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 /10

    The hotel is situated in the village of Imerovigli, approximately one mile from the town of Fira. There is no need to hire a car as the centre of the village is only a short walk away. Moreover, there is a bus station near the hotel. As for the airport, it is approximately 6 mi away, which means a 20-minute drive from the hotel.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The Santorini Grace originally had 9 guestrooms, then 17, and now 21; all but two of them have a jacuzzi. They all have a different layout as they have been carved out of the rock, but they all have a lounge area as well as a small bedroom. The decoration is minimal and refined and this is what gives it its exquisite charm. The bathroom is equipped with a large shower and a hair-dryer and as far as facilities are concerned, the rooms include a television, a safe, air-conditioning, a minibar with tea and coffee-making facilities, a direct international telephone line and room service until 12:00 am. All rooms have a large terrace with a garden suite and two deck chairs.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    The Santorini Grace is a small, elegant hotel and certainly one of the best on Santorini. We are welcomed by a young team aged between 18 and 25, and you can understand why they are young and fit when you realise how many stairs there are in the hotel that you have to walk up and down all day! There is a very small lobby with two computers facing each other and a small library behind it where you can help yourself to a book as you wish. The modern interior decor and furniture are very harmonious and from the outside of the building it is impossible not to fall in love with the view. The hotel's pool is a little further down: it is a lovely area and one which is more spacious than most other hotel pool areas on the island. There is even a second solarium lower down. Note that the Santorini Grace has a small gym - a rare feature on Santorini Island!

    Food and drink 9.20 /10

    At the Santorini Grace, breakfast is served in your room only, and for no extra charge. For lunch and dinner, the hotel restaurant serves very good a la carte meals at reasonable prices: between ?9 and ?23 for lunch and between ?13 and ?31 for dinner. Some tables are set up outside, but an interior room is also available. When we visited the Santorini Grace, we had a very memorable meal indeed! The chef is capable of preparing all of Santorini's and Greece's specialities with incredible expertise. Dolmas, tzatziki and other Greek mezes are simply delightful. Remember to try the beetroot risotto, which melts in your mouth - it is truly scrumptious!

    Beach

    The morphology of Santorini is a result of the activity of the now-dormant volcano. Some of its beaches are therefore pebbly, while others are covered in black sand. Given the sharp relief on the west coast of the island, Santorini's beaches are to be found along its east coast. Do not expect to find tropical-looking beaches because there aren't any. That doesn't mean that the landscapes are any less beautiful though.
    Kamari beach is located some 6 mi from Fira and is a black sandy beach stretching about 3 mi along the coast. A promenade runs along the seafront, and the fairly peaceful Monolithos beach, just up the coast, offers a similar landscape to that found at Kamari. The black sandy beach of Perissa is 9 mi south east of Fira and covers more than 4 mi of coastline. It is particularly lively in the summer due to its many shops, bars and restaurants. However, if you want to do something different, head for the red beach. This is also a black sand beach (with crystal-clear water), but it is surrounded by huge red cliffs and can only be reached by foot or caïque. One of Santorini's most famous and most beautiful beaches, it is located not far from Akrotiri. Vlychada is in the Perivolos region and is often the least busy of the island's beaches. There are also two pretty beaches in the north that are usually frequented by tourists staying in Oia. Ammoudi is situated directly below Oia, on the north-west end of the island, whereas Armeni is a little further up.

    To know

    The hotel is open during the summer season, from April to October.
    The nearest beach is that of Baxedes (to the north). The sand is volcanic, as it is on the rest of the island, but the sea is incomparable.
    Many guests hire a motor scooter to get around the island, but if you wish to hire a car, keep in mind that there is a public car park nearby.

      This aptly named establishment is actually built into the side of a precipice. The Cliff Side Suites is an inspiring name, but the establishment itself is rather charmless. The rooms, despite being comfortable, lack character and are unlikely to leave an indelible mark on your memory. However, thanks to its architecture, which is typical of the island, this establishment is quite pleasant. Its biggest problem is its overabundance of stairways which makes it far too dangerous to come here with young children. For those who are familiar with the island's recent history, this establishment was formerly known as the Grottos Villas.

      Here lies the fabled city of Atlantis, engulfed by the sea. From the top of the cliff, the Regina Mare hotel overlooks this legendary site. It is a compact establishment, full of life during the day and shrouded in total silence during the night. The perfect formula for relaxation!

      This is a lovely hotel where it's nice to just linger around the pool, and, here, finally, is a hotel with adequately-sized communal areas! Built on the side of a cliff, like many of the hotels in Santorini, the Belvedere sets itself apart by its simple yet beautiful decor. The staff are very pleasant and friendly here and a romantic ambience reigns throughout the hotel; the Belvedere is definitely more recommended for couples than families!

      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.

      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.

      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!
