i was there in 24 th of september 2010 , the truth is that i can't forget the place , actually it became a habit to check reviews of the places i had ben .
i decided to add a review for this amazing spot .
my room was on the top floor in the Main building where the lobby and restaurant.
Actually i booked this Hotel based on Good rates and the H.board Basis to save Money .as
most of kamari hotels seemed to be the same from pictures and i wasn't interested in t.advisor.

The Food was greart , became addicted to the mashed greek olive salad and the beach was amazing with direct access from the Hotel , the front Boardwalk over kamari beach with its unique shops and bars was really memorable and very romantic .

this is the place that i wish to go Many Times.

We stayed at the hotel Venus Beach for one week in September 2012 having been invited by friends for their wedding. If you are expecting a 4 star hotel then you will be very dissapointed as this is more of a 2 star hotel!!! The overall impression of the hotel was good but there was little to convince me to return. We stayed in room 332 which had a good sea view and was kept clean and tidy throughout our stay however, there were no standard extras which you would expect from this standard of hotel. There was no kettle, iron or ironing board and we had to ask for more pillows as well as clean beach towels which were not changed daily!!! The hotel advertises satelite TV in the rooms but this was not the case as they only had one english channel which was the BBC World Service. The staff in the bars and restaurant were friendly but the reception staff were quite frosty which was not a good impression as front of house. We stayed half board so had plenty of opportunity to test the food which was ok but repetitive and there was no air conditioning or fan to keep you cool so the room became very hot and uncomfortable. The beach was ok but not good for children or pensioners as it is quite windy and the drop from the beach helped to create quite a big swell which crashed quite heavily onto the beach and making it difficult to get back out.

Room Tip: Ask for a high level room and sea view as many of the rooms overlook the pool or face onto a brick w...

Stayed 2 weeks 28 Aug / 11 Sept 2012. Bed and Breakfast.
Loved Santorini, beautiful island, good public bus services, and amazing places. Have been to many Greek Islands and love them all, but this island is very special!
Kamari very good,the hotel is sited right in the middle on the front, it has lovely bar on the sea front, with a nice restaurent opposite, the young lady who serves in the bar at night, is charming, very friendly and a good worker, sorry do not remember her name but a great asset to the hotel.
Cash machine next to bar, also office for booking trips, very handy, with car / quad rental near front entrance.
Hotel beach opposite has good sunbeds with mats and shade plus a girl to serve drinks etc, as stated beaches are stony, pebbles, black etc but not as bad as we thought, i.e. better than Teneriffe. Beach Guards and flag system etc, No cost if in the Hotel.
Kamari front is very nice, with numerous restaurents and bars along the full length of the front.
The Blackstone Restaurent just back from the front, near the small bus station, was our best eating place, great food, family run, live music and dancing some nights, but nice people as well.
The Sky Bar on the front, run by Alex was really nice for cocktails, very upmarket but friendly place.
The Hotel was good but few silly negatives, we were in room 325 and were a bit surprised at how small it was with minimal hanging or storage space, we went to reception to move rooms but the reception desk were very frosty, bit surprised, as I had e-mailed prior to ask for a good room etc,so we left it.
We were bed and breakfast, and found no gripes with the breakfast, on par for greece, so o.k.
Pool area very nice, clean and good pool bar, always got beds o.k.
Same thing on beach, no problem with beds.
Clean towels each day, also beach towels provided. The cleaners in this hotel are very good, they clean and wipe everything in sight, I know as I watched them every day working very hard.
Bed was very comfortable, we asked and got extra pillows, plus air con was very good, extract fan in bathroom as well.
Tip! take ear plugs for night time,makes a big difference, due to strange door handles you HAVE to slam the door when going out to get it to close!
The Thompson Rep, John was very good, one of the best !

Room Tip: Make sure you know the size! some are bigger than others, but the small are short on storage.

we stayed in this hotel for 1 week in august 2012. It is a very clean hotel. The receptionists are friendly and helpfull. The room we stayed in had a sea view and next doors pool view. breakfast was just about passible. the one downside as we have children is the amount of steps. when you have a pushchair. its a pain in the bum. we counted 60 steps we had to use from our room to the pool. so not a good hotel for pushchair users or disabled people.there is no lift. also the childrens pool advetised is not a childrens pool. its a jet pool with a big sitting area all inside of the pool. our daughter is 3 and it was to deep for her and dangerous with the step inside of it. we used next doors pool instead at kamari beach. there are not enough beds around the pool and there is no breeze around it. kamari beach is facing the beach. so you can feel a breeze. the shower in room gives you alot of cold showers.

We stayed for a week at this hotel.Although the hotel site itself is OK.It is clean, and matches the photos, overall we were disappointed for the following reasons:
On arrival the reception was 'frosty'- not the typical friendly Greek reception at all. We were initially given a room with a view of a concrete wall, and it was only through our persistence that we were eventually given a slightly better room.Again, the response was 'frosty' and unhelpful to say the least.The bed was very hard, so I slept badly.
We stayed half board, and the food was poor - bland and repetitive.There was no air con or fan in the restaurant so it was very uncomfortable in the July heat, and the ambiance was that of a transport cafe! We would have been better off going B&B and eating at the restaurants along the sea front, which were reasonably priced and offered good Greek cuisine.
The pool area is far too small for the numbers of guests, and the beds were always all 'reserved' with towels by 6:00 a.m.
Kamari as a resort is pleasant, not over commercialised,and at night the bars and restaurants are great.The beach is a type of shingle. The sea depth drops steeply so not suitable for young children.
Before you book this hotel, my advice would be to look at the many other apartments and hotels at this resort , which mostly looked pretty good,and stay B&B!

Room Tip: Be VERYspecific about what you want from your room, especially if you want a balcony, as not all roo...

We stayed here with a party of over 30 people out for a wedding in Santorini.
I could not praise the staff enough for their service and kindness. The rooms are spotless and perfect. But watch out for the statement "all of our double rooms have a pool or sea view". The don't. Ours had a view of the road at the back of the hotel.

Food is a different matter - breakfasts were weird, with tinned carrots making an appearance one morning, but hey, this is Greece and maybe they eat carrots for breakfast here. We chance the hotel's restaurant on the edge of the beach in front of the hotel for lunch one day, ordering gyros. They were horrible, greasy things I couldn't recommend to anyone.

The star staff member was the girl who works the bar in the evenings, with a beautiful smiling face and terrific manner - I don't remember her name, but the owners will know who she is - giver her a raise in salary!!!

One final point - why do they close the pool at 6pm each evening, with hours of hot sunchine left???

Very clean, friendly staff and helpful, great location. The downside - pool area very cramped and not enough sun beds and they are reserved by 06.30! The beach sunbeds reserved by 08.30! Restaurant chairs and tables are like garden furniture or a cafeteria, food very poor in variety, presentation and not replenished when run out. I ate at 8.30pm the first night and the starter consisted of soup or salad of tomatoes, cucumber, cheese and the end of a bread stick. The main meal options were rice, pasta, a wet looking spinach and cheese pie and dried looking beef. Dessert was 2 slices of a white mousse, 6 whole oranges or several balls of what looked like melon? Breakfast was just as poor, inch squares of dried ommelette, baked beans, bite size smoked sausage, sliced meat and cheese if you like that and yogurt with tinned fruit! The toast ran out quickly and you got bored waiting for a refil? My room was basic but fine however had a view of a white wall directly outside and no patio or balcony despite requesting either. Will go back to Kamari but not stay at this hotel again or recommend it I'm afraid.

Room Tip: It doesn't make any difference to request specifics unless you want to complain.
