“Perfect location and lovely all around”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for 5 days in the middle of August and we loved the place. The location could not possibly be better. Overlooking the caldera and Ammoudi Bay, Esperas is a short walk to the super quaint and charming area where all the shops,cafes and restos are. The pool is great and so was the food at their restaurant. The patio and veranda in our room had the most spectacular view of the famous Oia sunset. I found the room to be very cute and clean although the bed was small (only a double) and the pillows were a little hard. I would
Most definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family.

We arrived in the pre-booked transfer and our bags were taken to the hotel.... the staff allotted us a beautiful room with a fantastic view!!

The only thing as a recommendation to the hotel is to send ur guests to the airport at least 3 hrs in advance...cause the airport is in utter chaos!!!

Thank you for the sterling endorsement of our hotel and words of caution to future travelers by Santorini airport. As you know firsthand, we make sure all our guests leave Esperas with plenty of time to reach the airport or port in order to avoid even the possibility of stress.

My husband and I recently travelled to Greece for our honeymoon and stayed at Esperas during our time in Santorini. The views from the rooms, which are very clean and spacious, are absolutely breathtaking. We had a perfect sunset view from our private balcony. The staff was extremely attentive, but not intrusive at all. I could not recommend Esperas more highly. If you are planning a trip to Oia, you must stay there.

We stayed at Esperas for one night only but we had a great experience. It was very easy to arrange for transportation from the airport to the hotel. Then when we arrived, the bellman carried our luggage for us. You MUST arrange this...it's down a cliff and winding, rocky stairs. The bellman was a strong, Greek, godsend. :) He lifted our bags on both of his shoulders...it was amazing. Our room was a suite that had a private terrace and a sunset view. It was very clean and came with nice amenities. We were very lucky to have a private terrace that faced the sunset. People were standing high above the hotel on the cliffs, in order to have the sunset view. So it was nice to sit on our terrace with a bottle of wine and just relax. The hotel itself has a nice pool, good continental breakfast and is about a 5 minute walk from the main street of Oia. I would definitely stay here again if I was in Santorini.

Room Tip: ask for a room that has a sunset view from your terrace.

I actually stayed the end of August but that is not an option. I can't say enough about this place that has not already been said. this place is absolutely the greatest place on earth. Its everything you imagine it would be an much more. My only regret is that we didnt stay longer. I can not wait to go back again! It is a must and no other trip you do will ever compare! Enjoy and happy travels to you!!!!

Clean rooms, excellent staff, breathtaking views of the water and sunset. We had an absolutely wonderful time. I couldn't recommend more highly. The pool is amazing and the food at the hotel was delicious. The hotel is in a great location to get down to Ammoundi Bay where there are many wonderful restaurants right on the water. I wish I could stay there for a month!

Just returned back to Chicago after a month in Greece. The clear highlight of our trip was our visit to Santorini. We stayed at a lovely hotel in Oia called Esperas and it was truly wonderful. The location does not get any better, the facilities were impeccable and the staff was second to none. My wife and I have been to Greece on several occasion as we are both of Greek descent. Esperas truly captured the best of Greek hospitality and the warmth of its culture and architecture. You felt like you were in a traditional Greek home with the simple design of the property but the modern amenities and food rivaled western resorts. The views were simply breathtaking and well worth the LONG run of stairs to get there. The staff was wonderful; polite, attentive and accommodating without being invasive. Truly a wonderful place - a must see on your next trip.

Room Tip: From what we saw, all the rooms were great. we stayed in 106 and the Jacuzzi and patio area were exc...
