We just returned from a three week vacation to Greece. We had the hardest time trying to pick a hotel in Santorini (Perivolas,Katikies,Kirini). This has always been a dream destination for us & wanted to stay at the perfect hotel. We emailed Perivolas with some questions when we were first researching hotels. Kelly from Perivolas was so quick to respond & more than happy to answer any questions we had. We were so impressed by Kelly & her service that we decided on Perivolas. It turned out to be the right one. This place is truly special!!!!!
When we very first stepped on the grounds at Perivolas, WOW!!! Our jaws dropped, the grounds & views are simply breathtaking. The hotel area was nicely landscaped & the view was remarkable at any spot. It did not feel like a hotel but more like a little village w/ little homes. We stayed in a Suite w/ a private Jacuzzi. The décor of the room was simple yet modern. The views from our room & terrace were just glorious.
The pool is spectacular. You can very easily lose track of your day sitting by the pool staring out to the caldera. The staff who worked there were extremely polite and always available if you needed anything. They would come around with complimentary cherries, grapes & iced tea around the pool area daily.
Complimentary breakfast was served daily in an area around the pool with a selection of fruits, juices, meats, cheeses, pastries, breads, cereals, yogurt, etc., and they would also cook omelet’s and other hot breakfast items to order. You could also order breakfast to be room serviced. The lunch & dinner menu is also very good if you want to dine at Perivolas. The sunsets are magnificent from the hotel.
Although Perivolas is in Oia, it is not right in town. This is actually nice b/c you are away from the road and the hustle and bustle of tourists. It’s just a ten minute walk which we quite enjoyed.
Yes, there was not much closet space & yes, the bathroom is a stereotypical European bathroom. But the simplicity of it all actually contributes to the ambiance.
If you are looking for a large resort with lots of action, this is not the place for you. This hotel is the exact opposite, its absolute peace and tranquility. Everyone spoke in whispers...as if not to disturb the natural beauty and serenity.
Truly a magical place!!! Would return in heartbeat.
