Just back from a stay at Aigialos last week and we were very pleased .
Saw where other people were disappointed with the pool and their rooms but at Sorokos, all was well.
Yes, the pool is tiny but we weren't there to lounge around and if you have privacy issues, don't stay in Thira.
Most properties are terraced and next to each other so people at hotels next door can look into your room.
That was easy for us to solve by closing the shades and turning on the AC.
If you are facing the caldera you will have to close your shades anyhow before the sun actually sets. In June, the sun burns directly into your room late afternoon.
We had a private terrace which was fantastic,MEMORABLE, but if you sit there, make sure you wear a strong sunscreen.
For those who are sun worshipers this is the spot for you.
You can overdose on it :-)
The sun in Santorini is the strongest we have ever felt and we have been all over the world.
At breakfast Giorgia took wonderful care of us and if you want to stay in for dinner she will oversee that too.
This is a quiet place if you are a light sleeper.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Aigialos Collection consists of sixteen, renovated neoclassical houses that were originally the fine homes of the island's noble captain families. The architecture and design of the houses bring to life the traditional way of life of the island's nobility. Restored to perfection by master masons using local volcanic stone and coloured lime plaster, the houses are linked by cobbled walkways. Situated on the rim of the caldera, sheer cliffs that rise from the sea, the hotel overlooks the island's famed volcano. ... more less
