We arrived very early in the morning at 7am at the hotel and had to wait till 8am for the reception to open. Evita came at 8am and greeted us with a huge smile. Unfortunately the guests staying in our room did not check out early so we were supposed to wait till 12pm for the room to be ready. She apologised even though it's not her nor the hotel's fault as check in time is always in the afternoon anyway. We kept our bags there and went for a walk but we were too tired from the whole night of not sleeping in Athens airport so we decided to sit on the bench in front if the reception and wait. We fell asleep on the bench in the scorching sun and the hotel staff woke us up not long after when our room is ready. We managed to check in at around 10:30am as the guests left early. We appreciate the efforts of the hotel and all the staff to prepare the room in perfect condition in such a short time. The housekeeper is extremely efficient in her job as we observed. The staff is also very nice and we chatted with him few times, a humourous and polite guy.
We had the cave house just across the reception with a big shared patio and the view is amazing. The room is big and spacious with a double bed and a single bed. We kept the bed like a couch and the cushions on the bed is very comfy. Kitchenette has all the utensils we needed and the coffee machine makes good coffee. There is also a water boiler if you need to make some tea. They provide you with coffee powder and tea bags. The shower is really hot and the water pressure is strong as well. We have no complains and we really like the room. I would say its great for the price with a caldera view. Their other rooms must be much nicer but this is the only category we would pay for. We were even thinking to book another hotel without view which is way cheaper but we are glad we didn't. It's a great experience to stay in the historical cave house with modern amenities and awesome view. It was definitely worth it.

... the days are just a touch hot for us. The nights require a jacket, but aren't bad, and therefore the temperatures are pretty good. The crowds and prices are also much reduced compared to summer. We can usually have our pick of tables if we arrive by 6 or 6:30. There's never a rush to leave, and in fact, the Greeks will let you eat until midnight if you wish. Back to Oia... the town is quite beautiful and the views back around the caldera to Fira ...
... and capers. The wine is generally pretty dry, and they manufacture mostly white wine on Santorini. After quite a few try's I did find one that is a little more like a Pinot Grigio semi sweet...yum Our last stop was to the other end of the island called "Oia" which is Santorini's most photographed village. I was pretty pleased with my blue and white buildings shot! The buildings with the rounded blue roofs ...
... at least one island stop. Since we were in the throes of the off season, especially on the islands, we decided that we might be able to get a good deal on a house or apartment rental instead of a hotel. After cruising a few options on AirBnB we decided to send out a couple emails and so we were lucky that our little sidewalk lunch café had wifi so that we could check our progress. Happily we opened our email to find one quick response for a cave house rental and we decided ...
... our photos so much they actually joined in with a few sneakily. Dinner was fantastic except the portions were huge we barely touched our main course as the entre was the size of a house. We spent the night retelling disgusting jokes at the dinner table offending yet another few people within earshot. The food was fantastic and put us in a coma. We left and went to a jewelry shop which gives us a 10% discount, a fact that was not lost on briony and I almost had to drag ...
... down the cliff seam not to bad. Somehow found the energy to hit the bar up again, this time starting at the fun pub for some beer pong, followed by a mission to get more free singlets and drinks specials. Met up with a few friendly faces we met the previous night, as well as most of the staff at our hotel which all seamed to moonlight at bouncer jobs in town. Mission completed we all made it home merchandised up, for another restful night in our ...
