You couldn't find a more welcoming, friendly, efficient and caring group of young women than Aggie, Demitra and Johanna, who run this small and friendly hotel. The room we had, on the 3rd floor, overlooked the pool and had views of the sea about half a mile distant. We could also look out at the mountain where Ancient Thera lies in ruins. The large double bed was comfortable and the room was always kept spotless for us.
The pool is a good size and surrounded on 3 sides with double sunbeds with pillows; comfortable and romantic as well as practical. The position gives you a choice of temporary shade or permanent sunshine.
The pool bar provided drinks and lunch snacks in variety. I enjoyed everything on offer. Their fresh fruit salad was a favourite with my wife. Demitra makes a wonderful barmaid and always wears a happy smile: a real pleasure to deal with.
Breakfast is an international buffet style with cooked eggs and bacon/sausages, bread, cereal, fruits, cold meat and cheese, fruit juice, coffee, tea and chocolate. And you can eat either inside or on the balcony.
The hotel is located a short walk from the centre of the resort, so you have access to many tavernas and shops without the attendant noise and bustle of a more central location. And, for those who love the beach, you have access to free sunbeds and umbrellas via the sister hotel on the beachfront.
The resort has a lot going for it and you can indulge in a visit to the outdoor cinema (English voices with Greek subtitles), take a walk (or a minibus) up to the site of Ancient Thera, book seats for sunset trips and visits to the volcano, indulge in a full body massage up at the Spa of the Gods, visit Akrotiri, the site of the original Atlantis. And, talking of Atlantis, if you go to Oia, do look out of the Atlantis bookshop. Well worth a visit.
We spent our Silver Wedding at the hotel and were given wine in our room for the occasion. A thoroughly enjoyable, relaxing and stimulating two weeks. Highly recommended.
