Recent guest reviews

My husband and I LOVED Carpe Diem, we stayed here on our first stop of our honeymoon. The owner and his team are truly passionate about this hotel and go above and beyond for their guests. The hotel itself is stunning and the views are incredible. I would definitely stay here again and that is coming from someone who never visits the same place twice. Every morning Thrasos would ask what are plans were for the day and gave us suggestions and tips which was so helpful! Thrasos was my absolute favorite. He along with the rest of the hotel employees were there for us with whatever we needed. Everyone was so friendly and polite. My husbands favorite part was the chocolates left by our bedside each night. Santorini was such a dream and Carpe Diem was the perfect place to stay on our visit.

What an amazing place the Carpe Diem resort on Santorini is. Absolute luxury in a great location. What really made the difference and made us feel very special was the level of service and attention from Thrasos and his team who made our stay the most relaxing and memorable trip. I would absolutely recommend a stay here!

Beautiful place, gorgeous views, convenient location. The service was excellent and all people very friendly! The breakfast is delicious with fresh products and different home made pie every day! Totally recommended!

My husband and I just left the wonderful Carpe Diem in Pyrgos and we miss it already. What a stunning boutique hotel, from the moment we arrived we were warmly welcomed with a fresh lemonade by Thrasos, who showed us the property and our suite. THE ROOM WOW, this is definitely the biggest suite we have ever been in in Santorini. Huge room with a beautiful decor and the bathroom was a dream, with an amazing tub. The balcony was very private and it's definitely worth it to book the room with a heated pool. We loved spending our evenings there. We come to Santorini often for work, and the wi-fi was very important to us. This hotel has the best wi-fi i've ever found in Santorini, and we were perfectly able to work from the hotel and especially from our room. The rooms are super clean, and we really appreciated receiving two bottles of water with a chocolate every night, such a nice little touch :) Also loved the big Mac screen in our room and the phone that they provide in every room is so so useful, as you can call anywhere in the world for free. BREAKFAST Plenty of choice for breakfast, and we loved trying different dishes every day. Amazing food, from a great variety of eggs to bread, jams, fruit salads, cereals, typical greek dishes and much more. Do treat yourself to the champagne breakfast one day as it's so worth it :) HOTEL & LOCATION The hotel is very relaxing, spacious, with a gorgeous infinity pool overlooking the island. It's secluded and romantic away from all the chaos you see in Fira. I loved staying here as it's more authentic and you are a few minutes away from Pyrgos, a lovely authentic village that you must visit. You can still easily visit all the other touristic places which are only a short drive away. STAFF All the staff was very friendly, attentive and kind. We loved meeting Sotiris, the hotel manager and owner who was so kind in answering all our questions, giving us the best recommendations and at the same time was a pleasure finding out more about his family who passionately built this hotel. A must stay in Santorini. Everything was perfect and we will most certainly be back next year. Thanks for everything, Roberta & Nico

If I could plan our honeymoon over and over, I wouldn’t change a single thing about our trip to Santorini. Staying at Carpe Diem Exclusive Boutique Resort was the best decision! We stayed for 7 nights and their team always made sure we felt welcomed and exceeded our expectations every day. We landed around 10:35pm the first night and Carpe Diem arranged for someone to pick us up from the airport and take us to the property. They did the same thing for our early 6am departing flight. Every detail did not go unnoticed: the chocolates and water on our bedside, cleaning service twice a day with new towels, lanterns by the poolside for a lighted walkway, dinner tables moved inside for less wind, complimentary breakfast, etc. Those are the things that matter to us! We never felt like we were asking for too much and that’s usually hard to say with me involved! To Thrasos - you are a true friend and we will never forget you! Between the restaurant tips, directions to here and there, small talk and laughter, you made us feel more like locals and not tourists - exactly what we wanted, THANK YOU! To the Owner - you have done outstanding! The property is secluded and in the perfect location - not far from anywhere else at all and the views are spectacular! You have the sunrise on one side, and sunset on the other. It’s adults only and every room has a pool! We can’t thank y’all enough. Whether you are staying 3 nights or a week, this is the place to be - Carpe Diem truly has it all!

We had 4 nights at Carpe Diem and relly enjoyed it. The suites are beautiful and the service excellent. It is small and special, without the tourist crowd you find elsewhere on Santorini. A really good restaurant at Carpe Diem, but also short walking distance to all the restaurants in pittoresque Pyrgos. The breakfasts are very special. No buffet, but you order the dishes you want, specially made for you.

we spent a week during september to 18 to 25 in this beautiful and beautiful hotel. the setting and pleasant and calm, the view overlooking the whole island is cut the breath. the staff and helpful and attentive, and to the little care for us. the breakfast is incredibly plentiful and delicious. In short, a big thank you for the welcome and a stay in paradise Nico & Lucie

Overall an excellent stay in a lovely facility. Suite was great, very authentic and with all that we needed and kept very clean. Staff all very helpful and looked after us extremely well. Loved PYRGOS as very quiet and managed to eat at BOGARDO, Selene MEZE, KASTELLI, which were all good. You get used to the steep climb on hotel access road but would not suit those who find walking up very steep hills a struggle. We hired car for 2 days to see rest of island within a 7 day stay. Minor points that need attention by hotel are cold pools which like others we agree need some heating as you are paying a rate to include this facility as it is used to attract customers and they need to improve hot drinks at breakfast as we kept having to ask for new tea and coffee pots as not hot enough. Ate in hotel 2 nights and food very good although limited choice.

The perfect location, with stunning views, Carpe Diem is a little piece of paradise. Breakfast on the terrace or sipping a glass of wine in the evening and looking across the island was magical. Quiet and peaceful away from the tourist bustle of the island, it was the perfect location from which to xplore. Just a short walk to the nearby hilltop town of Pyrgos with its narrow streets, ancient history and wonderful restaurants. The staff at Carpe Diem was truely outstanding. Friendly yet professional , nothing was too much trouble and attention to detail was incredible....from arranging restaurant bookings or day trips, full of helpful advice to make the best of our short stay. Thank you to you all!

This has to be the most beautiful picturesque hotel I have ever stayed in. The staff are amazing esp Thaisos nothing is too much trouble from drawing maps to guide you to the most perfect places to suggesting places to eat. I cant wait to return, they made our honeymoon pefect!
