I must first echo what the vast majority of reviewers say about this hotel. It is beautifully designed, clinging to the cliffs of the caldera overlooking the Aegean Sea with its phenomenal sunsets. The staff are friendly and go to extreme lengths to respond to guests' requests and concerns. Especially deserving of a mention is the front desk manager Hornella, whose personal attention and concern for our well being and overall enjoyment helped make our stay a great success.
This was our second trip, the first having been arranged by a travel agent. When we arrived we were told that we were the second guests of the season and so our room had been upgraded to a superior room. Although small, the view of the Aegean was something we never tired of and matched the room we stayed in the first time, and that was the very reason we had returned. However we also realised that, if we had not had that unexpected upgrade, we might not have had a room with the view that had brought us back. I think that in future it would be worth making a phone call to the hotel to confirm that our expectations would be met. Better that than disappointment on arrival.
For any prospective guests with mobility issues, be warned, the pathway up the cliff to the nearest taxi pick up point is about a fifteen minute walk. My wife had a hiking injury from the previous week and so any trip into Imerovigli took us about half an hour. Not the hotel's issue but one to be considered in the overall enjoyment of the holiday.
All in all we would return to Regina Mare.
