We stayed here three years ago and wrote a favourable review here on tripadvisor after our stay. We returned to Kamari this July, and stayed here for five nights. We enjoyed our stay overall, but when we return to Santorini again we will give another hotel a go. The good: We had a HUGE balcony that overlooked kamari beach, which... More

Quick review, but few words paint a bigger picture. Charming staff, warm welcome and so friendly throughout our stay-even bringing us homemade cake and putting up with our little one decorating the courtyard daily with her toys and hairbands (plus stick a welcome bottle of wine and snacks in my apartment I'm won over). Clean and on trend shabby chic... More

It had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, hair dryer, fridge freezer and facilities to self cater if needed. The balcony... More

We have visited Santorini many times and we were very pleased of this hotel. Very friendly staff, very clean rooms with nice decoration and very comfortable mattress. The hotel is right in front of Kamari beach with many restaurants to choose. Good wifi connection. We recommend it without doubt!

This was our first visit to Santorini and we were impressed with the El Mar Villas, they were kept scrupulously clean, clean bedding and towels every day, the resort itself had plenty of places to eat, recommend Prince's just for the mussels alone!, we are beachy people so this was somewhat of a let down black sand it wasn't black...

Really impressed by kind and warm atmosphere of this hotel. It's very closed to the beach and we could enjoy beautiful sunrise every morning from our terrace. Big, clean and very well designed studio has all you need for comfortable staying. Great service and very helpful staff.

The studio was very spacious, extremely clean and full of details with a very good taste.It had two separate areas: a big and comfortable bed and a cosy living room with kitchen facilities. It had also a lovely balcony with sea views: the perfect place to... More

El Mar exceeded our expectations. Despite being quite basic we had everything we needed - own terrace, kitchen, big living room and all that conveniently located just 2 minutes from the sea. The accomodation felt like our own private apartment and offered great flexibility. Although El Mar only has 2 stars, it offered more than we expected and we enjoyed... More

On our arrival the staff were very friendly and helpful and our check-in took no time at all. Our studio was very clean and comfortable with good quality white sheets and soft, fluffy towels which were changed very regularly. Also a bottle of cold drinking water was in the fridge. Even though we were close to the beach and tourist... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 6 nights in June 2011, and what a great value for the money!! Our room was extremely spacious and very clean. We had a living room separate from our bedroom, and the bathroom even came with a shower curtain (a rarity in Greece)! The front desk staff were very helpful - our air... More
