Stayed in Zephyros hotel with my girlfriend for a week. We chose the hotel based on the reviews on this site and we kinda knew where we're going to. Hotel is very good value for the money, with great breakfasts, very clean rooms, friendly staff, and amazing pool area. Owner of the hotel is also owner of the restaurant on the beach (Elixir) where you get free sunbeds with umbrella once you tell them which hotel you're staying at. By walking it takes about 6-7 minutes from the hotel to the Elixir, not that much + there's a super market on the way where you can buy water or anything else that you might need.
In the hotel we got ground floor room which we thought at first it's gonna be a disaster but quickly it turned out that it was one of the best things that could happen. Yes sure, we didn't have a spectacular view, but on the other hand also top floor rooms don't have anything breathtaking I believe, but what we had was the option to jump over the stone fence of our balcony, few running steps and high jump into the pool... :-)
At the departure day we had to leave our rooms till noon, even though the bus which took us to the airport picked us up in front of the hotel only at 21.45. In Zephyros offered us to put our suitcases into the locked room and we could even take a shower in the evening before going to the bus. They provided us with fresh towels and a bathroom, which was great after a whole day at the beach.
We also rented a scooter which you can get for 18-20 EUR/day in high season.
Only bad thing about our stay in Santorini was the fire in power station which caused the whole island go dark. They needed 4 days to fix it and we had electricity only few hours per day, which was terrible. Not because we couldn't watch TV (which we didn't even turn on for the whole week) but because you can't charge your camera, because you can't take a shower, you can't take flush the water in the toilet and because restaurants have very limited options what to prepare for hungry guests without electricity.
Other than that, Zephyros is an excellent hotel for this money and I highly recommend it.
