We went to Santorini as part of a wedding party, a few of our friends were staying in much more expensive spar hotels. But I have to say, surprisingly, the hippocampus was much nicer. So for the money it's certainly the best. The entire hotel is kept so well, the rooms were always clean and look freshly decorated. The pool... More

My partner and I stayed here for a week, as well as 12 other family and friends that same week, as my sister was getting married on the island. The hotel is a lovely family run business, Artemis and all the staff are so friendly, and nothing seemed too much trouble. The bedrooms are spacious and cleaned daily, breakfast was... More

Only stayed 1 night but it was a really lovely one. This hotel located 1 block away from the beach and lots of nice restaurants. 1 block away from the public bus stop that takes you to Fira (20min) and Oia (35min away) on modern, a/c buses. Hotel staff is helpful. Hotel room was clean, IKEA furnished. A/c worked well,... More

I went to Hippocampus for only 1 night last week. I wish it was longer. The hotel is very nice, 20 meters from the Kamari beach and the shopping and restaurant area. 1 min from the bus stop to any place you like for 1.6 euros. Hotel is veryy clean, breakfast was really good. Rooms are very nice. What makes... More

We only have positive things to say about this hotel. We chose this hotel for ourselves and our wedding guests. All were very happy with our choice, as we're we. The location was excellent, rooms were cleaned every day. They were spacious and modern. Staff were helpful and polite. It's great that they offer a complimentary airport pickup/drop off service....

Just returned from the Hippocampus after a 10 night holiday. The hotel is spotlessly clean from top to bottom. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are more than adequate with a good size shower. Beds are comfy as well. Breakfast, although the same buffet every day is a lovely fresh continental spread. The hotel is a one... More

We would definately recommend the Hippocampus Hotel as it is the best in Kamari. The location of this hotel is less than a minute away from the beach and there are many restaurants, bars and shops nearby. The hotel is newly refurbished, very clean, nice size rooms, and comfortable and is family run. Excellent breakfast. Our room was lovely as... More

This hotel was located about a block off the beach but there aren't many places much closer, buildings are not allowed on the beach. Little restaurants have their seating on the beach and several of the other hotels I saw across the walkway from the beach were in a much more crowded area being on the walking path. If you're...

The room was very fresh and clean, very nicely and tastefully done - all blue and white, to go well with the other Santorini surroundings! Nice breakfast and very helpful and cheerful owner and staff. The Kamari beach is hardly a 5 min walk from the hotel.The bus stop is also very near to the hotel, with buses going to... More
