Blu Rooms
Ranked #1 of 16 Akrotiri B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 September 2016

Blurooms is absolutely fantastic.It is perched on the edge of a cliff completely overlooking the caldera and the view is second to none.The rooms are immaculately clean,with the lovely Vivienne coming in every day to clean,make your bed and arrange your towels into a design on your bed The hotel has a limited menu for meals and has a small bar.The reception/breakfast area is also overlooking the caldera and is a wonderful place to start your day.The breakfast consists of cooked meat,cheese,boiled egg or omlette,,pancakes, fresh fruit,toast and jam,cake,cereals and tea or coffee and served at your table.The hotel is run by a wonderful family who go over and above to ensure your every need is met.They sorted our transfers and an excursion,also our car hire. Grandad even took us to local restaurants and asked the owners to bring us back,which they did.This brings me to the only negative and that is the resort of Akrotiri,it is quite remote and there are no restaurants or tavernas in the nearby vicinity.The village centre isnt too far away downhill and there are about 5 places to eat,one supermarket and a care hire place.It is quite a trek back up the hill and it is dark and rough underfoot. There are 3 more restaurants a couple of miles further up the hill ( not within walking distance)on the lighthouse rd.We hired a car and saw the rest of Santorini and I would stay in a different resort if I went back,but not Fira or Oia as they are so touristy. My only wish would be to move Blurooms to a different resort as I would love to stay again!!! If you are looking for a break away from everything,then this is perfect.We had two days sat on our balcony,watching cruise liners go in and out of Fira and Oia,and listening to the sea and it was so relaxing.
There is a pool 200m down a road at the side of blurooms which also has stunning views.There are no decent beaches locally but a taxi boat,with a glass bottom, will take you to red beach,white beach and black beach for 5 euros.

Room Tip: We had room 3 and had a full caldera view.

We chose Blu Rooms in Akrotiri because we wanted a quiet place with a view, but a short drive to Fira. We couldn't have guessed how perfect it was there. The owners were exceedingly kind to us and were very helpful to any of our needs. They made sure we had everything we needed and gave us good advice on Santorini. The rooms were clean and nice, and the beds comfy. Definitely a 5 star experience that I would highly recommend!

We spent 2 nights in Blu rooms and we loved everything about this place! It is right on the edge of the cliff overlooking the volcano. The view from the windows & the balconies is stunning! The rooms are clean and tastefully decorated, keeping it simple with white & blue colors, same as the colors of the islands of the aegean sea. The pool is situated some meters away from the rooms having the same fantastic view of course! You will love the rooms if you are looking for a quiet place to crush, away from the buzz of Fira and Oia. You will need a car or a bike. We rent a bike and it took us 20 mins to get to Fira and 40 mins to get to Oia.

We spent 8 nights in BLU rooms and we really enjoyed our stay.
Rooms are very clean, caldera view is amazing and hotel staff is very kind: helped us with transportation to/from airport, with our atv rent company and suggested us very nice restaurants in Santorini.
Swimming pool is only 1 min walk away from hotel and offers an unique view..
Definitely recommended, worth every cent of its price.
