After reading all the stellar reviews about this hotel, perhaps our expectations were slightly elevated. This stay also came on the heels of a truly perfect experience in Mykonos at a beautifully appointed hotel...and it's hard not to compare.
White's location is spectacular. It's situated between Fira and Oia and you feel like you're suspended in the center of the Caldera. No words to describe the setting.
Close to bus stop for travel to either Fira or Oia (can also walk to Fira pretty easily).
Attentive service and good breakfast.
We had three rooms on the first level of the hotel (107,108 & 109). Very little privacy despite description of "private terrace with pool or hot tub" for rooms 108 & 109. A footpath ran right next to our "private" areas with countless passers-by throughout the day and the common pool was located less than 3 feet from us with no screening or separation.
Only a few area restaurants. We ate at one the first night-the food was good, but the servers were rude.
Rooms were a little "tired". Seating in the living area and the bed are situated very low to the ground... not very comfortable.
We stayed at 5 different hotels during our trip to Greece. White was the most expensive and the ONLY one that prohibited us from disposing of toilet paper in the toilet. Don't know about others, but we found this to be extremely gross, and at the hotel's price point, completely unacceptable. Then, to make matters worse, the housekeepers didn't empty the bathroom wastebaskets on two of our four nights which heightened our disgust even more.
I am NOT the person who likes to write bad reviews; in fact, I laugh at some of the things people complain about! As much as I wanted to agree with others about this hotel, I just can't.
