We caught the bus from the airport to Fira and the bus driver enthusiastically pointed us in the direction of the hotel - his directions were spot on. A short walk up a cobbled hill and we were greeted with the reason people go to Santorini...the breathtaking views. After taking this in we reached the hotel, a short walk from the cathedral. The staff at the hotel were incredibly welcoming and told us all we needed to know about Santorini, pointed out tasty truly local restaurants and things we should do. Our room on the upper floor with a balcony was very clean and right next to an irrisistable looking hot(ish) tub. A well stocked and fairly inexpensive mini bar provided the perfect bottle of wine to enjoy in the hot tub watching the sun set after a trip out the the volcano and walking up THAT hill.
We were only going to stay on Santorini for three days but liked the island and the hotel so much we stayed there the whole week and decided to go to Mykanos another time. Very romantic, very relaxing and just what I needed to take me away from everyday busy life.
If you stay here you have full use of the sister hotel's pool and spa facilites (Aressana Suites) although the Theoxenia was enough for us. Breakfasts were delicious and promptly served on the balcony in the morning sunshine. The home made plum jam is highly recommended!
The only draw back was that some of the sound of a nightclub in the town does make it through the walls and I'm a light sleeper but it wasn't put me off the hotel.
Thanks for a great holiday (you even arranged the best weather!)
