On the Rocks hotel Imerovigli, Santorini, Greece

During my stay in Santorini last week I also toured the On the Rocks hotel located in Imerovigli on Santorini Island.

Please note I did not stay at the hotel – I just had a friendly tour with the management.

The 20+ room hotel is situated right in the middle of Imerovigli which is the town next to Thira, Santorini's main city. It's nevertheless very picturesque and quite and features an abundance of white cave style houses.

The hotel is perched along the crest of the volcanic island offering beautiful views towards the sea and the remaining volcanic islands.

I really liked the small but cozy atmosphere of the hotel – the nice salt water pool and the open though small standard rooms. There are plenty of benches around the pool with incredible views. I loved the architecture and setting.

There are a number of hotels and restaurants along the cliff near the hotel. Several looked fantastic in terms of food and views. Since so many places here offer incredible views, you still get good food and its very affordable and delicious.

Prices for the hotel start at EUR 399 in the main season for standard rooms. There is no loyalty program to 'ease the pain'.
