Santorini Palace: "Don't buy it..." Santorini Island Hotel Tip by ApatiGR

Santorini Island Hotels: 187 reviews and 371 photos

A high class hotel just in the books. It is one more hotel that tries to get advantage of the tourists and offer less than average services. the hotel is very old and the prices they charge during August high enough to drive you crazy. the breakfast was basic and i really was disappointed to see it. The personnel though was friendly that in a way balanced it out. Do not get me wrong, It is an expensive hotel and someone waits relevant services. unfortunately as they know that due to the island people will be coming either way they don't care to upgrade the facilities offered.
the internet services are pathetic as well but again who goes to Santorini for surfing on the net? Anyway, the island is full of hotels, rooms etc. and I'd suggest you to look around. I had to stay in Fira due to business but I'd try Oia as an alternative.
If you come from USA check with a travel agent and book a package that includes everything. In Cyclades, apart from Mykonos it will be hard to locate a 5-star hotel..maybe impossible..but again it's not this what brings you here..;)

Unique Qualities: Apart from the big pool nothing special to mention. the view is not as good and you might even get a room underground!
