We stayed at the Plaza Hotel as part of a package through Gate1 Travel. The hotel is small but clean. The frontdesk attendant kept leaving the premises. So it was a little hard to get questions answered. But when he was there he was friendly and helpful.
The hotel is a 3 minute walk from Kamari Beach. The beach is all black stones at one end and black sand at the other. It is lined with tavernas, hotels and shops. I recommend the Taverna Alexa. Their Greek sampler platter for 2 was delicious! (All of the tavernas that we tried were great!) The (stray) dogs and cats will keep you entertained (and take care of your leftovers for you)!
You can walk to the ruins of Ancient Thera. From the hotel it's about a 10 or 15 minute walk to the tour bus sites. If you're brave and want to walk up the zig-zag road (and enjoy the view!) it'll be about another 30-45 minutes to the top of the road. (And then you actually have to climb up to the ruins.) Either way--wear GOOD WALKING SHOES! The ruins are...well...ruins. The footing is loose and rocky. Start EARLY before it gets hot!
You can catch a bus in Kamari Beach for Fira or Oia.
The hotel has a nice location. The rooms are small (especially the shower!) but that's normal for Greece. Breakfast was o.k.
I didn't go in the pool. But it looked clean.
We really didn't spend much time in the hotel except to sleep. But it was a pleasant stay.
Enjoy your vacation!!
