We spent 3 days at this hotel and came out with mixed feelings. The hotel is positioned high up on the Imerovigli cliffs, overlooking the beautiful Santorini Caldera.
The room is adequate if somewhat small (we stayed in an "apartment", though it is hard to really call it that). Our room did not have a pool which we thought would be ok since the hotel has a pool, but when we arrived we discovered that the hotel pool is extremely deep, making it impossible to stand in. This is problematic for people with small children, like us. When added to the fact that the balcony of our room was so narrow that it made it impossible to hide from the sun, the result was that we really couldn't hang out at the hotel at all. When you pay 220 euros a night, you expect to be able to use your room and we simply were not.
Our main other complaint is that for this price we would also expect breakfast to be included and it wasn't. In general, the food options were very limited and highly overpriced (no greek food at all and overall prices were double the prices in the surrounding restaurants).
Other than that, the place was nice, well maintained and the service wad very friendly and nice. The village is also beautiful with amazing views, though not as special as Oia, which we highly recommend.
