Pyrgos Santorini, Greece -
See the map
Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Orizontes may not be directly on the sea, but it does have a superb location. Located in the heights of Santorini, this hotel has a beautiful view of the sea, which looks like something straight out of a film during sunset. There are few leisure or sport facilities at this hotel because guests come here to rest and relax, and not to be active all day long or participate in plenty of activities. The peaceful atmosphere that exudes from the establishment is ideal for recharging your batteries. The hotel is open between the months of April and October.

    Location 3.64 /10

    The establishment is located 200m from the small city of Pyrgos, by the side of the road. The city of Fira is about 15 minutes away, or approximately 6 miles. At just over 7 miles away, the airport isn't much further.

    Accommodation 6.95 /10

    55 guest rooms in eight categories: deluxe, superior, executive, junior suite, cottage, and one villa with a private swimming pool. There are also subcategories of these rooms, depending on their location and the views they afford. It's easy to be completely confused with all these choices! The funny thing is, the Orizontes tries to sell itself as a boutique hotel. Most of the rooms are located in the main building. Some of them overlook the road and although it may not have a lot of traffic, you can still hear the noise of the vehicles from here. The decor in the standard rooms is rather sober and includes a painting of a Greek landscape. A canopy hangs from the ceiling. The colour scheme changes depending on the category of the room but the sober aspect remains the same. There is a balcony on which you can get some fresh air, but unfortunately some of them face each other. The bathroom is not very big. A shower curtain separates the Italian-style shower from the rest of the room. The basic amenities are all here: a television, refrigerator, air-conditioning, hair-dryer, etc. The rooms in the superior category have an extra sitting area and a larger terrace. The executive rooms may have a larger surface area but there is nothing especially interesting about the view. As for the cottage, it has a kitchenette and a mezzanine.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The Orizontes opened its doors in the summer of 2003. Although it receives touch-ups here and there every winter, the latest renovations of this Cycladic-style establishment took place in 2012 and the results are pleasant. This discreet little hotel at the side of a road benefits from a beautiful clear view of the sea thanks to its location in the heights of Santorini. The warm welcome extended by the staff is really lovely. The wooden reception counter faces a small lounge comprised of bench seats and comfortable armchairs. The pastel colours mix in well with the white surroundings. Outside, there are a few tables where you can sit in the shade before heading to the vast sun terrace and its large swimming pool. Plastic and rattan deckchairs are lined up around the pool. A paddling pool is available for children where they can splash around safely. The view of the sea from here is amazing, especially at sunset. It is definitely a spot worth lingering around in at the end of the day.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The establishment has one main restaurant. At the beginning and the end of the season, it is located inside in the main building. During these periods, it is only open for breakfast and this from 8:00am to 10:00am. The small buffet has enough to keep you lightly fed. Unfortunately, the cereals are kept in plastic dispensers, which means that due to the humidity, they quickly become soft. The small blue tables with white tablecloths are decorated with a turquoise-blue table runner.
    Otherwise, the restaurant is also open for lunch and dinner during the busy months and is located under a beautiful veranda. The setting in front of the swimming pool is idyllic, especially in the evening. The meals are served à la carte but a set menu is also available. The cuisine is mostly Mediterranean. A Greek night is held once a week.

    Beach

    All of the beaches in Santorini, which are mostly found along the east coast, are covered in black sand, due to the island's volcanic origins. These aren't tropical beaches.
    The most popular one is Kamari on the south-east coast. The promenade running all along this 3 mile long beach is lined with hotels, bars and restaurants. More to the north, the beach of Monolithos is similar to this one but is generally less crowded and not easily accessible in certain spots. In the south, the beach of Perissa is over 4 miles long and not far from the famous 'red beach' in Akrotiri, which gets its name from the red earth of the cliffs surrounding it. Other beaches include Vlychada, Ammoudi and Armeni, which are all less touristy.

    To know

    The Wi-Fi access is free but only available at reception, and there is also a computer available for guests to use. The closest beach is just over 2 miles from the hotel.
    There is a bus stop 50m away as well as a tavern with beautiful views of inland Santorini.
    The city of Pyrgos has a few interesting sites within walking distance, like the private museum of popular art and the Prophet Elias Monastery.

      • 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.

      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..

      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.

      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.

      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!

      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.

      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.
