    What a find. I reviewed a lot of places in Santorini in the Oia area. We wanted to be near the town (yes it gets crowded with shoppers and those darn tourists...hmm). Anyway, we had 3 couples and the Esperas was great for the value and location. Okay, its built into the cliff and the rooms are cave like which really adds to character of the place. We had a very nice and sizeable room especially compared to many small European hotels. The bed was super comfortable for us and there was plenty of room to move around. Esperas though stands out for much more though. First, the service from every single staff member was outstanding. From the driver that met us at the ferry port to the porters who took our luggage, to the front desk folks, servers, house keeping and bartenders, . we had great services. They were so friendly and helpful. A big thank you to the porters. They earn every dollar for their efforts in bringing luggage down a whole bunch of steps to registration and to your room. You are on the side of a cliff! Don't forget to tip them for their efforts as well as the rest of the staff. The front desk was also helpful with restaurant recommendations. We actually ran into George the owner in from of a restaurant and he spoke to the owners to really take care of us. (Skala). But as you read many of the reviews you will read about the views and they are stunning for sure. Enjoy an unobstructed sunset view from your balcony or the pool with a drink or early dinner. Outstanding!

    My husband and I just got back home from a babymoon at the beautiful Esperas Santorini. Arrival: The airport or port pickup and luggage transport is an absolute must! It is 45 euros each way, which is comparable to a cab in price and so much more convenient. To get that famous Oia sunset view, you have to climb many stairs, and trust me, you can’t do it alone. You will be amazed at how capable the luggage handlers are. Please tip these guys well! Check in: The moment you arrive, they welcome you with refreshing juice, show you your room, and give you the lay of the land. The reception is helpful and friendly, and we had no trouble booking restaurant reservations and excursions through them. Staff: I cannot say enough good things about the staff. They are so kind and caring. While there, my wife had a medical emergency and had to go to the ER three times. They arranged transportation in the middle of the night and were so compassionate. We are so grateful. The room: We stayed in 117, a 2-bedroom sunset view with plunge pool. The main bedroom was a king sized bed nestled in a cozy, white, relaxing cave. Ahhh. The other bedroom, which we didn’t use, had 2 twin beds. The patio was lovely! The plunge pool was a bit smaller than expected. The view: It is SPECTACULAR. You will feel like VIP watching the view from your own private balcony while the rest of the city is crowded around nearby streets. Grab a bottle of champagne, relax on your porch, and enjoy the view

    Greece Excursion 2019

    The stay at Esperas Santorini was wonderful. The staff was truly accomodating, the views were 'to die for', the location was everything and the suite made you feel like you were living in a very traditional Greek house. I traveled with my husband and two best friends and we had a blast! Santorini was the last island on our Greece excursion which included Athens and Mykonos. All three were very different experiences... but all were fantastic. I'd recommend Esperas Hotel but would preface that recommendation with 'be ready and able to climb steep stairs' during your stay. All-in-all, Santorini was a great island to visit and part of that feeling came from staying at the Esperas Hotel.

    The view from the hotel is absolutely beautiful! We had a lovely 2 bedroom suite with 2 bathrooms (one bathroom was very small), a private terrace and plunge pool. Breakfast was served daily on our terrace (you can have it served in the restaurant if you wish to). The staff was lovely (Vicki, Nicole) and helped with reservations, suggestions for activities (a private boat ride to the caldera is cheaper than group tours and much more flexible), scheduling rides. The property is located on the cliff with direct view of the sunset over the water but there are a lot of steps but there is staff to carry your luggage from the road to your room. The hotel is on one end of Oia and maybe 5-10 minute walk to the busy main (pedestrian) street but we felt safe walking back at night and it was nice not to be around the noise and throng of visitors. We had a delicious dinner in the hotel restaurant which also has fabulous views of the sunset. The main pool has 2 little side "caves" for swimming if one wants to stay out of the sun. You can find photos of the hotel on its website.

    The views from our room was spectacular! The staff was very helpful. Felt very bad for the porters who had to take the luggages up the steep stairs. One issue was lack of vegetarian options at the restaurant, but foods was good.
