The grounds of this hotel are probably worth the visit alone. The pool and private cabanas are the perfect place to relax and soak up the sun, which we did for one of our four days on Santorini. The spa looked well-appointed, though we felt the services were too pricey to be tempting. Our room, a garden view suite, was disappointing, however. It was dark and very Spartan in furnishing. The bathroom was small and the tub/shower very cramped if you try to stand up to shower. Also, the tub leaked every time we showered, so we had to stuff towels under it so as not to flood the floor of the bathroom. We were surprised that there were only two bath towels and they were not of very good quality.
We didn't spend a ton of time in our room, so this did not mar our visit, but I think my boyfriend expected something a little more upscale from a "Small Luxury Hotel of the World" designee.
The hotel is about 25 yards from the caldera, shops & restaurants, so it's in a good location. Just know that you won't have a view of the sea or the caldera from the hotel.
The staff and service did not disappoint.
