We stayed at this hotel as part of our honeymoon and chose it for the views it has, especially from the room. I had read from some other reviews that there are steps, but did not realize how steep the steps are exactly - so if you have any problems walking lots of steps, this isn't the hotel for you -- it's actually more of a hike to get to the top where the main walking part of Oia is. The good thing is that they have great staff who help transport your luggage to and from on the steps.
Also, I requested a caldera view, and actually only had a partial view. A partial view is fine, but I felt a little mislead by the description, and there are actually only a few rooms that have a full caldera view. Breakfast was 10 euro per person delivered to the room, which for a hard boiled egg and some cheeses seemed a bit overpriced. There are many, many restaurants near by where you can get much more for the same price so we went with those (omelette, frappe, yogurts, etc). The water in the shower also took quite some time to warm up, and even then at times shut off completely, sometimes mid-shower. Management said this was because many people were using it. Lastly, the pool area. There were only 2 sunbeds right in the pool area the first day, and then a 2 more brought out the next day for a total of 4 beds. Only a couple of them can fit under the one umbrella by the pool facing the caldera though, and in the VERY hot summer weather, you just cannot be in the sun that long. Overall, the location was good and the views stunning, but the property itself can use some improvement.
