Very nice hotel with a perfect location in Kamari village and only twenty minutes from airport. Two minutes walk to beach and restaurants. New renovated rooms , very good beds and fantatic nice and modern bathrooms ! Flatscreen-TV , refrigerator and aircontition in all rooms. Soundproof windows and doors make the rooms very quiet when you will sleep. Nice pool-area with umbrellas and sunbeds. Transfer service to airport if you contact the hotel. But best of all ... " The staff " !! Most great people I ever meet ... Highly recommend this hotel ... If you will visit Santorini and Kamari ..

We had a very pleasant stay at the Hippocampus Hotel on September, 2011. Very clean and comfortable rooms, friendly staff, and great location. The beach is only a short walk away and so are the many shops and restaurants. Everything is located within a short walking distance from the hotel, including mini-markets, beauty shops, gift shops, etc.

A bus stop is located near the hotel and it takes only 12 minutes to reach Thira, the capital of the island. We did not rent a car because there was no need for it.

A special "thank you" to the proprietors and their staff for making our 8-day vacation a happy and memorable experience. I would recommend this hotel to family and friends. We hope to return soon.

Room Tip: All the rooms we saw were spacious, clean, and well-appointed. The mattresses and pillows are the b...

This was a very nice and clean hotel. The personnel was very friendly and accommodating. The location was close to the beach and bustling boardwalk. The pool was refreshing and large. Hotel Hippocampus is a great value and I would recommend it to friends and family.

This is a great little hotel. Located a few meters from the beach, you have the advantage of being near the beach but the privacy and quiet of not being ON it.

The staff are very nice and helpful. The price was very reasonable for such a location and for the peak season.

The breakfast is modest but nice, and consists of
-Corn and bran flakes
-Yogurt and canned peaches and watermelon
-cakes, cookies, tea and coffee
-bread, two kinds of cheeses, two kinds of bologna ham, boiled eggs
-Tomatoes and cucumbers
-jams and butter.

The bathrooms are really great.

The "double room" consists of two beds shoved together, which made sleeping two a bit odd but apparently this is common in Greece.

The pool is very nice and clean and pretty large.

Very much recommended!

We had a very pleasant stay in Santorini at the end of last september and I must say that besides the gorgeous island, having had such a very nice hotel like Hippocampus in Kamari added something realy unique to our trip. Booking was very simple and hotel staff was extremely helpful, when we arrived we found some suprisingly confortamble and clean bedrooms in a nice place, Kamari, wich has a good balance of night life and quietness (It's not Firà of course but you wouldn't expect that), and is quickly connected to all main centres in the Island. A nice sourprise is the swimming pool, very quiet and clean and most of all the owner (i'm sorry i can't remember the precise name) that made us really feel welkomed and "at home" in our trip.

We stayed at the Hippocampus in Kamari during September and had a wonderful stay. We have been to Kamari for the past 6 years and have stayed at various hotels (Rivari, Santellini, IRA) but the Hippocampus is by far the best. The rooms were large and the bathrooms are something else - on a parr with 4 or 5 star hotels in England. The shower was fabulous (room for two!) and the cleanliness of the bathroom and room was outstanding. Towels and bedding changed every other day and the room is cleaned daily. The pool area is large and although the water is cold the pool is clean and gives a fantastic swim. Breakfast is simple continental but hours (8am to 10am) are great.
Location is excellent as you are central (right by the bus stop) so not far from the beach. No noise as the double glazing and shutters are fantastic.
Toula and her family were so welcoming and even took us back to the airport in their minibus.
We will be going back to Santorini for many years and will always stay at the Hippocampus from now on.
