Back actually in 2011, our group from a yoga center in the U. S. arrived via Athens and a small plane to Santorini, where we were picked up at the tiny airport and driven to our destination hotel, Pelagos. We each had to ourselves, or some shared, our own, white stucco cottage along the garden walk, within eye sight of the beautiful lap pool,(no spa to speak of, the pool was more than one needed in this location; plus the management could arrange or advise spas or private massage therapists or manicurists, who could either to come to you or they would take us to them!) our grape-arbor covered yoga morning practice spot, with an unbelievably surreal backdrop of a mountain with a Greek Orthodox blue domed church behind us! It plus a bit of jet-lag made it all surreal, it was too beautiful to take it all in. Sunflowers lined the garden which made for a wonderful spot both to meditate and practice, or to have our awesome coffee and breakfast by to gaze at. It was immaculate. Whatever was growing in the garden that morning at 7 a.m. and hand picked by our wonderful host and his son always at the kitchen as well, would be on our menu for dinner or lunch that day. I loved eggplant, stuffed squash blooms, there were always fresh strawberries to pluck or tomatoes along side. A beautiful homemade apricot jam was a highlight every morning, with breads and everything you could want. I felt totally at home, yet it was care-free so we could focus on our retreat and also take in the sites nearby. "Our" family, because that is how I felt, was so attentive and since they ran a boutique but rustic place, we had everything we needed and then some. To walk a bit, there were roads of dirt and gravel, as the ocean was yards away. The mountain behind us had caves of tales untold along the trail to the top where the church stood. The town, Oia, was always attainable and arranged if you wanted a ride, only 10 minutes or so down the road; cruise ships would also visit this island of Santorini so timing driving around through the countryside and guiding ourselves along to beaches, away from a lot of people or with, it all was great. There is enough land area sea-side to never even see a huge ship if you chose not to! I was so sad to hear of a tourist falling through the active excavation site of an ancient city, and we also were disappointed to learn it had been closed to the public ever since. We found the museum to be incredibly full of artifacts, though, as they had been carefully removed and are revered. I saw so many things, from early-dated (post-volcanic eruption,date? not sure! Then an earthquake destroyed this particular city) arrow and weapon designs along side exquisite murals, pieces of pottery, saved in the ruins that had once been alive and very progressive and wealthy. There was a great model of how the town must have been laid out, and it was mesmerizing to see early Greek life on a volcanic island. The mystical story of Atlantis thought to be located here, around the volcanic eruption site thousands of years ago, even before the downfall of this particular town being excavated I imagine still, added to the wonder of this different and exotic land. We did not mind too much that the only ATM in town was right as we entered it, before entering the city proper! Careful of driving, as there are many mopeds and small cars zipping at break-neck speeds as you round corners! I miss our friends running Pelagos; we got to know them, they put up with our lack of knowledge of the Greek language, we always found a way to talk! I would like to see more of the islands, but it would be really hard to top a hotel like Pelagos anywhere.

We were staying in a guesthouse down the coast by about 1/2 mile and our hostesses suggested we use Pelagos' pool and Internet. Well we spent just about every meal and most days at the Pelagos' pool! The owner, his son and staff were so friendly, it felt like we belonged there ;) The food was excellent, in fact I have tried to make one of the dishes we had, twice! They grow most of their own food and when we told them we would be there for dinner and bringing friends, they made a special trip to get the fish I had enjoyed a few nights before. I can't say enough good things about this magical place. We'll be staying here next time.

You can eat very delicious handmade Breakfast.
(We thought all the Jam was hand made. I think yogurt is one of the best in the world.)
Very friendly staffs.
Rooms and swimming pools are VERY beautiful.
I really hope to upload the pictures(it's really beautiful) but my wife doesn't want to.
It's little bit expensive. But it's worth the price.

Stayed here for 9 days in September and couldn't rate it highly enough. The rooms were clean, the pool area was relaxing and the staff were very friendly. The food was amazing and lots of the vegetables were grown in the garden & picked fresh that day which made it even more special. You were close enough to OIA to go and experience the atmosphere & the lovely restaurants but far enough away to escape the hustle & bustle and really be able to relax & unwind. Cannot rate this hotel highly enough would recommend to anyone.

Our stay at Pelagos was wonderful! Nice hotel, friendly staff and good food! We would return anytime if we go back to Santorini. Nicely located with a lot of parking! Thank you very much! You can walk to the beach from this hotel, about 200 m on the right of the main road but you need a car or another mean of transportation to get to the hotel

Thank you to Antonis, Pericles and all at Pelagos for four nights in September.

Great rooms, all separate. Our room with a mezzanine bed. Pool was lovely. The whole place very relaxing. It is more remote than staying in one of the towns. We rented a quad bike for 30 euros a day and could easily get around the island, thanks to the hotel for arranging.

Excellent food for all meals.

Thoroughly recommended.

Just returned from a week's stay. My girlfriend and I had been recommended to stay here and we weren't disappointed. It was peaceful and relaxing and we were happy not to move very far for the first two days. The hotel had a barbecue evening with live entertainment and this proved a bonus as was so enjoyable with lovely food. We didn't bother hiring a car and took taxis into Oia which cost about 10 euros and Antonis kindly drove us in on one occasion. We both adored Oia. The shops are so individual and if you enjoy fashion and artwork you'll be spoilt. Oia is breathtakingly beautiful and is so romantic. We ran into a Japanese bride and groom, then on our last evening chatted to a couple who'd just got engaged. Our room was kept very clean with fresh towels every day. The swimming pool is large with a smaller one for children. There were always daily "specials" on the menu and was lovely to see the ingredients being picked in the morning. Antonis and Pericles were both so friendly and will help you plan your stay. We had sunset trip on the catamaran which can recommend. Have already recommended to our friends and didn't want to come home!

Room Tip: Room 1 is near pool and bar/eating area (sleeps up to 4)
