Carpe Diem Exclusive Boutique Resort
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Pyrgos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 August 2013

Just returned from what must be the most relaxing holiday we've had on the island. We've stayed on the caldera previously but Carpe Diem has to be the most serene and relaxing place yet. The staff are absolutely brilliant as nothing is too much trouble for them. We stayed in one of the suites (room 10) which has views across the island to Fira and had the sun from morning till evening. Spending our days relaxing by our own pool made it a chore to even think about going anywhere else on the island. If you are needing a place to forget the hustle and bustle, Carpe Diem won't disappoint, can't praise it enough. A huge thank you to the staff for making it such a memorable holiday.

Arriving from 12 days in busy Mykonos, Carpe Diem was perfect for unwinding in the last few days of our holiday! A car picked us up from the airport and transported us to a the residence of the Carpe Diem, set in a jaw-drpping position on a a steep hill in the countryside of Pyrgos, overlooking the whole island of Santorini!
We were shown to our Junior Suites both with pools overlooking the same beautiful view, the rooms were large & spacious, although the wardrobe space was a bit basic, consisting of just a rail with hangers! I think a wardrobe could have been accommodated in this separate dressing room!
Considering the hotel was full & all the suites were occupied, it was so quiet & peaceful, which we thoroughly enjoyed! Vassa & her staff were lovely & attended to all our needs, from advice for suggested day trips on the island, to restaurants in Fira & Oia with amazing views of the sunset!
Santorini & the Carpe Diem are definitely places we plan to return to very soon!

We were at Carpe Diem for a week and would have loved to have stayed longer. A brilliant hotel for complete relaxation. Nothing was too much for the staff who were all extremely friendly and helpful. With breakfast served to your room until 1pm who could ask for more. The views were breathtaking and we often sat on the balcony watching the night lights. This hotel certainly exceeded our expectations and is highly recommended. An ideal hotel if you are looking for peace, quiet and romance. We are already planning our return!

What a very appropriate name for a boutique style hotel.All our expectations were met & exceeded.
Upon arrival in darkness it was quite daunting but we were greeted with a warm welcome.The next morning we woke up to spectacular views overlooking the sea on both sides of the island.
The rooms & plunge pools were clean & well designed/equipped
The a la carte breakfasts served on your terrace every morning was worth waking up for with no rush to place your order. A simple call up to 1-0clock in the afternoon.
Pygros town was only a short walk away once you had negotiated the short steep hill to the road.
I think a car is worthwhile hiring for a few days to see the island.
A really Fantastic holiday made special by all the staff.We will definitely return .

Room Tip: Ask for the higher level rooms as these give complete privacy.That said all the rooms are fantastic...

We visited Carpe Diem for one week in July 2013 to launch our honeymoon celebration. Our only regret was that we did not save it for last. Every one of our other stops was world-class in its own right but could not measure up to the Carpe Diem experience.

The Carpe Diem team is tremendous and the property is spectacular. We were warmly greeted at the airport then comfortably delivered to the hotel where we were met with the type of warm reception typically reserved for family and dear friends. We hardly noticed a check-in and were whisked off to our waiting room...fresh fruit and champagne quickly followed.

Every moment at the resort was wonderful...the dining, the pools, the spa, the other guests and the remarkable team. In addition, every recommendation the team made delivered a 5-star experience from the beaches to the shops to the restaurants to the excursions. Wherever we went, Carpe Diem and the team were known and respected; as a result we were treated as we were when on the property.

Even our departure, while sad, was as delightful as possible. The team purchased our ferry tickets, drove to another town to pick them up, hand delivered them, arranged timely comfortable transportation to the port then stopped in our room to say farewell and escort us to the waiting car. We were charged only for the tickets...no service fee, no processing fee, no pick-up fee...

After many years of extensive travel, we are happy to report that this is the finest resort we have ever experienced.

Room Tip: There are 10 suites. Five normal suites and 5 junior suites. They really should call the normal on...

We really enjoyed our stay 2nd stay at Carpe Diem. It is a great concept and you feel like the only guest - no effort seams too much and we would really like to thank Vasso and her team. The rooms are designed and decorated with thoughts and breakfast will be served a la carte on your private terrace which is by the way the perfect place to relax and enjoy sunny Santorini away from all the tourists. The view is spectacular. I personally would recommend to rent a car whenever you want to go shopping or discover the island - everything will be reachable in maximum 30 minutes. Have a pleasant stay - we will be back for sure!

We were looking for a relaxing week and that is what we got. The staff are all very helpful and cannot do enough for you. We had lunch and dinner at the hotel a couple of times which considering they do not operate a proper restaurant was really very good. Pyrgos has some lovely places to eat. The only downside is walking from the hotel to get to the road it is quite a steep long hill and definitely not to be tackled in heels!
Rooms were fab clean a truly lovely place
