    Location 4.29 /10

    The Albatros hotel is 1 mile from the centre of Fira, in the small village of Karterados. Located at the crossroads of the route to Fira and the route leading to the village, the hotel certainly is not in an ideal location. You will deplore the lack of a beach (Karterados beach is 1 mile away) and the presence of neighbouring houses and insufficiently maintained lawns. The airport is about 2 miles distant and the port is approximately 6 miles away. Two buses and the mini-bus commute guests (for a fee) to and from the hotel and organise excursions.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    The rooms, bright and clean all the time, have an area of 161 ft², but the decor is not particularly carefully selected - common wooden furniture. They are equipped with satellite TV, air conditioning, a refrigerator, telephone and a bathroom with only a shower. Note that only 6 rooms have a view (distant) onto the sea. Room service non-stop.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    The Albatros hotel is composed of a one-storey building in traditional Cycladic style, built in 1993 and housing 39 rooms. You will love the immense swimming pool (more than 1,076 ft²) and the poolside bar is great for sitting idly. Unfortunately the proximity to the adjacent houses and the lack of greenery and plants are a disadvantage. The dining room (for breakfast) with a large and quite lovely wooden bar, can accommodate about 40 people.

    Beach

    The island of Santorini has been shaped by the activity of its now dormant volcano. This explains why some of its beaches are therefore pebbled, while others are covered in black sand. Given the sharp relief on the west coast of the island, Santorini's beaches are to be found along its east coast, but don't expect to find tropical-looking beaches, the ones found here are a little more wild. That doesn't mean that the landscape is any less beautiful though.
    Kamari beach, black and sandy, is located some 6 mi from Fira and stretches about 3 mi along the coast. A promenade runs along the seafront. The fairly peaceful Monolithos beach, just up the coast, offers a similar landscape to that found at Kamari. The black sandy beach of Perissa is 9 mi south-east of Fira and covers more than 4 mi of coastline. It is particularly lively in the summer due to its many shops, bars and restaurants. However, if you want to do something different, head for the red beach. This is also a black sand beach (with crystal-clear water), but is surrounded by towering red cliffs. It can only be accessed on foot or by caïque. One of Santorini's most famous and most beautiful beaches, it is located not far from Akrotiri. Vlychada is in the Perivolos region and is often the least busy of the island's beaches. There are also two pretty beaches in the north that are usually frequented by tourists staying in Oia. Ammoudi beach is located directly below Oia, on the north-western tip of the island, while Armeni beach is a bit further up.

    To know

    Near the bustling days and lively nights of Fira, the hotel is frequented mostly by European clientele and is an appropriate refuge for those who seek quiet, making it a less appropriate place for families, because of its location and lack of facilities for children and the fact that it has no restaurant.

      Formerly known as the Tropical, the Alesahne Beach was renamed when it was reopened for the 2009 summer season, having undergone a complete renovation to make it the trendy hotel it is today. Although it is pleasantly decorated, the facilities are not what you would expect from the category of hotel that it is trying to be. It does, however, offer a beautiful setting on Kamari beach..

      The La Meduse is a small hotel which features typical Cycladic architecture and enjoys a wonderful beachfront location on Perivolos beach, even though you have to cross the road to get to it! It is also close to the local shops and restaurants, but the hotel itself is sorely lacking in facilities, which are limited to a small swimming pool and a breakfast room.

      Open since 2001, the Zannos Melathron was the first hotel in Greece to be awarded the 'Relais & Chateaux' label. It isn't very big, but its service reflects very high standards. It is housed in an 18th century building which is totally enchanting, but mainly reserved for a wealthy clientele. Guests hardly leave the place at all, but benefit from its peace and quiet and admire the view over Santorini island.

      The Homeric Poems hotel has gradually extended over the years. Since its opening in 2004, new rooms have been added without spoiling the surrounding area or the hotel itself. It only has 19 rooms, but it is perfect as it is, as much in its interior decoration and the warm welcome that it provides, as in the view that it affords over the caldera. It is a real haven for couples who are looking to relax and explore its romantic nooks and crannies, and, to be honest, this place was our favourite for the quality of its facilities and its suites with private swimming-pools!

      The Santorini Grace is hard to find but nobody wants to leave once they're there! Everything about this little hotel on Santorini is enchanting. With its architecture, typical of the island, and its position hanging off the cliffside, opposite the caldera, it is a real haven of peace. The chef here is also worth a special mention as he prepares exquisite meals. We still remember them now! It is definitely one of our favourite hotels on the island and most of the guests here come from Britain.
