After a major search to find the perfect hotel in Kamari, we chose the Epavlis due to the fantastic reviews, and we were so very happy we did!
This small boutique hotel has roughly only about 40 rooms, it is very clean and stylish with very friendly staff. as it is so small you really get to know everyone who works and is staying there! Most of the coach from Thomas Cook was for this hotel!
The rooms a very airy and a beautiful romantic style. We paid extra for a sea view which I would highly recommend, room 103 is a perfect view, and as it is above the reception it is lovely and quiet!
The pool area is lovely and clean, and as it is so small there is never a real fight for beds. Also the pool bar food is a great price. it only does pizza, toasties or salads, but they are a great price and does this till 11pm. We had a lovely pizza and Greek salad for dinner one night, and it was a lot cheaper than going down the front!
The location of the hotel is brilliant, please be warned it is up quite a steep hill, but it really only takes two minutes and your at the beginning of Kamari. This in fact is a pure blessing as you up that little bit away, you are not under the aeroplanes flying over, and you don't get all the noisy bikes and quad bikes driving past, like the poor people in the hotels and apartments in the heart of Kamari.
I would say one thing, and this is with regards the whole of Santorini, there is a lot of dogs roaming around, all quite friendly and don't bother you, but please be aware of this if you have a phobia of dogs as you may not like it too much. Being someone who isn't that too keen on dogs, I have to admit they didn't bother us, and if anything I made names for them as they were always about. We found this all over the Island, The only one issue we had was in Oia when a dog started getting a bit angry and barking which was quite unnerving.
All in all we loved this hotel and would go back in a heartbeat! Kamari is such a sweet little resort and we enjoyed it very much!
