I can find no fault with this beautiful spot. We were a party of 7 so we had 3 villas in a group and we had a ball. Our own viewing platform away from the thousands of people who come to Oia every night to view the sunset.
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and fit. They have to drag your bags over difficult areas to get to the rooms.
Breakfast was a good mixture, and the croissants and home made jam was a match made in Oia.
The town of Oia is really nice but make sure you have good walking shoes. The cobble stone streets are no good for dress shoes. Flats only.
Swimming at Ammoudi was the highlight of our stay. Just amazingly clear ,beautiful water,the like of which I have never seen before. Getting there was a challenge and you need the special shoes to wear in water that divers sometimes use. The rocks are killers on our soft soles.
Also careful if you hire quad bikes because there are loads of petrol thieves around so all our 4 vehicles were completely drained after we had filled them for return. It was the only bad thing at this extraordinary place.
Also did a fantastic sunset cruise on an awesome red catarmaran. Great value with free wine and ouzo and a very nice BBQ. Cheap beer and free soft drinks. Lucky enough to see a pod of dolphins which was the perfect end to a beautiful afternoon. Don't swim in the hot springs with anything other than older black swimsuits. It's brown and a bit yucky.
Food was spectacular. Cheap or reasonably priced, it was all terrific. It lived up to all my dreams.
