"Beautiful Resort with wonderful views and amazing service!!"
Yasou Rocabella!! I hate that it has taken me this long to post a review for this amazing vacation destination and let alone magical place. I know this is a long post but I feel worth the read. We were visiting from Chicago USA and I was nervous planning our first European trip. I wanted this to be an unforgettable trip for my daughter as this was her high school graduation present. I am happy to report that this place was beyond our expectations. I read reviews from this site and as always you cannot please everyone and there were wonderful to not so wonderful reviews. I did a lot of research before booking my stay at Rocabella and my final decision was based on not only the breathtaking photos but on the fact that every single comment whether good or bad was addressed by management and offered a solution if there was an issue. That spoke to me as to the quality of service to be expected. We were not disappointed- from the minute we arrived we were taken away by the beautiful entrance to the front desk and greeted by Maria and her staff and they were extremely welcoming. She made us feel at home and very relaxed- offered many options and information during our stay and always offering assistance throughout our stay. She and everyone at the hotel were amazing. This hotel is great if you just want to relax in the many pools throughout, you don't see that in Fira or Oia hotels as most have a tiny pool. I like that you can hike to either end of the island but if you are not In the best shape, I wouldn't recommend as it could be 2 hours to Fira and 4 to Oia on foot. I strongly recommend booking the island boat tour, we booked the one which includes beer, soft drinks and a wonderful seafood/pasta spread. This is cooked on the grill BBQ style on the boat. You are able to snorkel but be careful if you are not an avid swimmer, it's the Mediterranean so waters can be choppy. I would say stay near the boat and don't swim to spring waters as other boats dock at the same time and your boat can't stay docked in one area due to water and rocks - we had a long swim back since the boat had to keep moving. Not a fun thing at the time but the food and remainder trip made up for it. Overall the crew was excellent and food was amazing. Gwitta and her staff at the hotel restaurant were extremely attentive to every detail. She is amazing and helped us when there was a slight issue during a wedding and we were trying to get room service not realizing the kitchen was closed. She and her staff served us a wonderful meal and followed with a fruit platter and bottle of wine the following day apologizing for any inconvenience. I must say you don't get that anywhere else. The drivers Panagiottis and Yani's Were amazing showing us the sites and promptly picking us up from our days into Fira and Oia. They were very professional and courteous all the time. They even gave us history on the areas we drove by. Overall, this is a place that my daughter and I cherish and we will continue to visit for years to come. The rooms, the food, the VIEWS and the amazing staff and service are so amazing I could go on and on but if you are reading don't take my word for it.. just visit and you will not be disappointed. One tip I would offer is dont book hotel transportation to/from airport.. arrange directly with the hotel. We are planning our return hopefully this year Rocabella.. Efcharisto and see you soon- Nhora Rodriguez
"Fantastic views of the Caldera"
Lovely hotel. I've stayed here 3 times. The massage & manicure in the spa is fabulous. The food is good but pricey. Special requests need to be pre ordered 24 hours in advance. So be pre warned and prepared as menu is limited. Staff are friendly. Make sure you don't stay when the whole hotel has been taken over by a wedding. It becomes very noisy and not as peaceful as it normally is.
"Perfect Honeymoon Stay"
Among the hotels we had been for our honeymoon / Eurotrip, Rocabella is unbeatable. We arrived Santorini at 0730hrs and went straight to the hotel. We were greeted and assisted by Spyros. He helped us with our luggage and brought us to their reception. We knew we were way too early to be checked in thus we wanted to be registered and to keep our luggage first. But Spyros did his magic and gave us the room at 0900hrs!! During registration, we were served with welcome drinks and small bites. He wanted us to get rested first before we head to a busy day exploring this very beautiful place. The room was perfect with a balcony overlooking a huge pool and the breathtaking caldera. They use O-live bath amenities which were topnotch! The bed was so comfortable that you'll definitely sleep soundly. My husband has informed the hotel that we are staying for our honeymoon. And to our surprise, room service sent us a fruit platter and a bottle of Greek white wine! What a pleasant surprise! The next day, they served breakfast in bed. The portions were very huge! We also met Maria, who was very helpful. We asked if they happen to have hairpins and Maria gave me her personal hairpins. Staffs in Rocabella go really way above your expectations. They are the best! Thank you is not enough for the hospitality and the very memorable experience created by two beautiful people, Spyros and Maria. + Olga who made the arrangements. Kudos!
"Look no further"
If you are going to Santorini, please dont waste your time looking for a hotel. THIS IS IT! Pro`s: SERVICE: The best I have ever experienced, cant say enough about how well you get treated here. LOCATION: Imerovigli is right in the middle of everything, very quiet and wonderful views from here, dont stay in Oia (wich is very crowded) FOOD: Yes, food is amazing! Me and my husband have dinner in the resort each night we`ve stayed there. ROOMS: Very spacious and Oh my God so beautiful! DECORATION: I want my house to look like this hotel please. Cons: If you visit this hotel you will never want to leave. We actually already decided to renew our vowels here. Ask me any questions you will like!
"Anniversary trip "
My husband and I stayed at Rocabella for 8 days. The staff at Rocabella are absolutely amazing. They made us feel at ease and very welcome. The hotel is beautiful, the views from the hotel are jaw dropping. Only thing I can say is I wish they had heated pools and I wish we went during the summer season.Thank you to the staff Rocabella for making our anniversary trip memorable.
