We stayed at Esperas for 5 nights in early September for our 25th anniversary. It is hard to add anything new to the positive comments which have been written by others. I would just emphasize a few points. First, like some others, I also debated the question of the Sunset view at Esperas versus the full Caldera view at other Oia and Fira hotels. In reality, the Esperas view is also stunning and we had plenty of opportunities to see the full caldera view when walking about OIa or hiking to Fira (yes - we did the 9 kilometer walk). On the other hand, being able to sit on our deck and see the sunset, without having to fight the crowds, was a very special treat. As some others have said, if you like privacy or quiet, your room selection can matter quite a bit, as some rooms near the entrance or the pool have more people walking right past you (and you can hear the poolside conversations). We had a suite which was perfect for us because it was further down the hillside and thus quite private. Finally, a hotel can be in a lovely location, but if the staff is not friendly, the overall experience can still suffer. I am happy to say that we found everyone at Esperas to be wonderfully friendly and helpful, which really was the icing on the cake. In the end, we really felt that we made the perfect choice on Santorini.
