We stayed four nights at Aria Suites, the second week of October. It's slowing down in Santorini so the place wasn't full (or didn't feel full, anyway). The hotels is a little off the main drag - which is good - but still is convenient to everything (although a little hard to find without GoogleMaps). We stayed in Rigoletto (lots of room, like a one-bedroom apt), which has the best harbor view of any of the suites (two balconies!). Service was just outstanding. Claudio gets special mention, as he made our check-in smooth, explained the whole thing to us (ordering the next day's breakfast every night, how to find the trail to Oia, where to get towels for the beach etc. etc. everything), and gave us some really good restaurant recommendations. Claudio has the skill set to step up as concierge at a Ritz Carlton, no problem. Anyway, the hotel is fantastic; the only thing that wasn't right was that we came up short with hot water in the shower one night. There are a zillion places like this in Fira, but there is no need to look at any of the others. This one has all the right attributes: location, facility, and staff. Definitely a stay-again if I come back to Santorini. Oh yeah - and you get sunset over the ocean, not over the volcano. Extra points for location.
