We booked Aethrio for a good central location and it delivered on that front.
We were aware that the hotel was not on the caldera edge with sunset views and were quite unsure if we should spend lot more for a sunset view from the hotel or room. We decided to save the money and spend or on nice lavish dinners instead.
You get the views from anywhere in Oia. We did not mind coming back to the room and not seeing the view from there as well. Watching the sunset with other people was a lot of fun. The crowds actually applaud the sun. The sun set spectacularly on the horizon.
Breakfast was a good event with alot of choice, the hotel was clean with a nice pool, helpful staff. I would recommend.

... in it we were that far back in the crowd. The sun hid behind the islands in the distance and twilight enlightened the sky for 20 more minutes. Nature is just so stunning. Buildings and man made things are magnificent but there’s nothing like God’s creation. The Swiss alps and the sunset of the Greek islands – now that’s absolutely priceless. We trotted back to our accommodation, which was reasonable and comfortable enough. ...
Another beautiful day in paradise. Didn't have breaky today, decided to go for a long walk. So down I went. Down the 224 steps to the bottom. I walked along the waters edge until I can to a little cove were I risked a swim. It was amazing. Before I walked back up the 224 steps early arvo it was time for some food. I think it would has been better to wait until I got to the top was ************* a full tummy. I spent the late arvo by the pool reading and finishing the bottle of ...
... us their displays of fish and fresh fruit and veges. We had to turn them down and say we had already eaten. Maybe tomorrow night. Peter looked at one of the menus and noticed that they were serving Lamp chops. I think that tickled his fancy. Looking forward to exploring the island a bit more tomorrow but we are already in love with Santorini.
