Hotel Porto Castello
Reviewed 10 August 2014

This review is based on only 6 hours in the hotel so we may not have the full experience?

We had to vacate our villa accommodation at noon but were only flying home at 10pm , and so needed a base for the afternoon. This was perfect as it was close to the airport (but then so is everything on Santorini!), was a reasonable price, good rooms, with a pool, and close to a restaurant (although the restaurant nearby can not be recommended).

Our booking was via Booking.com who as always did a good job, and helped us get an early check-in for noon rather than the normal 14.00.

Pool is salt water and as such you can just float motionless - great feeling in the sun.

Room Tip: Room 12 was good with a sort walk to the pool area, large balcony with flowers surrounding it, air c...

Despite the fact that the hotel is in a pretty remote location (meaning it was a pain organising transportation into the town centre) my friend and I really enjoyed our stay at Porto Castello. It was peaceful and quiet with a pleasant pool area, just what we needed to unwind. It is also very close to the nearest beach with a gorgeous resteraunt (Aegialos- seriously worth a visit!) which was certainly a bonus. Unfortunately we both felt that the staff made our stay a hell of a lot worse than what it could have been. Excluding one receptionist, they were all incredibly unwelcoming and almost rude. When we attempted to ask questions they would respond with an irritable sigh and made it seem like having us stay was a burden. I understand that a few of them couldn't speak english, which is fine, but it would have been nice to have been greeted with at least a smile. We felt extremely unwanted and ended up moving hotels.

We were the at the beginning of Aug, 2013. The rooms are okay, but they lack water kettle for example, which should be basic for a hotel.
The breakfast is the same every day: Bread, some type of ham, butter, biscuits, coffee, milk, water, tea, juice (the drop tablet into water type).
Every day the same for 10 days... So we had to manage ourselves sometimes.
The walls are very thin and a lot of people are slamming the doors, so you wake up several times during the night.
The pool is nice, that was positive and also the crew was nice , kind and helpful. They tried to make out the best out of everything.
If you want to go to a cheaper place and most of the time you plan to be out, this is a good place to be. But you have to consider the above, before deciding.
