The view is spectacular with a possibilty to see the caldera on around 180° up to Oia. We have a superior room which worth the value as you have a direct view on the caldera and the swimming pool. The swimming pool is a litlle bit small for swimming but perfectly located to relax in the water and a perfect view on the caldera. We had dinner every evening on our small terrasse, and the food was good, affordable and served with big quantity. The bad thing is that you can have a private terrasse used by other guests to go in their own rooms, which is not confortable if you want to envoy privately this perfect moment. Rooms are nice but a little bit minimalist and simply decorated.

Room Tip: Request a room where nobody has to go through your own terrasse to go to his room.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for choosing our hotel and for taking the time to leave a report for our property. We were very glad to have you here and we hope that we will see you again in our premises in the future!

It is very important to hear your opinion and will undertake every effort to keep our quality services up to the highest standards and improve wherever this is possible. In this regard, we have changed all our mattresses with the world famous Coco-mat ones, made from all natural materials and designed to improve your sleep quality.

We are looking forward to welcome you in 2013 and have more of your reviews here.

All the best from Tholos Resort

We stayed at Tholos Resort for 7 nights in late October. The hotel were very helpful pre-arrival in arranging the transfer by email along with answering any other questions sent by email. Our arrival was leisurely and relaxing, our luggage was carried for us and there was no sense of rushing us to the room. We were upgraded from our standard room to a superior room by one of the lovely Annas who then took time to tell us more about the resort & the island and answer any questions. Our room was very spacious with beautiful views of the Caldera. You could not tire of such amazing views and it was a joy to wake up to them each morning or watch the sun set in the evening. Each room has a private balcony where breakfast is served each morning which was great. We were encouraged to order breakfast for a particular time on the evening before, however, this was not essential.

The pool area was very relaxing with the same spectacular views from the room. Because of the location, the hotel is fairly private, calm and quiet. We had some great cocktails and light meals from the poolside bar also. We found the staff at Tholos to be extremely helpful and accommodating. Not only did both Anna's provide excellent recommendations for restaurants, cruises and places to visit, they also allowed us to use the jacuzzi in an unoccupied balcony on our last evening and arranged for champagne to be delivered (we were celebrating an anniversary). This was a really lovely gesture that sealed the end to a perfect week. I would mention that we were staying end of season so the hotel was pretty quiet which is why they were able to provide the room upgrade and use of the jacuzzi!

We did have three minor niggles, none of which were serious enough to cause any complaint, however, they may be useful...All of the rooms are fitted with a kitchenette (sink, worktop, fridge plus crockery, glasses and cutlery) all of which we did use and were glad to have. However, the motor of the fridge in our open-plan room would occasionally wake us up as-and-when it clicked on. The shower had 3 settings: hydro-massage jets; hand-held shower head; and, fixed shower head. The fixed shower head was mounted too low to stand under, but it was still perfectly possible to shower using the hand held one. Part of the charm of the hotel is the traditional wooden shutters on the windows and doors, which were unlike some of the more conventional UPVC types on other local properties. This did mean, however, that on two nights where it was very windy there was some rattling from the shutters. This woke us on the first night but we resolved this problem easily by closing and locking all the shutters and wedging some folded paper where there was still some 'rattle room' at the top of the door so it was fine for the second night. The winds were close to 20mph so fairly uncharacteristic for most of the year, but top tip is to batten down the hatches if it's particularly windy on your stay!

Overall we had a fantastic experience and would recommend Tholos Resort to any would-be visitor to Imerovigli.

My girlfriend and I were there.. We got an amazing room (each room in the resort has a view to the sea- one of the most amazing view I've ever seen...)

Wonderful staff- they helped us with everything we needed (Even late check out because our ferry back to crete was late..) - they know everything there is to know about the island and they always eager to help.

I really recommend this hotel !

Room Tip: PIck a room close to the pool

Everything from the rooms to food to service and amenities were amazing! The staff are very nice and were there for anything we needed. Very private and quiet, also very close to Fira. Waking up to breakfast served right on our balcony looking out to the Mediterranean sea was breathtaking! Would definetly go back here! Thank you Tholos for giving us an amazing holiday experience!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Santorini hotel of your choice in Imerovigli, on the island of Santorini. Much beloved and world-famous, the island of Santorini in Greece is a place of awesome beauty and bewitching atmosphere. Its exceptional character is a blend of blazing volcanic rock, against the backdrop of the deep cobalt-blue sea and the clear Aegean sky. The imposing Caldera is the result of the volcano's biblical eruption, a crescent of cliffs rising steeply hundreds of meters above the water, with white villages nestled upon their tops. One of these picturesque settlements is Imerovigli, a small distance away from the capital of Santorini, Fira, where you can find Tholos Luxury Hotel Resort. Perched on the cliff of the Caldera, the hotel will offer you an accommodation of luxury and hospitality, in a magnificent setting overlooking the volcano. Panoramic vistas to the crater, submerged into the deepest blue waters, sparkling under the bright sunlight, will leave you enchanted in the day, while the spectacular sunsets that turn the landscape into a melange of dreamy pictures will make your memories unforgettable. The whitewashed apartments and studios, all in the traditional Cycladic style, are built on different levels of the cliff, with terraces or balconies facing the superb surroundings. In their discreetly luxurious interiors you'll find comfort and relaxation. At the patio by the outdoor pool on the other hand, you'll enjoy refreshing moments under the sun or romantic time under the stars. The service, day and night, is friendly and impeccable, while the hotel's owners are always at your disposal for your every need while staying here. ... more   less
