I have seen negative reviews about this place but i think they came from people expecting club med for 35 Euros. The desk is closed after 6 but they leave a note and keys to your room. What happened to us was somebody checked in earlier in the day with almost the same name as mine. They thought it was...

We went to Santorini on 5 may onwards... weather was fine, swimming was little cold then I expected, but tanning in the gastronomy near the sea is nice. Reminds me Barasti in Dubai, you can eat, drink, swim n tan in the same place, plus Staff are so helpful. So from the hotel to sea gastronomy only aprox 50 meters....

The location is good, they provide a van to take you to the city, and if you kiss the timings it will cost you only 5€ to go. The pool is good, bring money for the beer, since you pay everything on the spot. Breakfast is simple, although very tasty. Only but I will mention, is the bathroom, shall have...

This is badly located unless you are planing on a car rental or bike. it's a 20 min drive to Fira. the beach nearby which is advertised is ugly and nobody visits that beach. Their breakfast is very poor and shouldn't be called buffet since they just have bread butter jam and ham to offer. Customer service is very low,...

I havnt been to santorini before but the hotel prices are expencive here so for the price you pay i guess its okey. The toilet smelled a bit like urin (however i think both fira and oia does). The bedframe was built to big for the acutal beds so theyve cut out foam matress in the middle (40cm wide), so...

Run very efficiently by the family. Comfortable rooms in comfortable settings. A little away from Fira center but compensated by running regular bus services free of cost to and fro. Highly recommended for those on low cost budget.

Worst hotel. In the middle of nowhere. Close to nothing, no public transportation. They said they offered a transfer to Fira (downtown) and back to hotel that was always late and one day left me behind not stopping in the right spot, it was in the middle of the night, basically no taxis in the city and I had no...

We arrived late at night, needed a shower and bed. We found the shower to not be attached to the wall (extremely hard for a girl to wash her hair) and slippery floors. The beds were supposed to be double, they were single with a piece of foam in between them (friend's of ours next door weren't lucky enough to...

If you are looking for reasonable price with easy access to Fira, this is the right hotel for you. They offer free transfer from airport and every 2 hours to Fira. The hotel has a nice pool and is located nearby a beach which is similar to Kamari or Perissa, but much calmer. Rooms are ok, greek standard. Only problem...
