Our stay in the Blue Dolphins was an unforgetable experience; you get to wake up to the most amazing views on the entire island, the apartments are very clean and comfortable and well equiped for the modern traveller, but best of all were the hosts of the Blue Dolphins - Alexis, Thomas and Dennis will help you get the most...

We have been to many beautiful places in our travels but if someone told me they could take 1 trip before they died, I would recommend Santorini-----AND to stay at the Blue Dolphins, because that was a huge part of what made our stay here so wonderful. We arrived without a room but headed right over there because of the...

We had one night as a treat, staying at The Blue Dolphins whilst on Santorini. We were upgraded at no additional cost to a lovely room with jacuzzi. Perfect view over the caldera for the sunset. We used the pool of the neighbouring hotel which enjoyed stunning views.

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
