If you plan to visit Santorini on your next trip, you should search for some good family hotels in Santorini before the trip. There are many options for you to consider, but, you need to book in advance to avoid losing the good one.
In order to easy for you, I temporarily divide Santorini into 2 parts with the village (town) areas and the beach areas. Therein, the villages include Fira, Oia, Firostefani, Imerovigli and the beach area include Kamari, Perissa, and Perivolos.
