Santorini Hotels – What Makes Them Special?

Santorini is one of the premier tourist destinations from the vast selection of islands situated off the coast of Greece. Santorini is part of the Cyclades chain of islands and is situated midway between Greece and Turkey making it a somewhat multicultural centre although with a predominantly Greek population.
The island is not particularly large with a total area of just ninety six square kilometers but the villages on the island are particularly picturesque as they are constructed from stone painted white with the windows painted blue. This matches the up to three hundred meter high cliffs that are an integral part of the islands landscape and form a stunning visual for tourists as they arrive on the island.
As a result of this, Santorini hotels already have a unique selling point just from the variety of different stunning locations they are developed on. Many Santorini hotels are purpose built on the edge of the islands many cliffs to provide visitors with a fabulous perspective of the natural beauty of the ocean and world famous views of the sunset almost from a bird’s eye perspective. These fantastic locations are not all overpriced either.

In fact not all hotel style accommodation on the island is actually called a hotel as the traditional Greek tradition is to offer room to let rather than classifying itself as a Santorini hotel. A room to let is in effect a hotel room although most are self catering which is not an issue given the wide range of restaurants providing delicious locally caught and grown produce for, in most cases, quite inexpensive prices.
