We stayed in this hotel in June 2006 for our honeymoon. We found and booked it on the internet, so were a bit concerned as to what we would find when we got there. All our concerns were laid to rest after we arrived. The rooms were clean, the staff extremely friendly and helpful, and the location was great. The pool was very nice, and as I said the staff were always willing to offer suggestions and tell you the best way to get here or there.
It was a short walk (10 minutes) up to the heart of Thira, and yet it was lovely to be staying somewhere slightly off the beaten path. The room had a mini fridge, and there is a supermarket up the road to allow you to "stock up". Across the street was a great Creperie were the food and atmosphere was fantastic. The town of Karterados doesn't have much, but with Thira so close and the pool so nice it didn't matter to us.
The bus to both Kamari and Oia stops right outside the hotel, which was very convenient to get to and from the beach and sites. The best restaurant we ate at was called Elia in Thira, it was the only one the hotel staff would reccomend, and it was truly excellent. It's in the maze of side streets of Thira, and doesn't have the caldera view, but they did have a three piece band playing Greek music and incredible food that set the mood moreso than some of the restaurants with the view. We will definately be staying at the Albatros again in the future.
