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.

Santorini airport to Oia We arrived very early from the 05:15 flight from Athens and landed in Santorini at 06:20 in the morning. We had a sleepless night waiting for the flight in Athens airport for 8 hours, manage only to take a short 30 mins nap on the flight. The local public bus stop is directly in front of the exit of the airport in Santorini …
... was "scheduled" and then waited for the bus to Oia, so it was definitely coffee time!), we set about exploring Oia with ************e else around, so it was most conducive to a bit of retail therapy! I've done my fair share of boosting the Greek economy which I hope is appreciated! Pre-dinner (Mumm) bubbles back at Markezini Suites, thanks to Helen (and Eugene) :) Dinner at Volcano ...
... one volcanic island with a cove that is warm due to sulpher rising from the volcano crater 450 feet below the surface. Rich swam to the cove with the others but indecloned due to the warning that the sulpher would ruin my bathing suit!
The landscape is varied, due to the volcano, there are so many layers of different rock. What there is very little of is vegetation. Nothing grows on the volcanic Rick. ...
... 8217;t allowed to put our toilet paper in the toilet, we had to put it in the bin which was odd and gross. The expensive places had pools which would have been nice. We were talking to other Australian tourists at dinner and they had been to the beach that day and it wasn’t very nice they said. Black, rocky sand. Where we were at Oia there is no beach, just cliffs down to the water. All very scenic and beautiful.
