We stayed at Zephyros Hotel in Kamari during the last week of August 2012. We decided to book this hotel based on comments found on this site and on others in the same category. And we were quite excited about it and believed it will be one of the best choices, considering the fact that it was going to be our fifth Greek "experience". We only had breakfast at the hotel because we wanted to be able to experience the delicious food at the taverns. And that was the perfect decision!
Our room was on the first floor, just above the reception desk, facing the main street of the resort. And for this reason, it was really uncomfortable. No matter the time of day or night, it was noisy due to the traffic. We tried keeping the balcony door closed. It didn’t make any difference because the joinery was made of wood and didn’t offer too much noise tightness. Also, the air in the room would get quite hot. The air conditioner was oriented towards the bed and our effort to redirect the wings wasn’t of any help. We also tried sleeping with the bathroom door open, but a rather unpleasant smell came out and the water from the toiled kept on flowing. So, in terms of possibility to rest, we were unhappy with it.
The room was spacious, cleaned daily, towels changed daily, too. Bed linen changed once. Nothing to comment from this point of view. Unfortunately, our radio didn’t work. We reported this to the front desk, we were told that it will be checked, but nothing changed. Last year we stayed at Mediteranee Hotel, in Zakynthos (Tsilivi), we had a radio and it was super. The tv channels were not a better choice either. Only 4 Greek channels, one French and BBC World. Internet access was available only in the lobby via wi-fi or a hotel laptop.
As for the breakfast, it was ordinary for a 3-star hotel. There were some meats for sandwiches, feta cheese, vegetables, ever-present and delicious olives, hard boiled eggs, omelette, which was made on the spot with ingredients chosen by us, by a nice lady. And pancakes with 6-7 types of jams of which I recommend the pomegranate one. Exceptional! Of course there were cereals, milk, coffee and tea. And let's not forget the white bread. Phenomenal!!! The breakfast garden was pleasant, in the shade of trees specific to Greece and its climate. But a little bit untidy, with dried plants...
The beach, the sea, resort animation, taverns, shops... all at their best! The evening walks were our delight!
So, we returned with mixed opinions about the accommodation. Maybe we won’t go back to this hotel, but we most definitely would go back to visit Santorini, Kamari, Fira, Oia... Gorgeous island!
