We traveled to Santorini during shoulder season in May, when prices are reasonable and the weather warm enough. Because the only contact information we could find was a phone number, we phoned the hotel international long-distance and conveyed in broken Greek/English the dates we wanted. She didn't request a deposit, we didn't no-show, and our beautiful room was waiting for us after we got off the ferry. The "phone us, no deposit" situation seemed almost archaic, but it set a wonderful tone for a relaxed, slow-paced (in the best way) trip! The view from the room is stunning, the view from the pool is stunning, all of Oia is stunning. For the price of making it all the way to Greece, we didn't want to stay in a hostel in Thira, and this was an amazing value (by which I mean Lauda's immediate neighbors - also hotel/resorts - were 2-5 times its price)!
