Blue Dolphins is perfectly situated in Firastefani, only a 20 minute walk into Fira but offering much better views and tranquillity. We stayed in the Romantic Suite with private balcony. The room was huge, bed was comfortable and it was very clean. The mini-bar was stocked with beers, wines, champagnes - all included for free which was a lovely surprise!...

1) The View - We were in a Romantic Suite with a Private Balcony. We got a superb view of the Caldera (Volcano) not just from the balcony but from our bed itself. It was mesmerizing. The Caldera view from the entire hotel is amazing. Though there are many hotels in Firostefani offering such a view, but our hotel was...

The view alone is enough reason to stay here. We had a room with a private hot tub and a veranda overlooking the caldera. The accommodations aren't luxury but they're custom built by the owners themselves. Its a small property so its much quieter and it sits right outside of the busier area. Also, the breakfast was really delicious

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
