This hotel has incredible views but beyond that, we were not particularly impressed by it. It's built on a steep, narrow strip down the rim of the volcano so a lot of hotel has been crammed into a small space and it requires negotiating steep stairs to get anywhere.
The rooms/bathrooms are unusual and pretty but I got tired of a quirky shower with its shower head right up against the wall and the single wall hook to hang all the wet towels and bath robes on. Otherwise the room was comfortable and spotless with all the usual amenities.
The hotel food was very fresh and beautifully prepared. And we agree with the countless compliments for the staff at the hotel.
This hotel may be rated 5 stars in Greece but sorry, it's not the Ritz. It did not feel particularly luxurious and other than its location and view, most of what the hotel had on offer was relatively ordinary. Given what we paid for our 7 night stay here, overall, we thought it was poor value for money.
