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.
