If you’re considering Atlantis Beach, I’ll try and give you a balance of the pros and cons.
The first thing to say is that Atlantis Beach is a perfectly decent hotel for a 3-star Greek island property. Staff are lovely without exception, rooms are clean and you can have a perfectly nice holiday here.

There are small nags, and how important they are, depends chiefly on what’s important to you. We’ve had a great holiday here.

ROOMS - We took a studio with a Jacuzzi, and although the Jacuzzi was too cold for the time of year, it was nice to have the extra outside space and kitchenette (I heard people complain about their rooms being too small. This one was fine). The room’s enclosed outside area has space for two deckchairs and a breakfast table. It is not private (it’s visible from the balconies above), but we liked it. One apparent quirk of the rooms here is that they don’t have a shower bracket, so you have to hold the shower-head in your hand as you shower – this is not a huge issue, but should be simple to fix (Atlantis Beach – if you’re reading this, several reviews mention the missing shower brackets).

The room was cleaned to a high standard every day, no complaints there.

TV – if that’s important to you, there’s a small TV with about nine channels, of which five were in English (all news: BBC news, CCTV, Bloomberg, RT and Euronews). There are two Italian channels, one French and one German. TV Reception was erratic. We weren’t that fussed about the telly, so didn’t really mind.

WIFI – is only available around the pool and bar area. Some of the rooms above the pool will likely have reception too, but overall, you are not likely to have wifi in your room. Near the pool, I measured 4.5mbps download and less than 0.25mbps upload. On several occasions speeds halted to dialup standard (with hardly any upload bandwidth). If you want Facetime, you might want to try somewhere else, for normal Facebook/news and email, Atlantis Beach was mostly fine with the occasional go-slow or no-go.

SMOKE ALARMS – we didn’t have one in our room. Not sure what the standard is in Greece, but since most of the guests in this hotel booked a package through Thomson/TUI, I was surprised about this, especially as some of the rooms have cooking facilities. Maybe that’s just how it is here?

WATER: you should not drink the tap water here (or anywhere on the island). Get bottled. Hot water takes a while to arrive outside of busy shower hours. There was one morning with no hot water.

COOKING FACILITIES: in the rooms that have them (only the studios, I think) you get a pot, a pan, some cutlery, a small coffee press, an ice tray and a few dishes. There’s a fridge, a hob with two rings, a sink and a kettle. What you will need to get for any basic cooking is at least a decent chopping knife, a spatula, washing up stuff, kitchen roll and all the food/spices/oils/etc. The kitchenette is small though. If your aspirations do not exceed pasta or omelette by much, you should be ok. There are a couple of (mini) supermarkets within walking distance.

BREAKFAST was reasonable, though did not set our world on fire. Can’t say anything bad (or good) about it. It was the same every day. The accompanying coffee is best avoided.

START OF THE SEASON (first two weeks of May)
We were the first group of the season, and when we arrived not everything was quite ready. Wifi took a couple of days to sort out. The beach in front of the hotel was not yet ready, and during the day there was still some building work going on onsite (hammers, drills, saws etc.). Overall this did not spoil our holiday, but if you are worried about this sort of thing, it might be best to wait until the second half of May.

BUS TO FIRA
The bus to the lovely island capital is cheap (€2.30 in 2016), convenient and frequent (about hourly in May). Ask the hotel where to catch it, then when you arrive at Fira, check the timetable at the bus stop for return times. You don’t need to buy a ticket before you travel, nor do you pay the driver. Simply board the bus, sit down and the conductor will collect the fee and give you a ticket and change. Fira is well worth the trip with amazing views of the caldera and an international vibe. The bus also takes you through a large part of the island (that’s sometimes covered by tours), so you could hop off part-way, explore, then continue your journey on the next bus. We hear it gets a bit busy and takes longer during high season.

TOURS AND RENTAL CAR
Most guests at this hotel book a package holiday, so you have the benefit of a rep and a transfer, etc. BUT, two things to watch out for:

Tours: if you buy your tour through your holiday provider, you’ll pay about double (or more) for the same tour compared to booking it direct at one of the tour offices in Perissa (try one of the booths on the main street, rather than the seafront). The other advantage of booking direct is that most tours can be booked for most days, rather than the set day/slots that the tour operator has.

Hire car: Again, if you book locally, you’ll get significant value for money (we saw the same car at about half the price of the one offered via TUI, even if you consider CDW etc.).

We stayed here last last year and was one of favourite holidays so far! The staff go above and beyond to make your stay pleasant & cannot fault the pool and the beach a few steps away. Whilst we were there, there were several power outages but that's not at fault of the hotel, they happen regularly along the entire strip & don't last long, but just a heads up! Be sure to visit Oia and Fira whilst your there (the classic santorini photos), there is a frequent bus service and would highly recommend the Thomson Sunset Cruise, if travelling with Thomson. Recommend this hotel to anyone, don't hesitate in booking!

This is such a lovely place to stay. Right on the beach front and restaurants and bars are both not far walk away. Rooms are basic but very clean. Pool area and bar are really nice and the staff are so friendly and always there if you need anything. Couldn't fault anything. Stayed here at the start of the holiday season so not very busy.

We spent two weeks here late August 2015 and had an amazing holiday. The apartments are traditional in design with good sized balconies. They are kept spotlessly clean with clean towels nearly every day & regular sheet changes. There is a gorgeous pool area with ample sunbeads. It is a relaxing area with no loud music. The pool bar serves excellent food & drinks at reasonable prices and has the most friendly staff ever. The wonderful Dina who never seems to stop working along with Andre & Mario. The black sand beach is just across the road with free sunbeds for hotel guests. Food & drinks are brought to you on the beach nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast was very acceptable we particularly enjoyed the eggs with feta & peppers. Kristina on reception was also excellent always very helpful with a cheery smile. The restaurants & bars are just a short walk along the beach road in either direction. During the 2 week stay we tried quite a few & never had a bad meal and all were excellent value for money. Would we go again. Oh yes we have already booked for September 2016.

Great property, good rooms and open space outside the room. Good pool. Will highly recommend the spa treatments- tried facial, massage body scrub, it was all excellent. Breakfast is avg but good bar n restaurant. Beach front is a bit rocky.
