We had a wonderful stay at this boutique hotel. Wonderful staff from GM Gregg and all the others Including Eugine by the pool who was a star. All of this topped off but the most amazing sea views you could imagine. A perfect hotel for a relaxing holiday or romantic break

Love the view , awesome property , very quite and serene. Staff is very friendly ,special mention for Christina , very charming ,very helpful . Best place in Fira to stay . It has free shuttle to the main city centre. The spa is also very very good. Masseuse Aris is very very good.

Wish I could give this place more than 5 stars! Chose this hotel on the strength of TA reviews, and wasn't disappointed. One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in, with incredible staff. The views are amazing; you simply can't take your eyes off them, and every room has this superb view. We chose a basic room, which had a lovely terrace overlooking the caldera. It was perfect, but wish we could have afforded one with a private pool! The pool area is fab, although the water, like most, is unheated. The sun loungers are comfy, and the lovely pool girl could not do enough for us. We ate from the snack menu, which was great. The pool area is quiet, as many rooms have private pools. Breakfast is simply amazing! You choose from different set menus the night before, but can also add additional items such as bacon, eggs, fruit, crepes etc. The food was plentiful and superb quality. We didn't want to leave the hotel and so also ate there both nights we were there too. The food was again of a very high standard. We had a complimentary 15 minute massage from Miss Sofia, and then booked a couples massage for the day we left. The massage was great, and done outdoors. The hotel is about 2 miles from Thira, but we didn't leave the hotel to visit as we had spent 5 days in the town already. I honestly didn't want to leave the hotel. The staff are all super friendly and helpful, from the check in staff, to the restaurant staff, the pool staff, cleaners and the driver that took us to the airport. As for thr hotel manager Greg.....just where do I start? You know it's a unique hotel when the manager bothers to get to know you personally, and escorts you to your transport when you leave, and says goodbye with a hug and his business card! We are now Facebook friends. We loved spending time with him and hearing his stories (although his language is not for the faint hearted!) and would definitely follow him to stay in any other hotel he ever manages. His attention to detail and customer service is second to none. You are doing a fab job Greg......just keep doing what you are doing and let us know where we need to go next! Thanks for making our holiday unforgettable!

We spent a week at this beautiful hotel with breathtaking views. Though the hotel is great it's the friendly attentive staff who really make it special.. Great customer service and a relaxed atmosphere are clearly a priority. Nothing is ever too much trouble and we were made to feel like we were the only guests. By the end of the holiday we felt we had made many new friends. The pool is incredibly relaxing, fantastic views and a member of staff on hand to attend to your every need. The spa offers fantastic treatments and is outside so a very tranquil experience. I can recommend the hydrating facial after a day in the sun. We were lucky enough to have some complimentary facials and foot massages from Sofia whilst lounging on our sun beds. Bliss. Amazing views of the sunset each evening from just about any part of the hotel. We enjoyed a cocktail most evenings whilst watching the sun go down. If you stay at Petit Palace you won't be disappointed.

We stayed at the Petit for our honeymoon and couldn’t be happier with the experience. All the staff is wonderful - very friendly and attentive. Great restaurant, pool and of course the views! The hotel feels very quiet and private, even at full capacity.

This place is lovely. A stunning view from our room. The room was enormous really clean and well maintained. Nice pool for swimming. Had a meal in restaurant which was excellent as was breakfast. Staff could not have been more helpful and attentive. Bit quiet where it was located but easy walk to Fira of 20 minutes and bus outside hotel.

My husband and I recently stayed at this property with our 2.5yo daughter for 4 nights and it was amazing! The rooms were clean and beautiful- ours had our own little pool that our daughter loved. The staff - especially Christina, Mariana, Greg, and Ares (and the massage therapist I can’t remember her name!) were WONDERFUL! They welcomed my daughter with open arms and treated her so well, like a princess! They were also very accommodating and helpful with car rental, reservations, and recommendation. I highly recommend this place and we will definitely be staying there again.

My husband and I checked into the Petit Palace about a week ago. The hotel location and aesthetic is simply amazing. The views are breathtaking. We stayed in the honeymoon suite, where our every need was taken care of. The champagne breakfasts each morning on the terrace facing the caldera was plentiful and delicious. My husband and I had all the privacy we needed on the corner of the hotel. Cristina, Ares and Greg were so very accommodating to our every want and need. From restaurant recommendations and car rentals, the staff took care of us. To the staff, we are eternally grateful for making our stay so memorable. We will return!

We stayed here for 3 days during our honeymoon and the staff made our stay so magical. They were all so welcoming and helpful, and the views really topped it off! The hotel offers a free shuttle into Fira town centre throughout the whole day, although if you’re feeling up for it, is about a 30 minute walk to town. We stayed in the honeymoon suite and although was so beautiful, our room did not have a shower curtain or block out blinds so we had to close the external shutters each night. Aside from these, this hotel was just perfect and we can’t express our thanks enough to all the staff here at Petit Palace! This place will forever be etched in our minds as a beautiful memory

We stayed here for 3 nights and my husband and I just loved it. When you arrive the entrance to the hotel is so grand and the view awaits you. The staff are all amazing, extremely helpful and very welcoming. They constantly check in to make sure your stay is 100% perfect. Lots of little extras like welcome drinks, 15min free massage etc. When the day spa therapist isn’t busy with treatments she is finding you around the pool area offereing free hydration to an area of your choice. The breakfast options are abundant and all options are delicious. Our room was beautiful and the view from every aspect of this hotel is incredible. We loved hanging out here and wanted to stay at the hotel rather than venture about the island. Would love to go back!
