Like so many others, we chose Anastasis Apartments for a 5 night stay in Santorini because of the rave reviews on TA. We were expecting something pretty special and our expectations were more than met. Again in line with most reviewers, while the views (esp. the sunsets), the pool, the rooms (we stayed in a superior apartment), the spa and the overall ambience are all perfection, it is the care & attention that you receive from Despina, Katerina, Helen and the boys that sets this place apart.
We did the walk to Fira and back on a couple of occasions (around 45 minutes each way), and the rest of the time we used the reliable bus service.
Katerina's suggestions for places to eat were all spot on, and if you happened to mention that you had chosen the restaurant on a recommendation from Anastasis, you would find that extra dishes or a round of Vinsanto were provided at no additional charge. Our favourite places to eat were Castro (in Oia), Tasos Tavern (a 2 minute walk up the road) and I can't recall the name of the place in Fira, but host Raymond made us feel very special.
Anyway, you get the drift: if you're going to Santorini, Anastasis should be your first choice. It is clearly the best place that I've ever stayed anywhere in the world. My wife and I can't wait to come back - it truly is a special experience.
