“Amazballs!”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Our apartment was second to none. Service outstanding, and the views.....wow. We started out trip of Greece here and it set the bar high (no where else came close unfortunately) but we appreciated what we had, whilst we had it.
Well done Kamara's - i am trying to send my parents there on their OS trip next year - but i will also be back.
Well done. miss you already. xx

Room Tip: We had room 5 - undoubtedly the best !!

Stayed at Kamares Apartments as the first stop on our honeymoon and we thought it was the perfect way to start our trip. The view was incredible, breakfast was delicious and staff were friendly. Location is very convenient! Would recommend this place for sure

We stayed here three nights, and it was a dream. Location, value for money is excellent. Staff was welcoming and accomodating. The hotel wasn't fancy inside, but comfortable and most of our time was spent enjoying the Island, but when we came home, it was a wonderful, peaceful view and a great place to kick up your feet on the balcony and enjoy it all.

Room Tip: Anything with a balcony, over looking the water. It doesn't really matter.

We stayed in Kamares apartments in the begining of our Honeymoon. We visited many places after been here but nothing as amazing as Kamares and Santorini. I really recomend this place due to the perfect view, the confortable rooms and the pleasent and lovely staff. They did our stay even better than it was being.
We will go again, sure!!!!

This is a property you should consider when visiting Santorini, in terms of location and value for money. We stayed three nights there, in an appartment for three people, and we were very comfortable during our time there. Expect no luxury or great amenities, instead you will discover and soak up the amazing views from the Caldera of santorini volcano, that's one of the great rewards you will always keep from this island.

Breakfast service is ok, served in your appartament, perhaps in the terrace if you want to, enjoining the views as you take you first meal of the day (the basics such as bread, eggs, cereal, yoghurt or some dairy sweet, cheese, ham, juice, cofee or tea: pretty decent). Almost every appartment have its own outdoor jacuzzi, what is a great plus during hot weather (only cold water). We found a little bit awkward the shower, since there was no curtains because it was actually a hottub with shower... kind of weird.

I would stay here again considering the good location, comfort and value for money, but I hope to spend some nights in Oia next time!

Santorini is flush with places to stay. Many look similar and indeed many are similar. Kamares has the trademark look of white cliffside accommodation with blue woodwork that you will see everywhere. Kamares has the lovely views that many have and the clean and comfortable rooms too. So what made the difference? What made it special? Well quite simply it is the staff who exude a genuine warmth and desire to ensure you stay meets your expectation. Viya on reception could not be more helpful, cheerful and knowledgeable about how your time there could be well spent. Through no fault of the hotel there was a minor issue with rooms yet they were so concerned that our expectation on arrival had not been met that they arranged a day yacht cruise for us by way of an (unneeded) apology.
The outdoor jacuzzi's are delightful to soak in and watch the sunset. In an ideal world the terraces would be a bit more private but with only 6 rooms, you don't have many people coming and going.
Breakfast is served on your terrace in the morning - boiled eggs, greek yoghurt, toasted ham and cheese sandwich, juice, coffee. It's the same each day.
Location is great. You are a very short walk from Fira centre and there is a Carrefour supermarket two minutes from the apartments.
I would recommend renting a car, moped or ATV to get around and see the island, though local buses are plentiful.
Santorini is picture postcard beautiful. The beaches are really nothing to write home about - mostly volcanic shingle. that said, the better ones have plenty of sun loungers and bars/restaurants.
The outdoor cinema is worth a visit and if you want good local food in Fira along with good service then go to Mama's. It's a short walk from Kamares apartments.
In summary; Stunning Santorini and caring Kamares made this a dream trip for us and we would return without hesitation.

We stayed at Kamares Apartments in early June and loved every single second we were there. We were greeted at the airport and taken to our apartment and our bags were delivered to our room for us. The receptionist/manager was very pleasant and very friendly and explained to us in detail about the apartments. The only thing which could have been handy was a map but we managed to get one of these from them later on.
We stayed in apartment number 4 and loved it. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, the shower amazing; but the balcony and the view were the key - both were outstanding. We chose to have our breakfast every morning on the balcony looking out over the caldera. I must say after travelling around Europe for 5 weeks this would definitely be the best breakfast we had.
The Jacuzzi was great but we only used it a few times as it was not heated. However, after a whole day of traipsing around in the heat it was fantastic to have a refreshing dip and I imagine in July and August this would be even more the case. Many nights my husband and I sat on our balcony and watched the sunset with a glass of wine - it was fantastic. We would love to go back to Santorini and if we did we would book this apartment again without hesitation.

Room Tip: Each room has its advantages and disadvantages. I think room 4 had the best balcony and spa location...
