I stayed at the Kapari together with a friend during island hopping in May of this year and we had a truly great experience.
More specifically, I liked:
- the layout of the room (vanilla with hot tub) - all very nicely done and cave-like;
- what a view!
- extremely comfortable bed;
- very friendly service;
- great quality of breakfast;
- good bottle of wine as present upon arrival
- excellent approach to service: we stayed there during the Champions League final - as the programmed TV did not show the match, the hotel owner used a meeting lounge for setting up a TV with the right programme and staff was serving drinks and refreshments for free - excellent! On top of it, the owner watched the match together with the guests - felt almost like being guest of the family.
Room for improvement:
- I sometimes felt a bit sorry for the very friendly lady having to serve the breakfast almost alone - it might make sense to hire a second staff member to help her?
- The hot tub in the bathroom has the (unwanted) side effect that the whole room gets extremely hot when leaving the bathroom door open. The aircon is not able to work against the power of the hot tub. At the same time, the issue is solved when leaving the bathroom door closed. Maybe it would be possible to install a switch, allowing guests to choose whether they want to have a hot jacuzzi or not?
Otherwise, I really like the hotel and would seriously consider staying there again, should I return to Santorini.
