My husband, 15 year old daughter and I have just returned from a wonderful week at the Paradise Hotel.
Before arriving, we were concerned that it wouldn't live up to our expectations from the photos we had seen and the reviews. However, there was only one very small disappointment and that was that the towels were rather worn. Everything else was brilliant; the staff were very welcoming, the rooms were simple but very clean, the sheets were changed daily and the pool and the general setting of the hotel was beautiful.
Akrotiri itself is a quiet village but there are four tavernas to choose from and a well stocked shop - all just across the road from the hotel. The archaeological site must be visited but we would advise booking a guide to get the most from the site; it is difficult to understand it all by just wandering around yourselves We also hired a car from the village for three days and this was a great way to see more of the island than can be done by bus. We would also recommend a boat trip to the volcano island and hot springs.
Santorini itself is absolutely beautiful and trips to Fira and Oia are a must.More
