            The view, the staff, the ambience

            The inclusive breakfast was limited but of high quality

            10.0

            The hotel was amazing with beautiful views and close proximity to all of the sight seeing adventures Santorini has to offer. The staff was phenomenal and we have never had such amazing service in all our lives. We can't wait to go back again!

          • Couple
            10.0

            Amazing Experience. Nice hotel. The Manager Mr. George was very helpful with arranging everything for us in Santorini. Great experience. The slh hotels are proving to be really a great choice.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            We had a good and relaxing time at Carpe Diem. We cannot praise it too highly and it was just what we wanted. The staff were great and the manager was outstanding. All round great!

          • Couple
            10.0

            cleanliness; very friendly staff; quiet place of hotel with great overview of island; breakfast at own terrace

            the really only and minor thing we didn't like was that the water of the common and private pool was very cold and that the suites below are not so private as the upper suites

          • Older travelers
            3.8

            Arriving and being „welcomed“ at Carpe Diem we can only describe as the worst hotel experience in our lifetime. Although we advised the hotel that we would arrive very early in the morning it was strange that our taxi driver had to wake up the night guard at 7.00 A.M. to let us in after waiting outside the gate for a while. We were surprised that nobody else was to be found at the reception to take care of us. Nobody really expects that the booked room is ready at this time of the day but in a 5 star hotel you expect at least a decent welcome and reception that is in line with the hotel category. Here: total failure! After 2 hours of waiting we convinced someone in the kitchen to serve us some sort of a breakfast. There was still no sight of a receptionist. For her we had to wait another hour. Finally at 10.00 h we saw her and explained our total dissatisfaction and claimed to see the reservation Manager. She apparently did not want to see us but we were promised to meet the director, what finally happened at 11.00 H. “Carpe Diem” translated, means something different! By that time we were fed up and prepared to leave the hotel again and spent our days on Santorini somewhere else. There was no courtesy at all from the director’s side and he ultimately forced us to stay, claiming a 100 % charge should we leave. After this total disappointment we strolled around in Pyrgos and finally could occupy our room at 2.00 p.m. Although Carpe Diem and the room optically leave a good first impression, it lacks attention to details or the understanding of what really makes a 5 star hotel: used glasses were never cleaned and left in our room, no rubbish bin in our bathroom, the loose toilet seat was never fixed etc. The toilet near the communal pool had no toilet seat at all. We nevertheless enjoyed our stay in Santorini, although Carpe Diem did not at all promote such feelings. We advise future guests to think twice whether they want to spend their time and money there.

          • Couple
            4.2

            The rooms were very nice

            Unprofessional manner, Luke warm breakfast, cold and uncleared plunge pool and built on a 1:3 hill that requires a car or bike to access the hotel. Not worth 4 stars, maybe 3 and certainly not worth 400 euro. Sent an email to the manager it remains unanswered.
