We stayed here during July 2007 as part of an island hopping trip on the Cycladic island. Santorini is a wonderful island. The Hermes hotel is brilliant. The building looks nice, the room is nice, the pool is nice and the atmosphere here is great. It's a five minute walk to Kamari's lava beach. The boulevard looks really modern. There are some nice restaurants, bars and cafes on it. I can recommend it. I can recommend visiting the Red Beach which is in the south and I can also recommend a tri to the Calder. We also like the walk (4 hours) to Fira which takes you through Firostefani and Imerovigli all the way to Oia. If you leave at around two from Fira you still have time to eat and watch the sunset in Oia before you have to head back.
