This was our first visit to Greece and the Aegean. We stayed at Aigialos for 4 nights and wish we had stayed longer. Everyone at Aigialos did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable and memorable. I can't imagine any view on all of Santorini that could be better than that experienced from the terrace adjacent to room Sorokos. Additionally, the restaurant and service were first-rate. Hopefully, the very professional and personable Nikos will be available to serve your dinner. As for staying in Oia, as recommended in so many guidebooks, maybe it's just me but I didn't much like the place: a little too "precious" for my taste. Fira was "real" and perfect in spite of the crowds from cruise ships; and it provided the best location for day trips in any direction. Thanks Vivi Tsota and staff for all your hospitality!
