Spent three nights at Meltemi Village and it was a great stay from beginning to end. The receptionist, Roy was really great when we checked in. She explained everything that we needed to know. Manolis is the manager and he recommended a beautiful restaurant for my wife and I to celebrate our 2 year anniversary in Oia and was very responsive via email when I had questions. Andreas at the pool bar was awesome. My wife and I loved the music he was playing at the pool the entire three days we were there.
When you get to your room, it feels like you're in your own little cabana. Beautiful flowers cover the grounds and the buildings have that iconic white Santorini look. We stayed in a standard room and it was just that. Had a small kitchenette, bathroom, small TV and we had one double and one single bed. It was more than we needed considering we spend most of our time outside of the room.
The included breakfast is great. Lots of different choices ranging from baked goods to hot foods and everything was delicious.
The pool is very nice. There were a lot of sun beds available any time we went but I can see as this place gets busy they might not as available.
Getting to Fira was easy enough using the bus as there is a stop right outside the hotel. It costs $2.20 Euro each way and depending on if you get the express, takes between 20 and 35 minutes. But beware, buses coming back from Fira will be packed. My wife and I had to stand a few times. If you get claustrophobic, you may want to consider a taxi which is about 20-25 Euro.
The beach is a 5 minute walk down one street. Easy enough to get to. It's very different as it's black volcanic 'sand' that gets extremely hot. There are a ton of restaurants on the stretch of beach that cater to all nationalities. I prefer to eat local food so I can't attest to any other dishes.
Last but not least, the hotel is so thoughtful they provided a bottle of wine and a very nice note on our anniversary to help us celebrate. We really appreciated that extra effort and we definitely wouldn't even consider staying at another hotel on Santorini after that.
Overall, you can't go wrong staying at Meltemi Village.
