My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights before moving onto Mykonos. I wanted to stay at an ultra luxury hotel in the heart of Oia, but I wanted to be able to relax in our plunge pool in privacy. None of the hotels along the classic Oia corridor offer this privacy without paying over 2k per night. Santo Maris is set on an expansive piece of land( expansive for Oia) with spectacular sunset views. Although we didn't opt for the more expensive room, our room sufficed with a great location next to one of the pools and expansive living room with a separate bedroom and a small kitchenette( which we obviously didn't use). Service was amazing, although we only stayed for three days, we became familiar with the staff and really appreciated their level of service and dedication to the guest. Not once did we run into one of the staff without being greeted or smiled at. This hotel is on the newer side and unlike most hotels in Oia, you don't have to walk up tons of stairs to move around the property. This hotel has a small path that takes 5 to 10 minutes walking along a lit corridor to get into the heart of the Oia village. I initially thought that not being directly in the village would be problem, but it was great. Loved having the ability to "get away" from the crowds. I will absolutely return to this luxury hotel. One gripe, they gave us champagne on arrival, but instead of Mr and Mr Bradley, the card read Mr and Mrs. Bradley. Luckily my boyfriend and I just laughed rather than taking offense, even though I made it clear who we were before arriving. This hotel like wine, is only going to get better with time!
