We have just returned this week from a wonderful 8 days at Grand View Hotel in Megalochiro Santorini the sister hotel of Blue Dolphins which we visited whilst there and again wonderful views,closer to Fira and smaller only 9 rooms.When we return next year will almost certainly have time there as well,after our experience of Grand View...cannot find this hotel on your listings?
Anyway this hotel is located in a much quieter part of the island a short walk to the local typical Greek village of Megalochori with a number of good Tavernas and quaint cobbled streets.The views/sunsets are stunning,the owner Alex and his staff Including Darak the chef who is a superb cook,so good that we eat in 7 out of the 8 nights!..basically will prepare what you want,particularly local fresh fish,pastas,steaks,chicken,pork etc,delicious Greek salads etc....always service with a smile!..,he runs the small pool bar also where there are a good variety of snacks available during the day.We also arranged some trips around the island utilising Christoss another lovely member of staff rather than Taxis etc,very reasonable,a wealth of local knowledge and good company.
We intend to return to these hotels next year and thanks to Alex and his staff for making us welcome and enjoying a relaxing time...roll on 2015!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Blue Dolphins is situated in the village of Firostefani, which is a 10 minute walk from the capital village of Fira (through a beautiful pedestrian path on the caldera). We have the privilege of being at a magical location in terms of view and peace of scenery, but also close to the restaurants, bars and nightlife of Fira, the capital of Santorini. Blue Dolphins is also connected to the picturesque village of Imerovigli which is also just a 10 minute walk through a pedestrian path on the caldera. ... more less
