“Wow!”
Reviewed October 31, 2009

This may be one of the most beautiful hotels we've ever stayed at. It is brand new, so remarkably clean. The rooms are generous in size with remarkable views. The pool is amazing. Staff is incredibly helpful and friendly - even if a little slow on occasion, but this is Greece, so who really cares.

Simply put, it was 4 of the most relaxing nights we've ever spent somewhere - even if it did rain a couple of times.

Without a doubt, I would recommend this hotel to anyone. That being said, it may not be for everyone. It is secluded from the other towns and may be a 12 euro cab ride to Oia, but that's what's wonderful about it. You don't have to fight the crowds, you can still go to the towns if you like, and your view is out to the caldera, not at cruise ships. So, if you want to enjoy the nightlife, be around hundreds of other people, and be able to walk to all the restaurants, etc, then this is not for you. For relaxation and seclusion, this is the place.

Outside of laying by the pool, the only thing we did was go to Oia for dinner - both 1800 and Sunset Taverna in Amoudi are highly recommended - and go on a trip with Santorini Sailing - expensive, but you're not with a ton of other people and the food is amazing.

Definitely one of the great new hotels around.

I read and read and read and read reviews - but somehow missed this one. We got sent here for one night when its sister hotel (Carpe Diem) was overbooked for our first night. The hotel is hands down, just, perfectly beautiful. It sits on this perfect cliff and has these wonderfully perfect rooms and is clean and new and fresh and mmm... just nice. We got a honeymoon suite and wished we never had to leave.

As with many posh, stuck-up places - especially new and boutique ones - the staff become a bit cranky and snooty. We ran into a bit of that, and its our only gripe - otherwise its perfect. It is not in a town, but its a 10 minute drive from Oia - so if you are planning on having a car, bike or moped - have no fears.

The room and the hotel and the view are just perfect.

Our breath is taken away when we arrive at the unbelivably Beautiful San Antonio Suites.

The location, the solitude, and so much much more.

Our Suite was Heaven the Pool was sensational and the Staff went aboveand beyond their duty of care.

We were treated like Royalty and had the most marvelous week staying at this sensational property.

Our Thanks to the Gorgeous Chrysa / Maria and staff for a very memorable stay.

We have spoken with and referred All to your magnificent property, and we miss you.

We have both travelled to many destinations all over the world but the charm of this property has truly won our hearts.

In fact this must be one of the Top ten must see properties in the world.

Do yourself a favour and spoil yourself by staying at the San Antonio Suites and be pampered by a stunning location / 10 star accommodation and truly hosptable gracious staff.

Cannot wait to return

My husband and I were lucky enough to be upgraded to this unbelievably wonderful hotel. We were a bit worried about the location at first, being that it is not within walking distance to any of the towns. But, when we arrived, we were no longer worried about that. We pretty much didn't even leave the hotel the whole first day we arrived there. It was TOO BEAUTIFUL!! The lobby was gorgeous and the staff was wonderful. The breakfast there was the best out of all four hotels we stayed in during our trip.

Although you are not able to see a full sunset from the hotel, it was still absolutely beautiful. The only way to really see the beautiful sunset that everyone talks about is if you go to Oia. That is where you want to be. Get there early though if you want to be able to sit and enjoy the sunset. Be sure to get a seat that is a good height about the walkway because people start crowding on the walkway and could possibly block your vew.

The pool was absolutely splendid! Not only was it beautiful, but guests are asked not to dive or splash around so it was very relaxing. I was awake but thought I was dreaming. The fresh water in the pool was the perfect temperature and there were always fresh towels available. The drink from the restaurant were delicious too.

The room was perfect. It was very large and the air conditioning worked absolutely perfect. The bed was SO comfortable too! One day I did notice a few ants crawling under the couch. I informed the front desk and someone was there immediately to help resolve the problem. There location on the caldera sometimes allows for ants to come around. It wasn't that bad though and immediately after the staff cleaned it up they were gone and we didn't see any for the rest of the trip.

Speaking of the staff.. they are wonderful!! If you call for room service, they are pretty much at your door after you hang up the phone. We ordered coffee very late one night and they were there within only a couple of minutes. We had to leave very early for our flight. I believe it was around 5 or so. The gentleman at the front desk that night had a small continental breakfast brought to our room at 4:30 with our wakeup call and had a shuttle ready for us when we got to the front desk to checkout.

Even though there are not any towns within walking distance from the hotel, we still went out either night to either Fira or Oia (and you're directly in between both which is convenient). The taxis to and from were extremely cheap! If I remember correctly, only around 5 euro a trip! I enjoyed the location of the hotel also because it was very secluded.

Ask the hotel staff anything and they will be able to help you. They can help set up excursions or call a taxi for you and they are more than happy to help you out in any way possible.

I will never ever forget this place....

We were upgraded here from their sister hotel "Sun Rocks". We had the master suite which was lovely but we would have liked a shower. The space was clean, the bed was comfortable, the pool was remarkable, the food was perfect, but the service lacked. We waited to be seated for breakfast one day for 10min and we had to grab our own napkins/cups. Sun Rocks had much better service. The hotel was between Fira and Oia and not walkable. Thankfully the bus stopped right out front.

This has got to be the top hotel in Santorini. The service is unbelieveable. They will go out of their way to make your stay the most memorable. The nicest views I have ever seen. Period. Top honeymoon pick!

this is a lovely hotel. The staff are really friendly and had great personalities. Location is good however it is a 12 EURO cab ride to Oia, main town, and they should mention this or provide some sort of shuttle bus. Also ensure they haven't planned a wedding in the main area of the hotel while you are there. our room had views onto the pool, when we arrived they left a letter saying a wedding would take place and finish at 12 midnight. It continued until 2.30 and felt like i was in a horrible greek nightclub. They shouldn't hold events in such public areas. Most people there are couples wanting a relaxing holiday - if we want bad music and all the noise we'd stay in Ibiza - think about this. Otherwise it is a lovely hotel.
