We looked at a lot of hotels before deciding on the Dream Island and have to say it was brilliant. We stayed in one of the suites for 6 days - good sized private terrace, great pool area, 5 minutes walk to the main bars/cafes, good breakfast and fantastic service.
If you're considering visiting Santorini, I'd highly recommend it!
A few tips / points:
1 - the hotel faces east so you'll catch some amazing sunrises but make sure to nip into town to catch the sunsets over the caldera. It also means that you'll catch most of the sun in the morning / early afternoon so sunbathing into the early evening isnt really on the cards late in the season
2 - make sure to let them know when you're arriving and they pick you up from the airport, and drop you back on departure (they even phoned the room unprompted the day before we left to organise a time with us)
3 - there's a church next door so do expect some early morning bells
4 - the pool area is a real winner
5 - if you're on a budget, the bars / restaurants facing away from the caldera in Fira are substantially cheaper than those with 'the view'
6 - most of the cruise ships drop off their tourists in the morning so Fira becomes really busy from then into the afternoon, but they tend to be gone by 5pm and the whole place becomes much more relaxed
