Agali Houses are a classic Santorini experience. It looks like they used to be actual homes (each staircase down the cliffside has a street name) and so they are quite spacious by European hotel standards. We stayed in a Studio Sea View, and it was amazing. Little front room and kitchenette, then a back bedroom and large bathroom. Our semi-private balcony opened up to an incredible view of the caldera.
Be prepared to get some exercise going to and from the hotel, as they are located a good ways down the cliff. The porter will meet you, hoist your bags like they are nothing, and make you feel like a ridiculous fat tourist by scampering up and down some couple of hundred steps with your luggage. The hotel staff meet you with fresh juice and walk you down (and down, and down) to your room where you'll get a nice half-bottle of wine.
The wi-fi extends to the rooms in theory but not in practice (at least, not for us), so you'll just have more time to gaze at the sea. Breakfasts are very nice, with table service. Their pool area is lovely (and where the wi-fi is strongest, hilariously). The whole hotel is gloriously quiet and peaceful.
We loved it and would go again in a heartbeat, assuming we spend some time saving up first. You definitely get what you pay for here.
