Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 June 2011

Spent 6 nights on our 5th visit to the SP. As wonderful as the previous four. Renovations have been done since last year, and lifts the hotel up a notch. Achilleas and Alexandros were as helpful and professional as usual. The staff, including Nadia and Igor are extremely customer orientated. Thankyou.

We stayed at Santorini Princess for two nights, and we truely enjoyed the spectacular view, beautiful heated pool, and excellent service. The location is very exclusive which also means it is best to rent a car to see the island. You can rent the car at reception and it is very affordable. The hotel is only about 10 minutes to Oia where you can enjoy a day out. Fira is a 35 minute walk or a just a short taxi ride away. We took the bus back from Fira and it only cost 75p. You just have to make sure you tell the driver to drop you off at Iris (the restaurant outside of the hotel).

Waking up to the view of the Caldera basin was absolutely wonderful! The Santorini Princess Spa Hotel certainly lives up to its reputation, its location is breathtaking! The apartment we had was a good size, a very comfortable bed, housekeeping excellent. Only downside, no kettle to make tea, something we missed first thing of a morning on waking up. Food was excellent, although we did not eat in the restaurant every evening, we wanted to experience the tavernas. Views from the restaurant were fantastic, watching the sunset whilst having dinner, very memorable! Staff at breakfast and dinner were excellent, nothing too much trouble, always there ready to help. The staff, from housekeeping, bellboys, waiters, receptionists are a credit to the management, they add value to the hotel! The owners, Achilles and Alex were very welcoming, personally making sure we were comfortable throughout our stay.

Walking is highly recommended along the cliff to Imerovigli, view out to sea constantly changing. Tavernas very, very good, excellent food.

I recommend hiring a car to explore the island including, Ancient Thira and Ia for the sunset, although I personally recommend watching the vibrant sunset from the hotel! There are many very good restaurants in Ia, especially on the quay, fresh caught fish, excellent.

Santorini is wonderful, unforgettable and although there are many steps when visiting towns, including ancient Thira, it is well worth the 'exercise'! We will certainly be returning.

Room Tip: All apartments have a great view over the caldera

This is one of the most wonderful places I've ever stayed at. The location is tucked away close to the cliffs, and every room has a great view of the caldera (and if you're lucky, the sunset as well). The first room we got was great (room 5, I think?), but we were hoping for a second floor room. We discussed this with our host, and this was changed for us immediately (room 9). The pool is heated (to 30 degrees Celcius).

Location-wise - the resort is a short (and extremely gorgeous) walk to Fira (~35 minutes), and although you could walk to Oia as well, it's 1.5 h likely and not as easy terrain. Taxi is a 10 minute drive. The SP provides taxi service from the hotel for reasonable rates (a bit cheaper than taking a taxi from town... although I'm sure we got scammed a euro here and there from the taxi drivers). We rented a car in Fira one day, and the island can be traversed that way within a day - it takes 30-40 minutes to get from one end of the island to the other. Mostly though, we spent our time sitting on the sun chairs either on our balcony or by the pool.

The food is exceptional, and the staff provided excellent recommendations for places to eat in Oia or Fira, with any budget in mind.

When I read reviews on this place, many of the negative reviews had mentioned the hard beds. I did not find them like "rocks" as many had, and felt they were very comfortable (although they were firm).

I would recommend this place to everyone. It's pricey, but you get what you pay for. It was well worth it, to us. If you're looking for something upbeat and crazy, this place isn't for you. It is, however, very very relaxing. I did not worry about anything. They even give you a small parting gift on your way out. We stayed for 4 nights, and wish we had time to stay for longer.

Room Tip: We had room 9, it was great.

My wife and I were recommended The Princess by friends of ours who stayed there in 2009 and we are happy to say that it did not disappoint. The location with it's spectacular views, the nicest and professional staff we have come by in some time and a commitment to making sure you enjoy every aspect of your stay made SP a wonderful experience. Do not expect the room amenities to blow you away but they are very clean and spacious - just a bit Spartan and simple when compared to the rest of the property. Clearly we enjoyed our time here and would recommend it to anyone wanting relaxation, the friendliest staff around and views that cannot
possibly get old.

My husband and I stayed here at the end of our 10th anniversary celebration in parts of Italy and Greece. This is one of the most beautiful, relaxing and accommodating places. To begin, we were greeted by Achilleous (one of the owners) and were swept off our feet. He introduced us to Elena, our "go to" gal to show us around. This place is unbelievable and you never have to leave the resort. We decided to ventured out and Archilleous arranged for us to rent an ATV for a day - $40E; what a deal, gotta love it.
We went into town to shop, visited the black beaches and toured the island, which you can do in a day and I highly recommend it. We sampled the local restaurants and truly enjoyed the hospitality of the Greeks.
Back to the Princess, the food here was wonderful, the service superb and it was a great way to end our vacation. We spent our last day by the pool relaxing, Greek salad and some appetizers for lunch (so YUMMY) and a massage for Me. Just can't get any better than that.
Imagine sitting on your individual patio, glass of wine in hand, watching the beautiful sunset, breathtaking.
Often, you look at pictures on websites and get to your location and realize the pictures were old or not of the same place. NOT the case here, their pictures are the real deal and indicate the beauty; but you have to really see it to believe it. Would HIGHLY recommend this place if you want a peaceful, relaxing, "all about you" experience.

Room Tip: Call or email Achilleous or Alexandros
