My husband and I visited Santorini and lived at the Blue Dolphins for 5 nights! It was just spectacular... we enjoyed the stay. Denis and Olga were WONDERFUL in recommending other activities like 'a day on the boat'. It really felt like a honeymoon.. Thank you for making us feel like king and queen Pesh and Tom

I stayed here for three days with my family to renew my wedding vows and we all loved it. The staff was kind, accommodating and the view was absolutely beautiful. My stay here made our anniversary more memorable and I highly recommend to anyone visiting Santorini.

My wife and I stayed at Blue Dolphins for 3 nights in October 2016 for our honeymoon. As we arrived late on our first night, we elected to stay in one of their standard rooms the first night and their honeymoon suite for the following two nights. We paid 20 euros for late night pick-up through the hotel at the... More

I stayed here for two nights with my husband in June 2015. The hotel is small, but very clean and the view is incredible. Breakfast was included and it was wonderful! Additionally, the service is great and people working at the hotel were very welcoming and helpful. They gave us really useful recommendations for the island.

We stayed at the Blue Dolphins for our honeymoon, it was just breathtaking. Everything was perfect.

We enjoyed our stay at the Blue Dolphins. The rooms are clean and spacious and the view is spectacular. Great location. Close enough to the restaurants and far enough away for quiet when needed. There are many steps so be prepared. I think this is pretty common for the location on the Caldera. Olga was very helpful with a list... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Blue Dolphins is situated in the village of Firostefani, which is a 10 minute walk from the capital village of Fira (through a beautiful pedestrian path on the caldera). We have the privilege of being at a magical location in terms of view and peace of scenery, but also close to the restaurants, bars and nightlife of Fira, the capital of Santorini. Blue Dolphins is also connected to the picturesque village of Imerovigli which is also just a 10 minute walk through a pedestrian path on the caldera. ... more   less
