We stayed at the Antinea for 1 week, 19/10/13 to 26/10/13
The hotel its self was lovely, the rooms could do with sprucing up, but it was very clean in all areas.
It was my "big" birthday and my husband requested something "special", for our arrival
We were taken to our room, and they had laid on champagne, fruit, and our room had petals scattered in a heart shape on the bed and Jacuzzi
It was lovely...
BUT my husband wanted a larger room, so he asked for an upgrade, he was offered the "IMPERIAL SUITE" for NOTHING!
That was a beautiful room, large Jacuzzi, draped 4 poster bed, our very own private terrace, The views were stunning. We couldn't ask for more.
The staff were great, VERY pleasant and helpful. The 2 waiters Yannis and Mitkos were so nice and pleasant and would do anything to please, they worked really long days and always had a smile
The ONLY downside of this holiday was the food, as this was the last week of the season, the food was not up to much. The breakfast, albeit it plentiful, it was never hot/warm, the evening meals, not much choice (basic a la carte menu) and not fantastic. BUT it was edible, we didn't go hungry.
But overall I can't fault the hotel in its self. It IS worth staying and would probably stay there again
The hotel is situated beneath a volcanic rock, and there is a steep gradient from the town to get to it, so if your walking, be aware, it dosn't look tiring, but in that heat it kills your calves!
We hired a quad bike for a 4 days, and believe me you can see ALL the island in those few days.
We visited Ancient Thira (the road leading is right outside the hotel) cost 2 euros to enter (unless your a seasoned walker I wouldn't attempt to walk it)
The capital Fira is lovely, but the BEST place is Oia.... out of this world, its so beautiful
The whole experience of Santorini and Antinea Hotel was very memorable, and I definitely couldn't of wished for a nicer more pleasant "birthday holiday"
