From the moment of our arrival in Oia (just past midnight) to the time of our departure, Takus, Demitra and Romi were the perfect hosts. They made every effort to assure that my wife and my stay in Santorini was exceptional. From helping secure the best tables in restaurants to recommended places to visit they never had a misstep in six days.
I think it would be very hard to find a property anywhere in the world with a better view. The only downside of the spectacular view is a number of visitors to the island will walk past during the day to be able to photograph it.
The property was very clean. We stayed in the Venetian room which was exactly as described on their website. The Sailing Suite has a larger part of the shared terrace and slight larger accommodation but it really doesn't matter. Both of these suites (and I suspect the Captain's Suite that we did not see) were superb.
When they say that breakfast is included it is a huge understatement. Every morning we were served a delicious breakfast with your choice of numerous items...many of them fresh from Santorini (anything made with the local tomatoes should not be missed). The breakfasts were so filling my wife and I only actually ate one lunch on Santorini (it was included with our Sunset Sail).
I'm sure there are other hotels that are less expensive, but this property exceeded all expectation and really made our visit fabulous.
