What's the best way to watch a sunset in Fira?

Go to Naoussa, but book a table early to get the front row seats! Or go to the nearby village of Oia, but head there early, around 6pm, and stake your claim around the castle to get the most stunning views of the cliff side domed dwellings Santorini is so famous for, and for a stunning view of the sun dipping into the ocean along the horizon.

  • the room was clean, spacious & very nicely furnished - no air conditioning but there is a fan in case it's hot; the hotel was only couple minutes walk to the main road at Fira town; breakfast personally prepared by Thomas, the house-owner, every morning - though it take some time - was always one of the highlights each day; Thomas' kind suggestions & advice on our travel plan every morning; the lovely breakfast place on rooftop with the caldera view.

  • The amazing views, the friendly and helpful staff, and breakfast by the infinity pool every morning (at our request)! There were limited sunbeds, but as it is a boutique hotel with a small number of guests I always got a sunbed! It is also centrally located in Fira, but once inside the hotel, we felt like we were worlds away from the tourist crowd.

  • This is a small family run hotel in Fira. It doesn't have caldera views but it does have them over the east side of the island. It's located a bit out of town up a hill which makes for a tiring walk but it's ok. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and made you feel very welcome. The rooms are around the pool area which has a nice atmosphere. A good breakfast is taken in a cave room under the main hotel. That was fun.

  • Great location: close to the bus station and Fira. Amazing staff: Maria and her daughter were so helpful, they gave us good tips on how to walk along the coast to see the most of the Fira and close by villages, also informing us about great restaurants with a view. In general we felt like we were home, not in a hotel.

    Group from Switzerland
  • If you want a hotel with a view you can't get any better! The location is fantastic in the middle of Fira and the room (number 10) was spacious and the bathroom had a cave shape with huge shower. Staff was nice and helpful

  • It ticked all our boxes: we wanted a hotel with a view of the caldera, a pool, near the Fira bus station and easy access by taxi. Location is better than excellent, just in front of the Orthodox Cathedral. The view is amazing, go for a top floor room for an absolutely stunning view of the caldera; we also had a good bathroom (with full bath) and a spacious enclosed balcony. Nice pool with plenty of loungers - and a view! Staff were all delightful. Breakfast was large (eggs and bacon every day) albeit a bit samey.

Cosmopolitan Suites Excellent 8.9 The views from here are AMAZING, and the infinity pool was stunning. The staff are also amazing and treat you like family. Breakfasts were extremely yummy, and our rooms were kept very neat and tidy each day. They also provide you with a mobile phone, in case you need to contact them while you are away exploring the island, or if you need any information whilst you are away from the hotel. We will definitely be coming back here. Such an amazing place to stay.

Atlantis Hotel Excellent 8.9 Everything was perfect..The location, the room, the staff were extra friendly and breakfast was amazing, we stayed on the cliff side with view of the volcano with a perfect sized balcony. Would definitely recommend and I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Fira if I ever return!
Panorama Studios & Suites Excellent 8.8 The Panorama Suite is in the centre of Fira. The path down to the water is 2 minutes away, cable cars 5 minutes away. It is next to all the fun shops and restaurants and the local bus station is about a 5 minute walk. We couldn't have asked for a better location or place. The staff were extremely friendly and helped booking us an atv, and even called our next hotel in Mykonos for us to arrange port pick ups. The room was extremely clean and the view was stunning. We stayed in the honeymoon suite (room 85) and it was fantastic. Large room with big bed, living room area and a little kitchenette completely with dishes and pots so we were able to cook a meal in one night. The room has a private balcony overlooking the caldera with the perfect view of the caldera and of sunset. It was really hard to leave we loved it so much.
Aria Suites Exceptional 9.7 I arrived in tears, an hour after learning of the death of an old friend, and had to cut short my vacation to fly to London immediately. Dimitra was the best person I could have met at such a moment. Her cold glass of water and simple, direct compassion brought me around, and I was able to make a few calls and rest in a holding room until my room was ready. Over the next 24 hours I swam in the pool, made internet arrangements, dined nearby, and chatted with the staff, all of whom were as caring and perceptive of my needs as Dimitra. The view was gorgeous, the sunset spectacular, the breakfast magnificent, it was spacious, light, quiet, welcoming.
Rena's Suites Good 7.9 Eleni, the owner, is so wonderful. Such a genuine and welcoming person. Rooms were very very clean. Breakfast was fantastic - it felt like I was sitting in my mum's kitchen and she was serving me breakfast! Thanks Eleni, we will be back!
Aressana Spa Hotel & Suites Wonderful 9 Staff service and professionalism. Helpful hints on places to visit and eat.
The Majestic Hotel Excellent 8.6 all the staff were really friendly and helpful, the rooms were really nice and clean,location was awesum.
El Greco Resort Very good 8.1 Great location to Fira shps and restaurants. Very helpful and pleasant staff
Astro Palace Hotel & Suites Very good 8.2 very friendly staff. They are ready to offer all kinds of help, starting from our check in.
Tzekos Villas Excellent 8.6 Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff, whose friendly smiles were always welcoming and genuine. I would have no hesitation in recommending Tzekos villas as a perfect venue for your stay in Santorini.
Kavalari Hotel Very good 8.4 I have to say that the location is perfect! It is not far away from the bus station and taxi spot of Fira. Moreover, it is located at the centre of Fira. You will never be regret to live here. The most important is the excellent sea view. You can sit at the terrace the whole day doing nothing but just see the sea. The price is reasonable. We went there at 5th August, the peak time in a year. Most hotels don't have such a good view even they are more expensive than Kavalari Hotel. Therefore this hotel is a really cost-effective option. The staff is very nice and friendly. After knowing we were the first time to Santorini, he gave us a map and showed us the travel routine. The also recommended us some restaurants, which offer great greek food. They are willing to help you with any issue. In terms of the facilities, they are also quite good. The room and the public area are clean, and I guess the hotel was newly decorated.
Santorini Youth Hostel Good 7.3 Large spacious rooms, luxury accommodation, friendly staff, great location, very secure, loved my stay there and wish to return!
