The Hippocampus is a family-run small hotel with simple but very tidy rooms in the Greek style, a lovely pool area with a view to the mountains, and a very ample breakfast buffet. It's almost like staying at someone's private villa. I simply loved this hotel! Ask for a room away from the pool, if you want to have a... More

We were greeted later in the evening by an attentive, optimistic host. We felt like we were part of a family. The room had a comfortable king size bed and an outside patio. We were happy to see a clothes line that could be stretched across the area to dry our clothes. Everything was in walking distance; the beach, restaurants,... More

Stayed for a week in October on first visit to Santorini. Hotel is very clean and comfortable and located near sea front with beach and many restaurants a few minutes walk away. Service was very good especially from Chris. Breakfast is reasonable especially by Greek B&B standards. Wifi was free in common areas but unavailable in rooms. Good value stay... More

We stayed in the family suite which was comfortable & spacious with an outdoor patio. The hotel is less than 1 block away from the beach & super close to all of the basic necessities - bus stops, markets, restaurants & shops. Very family friendly - toys & pool gear for kids are provided. Staff are friendly & speak multiple... More

Kamari, a beautiful and small beach town on Santorini island, and somewhat tucked away from the beaten path, offers a lively, festive and friendly atmosphere to locals and visitors alike. Although quieter than Fira and Oia, still close enough for those seeking a louder night life. Somehow, I had missed this jewel on my previous visits to Santorini, but I... More

We stayed a total of 3 nights at this hotel, with our final night in a different room. Room 242 - we stayed in this room for 2 nights. Overall it's a decent room. Unfortunately the bathroom was a major let down. The shower was terrible, it had no pressure and the bracket was broken which meant we had to... More

Myself and my Husband got married in Santorini in July and we stayed in the Hippocampus. Both of our families also stayed with us and had a fantastic time. It was an absolutely amazing holiday and one of the reasons for this was because of this hotel. It was modern, clean and the staff were so friendly and helpful. I... More

To be honest I would prefer to keep this hotel our own personal secret,but for the sake of Artemis,Kostas and the rest of the staff at Hippocampus I've decided to share this little gem with you. Great location! The Hippocampus is only 30 m. from the beach,but offers a private and secluded feeling you don't get on the beachfront hotels.... More
