“Romantic Trip”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

The property was exactly as it was portrayed in the advertisement. The staff was extremely helpful and wonderful. Wished the breakfast was better and that the pool was not sooooo cold (end of August). Loved it!

One of the best hotels we have ever stayed at! Hassna had the most perfect recommendations for everyday and helped make our honeymoon absolutely wonderful!! Loved that it was walking distance into Oia, the breakfast was delicious and the sunsets were unreal!

Phenomenal. The only thing better than the sunset is the service... And the cave pools... And the DVD collection... And the texts reception sends to confirm your dinner reservation. And the bfast spread that includes gogi berries... And the way Hassna looks up the boat you think you're on to let you know the schedule has changed and that it will be running late as usual, since she just checked on its arrival at an earlier port and did the math--without you even asking for that level of detailed information! Aside from that, the sunset is THE BEST!

Room Tip: even the small room we had felt large, due to the placement of its windows.

I stayed with my husband at Esperas Hotel in August 2013. The hotel is located in the best place to see the sunset. Althought it is not a luxury hotel it is very confortable and well kept. THe room amenities are very good! And the hotel staff was very helpfull to meet all our needs, such as restaurants reservations. The only cons in our opinion were (1) our room was far away from the reception so we had to climb hundreds of steps to go in and out of the hotel, (2) the wifi didn't work inside the bedroom, (3) the pool water was too cold for us (please, consider that we live in the Northest area of Brazil where the is always summer and the sea and pool water are always very warm).
I would definetely stay there again, but I would ask for a room up next to the reception.

Room Tip: Ask for a room next to the reception so you won't have to climb all those steps.

Thank you for your review and your positive comments of our hotel. You are correct in saying that Esperas is not a luxury hotel because as you know we are a four star hotel.On the other hand, Esperas is probably the only four star hotel in Santorini offering luxury amenities (Apivita natural bath products and all natural coco-mat mattresses), twice daily maid service, concierge services and a free up-to-date DVD collection. Unfortunately we are also not as close to the equator as your city so as to have warmer water temperature all the time!

Friendly staff who would always go the extra mile, we were extremely impressed by the gentleman who takes the bags up and down the steep stairs for the guests.
Breakfast was lovely, you can enjoy it outside looking at the view.
Room or "cave" in the cliff was fantastic. Each one is different but we had a cute 2 story studio with a private balcony.
Highly recommend a visit, we were only there 3nights and wished we had longer.
We had a 5am start this morning when we left, the staff kindly had breakfast in the fridge the night before and the gentleman was there to help us with our bags!

The configuration of this place is crazy - rooms hug the cliff and steep steps make just getting to your room an adventure. The reward is fabulous views, private terraces and charm that you couldn't recreate anywhere else if you tried. Rooms are smallish but you won't care - less is more here. Great staff.

Room Tip: Room 114 is a wonderful duplex with 2 terraces and kitchen

We stayed here for our honeymoon. The staff was awesome - they did whatever they could to help. It was very homey in that the staff helped with everything without being over the top. The view is literally picture perfect. I would wish to come back every year. The best place I ever stayed at.
