Hello, we visited Santorini for the second time. We decided to go to Imerovigli, the highest point on the caldera border between Thira and Oia (really strategic spot to move around the island easily in every direction). We decided to catch an offer from Tholos resort for a room for three days in August 2011 for less than 200 euros per night per room. Wow, when you get there you can't believe to the landscape you are viewing...just unique in the world. Stunning. Tholos is in the hearth of Imerovigli, made up by terraces overlooking the sea. I repeat, the view is stunning. There are few rooms and the hotel is family run. Each room with a terrace has a marvellous view. Upper rooms have more privacy, lower rooms have a straight access to the pool. Breakfast is included and served in your private terrace, the best moment in the day for us :) rooms are very clean and very silent. The only point to improve is service: breakfast is served with no attention and sometimes does not carry what has been asked (the waiters will be disappointed to change your breakfast as they have to go up and down from the kitchen, which means climbing hundreds of little steps on the steep mountain where Imerovigli is located). We also tried to have one dinner in the hotel on the beautiful common terrace in fron of the sunset. All the food was previously frozen and then served without are for a high price of almost 50 euros per person, too much. Make sure you enjoy the view but move out for dinner. And remember to buy your wine in a carrefour supermarket (best value for money vs the hotel and small shops) and bring it to your private terrace to enjoy the most beautiful breakfast.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Santorini hotel of your choice in Imerovigli, on the island of Santorini. Much beloved and world-famous, the island of Santorini in Greece is a place of awesome beauty and bewitching atmosphere. Its exceptional character is a blend of blazing volcanic rock, against the backdrop of the deep cobalt-blue sea and the clear Aegean sky. The imposing Caldera is the result of the volcano's biblical eruption, a crescent of cliffs rising steeply hundreds of meters above the water, with white villages nestled upon their tops. One of these picturesque settlements is Imerovigli, a small distance away from the capital of Santorini, Fira, where you can find Tholos Luxury Hotel Resort. Perched on the cliff of the Caldera, the hotel will offer you an accommodation of luxury and hospitality, in a magnificent setting overlooking the volcano. Panoramic vistas to the crater, submerged into the deepest blue waters, sparkling under the bright sunlight, will leave you enchanted in the day, while the spectacular sunsets that turn the landscape into a melange of dreamy pictures will make your memories unforgettable. The whitewashed apartments and studios, all in the traditional Cycladic style, are built on different levels of the cliff, with terraces or balconies facing the superb surroundings. In their discreetly luxurious interiors you'll find comfort and relaxation. At the patio by the outdoor pool on the other hand, you'll enjoy refreshing moments under the sun or romantic time under the stars. The service, day and night, is friendly and impeccable, while the hotel's owners are always at your disposal for your every need while staying here. ... more less
