    A fantastic hotel, clean and beautiful. The breakfast is nice. The staff is great at helping out. We liked the location - easy to find and just a few minutes walking from Fira.

    Do not recommend to book rooms with volcano view. Ypu get to see very little of voclano, but your room will be facing the main road (not much traffic, but still...). It could be a bit noisy. The rooms overlooking the swimming pools are nicer.

    The location was perfect. We were a 5-10 minute walk to the centre of Fira. Our views from our balcony were amazing. We stayed in a lofted room for 3 and it was great.Everything in the hotel was beautifully done ie the grounds breakfast was great etc. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. I had read one complaint before I arrived that we were not at the best place to view the caldera but I cannot think of a better place. The value for our money was amazing.We loved it! Would love to return sometime.

    There were flies inside the room and in the hotel reception area.

    The staff was great, especially the front office gentleman, though I do not know his name. I loved the location, just a 5 minute walk to downtown Fira. The view of the caldera was spectacular. The breakfast was delicious. Overall, the hotel is beautiful, and I would chose it again.

    No. The hotel is under renovation, and will be looking even better when it is complete.

    We had a beautiful room overlooking the ocean.Nothing was too much trouble for the staff The hotel has been refurbished for the new season 2010.The restaurant served quality meals and we ate there several times.It was a five minute walk into Santorini and a few miutes to Taxi's and bus's.

    The location and the staff were both excellent

    The lack of useable wireless internet - it may seem like a gripe but when you pay for an access card which is then unusable due to the speed - its an annoyance.

    The resort was beautiful and comfortable. We enjoyed the pools especially since we were not on the beach. The walk to town was so easy and bus station. Staff was very helpful in arranging a ATV to rent and since we didn't speak Greek, they were very helpful.The breakfast was outstanding.

  • Couple

    There was a choice of about 4 pools. The room was comfortable and breakfast was yum!

    I didn't like that wifi was only available in reception or how far the hotel was from the centre of town not the outskirts.

    Location was very good with 10 minute walk to the centre of Fira town. The pool areas are very large but the pools were not heated so quite cold to go in. Rooms were big enough and clean. Good value for money.

    The hotel is very understaffed. Reception takes a long time and seem very stressed. Buffet breakfast and dinner are quite average. Hotel double booked our room and needed to be transferred for one night to another hotel 20 minutes away.

    Perfect location in the Plaka area, clean, simple and comfortable.

    The hotel was conveniently located within walking distance to Fira, restaurants, shops and transport. Our room was quite spacious, overlooked the pool and had a bar fridge. We got a good rate as it was low season.

    The room had a damp smell all the time and we struggled to keep the windows open as the weather was quite cold during our stay. The bathroom had a shower above th bath with a curtain and no shower screen, so every time I used the shower, the bathroom was literally flooded. The housekeeping was not of a high standard, sheets seemed too small for the bed and were never tucked. We also ran out of toilet paper daily and it couldn't understand why they couldn't leave a few spare rolls given that we were there for 5 nights. During our first 2 nights there was a group of teenagers who partied by the pool till the early hours of the morning which meant we hardly got any sleep. Whilst the breakfast buffet was huge, variety seemed limited and the ingredients didn't seem to be of high quality. E.g. tinned fruit instead of fruit salad, greek yoghurt only, orange juice was diluted and barely tasted anything like orange juice. I know this seems like quite a lot of negative feedback but the weather wasn't very good when we were in Santorini so it meant that we spent a lot of time in and out of the room rather than lazing by the pool.

    close to Fira downtown, 5mins by walk, hardware is competely new.friendly staff .Free wifi in the lobby.

    Breakfast choice could be enlarged.

    The location of El Greco was great it was within walking distance to the town but with relaxing and spacious accommodation. Great pools & breakfast. What we liked best though was the staff - they were all welcoming and friendly no matter how busy they were.

  • Family with children
    9.6

    Great layout of the rooms with the kitchenette and utensils etc. Which was very helpful with our 2 year old toddler. Great pools to relax and swim in. Great views from the upper floor rooms. Very warm, and supportive staff - always willing to help and guide during our visit in Santorini
