Katerina and john offer free transfers to and from the port when you arrive so make sure you take advantage of it and organise beforehand as it is mayhem at the port with hundreds of people everywhere yelling.
The hotel is about a 5 min walk from perissa black beach but 20mins by bike to get to fira which is central to the most popular clubs, restaurants etc. it'll take an hour to get to oia to watch the beautiful sunset but is well worth it just be extra careful when riding home as the roads are pretty dangerous.
24 hour bakery across the road (has the best food!!) and a supermarket next door. To hire mopeds or quads, go next door as its johns son and he'll give you a cheaper rate as your a customer. you need a bike license for a moped.
the wifi is ok.. you need to walk around the swimming pool to find the strongest point, there is no wifi in the rooms. I stayed in a 10 share, was very crowded and hard to make use of the bathroom but the private rooms are better. if you like quieter areas, you'll enjoy perissa. Fira is pretty full on. John is absolutely lovely and 5 nights is plenty in santorini! you could even do 3 or 4 and you can cover the whole island in that amount of time
