We just left the hotel today after a four night stay, and wished it could have been longer! The Blue Dolphins hotel staff are incredible - they not only did everything they could to assist with our stay, but also went above and beyond in terms of explaining the area, giving dinner recommendations (which were great, by the way!) and...

An excellent situation in Firostefani with easy access to several restaurants and just behind the hotel the famous hiking trail Fira to Oia. Breathtaking views, a great room and a very friendly and nice staff. Breakfast on the terrace is lovely, maybe could be improved a little bit ( a larger choice of food like fruits ). We were upgraded...

When I first saw the view of the caldera from the hotel breakfast room, it took my breath away. My husband and I live on the water and are used to water views, but the view from the Blue Dolphins is amazing. I didn't think that beautiful view could be any better until we received a complimentary upgrade that included...

The room we chose was a suite with a private balcony view. Perfect location and memorising view for a coffee anytime of the day. It was only 10 to 15 mins walk down hill to central fira. On your way to fira you find plenty of mini markets, restaurants and stop for a smoothie or icecream. Airport transfers were arranged...

When first booking for the blue dolphins, we wanted to stay at the Hideaway Cave House because of the private jacuzzi. Unfortunately, the Hideaway Cave House was taken the first of our two night stay. So, we booked the Canava Cave House for our family of four the first night and then moved to the Hideaway Cave House for the...

The staff were very friendly and helpful. It is in a great location with great views over the caldera from the terrace where you have breakfast and from the balcony of our room. The breakfast was always nicely presented and had good variety. The staff helped with the bags on arrival and departure as the only downside for me was...

We had the pleasure of staying here for my brothers wedding. The staff were fantastically accommodating, they really couldn't do enough to make our stay special, especially as there was a large group of us. The view is spectacular, as you are right at the top of the Caldera. I would definitely stay here again.

Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! Great place amazing view! They helped us with cheap rides wherever we needed and set us up with activities and suggestions on where to go. My friends and I stayed in the chess house. It was the perfect size and fun for our group.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Blue Dolphins is situated in the village of Firostefani, which is a 10 minute walk from the capital village of Fira (through a beautiful pedestrian path on the caldera). We have the privilege of being at a magical location in terms of view and peace of scenery, but also close to the restaurants, bars and nightlife of Fira, the capital of Santorini. Blue Dolphins is also connected to the picturesque village of Imerovigli which is also just a 10 minute walk through a pedestrian path on the caldera. ... more   less
