If you enjoy a first class experience without all of the negatives that come with large mega resorts, then Villa Renos is for you. Not that Santorini has any large hotels, which makes the need to deliver a first class experience in a very small space incredibly important. With just 9 rooms, the family-run team of Zina, Petros and their son Vasilis greet you at every opportunity and tend to your needs before you knew you had a need! Amazing, amazing home-style breakfasts each morning, make you soon forget about the runny scrambled(ish) eggs and mushy bacon you get at a typical breakfast buffet. (Ask for Zina's tomato soup. It's made with tomatoes from her farm.)
The views can't be beat and the location adjacent to the main city center is perfect. You can walk to dozens of restaurants within 5 minutes and there are plenty within a 1 minute walk of the hotel.
Other suggestions for Santorini overall:
Oia (pronounced ee-ah), is an amazing town as well. Much smaller than Fira, but more quaint (I say that even though Fira is pretty small and quaint itself.) We only visited Oia for the day, but it;s much hotter there in the summer because the sun starts to hit it very early and the sun sets over that side of the island, so keep that in mind. Also, if you want more to choose from in terms of activities, dinners, nightlife, etc, Fira will offer you more. An Vasilis will tell you all of the good restaurants and help you avoid the tourist traps and rip offs.
Rent a car, visit the Red Beach, Perissa, Pyrgos, etc. BTW, Vasilis will point you in all the right directions. He will arrange a car rental, help you book sunset cruises, tell you how much time you need in certain destinations to get a good grip on it.
There's no way to go wrong here. We highly recommend Villa Renos!
