I booked this hotel for my daughter and myself based on recommendation from their sister hotel in Mykonos. Hesitated at first due to some of the reviews on various websites. So glad we decided to chance it! Got an amazing price through the Small Luxury Hotel Website, and a room upgrade. Cavelike room was cozy with small sitting area and fridge. Plenty of room to accommodate all of our luggage.(we had a lot as I was moving my daughter back from London to California).Views were spectacular, not only from our large private balcony, but from the seating area and even the bed. Ample breakfast on the balcony daily, included in price.

However, the best part of the stay was the staff. Everyone there went out of their way to make our trip a fabulous experience. All of our questions and requests were handled with professional enthusiasm. Need a restaurant? Reservation made. Boat cruise? Cab? Reservation done. Help with shipping? Prices provided and alternative suggestions offered. Help with all those bags? Don't lift a finger, we have it. We felt very cared for, and really relaxed; and we have made some new friends. We had room number 1, near reception and very private. Loved our stay!

Room Tip: Please note, as with most places in Santorini, there are many, many, many stairs and no elevators...

We had a wonderful experience staying at this hotel, the views are beautiful, the rooms very clean and comfortable and the staff are very helpful and welcoming and attended to our every needs.. we spent an entire week here and would have loved to have stayed longer.. The hotel is without a doubt one of the best on the island as we have been visiting Santorini for a few years in a row and I can definitely say that this is thus far the best we have stayed at!! and will be doing so in our future travels, we will continue to book On the Rocks in the future as it has all the amenities we could ask for in luxury accommodation!! I would highly reccommend this hotel to anyone visiting Santorini..

5 women travelling. Were upgraded to a suite that had private balcony with swimming pool and two rooms next to each other. The views are unbelievable, the staff friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and breakfasts good. If you are unfit, start exercising before you get there or book a room close to reception as the stairs are a killer. There is a slight sewerage smell at times but that is to be expected once you see the island and the piping situation. Would recommend it to everyone.

We have just returned from Santorini having spent three days at On The Rocks.
We arrived at 6.00am- 8 hours before check in.The night receptionist could not have been more helpful;he allowed us to shower and arranged for coffee.
On returning at the allocated hour we were upgraded to a suite- a fascinating bedroom burrowed into the cliff and a well appointed lounge.Our terrace had the most marvellous view over the bay.
The staff could not have been more helpful,all of whom spoke good english.
Breakfasts served on the terrace were excellent.
The only drawback so far as I was cocerned was the stairway to the street-at 66 yrs of age these were not easy,but an inevitable feature of Santorini.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at or near the top-the hotel is on about seven tiers accessed by fairly steep stairs...

The views are spectacular.
The staff are friendly, knowledgable and extremely helpful.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.
Some people on our flight paid half as much as we did for the holiday, but they didn't stay here!
Worth every penny and more.

My girlfriend and I went on a months tour of Europe and had 6 days to visit Greece. On our 3rd day we got to Imerovigli and immediately fell in love with it. We stayed at On the rocks hotel which was one of the best hotels we stayed at in our entire trip, not only because of the staff which knew English and were really nice and friendly, the food which was great but most of all because of the view we had from our balcony: the sunsets we saw there are purely amazing. We ended up staying for another 5 nights there and every evening we just waited for that beautiful sunset.

To me, "Luxury" means going to a beautiful and special place where you don't go everyday, while having a wonderful and memorable time!
It's waking up a have a breathtaking view of the sea, the sky, sunsets, and great weather. It's going to a place where people greet you by your name, and being comfortable and relaxed. Luxury is having a great location, and having the possibility to walk around.
We had all that at "On The Rocks". Thank you Olga, Katerina, Anna, Tania and all the Staff for contributing to our memorable stay!
We won't forget the staff's kindness and professionalism, the comfortable rooms "embedded" in the rocks, the pleasant breakfasts looking at the "Caldera", or the way everything went smooth and relaxed, with no flaws.
Hope to see you soon, Santorini!

Room Tip: All the rooms have wonderful views. Ask for an upgrade, because if they have availability, they will...
