We would highly recommend the Santa Elena, very very clean hotel, great hosts Joyce, John, Sofia, Costos and Mamma could not do enough for you, breakfast is more than your average continental of just bread and cheese, delish yogurt with the added extras of nuts, raisins, honey, cake, warm cheese pastries ect. Toaster and cereal with an abundance of conserves.... More

The pool, the garden, the cleanliness and especially the staff are all very inviting elements of the Santa Elena Hotel. We found Joyce, Sofia and Yianni to be extremely helpful without being pushy and very accommodating. They were like a breath of fresh air! The price was very reasonable and the location quiet but accessible. All in all I highly... More

The running of this hotel has recently been taken over by an American lady called Joyce along with Yiannis and his lovely sister Sofia (their families have been friends for years). We had an amazing holiday in Santorini and were delighted with this hotel. From the outset Yiannis and Sofia couldn't do enough for us. They work tirelessly to ensure... More

I stayed at Santa Helena in August. It was a family hotell just 5 or 10 min walk from the beach. This was truly the best service I ever had as far as I can remember. When the owner was away the mother and father took care of the guests. They were just great. The room was super clean all... More

We booked, packed, and travelled to Kamari all within 24 hours, and got a great deal. Having done very little research, we therefore considered ourselves extremely lucky to have found the Santa Elena Hotel where we had a very pleasant stay. The hotel is 5/10 minutes walk in the quiet lanes leading away from the lively town of Kamari, with... More

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. It was a reasonable price, but lacked some things I'm used to. First off, the people do not speak any english and it does create some issues.. The husband is very agreeable, but the wife is not. He is always smiling kindly and she is always cleaning. She demanded to keep my passport... More

We are both 19 year old, and decided for our first holiday abroad, we would go somewhere that seemed quite relaxed and layed back. We aren't interested in club 18-30 so when we heard about Santorini, we researched it and thought it seemed nice. There are a few different places to stay but we picked Kamari which is a beach...
