“Disappointing”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

First, when we arrived, we were told there were no rooms - even though we booked with a renowned German tour operator. We were offered a three-star alternative hotel, which was even farther from the beach, so we insisted we wanted to stay at Rose Bay, as booked. Finally, we were given what was probably the worst room in the hotel - not part of the main building, but in a bungalow in the backyard - no privacy on the "terrace" we had, plus the room was very small and as the weather was very windy, there was a constant draught in the room.
Oh and you will have aircraft landing over your head all the time.
The biggest disappointment however was the breakfast. Poor choice and very little - it took them ages to replenish the buffet. Never again!

Room Tip: ask for a room in the main house - with a balcony to have some privacy.

A lovely clean well run hotel situated in the small village of Kamari. The beach is a few steps away and although its a black beach the restaurants offer free sun beds in their area of beach as long as you buy a drink or lunch. They wait on you and are friendly and very attentive. Back to the hotel it is clean and we had one of the apartments behind the main pool area which was lovely. On arrival we were a little disappointed to be told we did not have a pool view but once inside our apartment we were thrilled..it was very big and had 2 double beds, dressing table, mirror above, tv and bathroom. The pool is great and a lovely area to relax with a small bar to one side. The barman looked after the men while us girls were getting ready! The breakfast was basic but ample, with plenty of choice and there are tables outside if you prefer. A quiet and very welcoming hotel which we would return to. Numerous places to eat and drink along the beach. While you in Santorini you must visit Oia.....it's beautiful.

Stayed here as part of a tour in June. Hotel very comfortable with lovely balconies , air conditioning worked well, food very good. Close to the airport with some aircraft noise during the day. Close to the beach and lots of restaurants and shops. The staff were very pleasant.

Room Tip: Stayed twice, both rooms very good. Lifts available to upper floor.

Stayed at the rose bay in October for two weeks with my wife and two children aged one and three. The hotel itself is really clean and the staff are really friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. It is in a great location with loads of great restaurants nearby. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. If you do hire a car (which I would suggest as there is so much to see around this beautiful island) I would strongly recommend Senor zorbas Mexican restaurant. It was the best meal we had during the holiday and the location was amazing with a fantastic sunset.

I found this hotel nice and clean/comfortable. The down side for me was the waiting staff in the restaurant during buffet periods.
I found one member of staff quite rude and surly, also found you had to watch your money if buying drinks (check to change}
The waiting staff seemed very clicky and would be friendly to some and not others.

Apart from that quite a nice place , the cleaners did a fantastic job!

We came in october, the weather was good, the hotel empty, and we got a very nice studio like room in the recently constructed wing of the complex: a sweet setting for a romantic getaway!
Friendly staff, nice room, great pool, awesome kittens everywhere (so cute and fluffy). The hotel looks great and is really close to kamari beach.
It's really close to the airport (noisy) but at the end of the season it really wasn't that bothering (3 flights a day).
We strongly recommend it!

Stayed at the Rose Bay as part of an organised trip. Excellent hotel friendly staff. Very Clean with good quality hot and cold breakfast, buffet style food at other times with the option to purchase snacks from the pool bar. Lovely pool, small gym and a minute or so walk to the beach.
Room overlooked the pool area and was spacious with traditional marble floors. Air conditioning, safe key and fridge were included. There is a small supermarket next door to purchase water and any other essentials. Good choice of restaurants within a couple of minutes walk if you do not want to stay in the hotel. The local bus stops within a 5 minute walk of the hotel with a connection to Fira. Cars can be hired via the hotel or from the car hire agency just around the corner. You can also book trips from hotel reception which we found to be cheaper than other sources. Would certainly return

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool on the first floor, although some of the back room are larger an...
