“Absolutely Amazing Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2010

This hotel exceeded all our expectations. If you are planning to stay in Santorini / Fira look no further than this beautiful hotel. The hotel is set in a perfect location away from the noisy crowds and traffic yet still within a few minutes walk of the centre. The pool was excellent with plenty of sun loungers and shaded areas. There is a good choice of breakfast. The hotel is immaculately clean and the rooms are well equipped including air conditioning which is essential in July / August time. I thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone who is planning to visit Santorini and thank Georgia and her lovely family for making our stay a pleasant and memorable one.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and had a fantastic time. It is a great compromise when you have limited finances as staying on the Caldera in Fira is expensive. The hotel standard was excellent with a good bathroom, shower and rooms. All very clean. The pool area is spacious and relaxing, and the hotel area is quiet for a good nights sleep. The walk to Fira is about 5 min down the main road. Service at the hotel was excellent and very friendly with great advice about what to do/where to go.
Our only complaint would be that the breakfast wasn't up to the quality of the hotel.
I would definitely recommend staying here.

Dream Island Resort certainly lived up to its name...I can not more highly recommend this gem of a boutique hotel. I had angst about booking on the 'sunrise side versus 'sunset/caldera'...I definitely made the right choice....Hotel location was perfect, set away from the maddening noisy tourist crowd, a very easy 5min walk into the centre of Fira.
It offered a large beautiful swimming pool, hammocks, sunlounges..the rooms (mine being #12) were large, tastefully decorated, with desk, chairs & fridge..bathroom good size, hair dryer, shampoo etc & nice quality towels.
A small patio with outdoor table & chairs & a clothes drying rack with pegs :)
Free wireless internet
Excellent breakfast with plenty of choice
Free transfer either to & from Ferry or Airport... (that was a bonus)
Georgia along with her husband & children owned & ran the hotel were super hosts could not do more to help..you almost felt part of the family

It was more fun going to 'Franco's' Bar to have a cocktail listen to wonderful classical music and watch the amazing view of the sun setting.
Eat at Mamma's near the bus station.....
Argo's.. around the corner from Franco's
Go to Oia late one afternoon to watch the sunset... walk down the 250 steps to 'Katina's Taverna right on the waters edge - fantastic - and get a taxi back up the hill.
But...Dream Island Resort is definitely a must stay !!

My expectations for this hotel were exceeded when were given an upgrade to a suite. At this point, we had been traveling for 1 1/2 weeks with a very tall 14 year old staying in standard sized rooms throughout Greece and this was a very welcomed gift.
The suite was huge. The hotel was glorious. The pool and loungers excellent. Breakfast buffet delicious. It had a wonderful view of the Aegean Sea. We didn't mind that we didn't have the view of the caldera as we were thankful for the peaceful setting. We felt like we were the only guests.
As this was the mid-point of our 3 week trip, we used their laundry service. It was excellent and inexpensive.
My son had company with their children and some other hotel guests' children. It was a great break for him to play cards with other teens rather than always hanging out with his parents.
Santorini is a beautiful island. We used the local bus to visit Oia and Perissa.
I also recommend the Sunset Sail on brigantine ‘Thalassa’. It was a lovely afternoon and evening complete with live music.
I would have liked another day on the island to visit a winery but I guess I'll have to return and when I do, I'll stay again at the Dream Island Hotel.

We have been to Santorini 7 times over the past 17 years and have always had a wonderful holiday. But this time it was INCREDIBLE!! All because of Dream Island Hotel. The "Boutique Style" hotel was sooo clean, the breakfast was always very fresh with a large variety of foods to choose from, the beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms were so modern and equipped. The pool area will take your breath away. The "young family" that runs this hotel are so helpful and are there for YOU and all your questions about the island. And the LOCATION is ideal!!! Within 5 minutes walk you are at Main Square passing restaurants, shopping and creperies along the way. We have only WONDERFUL things to say about this hotel. Dream Island Hotel is a 10+

We spent 5 nights for our honeymoon in Dream Island Hotel. Everything was great. Very lovely and clean rooms. Quiet and relaxing atmosphere. The swimming pool was clean and big. Breakfast was very good. The hotel is very close to the center of Fira. And also the owners were very friendly. Special thanks to Konstantinou for her hospitality. I extremely recommend Dream Island Hotel for everyone.
