Hotel was exceptional and the service was top notch. Food was excellent. After an International Convention In Athens we wanted to experience Santorini and we were pleased with the comfort and location and history of this establishment. The staff made us feel very welcomed.

Santorini is an amazing island and Aigialos Hotel is unique and beautiful - it made our stay truly unforgettable that we plan to return. The staff at Aigialos ,Madonna,Evita, Georgia,Vivi,Apostolis and co ,were so welcoming and helpful, made our Santorini holiday more special. The Tramountana Honeymoon suite was fabulous in that it offered the experience of what it is like to live in Santorini and enjoy the spectacular views of the caldera. Aigailos Hotel is at the edge of Fira, so you are in walking distance to a huge selection of restaurants and shops! Breakfast on your own private balcony was special as were the sunsets! Our thanks to all at Aigialos!

Room Tip: recommend the views of the caldera

The hotel is simply perfect, its authenticity is charming. We fell in love with it, and the view from our room is breathtaking. Our day's highlight was enjoying the delicious lovingly prepared breakfast on that amazing balcony. The most important aspect of Aigialos was its staff, they are all amazingggg, we immediately felt like a family, very helpful, resourceful, and loving. i want to thank Aigialios team for making our trip perfect and i want to thank especially Madona our receptionist and new best friend.

My wife and I booked two nights in Fira on our anniversary trip to Mykonos at the suggestion of friends and family who had been there. I found the Aigialos Hotel through tripadvisor and am truly glad I did. Simply one of the great travel experiences of our life thanks to the location, atmosphere, food and exceptional staff. Madonna, Georgia, Adonis, Vivi...everyone we met took great care of us and assisted with the most spectacular anniversary dinner on our balcony overlooking the caldera. Friends can't believe the pictures, like something from a magazine. I think I gained 5 pounds in less than three days thanks to Georgia's planned breakfasts and our dinner. We have stayed at many top hotels...but none more memorable than this 15 room gem at the edge of Fira. I will miss it until we return.

Just back from a stay at Aigialos last week and we were very pleased .

Saw where other people were disappointed with the pool and their rooms but at Sorokos, all was well.
Yes, the pool is tiny but we weren't there to lounge around and if you have privacy issues, don't stay in Thira.
Most properties are terraced and next to each other so people at hotels next door can look into your room.
That was easy for us to solve by closing the shades and turning on the AC.
If you are facing the caldera you will have to close your shades anyhow before the sun actually sets. In June, the sun burns directly into your room late afternoon.
We had a private terrace which was fantastic,MEMORABLE, but if you sit there, make sure you wear a strong sunscreen.
For those who are sun worshipers this is the spot for you.
You can overdose on it :-)
The sun in Santorini is the strongest we have ever felt and we have been all over the world.
At breakfast Giorgia took wonderful care of us and if you want to stay in for dinner she will oversee that too.
This is a quiet place if you are a light sleeper.

Room Tip: If you are three people stay in Zefiros room, it has two private balconies.

Spent 3 nights at Aigialos in Santorini with my wife and was very pleased. The views from the room and property are spectacular overlooking the bay, caldera, Fira, and the entire coast. The location is great at the southern end of Fira. Walking distance to all of Fira shops and restaurants. Could not be more convenient.
The staff, Madonna in particular, are outstanding. They arranged upon request everything from airport and ferry transfers, to wine-tasting tours, to restaurant recommendations and reservations, to catamaran dinner sailing, and taxis. Perhaps the best service we've ever experienced.
Breakfast, included in the package, was outstanding - daily fresh fruit, omelets, coffee, juice and fresh baked breads and croissants.
The room itself was just okay. It was clean and pretty much as advertised but not more. We had requested a king but ended up with two twins pushed together. Would recommend something higher than the main level though as we were woken up a couple of times by early morning activity after leaving the windows open for the cool evening breezes.
Aigialos is perfect if you are looking for a place to base a Santorini visit. Located in a great spot with great breakfast and spectacular views. The donkeys shuttling back and forth at the start and end of the day are charming. Great access to all of the island with wonderful staff to help. Not a resort though - tiny pool and little to do on premises.

Room Tip: Pick something higher than the main level.

We just got back from staying at the Maestros suite at Aigialos for 3 nights with our 2 boys and had the most wonderful time. Our private balcony was magical with the best views in Santorini. The place was very charming, clean and the staff were all super helpful and quick. They also had the best food!
Thank you for such a great experience and because of that we will be back!! Madonna was our main lady and she was amazing!
Sincerely
Narimane Panayotou
