  • Santorini was a dream destination for us and Ambition Suites made this dream true! We searched a lot before in order to choose our accomodation in Santorini and finally we did the best choice. The location is the best on the island. We had seen many photos online, but when we arrived we could not believe how stunning was the view! Our suite was tastefully decorated and modern. It had a large private balcony with the best sea view on the planet, overlooking the caldera and the volcano. It has also a private outdoor hot tub. We were happy to realise that our balcony offered us more privacy than all other nearby properties in Oia. The breakfast was delicious and served at our desired time. We cannot thank enough Iveta and the rest of the stuff for their great hospitality and the personilised service. We really enjoyed our stay and we are already dreming our next visit!

  • Needless to say, the view of the caldera from our suite was amazing. But what really made Ambition Suites stand out was the personalised service of the staff. Iveta was always ready to greet us with brilliant smiles and helpful tips about her favourites spots on Santorini. I didn’t mention to the resort that I was there to celebrate my birthday but she spotted my birth date from my passport and surprised us with a bottle of champagne. And she executed perfectly my request for a bouquet of flowers to surprise my Girlfriend. Pana the driver cum bellboy cum handyman was friendly and hilarious (and looks like Adam Sandler). They truly made us feel at home in Santorini. Hope to go back again.

  • My wife and I just spent 2 nights, 3 days in Santorini and stayed at Ambition Suites. I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical going in with the beautiful photos and all 5 star reviews, could it really be that good? Well it is and then some. We arranged to have an airport pickup for our flight that got in at 7:45am. George was there waiting for us when we arrived. When we got to our hotel our room wasn’t ready but Iveta welcomed us in, took our bags, and gave us drinks, all right around 9am. We were told our room would be ready around 10:30 so we went for a walk around the beautiful Oia. When we got back, Iveta brought us to our room and our jaws dropped. The private balcony with hot tub overlooking the caldera has got to be one of the world’s most beautiful sights. Especially at sunset it’s just stunning. Iveta brought us into the room and showed us all the little nifty things… the nespresso machine, the complimentary drinks in the fridge, how to fill out the breakfast menu, how to use the hot tub, etc. With the hotel only consisting of four suites, it’s the perfect mix of personal service and privacy. The breakfast is another amazing feature. The night before you fill out the breakfast menu which has plenty of options and it’s all set up on your balcony at your desired time. The hotel is also in a perfect location, right on the edge of Oia. There’s lots of restaurants and shops right outside the hotel but it’s not located in the narrow middle part of Oia which got really packed on days where cruise ships docked in Fira. The only warning I should give is there’s a lot of stairs you need to go up and down to get from your room to street level, but if you’re not good with stairs you might want to rethink going to Santorini in the first place. All in all this place is perfect from start to finish.

  • This was our first stop to our 2 week honeymoon and it was amazing! Oia does not offer many hotels with privacy but this one was the best for that. We had a hot tub outside over looking the caldera. There is room cleaning twice a day and hot tub was cleaned everyday as well. Hotel is in a good spot for excursion pick ups as well as late night options since it’s the closest to the restaurant that’s open the latest. The best part is the breakfast which is served at your desired time and what you want. It was usually pretty heavy that we only ate twice a day.

  • Special service, off the beaten path at the end of town of oia, some other hotels not as private. Comfortable jacuzzi in every room, adjust the temperature to what you like. The jacuzzi cleaner is the best, oh he will also pick you up from airport/ferry very sweet cute guy!! Good value, what else??? Oh the view! Hope to return! Thank you

  • Living in Dubai we do look for a big wow factor as we have so many amazing hotels. However the Ambition suites was a WOW! There are 4 suites at Ambition, built into the side of the Caldera and the view from these suites is absolutely stunning…. The suite itself is large with everything you would need along with the large outdoor area and hot tub jaccuzzi to top it off! Iveta was super helpful before we arrived and during our stay gave us an exceptional welcome and one of the best holidays ever, thank you for an exceptional holiday!

  • Ivetta, the hotel manager, was the most welcoming and accommodating employee! She was available to contact with any questions at all times during our stay. Transportation to and from the airport was included. She arranged our dinner reservations and was a fabulous concierge.

