My partner and I spent 6 nights here and were disappointed with our stay. Although breakfast is included, it consisted of the same thing each morning so after day 4 we ventured out for our own breakfast. The location is about a 10/15 min walk from the main street and the roads are not lit at night so you have to be careful. Also our balcony overlooked the road on the corner so passing traffic was a nuisance. But the wind was so strong on the balcony that we didn't spend much time on there anyway.
The manager collected and dropped us at the airport and recommended a nearby place for food which is owned by his brother and mum. It does great souvlaki's!
We wanted to hire a quad bike and George drove my partner up to town to a shop. We assumed most shops would offer roughly the same rates but we only paid for a day's hire before comparing prices with other shops only to find rates were a lot cheaper elsewhere. So my advice is to not let George recommend a bike hire shop as he will take you to his friend's shop which is pricier than others.
If I was to return to Santorini, I would stay in Imergovli as this is closer to the main part and much prettier.
If you are on a lower budget and looking for a place slightly out of the way, then Sky of Thira is fine.
