Amerisa Suites
Ranked #68 of 81 Hotels in Fira
Reviewed 5 August 2012

First up, a warning: George, the owner, used to be a professional racing driver, and so the trip down to the port to catch your ferry will a white knuckle ride. But it is a complimentary trip - you'll be picked up and dropped off as part of your stay. And it's a good spot to stay. It's not on the caldera side of Fira, but it's a two minute walk from the centre of Fira, and its restaurants, shops, and arresting views. The hotel has its own views across the east of the island, which are breathtaking at sunrise if you can rouse yourself at dawn. George and his team look after you well; breakfast is simple, and WiFi is haphazard, but the welcome is warm, and tourist information always at hand. Small swimming pool, large rooms with private balconies (the upstairs suites are particularly spacious), and an easy location to get in and out of (hiring a car is highly recommended to get around the island). Avoid Lithos, no matter how much it's punted by the hotel - worst restaurant I've been to in Greece - but otherwise very happy tourists with no complaints.

Room Tip: The upstairs suites have the best views, and lead out onto the pool deck.

We discovered this hotel when searching for an overnight get away to Santorini. George and his wife were so helpful in every way - directions (since we don't speak Greek), guidance in what to see during our short stay and recommendations for a most memorable sunset dinner overlooking the caldera.

The room was lovely and the amenities perfect. Breakfast was delicious and enjoying a great cup of coffee overlooking the sea was amazing. The hotel was in a perfect location and just the right size for anyone wanting to experience Greek hospitality.

we will definitely be returning to Santorini and can't imagine not spending that time staying at this Greek gem!

We stayed at the Amerisa Suites in May, 2012. George, the host, went out of his way to make us comfortable. Even drove us to the trail head to walk to Ia (a must for any traveller). Amerisa is clean and cozy with lovely, private patios looking out onto the sea. The breakfasts were very good and the setting of the dining area was perfect on the patio rooftop. It's a 5 minute walk to town and be prepared for some uphill climbs but you get to see a little of the local homes. The price is right, too, since you're away from the busy, touristy side of Fira.
I would recommend Amerisa Suites.

we really enjoyed our stay here. Coming from Vancouver, Canada I woke up at 4:30am and could not get back to sleep due to the jet lag. The hotel faces east so for 3 days I saw 3 incredible sun rises. And in the evening my wife and I walked about 15 minutes up the hill to Fira town center and watched beautiful sun sets. The breakfast is excellent; top floor and we would look out over the ocean. Afterwards we would move to the patio to finish breakfast sipping coffee. Breakfast took us 1 1/2 hours. It was our first time to Santorini and we would suggest you stay in Fira. We walked to the bus station(15 minutes) and picked the town, site, or beach we wanted to go to. The owner treated us really nice and included some very nice surprises. When we go back we will stay at Amerisa Suites again. Great price, great location, great people.

We had a great time at Amerisa. George is just amazing, his hospitality is out of this world. He takes every effort to make you comfortable. He will guide you, drop/pick up from airport, he goes out of his way to make his guests comfortable. We had a late evening flight out of Santorini, he let us keep the room till 6 pm, without even asking us for a additional penny. His restaurant recommendations were also great.

We had an awesome experience at the Amerisa Suites. I was amazed how humble, and kind the owner was. To begin with we had to originally cancel our reservations with another hotel due to the strikes in Athens. I was not sure what to encounter when we decided to book with Amerisa Suites. It was the best choice ever. From beginning to end we were pleasantly surprised. The room was super clean, lovely view of the ocean. It is true is not The Caldera so what you walk like five minutes, and you can take all the pictures that you want. I still enjoyed the beautiful ocean view. Continental breakfast- Every day was something different plus Nicolas was very efficient and friendly. Would we stay again? Absolutely! Loved everything about it. Thank you George for making this a wonderful experience for us.
