We wallowed in the excellent care we received from staff at Esperas Traditional Houses for 2 weeks in April. It started with Nikos their car driver, who greeted us at the airport with bottles of cold water for the journey to Oia. His information about Santorini, where to park in Fira, etc., was very helpful & a lovely way to...

Perfect hotel to experience the uniqueness of Santorini. Our room, room 116, was a junior suite which permitted our teenage daughter to have her own private cave room. We had a private hot tub and porch from which we sipped wine and watched the sunset. It just doesn't get any better. ALL of the staff is attentive and friendly. It's...

Excellent place to stay. Beautiful view. Staff very helpful. Would love to go back again when the weather is warmer. Would love to see the sunset that we missed because of cloudy weather. People were very friendly and offered suggestions of things to do.

Loved our stay at Esperas. The location gives you an amazing view of the Calderas and the staff are super friendly. Close walk down to Ammoudi Bay as well. Always say yes to the transpo they offer you from/to the ferry or airport. Well worth it.

Location is perfect as everyone says. The staff goes out of their way to smile and be helpful. We could not imagine more. We spent four nights in room 110, which has a window and deck view directly down to the water and dock. This is definitely one of the best view rooms and is close to the pool and...

What an amazing property. Tucked into the side of the hill with a front row seat to amazing sunsets it is a location beyond compare.

This cave hotel is absolutely amazing! From the minute we arrived, the service was perfect. The location could not be any better -- you can take a short cut to the steps down to the harbor, and you can watch the sunset from your balcony while all the other people are lined up for hours to get a good spot...

We visited Esperas last September. We were amazed by its location that allowed us to enjoy the sunset from the privacy of our terrace. The service was excellent and we really liked the Greek traditional character of the hotel. The concierge service helped as at every request.

There is no better place we've stayed than this. Everything was exceptional, except for the breakfast, I only say that because when you pay AUD $400+ per night you expect the best and this was definitely the case in every way except the breakfast. I could not recommend highly enough. The staff were simply amazing, joyful, kind, thoughtful and hardworking....
