    the hotel room was large with small kitchen and sitting area with views across the caldera. Breakfast buffet was large. Pools were all clean with plenty of seating.

    We stayed for 4 nights and had a lovely room with a fantastic view over the Caldera. The staff were very efficient, friendly, accommodating and very helpful. The included buffet breakfast was plentiful, full of variety and continually replenished. There was three different pool areas and many shady areas in which to relax. It was only a short, five minute, walk into Fira town, which is abundant with shops and restaurants. Fira itself is full of more expensive resorts, right on the cliff face and away from any traffic.

    For those with views over the Caldera, traffic noise during the night from the busy road was a little loud but the view from the balcony is well worth it. The mattress was very firm, though that seems to be normal for Greece in general.

    Superb

    The best thing about El Greco Resort is it's size. Probably the largest resort in Santorini, we were impressed with how well it was positioned just outside of Fira town. All the staff were extremely helpful with all our requests. Being a family with a young child, this resort was perfect for our little one. He was able to use the smaller swimming pools whilst we enjoyed a drink or a coffee watching him swim. Being at such a large resort, we found that a lot of families book at the same resort for the same reasons as us and we met several other families with young children that our boy could play with. Fira town is only a stroll up the road (even with a stroller it only takes 5 minutes). The room was quite large with plenty of front yard for the little one to play in the afternoon. We did not have a room facing the Caldera; however we had the best views of the sunrise in the morning. Being on the other end of the resort also made our location perfect for minimal noise from the traffic in the street at nights.

    The only thing that we can suggest for improvement is the breakfast in the morning. With so many seasonal fruits available, there was very minimal fresh fruits in the morning for breakfast. There was however quite a large selection of greek deserts, breads as well as eggs, hams and sausages/bacons.

    The location was gorgeous, the resort itself was stunning and the staff were wonderful.

    It was a real shame that transfers from the port/airport were not complimentary. We have stayed in Santorini many times and have always received complimentary transfers from much less expensive hotels. El Greco charges 12 Euros per person which seems a little steep when you can get a taxi for a group for around 15 Euros.

    Superb

    Very friendly and efficient staff Good facilities, especially the swimmimng pools and surrounding loungers etc The pool bar was excellent

    The resturant was excellent for breakfast but lacked atmosphere in the evenings, although this was somewhat irrelevant as there are many excellent resturants only 10-15 minutes walk away in Fira

    I found it much too large and very westernised, I went to another country to experience the country but found this hotel could be anywhere in the world.

    Good

    The swimming pools are fantastic and the layout of the resort is beautiful. We loved the fact that it is a short (15 min) level walk into Fira. The room was very spacious with a lovely outlook. We would definitely stay again and but for a couple of issues mentioned below, this hotel is easily a 10/10.

    El Greco could have rated 10/10 but for two issues. On one day we did not have towels in our room until my husband asked for the second time at reception late in the evening. There was an issue with washing and drying the towels that day. It would have been better to leave us with our towels from the previous day than to leave us with none from cleaning time until late at night. On the good side, the pool towels supplied by the reception were of the best quality I had ever seen in a hotel. The worst issue is with the pool chairs. There is such a shortage around the 4 main swimming pools that you had to be out there at first light ( I think some people went out in the dark!). After missing out for 2 days, I went out at 7am to find every single sunlounger being reserved with a towel! A definite need for more sunlounges and umbrellas, and such an easy thing for management to fix!

    The worst hotel I have ever stayed in,did not have hot water,the air condition did not work properly in couple of words:very poor hotel ,if I was booking do not even conclude it on santorini hotels!

    Fabulous

    This place is like a Country side resort for elderly people or people with children. Not for honeymoon or Couples seeking the ultimate Santorini Romantic Getaway.The facilities are impeccable - good heated water, good wifi, clean, good parking, walking distance to Fira (look North and see the Carrefourre Supermarket).

    The view is Not as spectacular as described.The caldera is on the West Side but the hotel is on the East side of the road. Thus you cannot see the view from the room.you have to walk out and cross the road to see the view.Unlike the other suites in Oia or fira or Imerviglio.In my opinion, its better to book a room at Oia if you planning to watch the sunset from your balcony or room.-

    Very well laid out resort. Breakfast were great and the room we had was fantastic. Compared to our other accommodation it was at the luxury end but at a very reasonable price.

    Nothing of importance.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful, accomodation good for price. The location suited us and we were a five minute walk from Fira town with lots of choice to eat in evenings. We went to Fira as family had chosen to stay there. There were buses to the beach which was 20 minutes away.

    After travelling around europe for 5 weeks this was our final and most disappointing accommodation booked. Our room was not made up every day despite this being a "4 star" hotel. The value for money was appalling and would I not choose to stay at El Greco again.

    The hotel was very quiet and comfortable, close enough to the town to walk comfortably without the noise and hustle of shoppers. Bar and restaurant staff were friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately it was too cold to enjoy the pools, but they looked lovely.

    The weather was too cold to enjoy the lovely surrounds of our room! Guess that is not the hotels fault though...

    Superb

    Lovely and clean. The public areas around the pool were spacious and because of the number of pools the result was the feeling of space and pampering. It was also fantastic to have a suite that could accomodate a family of four comfortably.
