Stayed for 3 nights in June for our 20 year anniversary. FANTASTIC staff surpassed all our expectations from the first minute to the last. The main pool had a beautiful sea view and the lovely poolside staff were the highlight of our stay. Food (and sunset gazing) at the main restaurant was delicious. We even got free mini massages by the pool every day - going the extra mile made this a 5 star experience. Room decor and private stone hot tub on our huge patio overlooking one of the many pools was gorgeous. HOWEVER, having booked a 'Junior Suite Sea View' room, at this price point, we were disappointed to realise that our hot tub faced directly across to a building site. Work was halted but it was a horrible view and would not have booked if we had known this in advance given it was such a special occasion. We had a partial side sea view barely visible from the hot tub and the famous Oia sunsets are not visible. It would be more accurate to change the description of the Junior Suites on this side of the complex to 'Partial/Side Sea View-Construction area visible until 'xx/2019' so customers are really clear on what they are booking. For a cheaper hotel this would not be as important, but for €1737 for 3 nights, it needs to be 100% accurate. We still had a wonderful time despite our building site view ad the rest of the hotel is so perfect. Thank you again for your wonderful hospitality.

In terms of property and location you'd be hard pressed to find anything that tops Santo Maris. Given how everything is so crammed in and around Oia it was a real treat to be able to spend time in this resort with huge pool and bar area plus a further 4 decent-sized pools with sun-loungers! Also a lot of interesting garden spaces which are beautiful to look at. The property is new so the planting is still young but you can appreciate the care and planning that has gone into these spaces. The rooms are luxurious and spacious. Great pillows, soft bed linens, Korres bath products, Nespresso coffee machines and tea selection. Breakfast was fabulous! Huge choice, highest quality products, great coffees and friendly service. It was supposed to stop at 11am but that didn't seem to be a firm rule. Another great plus point of SM is the walking path they have created up into the centre of Oia which only takes 7 minutes! No need to walk along the road and queue at a bus stop. The resort is so close but yet it feels tranquil which makes for great sunsets with uninterrupted views. So why didn't I give it 5 stars? We felt a little let down by the main restaurant for dinner which was pitched as a top restaurant with prices to match. The dishes we tried on the limited menu were not imaginative and all under-seasoned. View was amazing and service was excellent so not a write-off by any means. Also 9 Euros for a glass of wine at the pool looked more like a 'tasting' serving than a glass so we felt ripped off. When i queried the bartender I was rudely dismissed. Having spent the past 10 days eating and drinking in top places in Mykonos and Santorini, it was only in Santo Maris where I felt like I was being cheated. In the scheme of things - small change I know. Having said all of that I would not hesitate recommending SM to friends or returning again.
-The small pool / jacuzzi for our room was in the shade and the temperature was too cool for us to enjoy +Staff and overall service were exceptional, great buffet breakfast
THE BEST. Oia is very crowded and Santo Maris Oia is a hidden gem off the cliff, but just a 5 minute walk up the path. The staff made my birthday weekend truly special. We booked a couple s massage at their spa and it is to die for! We ended up buying spa creams to take home. Our drivers mentioned that this was one of the newer suites on the island and it s probably one of the biggest. The staff goes out of their way to ensure everything is to your liking. Will definitely come back.
O paraíso na terra. Na chegada o atendimento já te surpreende pela atenção e delicadeza. Os quartos são verdadeiras casas, espaçosos, muito limpos, decoração de extremo bom gosto. São varias piscinas, sempre com muito espaço e conforto. Café da manhã muito bom. O spa é caso à parte, eleito o melhor da Grécia é imperdível. O hotel fica à 10 minutos de caminhada da vila de Oya, privacidade e comodidade juntos. O mais importante, a vista do por do sol é inesquecível. Simplesmente Perfeito.
-Gostei de tudo. +Quarto lindo. Bem decorado, espaçoso e muito agradável. Varanda linda com jacuzzi. Closed para colocar as malas e banheiro ótimo.
We absolutely loved our stay at this hotel. Staff member Dimitra was such a joy to interact with and really made us feel welcomed. This hotel is gorgeous and we would return in a heartbeat. Kisses from Canada!
+Great staff, luxury suite and amazing swimming pool.
+Outstanding! The staff at this hotel is truly exceptional. The moment we walked into the lobby, we were greeted by smiling, helpful staff. Everyone who works here seems to genuinely enjoy their job and take pride in their work. The main pool is well staffed and anticipates your every need whether it be water, fresh towels, an adjustment on your umbrella for shade, snacks, etc. We enjoyed a honeymoon package at the spa and left feeling so refreshed that I am still relaxed even after returning home a week later. The guest services arranged transfers, made reservations, and set up day trips which seemed were tailored just for us. Whenever we mentioned that we were staying at Santo Maris, we were ushered to the best seats on the beach, the best views at the winery, and the top boats in the fleet of day cruises. This hotel is clearly adored by the locals as well. The suite was equipped with clean, stylish furnishings and a terrace with our own jetted soaking tub and indescribable sunset view. While other visitors on Santorini scrambled to find a place to watch the sunset, we never had to look any further than our own private terrace. I've never written a review before on any hotel, but I could not contain my love for this place! We are already planning a return visit. Thank you for making our honeymoon trip complete perfection!
