My friends got married in Santorini and they booked this hotel for me. Its so nice and cozy! Ive visited the hotel in June 2016 and it was surprisingly empty and quiet! The room was big (for one person!) and good! Breakfast was delicious! Pool area is just relaxing and good (no screaming kids or drunk people!)

The staff in this family run hotel were absolutely exceptional throughout our stay and went out of their way to help us. Location is perfect and excellent for the seafront in Kamari. Spacious room with plenty of storage space and great pool area.

The rooms are basic too but remember what you pay for. Had an issue with the aircon but fixed it quickly. Lovely Greek people and family... More

Friendly staff, nice pool, ok room and facilities - pretty bad breakfast buffet without much fresh - ex: tinned peaches !!!! Reasonably well placed so not too noisy and air con in the rooms is a must ! Biggest plus is the staff who are friendly and it's well kept/ clean
