Every bit as good second time around.
My wife and I stated at Afroessa in sept 08 but I forgot to put a review on Trip Advisor, so I suppose this review has the benefit of a second stay.
Location - at the edge of the village of imerovigli - so peace - perfect peace with the only traffic noise from the cruise ships 300 ft below in the caldera. Views are to die for.
We were in room 10 just above the swimming pool - perfect location and very peaceful. At 140€ per night however I felt it was a little small with no chairs in the room but only on the balcony.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. Booking was easy via the Internet and owner Ioana always took an interest in how your stay was going.
Some good restaurants were just a 5 minute walk away (la maison and Bella Thira two that i would recomend. ) Thira is a half hour walk, 5 minute taxi ride (5€) away if you want some greater choice.
So overall excellent well located hotel with views to die for. I'll postcsome pictures when I get home .
