“Vacation in heaven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I were on our honeymoon and couldn't have chosen a better place to relax! First, we were able to get our rooms for a lower price by taking their "Name your price" option off the website. Though we arrived early in the morning at 6am and couldn't check in because it was full, we were still greeted with coffee and fresh juice to enjoy on the poolside.

Your breakfast is included and has great variety (and taste!) and the maid service comes in twice a day. I definitely recommend springing an extra few euros for the larger rooms (we stayed in Charm and Rose suites). Rooms were very clean, tastefully decorated, modern tvs and Netbook in each room to use. Wifi works great except if you are in one of the lower suites, but it didn't really bother us. You're on vacation and there's so much more to see than be on the Internet!

Walk to Fira was exhausting in the blazing sun! It's a lot more hot and longer if you take the path along the caldera than if you take the main road, but it's definitely more scenic. And there's always shade you can duck in if you need it.

We rented an ATV from Jimmy's which allowed us to go all over the island, and watch the sunset in Oia unobstructed (in imerovigli, the sun sets behind the volcano, but it's also nice to watch the sunset from your private outdoor jacuzzi if your suite has one). We also went to the black beach- I recommend keeping your flip flops on because the black sand will burn your feet!

Best meals were at Anogi which is a quick walk from the hotel. Better than any of the meals we had in Fira or Oia. The staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. The tomato balls were to die for. We ate 2 out of our 3 nights here! No view of the caldera or sea, but you spend the whole day sightseeing and taking pictures of the view so we didn't care.

Overall, wish we could stay longer. Absolutely blissful! Definitely recommend Above Blue!

My husband and I were on our honeymoon and couldn't have chosen a better place to relax! First, we were able to get our rooms for a slightly lower price by taking their "Name your price" option off the website. Though we arrived early in the morning at 6am and couldn't check in because it was full, we were still greeted with coffee and fresh juice to enjoy on the poolside. The girls at reception were so nice and extremely helpful in giving us suggestions where to eat and what to do, and arranged airport transportation for us (22 euros each way)

The breakfast is included and has great variety (and taste!) and the maid service comes in twice a day. I definitely recommend springing an extra few euros for the larger rooms (we stayed in Charm and Rose suites). Rooms were very clean, tastefully decorated, flat screen tvs and a Netbook in each room to use. Wifi works great except if you are in one of the lower suites, but it didn't really bother us. You're on vacation and there's so much more to see than to be on the Internet!

Walk to Fira was exhausting in the blazing sun! It's a lot more hot and longer if you take the path along the caldera than if you take the main road, but it's definitely more scenic. And there's always shade you can duck in if you need it. I would still stay in imerovigli though because it's more quiet and relaxing and relatively short distance from the action.

We rented an ATV from Jimmy's which allowed us to go all over the island, and watch the sunset in Oia unobstructed (in imerovigli, the sun sets behind the volcano, but it's also nice to watch the sunset from your private outdoor jacuzzi if your suite has one).

Overall, wish we could stay longer. Absolutely blissful! Definitely recommend Above Blue and would come back in a heartbeat!

The staff here was wonderful and the views were stunning. Breakfast in the morning was delicious. We would definatley stay here again. The only thing preventing it from 5 stars-- we were in the Harmony suite and the balcony is NOT private. It is right next to a walking path so there is very little privacy when out on the balcony or the hot tub. Same with the Charm Suite. We asked to move but all the rooms were full. We made do and still had a great time. The nights were cool and we tried to get in the hot tub at night and it was freezing. We called and they said they shut them off when it is cold but would turn it back on. Other than that, I can not say again how wonderful the staff was and how great this place was.

Room Tip: The Harmony and Charm suites are next to a public walking path and people are looking in the balcony...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review and for taking the time out for us. We are here to ensure that our guests feel at home and to offer first class service and standards

We are very pleased to hear that you have enjoyed your stay with us, our services and we are very proud of the professionalism and friendliness of our staff. Your review and feedback it is much appreciated.

In regards to the Jacuzzi heating and only because this was the only small complain that you had from our hotel we would like to clarify that the only reason that we turned off the function of the Jacuzzi and not only the temperature was for your own safety, since the specific night that you mention , was so windy that the water from your hot tub was being blown off.

When the machineries of the Jacuzzi operate without water on a specific level, may cause big damage to the property and maybe to you.

We were never meant to cause any inconvenience to you during your stay at Above Blue Suites and we apologize for that.

Furthermore and in regards to anyone who is reading this response ,it is true that Harmony and Charm Suite is on the lower level of the hotel’s area, but this is the reason why we call them best value for money, since those suites have exactly the same facilities and views with the other suites and priced lower.

We thank you once again for the valuable feedback and we hope to accommodate you again at Above Blue Suites, if you ever decide to visit Imerovigli again !

This is one of our favs, when you arrive the staff greet you and then it's straight to your room, and they are pretty nice, The views are some of the best there is, sit down with a Red passion cocktail and tell me your not in heaven.
The prices are reasonable for food and beverages, but you can wonder down to other near by resaurants which are great, staff will give you a map and advise where to o and give option on what restaurant are good.
As its a small luxury hotel, you will find the staff are really good and attentive, And the bar tender/waiter Iliyan was great! Gold star for him .

Room Tip: Get out on the catemaran, oh and all the suites are very nice looking.

We got married in Santorini and although we didn't stay at this hotel managed to get a table in the restaurant which had amazing views of the Caldera and the sunset. We were only one of three tables and the food was to die for. service was exceptional and prices good......wish we could have stayed there, a perfect setting for a romantic meal in the evening. Totally recommend!

We stayed there for 1 week for our honeymoon and we loved it. The hotel was great and the staff very friendly. It has a breathtaking view of the sunset. It is also worth looking at some of the extra packages that they offer.
