We stayed at Vedema hotel for four days and we had good time. We stayed at a very big 2bedrooms villa, very white as described, 2 big bathrooms with decent views.
Hotel was in the middle of everywhere and away from the crowd. Its 15 minutes away from airport "hotel provided free shuttle from/to it", 7 minutes away from "perissa beach/area" where a nice clean quiet beach and great cozy restaurants, 10 minutes from "thira city Center" and 30 minutes to "Oia area" where the best sunset seen can be found and great views.
The receptionists were welcoming but we had to ask so many questions in order to get the right advises to what we could do at the area. As for us, we had all the details from online about santorini so we just needed someone to Guide us through so we cover the best parts in such tight timing and the receptionists helped a lot in that part.
The villa/hotel was perfect for group of friends, families, etc but not romantic as it seems in the pictures. For romantic places with same cost you need to go up to Oia area which is up the mountains".
Hence, the hotel was not exactly a 100% a 5 stars hotel as it had some lack in room service such as getting the villa so crystal clean, you would feel something is missing, It had ants in the bathrooms and at times on the bed "but honestly i am not sure if we complained this would have been sorted put or not", restaurant didn't feel welcoming as it was so dark with lots of cats so we didn't bother to eat there "better food can be found walking distance from hotel @ feggera restaurant", breakfast was decent but repeated every single day, swimming pool was so small not as it appeared in the picture so i suggest spend more time at the beaches. As for the spa, you can find better ones at Oia so save your money for better places unless you cannot bother the distance. Also the timing of the shuttle was not that great "in the afternoons" as it stops at 5 ish were most people would start wanting to go around for dinner etc "but the driver was nice".
To sum up, the hotel can be rated as a 4 stars hotel and not 5, good for groups and not couples looking for romantic place, do not expect fancy rooms with fancy lobby etc, hotel can be much better if the management looked better after room service, staff training, quality of utilities, etc. in the end, its a decent place but can be better.
