To be honest, this is just an average budget range hotel that happens to be in one of the most desirable locations in the world. Everybody is friendly and helpful, the breakfast is great, and the view is beyond description, but the beds are average at best, the rooms are small, tattered, and smell of mildew. The hot water has... More

My husband and I stayed one night. 5 stars for location, views and staff, 3 stars for accommodations. The location is superb - the hotel is a 5-10 minute walk from the taxi and bus stands and right in the heart of Fira, a perfect jumping off point to explore the area. The hotel /room views are true to the... More

If you want to feel like you are in Santorini and want to enjoy the feeling of the island I can't recommend a better hotel. The prices are reasonable and the included breakfast is excellent. The view is worth a million dollars !

We stayed in Kavalari for few days to attend a wedding. The experience was amazing from start to end. We have booked a superior room with a balcony. I can't describe how useful the balcony was especially during sunrise and sunset. The room was worth the money. The location of the hotel is just perfect and in the middle of... More

Kavalari is an amazing hotel! Great decoration even better than the pics. Great positive energy. Amazingggg view with the most beautiful terrace! Breakfast is great and the staff are really helpful. As for location it's the best. Right in the middle of fira town yet so calm and peaceful. Its hugely recommended

Value for money, fantastic location, awesome views, great staff - what more could you ask for! We loved the fact that you could have the amazing sunset views without the crowds. The rooms are comfortable, although not as modern or up market as some of the others nearby, they provide a unique hillside cave experience which we loved. We were... More

The location is ok, as for all the "caldera view" hotels, but the service is lame. 20 minutes to get breakfast, only one people to manage ALL the customers (three empty tables on the photo, waiting to be served since 20 min at 9.50!). Without speaking of the bathroom : NO HOT WATER, you have to switch on a water... More

Kavalari really upset us. the position is very good for fira but is it really not worth staying in Santorini in a hotel without a pool at the prices of kavalari. Breakfast very limited and the rooms are not very nice. Very loud sounds coming from a parrot in the kitchen. I Would not choose kavalari should i go back... More
