Best hotel in Santorini in December for sunset view? Must sees for a 24 hr island visit?

My husband and I will be in Santorini for one night in December. I am looking for recommendations for hotels with the best sunset view for that time of year? Also, as we will be on the island for a little over 24 hrs, what are some must see/do items that we should include on our itinerary?

The Santorini Palace has wonderful sunset views.

The best overall sunset/caldera views are from the cliffs in Imerovigli but most hotels will be closed then. When you ask for hotel recommendations but don't tell us your maximum daily budget we can't effectively help you. Use the filter system at to see what will be available to you on your travel date within your budget parameters. Don't be surprised if you can't see a sunset in December. The chances of clouds, rain and overcast skies are very good. If that's the case indoor activities are your best option. Check the Museum of Prehistoric Thera and the archaeological site of Akrotiri, which is under a protective roof covering.

We stayed in a lovely hotel right above the Caldera in the town of Fira/Thira
Theoxenia Hotel

We had a large balcony/patio that had tables and chairs.
We sat there every evening watching the sunset.
They provided a lovely breakfast delivered to our patio each morning
at the times we requested.

Hope this hotel is open in December - since it is in the main town on the main street,
I think it may be.
Best of luck.

I just clicked on the link, and their webpage says they are open all year.

We stayed at 'Apartments Gaby' in September a few years ago & witnessed amazing sunsets right from our window!

Our small apartment was very reasonable, clean & comfortable.
The owner, Katerina, was very nice & helpful.
I don't know if they are open in December due to weather, etc...

Here is the link:

Enjoy your trip!
