“Perfect, magical hotel in Fira!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012 via mobile

We stayed only one night in Fira but booked Dream Island on recommendation from a friend of a friend. I wish we has stayed longer before transferring to Crete! The family that runs the hotel were so comforting and warm and truly made us feel like they could help with anything we needed. They picked us up from the city square when we arrived and drove us down to the port to meet our ferry when we fleet (no charge!). Very accommodating and friendly. I fell in love with Athena, the sweet white dog who stays at the hotel with them during the day, the big beautiful pool, the hammock, the the reds and cobblestones, and the great location. We were pleased with our clean room, great movies in English on satellite, fruit and water in the room, and modern bathrooms. The bed was a little smaller than some of our other hotels, but was hardly an issue. I see people complain about the breakfast but honestly you have to be crazy not to want to eat their huge breakfast buffet. Ours included Greek yogurt and honey, fresh fruit and syrups, some of the best pastries and croissants I've ever had, ham and cheese omlettes, bacon, sausage, fried and boiled eggs, cereals with milk, fresh orange juice, coffee, etc. Our stay was so special and awesome and I would stay at this hotel again for days and days! If you're going to Fira, BOOK HERE! You won't regret it.

stayed at this hotel in 2011 august for a week. picked it as it was close to area we wanted to stay in, and at top of town hill. were there for son's wedding-his house was close by.
Dream Island is just that, what a place. It wasn't there in 2004, and we found it on hotel search for this particular area in 2011-- no steps and good parking fit our liking. As other post, owner picked us up early in a.m, room was spotless, and the whole place is magical. Others in party liked it as well and moved from caldera hotel to stay-lucky to get room. all items were at hand, and family running the hotel was so helpful. pool, cabanas etc. like a dream.

Room Tip: note- can't speak to fitness centre- we did not use. the hills in santorini are our fitness cent...

I was delighted by my stay. The family was helpful and accommodating in every way possible, including letting me book in five hours early (coming straight from 23 hours of flying!), holding my bag for ten days while I was away on a sailing trip, fruit and water in the room, carrying bags at every possible opportunity, I could not have asked for more. They are kind and attentive people and made my stay delightful. And the breakfast! Oh, the breakfast! It was AMAZING. I will certainly be back.

I just spent 3 nights at Dream Island Hotel with my friend as we travelled the Greek islands this August. We couldn't have had a nicer experience here! The family who run the hotel were so helpful and friendly, they made us feel very welcome from beginning to end. They picked us up from the airport on the first day, and took us to the port on our last day - free of charge! The room was a little small for two people with two suitcases, but nevertheless was tastefully decorated and pleasant to stay in. The shower is also a bit of a squeeze, but no reason not to stay here. The pool area was lovely, and we found it very relaxing here. There is a lovely hammock overlooking the pool too. The family were always on hand if you needed anything (I broke a glass in the room and they came an cleaned it up straight away) and to offer helpful advice about the area. They made you feel as if you had been welcomed into their home. The hotel is also in a great location about 5 mins from the centre of Fira and close to the bus station where you can get a bus to any of the beaches around the island easily. I would agree with some comments on here that the breakfast was average - if you like a mean cooked breakfast you may wish to go somewhere else. But we didnt mind this breakfast ourselves, there was bread, eggs, cereal and bacon - it was fine. I would 100 % recommend anyone to stay here and will definitely come back.

Thank you to the wonderful family that own and run this resort. We recently enjoyed a few nights with friends at Dream Island Resort and were treated so well from the minute we were picked up from the air port. The place was inviting, clean, modern, had stunning views of the sea and perfect facilities. One of the best places we've stayed at for overall value. Their professionalism was outstanding. Couldn't recommend it enough. Very satisfied.

I really enjoyed my stay at Dream Island. It is a beautiful little hotel with a great pool area and views of the Kamari Beach side of the island. It is in a very good location 5 minutes from the heart of Fira.

The best part is the wonderful family that operates the place and attends to guest needs.

We loved our recent stay at the Dream Island Hotel! The owners, Georgia and Rousseto, warmly welcomed us to the hotel and made us feel at home right away. Rousseto picked us up at the ferry and quickly took us out of the crowd and drove us to the hotel. Their daughter Konstadina was also very helpful and warm as she checked us in. I had booked the hotel on the way to Santorini from the ferry boat and Konstadina quickly responded to our emails and set-up our pick-up from the ferry. Georgia was always ready to chat and answer any of our questions. The whole family takes good care of their guests!

Our room was clean, spacious and delightful, a second floor room overlooking the pool area. We booked the room for two nights, but ended up staying 4 nights. Since my husband and I were celebrating our first year wedding anniversary, the owners surprised us with a beautiful room upgrade and a delicious homemade cake. Breakfast was served daily in the cave area. There was a good variety of warm and cold breakfast foods, all very tasty. Their cook was also very friendly and warm. Really, everyone who worked at the hotel greeted us warmly.

The owners keep the hotel very, very clean. The hotel is a short walk to the main platia and the streets that lead into the main part of Fira. Since the hotel is not located within the main touristy part of town, it is quiet at night. However, it is still easy to walk to all the main attractions of Fira. The bus station for the beaches and other towns is a quick ten minute walk from hotel, past the platia and to your left.

Really, this is a wonderful hotel and the owners make it worth your stay.
We can't wait to visit again!
