No review can express the experience of staying at the Tamarix Del Mar, It has been a totally amazing experience from the location, surroundings, quality and attention to detail.
This is a small cul de sac of traditional replica santorini homes split up into 25 high class apartments, some which have their own Jacuzzi, We had a ground floor Junior Suite for 2 and was massive with large bed/sleeping area, large bathroom with Jacuzzi bath and large seating area with TV, DVD, air con etc.

Lots of extras in the room which gives it a touch of class.
The pool and spa are 1st class also, you may not want to use the spa as its inside, but I recommend a go in the Jacuzzi, its very cooling when the temperatures are soaring.

Breakfast was more than we expected with plenty of choice and served between 8 and 11am, you could also have this delivered to your room for no extra cost.

The staff, well not one fault, Demi, George, Dora and Georgina just to name a few, nothing was ever a problem and they went out of their way to ensure our stay was not only memorable but as relaxed as it could be, they are all a credit to the Tamarix.

Only 15 mins (max) from the airport, dont let this put you off as few flights daily and your not on the direct flight path.

5 mins from the seafront and all the shops and restaurants - its all just perfect

Room Tip: We had room 106 and was amazing but all rooms are of the same standard

Due to a booking mix-up with our trip, we needed a place to stay for an extra night on Santorini at the start of the trip. We really loved this gem of a hotel.

Upon arriving early, we were invited to take advantage of the breakfast while our room was being readied. Everything was delicious. The room more than exceeded our expectations. A large open suite with a second bed in the loft, a kitchenette, a generously sized bathroom, a balcony off the main room and a SECOND balcony with a HOT TUB off the loft. I even fell asleep for a moment in the Hot Tub.

The common areas are all extremely clean and modern. The manager said that they do remodeling every year after the end of the season.

The hotel is located a couple of blocks from the waterfront and is very convenient, yet surprising quiet. The staff was more than accommodating for all requests.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone that wants a nice hotel with an intimate B&B feel. A true pleasure.

Every hotel could learn a valuable lesson from Tamarix del Mar in terms of service. My partner and I stayed there last September and it was one of our most memorable holidays to date. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We were delighted to be upgraded upon our arrival. Our room was very clean and spacious and had a jacuzzi on the terrace. Breakfast was one of the best we have ever had with a great selection of hot and cold buffet food. The coffee was delicious and the staff were so friendly. One day when it was very windy my sundress, which was drying on the terrace, blew off and landed on the ground below. The staff very kindly retrieved it, arranged for it to be cleaned and delivered it back to my room. Amazing service! The location of the hotel is perfect, only a five minute walk to the beach. Later in the week we were offered another upgrade to a sister hotel in Imerovigli. We gladly accepted and were blown away by the Absolute Bliss hotel. The staff at Tamarix made everything so easy by arranging not only our transfer to the sister hotel but also our transfer from there to the airport on the day we departed. They also provided us with a lovely bottle of wine when we we were leaving Tamarix and arranged for after sun which we had left behind us to be delivered to our new hotel room. Incredible! Breakfast at Absolute Bliss, which was out of this world, was served to us on our terrace every morning with an amazing sea view. The sunsets in the evening drinking wine on the terrace were also breathtaking. We ate in Ochre in Oia one night and would highly recommend it for a romantic dinner watching the sunset. Our hotel kindly booked it for us in advance as it gets very busy. We also had a lovely meal at Anestis in Imerovigli. More casual, very reasonable and good food. I would really recommend snorkelling in Kamari, as the water is so clear, and a trek up the mountain to watch the sunset. You can never get enough of them! The weather while we were there, 10th - 17th September, was very hot and sunny. If you are going on a package holiday it could be a good idea to arrive a bit earlier at the airport on departure day to beat the crowds from the coaches. I will never forget our very special stay in Kamari and Imerovigli and cannot recommend the staff from Tamarix del Mar and Absolute Bliss enough.

We spent 3 nights at Tamarix Del Mar Suites. From the time we arrived to the time that we left we felt welcomed, attended to and like we were on vacation. The staff is pleasant and at your beckon call. The property is cozy, the rooms are well appointed and spacious. The location was perfect, less than 5 minutes to the beach where there's plenty of restaurants and a 15 minute ride to Fira.

We travelled the entire island and everyone in our group agreed we made the best decision regarding where to stay and location.

Not sure when I'll get back to Santorini, but if I do, Tamarix will be on my short list of where to stay.

Stayed with my Mum for a week, this place is a charming small establishment with friendly staff and a lovely pool area. From the hotel we were able to explore and enjoy the island whilst being slightly tucked away from the main tourist areas allowing us to retreat to this little haven to enjoy some down time after exploring the attractions.

Breakfast was delicious and is served until 11am which allows for lovely lazy mornings!

Enjoyed a lovely large room with a mezzanine floor and 2 double beds as well as a kitchenette and a roof terrace through a little door in the roof out to a hot tub.

We stayed at the Tamarix for 3 nights. Not sure if it was the beauty of the island or the hotel, but our stay at Tamarix was spectacular.

LOCATION : (5*) The hotel is ideally located in Kamari Beach. The place is only 5 minutes from the beach and a long stretch of restaurants and shops. A bus stop is only a 3 minute walk which will take you to the rest of the island.

SERVICE : (5+*)Some of the best service that we have experienced. The first night we arrived, the hotel was hosting a Greek night. Georgia was awesome. She made sure that everything was taken care of during our stay.

BREAKFAST : (5*) Variety was superb. The quality was also excellent.

FACILITIES : (4.5*) The only issue we had with the hotel was the bathroom. Small complaint but there was no fixed showerhead which we are used to but seems to be a common thing in the Greek isles. Otherwise, the rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. There is a jacuzzi on the patio which is a nice touch.

VALUE : (5*) The hotel is an excellent value
