We paid for a last minute Thomson deal and were given the Maria Preka hotel. The room was spotless with adequate catering facilities. The location was close to the beach and the restaurants. The pool was clean and we had maid service every day. There is also no pool bar, but we took drinks in plastic glasses and cans outside by the pool, Maria didn't seem to mind.
The only negative point was that we stayed in ROOM 20 which had a balcony view of Maria's numerous washing lines, bloomers and bed linen abound! Our balcony also had room 19 toilet window overlooking us, which was unpleasant if the occupants decided to open it after using it!! We never ate on the balcony for this reason.
But the rest of our stay was wonderful, and as a late deal we had a great week.
Kamari is great, lots of tavernas, supermarkets and shops. Great for veggies too. My partner is a vegetarian and sampled many different dishes.
Bus trips to Fira are worth doing, costing only 1.20 euro. Unfortunately the Kamari to Perrissa water taxi wasn't in operation as we went in early May - but did the walk to aicient Thira which was a huge trek but worth it.
Would defintely visit Santorini again, and would stay at Maria Preka's again ,but would hope we wouldn't get room 20 again!!!
