“Feels like family”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

The view is amazing. Rooms are comfortable and offer an epic view of the caldera. Staff is very friendly and family oriented. Wifi was a bit difficult though but it was manageable. All in all, the only place I'll go back to in Santorini.

Having read the reviews and seen the pictures, my wife and I were looking forward to our stay at Akrotiri's Apanemo. But it exceeded our very high expectations. The pictures do not deceive; the Apanemo sits on a site perfect for viewing the caldera, the volcano, and the rest of this extraordinarily beautiful island. The village of Akrotiri, on the southern end of the island, is quiet and charming and home to several excellent tavernas, and the hotel is a very short drive to the stunning excavations of ancient Akrotiri, buried in ash by the explosion that formed the caldera that makes the island so beautiful. At the hotel one can sit on one's private balcony and see in the distance Fira and Oiea perched on the at the mid-point and at the northern end of the island. I've saved the best for last. The family that runs the hotel makes one feel at home. Spiros seems to have infinite reserves of good humor, information. There may be places with more amenities, and there are chicer places on the island, but if I can get to Santorini again, I will be staying at Apanemo.

We had checked into this hotel for about 5 mins when it became apparent that this was somewhere very special. The welcome we received was as friendly as we have had anywhere and the owner, Spiros, was like no hotelier we had encountered, welcoming, helpful attentive and generous with his time and recommendations. When we suggested we visit a particular place he suggested that we might find this expensive, overcrowded and a little touristy, we have subsequently found out from others that this was spot on. As we had arrived at night we had to wait until the following day to appreciate the views. Spectacular! We rarely, if ever, return to a break destination. This time we may make an exception. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All have great views.

Beautiful hotel.. Very nice views. Owner is very good, helpful, gave lot of information and suggested nice restaurants. Spiros is really helpful. We definitely will keep coming back. The hotel is a hike from the bus stop but spiros kindly picked us from the bus stop.

Room Tip: Room 19 has good view of the sea, hotel and of the fields at the back.

We spent 4 nights in one of the loft apartments and loved the beautiful caldera view. Note that one of the loft apartments has power lines partially spoiling the view. Spiros is a wonderful friendly and helpful host. And their breakfast was great too. The only nitpick is they could use some new towels. Would definitely recommend for the great value, view, and host.

The gorgeous view of the Caldera and Santorini, as seen from our room windows, our balcony, and the swimming pool, was unforgettable. The hotel itself is a peace of architectural art, gently integrated in the environment. Last but definitely not least - all our requests were immediately fulfilled. Mr. Spiros, who runs the place, as well all the staff, are always available and willing to help (and actually help...) with a smile.

I have been to over 15 countries and over 80 different cities and stayed in some really great hotel but Apanemo was very special. Hotel location, hotel staff, hotel owner, hotel rooms, hotel public space, price everything was just excellent. Spiros was really helpful in every way possible. Location of the hotel was just perfect.

Room Tip: Get an apartment over looking the volcano.
