“Excellent value for money”
Reviewed October 1, 2007

Fantastic little hotel. Very resonably priced for Santorini. Keep in mind that it's not on the main hill (where all the expensive hotels and restaurants are) but its only about a 10 min walk.

The apartments are great as it gives you a little kitchenette to do your own cooking - great if you've got young kids.

The pool is fantastic and looks brand new. It's very relaxing to just lay on the sunchairs and take in the views.

The hotel is owned by a family and they are so nice and helpful by the end of it you feel as though you are part of the family. They picked us up from the airport and dropped us off at the ferry (each trip about 15-20 mins drive) and there was no cost for this! Rates are extremely cheap for what you get and I would recommend it for all types of travellers. Breakfast is also included. Rooms and bathrooms are very clean and kept in good condition.

While the main town centre is 10 mins walk, there are some restaurants and a mini market about 1 min walk down the road. The people in this area seem really nice and we felt very safe walking around at night.

I would be happy to return.

Reviewed October 1, 2007

Our apartment was a perfectly nice accommodation for an incredibly reasonable rate. No frills but comfortable enough with two bedrooms, a sitting area, kitchen and balcony. The bathroom was a bit small but still functional. The view of the back side of the island (not the kaldera) is beautiful and the pool area is inviting. The owners are very nice and helpful and even provide a simple breakfast included in the room rate. They also provide rides to and from the ferry. The center of Thira is a bit of a hike on foot. This is good in that there are no crowds near by and therefore it is not as loud at night but renting transport of some kind would be wise, especially since a number of sites and beaches are scattered around the island.
