Beautiful hotel on the caldera. All the staff and John, the hotel manager were amazingly friendly and helpful. The views are breathtaking. Our only regret is not staying longer. We highly recommend this hotel and will be back again.

Loved it!!!

This hotel is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. The view is absolutely gorgeous and the staff is spectacular. It doesn’t matter what room you are in, you will still get a spectacular view of the caldera and of the Aegean Sea. The staff is especially accommodating. You can tell the owner you want to eat dinner by the sunset for example, and he will book everything for you. The meals are all delicious. I especially love the breakfast and if you have any food allergies (I have celiac) you have nothing to worry about. I 100% recommend this hotel. I wish there were 10 stars available for this hotel because it deserves 1,000,000,000.

Dinner with a view

I was in the restaurant for dinner with friends. It was an unforgettable experience. At the reception you will be warmly welcomed and guided to the restaurant. The drinks to start at the bar were a treat. The food was excellent and ingeniously presented by the service team and the appropriate wine recommendation including history to the wine. Thank you for this experience.

Superb dinner

The restaurant manager Sakis can help you choose amazing dishes in combination with local wine! Definitely recommend the crunchy moussaka and the beef cheeks! Chef George did a great job combining Greek cuisine and fine dining! Thank you for this amazing experience everyone! See you soon!
