The upper horizontal black menu bar is the one with the user tools. From there you can change language, login or register in order to gain access to our features for registered users. In addition, there are also the links for free business listing, create photo album, add event and add offer. The latter two are available only to the users that have bought the Featured ad package. The creation of photo album is available to all registered users.
On the upper right side you may find the links to the main categories of the business catalog and also the link “About Santorini” in which you can locate generic and useful information about the island. Right beneath these links the “Search” functionality is located, where you can type any word or phrase and display the relevant sorted results. In case there’s a typo in your keyword or phrase, the application will display the keyword or phrase you probably meant to insert. Every result displayed is followed by the timestamp of its last update, the sum of comments made to it and relevant attachments (if any). Your searches can be performed for all pages (articles & catalog) or separately for the business catalog or the articles alone. The results to be displayed can refer to the content, the locations or the users.
On the home page, there is also the weather functionality, referring to the current weather on Santorini (Celsium degrees, humidity, winds)
Up on the left you will find the booking functionality. You can choose to insert the arrival / departure dates and the desired area. By doing so, you will get instantly informed on the availability, the accommodation features and the prices, according to your search criteria from booking.com, one of the most well-known and valid network for hotel reservations worldwide. Alternatively, you can insert no data in the fields and click “search” in a blank form so the application will display the total amount of the available accommodation. Santorini-net.com(link) chose booking.com as its partner for the accommodation reservations aiming to satisfy in full the needs of its customers. Booking.com, for many years now, is a network of thousands of hotels with a wide variety of prices.
