We have just returned from a wonderful week at Blue Waves Hotel in Santorini. They say you cant have both a beach holiday and spectacular Caldera views but staying at Blue Waves we certainly did and managed to do beach, spectacular sunsets and caldera dining on several days. Fira is only a 15/20 minute drive from Blue Waves Hotel. The hotel staff are simply wonderful. From the warm, welcoming check in process where they escort you to your suite. (I have travelled the world and staying in 5 star resorts) the staff and service at Blue Waves is exceptional. Every member of staff greeted us every day and warmly welcomed us back to the hotel asked us where we had been and were always on hand with great advice of exactly where to go for great restaurants, the best places to visit all over the island etc. They even went to the trouble of making phone calls to check for us if a Church we wanted to visit was open. Nothing was too much trouble. Not to mention complimentary popcorn, fruit, different wines and fruit juices. The pool/bar area is lovely, my daughter loved relaxing up on the balcony area above the bar. I only wish I had taken my Yoga mat as I saw some other guests coming down from the balcony one morning after their workout. The rooms are lovely at just as shown in the hotel images. The whole hotel is beautifully maintained. The location is perfect, one road back from the beach which means that the pool and hotel are not overlooked by everyone walking along the beach front (which seems to be the case in many of the beach front hotels). 30 metres from the beach / 2 minutes stroll to lovely restaurants, 5 minutes walk to the main square. We booked airport transfers with Blue Waves both ways and again the was perfect and very reasonable. We did rent a car for 3 days and whilst the hotel doesn't have a car park, there is a large very safe free car park only 20 metres from the hotel. We can't wait to return to Santorini and Blue Waves next year. Thank you to all the staff for being so kind, and making us feel so welcome and doing everything you could to make our holiday simply wonderful.

Had a really lovely stay at Blue Waves, this was our first time to Kamari & it absolutely exceeded our expectations. The staff were so friendly and welcoming and really could not do enough to help in any way. The room was small but just enough space for two people, bathroom was lovely and clean, lovely hot showers, cleaners were round every day without fail, with clean towels and bedding etc. We really enjoyed having a drink at the pool bar in the evening after returning from a meal out, the free popcorn & nuts were very welcome. Pool area was a little crowded in the day times due to wedding parties, but is to be expected at that time of year and totally understandable. Usually waited at the pool bar and before long a bed would become available. This hotel is literally 1-2 minutes walk from Kamari beach and there are so many lovely bars & restaurants to venture to. Iron was provided on request, fridge in room, hob & safe all provided. Balcony was nice and relaxing. Wouldn’t hesitate to return.

We love Blue Waves Hotel and their villas, Secret Earth. The hospitality is top notch and although it's listed as a 2-star hotel, the accommodations and hospitality make it 5-star. I highly recommend Blue Waves Hotel as the ONLY place to stay in Santorini!

Santorini was the second and last stop of our vacation, and we couldn't have picked a better hotel to stay at. When we arrived at Blue Waves Hotel (roughly around 0830), we were greeted at the front desk and given a small history lesson of Kamari & Santorini, highlighting points of interest and the best spots for a sunset view. Our room was being cleaned (thankfully the guests before us checked out really early), and we went to the pool for our welcome drinks (thanks bar tender Mike!), and a delicious home cooked breakfast. We booked a honeymoon suite, and when we opened the door to our room, we were completely in awe. The view of the Aegean Sea was beautiful from both of our balconies, and our private, roof-top pool was the cherry on top. We quickly learned that "private pools" in both Fira and Oia, are NOT actually private because of the high volume of foot traffic around both cities. We were grateful to come home every night and enjoy our much needed calm/serene privacy. Kamari is a beautiful, mostly quiet beach town on the east side of the island. We rented a car (which we HIGHLY recommend doing if you're staying in this town) and at first, we weren't sure how to feel about the location, because it's about a 30+ minute trek to Fira and Oia. The ease of having our own vehicle was well worth the money, and allowed us to maximize our time in the various cities since waiting for the metro or taxis took quite a bit of time. The staff was very accommodating, and willing to help out any way they could - they booked several reservations for us, and gave us ideas of places to visit while on the island.
