“Friendly but frustrating”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

The staff was just wonderful, but the lack of wifi in the rooms (regardless of advertising) and the COMPLETE shut down of power at 6:30 am...no lights, no AC, ugh...while the rest of the floor had power was very frustrating. Wine on the rooftop was a nice way toend an evening.

Room Tip: Street view or alley.... Ask for a street view. May be noisy but you won't be looking at another...

Nice hotel with great front desk staff (Effie is the best). Restaurant with bar on premises with decent food and service. Walking distance to Kamari's black beach and strip of shops. Many options for good food and cute beach view bars.

I am not one to write reviews but I had to after reading others. The staff did an absolutely terrific job making our stay wonderful. My wife and I took a Greek Isles tour 14 years ago and wanted to spend more time on the islands, Santorini and Mykonos. We booked through Gate 1 Travel which included the Hermes and were very satisfied.Had to get used to the low beds coming from the U.S.Everything clean and kept up so nice. a wonderful place with beach a short walk away. Breakfast had a nice selection.

Room Tip: Email before arrival and Effie will get you a nice room.

We had a really amazing holiday at the Hermes. Staff were helpful and friendly and the environment peaceful and beautiful. The rooms were very clean and spacious with a lovely view from the balcony. Food was amazing and there was a good selection on the menu. Pools were clean and well maintained. Looking forward to another relaxing holiday there soon!!

Gate One put us here. I would not come back unless I could be sure I was not getting a room like the one(s) we had, and all we use our rooms for is sleeping.
T Our first room was tiny and smelled of mildew. We asked for another and it was an improvement - larger, cleaner but not really clean. There was black mold around the bath tub, the bathroom sink didn't work properly, and when i picked up the hairdryer, it broke into three pieces. The beds were hard, more like sleeping on box springs than mattresses.

Contrast this with two lovely pool areas and attractive plantings throughout. Both rooms we saw were in the original hotel. There were other buildings around and I'm guessing they were nicer. Maybe they are renovating and we got rooms on the "to-do" list. I don't know. But based upon our experience, I can't recommend Hermes.

Room Tip: Based on other, positive, reviews, I have to believe that room quality varies wildly - make sure you...

we have just returned from a week stay at this hotel and we really didnt want to leave. it was spotless in all areas with lovely pretty well kept gardens.the staff actually do make this hotel and we have to mention Effie and Vascilis (spelling maybe dodgy) but we nick named him jonny red due to his whiskey choice - Effie is so helpful and friendly and really cant do enough for you. All of the staff were just as lovely though so a big thanks to them all for making our stay special. We arrived back from the volcanic trip late and didnt have the energy to walk out for food and even though the chef was about to leave the barman said he would ask if he would stay late so we could eat round the pool, He obliged and we were fed some very tasty food ! The breakfast buffet was more than adequate , tasty soft fresh bread , eggs both scrambled and hard boiled, cold meats and cheese,dried and fresh fruit , yoghurt, and a variety of spreads. The house wine was very nice too and cheaper to buy in carafes rather than per glass. I could write much more about this hotel which we loved and really cant find fault with anything. We would love to return but the next 2 years for our holiday party is tied up with weddings abroad so unfortunately cant return soon but cant recommend this hotel or even the resort highly enough!

Room Tip: we were in room 207 which was ground floor and very little balcony but as we spent very little time...

We were greeted by Effie and immediately fell in love with this charming Greek treasure of a hotel. Travelled with our 16 yr old son and he as well regretted leaving for our ferry ride to Mykonos. Our room was spacious with a great size bathroom that included a tub and a Karen terrace looking toward the larger pool. We notice some rooms actually had hot tubs on their terrace....something for us to inquire about on our next visit . There are 2 pools on either side of the entrance. The hotel was walking distance from the beach where there is sort of a boardwalk with many restaurants, bars, shops, art galleries and convenience stores adjacent to the beach. A lively place to walk at nite and see the different vendors. Effie was able to arrange for a car, tour whatever we hade in mind. I can honestly Santorini. I have to say if all hotel's had an Effie all our traveling experiences would be memorable. We would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: If interested inquire about the rooms with the big hot tub on the terrace. Looked like a fantastic...