  • Can’t even begin to find the words to describe this place. It is in such a perfect location. In our whole 6 days in Santorini we didn’t see anywhere else we would have rather stayed. Our room was beautiful and so peaceful with the most breathtaking views. Yet we were conveniently close to everything and the centre of Oia. Would 100% recommend this hotel to anyone. Me and my partner would also like to thank Iveta for looking after us and making my birthday so special. She went above and beyond. All the staff were so accommodating and nothing was too much to ask. Perfect stay.

  • Ervetta was absolutely wonderful in helping us with restaurants and excursions. The view can not be beat! Everyone was so accommodating. Ambition Suites is on the Caldera side so the views are amazing; also the steps to the main strip Oia wasn’t too bad. Will stay again I hope!!

  • Everything was absolutely perfect starting by a warm welcome, a very careful staff, a tasty breakfast and the most impressive, an outstanding view on caldera. I really recommend it, just take care to go during a sunny season.

  • I can not find the right words to describe our dreaming experience in Ambition Suites. Ivetta has planned everything for us. The service is this place is second to none. The location is so unique, out of this planet. Our Suite overlooked the ocean and caldera bay. We loved the heated external jacuzzi in our private balcony. The wifi was fast and the bed was really comfortable. The best point was that although our suite was quiet and it offerred great privacy, at the same time we needed only three minutes walk to be in the bussiest points of Oia Village. We highly suggest this place and we can not wait to go back in Santorini and Ambition Suites.

  • My wife and I spent 10 days on Santorini and did not see another hotel that we would rather have stayed at. And while the all-around experience exceeded all expectations, there were a few parts of our stay at Ambition suites that stood out. 1- Iveta (and all staff) made everything so easy. If we wanted to book a dinner, cruise, tour, Iveta took care of it. She made sure to get us the best tables at the best restaurants, and made our trip so special. 2- The location. Our jaws dropped as soon as we walked up to the reception area, and again when we saw our balcony with hot tub. But I’m sure that could happen at many hotels in Oia. Ambition suites is at the very end of the main walking path. Away from the day tours and heavy foot traffic, but still connected to the path making anywhere in Oia an easy walk. 3. The room & balcony and breakfast. It was our honeymoon and we wanted to be able to explore, but also relax when we wanted to. Having breakfast on the balcony or sitting in the hot tub enjoying the view of the caldera made our relaxation time feel like sightseeing. We are already planning our trip back.

  • When writing reviews about such places it is always a great headache! How to write something new that was not said before? ;)well…i totally reconfirm what most ppl said;- great location (start of buildings just by very nice piazza near church),- great location just by bus stop and road (very handy in case you get car or take a day tour where you need to be picked up),- very much secluded area (when trying to find a place in oia i was really concerned about paying a lot of money and ending up in some luxury ‘slum’ where everyone is looking onto each other! not the case at ambition suites,- really good b’fast service and food,- extremely helpful host (Iveta and the team including George the driver/maintenance and the cleaning lady who also brought us b’fast),- very clean rooms,- great shower,….and ow most of all the view is just spectacular, magical, no photo or postcard will prepare you well enough for what you are going to experience here!we picked a low season where weather is not that great so the way you feel in that magical terrace is what makes the whole difference!simply put…just got back home but can’t wait to return!

  • Everything about Ambition Suite exceeded our expectation. The location, the room, the view, the patio, the hot tub, the breakfast, the comfort, the privacy and the above all, the hospitality. Hands down the best decision we made for our honeymoon in Santorini.Ambition Suite is situated right at the beginning of the marble pedestrian street that extends through the entire village of Oia. Unlike the other hotels lined up along this street, no one can peek over your patio – you’re promised the ultimate privacy while having direct view of the caldera and quick access to the main footpath. A delicious breakfast of your choice is served every morning at your desired time (which you can change daily if you wish) and the room is serviced impeccably twice a day.The level of the team’s professionalism and hospitality were pure excellence. George picked up us at the airport and carried both our 40+lbs luggages up and down the stairs to the hotel. Iveta welcomed us with a glass of chilled white wine and checked us in promptly. The room was decorated with rose petals and a complimentary champagne bottle was available to enjoy upon our arrival. From then on during our entire stay, anything we needed, they were always there to make it happen. Lena served our breakfast right on time every morning and when we asked for laundry service, we came back to the room with all of our clothes folded neatly on the bed.There’s so much more to mention but in short, it was the ultimate honeymoon experience. We truly felt like kings and queens. Thanks again Iveta, George and Lena. We’ll surely be back.*We stayed 6 days in the Temptation Suite in late Sep to early Oct.

