My husband and I recently stayed at Hotel Ira for our honeymoon and had a wonderful time. Hotel Ira has an absolutely amazing location, with views of the caldera. The hotel itself looks like a picturesque Santorini village with doors built into the hillside, bridges over walkways, and, of course, lots of stairs.
I would highly recommend the suite we stayed in for honeymooners (Suite Eolos). Hotel Ira's website advertises that this is room is private, and it was even more private than we had hoped! A staircase down from the pool, it is isolated from all the other rooms with an incredibly private (and good-sized) balcony. The only thing better for honeymooners than the privacy is the view.
The staff, particularly the management staff, is incredibly helpful and knowledgeable, recommending restaurants, giving transportation advice, providing extra towels and shampoo, etc.
The hotel is located in Firostefani, about a 15 minute walk from Fira, the main city in Santorini (though not nearly as picturesque as Oia). The walk is beautiful, with constant views of the caldera along a pedestrian walkway - very pleasant.
