“A clean, friendly and well kept hotel on the outskirts of Kamari at a reasonable price”
Reviewed 24 July 2010

The hotel Castro is run by a very friendly Greek family. Almost always you can find some of the family members sitting in front of the hotel and chatting with their grandma. One of the daughters takes care of a wonderful tropical garden which provided fresh figs and grapes for the breakfasts. The rooms are very well kept and almost new. They have a large pool with several sunbeds and parasols. You can use A/C and fast wireless internet for free. They also provide a decent parking area.

The hotel is located about 10 minutes walk up-hills from Kamari beach very close to the open-air cinema. The breakfast are basic but decent enough: fresh bread, cheese, butter, jam, Greek yoghurt, some not home-made sweets, hot water, hotel-type coffee and fake juices. On some days you could get fresh fruit from their tropical garden.

The other daughter was a little bit too keen on using all available booking.com services. I was rather annoyed when my credit card was pre-authorised a week before my staying there. She also messed up some of the possibilities and booking.com informed me that I made a no-show on my second day of my stay at the hotel.

Great place to stay for a day or two, especially if you want to be near the airport. Has a really nice pool, clean and reasonably big rooms and the whole place looks and feels nice. 15 minute walk to the 'main drag' where there are some nice(ish) restaurants, bars etc and a beach of black sand.
Very good value for Santorini, but it is on the wrong side for the Caldera. Breakfast is VERY basic (bread, yoghurt and cake). Our pick-up for the airport was 25 minutes late and they charged 15 euros when a taxi would have charged no more than 10.
We had to change our booking at short notice and they were very good about that.

We absolutely loved our stay in Santorini. The hotel was perfect for us. We were looking for a bargain hotel because we were on a budget. I wasn't sure what we were going to get because the hotel was so inexpensive. The hotel, room and bathroom were extremely clean. I can't stand filth and grime and this place didn't have any. The free breakfast was awesome. The owners made you feel very comfortable and were very helpful. The free wi-fi is very fast. We would definitely stay there again.
