Terrible customer service - here's an example: we asked where we get towels for the pool and we were told to go to the market and buy them! (And there is a sign in the bathroom to ask reception for towels for the pool.) Pool closes at 6:00 pm. In Santorini in July??? You have to be kidding me. Most... More

Must say was a little worried when no reviews on trip advisor for the past 2 years but what a relief. The hotel is lovely. The room is very clean and cleaned on a daily basis with fresh towels. The beds are the most comfortable I've ever experienced in Greece and the bathroom is wonderful. We have a large double... More

Having read on this Site about this hotel from other Clients it's true that I was a little worried as for what I was getting for my holiday, however fortunately for myself such negative comments proved worthless apârt from the ones concerning the food that was served up.

Personally I don't understand how anyone could write a negative review of this hotel. I don't like the pretentious cold hotels of five stars. The pool was very clean and almost private. The room was small but adequate and very comfortable beds and the pillows were not hard nor the mattress. Immaculate bathroom and room with lovely view and beautiful... More

I stayed at the Rivari Hotel in April 2010 with my wife. The hotel is nice and quiet. The woman's make clean in the room every day .Breakfast has the same high quality but they don't have any fruits. Dinner was really nice, the food was very good. The service however was lacking. Some of the waiters had an attitude... More

The resort of Kamari is pefect for couples/or families with loads of lovely places to eat & drink on the sea front. The Rivara hotel is a 10 min walks from the seafront, perfect, as not too far but enough to be secluded. The rooms are nice and clean, all sea-facing with a balcony, and the pool area is really...

Stayed for a week, with husband, son (20s) and his girlfriend. OK room with tiny shower room (though son had huge room and full bathroom with large balcony for same price). Reasonably comfortable bed (other reviewers are right about the hard pillows - take your own). Fairly good continental breakfast, with boiled eggs, tinned fruit, yoghurt, juice, croissants etc. Attractive... More

The breakfast was everyday the same thing and if you're not quick you don't get nothing so you have to wake up the earliest you can.The swimming pool... More
