My wife and I have recently returned from a 2-week holiday on Santorini, where we spent week 2 at the Iconic Santorini hotel, which was absolutely wonderful. The experience here was first-class and faultless, with friendly and efficient, but discreet staff. Attentive without ‘getting in your face’.

We returned to Santorini in June this year breaking our normal rule not to return to the same place. This hotel is truly wonderful and it was as much a pleasure to see the Iconic family again. So so pleased we went back !!

We have stayed at top hotels on five continents, but we both agreed that Iconic was the most luxurious and romantic hotel of all. First, the views are incredible all day long, but particularly at sunset. Every night at sunset, we would...

A nice way to relax while you explore this most beautiful and majestic of all the Greek islands. Hire a car as it will help you get around and park in the safety of the hotel grounds. Hotel close enough to enjoy nice views and the staff is helpful and knowledgable of local hotspots.
