    Room was clean, the pool was great, breakfast was excellent. The entire property is beautiful and very well kept. We visited with our 1.5-year-old child and they had a port-a-crib already set up in our room upon arrival. The bus stop is about a 5-minute walk and takes you to Fire where you can then get to anywhere you need to go on the island. The beach is only a 10-minute walk away and has tons of beachside restaurants to choose from. We loved our stay and hope to return someday!

    Wifi strength in the room was not that strong compared to common areas like swimming pool.A bit far from city centre Fira but if you are renting ATV or Car its at superb location.

    Rooms were very clean and beautifully managed.Very cooperative staffs.Breakfast was very good.Kamari beach at 10mins walking distance.And don’t miss the morning sunrise there its better than sunset in Oia.Lots of good eating options are available near to the Hotel

    Bit of a distance from the centre of Kamari, ok going down but coming back was a slog as it was on an incline. Nothing going on in or around the hotel. Pool bar very small and not a lot of choice.

    The hotel was very clean and the owners very friendly. Breakfast was basic but nice. The rooms had a fridge and a safety deposit box free of charge as was the aircon. The swimming pool was clean and a good size.

    The breakfast selection could have been more varied.

    The location was the best thing about this hotel, it was a short walk to the sea front where there are many restaurants and shops as well as being within driving distance (maximum 25mins) away from the other main towns on Santorini. The room and the hotel in general were extremely clean.

    Linens were clean and changed daily. They are dried outside and smell very nice however sometimes a little rough as they are not tumble dried. This is the smallest of "problems" considering that the hotel was amazing.
