We stayed in Vedema from Aug 11, 2013 till Aug 16, 2013.
As others mentioned it's located in the quiet village of Megalohori. It's just a perfect setting if you would like to spend some quality time with your loved one. Santorini is very touristy in the summer so you will quickly learn to appreciate the tranquillity of Vedema. On the second day of our stay a fire at the power station cut off the electricity to the whole island. I could feel how difficult it was for the staff to handle various complaints and endless demands of the guests but they did great. Everyone was working hard to the best of their ability. We heard that many hotels did not have water as it required an electrical pump so the shower and the toilet were not working. It was not the case in Vedema. We still had water, cold beer and hot coffee. Given the circumstances, the only minor inconvenience was a non-working air-conditioner.
It was not really a problem but we did not like breakfast in Vedema very much which we had on the first morning of our stay. It's not that it was bad but rather inadequate. American breakfast was 35 euro per person. This is the price you pay for a dinner without wine in a good restaurant on Santorini so if you are charging 35 euro for a breakfast it gotta be good. Unfortunately, all I can say is that it was OK. Nothing special. For the breakfast we were going to the bakery located on the main road within 10 minute walk from the hotel.
There are several restaurants 2 minutes by foot from the hotel which serve great food. We especially liked Marmita restaurant.
To be fair, Vedema seems to have nice dining options as well but we did not have a chance to explore them all to full extent. We just had a few drinks in the open-air bar and at the spectacular Vinsanto restaurant and we were quite impressed by the service - very friendly and efficient.
All in all, Vedema is a very nice boutique hotel in traditional Greek style.
