Score from 66 reviews Very good
This hotel stay was nice with attentive staff. Internet connection OK, breakfast OK, less than 2 mins walk from bus stop (very reliable and easy to use), shops, rental cars and less than 5min walk from beach. Nice pool.
the room was very nice, breakfast was good and staff was helpful. The swimming pool was good too
Friendless of staff, and most informative on information required to see all of the island! The bedroom clean airy and nicely decorated. I loved the murals on the walls! It was lovely having breakfast beside the pool.
Wifi was only available at reception and around the pool, not a major problem.
The location, staff and cleanliness of the hotel were excellent. The services were more than adequate.
The shortage of on site parking. I had to use the nearby public parking.
The Hippocampus was a pleasant surprise. It is located a few meters from the Kamari beach, away from the hordes of tourists lurking in Fira and Oia. The staff was friendly and nice (a highlight must be given to Dora!), with good indications of what to see and do in Kamari and the rest of the island. The room was confortable with a nice bathroom and shower and the breakfast, by the swimpool, was excellent.
Beautiful room and gardens
Clean and big toilet Comfortable bed 5mins walk to Kamari Beach
Great location near restaurants and other activities. Bus stop around corner. Neat, clean, comfortable room. Helpful staff, good breakfast. And, a well-maintained swimming pool that is large enough to do laps.
Very helpful staff ( mother and daughter). Close to the action, but still pretty quiet at night. Parking very close by hotel. Breakfast OK. Liked the less touristy feel than the caldera side of island.
Not staying longer. Obviously, no sunset!
This was our third visit to this lovely hotel. It is always spotlessly clean and well maintained. This season it has added a fabulous bar, outside seating area, reception and breakfast room. The rooms have excellent beds (which are quite a find in Greece!) and a great bathroom with fully enclosed shower. The pool is a very tranquil area with plenty of sun beds, large brollies and trees for shade. The best thing of all is the family and their staff that run the hippocampus. They are always there to offer help and a wide range of information with genuine care for their customers needs.
This hotel was a wonderful experience. Very beautiful, clean, well run family hotel. The freshly renovated room was beautifully decorated and spotless. Everything was of a high standard and the owners were really friendly. The location is excellent, just 50 meters from the beach. The pool area was clean and well-kept and there, I have experienced one of my best massages ever !!!, by the pool, by Maria, the daughter of the owner!!! If you stay at the hotel, do not forget to ask for a massage session from Maria!!! Her energy, inner peace & massage skills will sock you! Overall this was a great place for my weekend’s September escape. I didn't want to leave.
the beds are very comfortable. Friendly staff and great location
Location staff breakfast pool bar room view
We arrived to friendly receptionist who was welcoming and recommended several good beaches and restaurants. Throughout our stay the atmosphere was calm and friendly and the family who run the hotel were very attentive and made numerous bookings for us. The pool is big compared to other hotels and very clean. The outside space is light and pretty and feels quiet, relaxed and secluded even though the beach and main street are both only one block away, the bar is reasonably priced for santorini. The room was big and had a lovely large balcony overlooking the pool and the sea, huge hot shower, and comfy beds. All kept spotlessly clean. The breakfasts are huge and very tasty all local foods. We visited several friends hotels who had paid for 'luxury' hotels and could not find anything better than hippocampus.
We could not fault it. Lovely.
Pool area, staff, location
Breakfast was a bit light Had a musty smell in room
Staff were very friendly and helpful. The pool was great and rooms/hotel were always very clean. Very close to the beach.
No phone in the rooms. Breakfast was not very good. No other complaints.
Well taken care of
Need more internet routers near the rooms
Location friendly and easy going view from room quiet and very close to the beach resp. beach - road nice and clean rooms very friendly staff we were feeling good and very comfortable during our stay
no children s area in Swimming pool so maybe not the best Hotel for families with very young kids.
Thanks Dora for her help in arranging taxis. Big room. Cleaning was good.
Price was not very aligned with the service and quality of the hotel. No pick up from port whereas all the hotels provided this in other hotels. No phone in the room. Shower was ultra small. No toasted bread at breakfest
From the minute we arrived at reception it was the Greek way .just enjoy Santorini we were told go and eat we will sort paperwork another time nobody asked us for this during our stay . Lovely fresh food for breakfast one of the nicest eating areas in a hotel next to the pool or indoors choice is yours. The pool was perfect temperature that didn't take your breath away when you got in the water which is unique. Nothing too much trouble would reccommend to everyone book now or your missing out on one of the loveliest hotels on the island . Location wise superb .
We had to come home
The management & staff are very friendly and helpful. Big thanks to Dora & her husband for making our stay so enjoyable. The family room (No. 130) has two separate rooms with regular changes of linen, etc and is cleaned daily. Hotel pool is quite large by comparison to others we saw and visited. The only drawback being the space around the pool is limited but did not really cause any issues. The beach is less than 100yds from the hotel entrance which has sun lounges but you do have to pay for them at most but get service to your lounger.
Can be noisy sometimes at the pool if a noisy car or bike go by but generally is peaceful. Aircon can keep you awake as is too cold and then too warm. Difficult to strike happy balance but having travelled extensively on business, this is aircon units generally. Best setting is 25.
Good staff & facilities. Location is good close to beach area. Very accommodating with late departure from Santorini
Breakfast was average Room had a very musty sort of smell all the time
Love the hotel, the rooms are perfect and shower/bathroom spacious .
