    Exceptional 10.0
    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.

    Quiet little gem.
    If you are looking for a quiet place to stay this is for you. Beautful views of the caldera from our balcony. Attentive staff, nice breakfast and pool. To get around had no trouble renting a car at a reasonable rate thru the hotel. Had a very nice stay here.

    Very nice and relaxing Hotel in quiet area
    +: Very nice and relaxing Hotel in a quiet area in the south of the island and away from the chaos of touristic places (such as Oia of Fira). The staff/owner was great, very friendly and super helpful. The swimming pool was very nice and clean and with a great view on the cliffs. The bedroom was very large with a good double beds and a nice and clean bathroom. It is close to a small supermarket (3min walk) and several good and traditional restaurants (greek tavernas) serving local food. -: it is a bit isolated and far from any beach: it is a good 20-25min walk to go to the closest beach (by walking next to the main road, which is unsafe): you'd better hire a car (which you can find for not that expensive) or take a taxi/shuttle

    A hidden gem in Akrotiri
    This hotel has a great location. Far from the hustle and bustle, secluded village, close to the Red Beach, the museum of old civilization, good local restaurants, monasteries, wineries and even amazing sunset view. The room overlook some of the caldera. The hotel is very quiet, has nice parking lot, amazing clean swimming pool, family run business. Some things to note is that the room's mattresses are very thin and extremely firm for my taste. The breakfast was also so so. Coffee is not that great and it has the same menu everyday (boiled eggs, toast, yogurt, etc.) If you ignore a few negatives, this is a very good hotel for the price and if you are looking for some peace and quiet then stay here. Rent an ATV (right around the corner) and stroll thru the island. There is a castle right in front of the hotel and it's a neat place to go on your first morning. You will hear some Greek music there. For the staff: if you guys invest into good mattress and breakfast, your hotel will be just phenomenal!

    Good value for money.
    The hotel is a good choice if you are looking for something out of the hussle and bussle and are not willing to spend a fortune for your Santorini stay. You get value for your money. Family hotel with great view and great location. Nice pool (for Santorini it is rather big). Bus stop nearby. Breakfast could be more inspired. The owners are very helpful when you need information or need to make bookings. Walking distance to the archeological site and Red Beach.
