Aura Marina apartments are situated in Akrotiri in the southeastern part of Santorini. We are located near the archaeological site of Akrotiri, the famous Red Beach and the old lighthouse, where one may admire panoramic views of the volcanic caldera and the sunset. All the apartments have terraces with private dip pools and balconies where you may relax and admire the magnificent caldera views. Furnishings and decoration respect the traditionally minimal spirit of the island but also pay extra attention to comfort. Every apartment has air conditioning, TV, DVD player, fully equipped kitchenette.

The apartments are located in a very quiet area. The area is located so you can reach white, red and black beach very easily. Our flat had three floors and the kitchen had one electric hob, one sandwich grill and one kettle so cooking is not really possible apart from pasta and pesto. House was clean and well kept and towels were shifted twice during a week. Plenty of hot water for the shower. Pool was more of a hot tub size, the other apartments had bigger pools. On the top floor you could not stand straight but it had a nice small balcony from here you could enjoy the sunset with a nice breeze. Slightly overpriced. Nice very service minded and helpful staff.

The place is spacious, nicely designed, clean and bright. the pool is bigger in person compared to the pictures. it is a more relaxed environment in akrotiri and is easy to find if you are driving. Good place to stay a few night if you want to explore the southern part for a couple of days. Dimitri is also a very nice host, quite friendly. Only thing to note is that the stairs are not so safe for small kids because of the huge space below the handle. So if u have small children, take note. For us, it is not a problem. Thankfully my kids are well behaved.

I have spent several holidays in Santorini, but nothing can be compared to Aura Marina, this is why I have decided to come back for my second time! The apartments are simply amazing, and the caldera view is speechless: having a bath in the private pool is WORTHLESS! The staff is very polite. Very clean.

Thank you for you preference and review! We hope the plunge pool was priceless and not worthless and that you will visit us again in a future occasion!

We stayed at Aura Marina for 3 nights. The apartment met all our expectations. It was clean, had all the basics that we needed in terms of cooking, comfy beds, place to lounge and the splash pool was perfect for cooling off after the beach. Dimitri at reception was really friendly and helpful. We’d definitely recommend this accommodation. Also, if you are thinking of hiring a car...do!

We've just returned from 10 nights at Aura Marina, staying in the 'Meltemi' apartment. This was our first visit to Santorini and, when reading all the reviews, Oia, in particular, but also Thera appeared to receive the most mention, the former especially for the sunsets. These locations may be fine if you are happy with crowds, don't plan to hire a car and want, therefore, to have an abundance of restaurants on your doorstep. In the end, though, we elected to stay to the south of the island in Akrotiri and are so glad that we made this decision. We visited Oia for a short trip and, while we can say we have done it, there is no way that we would have wanted to stay there given the constant recycling of tour coaches and the resultant throngs of people. By contrast, Akrotiri, is calm and peaceful, doesn't attract the crowds and, if you want the sunsets, there are restaurants towards the lighthouse at the southernmost tip of the island where you have uninterrupted views without the need to jostle for prime spot. Aura Marina was simply excellent. The views across the Caldera are superb and everyone who visited us during our stay - we were on the island with 90 others for our daughter's wedding - commented on the same. Dimitri couldn't have been more helpful both before and during our stay. Although we didn't opt for the daily cleaning service, the apartment was cleaned mid-way through our stay and clean towels were provided every 3rd or 4th day. A car is most definitely needed, though, since the nearest restaurant (that we found, anyway) is about 1km distance, added to which there is no street lighting, so returning on foot in the dark after a hearty meal and, doubtless, a glass or two of wine would constitute quite a challenge! There is a Mini-Mart around 100 metres away but the range is extremely limited. We were unable to find sufficient to construct a meal on the evening of our arrival and so settled for Water, Beer and Fresh Eggs from this shop and then drove to another at the junction of the last right turn as you head towards the apartments. As another reviewer has commented, the layout of the apartments may not suit everyone with small children but, then, we visited others during our stay where the same could equally be said. We were aware of the presence of infants during the course of our stay but don't believe that the parents experienced any difficulties. Suffice to say, though, that it is not somewhere where children should be left unattended! All in all, we were sorry to leave and would happily return to Aura Marina if the opportunity arises to visit Santorini again.
