“Superb Views, great staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2012

Great stay at this hotel. Friendly staff who were very discrete and allowed you your privacy. I'd recommend staying in one of the suites with its own pool - even though there is a main pool with the hotel. On arrival we were offered champagne which was a nice touch.

The suites were of excellent size and the bathroom was massive. The hotel is a little outside of Fira town and not really walkable, however there is a courtesy bus to take guests to and from Fira. I'd recommend hiring a car on arrival as we found it very useful for getting into Fira and around the island.

Room Tip: Suites with their own pool

After lots of considered research on dream hotels in Santorini... We decided to book the petit Palace Suites for the first 3nights of our weeks stay. (moving to Kastelli Resort in Kamari - Great also) & we weren't disappointed.
We were greated by Mike on reception at 11pm with a glass of champagne & given a Island overview before being taken to our lovely suite (121) Huge terrace area & cave like bedroom at edge of complex. Breakfast selection was huge- Pools perfect - complex quiet- service fantastic- Mojitos were spot on - Location 30min walk in Fira - shuttle service is Fab - used it every day.
wouldnt hesitate to recommend to family & friends.

We stayed at Petit Palace in September 2011. The hotel is incredible from the little apartments to the pools and the views. Breakfast is served to order in your room and was just fantastic. The staff was exceptionally friendly and eager to go out of their way to assist. More than once they delivered special desserts or wine to us and we appreciated feeling valued as guests. The setting is romantic and we would relish the opportunity to stay here again.

Picture perfect hotel, with amazing views and gorgeous accommodation.
Location can be seen as positive and negative depending on your view. It is a good 30-40min walk to fira which we found made it difficult to get in and out of town despite the shuttle bus. Hotel loses its 5star appeal when your cattled onto a shuttle bus. Recommend hiring a car/atv.
Turn left walk 10mins and there is a good supermarket and bakery.
Service was slow however good and helpful. Check-in was the only real let down of this amazing place. We were on our honeymoon and on arrival at 12pm were told our rooms are almost ready. Our confirmation said checkin was at 12. After waiting 2.5hrs by the lounge, after being promised complimentary drinks that had never arrived we were finally let in our room. We normally understand that rooms are not always ready on time but this should be clearly communcIcated to us at the start giving us the opportunity to decide whether we wanted wait or perhaps go in to town or whatever. Staff were apologetic after I gave them a rant but check-ins should be an exciting time not as we experienced. This was heightened when another group checking-in at the same time as us also had issues. After hearing them argue with hotel staff it seems one of them was moved to a sister hotel down the road. Left sour taste in our mouth.
However still an amazing hotel. Recommend!!

We had a fantastic time at the Petit Palace.

All of the previous reviews have really said it all to be honest. It is a great hotel with lovely staff & its worth staying for the views alone. I could have sat on our balcony for hours (actually I did) just staring out across the Caldera as it is simply breathtaking!

Having breakfast served on the balcony was nice, although after a few days we did get a little frustrated having to wake up at a specific time knowing that it would be delivered. However, to walk out on the terrace with the amazing view & have breakfast being served is not really much to complain about!!

The pool was lovely and we often ended up having it all to ourselves. The only complaint was that most mornings we had to go to reception to ask for pool towels as they never seemed to be ready before 11am.

Service at the pool was friendly and we enjoyed some lovely cocktails poolside. It was peaceful & very relaxing!

I would highly recommend the Petit Palace and we will be back at some point in the future!
