So, I'll go with Pros and Cons:
* AMAZING views. They're on the Volcano side of the island, and from what we saw, it's definitely the side to be on for breathtaking views.
* Great location. We were walking distance to anything we wanted to get to in Fira, and were we really motivated, we could have made it up the hill to Imerovigli too. (Though the hills going up that way were pretty intense for the casual non-hiker kinda person. You'd better be in shape if you wanted to walk up there!!)
* Very Helpful staff. Everything we asked of them, they took care of right away, and the porter kinda guy that carried our bags to and from our room was GREATLY appreciated given the number of stairs (which there's a lot of, as all of the hotels are on the side of a cliff essentially).
* Room size was a little smaller than I expected from looking at the online pics. We were in a Captain's House room, and when I walked in my immediate reaction was...huh. I mean they weren't so small that it was a problem, and now that I'm going back and looking at the web site again, I s'pose I should've looked a bit closer, but still, despite the name of them... "house"... the Captain's House rooms are definitely not really large, so don't expect a huge suite style room. Captain's Cabins might be a better name for them...
* The "private" terrace was not at all private. I mean, it wasn't shared like the pool area is, but it IS shared with the other two Captain's House rooms, and there's a set of stairs that goes right through the middle of it that people come and go on fairly often. So there isn't really a lot of privacy to be expected.
All in all, the pros definitely out-weigh the cons. It's a great place to stay, and I would definitely stay there again!!
