost goal is to provide magical moments to cherish and in these uncertain times, we remain fully committed to providing a safe setting. As such, your kind compliments regarding the service, cleanliness and hygiene protocols are highly rewarding. Chef Mattheos is happy that you found the daily breakfast offerings to your liking. Several of our visiting friends decide to remain at the hotel throughout their stays and in addition to the tranquillity, another main reason is the ability to savour breakfast at any time of the day desired. This special amenity continues to be a true luxury for romantics, honeymooners and those seeking an escape from the routine of daily life. Please consider yourselves part of the Iconic family, it would be a great pleasure extending a warm welcome back to your Greek home away from home in the not-too-distant future! Well wishes from the Cyclades and kindest regards from us all, Marcela Alfaya

We had a fabulous time here - it’s such a magical place. The bed was enormous and we loved having our breakfast served everyday on the terrace - including freshly made juices and coffee. The staff were so friendly and helpful - we absolutely loved this place. Like all hotels in this area, there are steps involved so bring some trainers! The village has a number of good restaurants and Fira is just a 30 min walk along the cost. Beautiful!

We chose to celebrate our honeymoon at the magical Iconic Santorini hotel. The caldera views and the staff really make this place. If I was giving feedback on the staff alone (especially Vaios, Elizabeta, Anastasia and Vilson), I would give them 6 if I could! They are extremely attentive, friendly and nothing is any trouble. The hotel is stunning and lives up to the photographs. It is extremely clean and the breakfast is out of this world! Due to our budget, we stayed in a deluxe room (we hoped we might be upgraded like hotels often do for a special occasion as it was pretty empty, but we found out everyone was celebrating something. It’s definitely an island of proposals, weddings, anniversaries and honeymoons!). The room was gorgeous and huge — and the bed was bigger than our first flat in London! We had ordered a bottle of champagne (paid for) to our room which was waiting upon arrival — a lovely touch! The only downside of the room was that our table outside hugged the building as opposed to the cliff edge like most of the other rooms. We felt a bit tucked out of the way and didn’t get morning sun for breakfast until 11:30 onwards. We therefore made the mistake one morning of moving to an adjacent table in the sunshine (all rooms next to us were unoccupied for the majority of our stay so we didn’t think this would be an issue). Alas, the manager told us off and said we couldn’t move around due to Covid. We appreciated this but it was a bit confusing as there are many communal sun loungers and tables by the pool that everyone uses. It would’ve been nice to suggest an alternative for us, but we did that ourselves and went back to the manager and asked for a solution and she kindly gave us a semi-private table next to the restaurant for one morning in the sunshine. This was much appreciated. My advice is to choose your room carefully and maybe check that the outside space is what you want. My only other qualm was checkout. Majority of guests we met were given late check out until 5/6pm. As our room was in demand, we were told we had to check out by 1pm but could use the spa facilities. This was a nice gesture so we packed accordingly and went walking to Fira once we checked out with the hope of showering when we got back. When we returned, we were told other guests were having massages in the spa and we had to wait. Again, this wasn’t an issue at first (but it could’ve been avoided by realising there would be a clash and perhaps offered us another room — Covid can’t be an excuse for everything as the spa would need to be cleaned anyway), but we waited 45 minutes. With 10-15 minutes before our taxi departure, we were allowed to use the spa. We would’ve planned our day differently had we known this wouldn’t be an option. Finally, upon departure we were told we’d receive a lovely gift! We were very excited! But we left empty handed as someone had obviously forgotten to give it to us :(. I would love to give this place 5 stars but these things added up and tainted our stay. I think it’s important to make every guest feel valued and equal.
