Reviewed September 12, 2012

Ideal Location, Beautiful sunsets.
Amazing service.
Pool is incredible just overhangs on the edge of the cliff face.
Just a stunning place. Balcony's are large, inside furnishings are minimal & very clean & Pristine.
Room service expensive.

So, we booked 4 nights at Sun Rocks, and enjoyed 3 at Chromata! Whilst we were really annoyed at the treatment we received from Sun Rocks who were overbooked so moved us to Chromata ultimately our room at Sun Rocks was woeful, and our room at Chromata was BEAUTIFUL!

Our suite was opulent and spacious, beutifully decorated with a lovely bathroom and freestanding bath.

We had a private verranda with two sunloungers on it and a bistro set on which they served breakfast overlooking the Caldera. We sunbathed there every day and nipped down to the pool for a dip when we needed.

There is an infinity pool which is breathtaking, great pool bar, cold jacuzzi etc. The only criticism you could level was that the poolside area is quite cramped with space taken up with sunloungers, but that's a problem with the whole of Santorini and the lack of space (literally) on the cliffs, so you'll find the same everywhere.

Staff were lovely, especially the guys at the pool bar/breakfast etc.

We would go back here over sun rocks without a doubt. Chromata has more rooms but somehow manages to feel quieter and more private than Sun Rocks. I think because it is in Imerovgli and not Firostefani space isn't quite at the premium so the rooms are bigger, balconies are better etc.

At the end of the day, given the pretty astronomical price it has to be excellent, which it was, but I would stop short of saying it blew our minds like some boutique hotels do. That's because this is part of a big group so it lacks the personal touch that we have had elsewhere in the world (Insolito in buzious springs to mind).

All in all, wonderful end to a great trip to Santorini.

Have just returned stayed in beautiful Room 8 and had a superb week. Really relaxing experience. Food was fantastic and staff could not do enough to help and deliver to you as a guest. The view is captivating and the pool and rooms make the most of it allowing you to enjoy it at every opportunity. Attended a full moon dinner hosted around the pool with a tasting menu that would rival the best eateries globally. They have a gifted young chef and a staff that are superb. Thanks to them all for caring about creating a wonderful experience - to George, the superb barman and the rest of the team a big thank you. Having spent time walking around and seeing the island there is no where else I would choose to stay and i hope to have the opportunity to return again.

Stayed June 2011 , for 4 Nights . We were with large group and landed here after Mykonos. This was the best Hotel we had stayed at in Greece. Not for total luxury but just total bliss , views and intamicy. The Hotel is basically set into the side of a Mountain the views are simply the best I have ever seen. The rooms are basically cut out cave like rooms but with all the luxuries, Ipod ,Plasma , Spa Bath , Walkin robe etc. All have private balcony. There is no restuarant at this hotel so Breakfast was brought to your room and ate on your balcony over looking the views.
Neer by there isnt much but we hired Quad bike from outside for only 16 euros a day and me and my wife explored Santorini by Quad. A break form the Kids it was simply magic. I would love to return one day. Santorini is a great a fantastic greek isle. Great shopping and beaches.

We especially loved the infinity pool at this Hotel.

Stayed here with my husband on our honeymoon. We deliberated about splurging on the Chromata quite a bit, given the priceyness of the hotel. In the end, I think it was a good, solid hotel--and I have no real complaints. The view is magnificent, the fact that it has a pool is great (lots of Santorini hotels we looked into didn't), the menu is fairly good and very reasonably priced (lunch was great, breakfast so-so). But, given the price (about $600 USD/night), I was expecting more. The service was good (nothing to write home about), the pool was fairly small and you can't use it after sun down, and the rooms are fairly straightforward--not nearly as impressive as one would expect. That said, after spending time in Fira and Oia, I think that the Chromata is probably on the nicer end of hotels in Santorini, and Santorini in general is fairly pricey. But when deliberating extensively over whether to pick this hotel or another slightly cheaper hotel, I would have loved to know to not get swept away in the glamour of the online photos. It's a good hotel, but maybe not worth the price.

Room Tip: Make sure to ask for a room that ISN'T adjacent to the pool (you'll share a wall with the po...

Just book, don't think!! You will have a fantastic, romantic time staying here. The views are unmatched. The rooms are brand new with modern designs and a lot of space. You cannot find a hotel like this anywhere else. The rooms are tucked within the cliff which provide total privacy. It is paradise found.

Staff was great. View was...unbelievably amazing. I had to pinch myself every time I walked out to our balcony. I couldn't believe I was so lucky to even being able see what I was seeing. Wow. Still in awe of that view. We had dinner on our balcony the first evening and it was delicious and the breakfast (that was included in our stay) was plentiful and prepared perfectly. First class all around!

Room Tip: You can not go wrong with this hotel. We were in room 6 and we like that no one could really look...
