We had the pleasure of staying here for my brothers wedding. The staff were fantastically accommodating, they really couldn't do enough to make our stay special, especially as there was a large group of us. The view is spectacular, as you are right at the top of the Caldera. I would definitely stay here again.

Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! Great place amazing view! They helped us with cheap rides wherever we needed and set us up with activities and suggestions on where to go. My friends and I stayed in the chess house. It was the perfect size and fun for our group.

We had a fantastic stay at Blue Dolphins. The owner was very kind to give us a free upgrade to jacuzzi suite, and offered informative tips to visit Fira and Oia. Breakfast was very good and having it while looking out to the caldera was no doubt the highlight of our trip to Greece. The place is about a 20...

The Blue mDolphin is absolutely amazing! The staff is very helpful and go out of their way to make your stay special, from booking and delivering ATV's to custom meals by the pool at sunset! We are counting the days until we can return to paradise!

We had a very good stay at Blue Dolphins. We got upgraded to a room overlooking the caldera with a private jacuzzi. Very pleasant staff and great location - a nice short walk to Fira where you can take buses to both ends of the island. Great value for money and would love to return here on our next visit...

My husband and I visited Santorini and lived at the Blue Dolphins for 5 nights! It was just spectacular... we enjoyed the stay. Denis and Olga were WONDERFUL in recommending other activities like 'a day on the boat'. It really felt like a honeymoon.. Thank you for making us feel like king and queen Pesh and Tom

I stayed here for three days with my family to renew my wedding vows and we all loved it. The staff was kind, accommodating and the view was absolutely beautiful. My stay here made our anniversary more memorable and I highly recommend to anyone visiting Santorini.

My wife and I stayed at Blue Dolphins for 3 nights in October 2016 for our honeymoon. As we arrived late on our first night, we elected to stay in one of their standard rooms the first night and their honeymoon suite for the following two nights. We paid 20 euros for late night pick-up through the hotel at the...

I stayed here for two nights with my husband in June 2015. The hotel is small, but very clean and the view is incredible. Breakfast was included and it was wonderful! Additionally, the service is great and people working at the hotel were very welcoming and helpful. They gave us really useful recommendations for the island.

This is one of the best places I have stayed in ever, in the world. I have travelled extensively - even if only recently on Tripadvisor.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Blue Dolphins is situated in the village of Firostefani, which is a 10 minute walk from the capital village of Fira (through a beautiful pedestrian path on the caldera). We have the privilege of being at a magical location in terms of view and peace of scenery, but also close to the restaurants, bars and nightlife of Fira, the capital of Santorini. Blue Dolphins is also connected to the picturesque village of Imerovigli which is also just a 10 minute walk through a pedestrian path on the caldera. ... more   less
