“Nice friendly boutique hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

When we arrived we were greater Joanna with a complimentary drink given maps of the area and local bus times.
Spent most of the holiday lounging by the pool as that was most relaxing where a good range of drinks and snacks were available.
The only down sides were the small room we were at the back of the hotel onto a car park, the bathroom being so small the water went everywhere as no screen to protect and wifi was Incredibly sloooowww.
Other than that it wouldn't put me off visiting again as the staff were so friendly and atmosphere was extremely relaxing.

This is a wonderful Hotel, a little gem, for families and couples alike! The staff are amazing and very special to us - the whole Team create a relaxing atmosphere and nothing is too much trouble. Missing Thanos, Joanna and the rest of the Team already.

For those of you who haven't been - The AV offers fantastic amenities (amazing pool), and is about 100 metres to Kamari beach and the wonderful restaurants/tavernas. We look forward to returning soon.

Stayed in July 2013. Great little hotel. Helpful staff, great location and neat and tidy facilities. Good breakfast and handy snacks around the pool. Quibbles - our room was a little on the small side and there is a bit of road noise by the pool. Like the rest of Santorini it's pricey but I would definitely go again.

We booked to stay in the Acqua Vatos for a week this July after our wedding for a mini-moon ( we are planning a honeymoon over Christmas this year). On arrival we received welcome drinks and were up-graded to the most beautiful room overlooking the pool. Even without this I would fully recommend. The beach was a couple of minutes walk away as were some lovely resturants and bars. The staff at the hotel were above professional, you could not of asked for more, helpful and full of enthusiasm for the Island. They helped us with hiring a car, recommended places to visit, eat and view and always with a smile. We will be back!

Just returned from our latest stay here. Made so very welcome by the lovely Joanna and lovely Thanos! Fabulous room, well appointed and scrupulously clean. Great view of the pool. Nice to meet Eleni -another great addition to the team. Usual close attention from Joanna at the pool bar- felt rested as soon as we arrived!

Located in a good area just few minutes from Kamari beach and in the vicinity there is a bus stop from where you can go to Fiera. Staff were helpful and breakfast was really nice, every morning with different traditional food. Hotel is really modern and clean. Got only about 20 rooms so not too busy. In June it was superb as not many tourists chose this month.Pool area very relax and Baileys really worth it. Jonathan from Malta

My partner and I stayed in hotel end of June into July for 2 weeks and found the hotel in a fantastic location, very clean and modern. Both Joanna and Helena were lovely girls who worked in the hotel and were lovely and very helpful indeed. The breakfasts were very nice although the breakfast juice seemed to taste like diluting juice which wasn't very nice. There was no door on the shower which meant the floor outwith the shower was very wet each day. There were a couple of incidents with noise including one where no one in the hotel got any sleep one night due to a couple staying in the ground floor arguing for a period of time whcih was insensitve to other guests. I think it would have been a good idea if they had apologised to the hotel guests at the pool as predominantly alot of the guests did visit the pool at some point in the day. There was another incident one lunchtime when the manager was shouting and banging on a table to a member of staff which was quite frightening as I was in the hotel room at the time and my partner seen it occurring when he went down to reception. This behaviour is inappropriate and he should know better how to conduct hiimself in the position he holds. There were also people using the pool beds in a prime location at the pool for pretty much of the first week we were there who didn't even stay at the hotel which meant there were less beds for guests which didn't seem very fair for paying guests. I'm glad we picked the hotel and Kamari itself as it was a great spot to stay at and people in the resort were very friendly.
