“Great Hotel, wonderful family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

First to squash the bad reviews -
1/ the owners don't speak English very well but the sons and daughter do and they are on hand to help with any problem.
2/ there are no hidden extras any more, they used to charge for a/con and safes but that has changed, what you book is what you pay.
Now that i have that out of the way the hotel is lovely it has a well kept pool and enough sun beds to go around. the location could be a problem for small children as it is 5-10 min walk from kamari center but for anyone else its fine and in some ways nice to have a pool which has no on lookers all day.
The breakfast is basic but it is fine especially for what you pay.
Tripadvisor lists this hotel as a 2* but it is definitely better than that.
i have known the family for 14 years now and every time we go back we are instantly welcome and are made to feel like part of the family. i would recommend this hotel to anyone but take a push chair for young kids. (my arms were aching from carrying my lazy 2 year old)

Another worthy mention is the greek nights (see this link http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attraction_Review-g658914-d4355603-Reviews-Greek_Nights_Tavern_Dimitris-Kamari_Santorini_Cyclades.html) it is alot of fun for all the family, the music is fantastic and done by the hotel owners sons. The food is great and if you book through the hotel directly and not the reps its cheaper and you get more wine (win, win)

This was our fourth trip to santorini and the third time staying at Dimitris.This family run establishment is situated about a ten minute walk from the front which makes it very peaceful through the day (there is some aircraft noise now and again)and is a very good base to stay.The family of Dimitris,poppy(supermum),andreas,maria and bobby are very attentive and helpful and you always get a no problem to any request.Friday and sunday nights are very lively with the live music and greek dancing, along with the food which is excellent.Overall we once again had a brilliant time and cant wait for the next time.

Room Tip: Any room at Dimitris is a good room but the rooms at the back are cooler due to the fact they are no...

Just returned from another brilliant holiday at Dimitris
We have now stayed here on 3 occasions & would not stay anywhere else in Santorini.
This Taverna / accommodation is very traditional & just what you would expect in Greece
The family are so welcoming & go out of their way to look after you during your stay.
The Traditional Greek nights here are brilliant & all the music is played by this very talented family, Andreas & Bobby, with Greek dancing & plate throwing.
The food here is excellent too & cooked by Poppy who knows how to look after you
This is situated just outside of the main centre of Kamari, about a 10 minute walk into town, where there is plenty of Taverna's, bars all facing the sea.
The scenery in Santorini is breath taking, this is a must see.
See you again soon
Billy & Angela

The Villas Dimitris is more than just the title. It has rooms, a taverna and they put on great Greek Nights. We have been before and it just seems to get better and better, This is a family run business and they are all very friendly and could not be more helpful. Poppy is the wife of Dimitris and says she cooks "mama food".. good typical Greek food. In my opinion they serve the best food in Kamari... they have a large garden behind the taverna and all the food comes from there. The Greel Nights are great fun with exceptional musicians... especially the bouzouki player, Andreas...just go and he will amaze you with his skills... You can tell from this that we really love this little hidden jewel in Kamari..

We stayed here for one night before our island hopping trip and got an excellent price booking through Travel Republic - less than £15 for the room in June. Wasn't sure what to expect for the money but was very pleasantly surprised. The studio was very clean and spacious and excellent value for money. The pool looked really nice though we didn't get chance to try it out. The owners were very friendly and arranged a taxi transfer to the port for the following morning. The accommodation is slightly out of the centre of Kamari but only a short walk from the beach and there is the Dimitris taverna just a few minutes walk away. The only negative was the noisy neighbours who woke us up coming in at 3am.

I have been here twice now and I love it.the location is great as it is set back from the main strip so is lovely and peaceful during the day but only a short walk (5-10mins) on an evening to go to the bars or restaurants. That said the food at dimitris is absolutely gorgeous -poppy is a great cook, her tomato balls are to die for! All home made proper greek food. The rooms are all you need for a self catering holiday and I have heard they have been refurbished so can't wait to see them next time I visit. Andreas is a great host along with poppy and dimitris his parents always feel at home and lovely to have a chat with them on an evening when enjoying a drink at the bar or food at the restaurant. Would not stay anywhere else in santorini. Will hopefully see you next year Andreas xxx Laura and Danny xxx

very good servise, nice quiet hotel far from the citys noise but 15 minutes walk away from kamari city. spacius room with balcony, you can relax at the pool with a cocktail, if you go to santorini i recoment to rest a car and travel around in the reception they can advise you where to go and how.

Room Tip: rooms at the buttom lever are more cool.
