“Great place to stay with wonderful staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2013

Stayed for a week in AV. The hotel was everything you need and the staff were very helpful and professional always with a cheery smile. They helped us book the sunset cruise, (much better than the one offered by Thomson) and a hire car from a place 25 meters down the road, (no problems delivering and returning the car)
The design of the hotel is very contemporary and it was all spotlessly clean.
The bar prices were reasonable €5 for a G&T and the breakfast was great, with different hot selection each day.
The only factors that prevented me giving "Excellent" were:
The rooms are small. The double bed is against a wall so one of you will have to crawl out.
The shower room is also small, so if you were a "bigger" person, you might struggle.
There was also some road noise when sitting round the pool. Mopeds, quad bikes and busses are passing and it can detract from the otherwise tranquil setting.

just returned had a great time! Staff work so hard to make sure everything is kept to a high standard nothing out of place.We had an Economy room which was small very clean but adequate for our needs towels changed every day no fail! pool towels changed as & when you needed Breakfast was very quite busy with people but nobody talking strange! Pool very quite & relaxed with prices for food & drinks on par with the main area. Hotel is situated just off the main strip its close to all amenities beach & Taverna's to which i must add that a lot of the sea front restaurants are not owned or run by Greeks!! so ask at hotel if your looking for the real deal for us that was Taverna Sellada. The only problem with the main strip is your hassled by the restaurant as you walk along all after your custom. but a firm no thank-you did seem to do the trick but you find yourselves having to do this as you pass every restaurant. That aside still had a fab time food prices vary from 30-60 euros for two people drinks 4 euros for a large beer 5-7 for a carafe of wine. went to Oia on the local bus great Fun lol stunning sun set but very pricey to eat & drink and very very busy with everybody looking for the best spot to watch the sun go down!
overall very nice visit! great people! good location!& fantastic hotel

Room Tip: its all about what you need from a room! Economy is a basic room clean but compact for us its a bed...

My wife and I were on our honeymoon and we couldn't have planned a better experience. Upon arrival, Elena sat us down and planned out our entire visit by explaining the layout of the island and all the must see places. After that, she helped us rent a car by brining the car rental employee to our doorstep. We visited the pool and outdoor bar and were greeted by Joanna who also recommedned the best restaurant in Imerovigli, Anogi, which we were glad we tried. We then took off to our first excursion based on her recommendation. Upon our return to the hotel, Thanos surprised us with an upgrade to a suite which was beautiful with a balcony overlooking Kamari Beach. The next day, we continued on our recommended excursions. When we returned that day, Elena informed us that we were upgraded to their sister hotel on the Caldera in Imerovigli, Above Blue Suites. All these upgrades were free of charge and I believe it's because they knew we were on our honeymoon. Like I said, we couldn't have planned a better experience. My wife and I recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone visiting Santorini. If you're staying somewhere else, make sure you atleast stop by to meet these amazing individuals. I would return just to see them again. Thank you Elena, Thanks, and Joanna. From Moussa and Verenise.

We stayed at this hotel for a week in July. We were given a welcome drink on arrival and introduced to the very friendly hotel staff. Our room was relatively small, but very nice and clean. We also had a good sized balcony and reasonable sized bathroom. Breakfast is lovely (and served till 11 everyday) and the cook makes a different local dish every day. The hotel is very conveniently located, being a 1 minute walk to the supermarket and about 5 minutes from the beach and beach front road. Would definitely recommend!

When we arrived we were greater Joanna with a complimentary drink given maps of the area and local bus times.
Spent most of the holiday lounging by the pool as that was most relaxing where a good range of drinks and snacks were available.
The only down sides were the small room we were at the back of the hotel onto a car park, the bathroom being so small the water went everywhere as no screen to protect and wifi was Incredibly sloooowww.
Other than that it wouldn't put me off visiting again as the staff were so friendly and atmosphere was extremely relaxing.
