We really enjoyed our stay at The Boathouse, even if it was just for one night. We arrived to Santorini by ferry and took two buses to the hotel in the town of Kamari. We had never been to the island, but the bus system was very self-explanatory and inexpensive, and the bus rides were a great way to see the island. Not only does the hotel have a beautiful pool, but it's located literally footsteps from a beautiful black-pebble beach, smack in the center of a thriving beach town lined with shops and tavernas. The moment you step into town, you know that you will have a great time there.
We had several great meals in Kamari, and took the requisite trip to the north side of the island to the famous town of Oia where all the Santorini postcard pictures with blue-roofed churches are taken (you need to take two buses to get there, but it's an easy trip and highly recommended).
The staff members at the hotel were all extremely friendly. They gave us great, honest recommendations, and even let us keep our bags in the lobby for a large portion of the day since our ferry to leave the island wasn't until midnight, but we had to check out by noon. We enjoyed staying in Kamari because it allowed us the relaxing beach vibe we prefer, while also letting us be a short distance from one of the most famous tourist spots in the world.
