When you walk from Fira, towards Oia, you'll reach a point where the view can't be surpassed. It's where most people stop to take a picture of Fira. Situated at this point is the Blue Dolphins. The view is breath taking. Pictures won't do it justice. The staff are very friendly and thorough. Our pick up and drop off to...

We lived in their Hideaway cave house. Though the house is away from the hotel/apartments but they have a drop & pick up service for breakfast. A perfect living in a local house experience. Olga was very helpful, in dropping us to our accommodation and took great deal of time to patiently explain about the attractions, arranging rent a car...

Dennis and his staff were excellent. To summarize: Airport pick-up was seamless. Staff were attentive, friendly, and always available for additional questions. For example, carried our bags, warmly welcomed us, mapped out the island and provided complementary wine and refreshments! Room was modern, spacious, clean and maintained daily. Bathroom was large and spotless. The patio was perfect. Unobstructed views with...

We booked this hotel as we were looking for something special around our wedding day in Firostefani and picked Blue Dolphins. We were very happy with the choice we had made. The staff is as helpful as they possible could be and very friendly. The view is incredible as can be seen on many pictures. The rooms are spacious and...

Blue Dolphins was fantastic - the staff were really friendly and helpful, the room was lovely, bathroom was HUGE, great view from the balcony and delicious breakfast. It's not in the hubbub of fira but we quite liked the quiet and it's only a short walk. We'd definitely go back and recommend.

Everything about this hotel will exceed your expectations!!! First of all, the staff is incredibly friendly and provides more help than you would ever expect from a hotel staff in planning your visit on Santorini. Also, my wife and I are convinced that there is no better view from any hotel on the island. The free breakfast in the morning...

I've stayed at The Blue Dolphins Apartments twice before with the same group of friends. We booked it for a third time this year to celebrate two birthdays. We absolutely love Santorini, and this hotel. It is location is quiet, but just a short walk to restaurants and shops. They serve a wonderful breakfast on the main patio, with an...

We had a very nice stay at this hotel. The staff were always very friendly and Olga was always willing to help with any questions we had. Every morning breakfast was set at the terrace, and we could enjoy a spectacular view of Fira and the Caldera. We stayed in the Romantic Suite, and the room was very nice, clean...

This hotel surprised us. Definitely worth shelling out more for a caldera view. The rooms are cosy and we'll equipped. Loved the spacious bathrooms. The deck had a lovely view of the caldera and you get to have breakfast soaking it all in. The staff is exceptionally helpful and polite. They helped sort out day tours... and with anything we...

Blue Dolphins is perfectly situated in Firastefani, only a 20 minute walk into Fira but offering much better views and tranquillity. We stayed in the Romantic Suite with private balcony. The room was huge, bed was comfortable and it was very clean. The mini-bar was stocked with beers, wines, champagnes - all included for free which was a lovely surprise!...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Blue Dolphins is situated in the village of Firostefani, which is a 10 minute walk from the capital village of Fira (through a beautiful pedestrian path on the caldera). We have the privilege of being at a magical location in terms of view and peace of scenery, but also close to the restaurants, bars and nightlife of Fira, the capital of Santorini. Blue Dolphins is also connected to the picturesque village of Imerovigli which is also just a 10 minute walk through a pedestrian path on the caldera. ... more   less
