Excellent service provided by Dimitri and other front desk staff. Excellent views. Lovely breakfast provided. Great place to exercise as had to climb 130 steps upwards and downwards each time. Close to all the lovely local restaurants.

When we first arrived, I have to admit I was slightly disappointed in our room. We had a basic room at the very bottom of the hotel in a back corner with no view (we had just come from Mykonos at a hotel with a tremendous view of the ocean) so my expectations were high. There WAS, however a stunning... More

Hotel Kavalari is an excellent valued hotel, and I can't say enough about the staff here. First, know that this is not a luxury hotel. If you want those, you will pay far more (far, far more!) for the same view. Instead, this is an affordable hotel with a magnificent view, comfortable accommodations, an ample breakfast and wonderful people. Who... More

I was communicating with the hotel for room information, but eventually booked for an Executive room through Hotels. website as they offer a better price. When comes to check-in, we were put in a no-view room, next to the staircase. I try to explain to the reception, as we paid for an executive room, but the guy said we paid... More

The Hotel is at the perfect location, in the center of the center of the island. The staff is very friendly, the view of the bay is spectacular. The rustic interior of the rooms feels comfortable, and breakfast is good, fresh and healthy. VERY recommended!

We have stayed in Santorini before but never before on the Caldera side which is a must. We choose the Hotel Kavalari for it's location, views, and price. It was everything and more. We felt very secure & safe, as you have to go into a reception area before you are able to get to rooms. We liked this as... More

The location of this hotel is perfect, right in town on the cliff with amazing views of the Caldera. The rooms were clean and comfortable and I loved our cave shower. The breakfast was good and consistent. The staff very helpful. I was a little disappointed that it didn't have a pool but had a small cold jacuzzi which we... More
