Iconic Santorini, a boutique cave hotel

From the moment we are arrived at Iconic Santorini Hotel we were all mesmerised by the jaw dropping view. The hotel is situated on a cliff 1500ft above sea level looking over the Caldera and sea. There were 6 of us in our party and we have all travelled extensively and visited beautiful places and stayed in some of the best hotels in the world. I only mention this to give the reader a point of reference from which I say that this beautiful boutique hotel is one of the loveliest places I have ever stayed. The staff were all incredibly kind and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were so comfortable with all up to date amenities like flat screen TV's and wireless included in rate. Beds most luxuriously comfortable,rooms and whole hotel area kept immaculate,relaxing atmosphere and private space to ourselves, good food, lovely salt water pool, and the view always amazing. The moon seemed to sit like a lantern above us...

Room Tip: ALL the rooms are lovely and have incredible views and a private seating outside area with sun beds...

Stunning views

Most comfortable bed on earth

Lovely breakfast outside balcony

Gorgeous food

Very friendly and helpful staff

Rooms clean, white, modern with a hint of Greek.

15 min drive from airport

5 min drive from Fira town or long walk.

Lots of stairs to go up and down but you are on the edge of a cliff!

We stayed in deluxe rooms N which is on same floor as restaurant and pool with beautiful caldera views!

You won't regret your stay!!!!

It's unusual to agree wholeheartedly with reviews but we, on this occasion, do so therefore little point in reiterating the comments! This is the first five star hotel that we have stayed in where we have felt that we were at home. This was mainly due to the incredible emotional intelligence of the management and staff, in particular Dimitris. We soon learned there was very little point in going out to eat as the quality of the food in the hotel was not only excellent but very reasonably and competitively priced. We did not want to leave.

We stayed one week at Iconic Santorini and will never forget our stay at this outstanding hotel! Fortunately we had booked a Caldera Suite with a stunning view over the caldera rim from the very front row at both our breakfast table and the heated outdoor pool (!). The lovely cave suites are spacious and well equipped (incl wifi access) and perfectly clean.

Overall, attention is paid to every little detail: little flowers in the room, fresh cake in the afternoon, candles outside the room at night. The staff was always nice and very obliging and took care of all our wishes and requests. The assistance managed everything - from our transportation from/to the airport to recommending and booking of restaurants and potential activities on the island, etc.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Iconic Santorini and undoubtedly recommend it to anyone looking for an unforgettable experience close to paradise! Thank you very much Christine, Panagiota, Pauline, Ioanna, Dimitris, George and all the others that we didn't mention here for the most enjoyable and relaxing holidays we've ever had!

N&A from Germany

Room Tip: Definitely ask for a room in the very front row incl an outdoor pool!

My wife and I went there 2 weeks ago for our honeymoon. Let me just say that the hotel and the staff made it an unforgettable experience and made our honeymoon that more special.
rooms were very cozy and well designed and the beds and sleep quality were excellent. I really never felt myself leave home due to the staff attentiveness, friendliness and helpfulness. On our second day there was a storm and to my surprise i get a call from reception asking about my plans for the night so that they can save us a table for dinner if we were staying in...big kudos for that. Had a couple massage as well which was perfect as well.

amazing venue, amazing service, lovely staff....will recommend it to anyone heading to santorini.

will definitely be back again.

I have had the great fortune to have traveled the world (London, Bangkok, Singapore, Argentina, China, etc...) and this was, by far, the greatest hotel experience of my life. The views from our room were breathtaking. The staff was so friendly, attentive and helpful. They made us feel like part of the family. The rooms were elegant, clean, spacious, fully equipped including wifi which kept me in contact with my business affairs. The food at the hotel was the best we had in Greece which is saying a lot because Greece offers such wonderful culinary options. I can’t say enough good things about this hotel, it’s staff, location and quality. We can’t wait to go back.

My sister and I stayed at the Iconic Santorini last week for 6 nights and we couldn’t be happier with our holidays! The weather was wonderful, the hotel is absolutely beautiful, the views are stunning and the staff is extremely nice and attentive to your every needs!

I sent a few e-mails beforehand, asking about some touristic information about Santorini, and immediately got a reply from Guest service with a list of different activities we could do and also offering their assistance to manage everything, from our transportation from the airport to doing all the bookings for the activities etc.

We were welcomed at the hotel with a glass of Vinsanto, very delicious Santorini sweet wine,and from that point on all the staff was extremely nice and attentive to all our requests. We booked a Doble Deluxe room, and on the second day we wanted to upgraded to a room with the pool on the terrace, totally worth it, and we were offered a very nice discount! Breakfast, and any other meal we chose to have, was served in our own private terrace with spectacular views to the Caldera! Soft drinks and water was complementary!

I’d say the only less positive aspect is the lack of in-room dining, and also they don’t serve any food after 22h.

I would most definitely go back and recommend it to anyone that wants to have a holiday in paradise!
