For three days, we were immersed in sublime views, exemplary service, pristine rooms, and delicious food in the prettiest spot in gorgeous Oia. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us with first class service - from the bellboys to the receptionists to the bartender, Esperas pampered us with everything we needed and wanted. The views from our...

We loved the hotel as you felt secluded from other rooms and could enjoy the spectacular sunsets each evening in relative privacy. Restaurant had excellent food, cocktails and service. The staff were wonderful. The rooms were tastefully decorated with some traditional handicrafts as well. Being Greek-American I appreciated the touches. The veranda was private considering how many rooms are dug...

We stayed here as the final port of call on our trip to Santorini and we most definitely saved the best to last. The traditional cave rooms were comfortable and we had the most amazing breakfast delivered to the terrace. I wish I had that view everyday. The sunset view is the best on the island! There is a off...

The view and the hotel staff were among the best to be found anywhere. The older infrastructure comes with an intermittant sewer order. I do not think any hotels along this beautiful bluff can conquer this issue.Still a great place and I would go back.

Esperas is a beautiful hotel with amazing staff. The hotel is at the end of the main drag in Oia, so you get the benefit of the proximity of everything but also get to feel a little secluded. We looked forward to our breakfasts every morning. The views cannot be beat!

The hotel was on a side of a cliff. The room was sort of in a cave . It was really lovely. Amazing views, sunset, pool, staff and food. Service was wonderful. Will alway have very special memories of this place.

Probably the best hotel I've ever stayed in. The hotel is more private than the rest, you get unbelievable views, as well as your own sunset view. Breakfast is brought to your room every day so you can relax on the balcony in the morning sun. Just amazing

Fantastic and great hospitality with comfortable rooms and good traditional food. Local wine and unforgottable sunset. Take a long walk along the greek style architecture houses, up on the hills towards Fira, coming back to the hotel for a nice swim in the pool
