Our outbound flight out was rescheduled by 3 hours only they forgot to tell anyone - apart from this the flight itself was fine. The air crew were great and our flight home arrived early! The Olympic reps were all very down to earth and helpful; a welcome change from some of the holiday reps we have encountered.
Our apartment at Sandy Villas in Perissa was fairly basic as is usual in Greece. That said we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay and it was cleaned everyday (except Sunday). The pool area was lovely with plenty of sun beds. The resort, Perissa, was pretty - clean beaches, not overcrowded and comfy sun beds for the price of a couple of beers and a sandwich! The restaurants in the resort served good food at reasonable prices. We tried several and they were all excellent.
Santorini itself was beautiful. The Olympic excursions were a bit overpriced so we booked a volcano/sunset tour with a local company (Ankor) which was great. A visit to Thira is a must and the ruins at ancient Thira are spectacular.
We would recommend a visit.
