“Excellent and friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012 via mobile

Me and my wife got married in santorini in may 2012. We contacted the boat house after hearing lots of recommendations, spyros arranged everything from the wedding venue to the reception. As well as this he organised transport to and from the airport for our party as well as to the wedding venue. The boat house was immaculate we stayed in the honeymoon suite and it was cleaned throughly everyday and was a really nice room. There was clean beach towels everyday and breakfast was nice. Spyros and Diane were wonderful hosts during our stay we would recommend the boat house to everyone

Just Fantastic.

I have just returned from Staying at The Boathouse and all I can say is what a fantastic Hotel. Myself and my partner were travelling with 64 guest as we were getting married. Diane and Spyros are just the most welcoming hosts they truly made our stay more enjoyable and could not have been more accommodating. As you can imagine 64 guest all travelling together could be very demanding but there wasn’t one person in our party that didn’t have a fantastic time all of them will be returning to Santorini and all of them will be staying at The Boathouse.

We personally can not thank them enough for making our Wedding week perfect and we cant wait to go back.

If you are thinking of staying in this hotel go for it you will not regret it.

I went to the boat house with my best friend last summer and it was absolutely wonderful! The beds are comfy, rooms are clean, food is fantastic and the family who owns the hotel are absolutely wonderful. There were some very memorable nights spent at the bar chatting to them. It has amazing friendly atmosphere and there is always a smiling face ready to great you or laughter around the bar / pool. The family running the hotel also gave us amazing insight into where to go, things to do, what to try and eat which made the trip hugely worth while.

You can tell it is a place that people enjoy time and time again because although it was my first stay, many of the others staying there had been coming for vacations there for the past 10 years.

First visited the Boathouse in August 2006 and have returned every year - last year we even went twice and we are looking forward to two visits this year too. The pool / bar area is lovely and relaxing - the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing breakfast. Breakfast is great with a wide choice of food. The fresh fruit salad and greek yogurt with honey are amazing! The hotel is just across the road from the beach and this end of the beach is fairly quiet and peaceful. The owners and staff are extemely friendly and go out of their way to make you feel at home. Rooms are comfortable and very clean.

Been back twice and have already booked for a third year. This is a family run hotel that you just cannot find anywhere else. Fantastic pool and bar area - great friendly people and children friendly ! Rooms are comfortable and all you need in Greece... we truly love this hotel, and it has made it hard to book anywhere else. Beers are always cold - cocktails are tall and colourful and you are walking distance from everything.. restaurants, banks, car and bike hire, shops, beaches and bus stops. Kamari beach is the best part if the island and I will keep returning year after year !

Room Tip: Garden suite for families and the honeymoon suite if you want a treat - but honestly all rooms are l...

Kamari Beach in Santorini is the perfect combination of relaxtion and fun! We had a 17 person group travel with us to celebrate our wedding. All our guests stayed at The Boathouse and absolutely fell in love with the hotel and the staff. This was our second time staying at The Boathouse and we can't wait to go for a third time. Our friends and family are all planning another trip to Santorini and none of them would dream of choosing another hotel to stay at! The hotel is clean, the staff is friendly, passionate, and loving, the food at Almyra's and Ya-mas (the hotel restaurants) is incredible, and the personal attention from Spyros (The owner), Dianne (The Owner), Barbara, Anna, Kelly, and Agili is unbeatable. The hotel is run by people that truly love what they are doing and they will not stop at anything to make your stay unforgetable. The rooms are large, clean, and tastefully decorated. The Honeymoon Sweet is absolutely gorgeous and romantic - perfect for any wedding or anniversary! You could certainly find a more expensive hotel to stay at, but I would challange anyone that told me they found a better hotel than the Boathouse to stay at.

As I said we celebrated our wedding there, and Diane could not have been more helpful getting everything booked - offering us alot of great tips while we were planning the wedding from Canada! Thank you Diane! Spyros, Kelly, Barbara, Anna, and Agili went over and above anything I ever expected to make our wedding day/week magical. We had a fairytale wedding in Santorini because of them. Thank you! You treated us like family. We were so glad that we could celebrate with all of you - you truly are family to us! The personal touch that the Boathouse gave us was truly a display of the love they have for what they do.

Alymra Restaurant (where we had our reception) is the best restaurant we have found on the island. The food quality is impecable, the staff and service are exceptional, and the value is great. Christos and Spyros have a gem in this restaurant. Imagine eating at a high quality greek restaurant on a beach (literally the sea is 5 meters from the covered patio) with great service and unbeatable value. This is Almyra. I would have eaten there every night if I didn't think it would have been wrong for me not to have tried somewhere else.

Kamari Beach is by far the best city in Santorini to stay. You have a strip - that is pedestrian only - on beach level (the only town on the island that is at sea level) that has shops, night clubs, restaurants, bars, and hotels (the only hotel to stay at is The Boathouse). Stay in Santorini and visit the other cities on the island during the day or evening. It is so easy to get around the island as it is so small. You can easily drive the whole island in a day, although it will take much longer to truly explore all the treasures Santorini has to offer.

Room Tip: Get a Seaview Room. Nothing Better than letting the cool Mediteranean Breeze in your room at night.

We stayed there for 3 nights, and were thinking about cancelling the rest of our tour just to stayed there! Very friendly staff, nice area, clean pools and a very cozy room! Would definitely come back!
