What To Know

  • Although you’re right on the caldera, the headland here is slightly recessed, so you don’t get the classic sweeping views
  • Its position means that the afternoon shade draws in slightly earlier than at other, more exposed properties
  • The nearest village is Imerovigli, a few minutes drive away
  • Most Santorini hotels are in towns and villages; this is far more peaceful, but some will find the location inconvenient
  • Children 12 and under are not permitted

We’ve just left San Antonio Hotel and are already missing it!!!

Small hotel with amazing staff, food and view!! These are definitely the most favorable points about the hotel.

Breakfast, appetizers (mezze) and meals were really good and staff are really lovely!

Rooms are spacious, most of them with a private balcony - in some of the rooms the balcony is almost in common area, which is not that good; our case :( - bathrooms and amenities are really good! Bed and sheets also very good!

Definitely recommend to everyone that comes to Santorini!

Perfect location between Oia and Thira. Amazing service, super relaxing and amazing views.

The people who work at San Antonio make it special. They all work so hard to make the guests stay a super pleasant one. From organising excursions, booking taxis/restaurants, service in the restaurant, room service, laundry and cleaning everyone was so kind and lovely. This is a very special place and ideal for those wanting amazing views and a luxury experience without the crowds of Oia or the party atmosphere of Thira. However both are only a short taxi ride (c25 Euros and 20 mins) from the hotel. In our opinions this gives the best of both worlds. Probably the best hotel on the island and a bit of a well kept secret.

Everything I imagined plus vegan friendly

San Antonio is one of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed at. I’ve traveled all around the world and there are some places where pictures are better than reality. San Antonio is one of those places where the reality is actually much better than the pictures. My boyfriend and I decided that this is our hands down favorite vacation hotel. We would really like to come back. We have been here for 3 nights and we have 2 nights left. I don’t want to go to sleep yet because this means we’d only have 1 more night left when I wake up. It’s such a lovely place that I never want to leave.

The views are drop dead gorgeous and the rooms and amenities are nice. We got the superior sea view with hot tub. It’s the best room ever! We have our own private hot tub, outdoor bed area with four posters, 2 sun lounges, a breakfast table with 2 chairs, and a little couch. The view from the hot tub during the day is unparalleled. At night, we can see the stars clearly. It is truly a pleasure to stay in this hotel. The infinity pool is so refreshing during the day.

If you’re staying in Santorini, I think this is the best hotel. Fira and Oía are so crowded that it’s hard to really feel like you have privacy and have a luxurious experience. In San Antonio, the view of the caldera is amazing and the hotel is in a very quiet place. They literally carved this hotel through the volcanic rock. It would be hard for new hotels to pop right next door! We rented a little red buggy to get around. There is parking at the hotel, so that was seamless.

San Antonio on its own merit is really 5 stars. The restaurant staff adds another 5 stars. I would give this hotel 10 stars if I could. My boyfriend is ethically vegan and I’m flexitarian (which doesn’t really mean anything since it means I’ll eat whatever is in front of me).

The hotel is extremely accommodating with my boyfriend’s vegan choice. We were positively surprised to see vegan butter at the breakfast buffet. Also, the chef created delicious vegan things off the menu. On our first night, they made a linguini dish with fresh vegetables with tomato based sauce. For dinner tonight, they made a vegan linguini with ingredients that we happen to have with us (basil tofu and soy crème fraîche). The chef created an absolutely delicious dish on the spot using these ingredients and adding mushrooms, truffles, and garlic oil. This dish was absolutely amazing.

It’s really hard to find hotels that make an effort to make delicious meals within a certain dietary restrictions. Most places don’t understand that you can actually make amazing dishes without meat or any animal products. Plant based foods are delicious and healthy. This is most apparent in places have things already pre-made, so they can’t take out ingredients. This is the case I’ve found for even super fancy 5 star hotels and resorts.

With San Antonio, it’s clear that they make everything from scratch, so they can accommodate dietary restrictions. They not only accommodate, but they made delicious memorable dishes. Also, our waitress most days has been Jenny. She’s very nice and remembers our dietary restrictions. We can’t wait to come back!!

My only negative feedback is that WiFi isn’t great, but functional. The connection for the entire island of Santorini wasn’t great. That said, when you have amazing views, delicious foods, why do you really need WiFi? :)
