HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST HOTEL OR RESTAURANT IN SANTORINI
The choice of the hotel for your stay or even the choice of the restaurant to have dinner in really makes a difference when you’re on holiday – it can either make or break your whole trip! That is why it is very important to choose wisely, and today I want to share some of my own tips on how to spot the best hotels and restaurants in Santorini.
First of all, looking at the websites of the hotels or restaurants could serve as a good starting point, but you search should never end there! Of course every hotel will do everything possible to have only positive comments and descriptions on their website, which is why it is much wiser to turn to independent sources to get some real reviews from peer travelers.
This is where peer review travel websites come in handy. I am not original in thinking that one of the best out there is TripAdvisor. Santorini is a small place, but you can find thousands of reviews about the local bars, cafes, restaurants and hotels on there. This is information travelers give to other travelers, that is why it is much more reliable than just looking at the hotel/restaurant web page.
Of course this is not the only site. If you do not want to install any additional apps on your phone, I must say that even Facebook is a very good place to find out more about the restaurant. Just find out if it has an official Facebook page and have a look at their review section :).
In short – have a real look online before making a booking. The extra ten minutes will really make a difference in the quality of your stay here in Santorini or in any other place for that matter.