  • We stayed here for 5 days and 4 nights during their off peak season. We couldn’t be happier as the weather is lovely. Where should I start? The staff from Iveta, George and the lovely lady who clean our suite are all lovely. They make sure your entire stay is perfect. Iveta explains everything from top to bottom.The suite itself is perfect for honeymooners as it is private. The position is on the side of the cliff and no one is passing beside your suite (which can be a bit of a problem in some accommodation in Santorini). The fridge is always stock with beer and soda (free of charge). Jacuzzi’s temperature is always warm and we enjoy it with the amazing view.The location is near to a church and you have to go down few steps to reach the reception/suites. Few steps away from the church is a bus stop to Fira and also the start of Oia’s shops, restaurants and attractions. The breakfast is $20 per person but if you are not a big breakfast person you can try the bakery nearby, 2-3mins walk. The bakery opens at 6:30 am and bake fresh Greek breads and also serves coffee.I highly recommend this suite to everyone!!! We can’t wait to come back

  • This is one of the best and most beautiful hotel experiences we have ever had. Each of the four suites has its own jacuzzi and the most amazing views of the Caldera. Situated at the very beginning of the marble walk, you are away from the madding crowd but still conveniently close to experience all that Oia has to offer.We must also call out a special mention to Iveta who was absolutely wonderful before and during our stay! Her restaurant recommendations, suggestions on a very special catamaran sunset cruise and her friendly but professional service completely exceeded our expectations. The rest of the team, George and Lena also deserve special mention for the professional but discrete service they were always ready to provide. This is the epitome of the true boutique hotel experience in paradise!

  • This has to be one of the best locations in Oia. Views are incredible and its right on the marble road of restaurants and shops. Iveta was extremely helpful right from the beginning. Our airport pick up and drop off was very well-organized (thanks George!). Room was large and well-accompanied. Breakfast was ready every morning right on time and offered a wide variety of options. I would stay here again and again!

  • Thanks Iveta to you and your team. Everything from the room description to your help/info & booking reservations for us was fantastic. The room we had was temptation suite and it was beyond our expectations. Included in the price is daily water, mini bar restock and breakfast delivered to your room with a great choice/selection to pick from and delivered at a time of your choosing. Easy distance to the marble path through Oia and yet far enough away to get a good level of distance from the hubbub. We would recommend Ambition if we know any friends travelling to Santorini !

  • Iveta and the team were fantastic, from the emails before our arrival, to the airport transfers, the warmest of welcomes, table recommendations and reservations, car hire and vineyard tour. The accommodation was spotless with all the amenities we could need…..the celebratory bubbles were much appreciated and having the coffee machine was great! Breakfast being set on the veranda each day looking out to the Caldera view was simply stunning then hopping into the Jacuzzi was fabulous! The staff were attentive but also discrete, just a little knock on the door to say breakfast had been set. The steps to the suite were welcome exercise after all the delicious food and drink we consumed during the day! Highly recommended and definitely want to return.

  • My husband and I just returned from a five-night stay at Ambition Suites. We were hesitant to book at first since it had few reviews at the time, but I am SO glad we did. Everything was perfect. Iveta and her team really go out of their way to make sure every detail is covered for your stay. We had Iveta make dinner, car and airport transfer reservations (since we had to leave at 3:30 a.m.!) and she did everything for us and confirmed all of our reservations. The hotel is in the perfect location in Oia. It is right off the footpath but still private – nobody can look down and peer into the rooms or pools like you can with most hotels in Oia. It is a two minute walk to the main walkway and all of the restaurants. The view is gorgeous, the rooms are quiet and we’re so glad we chose to stay here!

  • Breathtaking to say the least and a private paradise in the heart of Oia! From the moment we arrived we were in awe of the view. We also noticed during our stay that the suites are tucked away down on a private road and so there is no foot traffic to disturb you! Unlike some other places we saw during our walk around oia. Iveta made us feel so welcomed from the minute we arrived. Her professionalism and enthusiasm is next to none. She booked us into a busy sunset view restaurant that day and gave us some great recommendations and explained everything we needed to know perfectly. The breakfast choices were excellent. Room cleaned without us being there was well timed. I feel like everything is so well thought of. The bed was a huge round king size, I only got out of it in the morning because the view is incredible! And private jacuzzi on the terrace, very romantic. The perfect setting for coupes. I could sit on the large cushioned chair or in the jacuzzi all day long and read a book while admiring the view of the Caldera! Ahhhh amazing. We stayed for 1 night as this is our big backpacking trip but we are already planning for our wedding anniversary return! Can’t wait to come back one day!

