We travelled as a family, with two girls (10 and 14), july 2013. We were picked up at the harbor by Michael, and he was very friendly and helpful, and drove us safely to Strogili. He helped us with the luggage, and gave us tips and advices for our stay. At Strogili we were met by Andreas, whom we had been in touch with prior to our stay. He was very friendly and helpful as well. We were given a fantastic room/apartement, with a spectacular view and our own private terrace. The room was not fantastic in the way of luxury. So if you want a "suite of luxury", this is not the place for you. But the apartement was clean and nice, and had all we needed for our 3 days stay. The girls slept in the little bedroom, and we stayed in the bed in the livingarea. Perfect. There was AC there, and a kitchenette. If I have to point out some "minus" in the apartment, it has to be the hotplates in the kitchen. They were veeeery slow, so it took forever to boil spaghetti. But we were on vacation, and had lots of time, so it was not a problem :)
Strogili is situated a short walk from the Oia center, but for us this was just perfect. A few stairs up, we had a nice little restaurant, a small grocerystore, and last but not least, the poolarea! WOW! The girls loved it, so if you are travelling with children (not babies or todlers though), this place is the very best in Santorini. Strogili has a big pool, compared to other hotels in Oia, a very nice area around, and ofcourse, a spectacular view of the Kalderea. Dont miss it!
And I cant forget to tell aobut the breakfast! We woke up in morning, called the receptiondesk, and told them we were ready for breakfast. Five-ten minutes later, the table on the terrace was covered by white linen, cups and plates were set out, and a simple but beautiful breakfast was ready for us. If thats not luxury, I dont know what is <3
So, all in all, this place was perfect for us, we would love to go back!
