“excellent choice for the price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2010

We visited Santorini for our honeymoon... The Blue Dolphins honeymoon suite proved to be an excellent choice. This room has a breathtaking view on the caldera on a quiet spot of the island, not far away from Fira. Alexis was helpful providing useful information (things we should do, were we should eat, etc.). The staff was very polite and descrete and everything was clean and tidy.
We highly recommend not only Blue Dolphins but Santorini island in general for honeymooners!

Santorini has been our romantic destination since we met with my wife. Out of the various appartments/boutique hotels that we stayed we have selected BLUE DOLPHINS to be our preffered one. The view is trully breathtaking, Alexis (the owner) hospitality creates a friendly atmosphere that makes you feel living at a friends house rather than a hotel. The prices are very competitive and the location is ideal - overlooking the Caldera, within walking distance to the good nightlife of Fira but still away from the ´ ´´ noise´´ and the ´´crowds´´. Alexis advise on where to go and what to see has been invaluable!!! He seems to know the whole island - A mayor to be sometime!!

BLUE DOLPHINS Traditional appartments is highly recommended!!

after searching the internet for hours, i ended up at the blue dolphins end of may. so often the caldera view comes with crazy rates...but not in this case. beautiful room, best view in santorini,great breakfast and and amazing suggestions of value for money shops and restaurants( yes the sunset lounge is world class!). there is also respect for privacy which often is impossible in big hotels. what a great place to stay ! 10 out of 10 guys!

I highly recommend this. The location is stunning. the views breathtaking, and the rooms are traditional Greek style but beautifully and tastefully renovated.

It's small and cozy, and the service is friendly and impeccable. It's as genuine as it gets, I cannot recommed it enough!

Arriving to this stunning romantic get away the “Blue Dolphins Traditional Apartments” we were warmly welcomed & offered a refreshing aperitif whilst we admired the stunning view which overlooks the famous volcano & the Aegean Sea. Our luggage was taken to our room for us. Our romantic suite was breathtaking, beautifully designed with tranquil colours, lovely soft linen & double bed with a newly renovated spacious bathroom. Our room was fully equipped with all the necessary facilities including direct dial phone & wireless internet. Blue Dolphins is ideal for everyone who appreciates luxury & style topped with a feeling of tranquillity. The hotel staff was very professional & friendly and were always ready to assist/ guide us with the wonders & adventures of the island. We will definitely stay there on our next visit to Santorini.

This hotel is exceptional in decor, service and comfort. Rooms with views of the Volcano are the envy of guests who are fortunate enough to get one, as I am sure they are booked fully every day of the year! Breakfast buffet extensive and excellent.
