The room was small for two people and big luggage but we knew that already, yet they were fully booked. The toilet is not comfortable at all, very small and no curtain in the shower, so you can swim in the toilet after showering. At night after the sunset, if you are afraid of dogs, beware of the neighborhood dogs, unleashed at night in the street, they can jump out of nowhere and give you a mini heart attack (nothing to do with the hotel though).
Island wise, not very friendly people, mainly if you need help on the streets, you better ask tourists. 3 days are plenty for Santorini, you can discover it all in this frame of time. I personally didn't like the red beach, preferred the black one. Visit the market twice and get the prices for the item in each shop before you decide buying, prices can vary a lot from 1 shop to another. Don't get too excited over the food, it is surely better than Mykonos but no wow effect at all and over priced. Eat sandwiches, cheaper and tastier. They will serve you bread and water, but you will pay for them. Do not rent anything or sign any contracts before seeing the vehicle you are renting. You can be cheated for a lousy vehicle while you're paying a huge sum.
We checked in at Ifestos villa on July 22nd, 2015. We were 2 people, the hotel is nice, best location, a 10 minutes walking distance from Fira down town and the bus station, located in a calm neighborhood. Clean and new hotel, staff were great and very helpful. Breakfast was okay, not a big variety of food but clean and filling. Maria is amazing, ask her for anything and she will help you instantly. She gave us directions for the city upon arrival with 2 complimentary bottles of water since it was very hot and this is something you don't get everywhere for free. upon checking-out, the guy there dropped us with our big luggage for free to the bus station to catch the ferry, and that was incredibly sweet of him. We highly recommend the hotel.
Santorini is amazing, has the best scenery and views. Clean city, accessible by bus (don't rush renting a scooter or motor bike). Buses are cheap and can take you everywhere there, however; if it's a must then rent a car it is even cheaper than motor bikes and ATV. The rest can be done by walking. Don't miss having a glass of wine while watching the sunset there. Their shopping is better and cheaper than Mykonos. The city is a must see..
