The Aressana Hotel is the place to stay in Santorini. It's family owned and run by the nicest people who look after their guests and help them in every way to make their trip to that spectacular island the greatest pleasure. We have been to Santorini many times and always look forward to our stay at the Aressana. The Cycladic architecture of the many buildings that make up the hotel is a constant feast for the eyes. And the spa and pool wipe away all cares. On our most recent stay we were in a garden area where we had our own patio which was shielded from the intense noontime sun. We still had a good wi-fi connection to the Garden 2 network in our bungalow-type room which was not near the main reception area.
Maria, at the reception desk, and Anna, the hostess who will greet you upon arrival, always advised us where to go and where to eat and how to get where we wanted to go.
There are many places on Santorini to eat and enjoy the sunset, but do try a meal in the hotel dining room too. What's so great about the hotel dining facilities is their offering of real Greek food and local delicacies. Breakfast is a buffet filled with Greek "French" toast, great breads and fruits and juices, and, on Sunday, loukoumades (Greek doughnuts that are to die for).
The Aressana enjoys an excellent location. It is in Fira, the main town of the island, at the start of the knock-out road on the edge of the cliff looking out to the sea. There are shops and dining spots galore on this road. Across the street is the Greek Orthodox basilica and the Museum of Prehistory. One block down the hill is the bus depot to catch a bus to Akrotiri or to Oia.
