WARNING: if you are not in good shape do not stay here. You must walk up several flights of uneven stairs to get anywhere. If you are handicapped in any way DO NOT EVEN CONSIDER this hotel.
We spent 5 nights here on our honey moon because everyone told us we had to go to santtorini. Santorini is nice, but not for three days. First it is really windy and the beaches aren't so great, the island is only 10 miles long and its a tourist trap. There are some great wines on the island and if you choose to stay at Mystique you MUST do their wine tasting it was an excellent experience but I wouldn't stay more than two nights on Santorini.
Now to the hotel. When we first arrived and walked down I think 200 uneven stairs we were shown to our room which was literally a hole in the wall. Although there are amazing views from the hotel our room had no windows and was dark and musty. I decided to leave and was upgrade to a spiritual suite that had windows in every room and was beautiful! The hotel is located within walking distance to Oia which is romantic and quaint but walking in OIA is a work out. We stayed in bed until noon most days out of fear of the stairs. The restaurant in the hotel is ok, I wouldn't eat anything other than a snack or breakfast at the hotel there are tons of great restaurants within walking distance. The pool (aka the puddle) is tiny but functional. The staff is great, very accommodating. They always go above and beyond. If you stay here I recommend going to their sister hotel during the day which is in a traditional greek village has an excellent pool and is near the beach. Do not stay at the sister hotel because there is nothing to do at night there. Go to the sister hotel in the morning lie by the pool or beach come back in time to clean up and go to dinner in OIA. For Santorini this is an excellent hotel, especially since you can use the accomadations at its sister hotel. However, its not for everyone. If your not in good shape or want a beach vacation this is not for you. the beaches are awful and its usually too windy to use the beach or pool. Also call in advance and schedule a sailing trip to the hot springs to watch the sunset, by far the best thing to do on the island and don't forget the wine tasting which was awesome.
