My husband and I just celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary with a trip to Santorini and Esperas was perfect! It is THE location in Santorini at the top of Oia with the perfect view of the magnificent sunsets. The rooms are beautiful and unique and each have their own balcony. Ours had its own spa. The pool and bar area...

My wife and I had a lovely time staying at Esperas. Great location in Oia for watching the sunset and walking down to Ammoudi Bay. The staff was very welcoming and provided service with a smile. Poolside cocktails were delicious. Highly recommend.

My husband and I went island hopping around Greece for our honeymoon. Oia was our last leg of the trip. The hotel was stunning. I knew from seeing pictures but in person, you just couldn't beat the view. The staff was all very friendly, gave us recommendations, made sure someone was available at 4:30 in the morning when we left...

The resort staff was extremely accommodating. The view of the Caldera is unbeatable and its location exclusive away from touristic crowds yet very accessible to restaurant. It's a cave home so expect to climb steps. I will be back in a heartbeat for personal R and R or honeymoon! I love Espera!

Potential guests should be cautioned about the steps without rails. I was a guest there when I was younger with no problems but at 80, there were difficulties. The restaurant had a varied menu and the staff was most helpful.
