Our 6 night stay in Santorini was busy and we knew we would be spending little time in our hotel. Accommodation was generally quite expensive in Santorini and this is more of a 'budget' hotel accommodation and a matching price range. The rooms were very basic, but also very clean (and cleaned every day with new linen/towels etc) and very quiet as it's a little out of the town of Imerovigli. You really do get what you pay for (the bed and pillows were average, the shower head was broken, some of the furniture was a bit 'worn'), but in saying that, the view is priceless. From our room (and likely all the rooms from what we saw) and the pool there is a spectacular view of the sunset and the caldera. The pool is a really good size for the island (as we had many friends staying nearby in Fira and Imerovigli and also saw their accommodation to compare) and the price range. The breakfast is fresh and tasty, but is mainly just a bread roll with condiments.
The local taverna (Tasos) was also great food and friendly service. The hotel is a short walk to Imerovigli, but it is almost a vertical climb (so coming back is fine!). We would definately suggest hiring a car/quad bike for the time you spend on the island to avoid many vertical hill climbs!
The proprieters (although limited English) went out of their way with us in providing us personal service - we couldn't believe their willingness to help us during our 6 night stay - even getting back an iphone that we left in the back of a taxi.
If you are looking to have an affordable stay in a clean room with excellent views and a great pool, I would definately recommend this accommodation but be mindful it is 3-star ish and nothing more so don't expect a champagne stay on a beer budget in terms of breakfast or the aesthetics of the rooms.
