We stayed in this hotel for a little less than a week in October, it was a wonderful experience. The rooms are huge, and with very nice details, the infinity pool is amazing, breakfast is served outside with a spectacular view. The service is exceptional, from the very friendly breakfast service (if I remember correctly - Jenny), to the wonderful Maria at the reception which was always helping out with reservations and suggestions.
Highly recommended for some relaxing days - we will definitely be back.

“ Exclusive and romantic hotel with 5 star view and service ..a few small adjustments would make this even better.

We stayed in three hotels in Santorini during our visit and I just loved this lovely upscale boutique hotel. To me It felt more exclusive and elegant (although slightly less funky) than the white cave hotels in Oia. The hotel is built from a lot of black rock so as other reviewers have mentioned the photos on the website do not do it justice. but actually when you get there it is really beautiful, extremely dramatic and architecturally fits with the environment surrounding it very well.
The hotel has wow factor the moment you step inside the relaxing and pretty white lobby made even more lovely by a gorgeous chapel that is a room carved out to your left.. this is such a romantic hotel that oozes charm, the infinity pool is fabulous and and the caldera view is breathtaking. That view never gets old and meals are taken out on a lovely terrace. Our evening meal was wonderful with a great menu, breakfast was to die for!
During our stay the staff could not have been kinder or more welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble and in Covid times they followed all the rules of mask wearing unlike other establishments we visited.
We were lucky enough to stay in a suite with a hot tub it was room 19 and I???m so glad we had this room. It was away from the bar area so quiet and it felt very secluded. It was lovely to hear the birds singing in the trees below us at sunset whilst sipping a pink lemonade mocktail which was delicious. We were able to enjoy our hot tub privately without guests walking past -A few bits of advice -Some of the rooms are on the pool level and nearer the bar so less private, but most rooms were tucked away so ask for one away from pool. Also to note, hotel is not in walking distance of a village so car or taxi is needed if you want to go anywhere.
That aside ,what would make this one of the best hotels in the world rather than a very romantic four and a half star boutique hotel with five star view and service ??
Sadly the pillows were not good enough for a hotel of this standard and I would advise you to take your own until this is remedied and for me, the bed could have been a bit more comfortable , during our stay at least, the water in shower was always warm but not hot.
Despite these small kinks don???t let them put you off, I really loved this hotel and would recommend it to anyone - we also stayed in Oia and if you are hell bent on staying in a white cave hotel there I???d also suggest staying here for a few days after as it???s more relaxing, and private and the sunsets and view is better despite what guide books say!
San Antonio is a lovely romantic hotel and memories of staying there will remain with long after my trip is over.
