Take a good look at a Santorini postcard with its dramatic scenery of white and blue lodges, perched atop imposing cliffs, plunging into the azure Aegean. Now go to Heliotopos, and admire the same view (and much much more) every morning when you wake up, and at night right before you go to sleep.
I came over with friends (15 people total) for a wedding and we stayed there for 3 amazing days.
In terms of location, it is difficult to find much better. Other than the breathtaking view, the hotel is only a few minutes away from the main city Fira. We were able to enjoy our peace and quiet at the hotel when we wanted (whether outside at the pool area or in it's comfortable rooms), and head straight to Fira with all its stores, restaurants and bars when we wanted some more action.
Every morning we woke up to Heliotopos' award winning breakfast. It would be a sin to come to Santorini without tasting their delicious homemade marmalades (my personal favorite: the kiwi marmalade).
And last but not least, the friendly and dedicated people who work there did everything (always with a smile) to make sure we had a memorable stay. Whether it was to suggest good restaurants or make reservations for one of the many island activities, they did it wholeheartedly.
Santorini is definitely worth another visit, and when I come back, I know where I'm going to stay.
