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.

... After some huffing and puffing, I made it to the swallow “hot” spring…Mel was way ahead of me. It wasn’t that hot. It was more like waves of warm water mixed with waves of cooler water. The water was brown with sulfur, which ended up staining my white bathing suit (which Monica did warn about).
While we were in the hot springs suddenly there was a loud bang. A smaller sailboat had hit a big rock. Everyone in the water gasped. Then it hit two more ...
Woke today the the most beautiful views. Breakfast was fantastic. I spent the morning just lounging by the pool (I new it would happen at some stage but this was the last please I wanted it to happen, yes the back has gone). Managed to walk up ...
... all recognised us. Then we went back to the Tropical Bar to watch the volcano fireworks. We had the best table in the place, and met a few more Aussies. The fireworks were to mark the anniversary of the volcano erupting, and they were designed to resemble a real explosion. They were amazing! Afterwards, we paid another visit to a few of the same clubs from the night before, and all the door boys recognised us. None of us were keen to back up again, so we were home and tucked up in ...
