This hotel is in a great location, 2 minute walk down the hill into the main shopping/eating area of Fira, which is very lively and entertaining in the evenings. The hotel itself is really nice with all rooms facing to the sea- the pool area is lovely, as are the rooms. The suites are obviously much nicer than the standard rooms, but the standard rooms are more than adequate, with really nice bathrooms and a small outside seating area.
The only thing that lets this hotel down is the breakfast. There were very little options and those options that were available weren't the best. We went elsewhere for breakfast everyday after the 1st day!
The hotel does not offer lunch or dinner, but being so close to so many restaurants means this is not a problem. There is a takeaway 'gyro' cafe in Fira called 'Obelix', which will deliver take away great greek kebabs and salads up to the hotel, and the hotel staff are happy for you to eat around the pool!!
We opted to hire a quad bike for 25 euro's a day, which meant we were able to get around the island at our leisure. You can get around the entire island and back in a few hours, it really is quite small, but travelling around is very enjoyable as there is so much to see on the way. we found some great Taverna's on our travels that we would have missed otherwise! The Dream Island hotel have a car park by the entrance, where we parked our quad bike.
Our favorite places were Fira, Oia and the Harbour, where there are some of the most fantastic fish restaurants I've ever seen- the sunset here is amazing. We LOVED Santorini !
