We've just returned from this hotel where we had a 2 night stay whilst visiting the island for a wedding. We were very pleased with the hotel, especially for the price. It is very well cared for and the staff were helpful and friendly. Rooms were basic but very clean. Our room had a nice modern bathroom, although other rooms hadn't been updated. Breakfast was limited but sufficient. Pool area small but clean and a nice view out to the sea. We stayed in room 6 which had a nice pool and sea view.
Unfortunately though we felt the hotel was lacking in atmosphere and very quiet and it felt like chatting and laughing amongst our small group of friends was not appreciated! We had a number of comments and stern looks whilst chatting round the pool in the day. And also complaints that we were talking too loudly when coming back to the hotel at night. We took this on board and made sure we whispered the following night but still got shouted at! We were by no means being rowdy, just a few friends chatting and enjoying some time together. So I would suggest if you like to talk or laugh whilst on holiday it might not be the hotel for you. I also can't imagine children would be appreciated there. I have 2 small kids who luckily weren't travelling with me at the time and it's definitely not somewhere I would take them as I would worry about them disturbing the other guests peace. All in all a nice little hotel which would be great for couples and those wanting a very very quiet holiday but not ideal for groups of friends or families.

Dear guests

Thank you for your valuable review but allow me to make one remark. I believe that the fact that several guests complaining to you directly or through the reception for being too noisy is not so relevant with the content of the review to the hotel and the rating. I feel that you are reviewing more the other guests rather than the hotel itself. In any case you know that we respect your point of view and we do all our guests and we tried to make your stay as more as comfortable

With friendly regards

We were a party of four and all agreed it was a pretty tepid atmosphere at the Kalimera. The room my partner and I were allocated was we felt a single room with a double bed (one side had to be against the wall). The wardrobe was single and the bathroom, although newly renovated, was tiny. The owners have a couple of, albeit friendly, dogs that are allowed to 'beg' around the breakfast tables... they were removed when we complained. The hotel is very clean with a nice swimming pool. There is a bus stop directly outside the Hotel which is very convenient.

We have just spent two weeks staying at this hotel. We cannot praise it highly enough. The rooms were spotless and cleaned every day.

The food is excellent and the service is impeccable. The staff could not be friendlier and nothing is too much trouble.

There is a lovely buffet breakfast each morning to set you up for the day.

The hotel is quiet and the pool is beautiful . The gardens are kept in amazing condition and on lazy days a day by the pool is idyllic.

It's close to two good tavernas and a fifteen minute walk to akrotiri beach wher you can get water taxis to other good beaches. The bkack beach is great.

Car hire is easy and the hotel will organise this for you. A bus stop is right outside the hotel if you want to go to Thira.

We will be coming back to Santorini and we will be staying here. It is truly perfection.

The room was delightful and the family that runs the place was invariably kind and helpful. The rooms are pleasant and spotless. The pool is lovely. The hotel is right across the street from a bus stop for a bus that goes to Fira the island's capital. The hotel is just a few minutes' walk to the "downtown" area of Akrotiri, a small village. There are a couple nice restaurants there.
