This is a sweet hotel with excellent views of the sea from the villas. The hotel rooms are cozy, some with views of neighboring Pyrgos. I would suggest staying in the villas however if you want quiet. We took a room in the hotel which had an extra room with a sofa (we needed two twin beds) and a balcony but the noise from lobby was hard to drown out. Our friends stayed in the villas which include a jacuzzi tub and patio area.
Suzanna at the front desk was delightful and helpful with booking reservations and answering our many questions. The manager, Gregory Stanits, was always present with a smile and welcoming personality. I don't think he ever sleeps! You can walk 500m to two excellent restaurants but have Suzanna make reservations for you, they get packed. A short taxi ride will take you to Fira but I strongly suggest that you rent a car on Santorini, there is just too much to see.
