me my partner and my 4yr old daughter stayed here for a week all inclusive last week ,it was a late booking and couldnt find anything but came across this hotel ,looked at the reviews and there wasen't many so we took a gamble, the hotel is lovely big pool little kids pool and a jacuzzi room was lovely aswell with free air conditioning ,free safe, free wifi and free tv and fridge in our room ,our rooms where cleaned every day while we was there and staff very helpful ,the breakfast was basic continental toast ham cheese cucumber ect, lunch and tea had its good days and bad days but more good , but nothing for children to really eat we only got chips twice while we was there so my daughter lived of fruit and bread and butter rice and pasta for a week ,the all inclusive is abit basic aswell the bar is opens at 10am the snacks is only cheese and ham toasties and ice cream 3pm till 6pm , but did not really bother us ,there where good choice of hot and cold drinks but no spirits or cocktails you have to pay for them , the staff in the dining room and behind the bar was great with our daughter and worked very hard to make sure that we had a good time , downside to the hotel is there is no entertainment what so ever and its 500yards to far away from main strip with no street lighting on roads when walking to and from hotel also they dont cater for any english its italians and germans mostley staying there but that never bothered us , all in all we had a great relaxing break , but would not go back to the hotel or resort its not a place for children.

Hotel Makarios is a small oasis with palm trees, lovely blue pool, nice little poolbar, Tennis court, restaurant and the some of the most friendly people you will find in greece. Always smiling, geniuenly happy people.

The rooms are all standard, but comes with everything you world want. Aircondition, Tv, music system, fridge, comfy beds, cabinets to store your clothes and a nice bathroom with a
shower and a nice clean toilet. And on top of that you get a balkony with a good view and a couple of chairs.

The food is alright, not as exclusive as the local resturants but high standard for a small hotel.

The bar serves all kinds of drinks, we ordered all inclusive and especially enjoyed the cold white wine while sitting at the pool.

The only negative thing i can really say about the hotel is the location next to the airport, at times the planer can be noisy but the come overhead maby once an hour and not all times of the day. Although i like planes myself it fun to be able to see them up close when they pass by once in a while.

Id like to state that after reading some of the negative reviews here i found it important to write my own when we came back. Because after my stay here at the hotel i can say they are misleading and may cause unnessary consern.

Hotel Makarios is a lovely hotel.

Have a nice vacation

lasse from Denmark.

This hotel is very good, you pay for it ... it's not cheap, but you have a lot of services ... good swimming-pool, tennis, ping-pong, free internet-access, very good breakfast, nice rooms. All was fine, but you pay almost 70 euros per night for a double room ...
If you think the price is fine, you will like for sure this hotel !

Clean public areas but not air conditioned. Bedrooms are basic, but clean, and towels and bed linen changed regularly. Rooms are air conditioned, there’s a TV, fridge and safety deposit box. The shower room is small but ok, the shower however is so small that an adult struggles to wash without constantly banging into the sides!
The Hotel is dominated by Italians, the staff address you in Italian, even the notices for guests posted in Italian, there are four guest information folders, all from Italian tour operators. Inconsiderate, ignorant , Italians.
Pool and Jacuzzi would benefit from cleaning. During our two week stay we never saw anyone cleaning the pool, the bottom edges had black sand around them which was getting steadily worse. Even in July, with the outside temperatures ranging from 30 to 40 degrees, the pool is cold.
Bedroom we had, sea view balcony, also had a fine view of the end of the runway, something they omit to mention! Aircraft pass regularly, almost overhead, there is more than “some aircraft noise, the doors and windows rattle! That said, it didn’t bother us, it should be noted the first one arrives about 05.30.
The food is aimed at Italian/Greek which is fine, pity it never even reaches the buffet hot let alone your table. We gave up on eating cold Lasagne etc after the first few days, opting to eat out in the evenings. Snacks are available at the pool bar, cheese and ham toasties is the menu!!
The all inclusive drinks arrangement is not the norm, there’s a hot and cold soft drinks machine, beer and white wine on tap, and you help yourself. All other drinks are chargable.
The internet access refered to is one machine, shared by all, only made available from 10 till 10. That said, I was able to hook up a wired connection to my laptop which was fine when the Greek phonelines were working!!

We visited Santorini and specifically Hotel Makarios three weeks ago and still remember the relaxing time we spent around the lagoon pool of the hotel!
The food was excellent and honestly our decition ti travel on all inclusive this summer was indeed a big relief during our holidays, since we didn;t have to wonder around and speculate whic restaurant is most probably the best to eat at!
This way we spent more money to amuse ourselves at night!
The personnel was very polite and present day and night at the reception so we felt more safe!For those who seek to have the best itme in Santorini, hotel Makarios should be their top destination combinig both ease, relax and economy!
p.s. the room was uite spacious compared to other 2* star hotels, featuring characteristics of a minimum 3* star hotels in Europe!

Hey there! i was in Makarios hotel just 10 days ago and i really had a good time... Makarios is more than just a three star hotel. The staff made us feel as a family.... The pool and the outdoor jacuzzi were our favorite spots... The food was also really tasty apart from plenty!!!!
The rooms are simple but comfortable enough.
If you visit Santorini, Makarios hotel is a good choice...
