Hotel seasons

Predictably, the peak season for hotels on Santorini is July and August, while prices are a bit lower in June and September. The lowest prices at most hotels are April, May, and October, as nearly all hotels close from November through March.

SantoriniSantorini is among the most popular Greek islands, and it’s included here mostly as an example of what to expect from most of the dozens of popular holiday islands in the area. There are only about 15,000 year-round residents yet there are about 800 hotels, almost all of which are only open between April and October. The island has about 15 towns and villages, and hotels are found in various clusters on every corner.

There are ruins and archeological sites dating back many thousands of years, but a huge majority of people come here just to relax in the sun during their summer break. You can rent ATVs and drive around the island if you are in the mood to really take a look around.

Hotels and hostels on Santorini start at very low prices and go way up into the stratosphere from there. In other words, this island, like many other Greek islands, caters to nearly every budget. Those staying on a shoestring will get small rooms with no views and uncomfortable beds, and they’ll be eating gyros or similar foods much of the time. If you want to splurge you can get good value and often great views at the same time.

Local wine and beer tend to be quite cheap on Santorini, especially during the abundant happy hours.

weather advise for AmsterdamWeather advice

Santorini has a warm and very dry summer, and quite a pleasant spring and autumn for those looking for smaller crowds. The winter weather gets a bit wet, but the main challenge is that most hotels and shops are closed anyway.
