When booked Aigialos we never expect to get more than what we usually get in most hotels in the greek islands.As soon as we arrived to the airport we found a pleasant young man waiting for us with abig smile.The rest of the staff also welcomed us with more smiles, welcome wine served on our terrace with a fruitplate so nicely arranged that we didn t want to destroy it...Marina, Dina,Voula & Nicoletta who is doing her training to be a hotel manager.Not to forget Stavros also from a hotel school in Kriti, he served us many delicious breakfasts. Their croissants gave us some extra kilos to take back to Thes/ki with us. The best part is that we got all these in our private terrace over our House ... A!... Skiron A & B are our rooms. We strongly suggest to stay there . Their terrace is the best place to be in Santorini especially during Sunsets .The food was also a new experience to all of us.Alexandra is the chef & she does miracles out of nothing.
The whole experience was perfect. The rooms are traditionnal but spacious. No steps to go up & down (Maybe 5-6 to go to our terrace). The view amazing Caldera,volcano, The Big Blue & the best sunsets we ve ever seen ... in private!
There is only one person to blame for all this. Mr Jean-Pierre is the multi language speaking manager of this hotel. He insists that they all do only what is obvious to do for their guests, but we have experienced that they do their outmost & their best.
We are now packing to go back, but we are so sad as if we leave our new friends behind.That's it. We must come back the soonest possible & that's our promiss to Aigialos & his people. Well done everybody. We'll be back.
- 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