  • This place is beautiful. The staff are incredible. They helped us in every aspect and made amazing recommendations. It is very small and personable. The rooms are absolutely beautiful. Very highly recommended. I will definitely return was the highlight of my trip.

  • Absolutely stunning views, location and very friendly staff. We really loved the breakfast on our balcony every morning. The location is fantastic, just at the starting point of oia but still away from the busy tourist area! Just superb! You get a free mini bar, coffee machine and taxi transfers to the airport and back!

  • Waooo is Ambition Suites, Iveta is great she made everything for our stay to be perfect, first she send the driver to pick up us at the airport he was excellent to, when we arrive she show everything and gave us all the tips including where to go and have dinner.The view is great and the property is in excellent conditions, I would definitely recommend this option.

  • The Ultimate in privacy and seclusion in an open area. For anyone going to Santorini it’s worth stating in OIA and driving to Fira. Although this hotel only had 4 suites, it’s cliff side location is perfect and everyone’s dream come true! The white cave like rooms was more than I expected. The service and friendliness was perfection. I’ll pass on all big name hotels for this intimate setting everytime. The hotel is close to all activities, shipping, and restaurants. Clean. Amazing views. Perfect for girls getaway, couples, and honeymooners! It’s a Must stay.

  • Ambition Suites is located in the perfect location. We visited Santorini for our honeymoon and this hotel was the best choice. We enjoyed the tasty breakfast and the great view from our balcony. The room interior was elegant and beautifully decorated. Iveta and the rest of the staff are so friendly and full of great suggestions. We will be back soon! Highly recommended!

  • What a wonderful, wonderful stay at Ambition Suites. I can only agree with all the previous reviewers, saying how great was our experience from the moment we arrived until the sad times we had to leave. We stayed at Ambition Suites for 3 nights and then moved to Fira for another 2 nights, we both wished we could stay all 5 nights at our beautiful suite (who could have known?). Now we know and we will next time we visit (soon hopefully). Our beautiful suite (Temptation Suite) left us speechless – spacious with a lots of light (with caves style room we really didn’t know what to expect), very clean, comfortable – everything was exactly where it needed to be and as the photos show. Talking about Oia it’s impossible not to loose your speach because of gorgeous views to Caldera cliffs and the sea. Ambition Suites just has it all. Incredible views. Our private patio with our own jacuzzi, where we could spend hours. Very relaxing and intimate. We both agree that Ambition was a perfect choice for our honeymoon and we will recommendthe place to anyone looking for ideal couples getaway.Wonderfull breakfast served to our terrace every morning with delicious Greek goods, was a perfect way to start each day. It was great to have the option to select our breakfast preference and to be able to enjoy our favorite foods with Greek sences. Hotel staff was exceptionally helpful and always so welcoming. They took care of every detail, they all went out of their way to make sure we are having a great time and we have everything we need for that. Excellent food recommendations, plenty of things to do and see around, with limited time, we got so lucky to receive the best tips and were able to enjoy the most of it in a best way. Also, an important tip, do not forget to contact them for your transport arrangements. They picked us up at the airport and we are very greatful for their help with our suitcases (Santorini has stairs everywhere!!! Remember that when packing heavily and thinking either you should wear your high heels).Overall excellent experience. We are already planning our return. Thank you for making our stay so special and unforgetable.

  • My boyfriend and I stayed here for 1 night in Oia. Iveta was so welcoming and gave us a quick overview of everything we should know about Oia and Santorini before starting our visit. She also gave us a quick list of places to check out in the area and things we should do during our short time there.The hotel itself was very clean and the wifi was good. We enjoyed a private caldera view. We particularly liked how this hotel is on the caldera but is at the start of the pedestrian path (i.e. Less foot traffic and less tourists around– more secluded and quiet). Would definitely stay here again. It is also half the price of more expensive hotels but you still have a great view, with a great private breakfast and away from the tourists.

