“Lovely hotel with a great location”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

I had a thoroughly enjoyable stay in this hotel. I began my holiday with a free airport pick up which is always a nice touch. This is a family run hotel that has only been in operation since 2008 and as such everything feels new. I found the owners to be very friendly and helpful. All rooms have nice views. The pool area has really nice shaded areas with soft seats. There are plenty of sun loungers which are very comfortable and have thick padded covers. There is even a double hammock. The hotel is a 3-4 minute stroll from the famous sunset views and the main hub of activity including bars, restaurants and shops. The main bus station for the island is also only a 10 minute walk.

Stayed here with my daughter in June. We very much enjoyed our stay here! Rooms were perfect, pool lovely with great views, location ideal and Georgia even shared her homemade cheese with us!
Loved being able to walk to everything. Free pick up and drop off from port was a plus and made our trip stress free. Breakfast was lovely too. Run by a lovely hard working family. Would recommend for anyone.

Stayed for 3 nights in June and we had such a wonderful experience. Location is very convenient to us and its a walking distance to the main square and also the steps leading to the breath-taking terraces of Fira. The room we got was wonderful and close to the pool and the breakfast room. We had great time here with our 2 small children. Will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Get the room besides the breakfast room, very handy if you have kids.

Dream Island Hotel as other reviewers have suggested should be upgraded to a 4Star. The property is beautiful, not on the Caldera side but on the main strip of Fira. Sunset views are serene, the location has space, is calm away from the busy caldera yet just a walk down to the shopping, stores & restaurants. Transfers are complimentary which is a pleasure, the hotel is family run & they are the nicest people. We had the top floor room, lovely quaint room with a balcony, only problem I had was the drainage system in the bathroom which had an outlet on the floor causing abit of odour. Breakfast was average, not much of a variety but was sufficient. We asked for fried eggs the one morning & it was gladly made. Rooms were cleaned everyday, new towels & amenities supplied. The location is excellent & if you hiring a car there is plenty parking outside the hotel. The pool is large & plenty of seats all over to chill about after long days out 7 about in the sun. Tours can be booked straight from the hotel. Mini supermarkets, food courts & shopping all within walking distance. Overall our stay at Dream Island Hotel was fantastic!! Would definitely recommend staying here, its lovely & has a family feel to it. Don't be fooled by the 3 star rating!

My boyfriend and I are leaving tomorrow after a fabulous stay at this hotel! The photos don't do it justice. The pool is epic with amazing views of the east side of the island. Wouldn't be surprised if it is the biggest pool in fira!
Location is great, 3 min walk to the mazy backstreets of fira.
Breakfast is super tasty, may not be to everybody's taste but love the greek spinach pie option!
Lovely room & friendly staff! So good that they pick you up and drop you off at the airport/ ferry port!

Do NOT got past this hotel.....we searched the internet for literally hours looking for a hotel in Santorini (and yes there are many) and finally after 5 hours we said "book it".

They do airport transfers - so don't make the mistake that we did and book transfers as when we arrived there was Nikos from the hotel waiting for us, with a big sign and a big smile ....and oh so friendly and accommodating - so much so that we flagged the transfer that we booked and went with Niko.

What a great introduction to the hotel - but that was not to be outdone by the wonderful reception we received from Georgia and her lovely daughter Constantina - so friendly and helpful and PERFECT English....WOW what sort of place had we stumbled on????

Well, we were taken to our Villa Thira Family room and it was AMAZING....so typically Greek, so clean, so functional....so MEMORABLE.... but just to make sure that we were happy Georgia also took us to another family room to see which one we would prefer - How good is THAT....WHO gives that sort of service?????? DREAM ISLAND HOTEL DOES !!!!!

So we move to facilities....a FABULOUS pool, a SENSATIONAL buffet breakfast that is served in a cave ....literally.....and just eminates that Greek Island feel over and over again.

We made ONE mistake with this hotel and that was......WE DIDN'T BOOK IT FOR LONG ENOUGH !!!!!!

If you a looking for GREAT accommodation in Santorini,....please don't spend HOURS searching like we did....JUST BOOK THIS PLACE !!!!

Room Tip: We chose the Villa Thira which was a family room (as we had an 8 y/o son and OMG the layout and set...

Dream Island made our stay in Fira. I still can't get over how hospitable the family staff was. They went so far to let us borrow their converter when ours didn't work as well as call for all our travel arrangements we could have easily done ourselves. They clearly love what they do and that shows. Clean rooms, good food, nice pool.
