Stayed here for 5 nights whilst in Santorini for a friends wedding, would have happily stayed another 5 nights!
Firstly, there are a few bad comments about staff, these I dog understand... every member of staff we dealt with was polite, helpful & friendly. Including the reception staff, bar staff and house keeping staff.
The location of the hotel is a good, a 10-15 walk into the hub of Fira town centre & main square, all on flat road. You only have to step outside the hotel entrance to get a great view of the caldera & sunsets. I would recommend hiring a quad it's great way to get around the island and can be hired easily from
20 euros for 24hrs but deals can be made for multiple days use and hire places are dotted about everywhere.
On the subject of wifi, the hotel DOES have free wifi but only in the lobby area (it's the "dlink" wifi) to use wifi throughout and on rooms you have to purchase a code to use "wifiplus" which is 5 euros for 90 minutes use on a log on log off basis.
We had a standard room by the main pool which was spacious and comfortable with a nice bathroom and modern decor. There was a tv, fridge, safe and hairdryer in our room. Rooms were cleaned and changed every day.
The pools make this hotel what it is! There are 2 large pool areas and 2 smaller pools. Also 2 jacuzzis and 1 kids pool. There is a pool bar which serves a selection of drinks and lunch snacks, all priced about the same as anywhere else on the island. There is also a main restaurant where breakfast & dinner is served. Breakfast was nice with good selection of hot & cold, it did get a bit manic, but you can't blame the hotel for that.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay and will look to stay here again if we return to santorini.
They do seem to be quite strict on check in time of 1pm so if you have an early arrival arrange early check in or expect to wait.
