Reviews for Alta Mare by Andronis
Summary: My wife and I just stayed for six nights here - she is 5 months pregnant. The room, view, and amenities met our expectations, but we were blown away by the staff. Unbelievable; they made the trip go from "another great trip" to "outstanding and once in a lifetime". If you're wondering about whether to come to Santorini or whether to stay in Oia, jump to the bottom of this review. First, our hotel experience. Like I'm sure many are thinking - we didn't quite know what to expect with "cave rooms" or whether we should stay in Oia. What's the difference in a few hundred Euro per night? Some background - the hotel is Alta Mare - it is one of five hotels owned by Andronis in Santorini. It is one of a few in Oia at the northern tip of the island. The hotels (including this one) are built into the cliffs overlooking the sea. Most rooms in Alta Mare face south or west. Our room was a cave room - it was very nice, and luxurious. The jacuzzi was not very deep, but was convenient; we did not pay extra for a "perfect view" so we got half water and half of the town built into the cliff. We were glad we didn't pay extra; our view was great even though there were some better ones. We stayed six nights - for staying so long, it would've been nice to have just a bit more space in the room, but we made do just fine. What really sets this hotel apart is the location and the absolutely fantastic service, IN ADDITION to the lovely rooms set into the cliff side. Location-wise, it was just south of the super crowded part of Oia, but still very close and walkable to everything. Service-wise....it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Context: My wife and I honeymooned in Bora Bora at the St. Regis, so we've seen upscale. This was .... personal. Erica and Sophia (the two concierge / day to day managers - there is always on of them on site) were our friends, our guides, and personally invested in making sure we had a great time. They gave us fantastic recommendations (their restaurants were TOP notch - both little shacks and fancy sit downs) and they ensured we always got a table when we wanted), they booked our boat ride, they helped us plan our day of driving around the island. Everything. They personally made our six days the most productive, lovely they could've been. And the rest of the staff - Lucas (bright eyed, wonderful helper w/ breakfast everymorning and pool drinks), Mike (all around helper), George (General Manager) -- it is clear they are a family - a team. I've come to believe that is signature Andronis - so you won't go wrong with any of their properties. But Alta Mare is now "our choice". ...And it goes further - our last night on the island, my wife fell down - scared for our baby and her health, there were simply no questions. George and Erica took charge, Andronis had luxury cars take us to the hospital; our driver was the Andronis Electrician Christoph who genuinely cared for our situation and helped translate) - they didn't charge us, they didn't hesitate. They did what a caring family and hotel staff does. Our baby was ok but my wife was on crutches; when we returned they had put us in their nicest villa so she had to walk fewer stairs (there are indeed A LOT of stairs here), they ordered us food and made sure we were comfortable. In short, we will remember everyone at this hotel because these people made our trip. As for Oia/Santorini -- it's a small island, and we're very happy we picked it. It's more expensive than other great islands, but from what we saw, it's a bit nicer. The food was excellent, and whatever amenities you want are available. Oia is a lovely town - we wanted to relax for several days (baby moon) and just have a few excursions - it provided perfectly. We sat by the Alta Mare pool for a two of our days. Did a catamaran ride another day (go with the recommendation of Erica/Sophia on company), rented a car and drove around another day, and walked around Oia the last day. The car was great - but only do it if you're a comfortable driver -- roads can be tricky to navigate. The one time we stopped in Fira we did the cable car (that was fun) but the rest was simply a big city to us. If that's you're thing, definitely check it out - if you want more of a small town feel, head to Oia and get some R&R. Lastly, on recommendation from the staff, we spent half a day at black beach at Parissa on our driving tour. Highly recommend that - lovely beach, wooden chaise loungers already out there. Just grab one and the restaurants come serve you. Greek Paradise, with a staff that's like family. We're very glad we went with Alta Mare and Oia for six nights (vs. island hopping or city hoping on Santorini)
What we experienced at the Alta Mare by Andronis in Oia, Santorini was pure bliss. After traveling 25 exhausting hours, we couldn't believe what we walked into... a gorgeous city with vivid blue and white houses and the bluest water you will ever see. Our honeymoon home was beautiful and clean. Room service was wonderful and the food was delicious! We had an amazing room but then got upgraded to a bigger room with access to a private pool. What made our trip unforgettable was the staff. George, Sofia, Thanos, and Mike went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect. They are such sweet and genuine people. We got a surprise when we walked into our room and saw lit candles and rose petals all over the floor as a special gift for our honeymoon. They are more than accommodating by making sure we had dinner reservations every night. I will recommend Alta Mare to all my family and friends. It is a must visit hotel. A truly breathtaking honeymoon.

Everything about this hotel is amazing!! One suggestion would be to not get the cave hot tub as we did because the days are so hot the pool is great to cool down in, but you can use the pool by the bar as well. The service was incredible and over the top genuine
We visited this hotel for our honeymoon and had an absolutely incredible experience. The entire staff was amazing. Sofia, Erika, and Lucas were such gracious hosts and went out of their way to make us welcome. I've heard since that George, who we met used to run the hotel all himself and you can tell he has continued to make all the guests experiences wonderful. We would have loved to stay here our entire honeymoon but was definitely a highlight of our trip. Amazing pool, rooms, breakfast, the list could go on! Highly recommended.
We stayed at the Alta Mare Santorini for 4 nights and loved every minute it! From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Sofia to our last night there. Sofia was so friendly and helpful during our entire stay as well as George, Erika, Lucas and Thanos. The entire staff was so accommodating and the service we received was outstanding. There are only a few rooms at this hotel so it had a very intimate feel and was definitely our favorite hotel the entire trip. We would highly recommend staying there. Our room was very nice with a beautiful view of the Caldera and our own private hot tub on the balcony. The beds were SO comfortable and we slept great every night. We LOVED having our breakfast delivered to our room every morning with a smile (thank you Lucas!) and enjoyed eating it on the balcony with the view of the sea. The pool and pool bar were very nice and never crowded. Most of the time we felt like we had the place to ourselves and also were treated by the entire staff as if we were the only guests there! I can't say enough about how attentive and kind they all were during our entire stay. We were even upgraded to a larger room on our last night and were surprised by candles lit all around the room and some special parting gifts as well. One thing to be aware of is, like most places in Santorini, the hotel is built on a cliff and there are lots of steps to climb. We did not mind this as we were used to walking up and down steps so it did not bother us. That was one of the other reasons why we liked staying at the Alta Mare in Oia so much because we could walk to shops, restaurants, sunset point, etc. We loved our time spent at the Alta Mare Santorini and it was so peaceful and relaxing. It was a wonderful, special experience and we will definitely stay there again on our next trip to Greece.
