My husband & I travelled here in late May early June 2011 with our 2 children age 2 and 12. We were very worried after reading other tripadvisor reviews that it would be very honeymoon like and that we would feel uncomfortable with the little one, however we had nothing to worry about. The hotel itself was stunning. Small with friendly staff & beautiful trailing flowers from balconys. At night they lit hundreds of big candles & lanterns & dotted them all over the property which made it very beautiful & romantic. Our room was comfortable & spacious with a balcony and private roof terrace with hot tub. Maid service was excellent with clean towels etc minimum daily sometimes twice daily. There were lots of little children our ones age of 2, and they all played together in the baby pool which was next to the main pool while the adults lounged in the sun chatting. The hotel also had a small playroom we only discovered on the second last day! There were only 3 high chairs but the other guests and us were all super good at waiting & rotating!! The breakfasts were amazing you could live on them all day. The hotel was ideally suited right near the main restaurants. Couldnt fault it. Just down the road form the hotel is a hidden gem, a restaurant by the name of Mamma Mia's It looks a bit like a tacky cafe from outside!!!! But when its lit up at night it is actually really pretty. Some friends told us to try it as its apparently the place to eat if you like fresh fish. The owner will basically make you anything to eat, haggle the price & throw in free wine & kids drinks. Its a 1/4 of the price of anything on the main strip and fabulous especially the catch of the day. The local bus service is easy to use for visiting the capital etc. If i had to pick a negative i would advise people not to drink at the hotel bar. Its enchanting, especially at night but the drinks and ice creams etc are more per glass than you pay for a half carafe on the front. There were lots of weddings on while we were there which my daughter who is 12 found enchanting! It wasnt noisy & didnt detract from anything as everyone was really nice, Santorini doesnt attract the kind of british tourists some other greek islands get bad press for!!! A first class holiday at a first class hotel.
