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.
But technological issues aside these Greek islands are getting better and better. I have to say that I prefer Santorini to …
Waking up around 10am we grabbed the free breakfast at the hostel and booked our boat excursion for 2pm which would take us to an active volcano and hot springs on Nea Kameni. Finally we could also see the beautiful island in the daylight and the ocean not too far off in the distance. Still tired from the long journey the night before, we went back to bed for an hour before really starting our day. After waking up we walked to the main ...
... small number of tourist shops and restaurants. So I had another swim, which was amazing. The water was so clear that it was magnificent. Then I decided to have some lunch - and it was quite hilarious as the restaurant owners had BBQ grills and coals and were using hair dryers to fan the coals to cook the meat! A chicken gyros, bottle of water and a small beer only cost 5 euro, and was delicious.
Back on the board again to sail across to the end ...
... at the Santorini brewing company on the way back and ended up staying for dinner. Then we made our way downhill to our villa easy walk down! To finish with a night cap. Graham What a day we've had. A bit of a sleep in to 8:00, breakfast at the restaurant on the roof, packed our bags, paid the hotel bill and staggered down the road with our bags to the wharf for the high speed catamaran to the island of Santorini. The cat was very ...
... created a cooling effect down the narrow streets. Forgot my hat today - silly billy so had to fork out as it is already 30 degrees C. As you now know (from the wise word section in yesterdays blog) the major eruption that changed the area took place some 3,600 years ago. There is a site that was only recently discovered, in the 70's which was covered by that eruption, it is poorly communicated and is not currently being excavated as the Greek government has ...
