“Great stay”

Amazing location - great sunset views every night from our balcony. Very friendly hotel staff - great service overall. Excellent location in Oia - can easily walk to restaurants / town. Nice pool area. We would stay here again!

We stayed here as part of a kayaking tour. We stayed two nights and the location was terrific for a walk though the quaint shops or to walk to view the sunsets. Our room was actually used as a honeymoon suite. It had a jacuzzi and there were two bedrooms, two baths and a beautiful living area. The view of the ocean was breathtaking. Others in our group also raved about their rooms though the room configuration vary a great deal.

Thank you for your wonderful review and positive comments. It is indeed true that none of our rooms are alike since most of them were dug into the rockface decades ago and have been upgraded since for the 21st century.

You must stay at Esperas, put this on your bucket list. The most idyllic location on the island situated within nice walking distance to Oia shopping with views to die for.
This is best place to stay to watch the most romantic sunsets on your balcony with a glass of wine.
We can't thank George and the staff for a wonderful stay, they all treat you like family and cannot do enough for you.
It doesn't matter which room you stay in, they all have equally a sensational view.
Thank you so much.

HI all,
Without any hesitation...book! Esperas is not only that perfect place that you see in magazines, it is the people, that community that you are looking for if something happen to you. Beside loving our room with view on the ocean, the private terrace, the lovely breakfast included, the location and the restaurant, the people, the people..
My husband and I rented a scooter to go around the island. We got into an accident and were airlifted to Crete's hospital. Georges, our host and all the staff were soooo great! Georges came to the hospital, they even offered to reimbursed us the 3 nights that we were not using. They also reimburse the night that our dear friends did not stay because they came with us to Crete. If you are not just looking for an hotel to stay but for a home, Esperas is your place, discrete but always there to help out...amazing you guys..thank you so much! I still get emails from them to see how my husband is...love you all..

Room Tip: Some terrace are more private than others, ours had no neighbors to the left and was a bit tucked aw...

We loved Esperas. The view was second to none, and the service was top notch. The rooms were large and very comfortable. Sitting on the patio was like staring at a post card. You're going to pay a premium to look over the caldera, and have a private view of the sunset, but all in all, I felt that Esperas was priced reasonably for the once in a lifetime views it offered.

We recently spent four nights at Esperas on Santorini. Our stay was perfect in every way. The house was comfortable and cozy with a patio overlooking the sea and the amazing sunsets.
The staff, from reception to house maid were friendly and helpful. We booked two day trips recommended by staff at the front desk and we were thrilled with each of them. We are still talking about the wine tour and what we learned. Our private time on George's boat truly gave us the experience of Santorini we were looking for. It was a magical week. We recommend a stay at Esperas with great enthusiasm. One item to keep in mind is that this property is build on the side of the cliff so I would not say suitable for small children.

Excellent location, top service and amazing George the Owner so nice and prepared for any single advice or information.
Close to the small port where we can hire vessels for a volcano tour and/or hava a nice seafood dinner.
We definitely will come back and recommend to our friends!

Room Tip: For Seniors, prefer room next to the reception.
