Lithies is a really nice to place to stay on Santorini. They pick you up on arrival at the port, and have someone to take your luggage down the 80 or so steps to your room. The on site manager Maria is just a fabulous person, really helpful and hard working. On arrival there are chocolates and a bottle of wine waiting for you. The rooms are very interesting, I think there are 4 separate apartments built into the caves. There is a common area where there are lounge chairs, tables, umbrellas, a small plunge pool, all with a great sunset view of the caldera. The apartments are clean and comfortable, with modern bathrooms and a small kitchen. Compared to similar properties on the cliff with caldera view I believe Lithies offers great value. The rooms stay cool because they are built into the cliff. There is a small church next door and on the Saturday we stayed there was a traditional Greek wedding, complete with all the bells and whistles. Lithies is down the steps from the main square in Firostefani which has a number of very good restaurants all within a 5 minute walk of the room. Maria really does a great job making you feel welcome, and is one of the main reasons I loved staying here. I would give Lithies my highest recommendation.
