“Exceeded our expectations”
Reviewed 5 November 2011

Stayed here in late August with my wife and our 3-year-old son and we really enjoyed the hotel (actually surprised it wasn't ranked higher for Perissa Beach hotels). We had one of the rooms with a loft which had two additional twin beds above the main room, but never used them as we didn't want the little one up there all by himself. The bathroom was on the small side, but the rest of the room was pretty good size and there was a small fridge to keep drinks cold that we bought from the store. We had a great balcony overlooking the pool, the bar, and part of the beach and it was nice having a glass of wine out on the balcony at the end of the day.
We never ate at the restaurant aside from breakfast since the TA reviews of the place were pretty bad. Breakfast was mediocre and had a limited selection but it was included in the room rate and has a good view of the beach. There's a small shop outside the hotel for beach items and tourist souvenirs (can also get beer, wine, & juice, etc there). We rented a car for a day through the hotel's front desk and paid around 40 EUR for unlimited mileage. A guy came to fill out the paperwork and drop the car off and then we left the keys at the front desk when we were done, so pretty convenient.
Couple things that bothered me about the place, although fairly minor...... It's completely ridiculous that they charge guests for the use of chairs on the beach! Can't remember what the charge was (either 6 EUR or 8 EUR each), but was totally shocked when someone from the front desk was walking around the beach with a wallet, collecting money. The staff on the whole was not overly friendly or nice (didn't offer to hep bring bags up to our room which was far from the front desk).
The pool is freezing cold (like every other pool we had in Greece!), but we enjoyed it and was nice that the bar's wireless connection worked everywhere around the pool. There's not a ton of chairs, but we never had a problem finding a place to sit. The beach is fun, but the sand gets extremely hot, so I highly recommend flip flops and water socks for kids. Loved all the little restaurants and cafes that are located within walking distance (best dinner was at Nto Matini, best lunch was at Tranquilo. Don't miss either of them!!)
Loved staying on Perissa beach, and enjoyed Veggera. Will likely stay again if we go back to Santorini.

Be warned that Perissa is far from Thira/Fira (30 mins) and Oia (45 mins). To that advantage, things are less expensive around Perissa so that is the trade off. The hotel is beachfront which was handy and they also had two nice pools. We had high hopes when we saw the hotel from our taxi. It's not that our room was terrible, it was alright. It just doesn't match up with the new, luxurious feel from the exterior.

The beds were a bit small and uncomfortable, my friend is a slim, 5'9" girl who just fit their "twin bed". Luckily another friend and I are petite girls so we shared the double bed without space issue. The sheets were starchy to the point they felt like printer paper, the crispy sounds woke me up when my friends tossed and turned. Our bigger problem was the lack of any type of barrier for the shower. Water was all over the bathroom anytime someone showered. And the water is salty so brushing our teeth was like rinsing with ocean water. Weird.

On the plus side, we had a small outdoor area/patio, even though we were staying in a basement level room. It helps that the patio was poolside. The bathroom is also supplied with Dove liquid soap so it was a nice change from bar soap. We booked with the breakfast option, which turned out to be a buffet at their neighboring restaurant. It was alright actually - eggs, bacon/sausage, warm crossaints, cold cereal, yogurt, fruits, spreads, breads, cakes, and juices. Nothing extraordinary, but it was enough to choose from. The afternoon receptionist (Larissa?) was really nice even though she said she was new to reception.

we booked a twin room with view, offered a double room when we arrived, said no to that, then offered another double, finally got a twin but in the basement with no view, not at all helpful in reception.
food on half board very boring and bland, so had to eat out most of the time- shame as it is a very lovely looking hotel and the staff were lovely
would not go back unless a guarantee of better room was made

Room Tip: insist on room above ground floor

We are glad we booked Hotel Veggera which is situated at the Perissa Beach, though it might be a bit far from the town, but then holidays are meant to be peaceful & not in the middle of a huzzle-buzzle of city. The hotel has the most amazing pool view and the beach to view from the balcony. It has beautiful, very thoughtfully set up beds if you book a duplex in it. Kids had two separate beds up the stairs and instead of a sofa they have put up a huge settie where one could easily use it as a bed. Each room decor is white and blue keeping in view of the norm used in entire Santorini. The whole beach street is full of bars and restaurants with free wifi, one could sit for hours there. Souvenir, jewellery, clothes shops in plenty and a grocery shop right next to the hotel which is open till midnight. The street closes from 5.00 pm to 5.00am for cars and heavy vehicles to facilitate tourists to go for their evening walks. The hotel has free sunbeds for the guests. For the restaurant is outside of the hotel so that they can attract other tourists with their greek cuisine. Food is excellent with five course food menu for the hote guests. Very clean hotel, daily room is cleaned and towels changed. Highly recommended hotel.

Room Tip: Top floor pool facing rooms will ensure a view of the sea as bonus.

When we arrived we were told that they were overbooked and they were moving us to their sister resort on the caldera for part of our 3 night stay. We were very skeptical! But the resort was more than we could have imagined! I was tempted to rate the veggara higher for this reason alone, but I thought that wouldn't be fair for those who don't get moved. This hotel has a great location and a great pool! The room we had was small and the a/c only worked when we were in the room and it never cooled off the room. But we were only here for 1 night and the earlier upgrade and the location made it an enjoyable stay for us.

We stayed in Veggera for a week. The room was as advertised, clean and kept clean daily. We paid for a half board, which comes with a significantly reduced menu choices. After a week, we had had some items from the menu twice and we were running out of option. Would recommend breakfast only and taking your meals at plentiful restaurant options in Perissa withing a short walking distance. The reception staff was very helpful in identifying various pieces of information typically missing from tourist pamphlets, like things to watch out for. Nice beach, but the sand ends at the water edge and to continue, you have to watch out for slippery rocks. Did not try the pool, but it looked good.

Room Tip: If yo want the views, go see the room first. Some rooms are in a half basement under the stairs.
