“Perfect”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

It doesn't come any better than this. Not only is it the perfect location, but Maria and staff make sure it's the perfect experience. Our daughter turned 15 while we were staying here. Maria and family presented her with a poolside cake and Greek birthday song. She will remember it forever. We'll be back for her 16th. (P.S. Hi Rex)

Highly recommended. We have now stayed here on a number of occasions and on every visit the facilities have been excellent as usual. The new breakfast area is another example of the way Maria, the owner, is always looking for ideas to improve on what is already a marvellous place to stay on the beautiful island of Santorini. Maria always goes out of her way to ensure that guests have a most enjoyable stay and is always on hand to assist in any way that she can. Her good English is a great bonus to visitors like us who know very little of the Greek language.

We stayed at the Kalya in Aug 2013. Our experience from the day we arrived (where we were in the pool within 1 hour of stepping off the plane) to the day we left was amazing, which had lots to do with the owner Maria and her fantastic staff. As mentioned by previous comments, the rooms, pool & surrounding area are immaculate and very clean. Whilst on this holiday we got engaged & over the following days we began discussing with Maria the possibility of holding our wedding at Kalya, as we wanted to come back to Santorini to get married.

In July 2014, we returned to Kalya with our family & friends for our big day. We were impressed with the new additions from our previous visit, namely the breakfast area and bar. For the weekend of the wedding we had a 9 of the 12 apartments. The wedding and holiday we had were fantastic and we can’t thank Maria and her family enough for making our big day so special and perfect. We had our wedding ceremony in the beautifully transformed breakfast area and reception and BBQ meal around the pool area.

Over the previous 11 months we had been telling our family and friends how great the Kalya Suites were, but they were still amazed when they experienced it for themselves. Friends that could not stay at Kalya were very envious! Needless to say that we can’t recommend the Kalya Suites highly enough as a place to stay for a great holiday, and we can’t wait to return! Thank you once again Maria xx

Highly recommended - this was a fantastic place to stay. The rooms and decor were immaculate. The pool area was also lovely - very comfortable with plenty of loungers and a handy bar for drinks. Breakfast area was really lovely with lots of choice for food. The highlight was Maria the owner who was helpful and generous - she even invited our parents who were staying elsewhere to join us for breakfast. On top of all that it was literally a 1 minute walk to the beach and lots of good restaurants. It is close to the airport so 5 or 6 times a day aircraft fly over very low - however we didn't find this a problem. Couldn't fault it we had a fantastic holiday.

What can I say, the Kalya suites is a little gem. We travelled for a wedding and cannot fault this place in any way. The rooms are spacious, very clean and ideally located around the pool area. We stayed in a studio (room 8) and literally had to hop over our balcony and into the pool. Maria was the most amazing host, bringing drinks and freshly baked snacks for lunchtime. My daughter Maisie was treated like a little princess the whole time and was even taken to the shops for sweets, toys and ice cream by Maria which was a lovely touch. The beach is little more than 2 minute walk away where you will find the shops, restaurants and bars. Thanks to Maria and family and look forward to seeing you next year.

Maria, the owner, was very welcoming. As soon as we arrived, she offered us a drink. She was very knowledgeable about the island and gave us good suggestions. She was never too busy to help us. Her breakfast was really nice, too. Her staff was friendly. The whole place was relaxed and easy going. The location is good, just a few steps from the beach and many restaurants. Our suite had a spacious balcony and an alcove for extra beds. I'd recommend this hotel to everyone who is staying at Kamari. Maria will make your stay a happy one.

Room Tip: The suites facing the front on the second floor have sea views. The other ones look out to the garde...

We were very lucky to find this little gem smack in the middle of Kamari Beach. They only have 12 suites so one can expect a nice personal service.

Surrounded by nice taverns and bars everywhere. Two small supermarkets at your door step. One minute walk to Kamari Beach. A nearby free public car park. 10 minute walk to the bus stop. Could not think of a better location.

The private pool and surrounding area and poolside bar are really nice and clean.
The room was well equipped and offered a spacious private balcony with nice view of the beach.

Maria, the owner, is an absolute star and a good operator, who spared no effort whatsoever to make her guests feel well and truly at home.

The breakfast offered a good variety and was really delicious, with plenty of home made food & jams cooked by Maria herself. We also had the chance to sample some organic veggies picked from Maria's little garden.

Highly recommended. I would not stay anywhere else in Santorini. Two thumbs up!!
