We just returned from a lovely relaxing week staying at the Hermes Hotel, after a short transfer from the airport 10mins max we were greeted by friendly reception staff who showed us to our room 109. It was beautiful with access to the balcony from both the sleeping area and lounge area facing over the children's pool, room had TV & fridge/mini bar. The main pool was where we spent our days relaxing enjoying a local beer Fix and lunch with plenty of choice. I emailed the hotel prior to our stay to enquire about hair dryers these are provided ladies in the bathroom so save on your luggage weight. We went B&B (HB available) of the seven nights decided to eat 3 days at the Liverbird restaurant which was approx 5mins walk from the hotel staff were very friendly &welcoming. We enjoyed a full English breakfast after becoming bored of the traditional continental breakfast. All hotel staff were excellent, friendly and could not do enough for you, Effie was fantastic, our flight was 21:45 and we asked to keep our room unfortunately the hotel was full, but we kept the room until 2.30pm. Effie gave us fresh towels and a hair dryer as a shower room was available at no extra cost. The beach was less than 5mins walk from the hotel plenty of sunbeds 5€ per bed per day. There was no end of choices of where to eat. Tip - keep walking further down the beach front towards the mountain and prices become cheaper. We can highly recommend a mixed grill at a restaurant a few yards from the hotel next to the supermarket - very cheap: Greek Salad, Pitta, Mixed Grill & 1/2 btl of wine 18€ for 2!!

This was an excellent hotel that we highly recommend to others. We booked through Olympic Holidays worth emailing hotel direct as many hotels in Karmari offering big discounts.

Just returned from this lovely hotel after a wonderful week. Cannot praise highly enough the friendly welcome we received, particularly from Effie , the receptionist, who can't do enough for you. Our room was spacious, spotlessly clean and air- conditioned thank goodness! We had a balcony with a garden view which was pleasant but not spectacular so request a high floor with pool views if you are fussy about this, I think some of the lower rooms might be a bit dark. The breakfast buffet was good and we are told the food in the restaurant was excellent though we did not dine in. All local amenities are within easy reach - a huge choice of bars and tavernas all with friendly waiters vying for your custom. We used a fair selection and all were good. For cocktails try The Love Boat . We had a late pick up for our 9.45 flight so were rather dreading having to check out early. Once again Effie to the rescue! She let us keep our room all day for no extra charge.Most places charge for this service if available at all! All in all we were delighted with our choice of hotel and would recommend The Hermes to anyone.

Room Tip: Choose a high floor with pool views

Hermes is located a couple of blocks from the beach at town of Kamari. Has regular rooms and cabana style complexes. Restaurant very pleasant with fine regular meals and breakfast cafe. Has full sized swimming pool. Hostess was very congeal. All staff were helpful and English is spoken. Room has smaller, Greek-style mattresses. Shower only (to conserve water?)

We reserved trough Gate One. They had other choices in Kamari but Hermes is closer to town and away from airport. Rented a small car at airport from Budget. Drop-off services were provided. Island also has bus services but we didn't use them.

Town itself is less hectic than Fira which is visited by tour boats. Many, many seaside restaurants to choose from. Pleasant, long beach with lots of beach chairs. Black sand, though. can get hot. Boardwalk reminded me of Venice Beach or Zihuatanejo, Mexico.

WE stayed in a delightful room over looking the pool. Very picturesque n' private! Short walk to the beach n' boardwalk shopping n' dining. Quiet surroundings and easy access to buses for touring other cities on Santorini Island.

Room Tip: Overlooking the pool area.

One of the best hotels my partner and I have stayed in for excellent service and relaxation. To enjoy breakfast and our evening meal outside on the sun terrace was delightful. Great location - just a short walk to the shops/bars/cafe's/restaurants. Nothing was too much bother for any of the staff - we even got to keep our room free of charge for our mid-evening flight! Food in the hotel was very good and fair prices compared to the restaurants along the kamari strip. We enjoyed a one week stay in May last year (2011) and are seriously considering booking again for this year. Santorini is a beautiful island to explore and see some spectacular scenery.

Excellent, helpful staff. Arrived for a 3 night stay. Hotel was full and our room was horrible - dirty tub, faucets stuck (really, could not be moved by hand) drapes falling off wall, view of parking lot construction site. Complained and got moved next day to wonderful room with a view. Location is excellent. Hotel is clean and very pretty. I'd go back!!

Room Tip: Ask for a 2nd floor room near the pool. There are some with outdoor hot tubs
