I just love this quiet haven so close to all the Oya activity. A wonderfull place to relax with spacious suites, conveniently located and the best service🙏👍🍀🍾 When in Samtorini, this is the best place to stay.
We chose Santo Maris for our honeymoon and Im so glad we did! Excelent hotel, the staff is friendly, kind and went above and beyond to make sure everything was always perfect - everyone made us feel very spoiled during our honeymoon! The breakfast buffet is delicious, the other items in the menu we tried were also good and there is a great selection of wine, too. We had the suite with the sunset view and it was amazing: beautiful private pool, jacuzzi and the most spectacular view!
This place is amazing! Antigoni, the manager, went above and beyond to make sure we had an incredible vacation. The house we stayed in had incredible views and our own personal gym and sauna and pool overlooking the Aegean Sea. We witnessed the most incredible sunsets and every single person who works here goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy. The breakfast buffet was delicious, the location is wonderful, a five minute walk on a private path to Oia. It’s a dream come true! The place is so amazing you won’t ever want to leave the hotel!
Little late to post, we visited here April 2018 my partner was pregnant at the time with our little boy and we had the most amazing week. The staff could not have done anymore to make this an unforgettable trip apologies can’t remember everyone’s names but thanks to you all, the rooms were spacious and clean, spa facilities great and fantastic cusine for breakfast. 10/10.
Not only was the stay at this hotel incredible with the views, the breakfast, and the infinity pools but we all received complimentary 15 minute massages. 15 minutes doesn’t sound like a long time but my masseuse Efi made it feel like at least a half hour and I had some relaxing tea included. Overall, such an amazing experience. They’re doing everything right at both the hotel and spa, I couldn’t ask them to improve a thing!
Our stay at Santo Maris was perfect. We arrived mid-afternoon from the high-speed ferry and wanted a relaxing evening. We decided to dine outdoors at the onsite restaurant, Alios Ilios. We selected the 7-course traditional greek dinner with wine pairings. The service (server Sophie and sommelier) was impeccable. In our experience, the food was better than the local restaurants we tried. Our sea-view room was a great place where we watched the sunset each night away from the crowds in the busy streets of Oia. We were able to open the windows/french doors to allow the breeze to come in. The staff was great about restocking the bottled water and coffee in our room twice daily. The daily breakfast has something for everyone, including greek pastries that varied each day and champagne available free of charge. The location of the resort is nice for those looking for a truly relaxing getaway but is not too far from the bustling streets of Oia. One morning, we took a taxi to Fira and did the 7.5 mile hike along the caldera back to Oia, followed by a relaxing afternoon in our jacuzzi. After dinner that evening, we returned to the resort bar where they had live entertainment (pianist/sax). The next day, we enjoyed wandering the streets of Oia and traveling down to dinner at Ammoudi Bay. The service, cleanliness, and amenities at Santo Maris, paired with the location (and benefits thereof) were beyond my expectations....in part, because of a few negative reviews on here :) Truly, I'm not sure how anyone could write a poor review of Santo Maris Oia. If we were to return, we would stay in this resort and away from the crowded streets of Oia. Thank you to the staff for making our stay so enjoyable!
This was a truly lovely property a five- min walk away from the crowded streets of Oia! We loved it. The staff were super-friendly, the room was clean and large, and the pool was beautiful. The breakfast buffet was unreal. We were sad to leave and would definitely return.
Amazing views, extremely helpful staff, especially Manager, Ms. Antigoni Polychronaki, who assisted with a change of suite. Also, two wonderful ladies who gave us massages: Faye and Martha. All expensive, but worth the money. Excellent location for the magnificent sunsets (weather permitting) and central to hundreds of shops and restaurants. We're hoping to return in September. Abboudi Bay is also close by, where there are some wonderful fish restaurants and about 230 steps up from there will take you to the main town. Thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay in May prior to the start of the busy season.
It had been quite a few years since our last visit in the island and we had heard that Santorini had changed a lot. The crowds of tourists had somehow influenced the way Santorini should be enjoyed. This island is such a magical place. One of the unique spots on the globe that you should find yourself at least once in a lifetime. The views are magnificent- they can’t be found in any other Greek island, most probably not anywhere else in the world. But you need a certain degree of serenity to enjoy the island’s magic. And the crowds of tourists don’t do you a favour. This is why Santo Maris was the perfect place for us. Away from the crowds, but so close to the centre of Oia, it made the most pleasant retreat but also the perfect base for exploring the island. It took us just 24 hours in the hotel to fully understand why they use this «your own island» slogan. The staff was amazingly friendly and ready to come up to all our needs. We enjoyed the warm welcome in the reception, the smiling always in-the-know concierges, the twice-a-day room cleanup, the always eager and hospitable people in the restaurant and the breakfast area. Actually, during our three nights stay we felt like everyone in the hotel was trying to make our stay as comfortable as possible. And they achieved it. The island-style room was very spacious. Comfortable and cosy yet quite luxurious and stylish, with all the little details that make the difference. The terrace was large, calm, with nice view and a great heated jacuzzi. After we had seen the little crowded balconies of other so-called premium hotels of Oia, we felt so privileged with a terrace of this calmness and size. About the restaurant: wow! What delicious food. Greek traditional recipes, artistically changed into haute cuisine plates that we will definitely remember. With the view of the perfect sunset and everyone trying to make our dinner memorable. We also enjoyed reading why they named this restaurant “Alios Ilios”. Perfect fit! The breakfast, served in the nearby area was delicious too. The gym is another plus. Adequately large for the size of the hotel with top quality and very new equipment. Finally the free of charge private parking area. Not something that you’d bother to mention for a hotel in another area of Greece, amazingly rare and most useful though when in Santorini. All in all, Santo Maris gave us a real reason to want to come back to Santorini again and again. Thank you for everything great people of Santo Maris! Until we meet a)gain!
Where do I start?! The warm welcome with amazing fresh lemonade started our stay here and from them on it continues to surpass anything we could have imagined. The hotel is very near the centre of Oia, well connected by a direct private path that takes 5 minutes to walk but it’s a world away from the hustle and bustle. The sunset suites are amazing, very secluded with amazing hot tubs, comfortable sub loungers and the most incredible view that people literally walk hours to Oia to see. We didn’t need to worry about going into Oia for the sunset, we had it from our balcony in our hot tub. The food at breakfast, lunch and dinner is excellent. The chicken Gyros is our recommendation! The staff are lovely, so helpful and know the island very well, consistently recommending excellent things to do and places to eat. The only time we’d ever been sad at having to go home is from the Galápagos Islands but we were sad this morning, we really didn’t want to leave! What a dreamy experience, thank you to all at Santo Maris!
