Spent 3 nights at Aigialos in Santorini with my wife and was very pleased. The views from the room and property are spectacular overlooking the bay, caldera, Fira, and the entire coast. The location is great at the southern end of Fira. Walking distance to all of Fira shops and restaurants. Could not be more convenient.
The staff, Madonna in particular, are outstanding. They arranged upon request everything from airport and ferry transfers, to wine-tasting tours, to restaurant recommendations and reservations, to catamaran dinner sailing, and taxis. Perhaps the best service we've ever experienced.
Breakfast, included in the package, was outstanding - daily fresh fruit, omelets, coffee, juice and fresh baked breads and croissants.
The room itself was just okay. It was clean and pretty much as advertised but not more. We had requested a king but ended up with two twins pushed together. Would recommend something higher than the main level though as we were woken up a couple of times by early morning activity after leaving the windows open for the cool evening breezes.
Aigialos is perfect if you are looking for a place to base a Santorini visit. Located in a great spot with great breakfast and spectacular views. The donkeys shuttling back and forth at the start and end of the day are charming. Great access to all of the island with wonderful staff to help. Not a resort though - tiny pool and little to do on premises.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Aigialos Collection consists of sixteen, renovated neoclassical houses that were originally the fine homes of the island's noble captain families. The architecture and design of the houses bring to life the traditional way of life of the island's nobility. Restored to perfection by master masons using local volcanic stone and coloured lime plaster, the houses are linked by cobbled walkways. Situated on the rim of the caldera, sheer cliffs that rise from the sea, the hotel overlooks the island's famed volcano. ... more less
