My husband and I just got back from our unforgettable honeymoon at this amazing luxury resort. We've traveled the world and have stayed at Leading Hotels, Relais and Chateaux and Fine Hotels and Resorts and none have even come close to the level of service we received at the Santo Maris Oia. Before we even arrived, Manos, the general manager, reached out to us, assuring us that our stay would be unforgettable and he could have been more correct. We were greeted upon arrival by Vasilis with refreshing spa water and a platter of Greek olives and cheese. Despina, the guest service manager, personally escorted us to the Luxury Sunset Villa we booked and gave us a tour of the gorgeous 2 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom villa, with private heated pool and jacuzzi overlooking the most breathtaking sunsets you've ever seen. The villa also had a sauna and gym and living/dining space and full kitchen downstairs with separate smaller bedroom. Despina arranged for a stunning arrangement of fresh roses and flowers, a rose petal trail leading to the master bedroom, and a bottle of Moët and Chandon with strawberries and chocolate for us. The next day they had a gorgeous bouquet of flowers for me and several traditional Easter treats. The decor is beautiful, the amenities were wonderful, the bed linens luxurious and include a pillow menu (yes, that's correct)! The entire staff was warm, friendly, hospitable and professional. Breakfast is included and is remarkable. Konstantinos took care of us every morning and was so good at recommending what we should order that we just let him order for us. The pie of the day was always delicious as well as the Cretan pancakes - a must try! Sofia coordinated a 6 hour Sunset Catamaran cruise and our car rental, along with suggesting a lot of fun and exciting things for us to do around the island. She was very informative and helpful with all of our questions. We got couples massages at the spa. Highly recommend!!! Natalia and Eleftheria were wonderful! I wish we would have had time to go back and try their famous Cretan massage. Beautiful facility, lovely music and excellent products. Their attention to detail is astonishing. I got sick after a meal out on the town and when my husband called room service to request ginger ale for me and explained, George, the restaurant manager, called us and asked if he could send over special Cretan rice, bread and tea to help soothe my stomach. He brought it over personally and did not charge us. What hotel does this!? Not only was the property stunningly beautiful with those sunsets, the ambience was upscale, the location was perfect - private yet only a 5 minute walk from the shops at Oia, and the staff was the most attentive of any other hotel. We cannot wait to go back and would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting the perfect, romantic honeymoon or getaway.
