It was an amazing experience and the workers reallly got to know us and serve us. Everything was beautiful. We got to also ride the Carpe Diem for the day which was magical and I highly recommend it for everyone.

We stayed at the Honeymoon Petra from 30th July to 6th August 2013 for our 5th Wedding Anniversary. From the moment we arrived to the time we left the staff were fantastic and couldn't do enough for us, they made us feel very special. They are a credit to the owner Yannis. The views were unbelievable and the sunsets have to be seen to be believed. The rooms are wonderful, we stayed in the Traditional suites and although not as modern as the Petra Wing we found them to be spacious and clean with a good sized balcony and great views over Thira and the Volcano. The choice of fresh food at breakfast couldn't be faulted and made a great start to the day. We went on a catamaran trip arranged by the hotel which owned the Capre Diem. It was the highlight of our stay, we met some lovely people, the food was delicious and the staff as great as those in the hotel. Santorini is the most beautiful place we have been to, there is something about the place and people that can't be put into words. Would we go back - yes with out a doubt we just need to start saving.

Our stay at Honeymoon Petra was just amazing. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left we were made to feel very special. The staff could not do enough for us but it was all done in a very lovely way. All of the staff were just delightful and if I owned an hotel I would head hunt them all!

The food at the hotel was excellent and competitively priced. In fact wherever you chose to eat...you will eat well.

We stayed in room 10 and absolutely loved it. The air conditioning was great but we didn't need to use it all the time as the room is built into the rock. The shower was lovely and very modern. The bed was huge and incredibly comfortable.

We hired a car for 2 days which the receptionist organised for us. The hotel has private parking for guests. Everything is so easy!

No expense has been spared on this hotel (including using dynamite to blow a hole big enough for the pool!) and the owner Yanni and all of his staff are quite rightly very proud of this wonderful special place. Speaking of Yanni....we are still waiting for that book you are going to write ;)

A huge thank you to you all for making our stay so very magical.

We will be back...perhaps next time to get married :)

Tip for the ladies...make sure you take comfortable footwear. There are lots of steps and uneven cobbles all over the island. If you take a pair of high heels...stay at the hotel bar!

We have just returned from Honeymoon Petra in Santorini. The hotel is definitely one of the best we have ever been. Everything to smallest detail was perfect, and I really mean it. The girls (Olga, Evie) at reception are friendly and helpful. The view has took our breath away, they have the best 360 view, on Oia and Fira and of course caldera. That was one of the few hotels which was accepting kids, surrounding were quite safe for small children. We stayed in Honeymoon suite and it was HUGE! One room for kids, dining room, master bedroom with jacuzzi, and shower, please see pics. The room was recently renovated with high quality materials - natural stone hand sink, mosaics in bathroom, massage shower... The suite is located near reception, very quiet and with amazing view. But bit far from pool. If you don't mind walking, that will be just perfect. Only one thing to mention, wifi doesn't work well in this area. So had no wifi in our room. The place where was the Honeymoon Suite is featured on every Santorini postcard, no joke, so don't forget your camera!....For the breakfast we had a great choice, fresh juices, local organic products. If you have kids it is the best place to stay in Santorini - the pool is the biggest on the cliff...Also they have their own sailing center, so we took the caldera sunset cruise and also we rented Santa Maria Yacht. The food is great and whole experience was perfect.

Room Tip: All rooms are great, the hotel had total renovation recently. We stayed in Honeymoon traditional sui...

If you are going to Santorini, stay here! The Honeymoon Petra Villas are every bit as amazing as they look in the pictures...probably more. The location was perfect; close enough to Fira to walk in every day if you want, but far enough away to feel separated from the hustle and bustle. The views were magnificent, and the staff went out of their way to make us feel looked after in every way possible. By the end of the week, we were almost as sad to leave them as we were the island! The owner was often present, greeting us each morning and evening and making sure we were enjoying every minute of our stay. The breakfast buffet had a good variety of food; i was there with my three teenagers and they were all able to find foods that they liked (not always an easy task!). The daytime menu was equally satisfying. For my family, the best part of the hotel was the pool. It was larger and deeper than the other pools we saw on the island, with breathtaking views. We spent a good part of each day relaxing by the pool (and swimming of course), and enjoyed the late afternoons and evenings exploring Fira, Oia, and other parts of the island. Staff in the main office were always ready and willing to give suggestions for excursions, book taxis, recommend restaurants, etc. Overall, we had amazing experience at Honeymoon Petra Villas and would happily return in the future.

