Our rental car agent referred us to this spot if we wanted sandwiches and more. We had to stop by for the last day and it was definitely worth it! Quaint little restaurant upstairs and they offered a little bit of everything. My husband had a delicious kebab plate with the warmest and most moist pita I’ve ever had. I ordered the lamb chops which were juicy and flavorful and we shared a Santorini salad. After days of eating dry fried food in some places, this was a welcome respite! Beware - the portions are huge! That salad could have been a whole meal itself! Do yourself a favor and get some fresh squeezed juice too. It was so tasty! I can’t say enough about this place. Definitely with a visit for lunch if you have the time!

Fantastic. White clean buildings inside and out nice little bar area 4 pools nice spa food good Nothing bad to say its lovely go treat yourself. Nice 10 minute. Walk in to main town Lovely hilltop location. With little walks around the shops and restaurants though tightly. Woven streets Go see it's an holiday You will not forget .go say hello to my friend in the old jazz bar . Regards Graham

Had a quick night stop at this hotel, with a late evening checkin and an early morning checkout to catch a flight. So, all we got were a few hours at this property. But, it seemed beautiful in the evening when the premises were lit up and the rooms were pretty comfortable as well. Didn't get a chance to dine here, so can't comment on the food.

We stayed for 2 weeks at the El Greco and couldn’t fault anything. Part way through our stay, we even booked to go back again the following year. Reception and staff were very friendly and always helpful. No coffee or tea making facilities, but you can ask for a kettle and cups at reception at no extra charge. We always take teabags with us. Superior twin room was spotlessly clean with towels and bed linen changed every day. Our room had a balcony at the front and a huge one to the side. Resort has 5 pools but we were glad we were in the quiet area away from blaring music. Breakfast was in plentiful supply and constantly being topped up. Fira is only a short 5 minute walk away with a vast array of restaurants to choose from, The ones we tried were excellent. Be prepared to pay more for one overlooking the sea but there are plenty that are reasonable with the same views! Ice creams out of this world too. Oia is a lovely place but very busy during sunset. You can see the sunset from the front of the hotel anyway. Wonderful stay and would recommend without hesitation.

The hotel area is really lovely. The hotel consists of several beautiful buildings that create a lovely village like feel. Our room was simple, but clean and quite okay. Breakfast was adequate, but nothing to write home about. At times the breakfast room/terrace felt a bit too crowded and the loud music that was played there didn’t help. The hotel has many lovely swimming pools (5!) and some of them are quite quiet so we could almost always find a peaceful spot with free sunbeds even though it was high season. Not many sunbeds had shades though, which was a minor flaw. Location was okay, an easy walk to town centre but no spectacular caldera views. The staff were helpful and friendly. All in all a good hotel, but if I was planning a very special visit to Santorini (like a honeymoon) I wouldn’t stay here.

We stayed here for 4 nights and the hotel was beautiful, nothing to fault! I wonder if in the peak season they have another resaturant as our only option was a small buffet restaurant, food was nice but nothing special, would have loved more options. Staff were fantastic, especially reception staff they couldn't help us any more and were great at recommending restaurants etc. Pools were freezing and I mean actually ice cold, we managed to have a little dip one day as weather was gorgeous we used it to dip our feet and cool off. Hats off to the people who were actually swimming! Fab time would definitely recommend and return. Excellent location.

Lovely rooms with a nice individual small cosy sitting area outside of your unit. Lucky for us we have a full view of the full moon from our sitting area at night which was awesome. Place is huge so depending on your room location u might need to use their inhouse shuttle to get to your room unit. There are 2 areas for the breakfast buffet depending where your room is. Also with 2 swimming pool area. The swimming pool area is really awesome with outdoor chillout sofa/lounge area. Rooms are clean and big however our shower wasn't too great with low water pressure. Overall great place and just a 10 mins walk to town and nearby supermarket, very convenient.

Very beautiful resort type setting, five nice swimming pools. room was very specious with fine details in decoration.Nice front porch with comfortable chairs overlooking swimming pool. Front desk was very helpful for WIFI & other help.Quality breakfast. Help to take the bags to room & to bring them back in the golf cart like vehicle was very helpful. only 10 minutes walk from town of Fira where plenty of shopping & restaurant.

This was by far the best hotel we stayed in during our vacation to Greece! The rooms were amazing, as was the entire resort. They had approximately 5 pools on their premises, a nice bar and restaurant, A buffet breakfast was included in our package and it was always very good. The staff was amazing and this resort was operated with perfection. They had a spa on site which my husband and I both took advantage of with some awesome massages. It was a short walk from the main part of town for shopping and dining, however taxi rides were also reasonable. The last day we rented a car and drove around the island to some of the beaches, winerys, bars, etc. Truly an wonderful experience!!

A lovely place to stay at because it is near the main road yet it is quiet such that you can get a good night's sleep. Rooms are clean and staff are very friendly and helpful. You can swim in any of their pools and they have 2 restaurants on opposite sides of the hotel grounds.This is so that guests do not have to walk too far have their breakfast. The breakfast spread is decent but if you were to stay for an extended period there, as with any other hotels, the breakfast spread can get boring.
