“Away from the hubbub of Fira”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2007

Yannis and Maria Adamastos built this lovely hotel in the early 90's and we stayed there the first time in 1995. On our most recent visit we were travelling with another couple, and wanted to arrange accommodation prior to arriving by ferry the following day. A quick phone call from Athens ensured Mr. Adamastos had two rooms and would meet us at the ferry. That was just the start of their superb hospitality! We were given great rooms with large patios to take in sunrise and sunset views over vineyards surrounding the property. At the end of a day visiting other parts of the island, this place was a haven where we often cooled off in the large well-maintained swimming pool. On our last night we arranged to sample some of the two-year old wine produced by the owner, and toasted the sunset at a viewing spot near the hotel overlooking Santorini's caldera. Unforgettable!

An amazing experience on the lesser seen side of Santorini, the Adamastos hotel is a quiet, authentic setting nestled in the vineyards and history of Akrotiri. Red beach and the Byzantine ruins are just down the road and the setting is blissful, quiet and family-run. This is not a chic, cliff-side stay in Fira or Ia but moreover feels more like the true Greek experience. At least as much as you can get on an island overrun by tourists. Had a great stay and plan to stay there again. It was clean, comfortable, quiet and a true escape.

  • Liked — The quiet. The family-run atmosphere.
  • Disliked — the distance from larger cities. But buses and cabs run constantly
Stayed August 2004, traveled as a couple

The quaint Adamastos is located on the southern end of Santorini- in Akrotiri- the archaelogical centerpiece of the island. The rooms have a basic meditteranean feel and stay cool in the hot summer weather. They also each have their own private balconies which overlook arid vineyards. Another highlight of the location other than its proximity to the archaeological site is that it's near what I consider to be one of the best beaches on the island, Red Beach. (Kamari beach is my other favorite). The family who owns this pension are warm and the owner, John, speaks english. I definitely recommend the Adamastos if you're looking for a nice, affordable, and quiet place to rest your head. Oh yeah, and the bus to Fira stops right in front of the hotel, so you can get picked up and dropped off right outside. It's about a 15 minute ride to Fira.
