A wonderful surprise on this amazing and beautiful island! Due to the geography of this area, this hotel has multiple floors, steps and no elevator. We were on the same level as the breakfast terrace, so there are lots of steps to climb as we went in and out many times. Frankly, I look at it as good exercise! During... More

My wife and I stayed here back in September for 6 days and it was absolutely fantastic..! Since it's located right at the cliff, the views from here is totally stunning. We were told that this used to be Captain's house back in the days, which later got converted to a hotel. So, every single room has different layout and... More

Thank you for recommending the Hotel Kavalari in Santorini, Greece. I love the atmosphere, as it feels like a combination of old traditional Greece, with modern updates. I hope this place never changes, like so many do! The traditional aspects are what make it so wonderful. Fabulous breakfast on the terrace, and great staff! Thanks Kavalari for being a great...

We loved this hotel. Set on the cliff overlooking the Caldera, it has to be one of the most dramatic places we have ever stayed. Helpful staff, generous breakfast, spectacular setting and cool rooms (ours was carved into the side of the cliff like a cave). But.... I can see how this hotel is not for everyone. Lots of stairs...

They accessed my room without my presence and throw my luggage and other belonging on the stairs! This is not acceptable! I asked them to come and pick up my luggage at 11am, but they came earlier and did this to me before my return to the room. What's the motivation behind this? I went back to my room and... More

This is a beautiful property in a fabulous location near shopping and the bus station. Set on the side of the mountain in Fira, the views are breathtaking. Our room was on the lowest level so there were a lot of stairs which wasn't a problem for us. If stairs are a problem, request a room without many stairs, they... More

Santorini is a gorgeous island, with breathtaking views. But once the cruise ships come in, get out of town. Hotel Kavalari has a breathtaking view...except from the room we were in. We were in the very farthest room from the entrance, which meant we were tucked away, with kind of a view of the patio area..no sea view and had... More
