“WOW xxxxxxx”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Ive been travelling to the greek islands for over 30 years, and this tops any place I've ever stayed, Beautifully presented room, great balcony and amazing view from the bottom of santorini caldera to the top. We stayed for eleven days, 31st may to 11th june 2014, if you want peace and quite, you can't beat this hotel, the room was spotless, cleaned everyday and clean towels everyday (lovely towel messages left on the bed every day by Vivian the very pleasant cleaner) we had a double bed and it was huge and very comfortable and the pillows where comfortable too ! Sunrise is fab, if you can tear yourself from you bed, the sunsets to the left hand side of the hotel, and the beautiful colours in the sky can be seen from your balcony. The best sunset i could recommend instead of packed oia( which you must also do) is take yourselves a bottle of wine and a mat to sit on, and drive to the lighthouse about 8mins away, sit on the rocks and enjoy.......Fab Place xxx And i have pancake withdrawal symptoms xxx

This small family run hotel is offering great value!
You get the spectacular views of the Caldera you were looking for , and at the same time you can enjoy a relaxed friendly atmosphere.

The room was very clean, and was serviced daily.
The homemade breakfast was great, albeit the same every day,
The staff, Snoopy included, were friendly and helpful, and the restaurant offered some very well made dishes.

Certainly recommend it, and plan to return next time we are in Santorini.

Room Tip: All rooms have spectacular views, but choose those that also have view of the pool.

If you want the best views over the caldera, Santorini, Oia, sunset , dawn and avoid the crowds and high prices, stay here!
Newly built on the cliff face on acres of property= no neighbours, directly above the sea, with a large pool , beautiful room with balcony, lounge , licenced café and great breakfast, it is one of the best B&B we have stayed at.
300 m walk to supermarket and bus, and close to ancient Akrotiri, which you should not miss.
15 minute drive into Santorini for sightseeing and shopping. The pool and view are far better than the beaches!

Family and staff were amazing. Very friendly and helpful. Better location for me, away from the cruise/tourist crowds of Oia and Thiera and less expensive too. Rooms were clean and simple. breakfast was good. Many items homemade and from local farms. Can't see the sunsets, but the sunrises are just as pretty. Beautiful views from the room and nice pool too. A short bus ride or taxi away if you want to go to Oia or Thiera, also a short bus ride to Akrotiri ancient archaeological site. Best value!

Room Tip: I stayed in room #6. Great views over the cordillera.

This was the best stay of our entire trip. Staying here is peaceful, welcoming, the family is beautiful! The views are something else... Sunrise / sunset, spectacular. A million dollar view for a very affordable price. The bed is comfortable. The food was yummy. Did I mention the view. Sit up in bed, look out the window... And you can see the ocean, from the cliffs... Take two steps out onto the balcony, and the ocean again... Breathtaking. Loved it, and can't wait to return with my whole family!!

If I could have rate Blu Rooms more than 5/5, I would have done it. Everything was incredibly beyond what we could have imagined. First of all, the view is almost surreal, absolutly breathtaking. And unlike to most of "panoramic restaurants/panoramic hotels/anyotherpnoramictouristicfacilities" the food is homemade, great quality and the atmosphere is that of a little family hotel, relaxed, laid-back and friendly. Breakfast are generous, delicious and really home made.The location is great, quite off-centered from the main cities of the island which made us feel like this little corner of paradise was ours. Just regret we could not have acces to the swimming pool at night. The rooms all have a little private balcony (or terrace) with garden furniture. Cleaning is made all days. The staff is so sweet and the chemistry was great. We just felt here like at home. Basically, it was the perfect stay. Even the music in the entrance was cutting edge music (surprisingly close to the french radio station Nova). Last but not least, the smile of the guy at reception is at least as beautiful as the caldeira...

Just want to spend 5 words about the 5 days we spent in Blu Rooms:

- Amazing view spacing from Oia to the smal beaches down the Caldera at Akrotiri (a hidden beach is located just below the hotel and permits to bath in Caldera).

- the zone is very still, no parking issues and even the pool is enjoyable and has a superb view.

- Good-looking, clean, blue and white rooms with a bottle of Santorini white welcoming us.

- The hotel is run by a gentle, delicious family.

- Table served breakfast with excellent "lokoumades" (fried sweets wih honey and cinnamon) which makes it a very good value for money.
