Recent guest reviews

Myself and my husband stayed in Tholos resort for 3 nights from July 1st, we also stayed in the sister resort Dome which was great! The service from margarita & Simon was perfect & Demetrius in Dome ! Rooms were amazing and the view was unbelievable ! The breakfast was of such good quality and the swimming area had a perfect view . For the short stay that we stayed there our expectations were exceeded and the staff did everything they could to make us feel welcome ! I highly recommend staying in this hotel and we will definitely be going back in the winter time ! Big thankyou to Demetrius from Dome resort who helped us find a room after we had a disaster hotel that we were staying in, and he turned our holiday perfect ! Thankyou Tholos & Dome !!

We booked late and found Tholos. Never having been to Santorini before, we weren't sure where we wanted to stay, other than knowing we wanted to be on the Caldera side. Imervovigi is a great central location for doing anything. Oia is nice to visit, but we are glad we stayed where we did (and the sunset view is just as stunning). This hotel gave us the cliffside experience we wanted (I read some people complaining about the steps -- not sure what they were expecting, but it added to our experience). It was very clean and bright, but allowed us to completely block out the sun for sleeping. It was not super luxurious, but very comfortable. We had no problems to address, but I have no doubt that the staff would have attended to them quickly. We had a stunning view from our terrace and even from inside the room. The hotel has endless places (in addition to your room) to view the sunset. They offer breakfast delivered to your room each morning. They were always right on time and the food was pleasant. The only downside for us was that Tholos seems to have a family-friendly reputation. It appeared there were more kids at Tholos than at nearby hotels. All the kids were very well behaved, but our room (as with many others) was right over the pool deck. So any attempt at relaxation on the deck seemed more like playing at the pool. That was also true with the restaurant. Otherwise, we had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The reception staff helped us design a great couple of days. We'd be happy to return

Had a short 2 day stay at Tholos. It's located mid way between Fira & Oia & has an amazing view of the Caldera and the Skora rock. We had booked a Deluxe suite with pvt outdoor jacuzzi. It had 2 bedrooms including one for the kids. A bit compact due to its cave theme so if you have too much luggage could be a bit cramped. Luckily we didn't so were good. Breakfast is served in the balcony at the time you choose and you eat in style overlooking the bay-an astounding view. One tip - do specify the portions you want clearly for the breakfast. The hotel is about 5 mins walk from the main road but with the staff taking care of the luggage not an issue. The bus stop is about 7 mins way away and you can go to Fira (for the main terminus)or Oia (for the sunset views). The staff was helpful and ready to help. Will definitely recommend this hotel to stay with family. While most of the others seemed to be couples for whom this would be amazing it's good for families too.

I stayed at tholos resort from 6/26 until 6/30. The memories at tholos resort were fantastic. The stunning caldera view and beautiful sunset are unforgettable. I have had some problems with my trip with my child, but I am grateful to Margaret for his kindly response. The staff are very friendly and relaxed. It is likely that I will go back to tholos again if I visit santorini again. Thank you. Margaret. Amy's dad.

We have just had the most amazing time. From the minute we arrived we were treated like queens, everyone made sure we had every thing we needed, the room was perfect, the view was incredible. We would like to mention Dimitri for being the best bar tender, your cocktails and friendly nature are perfect. Panos you made sure we wanted for nothing, from moving our umbrella, setting the perfect table for dinner so we could see the sunset and your eye for detail is impeccable. We wished we didnt have to leave. We were also treated to salsa dancing lessons on our last night next to the bar, what fun. Hope you are all still there when we return. (Sorry our bags were so heavy Simon and thanks for arranging our boat trip, such a fun day) Margarita, thanks for your friendly smile on arrival and making sure we needed for nothing. You guys are the best, your boss should be proud. Xx Jenny and Kim Sydney Australia

After lots of researches we finally found a hotel that agreed to host us for 1 week with our 10-months old little boy. We could not find a better place for us to stay in Santorini! The hotel is great, the staff at the reception is so kind, we just loved our stay here! The hotel is nested in the little peaceful village of Imerovigli so that once you are in your room, you do not feel at the hotel but more in a small house as part of the rest of the village, living like Greek people! You can choose to have your meals in the restaurant or stay in the room and have everything delivered at the time you have chosen… they even prepared adapted meals with fresh vegetables/fruits for our son each day… this was just amazing! The room was really big (private villa with private indoor swimming pool and private outdoor Jacuzzi and caldera view), and the little pool/Jacuzzi on the terrace was really a plus! You can also trust all staff’s pieces of advice concerning the different spots to visit on the island, they were very accurate and efficient. So thank you very much for your kindness and making us feel like home, we will not forget and certainly recommend your hotel to people who might be interested in travelling to Santorini! The hotel also has a private driver; if you plan your visits on time, he will drive you anywhere on the island and pick you up at the time you want (even if it sometimes slightly vary according to traffic jams which are frequent on the island). We found this a plus, since we did not want to take the bus with our little son for the reasons you can imagine. The island is beautiful, the landscapes are breathtaking, the Greeks are great people and we were everywhere welcome. Nothing to do with the hotel, but note nevertheless that if you are travelling with a child that cannot walk yet and you want to make excursions, be ready to wear him/her or foresee a carrying system since there are a lot of stairways and paved trails that are impracticable with a baby stroller!

Stayed at Tholos for 1 night during May 2017. The Check-in was smooth with the Reception staff being very pleasant and friendly. She showed us around the Hotel and the room facilities and also got us early check-in. The Hotel is conveniently located in Imerovigli and has beautiful views of the Aegean Sea and Skaros Rock. The morning breakfast in the Balcony was really wonderful. Considering our short time at the resort we didn't get to enjoy the pool and the restaurant. The Hotel requires quite some walking from the road as the passage would require coming down steep steps. Only suggestion was few of the steps moving down to the rooms were very uneven compared to the other steps which lead me to a minor bruise on the leg.

Spent 4 nights at the Tholos Resort in mid June staying in the basic room. It was very comfortable and really liked the "cave" style. Breakfast was ok. The tiniest croissants I've ever seen! But so beautiful sitting on the balcony watching the amazing view. Loved the pool area and especially the wonderful Dimitris and Panos. Dimitris, the barman, is an expert cocktail maker. The best pina coladas ever!! Just tell him what flavours you like and he'll create something wonderful for you. Together with Panos, the restaurant manager, they make a charming and very professional team. We had many interesting chats with them and shared lots of laughs. They certainly made our stay at the Tholos lots of fun. Thankyou also to the wonderful guy who carried our very heavy bags up to our airport shuttle. We are so happy we chose the Tholos for our Santorini stay. Perfect position overlooking Skaros Rock and in between Oia and Fira. Would thoroughly recommend.

My husband and I had such a wonderful experience at Tholos! We had the last part of our honeymoon there and enjoyed it very much!! Laura and Margarita were both very friendly and helpful! Plus having breakfast delivered to your room is quite luxurious! The best part was the was incomprehensible!! Beyond romantic and comfortable.

Best sunset, Oia is a bit overrated. Tholos is a great spot and the staff Visit (Bell Desk), Margaret(Reception), Dummy(pool bar) and Niko(food) were all awesome. The great thing is they are genuine ly good at their job and they keep it real. Will go back there because of them
