This hotel offers stunning, unobstructed views of the Caldera. We were speechless when we first arrived and saw the views from our villa. Waking up every morning to these breathtaking views was an amazing experience. The hotel itself is very pretty and worth exploring. At the front it has its own little church and windmill, which are both gorgeous and offer some good photo opportunities of the sunset (if you can tear yourself away from the Caldera view). There is also a large carpark available to those that hire cars.The pool area was clean and a welcome relief from the heat. Swimming in the clean, cool water overlooking the Caldera was amazing. The staff were friendly and helpful. George organised our port and airport transfers to and from the hotel, as well as a day cruise around the island. The cruise was fun- we went to Thirassia toured the volcano and swam in the hot springs.
The breakfast was essentially the same every day and included beautiful Greek yoghurt, honey and jams, bread, pastries, boiled eggs, juice and coffee. The restaurant across the road, Santorini Mou, offers traditional Greek food and has a band playing traditional music which creates a lovely atmosphere. As for the rooms, we stayed in a 2 bedroom villa as there were 5 of us. This consisted of a mezzanine level that had 2 single beds, one room downstairs with a double bed (not really large enough for 2 adults). The fifth bed was a single fold-out located in the kitchen area. The double bed and the foldout were uncomfortable, the doors very noisy, as were the stairs leading to the mezzanine, so no quiet visits to the loo in the middle of the night! The bathroom was small, and there wasn't much shelving or hooks to hang toiletry bags etc. (especially considering there were 5 of us). There's a bus stop in front of the hotel which takes you into Thira, which was very convenient. Oia town is about a 20 minute walk, but you reach a mini market in about 10 minutes. There are many lovely cafes and restaurants in town and the walk provides beautiful, classic Santorini views. We hired a car for a day to explore the island's beaches and spent some time at Perissa which is a beautiful beach and has lovely beach-side restaurants. Keep in mind that you will need transportation if you want to visit beaches every day. The view from this hotel was certainly the highlight of our trip to Greece and made up for any minor shortcomings.
