My husband and I stayed here during part of our vacation to Greece. The rooms were comfortable with antique furnishings. Each room also had a patio where each evening we had breathtaking sunset views. The hotel staff is attentive and the food we had for breakfast and dinner was delicious! We would most certainly come back for a return visit!

Beautiful hotel with sumptuous breakfast, good location near the shops and restaurants of Oia, comfortable sized pool, breath taking scenery, personal space with own balcony and most important of all, you have the luxury of admiring the trademark Santorini sunset at your best comfort, with hundreds of other people fighting for space above. My wife and I bought snacks from a convenience store and sat by the balcony watching how the sun gets swallowed by the sea. Absolutely amazing and wonderful experience.

What an amazing location! Stunning sunsets every night! The whole Esperas team of staff ensured we had a memorable holiday, nothing was too much trouble, right to the last minute of our stay when our 2 heavy suitcases were carried by one of the team on his shoulders to our taxi at 5.30am! The delicious home made Greek menu options, plus the relaxed poolside sunset viewing, meant we only had to walk a few steps from our room for the best Oia location for dinner! The perfect place on earth to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary!!

We stayed here as part of a kayaking tour. We stayed two nights and the location was terrific for a walk though the quaint shops or to walk to view the sunsets. Our room was actually used as a honeymoon suite. It had a jacuzzi and there were two bedrooms, two baths and a beautiful living area. The view of the ocean was breathtaking. Others in our group also raved about their rooms though the room configuration vary a great deal.

Thank you for your wonderful review and positive comments. It is indeed true that none of our rooms are alike since most of them were dug into the rockface decades ago and have been upgraded since for the 21st century.

You must stay at Esperas, put this on your bucket list. The most idyllic location on the island situated within nice walking distance to Oia shopping with views to die for.
This is best place to stay to watch the most romantic sunsets on your balcony with a glass of wine.
We can't thank George and the staff for a wonderful stay, they all treat you like family and cannot do enough for you.
It doesn't matter which room you stay in, they all have equally a sensational view.
Thank you so much.

HI all,
Without any hesitation...book! Esperas is not only that perfect place that you see in magazines, it is the people, that community that you are looking for if something happen to you. Beside loving our room with view on the ocean, the private terrace, the lovely breakfast included, the location and the restaurant, the people, the people..
My husband and I rented a scooter to go around the island. We got into an accident and were airlifted to Crete's hospital. Georges, our host and all the staff were soooo great! Georges came to the hospital, they even offered to reimbursed us the 3 nights that we were not using. They also reimburse the night that our dear friends did not stay because they came with us to Crete. If you are not just looking for an hotel to stay but for a home, Esperas is your place, discrete but always there to help out...amazing you guys..thank you so much! I still get emails from them to see how my husband is...love you all..
