    Location 3.82 /10

    Well hidden in the village of Pyrgos, nestled on the hill near Kamari, the Carpe Diem has a view of the whole plain. Accessible on foot from the centre of Pyrgos, the hotel is more difficult to find coming from Kamari: signs are scarce and the hotel is still too new for everyone in the region (sparsely populated) to know it.

    We therefore recommend, as with every other hotel on Santorini, that you hire a car or a moped. These are of good value, and the island, which is only 20 mi long, is ideal for independent exploration.

    Accommodation 6.95 /10

    The guestrooms are white, as is the rest of the building, equipped with all possible amenities, such as air-conditioning, a direct telephone line and room service upon request.

    The guestrooms' design is contemporary, displaying overt comfort, where white is the dominant colour and right angles are proscribed. The hotel having only 9 rooms, the accommodation conditions are exceptional for anyone seeking absolute silence.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    Pure and silent, perched at the top of the hill, the Carpe Diem is a hotel that stands out, but not from the road unfortunately! It is set on a dusty country cobbled lane lined with high grass, and only emerges after you've walked onto the premises. According to brochures, this small hotel opens its doors to guests looking for a holiday that is also meant to be a special "experience" thanks to its luxury and its relaxation programme.

    The Carpe Diem's style of relaxation is clearly tempting in spite of the financial deterrent (the prices are not easily affordable in our opinion) - its colours are one of its attractive assets and the hotel's services and environment follow the same harmonious principle, where the elements are unified: the water of the pool blends with the sky's blue horizon, the staff, all dressed in white, move in an imperceptible way, respectful of the relaxation concept applied to the whole hotel.

    Food and drink

    There is no restaurant at the Carpe Diem, which nevertheless provides a half-board option: a hearty international breakfast, included in the price, is served opposite the swimming pool, between the water reflecting the surrounding beauty and the little room which serves as a reception and general common area.

    Pyrgos is about a ten-minute walk from the hotel. While exploring the heart of the village, throughout the sloped backstreets dotted with churches and shops, try and spot a small tavern, an inn or a bar where old village folks play cards and smoke pipes. Nobody will refuse to prepare a Greek salad for you...

    Beach

    There is no beach in the close surroundings of the hotel, located half-way between plain and mountain. A fifteen minute drive is enough to get to Kamari: there, you will find an endless beach where you can sunbathe.

    To know

    Only opening recently (2009), the hotel offers its guests luxury that is carefully thought out, and complete relaxation. The high prices of this hotel guarantee a wealthy clientele - a clientele which, according to the manager, is in search of silence and complete relaxation. Let's just say that this hotel wasn't exactly designed for families with young children...

      • Easyopinions -
      • Value for money 7.24
      • Location 3.74

      Open since 2001, the Zannos Melathron was the first hotel in Greece to be awarded the 'Relais & Chateaux' label. It isn't very big, but its service reflects very high standards. It is housed in an 18th century building which is totally enchanting, but mainly reserved for a wealthy clientele. Guests hardly leave the place at all, but benefit from its peace and quiet and admire the view over Santorini island.

      • Location 6.68

      The Thera Mare is some way out of the centre of Perivolos and it suffers from a rather unattractive setting, surrounded by wasteland and building sites. This is a real pity because the hotel, which opened more than 25 years ago and was last renovated in 2005, is a really pleasant and prettily decorated place which is open all year round.

      • Location 6.79

      The Rivari opened its doors over twenty years ago and that's plain to see! The buildings are ageing and the furniture is in real need of replacing. This place is quiet though, and the staff is friendly. A ten minute walk takes you to the town of Kamari and its beach. The walk is not a pleasant one unfortunately as there is nothing to note in the surroundings... The clientele is mostly French.

      A beautiful hotel with adequate service for its category. This is a great hotel to choose if you know you want to enjoy Kamari's nightlife while still remaining out of the hustle and bustle.

      • Location 7.56

      Formerly known as the Tropical, the Alesahne Beach was renamed when it was reopened for the 2009 summer season, having undergone a complete renovation to make it the trendy hotel it is today. Although it is pleasantly decorated, the facilities are not what you would expect from the category of hotel that it is trying to be. It does, however, offer a beautiful setting on Kamari beach..

      • Location 7.3

      The Sunshine is a small, unpretentious family hotel which offers a pleasant ambience and enjoys a fine location on the Kamari beach-front. It is certainly more suitable for those looking for a good pied-a-terre on the east coast of Santorini than those looking for particularly comfortable accommodation.

      • Location 5.23

      This hotel is owned by the same people as the Bellonias Villas, so you won't be surprised to find that the establishments are quite similar, with identical pools, although, unlike its twin, the Hotel 28 was opened in 2008 and is not located on Kamari beach. None of this is relevant though, when you behold the pleasant, charming surroundings of this place.

      • Location 7.59

      The Homeric Poems hotel has gradually extended over the years. Since its opening in 2004, new rooms have been added without spoiling the surrounding area or the hotel itself. It only has 19 rooms, but it is perfect as it is, as much in its interior decoration and the warm welcome that it provides, as in the view that it affords over the caldera. It is a real haven for couples who are looking to relax and explore its romantic nooks and crannies, and, to be honest, this place was our favourite for the quality of its facilities and its suites with private swimming-pools!

      The Santorini Grace is hard to find but nobody wants to leave once they're there! Everything about this little hotel on Santorini is enchanting. With its architecture, typical of the island, and its position hanging off the cliffside, opposite the caldera, it is a real haven of peace. The chef here is also worth a special mention as he prepares exquisite meals. We still remember them now! It is definitely one of our favourite hotels on the island and most of the guests here come from Britain.

      • Location 8.09

      Open since 2004, the Icons is a beautiful, harmoniously decorated hotel and wherever you are in it, the view of the caldera is unobstructed. However, you must not be scared of heights if you wish to get close to the cliff's edge! Attached to its neighbours on either side, the Icons stands out due to its cream-coloured walls. Its stairs are a little steep and its communal areas are not very spacious, but it is nonetheless a pleasant hotel whose clientele consists of couples only, and children under 14 are not allowed.
