My husband and I stayed here on our 25th anniv trip to Greece. We spent 2 nights. Hoping for an upgrade, I asked, but we were put into a small double (apartment). The toilet ran. There was no shower curtain, so water ended up all over the floor, and had one of those hand-held deals. You had to turn the water heater on (and off) to get hot water, and it was very noisy. The bed was comfortable, for Greece. We were told you can't drink the water, so were given a bottle when we arrived. There is a kitchenette area with a small refrigerator. There were a couple dishes, but not one piece of silverware, and no bottle opener or corkscrew or anything. The water wasn't replenished the next day, and fortunately, we had some that we'd brought on the ferry from Athens, because one bottle of water doesn't go very far. I had internet the first night, but then nothing the next morning. I asked them to fix it, and they didn't know how, and so, we were without for the rest of the time there. We asked them to call our airline to inquire about something, and were told to go to the airport and talk to them ourselves. The breakfast was very good, with omelette crepes, and cheese pastries, crepes with nutella, bacon, croissants, Greek yogurt, etc., buffet-style. When we inquired about dinner, there wasn't much thought put into making suggestions for us, so we were basically on our own to find something. The deck looks out over the caldera, and is a spectacular view. The pool is tiny, not even big enough to swim around. You just float around, cool yourself off, and get out.
The location was hard to find. Take the road toward Oia, turn off at Imerovigli, and go straight through (don't turn left), go past Jimmy's Rental Car, then turn right, go over the speed bumps, and through a narrow passageway, get to the parking at the end, where you have to park. Then walk all the way down the path, and Ilioperato is at the end. I inquired about pick-up at the port, and drop off at the airport. It was 17 euro each person each way. This is why we rented a car. It was the best idea. Cheap, and got to see the entire island on our own. We had to go to the airport, as mentioned above, to inquire of our airline.
Overall, we paid well over $200/night for this place, and in our opinion, it wasn't worth the cost. There are plenty of other places along that strip with just as beautiful views that looked to be better quality.
