Just back from a lovely stay in Santorini. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the picturesque Santa Elena. A very peaceful hotel, the pool was deserted during the day and the hotel attracted tourists from mostly Italy as well as island hoppers. All quests were quiet and respectful of others. It is a little walk to the beach and town... More

We arrived late in the evening to be greeted by the owners Joyce & Yiannis (Johnny) and their friend Costas, who immediately made us feel 'at home'. A very interesting lady with a great sense of humour who accompanied us to our room, which was spotless. Spohie & Mama were equally lovely and all our hosts went out of their... More

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

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
