We planned our Santorini vacation less than a month in advance and could not find anything reasonable in Oia and Fira, which was a blessing in disguise. Totally loved our stay in Avant Garde, Akrotiri.
The place has a beautiful Jacuzzi with mountain and volcano views and we spent many hours chilling in the Jacuzzi, pool and sipping Mojito at the pool bar. The staff is very friendly and helpful and breakfast is served in the room or the pool based on your preference.
The taxi arranged at the reception cost us 20 euros to Fira and a taxi from Oia back to the hotel cost us about 45 euros (just after sunset). There is also option for a bus or ATV/ car if you have your driving licence. Oia and Fira were very crowded and hot so it was great to return back to Akrotiri and hibernate till next evening.
Red beach is about 3 km from the hotel and cost us 3.5 euro for 2 people in the bus (though there is nothing great at the red beach).
Overall we had a great time at Avant Garde and were quite happy with our stay! More
