Let me start by saying I NEVER do hotel reviews because I am on the road 50 to 100 nights a year. So the fact that I am doing this means my experience was either extraordinarily bad, or good. In this case, it was amazing. From the moment we arrived to the time we left, the hotel manager, "Niko," personally...

This place is amazing! Niko was more than a host. It felt like he was family. We were at the hotel around 9 am and our check in was at 2 pm. He drove us back to the city so that he could get our villa ready quickly while we eat breakfast at Calssico with a lovely view. Picked us...

The best customer service. The best staff. The best view. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Nico was without a doubt amazing with setting things up, telling us about the island, and letting us in on the know for what to do and see. With Nico you can't go wrong. My fiancé and I spent 4 amazing days there...

We booked after reading all the great reviews and seeing its top ranking. Our experience surpassed even our high expectations.

My wife and I visited the Celestia Grand in Sept. 2016 and were greeted by most welcoming host you could imagine, the amazing Niko. Niko gave us a 1/2 hour orientation which included the history of Santorini, things to see, restaurants to eat at, and an open invitation to contact him with whatever needs we had. He was always easy...

We had an amazing time at Celestia Grand hotel. What a spot. Let's start with the view: amazing - probably the best view in the world if you like sunsets (and who doesn't). Next, the accommodations: beautiful - big comfortable beds (rare in Europe), the rooms are gorgeous and there is plenty of space. And the pool - where do...

“We had duplex with private hot tub. Children on top floor-perfect for families!”

“I believe there are only 2 villas with a hot tub/spa pool outside - try to secure one of these if it's within your budget, especially if you're staying in the colder months, otherwise you won't be using the outdoor facilities at all as the pools are not heated (unless you've got a crazy hubby like I do).”

“Niko said he was all booked and we had one of the more modest villas (he said if the hotel were not full, he would have tried to upgrade us). But as discussed in the review, the villa was fantastic. So ANY room in this place is great.”
