We stayed in room 101 - probably the most amount of stairs that you can find in the property and that is saying alot! But the hotel is beautiful, sparkling clean, and very well attended. The rooms are "cave houses" with balconies and outdoor sitting areas overlooking the Aegean sea. Excellent "sunset" viewing, a must do in Santorini. This hotel...

A beautiful location far above the crystal clear sea. Lots of stairs but worth the climb The reception staff was incredible adding to our trip with great suggestions that even resulted in us revising plans and avoiding long drives. Sunset here is an event. Don't miss being part of a greek wedding at a fun show in Fira. Would definitely...

The view is ok and breakfast is good and they let us check in early. But the facilities in the room are really shabby. When I pat the bed, the dust flew out of the mattress. The matresses and pillows are realy uncomfortable. The bath room is big but no shelf space to put personal items and no bar to...

My wife and I stayed at Esperas for four evening in early May. The weather was mostly great and improved throughout the week which made the views better every morning. We had breakfast brought to us every morning which helped start the day on a great note and it only got better from there. I would recommend this hotel to...

Great hotel, still feels traditional and boutique. We got the amazing room 120 with both the balcony and the bedroom having a perfect view on the surroundings and the sunset (we made sure to be back every night on our balcony to watch it). Just walking distance to the main area in Oia (restaurants) and Amoudi Bay (fresh fish), this...

Dear Guest, thank you for your kind review. Our location is definitely one of the things we are very proud of here at Esperas. We are so lucky to have a property in a very strategic location that brings our guest just a few steps away from the heart of Oia but still far away from all the crowds.

Fantastic staff including the guys carrying luggage (lots of cool stairs), cheerful and helpful front desk support and Maria at the bar / restaurant. Clean rooms and grounds, incredible views, fantastic location and suburb service.

From the moment we walked out of Santorini airport we were made to feel very special. We were driven to Esperas by Danny, a witty and talented driver, in the Eperas badged Renault people carrier. On arrival our cases were lofted onto the shoulders of a very fit young man who loped off towards reception, Danny guided us through the...

I had 5 days of escape here all by myself, and it was just what I needed. The location is perfect, the staff are just lovely, and the facilities are wonderful. You will feel very fortunate and smile the whole time. The rooms all have their own gorgeous outlook and terrace and excellent wifi.

The views from the hotel were amazing. The majority of Oia has to leave their hotel and go to a point to get the view, but from this hotel, you can see it perfectly. The staff was very helpful and friendly. One thing to plan for is you are in a cave, so there while the temperature is regulated and...
