When a friend of mine suggested on staying on Tholos Resort , i expected more or less the classic traditional studio of a Greek island. I was wrong! This place is magical! And i am not talking only about the magnificent view but also about the fairy-tale like rooms which will surely take you to another "dimension". The staff is very friendly and George is one of the most classy and in the same time fun talking to guys i ever met! 5 stars from me!

My wife and I recently returned from our stay at Tholos Resort, and it was truly an incredible experience. We have travelled to many other parts of Europe, and this was beyond our expectations. All of the staff at Tholos were extremely helpful, and most pleasant. Dinner was prepared for us a couple of nights on our balcony, and the food was excellent. We enjoyed amazing sunsets looking over the Caldera, and woke up every morning to a fresh pot of tea and coffee along with an excellent breakfast served on our balcony. If you are able, the hike to the other side of the Caldera is worth it there is a church on the other side, with an incredible view. It is about a 40 minute walk to Fira, the main town, and about a two hour walk to Oia, (or short bus trip ten minutes from the hotel). It is a long walk down to the bottom at Oia but once you are there the food , the sunset and the ambience are well worth it. There is a lot to do in Santorini, wished that we had stayed another two nights or more. There are grocery stores close by, if you need some supplies for your frigde. We couldn't have asked for a better place, nicer people who staff the hotel, and can hardly wait until we can return some day. Tholos is situated near the town Imeravigli. We had done quite a bit of research where we wanted to stay, mainly away from the hustle and bustle of Fira and that is why we chose to be near Imeravigli. It was only a ten minute walk to the bus stop, where we could catch a bus to Oia, or to Fira and it was easy to transfer in Fira to go to the black beach or anywhere else you needed to. There are several grocery stores in the area so that you can stock up on wine, beer bread, cheese, many other treats.
We travelled at the end of September from Kingston Ontario Canada. It was a lot quieter, the rates were more reasonable and was easier to get bookings.
The ferry service was very easy. Contrary to what we had been told, it was easy to book when we got there for the next day or two days ahead. There a several locations to get tickets. If the seas look like they are going to be rough...take the larger ferry.
If you are intending to go out at night it would be wise to take along a flashlight. We packed a couple of them, and they came in handy as the paths are a bit uneven and you can walk along the seaside forever.

When I booked our trip, I thought the Tholos Resort was a little pricey - however the view was worth the price! Nice room - nothing fancy, but spacious and comfortable. The breakfast on our balcony was excellent, but if you are looking for privacy - be forewarned that the balconies are extremely close together, so we dined every morning with a couple from Germany. Celeste and the rest of the staff were awesome! Lots of fun and had great information for us.

Only thing I wouldn't recommend is ordering dinner from the room service menu. On our first night (after a long day of travel), we ordered dinner from room service and it really was sub-par - fish was overcooked and dry. Other than that, which was a minor thing, we really enjoyed our stay and would return.

We stayed @ Tholos Resort in September 2009 and we could not be happier with our decision. We have never written a review before, but our stay @ Tholos was one of the best experiences we have ever had a hotel and we wanted to provide our review. The hotel is in the perfect location - right in the middle of Santorini in Imerovigli & the views just do not get any better. The staff is just great (especially the hotel mgr - Celeste!). Celeste or the other manager, Sharon, will provide you a very thorough overview of the island upon your arrival and then help you book any excursions or answer any questions for you. If you need anything - they are more than willing to assist and were just so gracious and welcoming. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are a good size with everything you need (including a hair dryer, which I forgot). We stayed just above the pool and the view was perfect. The food at the hotel is also very good (best saganaki we had on the island) - and the chef, Viochek, is a pleasure to chat with as well. We definitely recommend a dinner in on your balcony one night. We spent a lot of time just relaxing at the pool - which is a larger size than most of the other hotels we saw there and very clean. If you are looking for a romantic, relaxing hotel with superb service, clean rooms and great food; this is the place. The only comment is be prepared for the stairs, everything on the caldera side of the island requires some stair climbing.

We stayed at Tholos for a couple of nights after having already spending a few nights in Oia. We wanted to stay in Imerovigli to try a different area in Santornini and get a slightly better sunset than in Oia.

We scoped out several of the higher end hotels right around Tholos and believed Tholos to be good value for money. The pool was nice, deck chairs were comfortable and the view was from the balcony's and pool area are truely perfect.

But once we checked in, we were a little less than impressed with the room. While we had a private balcony, we were located near the kitchen area, which was a congregating spot for staff. We felt that we lacked some privacy. But, once we informed the reception staff, the noise did stop and we felt a bit more comfortable.

We also had problems with the bathroom. The plumbing was not secure on the bath and leaked behind the tub onto the floor with every shower/bath, soaking the floor. Since we were only spending a couple of nights, we did care to allow the staff to attempt to fix it.

On a positive note, the staff was helpful and offered to arrange transportation to the airport, had some good recommendations for food, and was friendly overall. The pool area is perfect and the views from the from the balconies and pool are the best in Santornini. From the hotel, you are looking directly at Skaros, and very unique and picturesque view of the Caldera and island.

Breakfast is included and was quite good (continental style - coffee, bread, jams, fruit, cheese, and meat). But, for the money, I would prefer to stay at one of the other hotels nearby.

As for Imerovigli, althought the view is splendid, this is not a good location for anyone with special needs or having difficulty walking many, many steps. At night, the walks can be difficult as some of the paths are not well lit. This is true of Imerovigli overall and not specific to Tholos.

Also - nightlife and restaurants are almost non-existent...if you stay here - you'll likely go to Fira or Oia for dinner/nightlife. I recommend renting an ATV or scooter. Fun and convenient!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Santorini hotel of your choice in Imerovigli, on the island of Santorini. Much beloved and world-famous, the island of Santorini in Greece is a place of awesome beauty and bewitching atmosphere. Its exceptional character is a blend of blazing volcanic rock, against the backdrop of the deep cobalt-blue sea and the clear Aegean sky. The imposing Caldera is the result of the volcano's biblical eruption, a crescent of cliffs rising steeply hundreds of meters above the water, with white villages nestled upon their tops. One of these picturesque settlements is Imerovigli, a small distance away from the capital of Santorini, Fira, where you can find Tholos Luxury Hotel Resort. Perched on the cliff of the Caldera, the hotel will offer you an accommodation of luxury and hospitality, in a magnificent setting overlooking the volcano. Panoramic vistas to the crater, submerged into the deepest blue waters, sparkling under the bright sunlight, will leave you enchanted in the day, while the spectacular sunsets that turn the landscape into a melange of dreamy pictures will make your memories unforgettable. The whitewashed apartments and studios, all in the traditional Cycladic style, are built on different levels of the cliff, with terraces or balconies facing the superb surroundings. In their discreetly luxurious interiors you'll find comfort and relaxation. At the patio by the outdoor pool on the other hand, you'll enjoy refreshing moments under the sun or romantic time under the stars. The service, day and night, is friendly and impeccable, while the hotel's owners are always at your disposal for your every need while staying here. ... more   less
