What a truly amazing place, Had a wonderful and relaxing vacation. Brigette and the whole staff
couldn't do enough for us. Which made our vacation even better. Breath taking view. Breakfast
brought up to you when you wanted it. Plenty of food. Rooms are huge and private terrace and pool makes enjoying the view even more pleasurable.
We didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back.

Don't listen to some of the other negative articles on here, Carpe Diem is a fantastic place to get away from it all for a week. The rooms are large, the service is friendly, the breakfasts are a feast (and you can order as much of what you want at no extra charge), the check in is tailored to how you're feeling (if you're tired then you can get the welcome low down of the island later) and the views are stunning - you can see the whole island from your balcony.

We went to Oia for the day and while it is obviously beautiful, we were very happy that we were staying in Pyrgos instead as it is so peaceful. Plus everywhere is a short cab ride away. Talking of cabs, jump in a cab from the airport and Carpe Diem is only 15 mins/15 euros away.

There are several eating options close by, the best is Saleem which serves fine greek food accompanied by high quality wines and very reasonably priced. Also check out the very traditional greek taverna called Metexa in a village close by.

Bridgitt and Fotos will look after you very well.

Room Tip: Room no 5 is the best as it gives the most privacy.

There is no doubt that the setting of Carpe Diem is just incredible. One can not fail to be impressed by the amazing view that you see everytime you walk onto your terrace; it has to be one of the best on the whole of Santorini, but sadly expectations were not met for other areas of the stay. Firstly be aware that you are paying top end rates but are NOT getting top end service. The service was mediocre, not spectacular as other reviews of this hotel state. Having breakfast served to your room is nice, but generally the cooked food was cold on arrival and my request for a pancake one morning was not delivered as there was a 'problem'. In saying this, George does a good job as the concierge, but you would expect this at this rating of hotel. The room itself was very nice, but the bathroom was disappointing and most definately not up to the standards you would expect of a 4/5 star hotel. Perhaps it was because the end of the season is approaching, but there was a lot about our room that was tired around the edges, and this really lets the whole hotel down. We did have room servide on our first night at the hotel and the quality of the food was good.

Overall it seems a shame that a hotel that has so much potential does not really deliver. Our stay was enjoyable, but that was more due to the fact of the views and exclusive setting of the hotel as opposed to anything else.

Lastly I can only echo a couple of other comments on this site about the pools. They do not appear to be heated and are too cold to swim in - this applies to the pool on your terrace and the infinity pool - which looks stunning, but we did not see anyone use the pool the whole time we were there.

Room Tip: Choose an upper floor suite.

we went on our first holiday without kids(aged 15 and 13). Carpe Diem is exactly as you see on the website. A beautiful setting, fabulous rooms, incrdible service and George the manager was very helpful in organizing trips and recommending restaurants for dinner. Breakfast served on your own private patio is delightful and the menu was extensive. Cannot wait to go back again maybe next year. A truely relaxing holiday in a peaceful and tranquil setting.

Room Tip: suite 6 had a very large patio area and the sun all day long
