“"NOW, WE DANCE!"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2011

It has been two weeks since our return from Anastasis, and we are still dancing! We miss you, Despina, Irini, and Anna Maria! We cannot wait to return to incredible Santorini and there is no other place we would stay than Anastasis. You typify the beauty and warmth of the Greek people, and make everyone wish they’d never have to leave your wonderful isle.

A stay at Anastasis will ruin you for all future destinations. The beauty of the view exceeds every photo you’ll ever see. The service levels at this fabulous property will exceed every expectation built by the 5 star reviews you read on this site. Despina is undoubtedly the Queen, but she treats her guests as royalty. She arranges for many pleasant surprises in your day, starting with a decadent breakfast beautifully presented on your balcony, to midday refreshments of cold frappe coffee, to cocktails of your choosing, Jacuzzi-side in the evening. There are more surprises, but I don’t want to get in trouble by giving away all of her secrets. Despina has achieved the perfect balance between 5 star service and unintrusive discretion.

While Anastasis is warm and friendly, it is managed very professionally with care and precision. We stayed in one of the two second floor suites, which was spacious and exceedingly comfortable. The size of our balcony was hard to believe, it had abundant space and included a dining table, two chaises, two umbrellas, and a private Jacuzzi. Inside, there was a “stocked” beverage fridge as well as a fully outfitted kitchen area. The bath was large and beautifully appointed. The bed and bedding were top quality. The suite was well worth its price, as there were several days where we hardly could bring ourselves to leave. We enjoyed the pool and its deck as well. The pool in May was still quite chilly but we and several guests enjoyed a swim every afternoon. The property is kept CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN. The men on staff are continuously wiping down chaises, swabbing the pool deck, pruning the gardens, and attending to any of the guests’ requests in an instant.

But, it is the DANCING with Irini that we miss most. Please dance with her in our absence.

Room Tip: Suites are exceptionally spacious and comfortable.

There is little that I can add that has not already been said before. My wife and I had high expectations having read so many good reviews, and we found that the "Anastasis team" delivered at every level and all of the positive comments proved to be true. Still, our expectations were exceeded, thanks to the little extra's and personal touches provided by the excellent team that Despina has supporting her, and they all contributed to making our anniversary celebration VERY SPECIAL.

One tip: If you plan to walk along the beautiful coastal paths that run from the hotel, I would suggest that you have a good pair of walking shoes/sandals, or at least a pair of trainers/sneakers.

My husband and I had spent three stressful days in Athens prior to our stay at Anastasis, and Anastasis really saved our trip!! Despina and her lovely staff were wonderful the entire time! Our room (superior apartment) was beautiful and comfortable, the view was spectacular, the breakfast served on the balcony was awesome; they even left breakfast for us in our room on the last evening for our early departure the next day. The staff were so helpful with respect to information on sightseeing and getting around. Every afternoon, there is complimentary coffee (delicious and well-presented) and every sunset, complimentary wine. It is in a quiet area, but the bus runs by frequently, going to both Fira and Oia. We took buses most of the time (very inexpensive and efficient way to get around; many tourists chose this method). When we were not near a bus route, the Anastasis goes through a lovely private taxi company with friendly drivers, that is billed to your room. Also, if you happen to hail a cab, the taxis are not private, but are more friendly and honest then they are in Athens. I could go on and on about how lovely our stay was, and I can definitely say that we will return to this place. Efharisto to the entire Anastasis staff! :)

it's a nice stay in Anastasis. super friendly and enthusiastic owner and staff. very useful advises and tips were provided for our island visit. easy to feel their consideration and thoughtfulness.
you don't want to miss the hiking trail - walk from Anastasis to Fira is a MUST! just follow the instruction by Anastasis.

We booked to go to Anastasis on the strength of the TripAdvisor reviews and we were certainly not disappointed. The views from Anastasis are genuinely breathtaking and the sunsets are stunning (my profile picture is just one example from our holiday). But just as importantly, the service is fantastic and perfectly balanced - it's the little touches like being met at the gate to the apartments with a drink of cold water after a long walk and little treats left in the room when you get back of an evening. I can't stand over fussy service and Despina and her team really have got the right mix of being there whenever you might need/want something but not being constantly in your face when you're just enjoying the peace and quiet.
We stayed in the Anastasis Suite which was awesome - with its own hot tub on the balcony it's got to be the best view of the sunset from anywhere on the island! Some people may question the location of the apartments as it really is in the middle of nowhere - and Despina and her team make no apology for that because you get the best of both worlds, all the peace and quiet of being away from the tourist hotspots combined with being a short taxi ride away from the bigger towns. Plus there's a really great little Taverna (Tasos) just up the road where you'll be met with great Greek hospitality, fantastic food and, as we found out on our first night, copious amounts of Raki because you were foolish enough as a tourist to ask what it was like (FYI it's pretty nasty, as is the next day's hangover!).
Santorini is a truly beautiful island, and staying at Anastasis made it an unforgettable holiday. We will certainly be back!

What can we say more about Anastasis apartments than all reviews already written... we could fill pages but only with positive things and superlatives.
This "dreampalace" is top of rating and ranking; here details and little surprises make your stay unforgettable. We were touched by the warm hospitality of Despina and her team. Despina makes you feel like a member of her family; team is always (discrete) around with help, quick service, very polite... Rooms are beautiful furnished, suites have private jacuzzi on balcony (white suite even with private garden), rooms are super clean as is the hole building in- and outside, good poolsize (not evident on this island). Be aware there is no restaurant or bar but snacks and salads (delicious) and all kind of drinks are available and served in your room, balcony or poolside. Breakfast was a delight. All this made it very hard for us to leave this little paradise. Do mind the hotel is just outside Imerovigli in a very quiet location, perfect for a romantic getaway. We were very lucky to stay here and can't thank Despina and her team enough for great service and hospitality.

Room Tip: Book a suite with private jacuzzi.

What can I say that hasnt already been said by the previous 360 excellent reviews.. Despina and her team run this beautiful small family hotel with military precision, pride and warmth found nowhere else on earth. I suppose it is possible because the hotel only has 10 rooms and the proportion of staff to rooms seems very high!! I had very high expectations based on the reviews on this site and was not disappointed.. and believe me Ive written some scathing reviews about hotels in the past! We stayed in the honeymoon suite for 4 nights and had an amazing experience... the room is so cute, fridge stocked with water and soft drinks free of charge.The outdoor jacuzzi in the room is fabulous, and they prepare it for you whenever you want during the day until 8pm. We literally called and 30 seconds later one of the staff was in the room to prepare it!! Of course there are many hotels on the lip of the caldera with the same view, and many look very cute (you see them on the walk from the hotel towards Fira) but I bet you arent looked after like you are in the Anastasis!!! The staff literally bend over backwards to make you happy. Special thanks to Anne Marie from Finland, she was a gem in organising our wine tasting tour and recommending and booking restaurants! Dimitris in Amoudi is a must, and Vanilia was wonderful too. Many thanks to the whole team, you made our honeymoon an unforgettable experience. P.S. They dont have a restaurant but the snacks they provide with room service are really really good and amazing value. My only gripe is that the hotel pool is too cold to swim in in May!!!
