Very helpful and friendly people! Accomodations are older, but clean and ok for the price. Pool area, restaurant and garden add charm to hotel!

Hotel Perissa is a family run hotel which is slightly off the beaten track in Perissa and the sense of family runs right through this hotel starting with the children who help in the kitchen right over to the grandparents who make breakfast and help maintain the hotel.

On my arrival in Santorini at the ferry port I had been given a telephone number to call for a free pickup which was included in the price of my stay. In fact when I arrived I didn't even need to phone the number. A representative from the hotel was already there to greet visitors at the port. I was taken to the hotel by minibus and I am also advised that they also pickup guests from the airport. This is a really nice touch.

On arrival at the hotel I was shown to my room which had a large bed, television, fridge and most importantly an air-conditiioning unit. The room was definately not as modern as I expected. It was basic but it felt quite rustic. The room was definately clean and functional.

The bathroom was clean with a tiled floor and the shower was the type where there isn't a shower tray but the water runs to the drain hole in the middle of the floor.

The hotel is laid out in several blocks of rooms and close to these blocks is the hotel bar and pool area. The pool is fairly large and there were plenty of sun loungers. The bar serves drinks, ice-creams, sandwiches and snacks.

I stayed for 5 nights and although I hate to say it, there were a couple of nights where other guests were quite loud in the early hours. I couldn't fault the hotel because it was those particular guests. After those guests left, peace was restored.

The one thing that was sadly lacking in this hotel was its proximity to the beach. I was told it was a 10 minute walk to the beach and the main strip but it turned out to be a 25 minute walk. Not too bad in the evening when the sun is low but difficult when it is hot.

There is a large supermarket within 10 minutes walk and the bus stop which takes you to Fira (the island capital) is 5 minutes walk. On the way to the main strip there are some bars and restaurants which are cheaper than the ones on the front and you could potentially stop at some of these on the way.

In conclusion this hotel is perfect as a central base for anyone who wishes to explore the island because the bus stop is only a few minutes walk away. If you are looking for beach access then you might choose somewhere closer to the beach.

  • Liked — The staff were very friendly and helpful.
  • Disliked — The distance to the beach and the main bars and restaurants might be a problem for some.