Just back from a fantastic holiday in Santorini. Still an island that very few people in the UK have ever heard of!

We stayed at the Honeymoon Petra Villas in Imerovigli and what a good idea that was!

All the Hotels in this part of Santorini are of a particular type. Most of the buildings you see in the photographs, cascading over the top of the cliffs down into the Caldera, are now Hotel accommodations. Having stayed there for a week (and being pretty nosey), I have come to the conclusion that Honeymoon Villas is one of the best - if not THE best!

It is amazing! It is immaculate, well run, peaceful and stunning! I can't think of any other place on Santorini that could possibly have a better view. It is the highest point of the Caldera and the views of the Volcano, Thira (Fira) and all the goings on down below are breathtaking!

The Hotel itself is quite a sprawling affair. It has the 'Traditional' part and the 'Petra' part. The traditional rooms and suites are fairly scattered around the cliff side, with some near the reception area which is quite far from the pool and breakfast area and some which are below the pool area. I have to say, though, that they all looked lovely - with personalities all their own.

We stayed in the newer Petra part which was very nice indeed. These are near the pool facilities and are all very fresh and clean. Everything worked, including the Air Conditioning! Which is very un-Greek! (Based on my many previous Greek exploits!) Lovely bed, fantastic rain shower with limitless hot water. About 200 channels on the TV, 190 of which were German, but, well, so what...

Breakfast was superb. Served from 8am - 10am. You will be greeted by one of the girls and presented with freshly squeezed orange juice and a choice of Tea or Coffee. You then set youself loose in the breakfast buffet area and go for it! Fantastic! Pick a spot by the pool to eat or in the breakfast area above the pool if you like.

Only downside for me, personally, was the presence of the owner, Yanni. His 'office' was sitting at one of the tables where breakfast was eaten, next to the pool. He positioned himself there for a high proportion of the day, and I didn't like that. I realise that some people do though as at least he was easily available if you needed to talk to him! I found him to be bit a bit too much of a presence. Not a problem, though. He was nice enough to the guests...

Having said that, he did run a very tight ship. The place was utterly immaculate and obviously his pride and joy. Can't knock that!

Food is served from the pool bar all day until 6pm. It's a pretty extensive menu and some of the best food we ate the whole week was from the Honeymoon kitchens. Superb.

Pool was lovely too. Never busy. Probably because it was pretty cold! Very refreshing!

Fira is a very pleasant 20 - 30 min stroll away from the Hotel. We actually only went once and we timed it all wrong! Keep an eye on the number of liners that are anchored in the bay below the hotel and don't bother trying to visit Fira when there are any more than two down there! We went when there was three and Fira was basically totally gridlocked with tourists! Not good.

Fantastic place though! Lots of pretty good gift and fashion shops with more eating possibilities than you can imagine. Easy to spend a whole day there, just try and time your visit better than we did!

Imerovigli has many good Restaurants. Most have fantastic Caldera views, but our favourite, Anogi, had no views at all. What it does have is a nice buzz and good food, served with a smile! Ate there three times. Very popular, so either pre-book, eat early or just wing it and hope for the best! It's worth it!

Ate at The Blue Note, round the north side of Imerovigli, one night which was stunning! Time your meal with the sunset. Food was pretty good, especially the Burger!

Did the Volcano trip on the Saturday which was enjoyable. My wife especially enjoyed it as the guide was a very handsome chap apparently! In fact most of the ladies seemed to enjoy the trip! He was a good looking bloke, but he also new his stuff! He is a volcanologist who does some tour guiding as opposed to a tour guide who had to buff up on volcanos. He leapt about the volcano with great enthusiasm and told us the whole story of Santorini and how it got to be the way it is today. Good day.

Weather is consistently hot! Breezy at times, but hot! Bring a good book, some good suntan lotion, an empty belly and enjoy!

We'll be back...
