“Dreamy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2013

Days passed in a haze of languid luxury. This is a beautiful site with each room angled to ensure each little terrace area has a degree of privacy to make important decisions like when to put the parasol up. The contrast of the bright light and stunning views with the cool white interior of our room was so relaxing. The menu was elegant and light and service effective and relaxed without being fussy. The hotel is just 10 minutes walk into two and we enjoyed meandering round the restaurants. They gym was modest in terms of machines but with the most amazing view over the bay - and much needed given all the eating. The pool is the most beautiful I have ever swum in.

There were a few things that were surprising. Most of the sun loungers don't lie flat which was irritating. There was no chest of drawers in the room although there was hanging space and plenty of hangers. Breakfast was a little basic and repetitive.

But would I go back? In a heartbeat.

Cave rooms, infinity pool, quaint restaurant/bar, welcoming and helpful staff, and amazing views made our stay here more that we could have ever imagined. Easy walk into the center of Oia for shoping, restaurants, etc. But trust me, you will not be too eager to leave once you arrive. We dream of being able to return.

Room Tip: As a gay couple, we found the management, staff, and other guests very warm, welcoming, and engaging

Perivolas is lovely, the infinity pool is amazing, the milkshakes are delicious... but when you're paying this much you expect perfection and therefore tend to look at places with a slightly critical eye:

Make sure you get a transfer as the place is not the easiest to find. The rooms are lovely but there are a few things that are a little rough round the edges, worn, tatty, and not quite up to 5 stars in terms of attention to detail. That all said, the evening meal overlooking the sea brought it back. We had a lovely time but I don't think I'd return.

For those looking for more luxury at a cheaper price then San Antonio in Imerovigli was far better value for money. With Perivolas you are paying a lot for the location and reputation.

Every aspect of this lovely hotel amazed us; the food, location, view and service. We were greeted at the front gates upon arrival, feeling the upmost welcomed. The service was exceptional and the staff was very friendly and helpful. A several minutes walk away from the center of Oia, the Perivolas hotel has the perfect location. It was quiet and beautiful, while still being very central. There is an exclusiveness about the hotel, that makes it very private -- ideal for a relaxing vacation! We could not have chosen a better hotel in Santorini. We found the town of Oia, to be less touristy than the rest of the island, while still having good shopping and culture. The food at the hotel restaurant was amazing, we stayed in most nights, selecting our own private table somewhere on site -- magical! While we explored the town and island, we found it wonderful to come back to the Perivolas to relax, with a book and a variety of cocktails, served poolside. The rooms were also lovely; nice and cool in the old caves, painted white. There were delicious chocolates left out for us every night, with turndown service. It must be noted that this is not a children's hotel. The many rock stairs and no other activities besides the spa, gym and pool, makes it a poor "family-style" hotel. But with only one teenage daughter, for us this was not a problem. We are looking forward to going back in the future!

I can't say much more than what has been shared in other 4+ star reviews... the service is outstanding, the location is excellent, the views are amazing, the infinity pool is perfect, and the overall ambiance helps remind two people why they are together.
A wonderful stay and we will be back.

Recommendations: be prepared for stairs, which is a reality in most of Santorini, and hire a good babysitter so you can leave your kids at home for this trip.

Room Tip: Call the property and tell them what you're looking for. I could've spent more, but based on...

Perivolas hotel & staff have embraced us for a one of a kind vacation.. We have enjoyed every minute of our stay with the personalized treatment, staff's smiles, breathtaking views, great architecture, proximity to Oia's city center, and the feeling of royalty while staying at Perivolas.

A special thank you goes to Sofia, Bessy, Vanda & Dionysia -- these ladies are outstanding !!! They have offered my mom assistance far before our visit and guided her through planning our family vacation. They were always there for us and also helped my mom find the best restaurant to celebrate a special birthday occasion.

- The guest rooms and suites make you feel at home - the housekeeping staff always leaves a special touch to the rooms.
- Breakfast at their restaurant is always delightful- fresh and homegrown ingredients start your day right.
- Their infinity pool is remarkable- the panoramic view that always offers a Kodak moment.
- The front desk/ concierge office is always attended by a well spoken and knowledgeable ladies ( most of them are mentioned above).
- the restaurant staff is fantastic .

To sum it all- Perivolas Hotel is one of the best hotels we ever stayed at .. I would recommend it to any seasoned traveler looking for perfection.

Suited in an exceptional location is this fantastic hotel - Perivolas. It is the original hotel based on traditional Greek house architecture.. A lot of others have cropped up subsequently. Situated in a quiet part of Santorini in the village of Oia, you can spend your time just soaking in silence and beauty - a most therapeutic combination. What sets this place apart is the incredible service that you receive and the attention to detail in everything you experience. The size and impeccable quality of the room, the taste of the food and cocktails, the delicious welcome wine, the amazing infinity pool all speak volumes of the commitment of this place to guest experience. Every single person here is committed to giving you memories that will last a lifetime and they do that passionately. Every thing just gets done and seemingly effortlessly.Excursions are not a "one size fits all" and care is taken to ensure that they fit your requirements. We spent an amazing day on a boat that took just us out to various places where we could snorkel and swim. And we could stop where we wanted and do what we wished with an experienced Captain looking out for us. My personal highlight was when one of the team at Perivolas understood my passion for photography and volunteered to take me out at six in the morning to get some great shots. It takes a passion for service excellence to deliver such an unique experience. Our five days here were just so memorable that as I left, I made a promise to myself to come back again soon. To relax in a little bit of heaven, you must come here!!

Room Tip: For a small family room number 15 is great. And for a wonderful view take room number 18.