+Location stupenda (tramonto super!!). Suite grande, pulita, pratica. Ristorante ottimo. Staff professionale e molto cortese.
What an amazing place to stay! Everything about this hotel was brilliant. The location, the suites, the 4 pools, the food and the impeccable staff. We were fortunate enough to stay here for a week and totally splurged on this stay but it was totally worth it. On arrival we were seen after about 15 mins, offered fresh drinks and cold towels on arrival and then checked in and taken to our suite. We were given a lovely 'check-in' pack that explained everything and staff at this point couldn't have done enough. Our room/suite was amazing. Spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. There was a small kitchen area with mini-bar, the main lounge area and then off that a good size bathroom and the bedroom. Both bedroom and lounge had doors that opened up to a private terrace where our own jacuzzi was which faced the setting sun. A great place to relax in the evenings. All the staff were great around the main pool and the food was delicious. Breakfast was always un-hurried even when the tables were busy, staff again checked on you without being overbearing and the choice of food and drinks was substantial. Lunches were great and we tended to share as the portions were off a good size. A special shout out to the spa staff also - they were all brilliant and offered lots of great treatments. This is one of the best hotel spa's we've been to and we couldn't recommend enough. All the therapists were brilliant, super friendly and knew what they were doing. After each treatment we ended up booking for the next one almost immediately. If you ever get a chance to visit and stay at SMO then you must! Only a short walk from the town of Oia, spectacular sunsets, lovely main pool but also some quieter pools around each collection of suites so you can get away from the business of the main pool, clean and tastefully designed. Thanks for helping us celebrate in style!

Nous sommes resté 1 semaine dans ce petit paradis au bout de Oia, cette place est très paisible et les maisons très confortables, service discret ... enfin tout pour passer un agréable séjour. Nous étions suite 113 que nous conseillons aussi bien pour l’agencement la simplicité du confort et la location à l’écart... il y a plusieurs piscines très agréables chaque îlot de chambre sont séparées et vous donne l’impression de petit hameau le tout dans un style Santorin très épuré . Merci à toute l’équipe , nous conseillerons vivement cet hôtel qui est qu’à 5mm à pied du centre et 10mn du petit port de Oia resplendissant. Warms regards Pascal & Éric
-Menu in Restaurant in the evening poor choices +Location
-O hotel não fica exatamente no vilarejo de Oia. Ele fica um pouquinho ao lado, então sao uns 5-10 minutos caminhando ate la. Alem disso, apesar da magnifica vista do por do sol, perde-se a vista da caldeira. O cafe da manha também deixou um pouco a desejar para o padrão do hotel, levando em consideração variedade e qualidade dos alimentos. +Quartos amplos, e muito limpos. Cama confortável, staff muito amigável. O hotel era bastante grande, com diversas piscinas (5 no total). O serviço de atendimento no bar da piscina era muito atencioso. A vista do por do sol da piscina principal é incrível, uma das mais bonitas de Santorini.
+Beautiful views and hotel overall. Staff is wonderful and food is very good too. we got helped with booking cruises and restaurants and anything else we needed. Anything you want at the breakfast buffet. Everything is indeed a 5* experience
Heel goede service, prima verzorging van kamers en bij zwembaden.Heel vriendelijk personeel. Mooie handige ligging aan de rand van een der mooiste plaatsen "Oia-Satorini" van Griekenland. Kamers liggen in een niet te steile helling, waardoor altijd mooie uitzichten op omgeving en zee.
We spent 4 nights at Santo Maris and loved every minute of it. The suites are spacious, lovely and clean. We spent lots of time at the main pool area, which is beautiful and has the most beautiful view. The service was incredible, including at the restaurant/bar, pool, front desk, travel guide services, and the spa. The food was delicious, and we loved having our own private jacuzzi. The hotel has an extremely peaceful, luxurious and relaxing feel. Also, the pool / bar / restaurant area faces west, with an unobstructed view of the sea/horizon; you get even better views of the sunset every night from here than you would at any of the other spots where people gather to watch the sunsets, and we found Santo Maris preferable because it isn't crowded with tourists. After trying out several different places to watch the sunset, we chose to spend our last evening in Santorini watching it from patio dinner at Santo Maris, and it was by far the best. After experiencing Santo Maris, we would never want to stay anywhere else in Santorini.
We stayed for 4nights in sept 2018 at this amazing hotel. The room was lovely and we had a large balcony with a private pool (honeymoon suite). Cleanliness of the hotel was immaculate.The staff were really friendly and went out of their way to help us, the service was great.It has the best ocean views and sunsets you can ask for. Easy walk to the heart of Oia. The hotel motto should be “sunsets are proof everyday ends beautifully” at Santo Maris. Ron
