“Esperas santorini”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2014

Unparalleled uniquely beautiful hotel and staff. Very comfortable rooms, firm beds, stunningly georgeous view (with the famous sunset). Staff were exceptionally courteous and made every effort to be most helpful without being intrusive.

Room Tip: Been twice - only good rooms

excellent hotel, we were in a traditional cave house, room 116, a little farther down so few people walking by the terrace from where you have a beautiful sunset view. very spacious for 4 of us with one master bedroom and one with 2 twin beds, each with their own bath. excellent breakfast of your choosing brought to you which we ate on the terrace. service was great and helpful. we would go back there. the hotel rooms are scattered down the cliff so there is some climbing of steps which was fine for us but would be difficult if not in shape. restaurant was small and food was ok but service was great and view was spectacular.

Room Tip: room 116 was excellent, a little farther down so few people walking by the porch from where you have...

I'll keep this short and sweet, our stay at Esperas was absolutely amazing and totally blew me away in every aspect. We stayed there in peak season hence my less than perfect score in terms of value but regardless it was a very special stay. That view! The staff and food and service was fantastic making it not only the best hotel I've stayed in in Europe but anywhere in the world.

The staff at Esperas takes their responsibility seriously and go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. They make everything very easy, all the way from from airport pickup, to hotel stay, excursions planning, car rentals, drop-off etc. The rooms are great, excellent location and incredible views. Would highly recommend this place.

First off, the staff was excellent and helpful and immediately made me feel at home, they took care of everything. Second, amazing location for the famous sunset, which you can view from the pool or private balcony off the rooms. Sits above a bay and the well known stairs down to the boats. Absolutely fantastic and affordable!

We travelled with two children and got a two bedroom suite, 2 baths a with jacuzzi. It's like an apartment. The hotel staff was very polite and helpful. Very clean and well maintained. Offered unrestricted view of sunset. Breakfast served at your requested time promptly. Just be prepared to climb 108 stairs to go out of hotel. It is then further 10 minutes walk to the main street of Oia. That was the only drawback of our stay. The hotel staff helped us with our luggage upon arrival and departure with a perfect smile even though so many stairs needed to be covered. The pics on their website is exactly how it looks. I'm giving it a four start due to difficult location and choice of menu in their restaurant.

Thank you for your kind review and words of praise for our hotel. The amount of steps (although true) are a characteristic of Santorini and not of Esperas in particular. Most of our guests prefer our location to being in the heart of Oia where hordes of tourists and cruise-ship visitors cram over your head to look into the balconies of those hotels. Moreover, none of those hotels offer views of the sunset (only the caldera), nor are they in the same (down-to-earth) price range as Esperas. Our restaurant offers a completely different card for lunch and for dinner. Our lunch menu caters more to people eating by the pool in their bathing suits (which is always the case with our guests), while our dinner menu offers an enticing alternative to going out to dinner in Oia.
