We booked this through Voyage Prive at an incredible price for such high quality accommodation. I prefer the smaller boutique hotels to the large chains and so this really suited me. Valentino is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast served on your private balcony is delicious. I noticed that some people moan about the pools being cold - never been an issue for us - very refreshing as it was so hot and once you get in you soon get used to it. Many couples seem to use this as a retreat for a relaxing holiday by the pool. We prefer to explore and it is such a lovely island we can highly recommend walking to the Pyrgos roundabout and heading out on a local bus - the conductors are mostly grumpy and unhelpful but all part of the experience! It is a steep hill out of the hotel so wouldn't recommend it for the unfit unless you hire a car. You can take a 10 or 15 min walk from the hotel to the Santorini wine place - highly recommended - especially at sunset as the views are stunning. Wine is very good - the first time we went we shared the 6 glass wine tasting with cheese for 11 Euros. The second time we went we asked for a glass of the reserved white, which is not included in the wine selection but we can highly recommend. Also very good value at 3 or 4 euros per glass. The only small point to mention is that if you do want to stay on your balcony and sunbathe then you may want to check which room you have as our upstairs room was in the shade most of the day. The communal area was very quiet when we were there and has plenty of sunshine though. A great place to stay - highly recommended.
