This hotel is amazing, the view is breathtaking, though anything on the island looking out to the volcano is just awesome. We had our own plunge pool and amazing deck with 180degree views of the caldera, we were stoked when we got there to see that the room was everything it was advertised to be and more. Location wise watch out if you're not up for walking too much, its about a 20min brisk walk down to Thira which after a few times gets kinda tiresome, though you can hire a small car or quad bike for about 20euro per day which I highly recommend.
The room is well appointed, quiet spacious and the cave roof is to die for, though watch out if your are anything over 170cm, the roof is quiet low particularly up in the bedroom due to the arch of the ceiling. The kitchenette and bathroom were clean and tidy though there is no exhaust fan in the bathroom and the shower head shots onto the floor which isn't too bad however due to the fact that the room is cut directly into the rock the room holds moisture quiet badly, so I recommend unpacking your bags completely and leaving the door open as much as possible to keep air flow though the room.
The breakfast supplied daily was really nice and tasty, good variety though we didnt appreciate being woken each morning to eat when the staff decided it was time to eat. They keep banging on your door until you get up which is fine on a normal day but the morning after we got engaged and drank the night away until 5am the last thing we wanted to do was get up for brekky at 9am.
The other thing to watch out for is room #4 where we were, the staff storage room is right next door so as of first thing in the morning you get to listen to all the staff speaking (quiet loudly too) and calling to eachother. Again not a biggy for me as I'm a pretty heavy sleeper but it was really annoying for my partner.
Overall experience was really great at the hotel, the staff are super friendly and attentive and everything is neat, clean and tidy, no nasty surprises. I spent hours trying to find an affordable and yet still luxurious room for us and I was really happy with my choice to stay at Alexander Villas, great value for money in my eye's.
If we ever go back to Santorini (which we definitely want to) we will be booking there again.
