We stayed here because of the raving reviews and we were not disappointed. I have never been served a desert course for breakfast, but we were every morning of our 5 night stay. The food was very different than an American breakfast, so each morning was a delightful new experience. It is really indescribable. You need to experience it for yourself.
Location: Shopping truly begins as you ascend the steps. You are in the shopping area, and oh what shopping. The problem is the steps. They are manageable. Another guest at Villa Renos gave us encouragement. She was in her 80's, visiting for her second time, and not complaining about the steps. I thought, if she can manage then I certainly can. I was not expecting them from any reviews or pictures.
Transportation: If you take the ferry, be prepared to take the bus and pull your luggage up a hill and on cobblestone. Vassiillis offered to arrange transportation, but I mistakenly assumed we would be able to take a taxi. If you have any trouble walking arrange transportation from the ferry in advance.
The hotel truly lives up to all the glowing reviews it has received from guests. If you need anything, just ask.
I recommend renting a car and seeing the island. We rented for one day and had a great experience. In Oia we did the sunset at a great restaurant, Fanari Villas.
We loved Villa Renos and Santorini. I would highly recommend this hotel and I hope to enjoy it again myself.
