“The Only Place to Stay in Santorini!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2013

The very best views of the Caldera are from your balcony at Heliotopos! Our "cave dwelling" felt like a spacious apartment with more room than we needed and every amenity you'd expect from a 5 star hotel. The hotel boasts the most perfect location in all of Santorini with an easy walk to Fira but away from all the noise and traffic that Fira has. We made the hike to Oia as well as hiked up Skaros which are easily accesible from the hotel...two things you should not miss while on Santorini. Heliotopos serves a great breakfast with the best fresh squeezed orange juice you can find. All of this makes for a good hotel but what makes it a truly amazing hotel are the wonderful people who operate it and invite you into their hotel. They will give you all the recommendations you need and make you feel as though they are welcoming you into their home.

The very best of Santorini. Stayed her with my wife and five year old daughter during the middle of May. Start the day off with a breakfast in a cave and end it with the most awesome view of the sunset. Why would you stay anywhere else? The helpful staff never missed on recommendations for dining or sightseeing. We are so grateful. My daughter still misses the staff as they were so wonderful with her. If you are looking for a great Boutique Hotel for family or a romantic getaway in Santorini, you've found it here!

Room Tip: All rooms offer a great views!

Heliotopos hotel made us believe that we live in a fairytale. We went for Easter there, with a traditional atmosphere on the spit making you feel like home. The stuff was very gentle, with a great sense of hospitality that made us feel like we are a big family. What can I say about the fantastic breakfast in the cave? You think you re still dreaming...
We left the hotel with the promise to come back!

I visited Heliotopos with friends in 2012. The weather was amazing and the hotel was perfect. It was one of the most beautiful places I had ever been to in my life. The magnificent view of the Mediterranean and volcanoes will blow you away. The hotel has the most picturesque view of the sunset that you’ll feel as though you are in a postcard. The hotel has immaculate service. The hotel staff always do all they can to make you feel special and welcome. I felt like Heliotopos was my home away from home. Heliotopos has a wonderful pool and a restaurant with home cooked amazing foods. It is located within walking distance from the shopping distract and is only 5 minutes away from the nearest bus stop.

I am going back to Heliotopos in about 10 days for another unforgettable vacation.

It is not easy to describe, in some words, the whole sensation you feel when you live it: Heliotopos is situated in a magnifiscent island -Santorini-, but this is not just its strongest advantage. Heliotopos has a gorgeous [if not the best] view to the Volcano. Moreother, the best ever hospitality that someone -not a friend or relative- has given me. Just to mention, my girlfriend and I had our most romantic moments there. For all these reasons, I (or we, you never know) will come back there and hope this moment won't be late. Amongst others, to taste again Mrs Lilla's cheese pie.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2013 via mobile

Stayed here in Mid April in 4 person room (2Adults, 2 children - 11 and 8).
Very warm and friendly staff but in no way intrusive. In fact the hotel has more of a guesthouse feel. Yiota was generous with her time and advice. She took washing into town to get done for us, helped with itineraries and was great with the children.
Location: Imergroveli is a good 20 -30 minute walk to Fira. We did the walk every day with 2 children without difficulty. The view is beautiful along the old cobble paths between the whitewashed buildings. If you don't want to walk, there is a bus stop about 5 mins away. In terms of places to eat, there are 2 nice places Atiund the corner. Lots of mini marts should you want to make some snacks. The view from the hotel is amazing. It is in an exposed spot so can be very windy although this applies to most of the area.
Rooms: Very clean. Comfortable beds with electric blankets should you need them. Flushable toilets and clean bathroom and shower. Need to turn on the hot water heater 20 mins before a shower. Heater for winter and air-conditioner for summer. Nice vibe- feels like home.
Breakfast is included with fresh orange juice and coffee made to order. We were always full afterwards.

We would stay here again
