“Phenomenal”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

What can I say? Extraordinary location, with a view to die for -- and a staff that really knows how to go the extra mile. We stayed in the smallest suite, which means the rooms can only get better from our benchmark.

Just bear in mind that this is Santorini, with lots of steep stairs wherever you go. This is not for people who have trouble climbing, or with a fear of (steep) heights.

Room Tip: Avoid room 110 if you can. Because it's right on the main stairway, it has the least privacy of...

Could not be happier with my experience at Astra Suites. The view of the sunsets cannot be topped. My Wife and I took an ATV, which astra provided, all around Santorini and I did not find a better part of the island then our hotel. In the reception desk they have all their awards on the wall. I am not shocked that they have won a bunch of awards. The service, views and food were perfect. Highly recomend having dinner at the restaurant at the hotel at sunset. Amazing food and view. I would love to go back there at somepoint in my life.

Room Tip: Suites with the private balcony are amazing

We just came home from a stay at the Astra Suites in early june and we could not have been more impressed and happy that we chose to stay with them.
We arrived in Santorini via the high-speed 5 ferry. At the port we were met by and astra suites van and driver that was waiting for us with a sign, cool water and eagerness to please. From the port it was about a 25 minute drive to the astra suites through the capital of Fira. The AS are nestled into one of the highest points on Santorini with what can only be described as a ridiculous view of the volcano and surrounding caldera. With is location being perched in a mountain the AS as well as everything on the island there are many many stairs, the bellman took care of all of our bags expertly as Im not sure we could have don it ourselves, my wife does not travel light. Once you arrive its on to reception, the office is small but the staff is wonderful. They give you the lay of the land, how everything works, what you need to know about the island and things that you can absolutely not miss. They believe in leaving you alone, they are eager and want to help, but if you want pure privacy you will hardly see them. Breakfast everyday is served to you personally at your room, you will be given menus to fill out with anything you can think of and no limit. The food itself was wonderful, try the bacon and feta omelette, or the scrambled eggs with feta. Be as specific as you can and you will get exactly what you want.
The room was amazing, we had a pool suite and it was really perfect, large and well planned out. The living room had a nice couch and brand new flatscreen tv with channels for many languages. There was a full mini kitchen with well priced mini bar. They reccommend not drinking the tap water so everyday they supply you with a large bottled water, or anytime you ask for a room service. The bed was large and comfortable with plenty of pillows. The room had 2 air conditioners with remote that worked very well, every day we came back to a well cooled room. The bathroom had a separate room for the toilet, plenty of counter space and a large shower. My only comment would be that the shower is completely open which for some might be awkward but it was clean and had good pressure which is all i ask for! Our unit had a private deck area with lounge chairs, umbrella and 10x10 private pool, there is actually a door in the living room that leads into the pool which was cool.
The AS was also really a perfect location on the island. You can walk 30 minutes to the capital of Fira or take a 8 minute cab ride. Fira offers everything from food and drink to donkey rides and port access. Some time should deff be spent here, its great for shopping and going out at night, the local are all nice helpful and the restaurant will all compete for your patronage.
On the far side of the isalnd is the city of Oia, its best know for its views of the santorini sunsets. they have countless restaurant many with rooftop seating, we went to the Pelekanos and the view and food were both fabulous. There are shops and art galleries as well as the famous blue roofed churches
On the opposite end of the Island is Akritori, they have the red, black and white sand beaches, as well as the ancient city of akritori which is an archaeological dig site that is very cool. It would be good for you to rent a car one day to see all these places. If you do so the AS will bring a rental to their front door and the get you set up without even leaving the hotel.
overall the you should look no further than the astra suites, it is absolutely a cant miss hotel. The reception staff was amazing, the bellmen work their butts off, the wait staff is wonderful and they all made our stay memorable.

Room Tip: Take the Thalassa sunset cruise

Perched on one of the highest points on the rim of the caldera, the views are breathtaking and will live up any sky high expectations that you might have for Santorini. The rooms were great and the common areas immaculate. What sets this place above the myriad of beautiful hotels along the rim is the incredible staff. From the pool bartender to the front desk, they are top notch and very attentive to any needs you might have

It happened to have a little problems with the weather but everybody was helpful and for our short stay I would say it was very good experience.
Imerovigli is a lovely town,but perhaps it can not compare to Oia.
Our room was relatively small but well appointed and we had some delicious breakfasts.

Wow! What a great reception. George gave a great briefing and overview of the island, the ladies were right there with smiles and ready to do whatever to be helpful, bellmen worked there rear ends off as did the wait staff. Wonderful breakfasts served in your room (which by the way was the best!) We had a king deluxe suite and we could have lived in it. Dinner on our deck provided as good a view as there could be on the island. Try the veal steak. Superb!!!. Tried to get the recipe but to no avail. That was the only down side of anything about Astra Suites.

Room Tip: Go for the king deluxe suite.

Kind people, attentive & personalized service, outstanding breakfast delivered to your door each morning and world-class sunsets. Can't imagine there's a better spot while visiting Santorini. Major bonus -- lots of restaurants in walking distance.
