“Beyond our dreams”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2011

We just arrived with the pick up service atrina setup for us. Everyone is very friendly and our room is beautiful. The view from our place is like a dream... the hotel even left us a bottle of wine for our anniversary. The cell phones they give u is also a nice touch. I really loved that there is free wifi. I just feel very relaxed and my wife was in tears on how beautiful everything turned out. This place is in the perfect location too. I am just so glad/happy that we chose this hotel and i would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for that perfect getaway.

This review is written from the perspective of the parents of a 3 year old child: Santorini feels like the last bastion of a kind of apartheid - clearly not through racial discrimination, but through discrimination against children. Atrina was one of the very few hotels here that would even consider taking children; In most other places there's a blanket ban for anyone under 12 or 13. Their excuse is that the 'Caldera' is dangerous: rubbish! The only danger would be parents who don't watch over their kids, but such people would be a danger anywhere in the world. The 'apartheid' stretches beyond hotels and into restaurants: we didn't find a single restaurant with a kids' menu, and in one place we were actually charged double for our daughter! This said, our daughter enjoyed her stay at the Atrina enormously: she even learned to swim there - the pool is absolutely perfect: don't be conned by the universal shots of the inifinity pool of another hotel up the road. What you don't see with that pool is that it's actually quite small, and the hotel itself is a very very long walk from anything interesting.
Back to the Atrina: What were the best things? The Pool, Breakfast, the fact that they welcome kids, and the VIEW! In our opinion the Atrina's location is perfect as well: it's just close enough to what's happening in Santorini, but far enough away from the melee to allow a good night's sleep.
The worst things? It's looking a bit tired. The bathrooms (at least ours) are sub-standard, and the beds are too small. But it's a measure of how good the view is that these aspects of the hotel are not the things that are at the top of your mind when you leave. Also, if - like us - you have young children, beware of the organised boat trip to the volcano, hot springs etc - it is totally unsuitable for young children (but the Atrina - who act as an agent in this - don't tell you about this before you go).

I can only echo the many positive comments in other reviews about this hotel. It is in a stunning location and as soon as you arrive you feel instantly relaxed and away from the hussle and bustle of Santorini.
My family of 4 stayed in the "Cavana 1894 house" and there was more than enough space for us. Breakfasts on our terrace were delicious, the pool area is stunning and the staff /owners were very friendly and helpful. They also made great restaurant recommendations!
Would highly recommend!

Just returned from Santorini and my friend and i had the pleasure to stay at Atrina House. We rented the xenonas house and it was amazing. The room, bathroom, kitchen...all of it was beyond spacious, clean and beautiful. The private balcony, private jacuzzi and private entrance were icing on top.

The staff were soo friendly and helpful..arranging ATVs to be dropped off and picked up, delivering a delicious breakfast every morning and preparing a real yummy club sandwich. the pool is beautiful...everything about this place is just great.

First, Oia is the best place to stay in Santorini. Out of the chaos of Fira. You get tons of day-trip cruise passengers in Oia but that's ok.

The location of Atrina in Oia is great -- in the middle of Oia and convenient for walking driving etc. Non-stop views of caldera from your room/balcony. Sunset is overrated in my opinion -- you won't miss that here. Would rather stare out at caldera all day. We stayed in the Marina room and loved it. I'll agree with all of the other positive reviews. We were very happy with our decision. We spent a ridiculous amount of time looking online at places in Oia to stay at that weren't ungodly expensive but still had the amenities quality we needed (it was $500+ USD/night at peak of season).

The hospitality was great. We had some travel issues with the ferry and the striking workers and the owners gave us a head's up on this (we were clueless) and went through the trouble of changing our tickets (they even drove all the way to Fira to do so). They gave us great recommendations for things to do on the island -- beaches, wineries, restaurants. Rented a car for us. Probably some other things I've forgotten already.

Stay here and enjoy Santorini.

We had three days at Atrina and loved it. Athina, one of the owners, was the perfect hostess -so helpful and friendly without being obtrusive. We had a most relaxing stay.
We loved our apartment and the pool was divine. We were brought bottles of cold water at the poolside and were happy spending hours there looking at the view. Breakfasts were yummy and we are now hooked (again) on Greek yoghurt!! The pastries and fresh fruit were excellent - all brought down by Costas at a time of our choice to the balcony.
Our flight from the UK was delayed by the Greek national strike - Melanie and Athina not only informed us of the strike before our airline but organised a taxi transfer when we arrived at midnight and it was one of smoothest transfers we have ever had! We arrived to find a complimentary bottle of Santorini wine.
Senior suite was very spacious for our family of 4 adults; it had a great balcony with sunloungers, table and chairs and a fabulous view. The bathroom could be improved but it didn't affect our overall view of Atrina as wonderful..... We would love to go back.
Oia is a lovely town and highly recommended. We swam at Amoudi bay )rocky but fun) after walking down the steps. Later in the week we went on a sunset boat trip (Thalassa) which also visited the volcano, recommended both by Athina and the hostess at our next apartment.
Thank you Athina and her Mum, sisters and staff. We would love to return someday....

Room Tip: look at the photos on the hotel website and Tripadvisor and ask Atrina's owners for advice

My girlfriend and I stayed for 2 nights in June 2011 in the Canava room. We had a wonderful time! The accomodation is simply stunning (and we had the cheapest room available!). The view is incredible. You will not want to leave the pool area! Breakfast is served on your terrace so you can enjoy the view. The staff are so friendly and kind. I could not recommend this place enough - don't bother staying anywhere else in Oia. It is situated in a really nice spot, just outside the main town. Oia is small but it can get very crowded, so we enjoyed being a little removed from that. Although it only takes 5-10 mins to get to the centre of Oia. Overall a beautiful setting, highly recommended.
