I have wanted to visit Santorini for years and decided last minute to do just that. I'm glad we did. The hotel is located in Firostefani which is a great location with good restaurants and an amazing view high up over the caldera. The Belvedere is located along a cobbled footpath (ladies take flat sandals or wedges with rubber soles as they are very slippy) - making for an interesting and entertaining "ice dance" walk down to Fira. First impressions are good as the hotel rooms tumble down the cliff to a nice pool area that is just the right size. It is worth booking a suite for the views and the space - as although we booked a room with a sea view that is not what we got on our first evening - we were moved for the following 7 nights after speaking to the manager and given a room with a lovely glass balcony near reception. I really liked the hotel, its rooms and location - breakfast was its biggest drawback. It was included in the room rate - but we walked along the path and had delicious breakfasts in one of the cafes clinging to the cliff edge
The fact that the girl serving breakfast played the same tracks of music very loudly each morning during breakfast encouraged us even more to look elsewhere for breakfast. Diana the girl at the pool bar was completely the opposite and the star of the bar - always chatting friendly helpful and smiley.
