Santorini, Greece: Holiday review

  • Santorini Late August Early September

    Weather

    The weather was the best thing about our holiday this year. High 20's to mid 30's every day.
    A high factor sun cream is essential.

    Holiday

    Our holiday was a real disappointment, we have been to Crete for the last 2 years and thought we would be slightly diffrent this year WHAT A MISTAKE.
    Our accomodation was very very basic and a 2k walk from Perissa so every evening was a hike to get to the Taverna's.
    The Taverna's are a very mixed bag some are excellent (God's garden highly recommended) others ranged from acceptable to awful.
    We took one of the boat trips to the volcano, hot springs and sunset in OIR (prononced EAR), the volcano is worth while take plenty of water it's a bit of a hike but worth it, our boat moared near the hot springs but you had to be a strong swimmer to actually go to the springs, so my girlfriend could go but I could'nt Dissapointing.
    OIR was OK you get dropped in the harbour and have to climb 280 steps or pay 5 euros for the donkey ride up the steps but note they are mental we loved it but the donkeys scared others. The famous Santorini sunset is worth seeing.

  • Santorini late September

    Weather

    We stayed in Santorini during the last week of September and the weather was quite mixed. We had some warm days when the temperature was low-mid 20's and it was sunny enough to lie by the pool but also some slightly cooler & breezier days and a bit of rain. The wind quite often picked up in the evening and it was a little cool so I would recommend taking a jacket at this time of year, we didn't and regretted it! However, it's not a bad time to visit if you don't like excessive heat and want a quiet holiday as most pf the restaurants were fairly empty.

    Holiday

    Very relaxed and chilled out. We spent as much time as weather allowed just reading by the pool. Hired a quad bike one day which was a great way to see the island. Were glad to be staying in a hotel with facilities (the Majestic in Fira) the day it chucked it down with rain as we could at least occupy ourselves with the gym, sauna, spa, internet etc. Food was lovely everywhere and fairly reasonable but drinks quite expensive, especially cocktails in Fira & Oia (you're basically paying extra to have a sunset view).

    Fantastic, not a cloud in sight all week. temperatures in mid 30s.

    Breezes made the temperature bearable.

    Frequent dips in the pool were needed and high factor sun cream is a must.

    Holiday

    Great.
    The most chilled week we could have wished for.
    The resort is really laid back and casual which was perfect. plenty of eating and drinking places.
    The beach is available to all - although sunbeds are charged at approx 7euros per day for 2.
