Petit Palace

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

First of all, it is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places to stay at Santorini. You could spend an entire day at the property itself, without even stepping out to explore Oia or any other nearby attraction. Actually, that's what me and my wife did. The suites are beautiful, with a private infinity pool overlooking the cliff. The rooms are well-equipped with everything one might need, and the staff is pretty prompt at helping you out. Had a very memorable stay at this place.

Absolutely beautiful hotel & stunning location. Rooms were clean and comfortable...views from the room were gorgeous! All of the staff were friendly & helpful. Hotel is in a great location to catch the bus or walk along the island to other cities. Santorini & Petite Palace was the highlight of our trip to Italy & Greece. Would definitely stay again!

Actually I visited this place on November 2016 with my friends. Thanks to her I could stayed at this gem! The place was stunning and everything is great! At first, I couldn’t recognized where is the front door, even google map showed I was standing right on the hotel!! Nice concept! Staffs was also friendly, they gave us brief explanation about what we could do at Santorini. There’s also shuttle bus to airport and Thira! Breakfast and room design was great! This is the best hotel experience I ever had!

This was by far the best place we stayed on Santorini. The views were stunning. The service was topnotch. It was a bit pricey, but still seemed like decent value for the views and service. We had our own small pool in which we could soak while taking in views of the Caldera. Highly recommend.

From the moment we walked in we were blown away. The views are postcard perfect 24/7. Upon arrival we were recommended to go to a Greek night at the sister hotel, which was only 2mins walk. What a fabulous night / experience. The hotel also recommended a catamaran cruise for our final night, highly recommended. Before going on the catamaran we decided to have a massage at the hotel, there is truly no better way to have treated ourselves. We will be returning next year, this hotel is what dreams are made of.

I LOVED the Petit Palace Suites! Our room had a private pool with an amazing view! The staff there is extremely helpful and friendly. The entire place is very clean and beautiful. The breakfast was okay but everything else made up for it. The hotel helped us rent an ATV to check out the town and it was fantastic. We were only here a few days but I hope to return some day soon. It's truly amazing!

Customer service was exceptional - very helpful and accommodating. Room was very nice and the views awesome. Since it was October - late afternoons on the balcony were warm and comfortable - great place to watch the sunset.

This is one of our many trips to Santorini, it holds a special place in our hearts as we were married here many years ago. We have been able to stay in nice accomodations on our previous visits but I have to say we have finally found our "forever' accomodation for our future visits to the beautiful Çalderra of Santorini. The Calderra views are amazing wherever you stay but the view from the Petite Palace is uninterrupted, the sunset till the end. We stayed in the Grand Suite for 17 days and wished we could of stayed longer. Experiencing the true cave room with beautiful styling, king size bed, lounge room and the large bathroom with a jacuzzi and a 24/7 view to die for, is something that we look forward to on our return. Our dining experiences were wonderful, the food is so fresh and the menu has something for everyone and we believe it to be 5 star, breakfast can be served in the privacy of your room or take in the view from the dining room, the menu offers so many different choices and the food is prepared when you request it so it is always fresh. We spent many days lazing by the pool, being treated at the pool bar and the complimentary massages while you relax, thankyou Sophia. Other afternoons spent having massages on the edge of the Calderra in peace and quiet, so tranquil, thankyou Pamela. We enjoyed our afternoon cocktails at the outdoor lounge room watching the sunset, discussing our plans for the next day. So what makes this place different to the rest that we have stayed at on our trips...... The staff..... From the moment we walked through the entrance we were greeted by Nefeli and a sangria welcome drink. We sat down in the upstairs lounge and although we know alot about Santorini her explanation of the island was informative and well explained. We then were introduced to Joyce who took us to our room and made us feel so special. If you want to organise any day trips, taxis, recommendations for restaurants etc Nefeli, Joyce and Fani will look after you and nothing is a problem for them. The Al aCarte dining is professional thanks to Nikos, Kris, Costa and Demi who respond to your every request. We chose to have the private dining experience for our anniversary which was amazing, 5 courses with explanation of each course of ingrediants and how it is cooked, thankyou Chef and kitchen staff. All the staff are professional and very polite and interested in ensuring your stay with them is memorable. We are already saving for our next trip and would highly recommend the Petite Palace for your stay in Santorini.

My now wife and I and a couple of friends of ours spent a week here and everything was absolutely amazing!! I started conversing with Nefeli, guest relations mgr, about doing a surprise proposal and wedding and she helped me with getting a photographer and also someone to do the ceremony. Our flight was 4hrs late and lost our luggage so we were very stressed out about that and Nefeli, Minas, and everybody that worked in the lobby called at least once to try to help us locate our luggage. They were so helpful in planning our day trips and just helping with all the details of this huge surprise! The breakfast food was absolutely unbelievable for coming with the price of our room. Let me tell you about the views, worth every cent we spent and more, which was very inexpensive since it was close to end of their season. The shuttle was nice to have since we did not want to rent a car for trips into Fira. We ended up having an absolutely perfect day of weather for our big day and we were able to get The most beautiful pictures of the proposal and wedding as the sun was setting right after the ceremony was finished. Thank you so much Nefeli, Minas, Dina, Chris, and everybody else for making our stay so memorable!!

My partner and I have just returned from 4 nights here, celebrating our 10year anniversary. Even though we'd seen the website pictures of the view from the 'front door', when you arrive and see it for yourself it is jaw dropping! OMG, it is so amazing!! We were welcomed by a lady on reception, given a glass of something bubbly and had the hotel and the island explained to us. Our room (115) was lovely, although the front seating area was not actually 'private' as there was a walkway right in front of our room to the rooms alongside. This was a little disappointing as I was expecting a 100% private balcony. The room was large, with a jaccouzi bath and very clean. Breakfasts were exceptional, we could chose from 4 different breakfast combinations, one with a glass of champagne included. The breakfast room had only about 8 tables and we were lucky enough to get a window table 3 out of 4 mornings and the view was spectacular. The weather was lovely, perfect for visiting the islands sites but we had very stormy winds 2 nights (no fault of the hotel of course!!) which made it feel a little scary walking down the steep steps from the street!! There is a lift so it was optional to either walk down lots of steps to our room on the bottom floor or use the lift. As the evening's were much cooler (last few days in October) it was too cold to sit outside in the hotel's outside seating areas. Would have been nice to have had an indoor 'lounge' area for the colder/windy evenings. That's my only criticism though! We will definitely be back! The whole island is beautiful and it was great going out of season as less crowded. Sunsets from the hotel are wonderful, and much more romantic being in our own rather than in a crowded street!!