  • We stayed in Ambition Suites in October while looking for our wedding venue and WOW this place was beautiful. We have visited Santorini many of times and Ambition Suites is definitely one of our favourites. Firstly the hotel staff are brilliant and really can’t do enough for you. The lady who checks everyone in/out was a genuine lovely lady who we happened to bump into one night when she was out with her friends, we were having our dinner and she went out of her way to make sure we were doing well and enjoying our food. The guy who carried our cases up and down the steps when we was checking in/out was amazing, I don’t know what we would have done with our cases without his help. The lady gave us plenty of good tips about where we could eat and drink close to the hotel and even give tips for our wedding including wedding venues, wedding planners, make up artist etc.We really loved this hotel and the staff, we hope to see you again soon!

  • The location of this hotel is second to none! We loved the view of our private balcony. Many times we preferred to stay in our suite instead of going out. Rooms are well decorated and equipped. Staff, especially Iveta, are very professional and friendly. They were very attendive while at the same time they offered us the privacy that we needed. It was our dream to visit Oia and Ambition Suites was the best choice!

  • Ambition Suites was over our expectations in all terms! From the first moment that we arrived, we realised what a perfect choice we have made! Location is truly the best and the view is unbelievable! The suite was minimal, traditional and classy. Breakfast was served every day in our balcony. Iveta and her team are very friendly, professional and helpful. We are already dreaming to go back!

  • Our stay with Ambition Suites was fantastic. Ivette made us feel very welcome and comfortable with the feeling that anything we needed would be taken care of. Her suggestions for restaurants and things to do were honest and spot on. Arranging things like renting a car and transport to and from the airport were made very easy and hassle free with her handling it. The room was great and hot tub perfect after a long day of adventuring around the island. And major props to George for getting us to the airport in the early morning hours for our departure flight.

  • Everything about this hotel met or exceeded our expectations. The location, staff, rooms, and service were everything you could hope for. Ivetta (hopefully I spelled that correctly) is an incredible person, and really helped with our stay. Whether we needed advice, recommendations, reservations, tips, or ideas on what to do on any given day, she was there to help and extraordinarily friendly. We would absolutely stay here again if we return to Oia.

  • We went on our honeymoon and we couldn’t be happier with our experience! Transport from and to the airport was arranged which made things so much easier! George waited for us and took as to the hotel. To say the room, the terrace, the jacuzzi and the view are amazing, is an understatement! Yvetta (hope I spelled it right)! Was great to us! Gave us great food recommendations (Melitinis meatballs are not to miss! And Flogas shrimp and lamb ????????????, metaximas food was also the best!) She also arranged our boat trip with Santorini Sailing Club ???????????????????????? and helped us rent a Smart Car (they came to the hotel to drop the car off and do the paperwork and we only had to leave the keys with the staff to return it). This is single handedly the best hotel for couples and its an experience to enjoy!

  • We stayed in an Emotion Suite with a private outside hot tub. This was one of the best places we have ever stayed. Our suite was luxury, minimalist and modern! At the same time it had all the architecture elements someone expects from a cave house in Oia. All rooms have breathtaking ocean panoramic view! The breakfast was delicious and it was delivered to your private balcony at your preferred time. The hospitality of Iveta was incredible and all staff was helpful and attentive. Hotel is perfectly located on the privacy of cliffs, overlooking the caldera and right in the best part of Oia village. Stop searching and book your stay in Ambition Suites for an unforgettable experience!

  • Η διαμονή, το service, η καθαριότητα, το πρωινό και ποσά ακόμα θετικά μπορείς να πεις για αυτό το μέρος. Ήταν μια αξέχαστη διαμονή σε ένα υπέροχο μέρος, με υπέροχους ανθρώπους να προσπαθούν να σου προσφέρουν. Ανυπομονώ πραγματικά να βρεθώ κάποτε σε αυτό το μοναδικό μπαλκόνι με την υπέροχη θέα που σε μαγεύει.

  • Αυτό το ξενοδοχείο πλοιρεί όλες τις προυποθέσεις για υπέροχες διακοπές!!!!!! Εξαιρετικό πεντακάθαρο δωμάτιο, με υπέροχη θέα!!!!! Ο Τάσος στην reception εξαιρετικός και πολύ ευγενικός καθώς και ο Μιχάλης (ο οδηγός), ο οποίος μας παρέλαβε από το αεροδρόμιο για να μας πάει κατ’ευθείαν στο ξενοδοχείο επίσης ευγενέστατος. Το πρωινό καταπληκτικό και γενικά όλα ήταν τέλεια!!!!!!!!!!
