Have just returned from a week at the Kamari Beach Hotel. I have to say that Santorini is a stunning destination albeit an expensive one.( 1 large beer and a vodka and lemonade 10.00 euros). Although meals were much more reasonable and the local wine cheap and very good.
When eating in kamari the eateries off the promenade offer much better value and I can highly recommend The Byzantia .
On arrival at the hotel were dumped off the coach on a road behind the hotel with a wave of a very disinterested hand from our tour company rep ( Thomsons) saying it was "down there" .Two couples actually went into the wrong hotel as there was no clear signage .
We checked in at reception and were given our room key ( No. 26) and went to fin our room.
We found what I can only describe as a dingy semi basement room with virtually no natural light, a bed about 8 inches off the floor, faded bed linen and ripped upholstery .
Whilst I realise we had booked a 3 star hotel this room was only worthy of 2 stars at a push. I returned to reception along with another couple and was shown a marvelous room overlooking the pool and beach which we took at a cost of £140.00 euros for the week.
My point is that most of the information available about this hotel(including our tour operator) talks about rooms refurbished in 2007. This is not the case. the second room had been and was of a good standard but not the first.
So beware when you are booking you need to ask for a sea view, these are the refurbished rooms but will cost you a premium.
