“Great Vacations”
Reviewed 21 September 2006

The reason we booked our honeymoon holyday in Aqua Vatos hotel was the nice web site, but when we arrived at the hotel we were really amazed because it was even better than the description on the web site.
The hotel is located in the heart of Kamari village, surrounded by several restaurants and bars and only 50 meters from the beach. The rooms are clean and the whole hotel is tastefully decorated. The swimming pool is big, very clean and a wonderful place to relax. The breakfast is good and the breakfast terrace is lovely surrounded by trees and flowers.
But what made our stay so great in Santorini were our new friends George TSOLAKAKIS and Alina who are the best and most friendly hotel owners we ever met. George and Alina recommended us the best places in Santorini and also the best restaurants where we were able to enjoy real greek tastes.
Thank you George and Alina for making our stay in Santorini the best vacations ever and for making us feel like at home.
We truly recommend the Aqua Vatos hotel to everyone who wants to spend unforgetable vacations in Santorini!!!!!!!

George and Alina we love you! Your friends Stelios and Katerina from Salzburg! We will be back soon!

  • Liked — The pool, the breakfast and ofcourse the hospitality of George and Alina
  • Tips/Secrets — If you want to see the best places of Santorini, ask George and Alina!

Excellent is an understatement when visiting the Acqua Vatos Hotel!!!!!! The hotel is lovely. The rooms, although they can be a little more spacious, are cozy and beautiful. The hotel is ideally located within walking distance from the Kamari Beach and all the gift shops and restaurants. The hotel also allows you to not only book any excursions on the island, but renting transportation (car, scooter, quad etc.,) is conveniently available at the lobby desk. What makes this hotel two steps above the rest is the hospitality. The hotel is managed by the Great, and I repeat Great George and Alina Tsolakakis!!!!!! Both George and Alina made our stay!!!!! The two of them assisted us with anything and everything. From directions to recommended restaurants to the best sites on the island, George and Alina offered us their knowledgeable insight. Now I know management/staff from other hotels offer recommendations, but what makes George and Alina standout is their sincerity. The genuine duo made our stay feel as is we were home. From the 1st moment to the very last minute of our stay, George and Alina made us feel not like guests, but as if we were a part of their family. Due to this, the Acqua Vatos Hotel and it's Great management are clearly steps above the rest. Not only will I stay here again, I have recommended it to friends who are planning to visit the island.

Thanks for the memories,
Georgia O. & Ricky T. (American Cop!!!!)

  • Liked — The unbelievable management within the hotel!!!!
  • Disliked — The rooms were not so spacious.
  • Tips/Secrets — Definetly recommend this hotel. The rooms are not so spacious, but everything else the hotel offers truly makes up for this minor issue.

George and Alina are Amazing! They helped us with everything from the second we arrived to the time we left. The hotel is in a great location on Kamari Beach walking distance to the beach and resturants. Short Quad to Fira and Oia. (The Quad was cool!) The rooms are clean and tastefully decorated but what makes this hotel fantastic is the way George and Alina take care of their guests. You will have a great time at this hotel!

The Aqua Vatos hotel - the perfect place to stay when you are in santorini !
It's a beautifull decotated hotel, with a lovely clean rooms, a big pool and a nice breakfast. The hotel has a great location, near the kamari beach and it's close to the bus station.
Yet, the main reason we recomand the Aqua Vatos hotel is George and Alina! They are the most kindly, friendly and helpfull hotel owners in santorini!
George and Alina helped us to book tickets to the catamaran back to crete' (it was high season and every travel agency we asked told us that everything is full a week ahead).
Thank you again George and Alina for making our stay in santorini so much fun and perfect !
We highly recommend the Aqua Vatos hotel for future travelers !!!

The staff at the hotel are among the most helpful I've ever experienced. George and Alina (borther/sister owners) made sure we had cabs as needed (there are only 38 on the whole island) and gave us great recommendations for day and nightlife.

The rates were very reasonable, the rooms were clean, the pool is great and the beach is 50 meters away.

I would advise booking directly with the hotel. The hotel guarentees rooms to their direct bookings first in case of overbooking by agents.

We have just returned from our trip to Santorini where we stayed for 3 nights at Acqua Vatos Hotel. Because of its exceptional rating we expected much more than we actually got. The people there are really friendly and helpful but the hotel is in my opinion not more than a nice three star hotel managed by an ambitious couple. Our room was quite tiny, we had a leaking toilet, a small balcony and we both could hardly sleep because the bed was really uncomfortable. So please do not expect to much (as we did).
