“Book here and don't stress”
Reviewed 23 July 2013 via mobile

3 weeks on TA scrounging through review after review for places to stay while on our honeymoon. Arrived yesterday and paid the 18 euro for a pickup. Arrived and was greeted by both Filia and mixali (both speak perfect English - we are Greek Canadians so it didn't matter that much but thought to mention it for my TA friends who don't speak Greek). Junior/ydor suite is amazing. Cave - like room, white, with a mix of tradition and modern touch. Beds great. Ac/tv/room size /caldera view check check check and check. Beautiful patio right in front of your room to relax and view sunset (no need to drive to oia to see sunset as recommended by my friends). Bought a 7 euro bottle of local white wine at the local store which is 3 minutes away and watched the sunset from our terrace. Rented a car (55 euro including full insurance per day) and drive down to ammoudi bay to eat on our first night as recommended by mixali. Ate fresh grouper, local fava beans, kalamari, xoriatiki (village) salad, and litre of white - 103 euro. Expensive by Greek standards but in Canada $140 gets you the bare minimum at the keg :). Pool is small but most are here in santorini. We just used it for an hour while drinking champagne overlooking the view anyways. I don't know why this is only rated a 3.5 star

My advice = rent a car (not a gourouna/ 4 wheeler due to trickiness of roads, go to perivoli beach area to swim (black sand), bring a blow dryer since room doesn't have one, dont stress about this hotel and book stefani suites and continue to surf TA for your next island stop because this hotel and area is perfect. Vasili :). Ps. I'm Greek, born and live in canada and have a home in zakynthos where we visit every 2 years. I thought Zakinthos was the perfect island until I came to this paradise. Enjoy santorini paidia. I hope this review helped and I hope you aren't stressing like I was when I was searching TA for where to stay lol. Next stop = Naxos/Paros :). Reviews to come.

Young couple in Santorini for the first time. Stefanie suite locates in Firostefani, which is in my opinion, a better place to stay at than Fira (15 mins walk away). We stayed in the superior suite which was built inside a cave with a private balcony overlooking the sea and we enjoy a stunning caldera sunset view everyday. I believe the view is one of the main reasons for people to travel to Santorini and I think we were very lucky to have picked this hotel. The room itself is well equipped with good quality facilities (air conditioner, nespresso, coffee machine, TV, and VERY comfortable bed) and the owner, Michael, is very friendly and they try to meet your requirements as much as possible (You can even customise your breakfast and they deliver to your balcony every morning!)

The only thing that I would say is the internet is slightly slow in our room (works fine in the public area) and the price may be slightly over-budget for young couples but we think it definitely worth and made our stay luxurious and perfect!!

Our second time in santorini, our first time at Stefanie Suites. We had actually a great time.
The pluses:
. Privacy: we recommend the apartment suite with its private terrace. It is actually very difficult to find privacy in santorini while hotels offer rooms next to each others on the caldera.
. Location: firostefani is a great place to stay at only 10-15 minutes walk from busy and mainstream fira.
. Service: only 4 suites with Filia and Michael addressing all your requests: restaurant booking, yoga lesson, massage, etc
Minuses:
. None that really matters

Arriving in Stefani Suites, we immediately knew we had found our personal haven. An explosion of tastefulness greets you with meticulous attention to detail wherever you look, from the crisp white linens on the sumptuous bed in the Gaia Suite to the clean lines of the white crockery and the two coffee machines in the well designed kitchen area to the authentic style of the bathroom sympathetically equipped to give a luxurious modern feel. Delicious breakfasts served with style on our balcony far outshone any we have previously had in all our years of travelling, The magnificent views of the Aegean Sea and it's spectacular sunsets coupled with the helpfulness and friendliness of the owners and staff made this our most memorable holiday yet. We have no hesitation in recommending Stefani Suites to the discerning holidaymaker, we plan to return next year and once again experience the unique hospitality extended to us.

Myself and 5 friends have just returned from our stay in Stefani Suites in Firostefani. From the moment we arrived we absolutely fell in love with the place. The property consists of 4 suites (my husband and I had the junior suite, while our 4 friends stayed in the top suite which was huge), and is practically a brand new property with modern fixtures in both the kitchenette and bathrooms, Nespresso coffee machine and full wifi.

The view is sensational from the property. Each night we sat with a glass of wine or a Fix, some bread and cheese and watched the magnificent sunset over the Caldera. We did take a trip to Oia but all agreed the view from the balcony was just as spectacular.

Both Filia and Michael are so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. They organised quad bikes for us as well as a private yacht tour around the island. They also went out of their way when I was unwell, offering to be available 24 hours and allowed us to stay in the room well past check out time. This was much appreciated!

The hotel is about a 10 min walk from Fira, down about 76 steps. Some people may find this a slight struggle but if you check any of the hotels situated on the caldera you won't find this uncommon. Make sure you organise a transfer with Filia - makes things a lot easier. I looked at a load of properties before I chose Stefani Suites, having seen the location of many of the other ones while we were there I know for certain I had made the perfect choice.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for anyone visiting Santorini. I would go back in a heartbeat!

Stefani Suites was amazing; highly recommend staying there while in Santorini. The view from our balcony was beautiful and everyone was extremely helpful and welcoming. The location was great as well, easily walkable to the main town of Fira, but far enough away that you don't get the loud noise.

we spent a weekend at the hotel in September after a mix up with our booking at another hotel. And how lucky we were! brand new beautiful hotel with 4 suites, excellent view and setting and above all great hosts. Very friendly, eager to help you and give tips for the island, we felt like we were at home. We also enjoyed the breakfast served at our room with the caldera view. All in all we had a great time and we fully recommend it. thnk you Michael and Filia
