Great hotel. Great location - up high, overlooking the caldera. About 5 minutes walk from the town centre of Fira.
Lots of white buildings, lots of rooms, well-spread out so guests are not all on top of each other. A few different pools here too - again , more room to spread out while you are swimming/snaking.
Good facilities for those who are in wheelchairs. There are ramps down to the rooms and pools. Although the ramp that leads to the pool should, perhaps be avoided - by those in wheelchairs and those on foot. I saw at least 5 people have a skid down that ramp.
Breakfast was included - very good selection of foods/drinks on offer.
Rooms were very large and comfortable. Marble floors and A/C made for a very cool stay - which is great when the temps start moving over 35 degrees.
Staff were very helpful.
Free WiFi was also included - but I have to say, it was pretty unstable. The only place we could get WiFi to work reliably was the hotel lobby - and that didn't always work either.

Being very lazy and combining a few days of paradise into one blog entry, but hey, the wifi on these islands is so sporadic, I'm feeling lucky if I get to open a Facebook post, let alone like it.

From one Greek Island to another – Crete to Santorini. It was four hours on a fast ferry – a big Cat (Mega Jet) – from Rethymno. After resting up for a few days I decided it was time to move on.
The last day in Rethymno I met another Kiwi. Same age as me and it didn't take long before we both realized we knew each other from University days. Caught up over a few beers. Good night. Small world.
... distance. Then up a little higher and do it again. Then a little higher and a little higher. We thought once we reached the top we would see not only Fira but also Oia. We climbed all the way up and celebrated with a group picture. J Then I started thinking about how I had to go back down.
For whatever reason, going up I never thought about falling, but going down, it was all I thought of. Alex was running down and hit some loose gravel and ...
Santorini Today was a free day so so we had nothing booked in, so we had breakfast in a little cafe then looked around the shops. Returned to our hotel to have a swim, then then our room to have wine and watch the sunset from our balcony. The sunset takes while, so it stays light for ages. We had dinner and then went for another walk and decided to take the cable car down to the port and look around and returned by donkey ( technically they are actually mules). What an ...
... decided to try it out the first morning then buy groceries for the rest of the mornings. I ordered greek yoghurt with honey and fruit, which also came with tea, orange juice and the most heavenly toast ever created. Seriously, they serve the most amazing toast any of us had ever eaten. And with this being said, we then decided to have every breakfast at the hostel.
Monday morning was cloudy and rainy so we decided to go into the town of Fira for some exploring. After ...
