On the rocks will always hold a special place in our hearts. Santorini was where we got engaged, and the hotel went out of their way to make it even more special. Special shout out to Jenny and Maria at reception who made it all happen. They set up our room with flowers and candles after the proposal, were super...

Nicely situated in Imerovigli, close to Thira but away from the noise and crowd of the main town, this beautiful hotel can seem a bit hard to find at first, as you need to walk through Santorini's typical pedestrian walkways along the cliffside, but it is well indicated and not that far at all from the street. Each room is...

This was our first stop on our 8 day tour of Greece, and it couldn't have been more perfect! From the beautiful setting and hotel architecture to the amazing staff - we enjoyed every minute! The view is AMAZING, from your hotel room, from the breakfast area where you sit outside your room, to the pool bar where you can...

For starters, Imerovigli is mid point between the main town of Fira, and one end of the island, Oia. There are several hotels in Imerovigli facing the caldera, that span from high to low quality and with price points up to greater than $1000 a day. This hotel was a hidden gem that is almost to good to let others...

On the Rocks is a quaint boutique hotel located centrally in Imerovigli. First off I would highly recommend staying in Imerovigli as it's a peaceful location with a fantastic view and a great launching point to get to Fira, Oia or the beaches. On the Rocks offered superior service, we thank Maria for making sure we were taken care of...

My husband and I cannot recommend this hotel enough. It was amazing. The service, the view, everything. Breakfast was a highlight with a great menu and served on our balcony each morning with a peacefully perfect view of the caldera. Lots of space to relax in the sun with sun loungers well spaced around the pool area.

The location of the hotel is perfect. Magnificient view over the caldera and very peace full. Note, as the hotel is built on the cliff there is a lot of uneven steps. From our room #13 total 82 to get to the pedestrian route which takes you to all the way to Fira. On upon arrival we were greeted by...

I am so glad we chose this hotel! Our stay was simply perfect. Rooms are ancient traditional houses built in caves. They are nicely decorated in white. We stayed in a superior room, and I honestly think it is worth it. The facilities and pool are on the smaller side (Santorini standard), but they never felt crowded and were quite...

This hotel is really for couples. Nothing for families and if you have mobility issues then this isn't the place for you. Like all the hotels set round the cauldra there are steps - lots of them - they're steep and there's no other way of accessing the various levels. If you want a holiday where you crash out by...
