Ranked #9 of 75 Hotels in Kamari
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 July 2014

We stayed at Tamarix Del Mar in late June which was a surprise 15th Wedding Anniversary for my good lady! I cannot add much more than has already been described by previous guests here on Tripadvisor. In short the hotel is wonderful, staff are fabulous, rooms are stunning, the setting superb and overlooks the high peak on which the ruins of Ancient Thira are located. We are in awe of Tamarix and were very sad to leave! A big thank you Demi, Georgi, George and the rest the team at the hotel and we will return soon.

Just a point to note though re the airport. Yes, it is small and very crowded especially on a Tuesday so you need to be prepared to expect delays and long queues. I just hope they don't expand the terminal as it will encourage a far greater number of people to flock to this beautiful island and potentially ruin the special ambiance Santorini has to offer.

From the first email contact until the moment we said good-bye they could not do enough to make our stay perfect. They sent encouraging notes looking forward to our visit, picked us up at the airport, showed us around our suites, and offered anything they could to keep us comfortable. The accommodations are not given their due from the website. The appointments in the suites are beautiful, plentiful, and make you feel you live in your own universe. The staff from the bar, cleaning staff (which is constant), and front desk, actually do so much to keep you happy, I told my family to use the side entrance I found so they would not run so quickly to open the doors, carry your packages, greet you, hand you towels etc. They were spoiling us so much I didn't want to take advantage of their hospitality. They kept such a close but discrete watch over the complex, that I could ask anyone if they have seen my family, and because I had four teenage recent grads, they could always tell me where to find them in town. They are that caring about their guests. The location is perfect for a family, the beach, the boardwalk and the archaeological site are all here. We rented a car to take our large group to Oia and Fira to explore, but the intensity of people, huge crowds, and lack of easy access to walk the beach, made our group decide to turn it in early and go back to the comfort of "home" where we could visit the local shop keepers, eat without crazy crowds and sit on the beach easily. Something has changed in Greece and it is the tourist industry. During our two weeks traveling throughout the country, we did not meet one person who did not appear sincerely happy to have us as a guest. This attitude will make people continue to come to this beautiful land and the change has been noted. This was our sixth time coming and one of our party was a native of Greece, he even took note. Tamarix was our favorite part of the trip. Our family did not want to leave and wished to cancel our visit to the next island and extend our stay at the Tamarix however, to our disappointment, our next hotel would not refund our money. Even after we left for the ferry, and just before boarding, they were still taking care of us. We noticed we had left behind three luggage's, called them, and in an instant they dispatched a taxi to bring them to the dock, they did not even charge us. We will definitely return and stay here, it will be like coming home. I wouldn't change a thing.

Just back from a week at Kalmarix del Mar Suites where we stayed with friends & family for our son's wedding in Santorini. Everything was perfect and we would definitely recommend the hotel and their exceptionally helpful staff. Very high standards - cleanliness and fantastic fresh breakfast. Only thing that could be improved is the air conditioning system and no need to upgrade to superior suites.

Room Tip: All rooms very high standard and check for unnecessary room supplements.

Wow, what can we say about Tamarix? We stayed here for a week in May and it was fantastic. The hotel is like a little oasis of calm, luxury & relaxation. Everything about Tamarix was perfect. We stayed in room 207 which had a mezzanine level with a further 2 beds which led out on to a roof top terrace with out own private hot tub! As we made friends with lots of people staying here we had a chance to see some of the other rooms and they were all of the same fantastic standard & the staff worked so hard to keep them this way too. All rooms cleaned everyday with fresh towels etc provided.

From the moment we walked into reception the staff were all so welcoming and did everything they could to make our stay special. George, Dora, Georgia & Demi were fantastic, the Tamarix team isnt a big team but it certainly works very well together.

Breakfast was fantastic everyday and we ate lunch here most days and the food was as good as we ate anywhere else on the island. The hotel team held a Greek night on the Friday night with drinks and Greek food served all night which was super and they treated us to some Greek dancing & even got a few of us to join in (thank you Georgia for your excellant teaching!)

We really didn't want to leave and Yes, we will be back. The location of this hotel & its wonderful staff make this a perfect place to visit & explore Santorini.

Room Tip: All rooms are fantastic, but I did like our little bit of extra luxuary x

We stayed at this hotel during our wedding and honeymoon (we got married at Santo Winery and had a reception at Atmosphere). I have to say this is a fantastic hotel, the service is the best I have experienced, you feel like part of the family when you stay. The reception and bar staff make you feel so welcome and they can't do enough for you (they are massively offended if you try and help). When we stayed there were at least 2 other couples that were getting married but they made us feel so special (as I am sure they did everyone).
I asked for a full length mirror as there wasn't one in my room, they had one found quickly, they also hung my dress and bridesmaid dress up in the room when they were returned from being Steamed as I was out with the family - nothing was too much trouble. My family were staying in several hotels in Kamari, always popping in to meet us for a meal or drink and they made everyone feel so welcome. I won't spoil the surprises but they really did make our wedding day and honeymoon special...we definitely will be returning for an anniversary! I would also recommend the hotel bar food (really tasty) and the drinks are cheaper then any where else we went!

WOW, was the first impression we both had when we walked in to this lovely little hotel. Everyone is so nice, and friendly. As said in the last few posts, everything here is wonderful. we didn't want to leave either.

staff are lovely, nothing is to much trouble. Demi, George, Georgia, and little Dora. you are all fab.
we stayed in room 104, approx. 2 metres from the pool, so not to long a stroll!!. room was beautiful, lovely little kitchenette, inc fridge/freezer, kettle, pots, pans and cutlery. you do not need to take an iron as there is a little board and iron in the room. no need for a hair dryer, as its built into the bathroom. slippers and bathrobes, and lots of toiletries. Pool and beach towels provided, and plenty to go round. even little baseball caps!! Drinks and food served in your room/balcony/pool side at no extra cost. All rooms have aircon. and whirlpool baths.

the beach is a 5 min walk away (MAX) and the bus for Fira is only down the road, and cost 1.60Euros each, each way. (well worth the visit!!) there is a little supermarket not 30 seconds from the hotel. they sell everything!!!

so all in all, its fair to say, this was the most wonderful holiday I think we have ever had. so YES, without a shadow of a doubt, we will be back!!!

just one small thing, please leave at least 2.5-3hrs before your flight. Thira airport is mayhem, and we went in may!!

thanks again all at Tamarix. you made our holiday. xxxxxxx :)

Room Tip: we had room 104, 2 meters from the pool. and a nice little shady veranda to. PERFECT!!!!
