    Great hotel and service
    Hotel is located in Akrotiri, a quiet village in Santorini, easy to get around by bus or car. The hosts were wonderful and made sure that we had everything we needed to make our stay perfect. Room was large which was nice for my family of 4. Would definitely stay here again when we return to Santorini.

    Excellent stay. No free shuttle as advertised.
    We had a fabulous time at Thira's Dolphin. The host couple are very sweet and friendly. The breakfast was fabulous, and the pool was a wonderful treat. The hotel is located in an old town so you really feel like you get a culture experience. There are a few nice restaurants and a supermarket a short walk away. The area itself is quite hilly. There is a decent bus service to get to Oia which was quite affordable and easy to use (however service is more sparse in the evening after the Oia sunset). Close(ish) to the hotel is an ancient town of Akrotiri which is definitely worth a visit, and close by is one of the beaches. We walked it and were glad we did, but the hill back was horrible. Another issue was on our booking it says there is a free shuttle from the ferry port. Well this is NOT the case, and it was a very expensive taxi or shuttle instead. We did discover later that the local bus goes there too, but without the knowledge it would be difficult to navigate. Overall we absolutely loved our stay.

    Great family run hotel!
    We were delayed in our arrival due to a ferry strike, so I reached out to the hotel to let them know so that our full reservation would not be cancelled. Dominica was quick to reply and helped us secure a transfer from the port to the hotel. The hotel was quaint and family run. Not much of a bar, but an amazing pool with great views! The rooms were large and had a spacious shower, especially in comparison with other hotels we stayed at in Greece! After a day, we decided to rent a car so that we could explore the rest of the island and Dominica again helped us and arranged a car rental for us where they delivered the car directly to us at the hotel.

    Fantastic. Great views, breakfast and a friendly family business. Recommend it, close to shops and tavernas if you don't mind a steep walk.
