You arrive at Zorzis and the first thing you notice is the front garden full of beautiful red geraniums. This is the brightest most colourful display of flowers you will probably see on the island. Stepping up to the hotel you notice the pink oleander, then bright purple bouganvilla growing along the while walls. Next the scent of jasmine flowers smelling so sweet. Stepping into the hotel you notice its bright, white and immaculately clean. There is not a thing out of place at this hotel or a speck of dust to be found. Again the smell is wonderful and I wonder what could be making it smell so nice (later discover the pot pourri) I would describe the hotel as a small (think its 8 rooms) boutique, charming hotel.
The rooms are of fair size, equipped with Satelite TV, fridge, safety deposit box and air conditioning - All at No Charge. All rooms have balcony. Bathrooms are modern, nice tiles, sink and shower - and again most importantly super clean,
Rooms are cleaned daily a fresh towels provided daily.
Facilities; The pool and Jacuzzi area is good size, with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas. There is no bar at Zorzis, which I actually found to be one of the best things (no drunk / loud people to worry about spoiling your peace and quiet ) For people who like a drink though there is a really nice bar next door run by very friendly people with reasonable prices (2 euros beer / 3 euros cocktails). Spiros (the owner) is happy for you to bring anything you buy in the supermarket into the hotel. The hotel offers unlimited free Wifi.
Location; The location couldnt be better. Its on the main road in Perissa. Bus stop out the front, 100 mtrs or so to supermarket, and tavernas, 10 mtr walk to bar next door and short stroll to the beach and waterfront tavernas. Perissa is so much cheaper than the other resorts on Santorini for eating and drinking. In Perissa expect to pay 3.50 euros for Greek salad whereas Thira and Oia you can expect to pay 7.50 plus. A glass of beer 2 euros in Perissa, In Thira and Oia expect to pay 6 !
Every evening we would wonder back to the hotel and there would be Spiros (the owner of Zorzis) sitting on the veranda enjoying the warm evening air - he would always asked me and my husband if we'd like to join him which we always did and before long other guests at the hotel would join us too. Before long there would be a group of us strangers, chatting away, having a few drinks and great time. These evenings were the nicest thing and reminded me of my backpacking days where you'd be sitting round sharing stories with people you'd never met before.
Spiros is absolutely the best hotelier ever. He too gave us the feeling that we had been friends for a long time and when it was time to leave we felt sad. He really is the nicest, friendliest man and welcomes everyone like a friend. My sister was married in Santorini and even though he hadnt met her he gave us a bottle of wine to give to her !
I think 1 week in Santorini was enough for me and my husband and were not the kind of people who holiday in the same place twice but I have a feeling that one day soon we will be sitting with Spiros again on his veranda enjoying an Ouzo or two.
