A family stay at Porto Castello
The weather was great in Santorini but to top it off everything in Porto Castello was excellent. The staff always likes to help if there's anything and even if they are super overcrowded like now. Their priority are their guests.

A hidden gem in Thira
George & Cindy have great hosting skills, always relaxed and friendly. The shuttle service is free and is a great plus point than wanted me to stay at this place. Had no issues with cleanliness at the hotel. It was a nice relaxed vibe. Loved the balcony and sea view from my room. The sea, and small picturesque harbour is also a minutes walk away. Nice quiet area, not like noisy and busy Thira town.
