“The best hotel in Santorini by far”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

My girlfriend and I wanted to stay at a hotel that felt as close to "home" as possible.We where looking for the best couples/family/friends hotel setting with romantic elements. We saw pictures on the internet and it was EXACTLY what we wanted. A Greek looking hotel close to everything!!!! We where a 1 minute walking distance to the nicest beach in Santorini, and on that beach had every restaurant and boutique you could imagine. The hotel was also right on the main road of Santorini so anything else you needed or wanted to see was so accessible by bus/cab or what we decided to do; rent a 4 wheeler. The owners of the hotel had so much hospitality and helped us out with directions or choosing events and tours to do for our vacation. The rooms where spotless, the food and drinks where remarkable, and best of all, the hotel and location was top notch. Wouldn't recommend any other hotel for your vacation in Santorini.

I have travelled extensively around the Greek Islands for over 20 years. I have enjoyed the hospitality of Marilyn and Vascillis at The Best for the last 5 years, going back there year after year, It is perfectly situated , near to the beach, local bus stop is a few hundred metres away on the main road where you can catch a bus to Fira and explore the island. Perissa is the perfect base to explore the island, and The Best is The Best place to stay. Small greek owned fanily run place. Perfect.

Room Tip: Some rooms have their own private sun terrace

If you want a family run hotel for a family, run by the warmest couple ever, then The Best is what it says it is. Warm, friendly, relaxed atmosphere where you really feel a part of family life. Our three year old was treated like royalty and made some great friends. Swimming every day in the pool and less than 2 minutes down the lane, the Meditterranean for a swim and snorkel amongst abundant marine life. With fantastic restaurants all within walking distance, The Best, is a great place to stay. If you like ancient Greece, then a short walk away on top of a 350 meter mountain is the ancient city of Thera. The views are amazing. Santorini is the most beautiful Island in the Med, Vassillis and Marylin are wonderful hosts. Cleanliness and room changes are frequent and top the list in making sure you are comfortable in you air conditioned room. The Best is a great place to explore all the delights that Santorini has to offer. Our thanks for a great stay.

Room Tip: Just ask Marylin for what you would like, she be more than happy to help!

We got here off-season, so we were put in a better room than the one we actually paid for (exta bed, kitchen and everything). There was also free satellite TV and internet access. The owners, Vassilis and Marylin, were very kind and helful with everything we needed and suggested some beautiful sights for us to visit.

The owner Vassilis is very friendly and kind. The rooms are clean, simple and roomy, the ceiling was high which was a real plus. Unlike the rooms in Oia or Imerovigli this place is budget friendly.

I have stayed at The Best on 3 occasions and it is a great place to stay. The family who run the hotel are friendly and very helpful. The facilities are excellent and the rooms are decorated to a very high standard. Relax by the pool or take a short walk from the beach, tavernas or bars. I really enjoyed my time there and the pace of life makes it an ideal place to unwind.
Public transport makes it easy to explore the rest of the island

Room Tip: Request one of the rooms with acces to the private sun teraace for greaa views of the beach

we are visiting Santorini for the second time and this summer we had the most beautifull holidays, even the weather was great, not too much wind.
At the hotel the biggest surprise,everything was brand new from the renovation bathroom with shower curtains which is must better, Internet connection everywhere,your own satellite receiver in your room to choose what ever program you want at any time.
The owner were very helpfull as usual to tell us where to go and what to visit.
It was really a very nice surprise and we have already reserve our V.I.P room with a private seaview terrasse for next summer....many thanks to marylin,vassilis and their great childrens to make us feel like at home

Room Tip: Ask for a room with access to the V.I.P terrasse !!!
