Santo Miramare Hotel The Great: Location, on its own private beach, lots of bars & restaurants within few minutes walk Modern & clean Lovely clean pools (4 of them) Enough sun beds for everyone! Beds & brollies on beach are free to hotel guest. (Have heard charges of €50 at other sites on same beach) Reception staff are awesome, they speak brilliant English & will help you with any query. Rooms are clean & modern if a little sparse. Ideal location to explore the island Breakfast is good with lots of choice, staff on the whole are very pleasant. Beach towels changed every couple days The not so great: Prices at the pool bar are expensive, 5 minute walk away the prices are half the hotel or less. €3 for coke, €6 large beer in hotel. The breakfast area with fruit, juice & milk is a bit of a fiasco, needs spreading out a bit to help congestion. Our maid seemed to take ages cleaning the room & even then it wasn't great. TIPS There is a mini market 150yds to left of hotel at beach front. Large water only €0.50, €1.50 at pool bar. Cans Coke etc €1 here, €3 pool bar. You can bring drinks from outside & have by the pool or beach, will save a fortune. It's about a half hour walk to the far end of Perissa, dozens of bars / restaurants on the way. I recommend Noma which is 15 mins away. If you turn left at beach there is bigger choice, right at the beach several good bars / restaurants, Savvaas Popeye is good & reasonable. Forty One is great, but a bit pricey, €70 or more for 2. Do a trip to Fira, local buses run every 20 mins from stop on beach (don't use stop outside hotel, bit unreliable & takes half hour longer than stop on beach) Take a travel kettle if you want drink in the room (there is a mini fridge for milk etc) Also recommend sunset cruise & trip to Oia (pronounced ear) for the amazing sunsets. Recommendations for Santo Miramare Hotel: Please have "do not disturb" signs for the rooms, cheap & easy fix. Sort out the congestion at breakfast in the corner with fruit & juice Bibis is fantastic on reception, please recognise & reward him! Yannis & Yoto are brilliant at breakfast too Put some fabric softener in with the towels as they are a bit rough! Awesome hotel, very highly recommended
This hotel underwent refurbishment before the summer season. It is bright, clean and well maintained. The rooms reflect this and we were impressed with them. Rooms are cleaned daily, towels changed every other day. Pool/beach towels also provided from reception. Pool area is good. Always a sunbed available up until about 11. The beach is across the road. Two minutes walk from your room. Breakfasts are good. Would suggest going bed and breakfast as there are plenty of tavernas within 5 minutes walk of the hotel. Hotel staff are very friendly, polite and helpful. On the whole we found Santorini quite expensive, 6 euro for half a litre of beer, r euro in the tavernas. Whether it's just Santorini or credit I'm not sure plus euro exchange is rubbish. Otherwise would fully recommend the Miramare. Weather was great,blue skies everyday and 30c.
We stayed at the Miramare for a week, and found it exceeded our expectations. The whole complex is very clean and tidy. The rooms are quite minimalist but perfectly adequate for our needs. The decoration feels new. The pool area is well presented and the pool bar offers a good choice of food and drink. Breakfast was a bit same'ish, but we are not great morning eaters, so it was ok for us. The yogurt, fruit and honey were always to hand. Other people however thought the choice was limited. The location is very good, at the quieter end of the beach. Restaurants and bars within close walking. A little train runs along the front, which can be flagged down for a ride into Parrissa (about €8). If you walk it will take about 30 mins. Once there- a good choice of restaurants. The bus goes from Mera beach (10 min walk) into Thia, via Parrissa. Well worth €3 fare. It's easy, but they do run on Greek time! So, lovely hotel in a great location, with friendly staff.
We wanted to go somewhere special to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and we definitely found it at the Santo Miramare. The hotel was beautiful and all of the staff were fantastic. We stayed in a junior suite which had great views of the pool an sea. Breakfast was included and there was plenty of choice. Was also a joy not seeing all of the sunbeds reserved by 0800 in the morning. Even with the hotel being full there were always sunbeds available at the beach and by the pool. We definitely look forward to returning in the future.
Just loved the resort: very friendly and welcoming staff. Every small request was immediately attended to. Every corner from rooms,lobby and pool area was superclean. We loved the so typical Greek architecture and flair of the hotel.
Away from the touristic district of Oia, located this hotel with great service, clean and prety rooms and common areas and outstanding swimming pools. It is mostly mellow, romantic and calm and in the area you can find tons of great restaurants. Notice that it is located about 25 minutes ride from Fira and 40 minutes from Oia, therefore, these two main cities which you would probably want to visit are not in walking distance. It has a great beach outside the hotel.
Just returned after a week's stay in Santo Miramare Resort. The hotel is modern, set in beautiful surroundings and excellently located on the beach. The receptionist was polite and knowledgable - he gave us directions (20 minutes walk) oppose to taking the local bus to Emporio, a lovely nearby village and to the 8 windmills. The buffet breakfast had a good choice to cater for all tastes with daily fresh bread. All the staff were friendly and always smiling. Wonderful Hotel!
Friendly and helpful staff, nice and modern rooms, beautiful beach and pool area. Breakfast was good. If you dont't have dinner included there are some tasty restaurants around, try the Vega Restaurant, it's great.
We stayed here for 2 weeks and loved it. Hotel and gardens well laid out. Room fair size, but with side view and fairly dark because of tree outside balcony and not what we'd expected, so they kindly changed us to a more spacious room with sea and pool view in week 2. Rooms and hotel spotlessly clean. Even the wcs in pool area, in frequent use, were spotless. Breakfast buffet was varied and food good. Staff wonderful in every area of Hotel, all friendly and helpful. Waiters taught my daughter to speak Greek! Two main pools, one child pool and one Jacuzzi, all clean and inviting. We particularly appreciated the palm trees set out around the pool area. We lunched mostly at the Pool Bar - good choice of snacks, salads etc. We recommend it highly and will certainly come and stay again. Excellent value for money.
Nothing to complain about! Wonderful room,pools and staff... Clean,good breakfast,cleaning personal very nice...a good resort for the beach! We stay at the beach in the daytime and take a taxi from the Reception in the evening,going to visit!
