Excellent pool area! Make sure you check-in at 2 pm and don't show up hours earlier - my boyfriend and I had taken an early (6 am) flight into Santorini and were stuck waiting poolside for 6 hours(which wouldn't have been so bad, except we were extremely tired as we had pulled an all-nighter to catch our flight). The studios have great ambiance surrounding them and the hotel grounds are beautiful. You'll get a fantastic view from accross the street next to "Senor Zorba" the Mexican Restaurant. I highly recommend getting something for breakfast at the bakery across from Senor Zorba's as well - very inexpensive (but be warned, it's non-Air Conditioned inside, so you will boil while choosing your bakery food lol). We had breakfast once from Mesotopos (at a cost of 7 euros) which consisted of coffee, tea, bread, sweet bread, a hard boiled egg, and a greek cookie to go with the coffee and tea. The bed wasn't the most comfortable bed in the world, but I still slept fine. Transfer from the airport can be arranged and it costs you 10 euros per person. (Might be cheaper to take a taxi, but we wanted to be on the safe side. This hotel is quite up there on a hill). We did have a great conversation with Flora the day of our departure, and she gave us a big goodbye hug and kisses which we appreciated! If I go back to Santorini, I would opt to stay in Oia rather than Fira, but because of the atmosphere.
