What an amazing place we found here. We wanted a bit of luxury for our honeymoon, so were Willing to pay a little more, we did not expect half of the extra we got! We were taken to our suite (no. 6) past the intimate cocktail bar come reception and stunning infinity pool looking out to most of the island, a 270 degree view apparently. Vasso gave us a quick run down of what was where and which island was which.

We the got to our suit which instantly blew us both away. It was so spacious and the beautiful styling from the exterior was carried on inside. We were told that we would receive bottled water and hand made chocolates every night and that if we wanted anything just ask. Our private pool and Veranda area were beautiful and again well sized. We had sun from sunrise to sunset.

The staff at the carpe diem were amazing too. They are so helpful and lovely to chat with, their knowledge of the island, restaurant recommendations and places to go we're spot on. Vasso gave us some great places away from the tourist traps. Then between Yannis, Yannis, Georgia and Georgia (couldn't make it up) we had everything we needed, great food delivered to us as and when, our room cleaned impeccably every day and some good chat and laughs along the way. They are a credit to the hotel industry!

The 'experience menu' is worth having, 3 beautiful candle lit courses served by the pool looking out onto a lit up Fira by night was fantastic.

Located just a short stroll into Pyrgos, it was so tranquil being that little bit away from the hustle and bustle of Fira. Saying that it was a very quick and cheap taxi ride into Fira which we did a few nights.

All in all it was a perfect two weeks of relaxation and sun and a perfect place to spend a honeymoon or even just a luxury holiday.

Thank you to all the staff at the Carpe Diem.

Just came back from the most incredible vacation in Greece! Spent 5 nights at Carpe Diem where we had the most amazing experiences of our lives. The hotel staff was on point, they provided the best recommendations, were so helpful and on top of everything. The views were spectacular, our room was spacious and very clean we could not have asked for anything more. The room was also surprisingly quiet, we felt as if we were completely alone, never once disturbed by another person or sound. The hotel location was perfect for us, only a couple minute drive to Kamari Beach and minutes from everything. We rented a quad and enjoyed the adventurous drives around the island. Safety was never a concern, sleeping with the doors and windows open was never a second thought. Amazing and unforgettable experience.

I highly recommended!

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!
