Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Decent hotel the view and pool make the place. The rooms are very old style and not luxury but very nice . It's in a great location and very quiet. The staff is helpful and stays out of the guests way.

My husband has been wanting to stay in a cave hotel and Perivolas met and exceeded his expectations. Everything about the design and décor of the hotel has been carefully thought out and flawlessly executed from the shower to the safe to the doors. Staff are polite if not enthusiastically friendly (with the exception of Dionysia, who is very welcoming), and the restaurant is quite good.

Perivolas is slightly outside the downtown, but we found the location to be advantageous. Oia is just a short, easy walk away and although many tourists flock to town to watch the sunset, we preferred the view from the hotel (watching the sun set over the whitewashed buildings in town). The location also helped us feel like we were truly getting away – the main goal of our vacation! Unlike other hotels on the island, there don't seem to be public walking paths running through the property, which helps keep the setting more peaceful and private.

Overall, we had a great stay and would enjoy returning!

The view is utterly fantastic and probably one of the best in Santorini. The rooms are simple the only complaint would be the service.. Our friends also stayed and they complained about the breakfast I can't remember why, but I do remember the attitude of the staff being if you don't like it stay else where...which is not really the attitude we are use to when staying at an expensive hotel. A stunning location marred only by the service....

Room Tip: Cave rooms similar to all over Santorini long corridors basic and minimal

Our jaws dropped when we first arrived. We were initially greeted by the concierge who gave us a tour of the property. Breathtaking. We felt so special from day one. We loved the hotel so much, we never left. Cancelled all our plans. Aside from the impeccable view, the rooms were so adorable! One negative is that the staff can be a bit snooty. One lady in particular- although the rest were very kind.

It's been four months since my wife and I visited Santorini. We can't get it out of our mind. Perivolas is the perfect cliffside perch from which to "take in" Santorini's spectacular caldera. With its icing-dipped walls and authentic, minimalist, almost reclusive feel, it was truly perfect.

Perivolas is pricey. We felt it was worth it. To be fair, it is not, by any stretch, the only place in Santorini or Oia to command spectacular views. Most hotels in this area seem to cling to the cliffside. I can't speak to them. I can only say that Perivolas was exactly what we wanted: no TVs, a small, close setting, spectacular views, faithful architecture and design, capable and friendly service.

Room Tip: We stayed in a superior suite. We loved it, but I can truly say that you should push your wallet as...

The views from this hotel are spectacular, some of the most amazing scenery I've seen. Set into the cliffs, the hotel is full of charm and character. There aren't many amenities but you really don't need much else when the setting is so perfect. We went for their suite with private pool which was well worth the price. The interior was quite basic but very comfortable.

Perivolas is a small cave hotel on Santorini. I have seen pictures of it and wanted to go there for a least 6 years. Finally, this October, we made it. I must say, it lived up to all my expectations. We would like to have stayed forever. However, we did stay for 3 nights. Originally, we thought we'd check out the ruins, wine vinyards, shopping. Except for a day of sailing around the island, we never left the hotel. It was just too beautiful. The view from our room was exquisite, especialy the sunsets. We ate breakfast each morning overlooking the infinity pool (shown in many travel magazines) and lunch outside on the upper terrace. It is definitely the place to unwind. Service is excellent and the "cave" cool and comfortable. I'm already looking forward to returning. However, with all the steps, it is probably not the place for children or the infirm.

Room Tip: We looked at several rooms and found them all charming. We did not stay in the big "Perivolas...
