Heaven on earth!!!

BREATHTAKING Villas! Clean, spacious, and amazing staff. The hotel has the most ICONIC views of the caldera and the hotel itself is perched in the mountainside (or carved out of the mountainside). The cave suite was SO spacious. We had an entire living room with two couches, kitchenette, and table. The bedroom was spacious and the bed was so comfortable! We opted for the "honeymoon cave suite" so we had a private outdoor hot tub that overlooked the caldera. Seriously unreal!!! We also had a private seating area with a table and two chairs and an outdoor sunbed. The breakfast buffet was delicious and had a nice spread of hot items (eggs, potatoes, spanikopita) and cold items (cheeses, pastries, fruit, cereals). None of the rooms of the hotel face the actual sunset. FEAR NOT! They have a PRIVATE sunset/sunrise viewing balcony (with about 15 reclining sunbeds) that is the best on the island (in my opinion). It's not crowded and is totally unobstructed view of the sunset. Please note: The hotel is not reachable by car/bus/taxi (cars aren't allowed beyond a certain point) and there are a lot of stairs to navigate to get to the hotel's front door. Therefore, I recommend using the hotel's transfer service (it's very reasonable... 25.00 euros and it includes transport from the port/airport and a luggage porter. Trust me. This is WORTH IT's WEIGHT IN GOLD!! When you see the stairs, you'll understand.
