My partner and I stayed at the Villa Clio for a week, it was booked as a package tour and I was not expecting great things as the hotel is rated as a two star. However, upon arrival, I was most surprised, we were warmly greeted by Eleni and Adonis who showed us to our room which a double on the ground floor (Rm 2) with a terrace overlooking the pool which was basic but very clean and catered for our needs during our stay. There were not many drawers in the room but these could be requested if required. There was also a full size fridge in the room which was super handy for keeping salads, drinks and lunch etc. Beds were hard but comfortable.
The bathroom was clean with a small shower, toilet and sink. Although not a power shower, it was striong enough to be able to wash and rinse my long hair with ease. Although the water was not fresh water and had been desalinated which I suspect might have it harder than otherwise so I did end up using lots of shampoo and conditioner.
The breakfast is very basic consisting of bread (super fresh and very tasty!), butter and jam, tea/coffee and an orange nectar juice drink, for a small fee Eleni would have been perfectly happy to make a boiled egg or anything else desired.
Although the hotel is by a road and very close to Perissa, it was very quiet and you can sit by the pool without any hassle or passers by. The pool was very clean and well maintained.
There is a bar on the site where drinks can be purchased although we tended to go out at night and so didnt stay by the hotel for drinks.
There are great deals to be had on food in the many restaurants and do shop around for trips and hire car as all of the trip and hire car places in town seem to be selling the same trips and car hire at different prices. I found driving on the roads in Santorini fine, although we were not there at 'peak season' and I suspect it was relatively quiet compared to high summer.
A car is the best way to see the island and tour to neighbouring towns, Fira and Oia which are both beautiful but expensive; in Oia we were lucky enough to find a little polish bar/restaurant close to the car parking area where the tourist buses are parked where the food was much cheaper than on the caldera front and the food was very tasty and reasonably priced. In Perissa there were plenty of little tavernas offering meal deals where you could purchase two meals, two starters and a caraffe of local wine for approx 20 euros; a bargain!!
We will definitely be going back to Santorini!
I understand that Eleni is happy to also accept private bookings direct at the hotel which is very reasonably priced and can work out a very good deal if you get a good flight deal.
