My wife and I chose Anastasis Apartments as a honeymoon destination largely on the basis of previous good reviews on TripAdvisor, which promised a beautiful, peaceful haven with top quality service - we weren't disappointed.
We were met at the airport by a large car, which whisked us to the front door where we were met by Despina and some of her staff. All of the staff were very friendly and welcoming - they stayed in the background throughout the holiday but were nearby waiting in case you needed anything. Their attention to small details was fantastic - whenever we arrived back hot and dusty from a walk, someone would intercept us with a glass of cold water before we'd even got back to our room! The team smiled patiently through our attempts to practise our beginners' Greek on them - and they definitely helped to make the holiday for us.
They provided lots of useful information about the local area - including booking us into restaurants. We tried the local taverna (Tasos - 5 minutes walk, very friendly, with hearty local food) and also splashed out one evening on a meal at Vanilia (in Firostefani, with stunning sunset views over the caldera).
The apartments were very peaceful, and beautiful designed to offer plenty of storage space while keeping a simple, clean feel. The views across the caldera were, of course, stunning!
We had the optional breakfast every morning, which we would recommend, as there was always plenty - eggs, breads, fruit, yoghurt, juice - to set us up for the day. There were plenty of facilities in each apartment to make simple meals for ourselves - although we were lazy and tended to eat out every day!
Our rooms (the White Suite) came with a jacuzzi which was absolutely fabulous for relaxing in while watching the sun set over Oia - some of the other apartments didn't have their own jacuzzi, but for people in those apartments there was another jacuzzi set apart at the side of the grounds which could be booked for an evening.
The apartments were quite pricey compared to our usual holidays, but we really felt that we had value for money, as we came away with memories of a really indulgent stay - and an immediate plan to start saving up so that we could go back!
