What a great resort. The staff is very customer focused. They were extremely helpful in setting up our trip prior to arrival via email and even more so during our stay. They really wanted it to be great for us. Nicole and the front desk team were great. I'd recommend using their transport service. Impeccably clean van and great driver...

This is a gem of a hotel in one of the most breath takingly beautiful places on earth. I almost didn't want to post this review for fear of this special place being discovered by more people! It's the best spot in Oia to watch the sun go down. You can sit on your balcony in comfort with a drink...

Ok the Esperas is quite expensive - you are paying for the views and being able to stay in the traditional construction of the scenic town of Oia. The hotel staff is great and the views are spectacular (and it boasts some of the best sunsets on the island). The rooms are average -- nothing special. I confess I did...

Thank you very much for your review. I am glad to hear that overall your experience was positive. Considering our pool, common areas, lounge area and poolside bar and restaurant and our porter and transfer service, Esperas is a full service hotel vastly superior to countless properties around Oia with 2 to 4 rooms calling them all Suites with no...

The Esperas was fantastic! The view from the pool and our room at Sunset was incredible. The staff was lovely, they hauled our luggage, prepared a breakfast for us the night before we left since we had an early flight and provided a delicious meal (very yummy octopus)! They really took care of us! The room was lovely, and equipped...

Probably the best place to see the sunset at Santorini . Our stay at Esperas was just for a day and the highlight was that we could bask in the twilight and watch the hues of the setting sun from the comfort of the hotel poolside. The cave rooms were pleaseant but kind of small . The breakfast delivered to...

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights for our anniversary. We were in the most basic room and it was great...the cute "cave" bed was all decorated with balloons for our anniversary.

Perfectly appointed rooms look out at the best views on Santorini. The staff is enthusiastic, helpful and fun. Hanging out by the pool is a treat. It feels like a grotto next to a bar with the best cocktails and a heavenly view. Loved it! Didn't want to leave!

Upon getting to Santorini, I had no idea what to expect of the hotel or island or anything as my cousin had been there previously and booked the hotel based on what she had learned in her earlier experiences.
