    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.

    Very Good 8.0
    Esperienza più che buona: camera pulita e spaziosa, location in un posto tranquillo lontano dal chiasso e bella vista sulla caldera e sul mare. Il resto dell’isola è facile e veloce da raggiungere. Colazione sufficiente. Consigliato.

    Super !
    Un piccolo hotel a gestione famigliare in questo piccolo paesino Akrotiri che è all'estremità opposta di Oia ma che regala una tranquillità e una vista sulla caldera impagabile. Camere spaziose e ben pulite. Colazione offerta a bordo piscina! Antonio e Domenica sono due persone squisite pronte a soddisfare qualsiasi necessità. Davvero un soggiorno super
    Sara, it8 night family trip
    Fair 4.0
    Sinceramente, a única coisa boa deste hotel é o custo. Não gostamos da localização (fica bem ao sul da Ilha, um pouco longe do movimento. Sugiro aos viajantes que fiquem em Fira ou Imerovigli, mais ao "centro" da ilha e de fácil locomoção!) Sem dúvidas é necessário alugar um carro. O hotel não é feio, mas é bem simples e falta capricho. O quarto e banheiro são BEM simples, e as janelas do quarto não escurecem! O café da manhã é horrível, muito fraco e com pouquíssimas opções. E o pessoal que trabalha no hotel é atencioso, quando você chega te instruem bem sobre a cidade e o que fazer, mas ficamos chateados pois tivemos poucos dias na ilha e perdemos um dia com um passeio turístico (para umas 100 pessoas), ridículo, que ia ao vulcão e a ilha de Thirasia, e termina subindo uns 200 degraus no sol escaldante indo para Oia. Pelo amor de Deus, eu já viajei muito, e este foi um dos piores passeios e mais inúteis que já fiz em minha vida. A falta de informações e transparência do hotel nos chateou muito. Enfim, Santorini é um destino incrível, mas NUNCA voltaria para o Thira´s Dolphin (garanto que vale a pena gastar um pouquinho mais). E se tiver um tempo, visite a ilha de Milos: que lugar incrível! Dá um banho em Santorini!
