My husband and I were married at Aigialos in June 2013. Our wedding planner was Shirley Chiarolanzio (excellent!). Working with Shirley, my husband and I looked at many options for a small wedding on Santorini. We decided on Aigialos for several reasons and were not disappointed: We wanted a sunset and caldera view for the ceremony; we wanted to be within easy walking distance to the main tourist area in Fira without being right in it; we wanted to keep the steps to a minimum for our older parents (there are steps to the hotel, but compared to other locations, they weren't very steep, and the hotel staff help with the luggage without making you feel like they're doing you a huge, unprecedented favor). Lastly, we wanted all of this without breaking the bank. All 4 of these requirements were more than met at Aigialos. We stayed in Livas and Skiron B. We were married on the balcony of Skiron B, and it was the perfect location. We even had our small wedding dinner right at the hotel, and the food was AMAZING. Vivi and the entire staff are so kind and helpful. We even noticed Vivi watching our wedding from a higher balcony. It made us feel like she really cared about our day. We recommend this hotel with no hesitation. For the money, the location cannot be beat.
