“Wonderful family run "villa hotel"”
Reviewed 13 October 2008

You cant call this a hotel... hotels are cold and unwelcoming. This is a little villa to call your own! Georgia and her husband have you picked up at the airport and settled in before you know it. Their daughter Constadina is a constant help and so sweet. We stayed for a week this September and loved every minute of it. The "hotel" was just completed a few months ago so everything is brand new. The pictures on their webite are exactly what you will find... an oasis in the midst of Fira, close to it all but tucked away on its own. The only thing the pictures are missing are the white cushion covers that are on all of the chaise lounges that surround the pool, and hammocks and outdoor couches that welcome you outside at any time of day... or night . If youre looking for gourmet breakfasts and traditional hotel atmosphere then this may not be the place for you... but then this island might not be the place for you! Breakfast is included in the stay and is in a cool welcoming location with couches and tables... greek yogurt with honey and traditional english/american breakfast fare are served for hours buffet style.

The rooms have their own mini-refrigerator so stock up on wine and champagne at duty-free. Theres also a safe in the room for your belongings. The bathrooms are modern and eclectic but still soothing, and the water pressure was great with both a rain shower head and a hand held head.

The island hardly ever sees any rain so you can be assured of mostly sunshine... and though this hotel doesnt face the sunset there is always the beautiful sunrise.

The lobby area has access to two separate computers for hotel guests which is great if you need to keep in touch at home, and there is also a bar in the lobby for when you dont feel like the night life, or when theres a need for beer poolside on a hot day.

Fira itself is a late night locale and only steps away so theres no need to rush your days to shower and get an early dinner... relax! Santorini is beautiful... And so is this villa hotel!

Just returned from Santorini, which we visited for our honeymoon. We stayed at this lovely hotel for 5 nights and we were very satisfied by our choice and the service we had there.
The hotel is situated in a very quiet place, about 300 metres easy walk from the central square of Fira and is facing the east coast of the island, which means that you may see the sunrise and not the sunset. But the caldera path is not far away and the hotel location is easily accessible - a plus for people who don't like climbing and walking to reach their room.
We were picked from (and delivered to) the airport by the very kind and helpful hotel owners and our room -suite to be more precise- was very clean and nicely decorated and equipped: a nice bedroom with a king sized double bed, a lounge room, a private balcony with chairs and umbrella, a bathroom with a water massage system, a hair drier, towels etc, 2 LCD TVs, candles all over the place and was very very quiet!
The hotel also has a well-sized water pool, internet access, adequate breakfast and reasonable prices!
So if you search for a quiet, clean, friendly, easily accessible and reasonably priced hotel to stay in Fira, the Dream Island Hotel should be your first choice.

The hotel is lovely, with an excellent breakfast included (for europe standards). The pool area is gorgeous, the location excellent and the rooms are quite sufficient. The major drawcard of this hotel are the owners. So friendly and generous, picking us up on arrival at the ferry port and dropping us off at the airport on departure. Would definately recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Santorini, and would definately stay there again on our next visit.

  • Liked — The friendly atmosphere, and the location.
