We stayed at Sky of Thira for 2 weeks, my husband and 14 year old daughter and myself. This was a great central base to stay for travelling around the island, beaches to the South and Oia to the North and Caldera view just minutes away. The apartments are nicely decorated and very clean. Breakfast each morning was served poolside...

The owner, George, is SO rude!! I've never stayed in a place with such terrible customer service! When my friend and I arrived, they told us that we're going to have to switch rooms after our first night. Having to wake up at a certain time on our holiday to pack our bags and switch rooms is simply not ok....

Very noisy because at a crossroad with people driving fast. The swimming pool is ridiculous small. And most of all nobody at the reception most of the time... and when there is somebody staff very unhelpful and nasty... Not a good place to stay! 6

A travel agent in Athens booked us in to this hotel. While the hotel was serviceable and clean, the location wasn't ideal. George was rather gruff with us, and drove very fast (actually clipping the side of another car at one point). Breakfast was very limited, with just bread, juice, coffee. We asked if we could get yogurt or fruit...

These apartments are nice for those that like to be independent, because every of each has it's own entrance and balcony. The hotel is not on the Caldera side but it has sea view on the other part. The owner and it's staff are very friendly and they satisfy you any need you have. The breakfast is basic not buffet,...

Georgiou is a delightful host and will go out of his way to look after you.The breakfast menu could vary and the swimming pool was an eye-sore (middle of winter) with rubbish and putrid water. Overall a very reasonable and well appointed budget hotel with good clean rooms, free WiFi and a three minute walk to the Fira township.

Really enjoyed the place. The room was very comfortable and with a variety of places to stay and do other things (if ya know what I mean...). Nice people visiting it and a very charismatic George to whom I taught "Faleminderit" (thank You in albanian.) I would suggest to non much spending travelers.

My boyfriend and I were traveling through Greece and Santorini was a stop on the way. We were very fortunate to have Jon Vlachos from the hotel economy recommend us to go to a travel agency (passe partout) to book a cruise to the islands.

My partner and I spent 6 nights here and were disappointed with our stay. Although breakfast is included, it consisted of the same thing each morning so after day 4 we ventured out for our own breakfast.
