We stayed in Athens, Mykonos, Santorini and then Crete. This was by far #1. First of all, the place is spotless, all first class bedding, linens, towels, etc. And being on the black beach vs. the over-priced and crowded blue domes on the cliffs is the way to go in Santorini. Take a day trip over there at sunset. The hotel will setup transportation when you get there for $35, but then come back to paradise with the nicest and most accommodating staff and bartenders to be found anywhere in Greece! Cheers!
