We have just finished out holiday here at the San Antonio and we were blown away from start to finish.

The hotel itself is absolutely stunning, everything about it from the driveway to the reception to the rooms. Not forgetting the infinity pool that looks out over the most spectacular views. The pictures I researched on the internet before booking seriously don't do the place any justice at all.

The room itself is beautifully presented and a great size, it has aircon, safe, fridge/minibar and a brilliant bathroom. The only very minor point I would raise is that there isn't a shower screen. The showers are wonderfully powerful, however this can soak the bathroom once you've been in. But other than that you will not find fault.

The pool is stunning, there are plenty of sun loungers available, with some on an upper deck away from the pool as well. Our room was next to the pool, where we had our own terrace with a sun sofa as another option. The staff round the pool will place fresh towels when any of the beds become available and will happily put up the sun parasols if you need some shade.

There's a restaurant next to the pool where you have breakfast, with tables outside on the cliff edge looking directly out over the stunning scenery. The breakfast is brilliant with your choice of eggs each day along with fruit, pastries, cheeses, meats and hot items. After breakfast it offers a lunch menu and drinks throughout the day, the staff are brilliant and will bring your drinks out to you by the pool. In the evening it turns into a fine dining restaurant, with absolutely stunning food being offered. Again if you wish you can sit on the outdoor cliff edge tables.

The staff were absolutely fantastic and made that extra bit of difference in our stay. They will arrange any tables for dinner for you, the hotel offers a luxury car and/or minibus as a taxi to anywhere you want to go. They will organise trips or hire cars as well. I honestly can't praise the staff enough. The maid did a brilliant job twice a day, preparing your room at night with fresh towels and a bottle of water by your bed, along with removing any decoration cushions.

I cannot recommend this hotel enough, it's stunning and well worth the cost. It's situated between Oia and Fira the two main towns so you can choose to stay in the peace and quiet of the hotel or head a short journey into the towns. We would love to come back again.

This hotel exceeded expectations.
Upon arrival we were greeted by "Good Morning Mr&Mrs P, we have been expecting you". Such a lovely personal touch.
We were also given a complimentary room upgrade to a suite with a hot tub (room 25) which was beautiful and quite secluded. You could sunbathe on the large balcony without being overlooked.
The hotel pool area was stunning. Very tranquil and relaxing environment with amazing views of the caldera. Although it is worth mentioning that all sunbeds around the pool were reserved by 9am.
The hotel restaurant and bar was lovely. The food was amazing and the staff were most attentive. However, some may see the lunch menu as a bit pricey (roughly £50ish per couple).
The hotel is situated between Oia and Fira and its easy to join the hiking path to walk either way. Both taking roughly about an hour to walk to.
There is a bus stand right outside the hotel which will take you to Fira or Oia for €1.80 pp each way. Alternatively, taxis will cost about €20 each way.
We cannot rate this hotel enough. Perfect location, very attentive staff and relaxing atmosphere. We will definitely be returning

Fabulous hotel - but small enough to be intimate. Beautiful location with superb views over the bay. Helpful staff. Having breakfast included in the deal helped a lot - good variety to choose from. Free internet as well. Nothing not to like.

My friend and I have just returned after a week here and it was just fantastic, the hotel is a small boutique hotel but every bit worth the five stars I have given.

Welcome /greeting - friendly, easy and had a personal touch. Thank you to Nikoletta and the reception team nothing was too difficult for them. A great team.

Views - are simply stunning...

Rooms - clean, homely, and we slept really well every night the beds are soo comfy. Thank you Afroditi!

Pool area - the infinity pool has stunning views (the hotel is on the caldera side so the views are beautiful from wherever you are)

Restaurant - great wines and great food (can get a bit repetitive so venture out too!) perfect service thank you Georgia, George and the team you were great!

Spa - we had a full body and facial massage both were really relaxing and you get the spa to yourself including the jacuzzi and steam room.

Things to do - there is a lot to do such as excursions etc so you can choose. We also did morning yoga on the terrace that the hotel organised for us.

Taxi's/getting around - there are reviews about the hotel being further away. Our take on this was the hotel was perfect for serenity and relaxation and gave us the perfect location to choose where to go. The hotel books taxis for you and charges it to the room making life easier vs carrying euros. And although there is 39 taxis we had no problem getting anywhere. Everything is less than 20mins away and taxis are 15Euro max.

Oia is a must. Pretty place for beautiful pics and lots of boutique shops and a perfect sunset.

Thira is very busy and has a lot more bars, clubs and restaurants. And if you like to shop there are lots!

La Maison restaurant in Imerovigli was exquisite- we had a sunset dinner again great food and wine.

Avocado was a fab restaurant more homely food, great wine and really great service. Bigger portions too.

In summary the pictures do not do this beautiful place justice! If you want a place to relax and recharge this place is it. I cannot fault it - we had the perfect holiday and will definitely be back.
