Santorini is flush with places to stay. Many look similar and indeed many are similar. Kamares has the trademark look of white cliffside accommodation with blue woodwork that you will see everywhere. Kamares has the lovely views that many have and the clean and comfortable rooms too. So what made the difference? What made it special? Well quite simply it is the staff who exude a genuine warmth and desire to ensure you stay meets your expectation. Viya on reception could not be more helpful, cheerful and knowledgeable about how your time there could be well spent. Through no fault of the hotel there was a minor issue with rooms yet they were so concerned that our expectation on arrival had not been met that they arranged a day yacht cruise for us by way of an (unneeded) apology.
The outdoor jacuzzi's are delightful to soak in and watch the sunset. In an ideal world the terraces would be a bit more private but with only 6 rooms, you don't have many people coming and going.
Breakfast is served on your terrace in the morning - boiled eggs, greek yoghurt, toasted ham and cheese sandwich, juice, coffee. It's the same each day.
Location is great. You are a very short walk from Fira centre and there is a Carrefour supermarket two minutes from the apartments.
I would recommend renting a car, moped or ATV to get around and see the island, though local buses are plentiful.
Santorini is picture postcard beautiful. The beaches are really nothing to write home about - mostly volcanic shingle. that said, the better ones have plenty of sun loungers and bars/restaurants.
The outdoor cinema is worth a visit and if you want good local food in Fira along with good service then go to Mama's. It's a short walk from Kamares apartments.
In summary; Stunning Santorini and caring Kamares made this a dream trip for us and we would return without hesitation.
