Just returned from a lovely week at the Veggera in Perissa and we were more than pleased with our choice. Perissa is a great resort, just the right number of bars and restaurants along the beach front without seeming too overly touristy, although I don't know what it would be like in the high season.
The hotel itself is right there on the main 'strip', you can walk over the road to the beach in a few seconds. This is its main advantage. Walking around the hotel, past the pools and to the room is lovely as there are beautiful flowers and plants all around and the pool areas are very pleasant. We did not actually sit around the pool as the beach was so close, but there seemed to be plenty of beds but no shades which was a bit of a problem in such hot weather.
We had one of the 'basement' rooms, where you go down a few steps to get to the room, it still had a balcony type area with a table and chairs but obviously there was no view as it was below ground level. The room itself was fine, pretty basic but just what you need if you're not spending much time there. The bathroom doesn't look very good on first sight as there is no shower curtain or cubicle, just the attachment in the corner, but actually the shower was really powerful and always hot. My only problem with the room was that it had 2 single beds pushed together, but not quite together so there was a gap in between, and the mattress was so hard that it was terribly uncomfortable. I know that this was room was on the cheapest rate and I have seen pictures of other rooms with proper double beds.
The breakfast at the neighbouring Pergola restaurant was fine, nothing amazing but something for everyone. We really liked the bar at the hotel, it has lovely little sofa seats facing out to the sea.
The staff were very helpful and explained to us about the trips etc. We went to Oia by ourselves, getting the bus rather than an organised trip. If you walk down to the Main Street then there are lots of travel shops which have a range of trips, probably a bit cheaper and wider range than the ones on offer in the hotel.
All in all I can really recommend the Veggera and certainly Perissa, as a place for a fantastic Greek holiday.
