Can I convince you not to go to Santorini and choose a different island or am I wasting my breath?

Almost all hotel rooms are relatively small, extremely overcrowded in the summer, ridiculously overpriced, and the sunset is just as beautiful from other islands.... Basically just a large tourist trap.

Understand your thoughts - yes it is overpriced! but Vedema rooms are large( to match the price?)-yes the island is overcrowded though Vedema is out of the way of the throngs of tourist-I would not go back as Vedema is not on the beach , they do run a hotel shuttle -but if it was my honeymoon-I would go almost anyplace that "we" wanted to go to-- i would not try to do a work around on my honeymoon as this is not the time to not have things work out as planned - pay the price or find another place

You could spend two nights in Santorini just so you've been there and then a week somewhere like Rhodes for the same price. Most of the islands are equally stunning.

You can do a daytrip to Santorini if you just want to "be there".

Points taken - what other island would you recommend?

2 days in mykonos?

We are both medical residents so only have 7 days - landing in athens on Monday at 10 AM- planning to spend the day sightseeing there and staying at the intercon vs the new hotel (spg).  Then flying to santorini for 2-4 days - then I guess one more island if we choose the 2 day point - and then back to the states on Sunday.

Thanks, all view points encouraged, and we are not set on anything.

intercon is out of the way --it is wrong hotel for sightseeing --especially if have only one day -Hilton best that may fit your budget
