We were cheerfully greeted by a friendly (and handsome!) young man who escorted us through the crowds to AltaMare's lovely reception room~and were handed a refreshing adult beverage while our bags were whisked to our room. We were then guided to our room (not fancy or pretentious, just clean, attractive and spacious) with lovely views of the caldera out the back and off the front patio. We were especially thrilled with our private, personal sized 'dipping' pool where one can soak away the day's arduous activities while gazing upon the quintessential Santorini hillsides and caldera. Breakfast at AltaMare is exceptional~ especially with the warm welcome from Panos....who is helpful, friendly and skilled at managing his guests' every inquiry. The food and coffee were remarkably delicious. We loved the central location of this hotel. Yes, the stairs were narrow, steep and intimidating, but 'welcome to Santorini'! We quickly got used to them and considered them an asset as we didn't gain a single pound during our Greek Isles trip. We would definitely return to AltaMare.
