On our 25th anniversary trip we spent the second week of October in Perivolos at Glykeria Mini Suites. We stayed in the superior double room with panoramic sea view, which was just beautiful and worth the extra money. The price for the room was very reasonable and the room met our expectations. (The cost was a few Euros more than a youth hostel in Germany.) It looks just like the photos on the web site. The location is great, very quiet, just a few steps from a nice beach and there are several good restaurants nearby. The owner, Lefteris, recommended The Nets and we enjoyed two very good meals there. When we arrived, it was a warm afternoon and after we were showed to our room Maria, a worker, brought us cold beers.
Everything was very clean, the bedding was comfortable and sheets and towels were changed after three nights. The room was cleaned every day. We appreciated the fact that the balcony was well lit and we could read out there at night. The room stayed cool and we didn’t use the air conditioning. The wi-fi connection was also very good. We loved having breakfast on the front patio, watching the sea and listening to the waves. Breakfast was typical and plentiful: juice, coffee, bread, butter, jelly, honey, cheese, ham, eggs and delicious Greek joghurt and fruit. It varied a little every day. Unfortunately the coffee was a bit weak and lukewarm and the milk cooled it down very quickly. Some people might be disappointed that there are only Greek TV stations and no hairdryer in the room. Also, there were no toiletries, except soap, but we always bring our own, so that didn’t bother us. We appreciated having the refrigerator, but it would have been nice to also have coffee and tea facilities, especially for early morning sunrises on the balcony, since breakfast isn’t until 9.00 o’clock. I’m not sure why the name “mini-suites” is used, because it really was just a nice sized room and there was no sitting area.
The tourist season on this side of Santorini was quickly winding down, and the owner was packing up all around us. It didn’t really bother us and was actually a cultural phenomenon occurring in many establishments along the beach to Perissa. By the end of our stay there were only two umbrellas and four beach chairs left. We used them several afternoons and weren’t charged and Lefteris also didn’t allow us to pay for the Greek coffee my husband ordered one afternoon.
We would recommend this place to someone seeking a quiet, relaxing atmosphere, simple clean rooms and a great beach location. It is a bit out of the way, which we wanted and we had a car. One day we walked 45 minutes to Vlichada, the small yacht harbor, where we had a great meal.
