We stayed at 'The Best' whilst in Perissa, Santorini getting married. Along with about 40 friends and family, adults and children, we couldn't have wished for a better place to stay. The pool area is suitable for both children and adults alike, and offers a chilled out relaxed atmosphere. The location is perfect, a 2 minute walk from the beach... More

I was in Perissa to celebrate a wedding and many of the guests stayed at The Best. Vassili and Marylin could not have been more helpful and welcoming. They did everything possible to ensure that we all had a wonderful holiday.

This hotel had everything we needed for our short stay in Santorini. The room was comfortable with a nice balcony. It is close to the beach, the bus stop, and a 24 hour restaurant. The owners were helpful with securing taxis and answering all of our questions. I would definitely stay here again.
