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.

Not only is Esperas one of the most beautiful hotels in Oia on Santorini, but it hands down has the best location. I just got back from visiting Santorini for my birthday with my girlfriend, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience than the one we had at Esperas. Vicky at Esperas reserved the most private room for...

... in case you lose the mattress lottery. I'd like to give Esperas a 5, but the bed in our room was so hard that my wife had to use her backpacker air mattress to be able to sleep. Friends that were traveling with us kept raving about how comfortable and cushy the beds were, and we thought they must...

Each room is on a different level, has its own outside space for watching the sunset and having breakfast, and has a large bedroom area. Staff is uniformly friendly and helpful. Views are spectacular. Common areas are quiet and accommodating. A very relaxing retreat from the somewhat crowded atmosphere of Oia and Fira.

If you plan to visit Santorini I recommend Esperas. The traditional houses in Oia, Santorini. A lovely place to stay because you can totally relax there, as it is very private & quiet with the best views of the famous sunsets, and sea views also. Breakfast on your balcony if you wish and of course the weather is always warm.

Great, staff amazingly helpful when asked about helping us out. Beautiful view from patio. Room adequate but the experience was worth the money.. We had a late flight out of Santorini to Athens and they gave us a spare room to shower. Only negative was the dinner at the hotel. Expensive and merely adequate.

You come to Oia for the sunset view. Nowhere on the island has a better view of it. Add to that a perfect too, delicious food and excellent service and, as long as you watch your step (it's steep!) you'll have the best possible experience here.
