“The 'stunning' Chromata”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Just returned from 5 nights at this beautiful 'cave-like' accommodation in stunning Santorini! Our room (Junior Suite, number 18) was perfect! Inside was clean, large, including a lounge chair and dining area and the large outdoor patio, included two pool beds and a table and chairs. View was spectacular...and the infinity pool overlooking the Caldera was perfect! There is a cold and hot spa in two different locations within the complex. Staff were extremely attentive and nothing was too much trouble! They recommended fabulous restaurants, all very reasonable, so take their advice! We highly recommend all restaurants/tavernas we visited including Metaxi Mas, (a taxi ride to the village of Exo Gonia is required), Anogi, Nicholas and The Aegean all within walking distance. Be aware, as with most of the accommodation along this area, there are a lot of stairs!

Room Tip: Junior Suite, number 18, fabulous location!

We stayed at Chromata with my husband, for our wedding in May 2014.

The team at Chromata, especially Michalis and Tasos, worked hard to accommodate all our "crazy" needs (things can get wild over a wedding period). The staff was always friendly, nice and eager to help out. They booked taxis, mini vans, shuttles for us and our guests any time we called (finding taxis in Santorini can get really challenging). They expedited dry cleaning my wedding gown and my husband's suit before the wedding. The day of the wedding they were even able to get me a second mirror for the room I was getting ready in a matter of few minutes!

We stayed in the junior suite and booked the honeymoon suite for the wedding day as well. Both rooms were gorgeous, with amazing caldera (sea) views and hot tubs overlooking the volcano.
We had private patios in both rooms where we could order breakfast/lunch. The food by the way was amazing.

We are definitely coming back to Chromata in the future. We couldn't expect anything more from the hotel and the staff! The experience overall was excellent!

The team at Chromata worked very hard to ensure we enjoyed our stay. Mike the manager was so helpful, booking dinners, organizing rental car and being attentive whenever we needed.

We stayed in the jacuzzi room which, which we were up graded to. We dont enjoy jacuzzi's so that part was wasted on us. The views from every room are great, and waking up to have breakfast overlooking the caldera was lovely. I read the comments from the guest complaining about the humidity, and the island was humid last week, and our room was a little damp. We asked Mike to drain the jacuzzi, and that helped. No problems on the bathroom which was huge and had a very large shower. The property like most others on Santorini is overlooked and the rooms are close together but the design of the balconies does afford some privacy.

Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend Chromata.

Room Tip: Avoid the room next to the pool, if you dont want to listen to the pool music from breakfast onwards

My husband and I have been to Chromata in September 2013 and loved it. Part of the Small Luxury Hotel, the room was great, breakfeast at the room's balcony with an amazing view was breathtaking, as well as the pool view. But the highlight was the service! They booked restaurants (all great by the way!) car rental, and during the whole stay we have a cell phone to speak to the hotel and concierge from wherever we were! Alex, the concierge speaks portuguese and was very very helpful whenever we needed!!! Thank you so much for making this trip so special!

Room Tip: If you have trouble with stairs ask for a room close to the reception! Lots and lots of stairs!

Chromata should not be apart of the SLH. The hotel is good from far, but far from good. Our room was small, moist, smelly and damp. Complained on a few times, and staff kept suggesting the Island is humid. I have stayed in Santorini island before and stayed in various humid islands around the world. A good hotel would not have damp towels, and damp bed sheets. Also what 5 star hotel offers all in one shower gel and shampoo, with no hair conditioner was available. The bathroom was smaller than a jail cell, not to mention the shower was literally 6 ft tall. My husband had to slouch every time he took a shower. Worst experience ever, as I got sick from sleeping in a moist bed sheets. Besides the excellent views, this hotel was not worth it! There are many other SLH around the island that would be more suitable. Try Aressana Spa and Hotel and Suites, we literally spent our days at this hotel as it was in Fira and had an actual spa.

Room Tip: There is no fitness center and their massage room is not a spa! If you would like a real spa experie...

My husband and I visited the beautiful island of Santorini in April. It was the first time we came to Greece and specifically to Santorini. The staff at "Chromata" was very accommodating (especially Tasos and Michael). The hotel is the incredible with the most spectacular view and the room was really gorgeous. Thank you for everything and we hope to come back soon!

Went recently to this property, since we landed at night time and reached our rooms couldn't really make anything out regards our surrounding. But when we woke up was enthralled by the beautiful and post card perfect setting.

The check-in was prompt and swift. We were upgraded to a suite with jacuzzi tub from the Jnr. Suite, was a pleasant surprise.

The entire staff from the duty manager, guest relations lady, bartender, room service staff to the cleaning lady try making your trip truly memorable, comfortable and are extremely courteous. All in all full thumbs up.

Like most properties on the Cyclades this is a small boutique property with limited restaurant/ dining option. However they do make up with their warm accommodative nature.

Champagne breakfasts, leisurely whiling away time at the infinity pool loungers and soaking in the sun make a ideally relaxed vacation.

Our rooms no. 14 and 15 had a superb view of the Aegean Sea and the black volcano (Atleast 1000ft/350 Meters from sea level). You shall be truly mesmerized by the continuos changing shades of the azure blue sea. Note though all rooms are set on the steep slopes of the

The rooms which were allocated to us were by far the biggest in terms of space during our entire length of stay in Greece since we had opted for suites at both Grace, Mykonos and Melia, Athens. Simplistic functional and as Santorini is well know for white deco .

Town of Fira is a 15-20 mins walk along the coastline and Oia is appox. 20 mins by car.
