This hotel/hostel was amazing for the price, we paid around 9 euros a night for a huge room which came with a balcony overlooking the pool, a big fridge, cutlery, table and chairs, an extra bed, air con, safe and a decent bathroom... the best part? this was all a 10 second walk away from the beach. Not to mention the seriously friendly staff who picked us up/dropped us off at the airport, helped arrange a hire car for us very last minute, gave us a map and highlighted all the important places and good things to see, and were just generally helpful throughout our whole stay.
The facilities within the hotel in general were pretty good, they had three computers with internet, a bar right by the fantastic pool, which served mixed drinks as well as beer, water, soft drinks ect, a huge left luggage facility, countless movies to rent (free of charge) as well as organised Island tours to places like the volcano and the hot springs.
The location is fantastic for other reasons besides the beach being literally outside the front door, there are loads of good restaurants and bars within walking distance (I recommend Acropolis for food, their mixed grill was insanely good and Yazz Beach Bar for drinks, great staff and good drinks). It's seriously close to the bus stops going to towards Fira and Oia, which are around 45 minutes away, and various minimarts/bakeries.
I've been home less than a week and already I've recommended staying in Perissa (and Anny Studios) to a lot of my friends, the location is great as you're out of the way of the hoards of tourists and high room prices in Fira and Oia, plus the beach is incredible and the sunbeds are free if you order a cocktail or beer from one of the bars.
Looking back at some of the reviews for this place it seems some people have clearly been very short sighted and haven't done their research at all. Surely most hotels have desalinated sea water for showers as there is no source of fresh water in Santorini? No heat in the rooms?! When I was here you needed the aircon on or the balcony doors open most of the time, so why would they bother heating the rooms when it's very unlikely to get cold? It's worth mentioning they provide extra blankets in the room so even if this was a problem I'm sure a quick trip down to reception would sort this out.
To sum up, this hotel was fantastic, everything from the location to the staff was perfect and I will most definitely be coming back.
