It has been two weeks since our return from Anastasis, and we are still dancing! We miss you, Despina, Irini, and Anna Maria! We cannot wait to return to incredible Santorini and there is no other place we would stay than Anastasis. You typify the beauty and warmth of the Greek people, and make everyone wish they’d never have to leave your wonderful isle.
A stay at Anastasis will ruin you for all future destinations. The beauty of the view exceeds every photo you’ll ever see. The service levels at this fabulous property will exceed every expectation built by the 5 star reviews you read on this site. Despina is undoubtedly the Queen, but she treats her guests as royalty. She arranges for many pleasant surprises in your day, starting with a decadent breakfast beautifully presented on your balcony, to midday refreshments of cold frappe coffee, to cocktails of your choosing, Jacuzzi-side in the evening. There are more surprises, but I don’t want to get in trouble by giving away all of her secrets. Despina has achieved the perfect balance between 5 star service and unintrusive discretion.
While Anastasis is warm and friendly, it is managed very professionally with care and precision. We stayed in one of the two second floor suites, which was spacious and exceedingly comfortable. The size of our balcony was hard to believe, it had abundant space and included a dining table, two chaises, two umbrellas, and a private Jacuzzi. Inside, there was a “stocked” beverage fridge as well as a fully outfitted kitchen area. The bath was large and beautifully appointed. The bed and bedding were top quality. The suite was well worth its price, as there were several days where we hardly could bring ourselves to leave. We enjoyed the pool and its deck as well. The pool in May was still quite chilly but we and several guests enjoyed a swim every afternoon. The property is kept CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN. The men on staff are continuously wiping down chaises, swabbing the pool deck, pruning the gardens, and attending to any of the guests’ requests in an instant.
But, it is the DANCING with Irini that we miss most. Please dance with her in our absence.
