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

First, I should say that Santorini is not a great place to visit in August. Too many cruise ships and hordes of tourists following their flag-waving guides. It is picturesque but the crowds who trudged lemming-like to the end of the island to see the world famous sunset were not my cup of tea. Now, the Kavalari: It was really... More

I loved staying at kavalari hotel ! Right in the center with amazing views !!! Breakfast was amazing. The room was beautiful and clean the kitchenette was super useful for small snacks and reheating food. If you can't climb stairs stay on a higher floor bc it's a step climb. When you walk out of the hotel you are in... More

This was a great hotel with the most beautiful view of any hotel I have stayed in. The staff was super friendly and the breakfast is spectacular. The hotel itself isn't super modern, but that's ok. We weren't there to have a luxurious, overly expensive hotel experience. But the view and the service make up for the old school furnishings.... More

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
