This hotel offered warm and friendly service but it's most advantageous attraction is its location. It is perched way above the uniquely tiered undulating clifftops of Santorini. It is wow factor material indeed! The staff were fantastic and saw to our every need. However, the rooms are very dated, including the bathrooms, which were very old and pokey. The door...

As my title states, this was our hotel for our honeymoon, prior to booking we went back and forth about getting a hotel w/ no view of the caldera and get a pool (while staying in budget) or got for a hotel with view. We decided to got with the view.... WELL WORTH IT!!! First, I would like to point...

To be honest, this is just an average budget range hotel that happens to be in one of the most desirable locations in the world. Everybody is friendly and helpful, the breakfast is great, and the view is beyond description, but the beds are average at best, the rooms are small, tattered, and smell of mildew. The hot water has...

My husband and I stayed one night. 5 stars for location, views and staff, 3 stars for accommodations. The location is superb - the hotel is a 5-10 minute walk from the taxi and bus stands and right in the heart of Fira, a perfect jumping off point to explore the area. The hotel /room views are true to the...

If you want to feel like you are in Santorini and want to enjoy the feeling of the island I can't recommend a better hotel. The prices are reasonable and the included breakfast is excellent. The view is worth a million dollars !

We stayed in Kavalari for few days to attend a wedding. The experience was amazing from start to end. We have booked a superior room with a balcony. I can't describe how useful the balcony was especially during sunrise and sunset. The room was worth the money. The location of the hotel is just perfect and in the middle of...

Value for money, fantastic location, awesome views, great staff - what more could you ask for! We loved the fact that you could have the amazing sunset views without the crowds. The rooms are comfortable, although not as modern or up market as some of the others nearby, they provide a unique hillside cave experience which we loved. We were...
