Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Kevin H wrote a review Oct 2023
Chelmsford, United Kingdom6 contributions1 helpful vote
I have stayed at the three times, twce before the pandemic. I am so glad to see the hotel has not only survived the uncertain times but has kept everything that made this one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The hotel is in a great location near to the beach at Kamari which has a lovely beach and plenty of bars and tavernas. All of which are pefect to go to whether you are looking for a quiet night, a greek night, or more a music venue. Whilst near to the beach the hotel is located in a quiet street just behind and therefore more relaxing when by the pool, in the bar, or a private jacuzzi (we had one on the roof with great views. The rooms are clean and changed everyday (if you want). They are spacious and as I said we were lucky enough to have a jacuzzi on the roof. Most importantly the staff are great, friendly and certainly can't do enough for you. This includes the reception, the bar, and even the housekeepers. Whilst going to Santorini, I would say spend one night in Oia for the sunset (the crowds and expense), but every other day I strongly recommend the Blue Wave hotel, it really is that good. On one other point, I would strongly recommend the Captain's Table taverna across the street. The food is incredible, at an extremely good price, and the hospitality is the best I have had in Greece.

I can't rate the service for this hotel any higher. The booking process was so easy, Ioannis answered all of my questions in a timely manner. The girls at reception were so warm and welcoming, constantly checking in on my sister who ended up getting quite sick not long after arrival. Vanna at the breakfast/pool bar was one of the sweetest people I met whilst in Greece. On that subject the breakfast at the hotel was amazing. For 10 euro you will not be disappointed with the amount of food and beverage you get! I stayed in the private pool suite and it did not disappoint. Sunrise views were spectacular. Pool was huge, the room itself was so spacious. Highly recommend 👌🏽

We are a family of 5 with young teenagers, and stayed for 3 nights at this beautiful little hotel. Such a warm reception when we arrived, with a room upgrade for the first night. We were further welcomed with drinks at the pool by Ivana, with lots of local information given to us. The beds are very comfortable, the place has a friendly, laid-back atmosphere, and the staff are efficient and helpful. Breakfasts were amazing every morning. Can highly recommend this little gem of a hotel.

Great time, staff were lovely. We can be a little high maintence, but the staff filled our every request with fantastic speed. The location is perfect and in the middle of everything. The young lady with the brown hair at reception was the sweetest. The manager/owner came by several times to check on our stay and was really helpful. We really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you and we will recommend this accommodation to our friends.

My wife and I recently had a great experience at this hotel. The staff was always super friendly and ready to help us with anything. The location is perfect and with our honeymoon suite with a rooftop jacuzzi, we felt we had one of the best views in the entire area! Highly recommend this hotel for their fair prices, excellent service, and high-quality food. We would love to visit and stay here again!

Me and my wife along with our 5 year old daughter stayed at the Blue Waves Hotel for my sister in law’s wedding. The first thing I want to tell you is that all the staff in the hotel are so welcoming and can’t do enough for you, it feels like you’re part of a little family. A special mention to Marcos behind the bar he’s such a nice guy and was brilliant with our daughter. Our room was nice and cleaned daily but a little bit more space would’ve made it even better, it had a view out over the pool and the sea which was lovely first thing on a morning whilst having breakfast on our balcony a few times. The breakfast and lunch menu from the pool bar are very good and we enjoyed both on several occasions. The pool area is lovely with a shallow end for younger kids that slopes down to a deeper end for us big kids! The Sunbed’s are very comfy too. I would definitely recommend this hotel to people and would love to return one day😎
