Esperas Hotel opened its doors for the first time in 1992. At the time it was one of only 3 hotels in Oia! The name Espera is an old Greek word meaning afternoon or evening. The hotel’s name was born after witnessing the captivating moment of the sunset spreading its colors throughout the Caldera.

Beautiful, secluded sunsets viewed from traditional cave houses
We had a lovely time in Oia, the little northernmost town in Santorini with famous blue dome churches, donkeys, and the best views of the sunset. Esperas is perfectly located on the tip of the town above Ammoudi Bay which secludes it from all of the tourists roaming the town off ferries and buses for the day. The staff is very attentive and friendly and organizes activities on your behalf. The rooms are traditional cave rooms and very authentic, although not luxurious. Don't expect a 5 star accommodation, but rather, character. Breakfast was included and delivered to our balcony daily, which was very pleasant and convenient. The food is fine but the options are limited and get repetitive unless you pay more to special order breakfast items. We went in October which is the perfect time to miss the summer crowds and heat and still experience 70 degree weather, yatch rides, and the exceptional wineries. The swimming pool isn't heated so it's a little cold to use that time of year. Our biggest complaint was the lack of hot water when showering and strange smells and noise from the old plumbing. Given Greece's overall issues with their sewer system, it sometimes feels as though you are in a developing country. Overall, very nice experience at the hotel with stunning views, great location, and friendly staff and would recommend even with the plumbing issues. ”
