We stayed at Anemomilos as part of our Volcano Discovery Santorini tour, (http://www.volcanodiscovery.com/volcano-tours/travel/santorini.html) and ended up extending our stay there ...
The hotel and it's attached restaurant are family run. We got to know Spyros, the owner/manager, and his mother, Merusa (who served breakfast each morning) and began to feel like friends as much as guests.
The pool is large and clean. The rooms are airy and quaintly charming. It's the kind of place where the ocean breeze blows through gently and ruffles the curtains while you lay on the bed and relax after a long day of walking / shopping or otherwise "touring".
The food in the restaurant is fantastic. Greek yogurt for breakfast each morning, so thick it's almost a cream. Eggs fresh from Merusa's chickens. Tomatoes from her garden. And Spyros' baklava is to die for.
You can watch the famous Santorini sunset from restaurant patio.
And after the meal, take a very short walk to the marble strip with the shops in Oia. Or hop across the street to the bus stop to head for Fira, Akrotiri, etc.
After our tour ended, we had 2 nights in Santorini on our own. For one we had a night booked at a cave hotel, and were particularly disappointed after spending the first part of the trip at Anemomilos. The cave was a true cave (no windows except for the one in the door), with an awkwardly tiny bathroom; the pool was tiny and cloudy, and the staff, though nice, was much more perfunctory. We had an option to stay a second night there, but couldn't get back to Anemomilos fast enough!:)
