My wife and I just stayed at Kirini on two separate occasions in August 2009 on our honeymoon. Our first three nights at Kirini comprised the first leg of our 2-week trip to Greece and Italy. We stayed in a junior suite, room 24, and had the most fabulous 3 nights that we could imagine. First off, the suite was like a little house, completely white-washed in the local style, that was very comfortable to be in. We were given a bottle of local Assyrtico wine to enjoy, which is delicious, and which we were able to keep in our refrigerator to enjoy a glass of as the sun was setting. The views from this hotel are absolutely stunning. You are situated on a cliff a few hundred feet above sea level, with a very dramatic sweep of ultra-blue Mediterranean water below spreading out toward the volcano and volcanic rock-formed islands in the distance. There is a very calm vibe in the air with little outside noise, so you are able to sit and stare at the magnificent view for the entire day undisturbed.
The pool area is where we spent most of our days. The pics on the website are accurate and speak for themselves. Everyone was able to find a place to lay out and the service was impeccable.
Breakfast each morning was delicious. The hotel is small, and each day the guests can be found having breakfast by the pool with the view of the sea as the backdrop. The eggs, Minouri cheese, tomatoes, pastries, coffee, and yogurt were a major highlight of our stay.
As tremendous as the view at Kirini is, the staff is equally awesome. Christina, the manager, Katerina, in the office, and Georgos, also in the office, are there to accommodate any request you may have. After three nights, we sadly checked out of Kirini and took a ferry to Mykonos. However, Mykonos was nothing like Santorini, and after just one night we really wanted to return to Kirini. I called Christina, and she quickly arranged for us to come back to Kirini, and even upgraded us to the top suite in the entire hotel. Everyone knew my name the entire time I stayed at the hotel. Just friendly and fantastic service from a warm, kind and experienced staff.
All said, Kirini was probably the best hotel I've ever stayed at, and I am seriously considering booking another week there next August.
