We stayed at Tholos over the summer for 7 nights and had a wonderful vacation in Santorini . Santorini itself was an unforgettable experience and some of the most fantastic scenery imaginable. Tholos is ideally positioned for the best sunsets on the island and location wise it's a 5 minute walk to a small supermarket, 10 minutes walk to the bus stop and 10 minutes walk to a couple of superb tavernas. Spyros and all the staff were excellent - friendly, full of helpful tips and advice and always incredibly polite. I cannot fault them and their first class customer service. However Tholos is not a 4 star resort and at best a 3 star. The rooms are dated, tired and massively in need of a face lift. When we arrived we were upgraded from the room we'd booked (standard studio) and shown to a room in the resort next door. This room was unbelievable - virtually new, jacuzzi on the balcony and a completely unrestricted view of the caldera. We were told we'd likely be here for the week but after day 2 we moved rooms to Tholos. We were upgraded to the best room they have which is an old house dug into the cliff and big enough for 6 people with a jacuzzi on the balcony. A massive suite, traditional furniture etc... but very old fashioned and in need of modernising. They'd obviously over booked (I think this happens a fair bit) but in all fairness we'd paid for a lesser room and been allocated the best one they had at no extra cost. Breakfast each morning on the balcony was enjoyable in terms of the view but the food was average - luke warm scrambled eggs, stale muffins and the food isn't covered. When we checked out Spyros took a photo of us and asked us to write in their guest book. It was clear not writing something wasn't an option and I felt this was a little sneaky and a way of covering his back should someone post a bad review of the resort online. Overall the hospitality was excellent, Spyros and his team are good hosts but the accommodation and rooms are old, tired and in desperate need of modernising.
