“Awesome and gay-friendly!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2011

Beautiful rooms, very helpful and round-the-clock concierge.
Cheap port transfers, lovely pool, very gay-friendly.
Laundromat 200M up the road, super market 300M up the road, Kamari beach 500M down the road - so close to the Kamari night life/shopping.
Amazing. Do yourself a favour. Stay here, hire a quad bike (four-wheeled motorbike) and explore Santorini yourself.

Recently refurbished to a high standard, rooms very clean and modern although bathroom areas a bit tight on space. Excellent pool area, sunbeds always available. Breakfasts excellent, good choice of hot/cold buffet - Anna in kitchen always friendly and smiling. Kamari a great resort. Santorini beautiful and small enough to get round easily. Public transport reliable and reasonably priced. All in all excellent value for money.
Plenty of good restaurants, Alexei's in particular is a favouite providing good quality meals and one of the cheapest tavernas too.. Beach bars on the sea front are cheaper than the hotel for drinks.

My wife and I celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary at Acqua Vatos. We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. The staff was outstanding and very welcoming. We booked a Junior Suite and was upgraded to a Master suite which was immaculate. Do not hesitate to book at this hotel! We will certainly return to the Acqua Vatos for many years to come.

Room Tip: Outstanding staff and great service

I was very grateful to George and the team at the hotel for resolving an issue caused by my booking agent.

The team gave me the impression they want their guests to enjoy their time in Kamari by providing great service and facilities at their hotel. Hotel itself was clean and very modern looking compared to hotels i had checked out before booking.

Location is great, i prefer to be a stones throw away from the beach front which means you can relax by the pool without 100's of people looking through while you try to relax. Once you finished by the pool your 30 seconds walk from the beach front.

So I would only visit this hotel if i find my self back in Kamari

This was our first visit to Santorini. We stayed in the Aqua Vatos for 2 weeks. Throughout our stay in the hotel we could not fine one single fault! Our rooms were cleaned daily and were kept extremely clean! Fresh, fluffy white towels every day in rooms. The rooms are all decorated to a very high standard! They were simply stunning! The staff in the hotel are 2nd to none! Katerina, Maria and Annie are all the most helpful, friendly, beautiful people I have encountered ever whilst on holiday! Nothing was ever too much to ask of them and they always obliged you, always happy, always greeting you with a "good morning, how are you"!! Lovely people. The breakfasts were delicious! A wide variety of local cuisine but also cereal, yoghurts etc. The whole hotel is in absolutely pristine condition throughout! All rooms decorated to a fantastic standard! The pool area is washed/cleaned on a daily basis. Sunbeds very comfortable. Lovely poolside bar with a wide selection of cold drinks. The hotel also give each person a blue fluffy towel for use around the pool - a clean one each day!! We also loved the fact that the staff lit individual laterns with candles which were dotted along both sides of the path leading up to the main entrance in the evening - simply enchanting! You simply cannot go wrong if you book this hotel for a holiday - I recommend it 100%. Katrine & Paul, Peterhead (Rm 212)

Just had to return again to this wonderful place. The genuine warm welcome is always so uplifting. The hotel looks amazing, sooo many new and exciting things to see, around every corner is an innovative idea. The front desk is a real talking point and makes a great first impression along with the smiling faces behind it ............the lighting is so original and is continued in the bedrooms which are so clean and fresh. The bathrooms are great you cant help but smile when you see the tiles ; ) Love the very original library and computer room downstairs. There are shower rooms there also for those checking out late.......again with a message in the tiles!! A great deal of time and effort has gone into the complete renovation, with a quirky sense of humour from the wonderful management..........even George has had a complete make over, he is almost half the size!! This is the ideal spot to enjoy Kamari, the tavernas, beach and pool, with the bus stop and car hire just a stones throw away look no further.

This was our first visit to Santorini and the hotel was lovely. Our room was quite small but very clean and modern with a really good shower room. The pool was nice and the staff were very kind and friendly. Would definitely like to go back in the future. The Liverbird Cafe was a nice place to have breakfast and Alexis Greek Taverna did very nice food and had a real greek atmosphere.
