    Location 9.76 /10

    It is situated some hundred metres from Fira's downtown area with its shops, restaurants and other activity. The port is about 5 miles away and the airport is close to 4 miles away.

    Accommodation 6.20 /10

    The rooms, bright and mid-sized, are furnished modestly, without much emotion, and all rooms have TV, a direct dial telephone, a large refrigerator and a bathroom with a shower. You will love the vaulted ceilings, typical on this volcanic island. Room service is available 24 hours a day, but unfortunately the air conditioning is provided only if you pay extra for it and the terraces are badly separated from each other. The view onto the sea (to the horizon) and the swimming pool.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    Built in 1994 in the traditional style of the island, the hotel is a lone building with one floor, housing 49 rooms which are all grouped around a curving swimming pool, stretching on about 80 m and freshened by palms, bougainvillea and geraniums (an exception, since most hotels lack flowers or shrubs). The communal areas are really spacious, notably, the huge lobby (around 120 m2) and the dining room which serves breakfast (a buffet from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.).

    Food and drink

    The New Haroula does not have a proper restaurant but rather a room in which breakfast is served in the form of a cold buffet, from 8:00am till 10:00pm. Don't expect a gargantuan meal though! The food on offer shows little to write home about in terms of variety and includes nothing more than the bare necessities: bread, cereal, canned fruit, and yogurts. You will need to look further afield for your other daily meals. If you want to find real Greek food in all its glory, aim for Fira's side streets, which are packed with small restaurants serving Greek and international cuisine. Don't hesitate to enter into the small narrow alleys, as these are where you'll find some of the best places!

    Beach

    The island of Santorini has been shaped by the activity of its now dormant volcano, which explains why some of its beaches are pebbled, while others are composed of black sand. Given the sharp relief along the west coast of the island, Santorini's beaches are to be found along its east coast, but don't expect to find any tropical beaches, as the ones found here are completely different. This doesn't make the landscape any less beautiful though.
    Kamari beach, located some 6 mi from Fira, is a black sand beach stretching over approximately 3 mi along the coast, with a promenade running all the way along the seafront. The fairly peaceful Monolithos beach, just up the coast, offers a similar landscape to the one found in Kamari. The black sand beach of Perissa lies 9 mi southeast of Fira and covers more than 4 mi of coastline. It is especially lively in summer, due to the large number of shops, taverns, and restaurants. However, if you want to experience something a little different, head for the red beach. Also consisting of black sand, it is surrounded by huge red cliffs and has clear waters. It is only accessible on foot or by caïque, and is one of Santorini's most famous and beautiful beaches, close to Akrotiri. Vlychada lies in the region of Perivolos and is often the least busy of the island's beaches. There are also 2 attractive beaches in the north, which are usually frequented by tourists staying in Oia. Ammoudi beach is located directly below Oia, on the northwestern tip of the island, while Armeni beach is a bit further up.

    To know

    The welcoming family atmosphere in this hotel is appreciated by regular clients from Australia and a few French. Couples will undoubtedly appreciate this unpretentious hotel facility, which is ideally located to allow one to enjoy the vibrant life in Fira.

      • Value for money 6.94
      • Location 7.42

      The Atlantis is located on a hill in the town of Fira and was the first hotel to be built on the island in the 1960's. It is closed and renovated every year during the winter season, which means that the few facilities that it has are well maintained. The hotel enjoys fine views over the volcano crater, but it is also close to the pedestrian area of the capital, Santorini, making it well placed for exploring this small Greek town on foot. Most of the guests here are senior citizens from America.
