“Absolutely fantastic hotel”
Reviewed June 12, 2010

Beautiful hotel, plenty of room to relax around the pools - not squashed in like sardines like in some hotels. Immaculately clean, friendly staff who went the extra mile with any request made. Just a short walk into Fira itself but along a very busy road so constantly having to watch the children as the cars just fly up and down the road so fast. Fantastic holiday in a lovely hotel in a great location. Would definitely go back to this hotel if we decide to return to Santorini.

Once at the resort, you see nothing but blue sky - it's like being in a Shangri-La. Of course, the road is outside and the town is a 6 min. walk away. The rooms are ok, but it is all those pools (3 large, 3 jacuzzi, 1 kid pool) that look like something out of a magazine. The hotel does have a computer with internet service if you buy a 90min. card for 5 euros. Dinner buffet the first night will introduce you to Santorini-style Greek foods (but head to the gorgeous restaurants in Fira after that).

What a great place to spend some time relaxing! Very friendly staff in all areas. Wonderful pools. At first I was worried that it might be too far outside of town but it turned out to be perfect - nice and quiet, and the short walk was good after too much to eat and drink!
The only thing was we had a bottom floor room and we could hear the people above us walking around. Apart from that everyone was very helpful and it was a beautiful, relaxing setting, great breakfast too!

El Greco Hotel in Santorini is not only a very good hotel in terms of accomodations and location, but a cozy place where to stay. You will end up friends to the members of the staff, from the room cleaner to the reception crew, not mentioning the bar and restaurant staff. AWESOME !!!! we are defenitely coming back

Stayed at El Greco for 3 nights in May 2010. Wonderful apartment-type suite; great views; good food. Only negative, staff quite unfriendly, especially the wait staff. Front desk (depending on hour of day) were also unfriendly. Other than that, would recommend it.

Lovely location.

Well maintained, room was on 2 levels, well furnished and decorated.

Easy reach of town and on site restaurant was excellent value - we went b&b.

Hotel was never too busy so always plenty of room at the 2 pools. Pool bar staff friendly and professional...they made some great cocktails.

One of the best places I've ever visited. Will go back again.
