Hello! First of all, i have to let you know that we decided to stay at this hotel by using Christian Tour (Romania, Bucharest) agency services, from 24 June 2014 until 1 July 2014. As we arrived at the airport, our guide told us that there was a problem with our reservation and we had to stay in Oia for one night, at Andronis Luxury Suites. We were a little upset about the inconvenience, but it turned out that we had a great stay at Andronis aswell - but that was another story, i will probably write a review on that aswell.
Because we had another problem with the transfer company, the hotel manager offered us a complimantary spa treatment - which was great.. so, as we arrived at the hotel we were treated really nice by the manager, she is great!
The hotel offers a wonderful view upon the Caldera, the Vulcano, the famous sunset, so i would suggest not to run to cach the sunset in Oia or Fira because you can simply enjoy the sunset at your hotel or somewhere around it, along them Caldera. It is absolutely stunning! And the pool area... wow.. we made some great pictures there! Sorry i cannot upload them now..
The services... very good! As i told you, the manager is great! The staff aswell.. realy polite and useful.
The food... you are able to choose your breakfast because you receive every day a list with foods and you are supposed to tick everything you want to have next day in the morning (you settle the hour aswell, so i suggest to complete your list and drop it at the reception in order to set your convenient time - only one time slot is available for each room, so you better hurry). You can choose: eggs, omelet, cheese, salmon, porridge, jam, honey, toast and so on... the serving is really good. Never had a more relaxing breakfast!
We also had dinner in the "Cave" restaurant.. everything was perfect! i think that every little thing in there is fresh and perfectly cooked! the choclolate souffle just made my day!
Rooms... if i remember well, we had room no. 6, right by the pool... it was nice, clean, we had wine and fresh fruits in the room (fruits refill each time). The only issue was that the toilet was in the opposite part of the room from the shower... and the shower does not have an actual door, so when i woke uo in the morning to take a shower i also woke my boyfriend because i was making noise... (from toilet to shower.. the sound of the water...etc). The design is really nice, it is like an open bath with the sink in the middle of the room, but not that practical for us because we are not waking up in the same time.
Wifi: worked well, free access; as i was entered the room my phone went all crazy (connected to internet right away and received tons of notifications :)) )
Pool area.. unforgettable because of the view! Quick tip:make sure that you choose your sunbeds early in the morning if you plan to stay at the hotel, because they are not allocated on rooms.. so you can pick your perfect spot depending on the sun. The hotel is quite small, not so many rooms...so you can easily get what you want. We didn't spend so much time in the pool area during the day, so it wasn't a problem for us.
Overall, really nice! i would definetly choose this hotel again! Nothing to complain about!
I wish you all a great vacation and a wonderful stay at Avaton resort!
