Just beautiful! Superb views, gorgeous setting, extremely helpful and friendly staff, cute and comfortable accommodation (we stayed in a studio, which was surprisingly roomy and had everything we needed for a 2 night stay - appreciated the complimentary bottle of wine too!), nice pool, and liked the buffet breakfast which had a good choice. Mostly we just adored the setting - perched on the cliffs with stunning views over the sea, right in the heart of Oia yet managing to be tucked away from the passing daytrippers and tourists, so the main background noise was the soothing 'swish' of the waves below. With our own private terrace overlooking the sunset, equipped with sun loungers and a table and chairs to eat al fresco if we wished. Wonderful!! Would definitely recommend for a romantic getaway (although you do need to be able to negotiate the many steps - not for the physically challenged). Oia is one of the prettiest places we saw on the island, even with the throng of tourists it is possible to find a peaceful corner to relax in. The little port of Amoudi is cute and the fresh fish in the restaurant was excellent (although very expensive!). We also found a nice place nearby to swim from the rocks (as the beach nearby did not suit us - very rocky and the waves were a little too rough to tempt us in). The weather at the end of Sep was still hot and sunny, with a refreshing sea breeze.
No problems at all with the hotel! Absolutely loved everything! Regarding location, those looking for a 'beach' holiday may be disappointed, as it is quite a hike down the hill to the sea, (or rather the return journey back up the hill is quite strenuous, although fun, dodging the donkeys/mules which have not yet learned how to give way to pedestrians!) Overall though, it is difficult to find fault with anything: The views from the hotel alone are so breathtaking that we didn't want to leave our peaceful corner of paradise...
The staff was incredibly accommodating - calling the airline for us when our flight was cancelled due to a strike and preparing a breakfast for us for our 5 am departure. I can't say enough about the great location and incredible staff!
Location, location, location! This hotel has it all. The hotel is beautiful and the views amazing. The staff is friendly and very helpful with dinner recommendations or whatever you need. We are planning another trip to Santorini just to stay at Esperas!
The beautiful views, traditional room, swimming pool and very nice staff.
This place was absolutely amazing. The best view of the caldera in Oia, the most friendly and helpful staff, and the most relaxing environment/ambiance. If you are looking for the best place to stay in Santorini, definitely stay here.
The staff was incredible, more than helpful and more than friendly. The setting is spectacular. Although we were not honeymooners, we could see why one would choose this place to have privacy, beauty and romance.We will be spreading the word.
The air conditioning didn't work. When I finally mentioned it, they brought a fan which was a big improvement.
This hotel's staff and services were excellent! Location, breakfast, poolside, room service...everything was perfect. Especially I've never seen such a wonderful Sunset from private terrace !!!
Wi-fi connection is sometimes bad.
The location and design of the hotel was absolutely stunning. Our room had its own private balcony and had a superb view of the Aegean Sea. The village of Oia was within 5 minutes by walk and had great choices for restaurants. The room was spacious and the small kitchenette added a personal touch. The staff were extremely warm and helpful.
More variety in the breakfast buffet would have been nice
The location of the hotel, on the edge of Oia, is fantastic. Despite the steps and winding path that lead to the hotel, the view and quality of Esperas Traditional Houses make it all worthwhile. The hotel is located in a quiet and private part of town, but a mere 8-10 minutes walk from the lively shops and restaurants in Oia. It also has a shortcut path down to the fishing village of Amoudi which is MUCH recommended. The suite we had was wonderful - clean, spacious and cozy, with a private balcony that overlooks the bay. View was absolutely amazing, especially during sunset. Breakfast was buffet style and food was reasonable. Hotel staff definitely friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend Esperas :)
Beautiful views, beautiful room with private balcony. The staff was very courteous, friendly and helpful.
There was nothing we didn't like.
A truly beautiful setting. Esperas fits perfectly with the Santorini traditional structures, but is new and modern. It is the staff that sets this place apart, however. Each one seemed committed to making it a nice stay. I have traveled extensively, but have yet to find a hotel/resort with better service. They helped set up an excursion with a group that had recently opened for business - at my asking. The food for the included breakfast and poolside/room service, was among the best we had on a 3 week trip around Greece. I was surprised. Not for the disabled, the room's views are unparalleled. Staying at this level of resort, especially in Oia, is pricey, but worth the expense, in my opinion.
It was perfect, stunning views & great service.
Only thing was the wifi is not that good, but why would you spend time surfing the net when in a place like Santorini?
Location is superb Staff very friendly & efficient Particularly liked that the room was cleaned whilst we were at breakfast every day & again in the evening if required Very relaxing & stress free
Breakfast buffet could have done with more variety of cereals & perhaps chopped fruits.
If you want to experience the Santorini vacation of your dreams, this is the place to stay. You will feel like you are living in a postcard. From the moment we were met by the staff at our pick up point, we were amazed at the unique beauty of this hotel. The cave rooms, the awesome sunset view from your private balcony, the wonderful service and quiet location makes this a perfect spot to take in this fantastic island. Good WiFi in public areas and pool. We did not want to leave!
If you have a problem with steps, this might be an issue. While the staff totally took care of carrying our luggage so we would not need to worry about it, some might be challenged especially if you get a lower room.
nice place, perfect view, comfortable room, good breakfast, but some guests are not adequate persones with bad maners
