The Best Budget Santorini Hotels

This post is focused on the best budget Santorini hotels with short introductions of the villages they are located and the best attributes of the hotels.

Santorini Island is one of those magical places on earth that you must visit at least once in your lifetime!

The Santorini views, the Caldera sunsets, the ambiance of a magical Cycladic Island, the bougainvilleas, the imposing white Greek orthodox Churches, make the island a fairy tale place.

And how best can you enjoy your stay in Santorini? By staying at fantastic budget Santorini hotels at the best possible reasonable prices – because you have to know this in advance: Santorini is not a cheap island to visit.

Note for Mobility Impaired People and Visiting Santorini:

I recently found out about Seatrac in Greece from a friend of mine who is in a wheelchair. On the website I discovered that there are 2 beaches in Santorini with this amazing system, in Perissa and Kamari. I couldn’t find a budget hotel offering suitable rooms but I did find 2 excellent 5-star hotels that I highly recommend. See the hotels and about Seatrac in the Kamari and Perissa sections below.

Kamari Beach with SeaTrac For the Mobility Impaired

There are over 130 beaches in Greece that have installed the Seatrac system so that people with mobility issues can have independent access to the sea. In Santorini, there are 2 beaches that you can choose from, Kamari and Perissa.

I highly recommend Costa Grand Resort & Spa, a fantastic 5-star hotel, reasonably priced, located right in front of the beach and a few minutes far from the SeaTrak Mechanism.

Firostefani is the extension of Fira, so close nowadays to each other – due to building every single free space between them – so that it is very hard to find their borders. A magical place to visit, as it is everywhere you go in Santorini.

Damigos Caldera World

I have included Damigos Caldera World as a budget hotel because of its stunning views of the caldera and its very reasonable prices. The rooms are stylish, beautifully furnished, and spacious and they bring your breakfast in your room to savor in the caldera view.

Perissa sandy beach is the famous black beach of Santorini, awarded with a Blue Flag. It is about 13 kilometers (8 mi) away from Fira, on the southeast coast of Santorini, and is easily accessible by car or bus.

The Perissa beach is very popular because of the black lava sand, crystal clear waters, and the imposing mountain on the back. It is a fully organized beach with sunbeds, umbrellas, plenty of seaside cafes, bars, traditional taverns and restaurants, all kinds of water sports, and a nice diving area.

Lucia Villas

Lucia Villas is a traditional Cycladic hotel, only 300 meters from Perissa Beach, on a quiet small street, with friendly staff and owners.

I personally love the swimming pool, with the impressive mountain view because if one day you don’t feel like going to the beach you can chill out by the pool. The good life….
