My husband and I had a 4-day stay in Santorini as part of our honeymoon and decided to splurge at a nice place. After getting a heads-up from friends and reading reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided on Anastasis Apartments. We are so glad we did, this place was heaven. When Despina gave us the tour and turned the corner to reveal the first glimpse of the infinity pool looking over the Caldera, my expectations were already surpassed. The view from Anastasis is, in my opinion, the best view of the sunset on the entire island. The pool area was our favourite place to hang out because of the view, the awesome pool to cool off in and the service....the service!!! Let's talk about that for a minute: water, cold towels and fresh fruit being served to you pool-side without having to be asked, awesome recommendations for restaurants and what to do on the island, friendly hellos and goodbyes whenever we actually did choose to venture out, Despina and her crew were so accommodating without being overly-attentive.
We were more than comfortable in our suite which was complete with a kitchen that we used to cook a nice dinner one night, a luxurious marbled bathroom, a sitting area, lovely bedroom area and finally a walkout terrace area to eat breakfasts and enjoy the view of the caldera.
One of the other perks about Anastasis is its location. Being in Imerovigli was better, in my opinion than being in the touristy Fira or Oia locations because it was so quiet and relaxing and you didn't have a flock of tourists walking past your pool everyday. It was nice to be able to go to Fira and Oia when we wanted to since they were not too far away, but coming back to Anastasis was always a treat.
The only thing we think that could make the stay even better is if they served dinner, then we could enjoy the place even more and eat this on our private terrace, but I suppose this did give us a reason to leave the apartment, otherwise I think we would have stayed here every night. The food that was available (dips, snacks, etc.) was incredibly tasty.
Best hotel experience I have ever had, hands-down. Hope to come back for an anniversary!!!
