Best Affordable Luxury Hotels in Santorini

Ilioperato Hotel

Ilioperato hotel in Imerovigli

Affordable luxury options can be located on the island, both in the caldera villages (Oia, Fira, Imerovigli, and Firostefani) as well as in the villages close to the beach.
Sometimes a luxury hotel offers some of its rooms at more approachable prices. The reason for that usually falls under categories of size (may be smaller than the other rooms), more simple and minimal amenities, or even because of a less privileged sea view.
Also, there are hotels on the island that prefer to focus exclusively on travelers wanting to experience a luxury lifestyle but at a more reasonable price. Those boutique hotels have almost the same characteristics as luxury hotels with small details, basically on private amenities, interior design, location, and services that slightly lower the price.
An estimated price range for affordable luxury accommodation is €220- €350 per night. Lastly, another factor that might affect pricing is the season.
Note also that accommodation during lower seasons such as spring and autumn is cheaper than in summer.

Best Value for money Hotels in Santorini

Meli Meli Hotel

Meli Meli Hotel in Imerovigli

Santorini has a number of hotels that even though they may not be in the lavish spectrum, also avoid being categorized as budget options. The aspect that mostly defines this category is that they lack that worldwide famous volcano and sea view or the 5-star services and top-notch private amenities.
A few of them are located in the caldera villages but do not possess the undisturbed sea views of other, more location-favored hotels. The vast majority of value-for-money hotels can easily be found farther away from the tourist crowds, in towns such as Pyrgos, Megalochori, or closer to the beaches of Kamari and Perissa. This key factor has kept their pricing on moderate levels. The hotels are in excellent condition, with lovely, comfortable rooms and ample outdoor spaces with a shared swimming pool. The setting is that of a cozy, more casual hotel that could also be spotted on other Greek islands.
The price range for these hotels is approximately €120- €220 per night.

Best Villas in Santorini

Villas with view

Villa with Volcano view in Imerovigli

There are numerous villas built on the island in many locations. Some of them are parts of an upscale complex, while others are individual buildings.
Renting a villa is a good idea for those seeking privacy and luxury combined with a spacious environment. Since Santorini is a honeymoon-oriented destination, many room types are on the smaller side and can only efficiently accommodate couples.
Furthermore, it is very common for hotels to be adult-exclusive. This makes a villa an ideal option for big groups of friends.
In terms of price, although it might cost more than a room or suite for 2, it is really reasonable when you are travelling and splitting the expenses with more than 4 people in a group arrangement.
Most of the villas can accommodate a minimum of 4 individuals. The majority of villas on the island consist of a number of comfortable bedrooms, a sitting room that is usually separated from the dining room, a roomy kitchen, a swimming pool and a terrace. Occasionally they may be equipped with a serene garden and parking space. Most of them are two-storey buildings.

Best Family Hotels in Santorini

Familly hotels by the sea

Familly hotels by the sea

Although Santorini is not one of the most popular family destinations in Greece, this has not prevented many couples from traveling along with their kids and experiencing this volcanic island rich in history and sea activities.
Most of the hotels are specially designed for couples and honeymooners and some strictly accept only adults. In the most romantic parts of the island such as Oia and Imerovigli the number of hotels accepting to accommodate families is limited. So, if you want to travel with your family and stay at a hotel with the world-famous caldera and sunset view, it is strongly advisable to book your hotel early in advance.
More family options are found away from the caldera villages and closer to the beach and the eastern part of the island. Hotels are more spacious with large rooms and outdoor spaces with big swimming pools.
Furthermore, the beach is very close and is the perfect playground for children.
Lastly, a very common option for holiday with the kids on the island is renting a villa. It will provide you privacy and comfortable home to share quality and fun times with your loved ones.
