We really enjoyed our time in Santorini, lovely people, fantastic food, I would say the Acqua Vatos is a good hotel in Kamari, well situated but I think my expectations were raised too much by the reviews on here maybe I expected more!
Anyhow positives: George- a funny guy and very quick to help,I got the impression he wouldn't take messsing though! His greek assistant was lovely too.
He gave us good recommendations for places to eat , all places we went to on the beach front were excellent, I would say it's better when you turn right when you reach the beach than the left side, Favourites were the Family Taverna recommended by George- he must like it too as we saw him eating there one night! We really liked the first big bar on the left too- v cute and sweet waiter- Nico!! He really looked after us! The expensive boat trip recommended by George- 48 euro each but def worth it and was v special!
The hotel looks nice on the inside and lovely at night.
The pool area is nice, enough umbrellas and comfortable sun loungers.Re previous poster who said there was no sun space- there was plenty of sun space on the right side but if you wanted sun & shade that side was by the road so a little noisy. You couldn't see the traffic just hear it but I just accepted that Kamari is a buzzy place and it's on the central route down to the beach.
Comfortable bed and great AC!
Negatives- noise by pool and a little in room- scooters!
View from room but I wasn't really bothered by that.
Room a little small and quite pricey- 100/110 euro a night.
Flipping shower curtain that would not stay in shower and so floor gets soaked but it does drain away! Think this is the greek style.
At the end of our stay a big group arrived with some rowdy children who spolit the relaxing atmosphere around the pool, we were glad this was at the end of our stay not the beginning.
The pool bar- if it was a bit more open so you didn't have go to reception to ask for drinks this would be better.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tucked away in the heart of Kamari in Santorini and just a few passes away of the famous black sand beach, the Acqua Vatos has been fully refurbished and transformed into a hip boutique hotel in the spring of 2011. It is trendy, elegant and from time to time eccentric, with minimalistic design and exhibitionist bathrooms. Acqua Vatos is ideal for families with kids, since there are rooms designed and equipped especially for them. The XXL pool is a star attraction for adults and children of any age. ... more less
