“The place to be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2010

We stayed 2 weeks there! It was the right spot for a wonderful vacation!
We had a great view over Kamari beach just a few steps out of our room. The friendly staff make us feel like at home. A beautiful garden and nice clean rooms.
All we needed was just around the corner, supermarket, restaurants and bars... and if you wish to have good fish just ask to the staff where to go!!

We respect the honest advertisement of the facility owner. Everything that was advertised was true and that pleased us the most.

Overlooking Kamari beach in a quiet position yet still close to all amenities.
The owner is very friendly and keeps the garden in immaculate condition.
The 5 studios all have sea views and although not luxurious are clean and nicely decorated.Highly reccomended for the price paid,and had a great time in beautiful SANTORINI before moving on to MYKONOS.

In September our son treated my husband and me to an anniversary trip to Greece and the Amalfi Coast. With the help of TripAdvisor we researched places to stay. Contrary to most TripAdvisor advice, we booked the ferries to Santorini, Crete and Rhodes ourselves and everything - hotel, ferries and schedules, were just as we planned and hoped. Studios Oceanis Bay was even better than we hoped thanks to Vagellis, who couldn't be more charming and helpful (went out of his way to help locate a credit card forgotten at a restaurant.)
It was such a pleasure to sit on our little patio and look across the lovely, prefectly tended garden to the beach and sea while other tourists passing by stopped to look over the garden wall at us with envy. This is the prettiest place on Kamari Beach.
All the glowing TripAdvisor descriptions of Studios Oceanis Bay are true. Amazing and at such a reasonable rate!

We have a great stay in this place. Everything was wonderful. Vaggelis was very kind, friendly and helpful. Received us with a bottle of wine.
The location is wonderful, very near good restaurants and still vey quiet.
The beach is in front of the rooms!!!I
If we ever get back to Santorini, we will stay in Oceans Bay Studios.

We stayed here for 4 days toward the end of May. The place is really well located at the top end of the vibrant Kamari beach promenade. It's quiet up at the top end and you get a great choice of shops & restaurants when you walk down the promenade. The studio faces directly opposite the Kamari beach - has black sand & pebbles - not the best place to go swimming but then again there aren't a lot of calm beaches around Santorini. We got a triple room and Vaggelis (the owner/manager) provided a free extra bed for our 2nd child. The studio's are neat and tidy. Kitchenette & bathroom is simple but adequate. We were on the ground floor and found that it got a bit stuffy at night - and had to resort to leaving the air-con on at night. The studio is located below the airport flight path and so we got a bit of a surprise when heard and saw these commercial & airforce planes zooming past the studios - really close too. The kids got a thrill out of it and we would always rush out whenever we heard the planes fly past to take some photos.
Vaggelis was fantastic and spoke really good English. He told us about different places to visit to see the traditional Santorini and were most helpful when our rental car got stuck in the pebbles in front of the studios. He was also very supportive and helpful when our backpack got stolen when we went to the Red Beach - he drove my husband to the police station to report the matter.
Overall we enjoyed our stay at Studios Oceanis Bay and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to stay around the Kamari beach area.

My boyfriend & I have just returned from a weeks holiday staying at the Studios Oceanis Bay in Kamari. We found the accommodation by trawling the internet, and were encouraged to book it, after reading all the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. We arrived late in the evening after organising a airport transfer with Vaggelis, the manager (this cost 15 euros). Vaggelis was there to meet us, he was most helpful and showed us places of interest to visit on the island. We had booked a double room, but were given a triple room, which was very spacious and clean. There was a kitchenette, well stocked with plates and cutlery and even had a kettle (most important for your morning cuppa!). There was air conditioning in the room, which you didn't have to pay extra for (on previous trips to Greece there has always been an extra charge for AC). The bathroom was small, the only improvement that could be made would be to have a holder for the shower head! The apartments were kept very clean, the cleaner would come in every day. We had a spacious balcony overlooking the beach and the sea. It was lovely to wake up in the morning to the sound of the waves lapping against the shore. At the front of the apartments there are beautifully kept gardens, which were often admired by the passers by. The apartments are in an ideal location in Kamari, right on the beach front, and at the end of the promenade with all the shops and restaurants. Therefore being close enough to all the amenities, but far enough away also.
Kamari is a nice resort, catering more for families and couples, we didn't see any large groups while we where there. You are spoilt for choice with all the restaurants, a lot of them offer special meal deals. We tried many of the restaurants during our stay.
At the end of our holiday, we organised a taxi transfer back to the airport through Vaggelis. When we were leaving Vaggelis' mum made sure we got the taxi ok and that there was no problems, which was very sweet. We both throughly enjoyed our holiday in Santorini, it is a beautiful island. We could not fault the Studios Oceanis Bay, and would recommend them to anyone, if we were to return to Santorini we would most definately stay there again.
