The location of this property is amazing. It has the best sea and sunset views and it's near the top of the donkey steps. You won't need to compete with all the other people around for photos. Perfect location to all the shops, restaurants, etc. You can enter and exit from either side of the property which is nice. We stayed in room #7 which I think is the largest and had the best configuration. The staff was amazing. It is very hard work for them to get your luggage up and down from where traffic is accessible so that's appreciated. Breakfast is included and is nice, but it is the same each day. Room service was nice right to your personal hot tub :) Overall, awesome stay - Thanks

Read me before booking On The Cliff Suites. Beware. The club across the walkway above the rooms stay open late with music bumping. If you are coming to Santorini and want a quite experience while in your room this hotel is not for you. Each day I would also hear the chairs in the restaurant move across the floor. I booked the Deluxe Suite with Caldera View and Private Jacuzzi. Which the rooms are directly below the restaurant/bar. The room I received is Room 1 which the balcony shares an entrance to where the workers come in and out of for different tasks. There is no privacy at all. The entrance to all rooms for this floor is through the balcony area so you also have other guests walking past you to get to their rooms. The walkway is between your table area and your jacuzzi area for both Room 1 and Room 2 leaving Room 3 on the end with a little more privacy from other guests. Room is nice, simple with amazing views of the caldera from your jacuzzi or balcony table area. There is not a typical reception desk at this hotel. The staff was very attentive and always assisted with arranging outings. Always made recommendations and happy to help with what we might need. We received new hot tub towels any night that we left them on our balcony. And the balcony areas were kept straightened up so the next morning it always looked as fresh as it was when we arrived and lounge chairs placed back in their spaces.

We had the worst journey from the US to Santorini due to United airlines. We just wanted to get here and had our fingers crossed the rest of the trip would go well, it was our first time in Europe. The moment we arrived in Santorini the staff at On the Cliff have been amazing and provided excellent customer service. They had a shuttle waiting to take us from the airport to the hotel. Angel, one of the staff members greeted us on the main strip and helped carry our bags to the hotel. Finding the hotel can be a little confusing initially, so I am glad he was there. He brought us directly to the restaurant for the amazing breakfast that was included with our stay (every morning), and they allowed us to check in early. The view is absolutely breathtaking. The room was so romantic (although I came with my mom), the stone bed and shower are amazing. This place is well cared for and energy efficient. Alex at the bar makes the most amazing lattès and helped coordinate all of our transportation (there is a extra fee). He informed us of which ATMs to use so that we weren’t charged crazy fees. We had our own hot tub which is in direct view of the customers eating in the restaurant, but that didn’t bother me one bit, just thought I would point that out incase it bothers others. The room was cleaned daily by staff and fresh towels/sheets brought. The room has a safe to place your belongings. The restaurant was really delicious and the drinks were tasty. You cannot beat the Caldera view

Very nice, big, clean modern room with an excellent view. A little away from the busy part of town so in high season it would be a good choice. Easy walk to the centre and restaurants. Staff are friendly and helpful but difficult to get hold of when needed. For those travelling in winter/spring: the room was very cold (under 18 degrees) in cold (5-10 degree) weather - dress accordingly!

A little disappointed
Everything was great, except for the private spa...which was the whole reason we chose this place. We were told it had been too cold to heat the spa, but when we noticed that our neighbor's spa was heated & asked again, we were told they were staying longer. If you're only going to offer the private spa for certain lengths of stays you should mention that in the booking info.
