“Oh my God the View!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Wonderful apartments set on the Caldera overlooking the most magnificent of views. Good value for the location. The apartments are beautifully decorated with local artistry and assist in the enjoyment and tranquility of what Santorini has to offer. Chrysoula, the manager was an absolute gem making this one of the best stays we have had anywhere. Nothing was too much trouble! We will definitely be coming back. Thank you and see you soon....Georgia and Stefan, Melbourne...

Room Tip: Choose Apartment 8. Its right at the bottom....uninterrupted views and has a private jacuzzi....

We stayed in Studio 5 for 2 nights. Quirky cave room with a hole in the floor which leads down steep stairs to a bathroom. The room is rustic and included everything we needed including a complimentary bottle of Santorini wine. There is more privacy as the room numbers get higher. Room 2 was our original room and there is a path in front when guests walk up to reception. The views are breathtaking. Breakfast is high quality and you can see the donkeys walking by on their way down to the port to pick up cruise ship passengers. The hotel is located on the Gold Street in Thira which is walking distance to shops and restaurants. Thira is central to the island and perfect for exploring on an ATV (25 Euros a day). I would recommend the 300cc ATVs as the 200cc are barely able to get up the hills. The hotel is very accommodating, giving us a late check out which made day 2 much easier on us not having to check out at noon. Perissa is the best beach on the island and has black sand. The other beaches are very rocky. By some food and drink from the Perissa cafes and they will let you use their beach chairs and changing rooms. Enigma Cafe is also a perfect spot to watch the sunset. We would recommend this hotel for service, location and views.

I recently stayed here for 10 days with my new husband for our honeymoon. We both had high expectations of Enigma and were certainly not let down. Our stay was made both comfortable and easy by the hotel staff, providing useful local information, booking taxis and making restaurant bookings on request.
Stairs can be a little tiresome as there are alot of them, but this is true of anywhere in santorini and adds to the charm of the place.
Enigma used every available avenue to ensure our stay was both memorable and comfortable. They even used a passing comment we made about our jacuzzi suite being a little open to the pathway and moved us the next day into a more private suite. We were given fresh flowers in our room, bottled water, champagne & strawberries on arrival, 2 bottles of santorini wine, free 3 course meal at the beautiful Astra hotel and a special goodbye dessert and wine on our last night. Jacuzzi suite is definitely worth the price, nothing like watching the sunset whilst relaxing in the bubbles and drinking a complimentary bottle of champagne we were given on arrival. We sincerely hope to come back, and will
miss all that santorini and enigma have to offer. Highly recommended.

Incredible view and wonderful people (Chris and Lisa). Worth every penny if you want to splurge a little and you are staying in Fira. Breakfast was great too! You won't be disappointed if you stay here. Thanks again Chris and Lisa, you were so helpful! Had an awesome stay in Sept. 2011 (tripadvisor only let's me select back to Nov. 2011).

Me and my husband stay at Enigma in mid-September for our honeymoon in Santorini. Our entire experience was wonderful! A warm welcome from Lisa when we first stepped in the receiption, then helpful advices on transportation, activities, restaurants from both Lisa and Christine, made our stay so enjoyable! Every morning, our delightful breakfast was deliverded to our balcony by Eddi who is very polite and we always enjoyed the Aegean view while having breakfast. Every night, we enjoyed our private jaccuzi, especially our last night, Enigma complimentary served us desserts, fresh fruits, and drink. Enigma is perfectly located in the center of Fira Town, closed to all shops, mini-market, cafes, restaurants; 10mins walk to cable car and 5mins walk to the bus station. The entire staff team has cooperated well to keep the business running as the top rated hotel in Fira.

The only minor concern I had during my stay was that the mattress in room 3 needs to be replaced as it sink in the middle.

Room Tip: Choose a private jaccuzi room, it might be expensive but worth it!

All our dreams were realised when we arrived at Enigma!! A beautiful warm welcome from Leisa, Chrysoula and their team! All those pictures of Santorini and the caldera came true before our eyes as we made our way to our fabulous apartment.

A beautiful breakfast feast and that gorgeous greek yoghurt was a daily treat!

Everyday we 'basked' in that glorious Santorini Sunset from our balcony!!

Our stay at Enigma was the highlight of our European holiday!

We hope to hurry back and make more beautiful family memories!!

Efharisto Polli !!!

We loved our little apartment on top of the world overlooking the sea! The staff were very helpful in moving us to a new room without all the steps! The hotel was clean, quiet, and an oasis! The pool, located at another hotel was a short walk and absolutely perfect. The breakfasts were delicious and served in your room, we felt like royalty! All the shopping and sites were a 5 minute walk as well as all the restaurants. The hotel is also near the bus station where you can catch a bus to Oia and other parts of Santorini. Absolute perfection!
