Santorini was our third stop after Mykonos and Paros. Spiros, the hotel manager, was kind enough to offer my friends and I complimentary pick up and drop off at the port which we were very grateful for as the hotel's location is not exactly (though this was not a problem at all). Spiros suggested a car rental for our 4 days stay in Santorini and he set us up with a car rental company near our hotel. At first, we were a bit apprehensive about driving around in Santorini but it ended up being really safe, fun and very convenient. It is also very easy to get around Santorini. This way, we were able to visit 4 beaches, go to Fira at night for supper and nightlife (10-15 min. drive from Apanemo) and on our last day, visit Oia which is on the complete opposite end of the island from Akrotiri and it's only about a half hour drive (well worth the visit to watch the sunset and it's a nice drive down). Spiros also gave very good restaurant recommendations!
The room was spacious and very clean with 2 double beds (one on an upper floor) and a very nice, modern bathroom. Breakfast in the morning was satisfying. There was free wifi, though it didn't work in the room but on the balcony and in the lobby, it did work. The hotel pool was just indescribable. The view is breathtaking! It's like we were looking at the brochure of the hotel... looked exactly as in pictures and even better! We had booked until June 4th but our ferry was leaving on June 5th at 12:40 am so we were a bit worried about how it would work after check-out on the 4th but Spiros told us we could stay in the room until we had to leave to get our ferry without charge! We were able to stay almost 12 hours after the scheduled check-out time. He then accompanied us to the port. We were very grateful and our experience with the management at Apanemo was simply amazing.
Definitely worth the value! Many have recommended this hotel for couples but we were 4 girls around the age of 20-21 and it was perfect! I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
