The hotel surpassed all our expectations of a 2/3 star hotel, it is very much a typically Greek hotel and is family run. It was very clean, the rooms were nice and (as mentioned in many other reviews) Manolis, on reception, could not have done more to help. The hotel is in a great location 2 minutes walk from the beach and approx 5 minutes walk to the bus stop which will take you all over the island. It is a peace full hotel while still being close to all the bars and restaurants. The breakfast was a nice continental breakfast, some people have made comments about the breakfast on previous reviews but in such hotels a continental breakfast is to be expected. We cannot thank Manolis at the Avra enough for his hospitality he really does make the hotel a wonderful place to stay and we will be returning.
Kamari is a great resort, I would suggest it is the best place to stay in Santorini. Perissa was somewhat quiet and Fira on the other hand was very busy but both very much worth a visit. Kamari has many wonderful restaurants and bars but don’t expect there to be any bars you would see in Zante. It is very easy to get around the island by bus as it is only 1.60euro to Fira.
You have to see the sunset in three different places; Oia where the streets and even roofs are lined with people, Santo Winery which is worth booking a table before hand and by boat. We did a boat trip to the Caldera, hot springs, Thirassia and to see the sunset. There is not much in Thirassia but it is a beautiful place, take plenty of water if you walk up the Caldera and the hot springs is a must!!
Many people get round the island on a quad bike, these do struggle up the hills. Instead we rented a Suzuki Jimny and this was perfect for getting round I would really recommend it
This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited, do NOT forget your camera!!
