The location of this hotel is shocking - it's right next to the military airport which is extremely noisy, and about 25 minutes' walk to the nearest village of interest. Although there is a beach nearby, it is a very unpleasant one and we actually didn't spend any time on it despite hating staying in the hotel itself. The nearest public transport available near the hotel was so rare that we had to rent a car for the whole duration of our stay, which added to the cost of our stay quite significantly!
The room itself was a decent size but had a terrible smell we couldn't get rid of. Breakfast was appalling - I'd never seen such a poor selection of items, actually, and the little that was available was of dismal quality. The orange juice was just disgusting, the bread was stale and the butter and yoghurt were not fresh. Both of us were ill most of our time in Santorini, and I am quite tempted to believe this was due to the poor hygiene of the breakfast, which was served in the reception room of the hotel which was also used as a kitchen and a bedroom from what seemed to be the mother of the owner/manager...
Although there was a pool bar which could have helped create an atmosphere in the pool, it was closed for the whose duration of our stay. The pool itself was good but it was impossible to relax by it as we were constantly disturbed by the planes taking off literally above our heads...
My advice: don't stay there!
