We stayed here the majority of the time while on Santorini, and it was amazing. First of all, the location allows you some of the most gorgeous sunset views over the caldera and the Aegean Sea, just right outside your room. Very nice modern amenities in the rooms and the little touches (chocolate for turn-down service). Daily breakfast came with our rate, and it was yummy! Not the regular pastry continental type, but a variety of hot breakfast dishes cooked to order. To top that off, they'll bring it to your private patio/balcony every morning for you to enjoy the breath-taking views with. The resort is built into the cliffs on the caldera (even the cute elevators were built into the mountain, very nice) so it offers a perfect location for you to enjoy the view. It is located just outside of Fira and has complimentary shuttles to and from Fira 6 times a day (takes 5 minutes). As lovely as the resort and location and views were, the best part about Petit Palace was by far, the STAFF. I can't say enough about these amazingly gracious, welcoming, hospitable, and just friendly people here. At the reception desk, you may be greeted by Mike, Kyriakos, or Maria, all of whom are top notch! Mike and Kyriakos are so accommodating and helpful, telling you about the island, walking you to your room and showing you the property; Maria is sooo personable and helps you with just about anything. She even remembered why we were there and said "happy birthday" to me on my birthday. :) In the restaurant are Dina and Costa, who are very friendly. They're also the ones bringing you your drinks at the pool or lounge, or champagne bottles to your balcony for the sunset, or room service. They're awesome! Everyone was so nice and polite to us, that a little niceness and gratitude back will go a long way. After all, they really deserve it. To all the staff, thank you for making our first trip to Santorini such a memorable one! I will definitely come back here again and recommend this place to all my friends.
