We are taking the ferry from Crete

Have looked at pezoules in oia and the new hotel angels and stars in imerovigli

Both look amazing but finding it difficult to decide where to stay

Would appreciate any recommendations please

Thanks in advance

Imerovigli is the quietest clifftop village with the best overall sunset/caldera views but there are very few shops and restaurants there. Oia is the most beautiful village with lots of shops, galleries, restaurants and cafes. It's also very popular with the cruise ship excursion companies as well as sunset watchers so there will be lots of people coming and going.

I've heard of them but don't know them. Angels and Stars has only 1 review under the new management and has been refurbished.

Pezoules has many positive reviews here on TA.

I don't know either hotel.

It might depend on what your plans are whilst you're on Santorini.

If you just want to relax and enjoy your hotel, then Imerovigli may be the choice as its more isolated. A hire car would be an asset here - especially if your chosen hotel is more remote.

However, if you want to explore the island a little, then Oia would make it more straightforward. Although, if relying on public transport and you want to view the southern part of Santorini, you'll need to change buses in Fira as its the transportation hub.

We stayed in Pezoules in May this year. It was amazing. The owners/staff were fantastic, rooms were tastefully decorated with high quality furniture, good breakfast and beautiful, totally unobstructed view of the Caldera. The only thing which might be a negative is that you need to climb down about 100 steps to reach the entrance of the hotel. It was not a problem for us as we took it as our daily exercise.
