“Very friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Just returned from a one week stay at this hotel. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we stepped out of our taxi. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating.

The rooms are simply furnished but are very clean and comfortable. The breakfast is simple but good - our only criticism is that it would have been nice to have a choice of fruits in addition to melon but this only a minor point. The pool area is good and very clean with large double sun beds with pillows. I think they were the most comfortable sun beds I've ever used.

A short walk takes you into the town of Kamari where you can find many good bars and restaurants.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.

Other reviewers have so eloquently reviewed Hotel 28 there almost seems like you could add nothing more, but I will add a few more superlatives to the many already. Amazing, amazing and amazing again. A couple of personal experiences..prior to our trip I had planned to propose to Karen but, having never been to Santorini before, was unsure where to do this, best location etc. Following email and then face to face discussions my plan was hatched, told Aggy and then on our return from my proposal on the cruise ship(thankfully she said yes!), we found a complimentary bottle of chilled champers in our room, together with a lovely note from all the staff. A wonderful touch. The following morning at breakfast Aggy then excitedly told the rest of the guests and we were made to feel very special. Thank you Aggy!! Dimi and Joanna make up the amazing team looking after you and all the other guests, making everybody feel equally special. When Karen was taken ill towards the end of the holiday she was given a specially made soup to aid her recovery, whilst being doted on by Aggy and Dimi, just like 2 nurses, throughout the day. So for us, like many before, and am sure many after, Aggy, Dimi and Joanna you made our holiday in Santorini very, very special and we thank you. A big thanks also to our cleaning lady, always cheery and always a spotless room. And Spiros thanks for running the ship so well and your amazing 'Sex on the beach'! drink of course! First job when we arrive back in the UK? Book 2014 holiday to Hotel 28, Santorini!!

My fiancee and I loved our stay at 28. It was a wonderful experience. The staff were always friendly, professional and regularly went the extra mile to make us feel super comfortable.
The hotel itself is spotless, it has a really nice pool (towels, double sunbeds and floating Bean bags provided) and the Bar provides a great range of great food and drinks.
A really pleasant environment to holiday in we never felt anything but relaxed.
The big selling point of this place though is the high quality of customer service provided by the girls who run the hotel, Aggy, Dimi and Joanna all were fantastic from the moment we arrived to helping us put our bags onto the coach home. They are an absolute credit to the place and were a big part in making our holiday so special.

We stayed at 28 in July 2013 for a week, and fully intend to stay there again! The hotel is beautifully designed; very simple with super-stylish colours and furniture and everything easily accessible. The pool area is the most stylish, relaxing space with double-bed sun loungers and floating beanbags and a bar with restaurant-quality light meals and a great variety of cocktails.
The hotel's stars are undoubtedly the staff; the housekeepers and chef are friendly and their work is of a high standard, but the three girls Dimi, Aggi and Ioanna are true gems, working hard to make everyone's holidays as relaxing as possible, all with a genuine sense of kindness and fun. They really make the hotel very special indeed and it is clear that many return visitors are drawn back by the staff. A truly brilliant holiday in every way!

Five years ago we stayed a week at Hotel 28. It was a stay like nothing we had ever experienced at a holiday resort before. So ever since, we've been dreaming of comming back to Santorini in general and this hotel in particular. This year we did, going by ourselves, as Hotel 28 is no longer in the Norwegian charter catalogues. We were met by 2 friendly, open, welcomming girls who even had prepared a little welcome surprise for us! Later came Argiro (hurrah!) - who we immediately recognized from our first stay. And for the rest of our 2 week stay, her smile and laughter met us at breakfast every morning. These 3 girls are so helpful, firendly and smiling - to everybody - that they alone will make you want to come back! Nothing is a problem, everything is fixed, their advice is always sound, whether it regards restaurants, bicycle hire, transport etc. Hotel 28 is in a quiet area, 6 mins walk from the beach, secluded pool area with a bar, free beachtowels, nicely decorated rooms. What more can we say, except that: We'll be back! Ole & Tone, Voss, Norway

Room Tip: Rooms at the back gives you the evening sun, and may be quieter.

If you are looking for a simple, stylish and utterly delightful small hotel on this beautiful island, look no further. It has everything that is necessary to enjoy a holiday in the sun. The staff are exceptional and certainly add significant value to the holiday experience. If we ever return to Santorini we would never consider staying anywhere else.

We thought that by coming back to this wonderful hotel & island we would get it out of our system. But no, if ever a place was an addiction this is it!
The hotel is simple,some would say spartan, keeping the prices down, but this is far outweighed by other factors.
It is near enough to the resort of Kamari to be but a 10 minute walk to the beach,restuarants etc but far enough away into the countryside to only be woken in the morning by the crowing of the cockeral & bleating of the goat. Yes the flight path into the airport is near but not really a hinderance & its closeness allows you to spend even longer at the paradise of 28.
Yes there are faults. The plumbing is temperamental so, on getting the temperature right in the shower, be prepared for a quick leap out when the temperature changes. There are no rails or hooks, which amused us as a sign advised to hang up towels to help the environment! A reviewer criticised the food for not being Greek enough. I feel this is unfair. Yes its simple but what could be more Greek than the wondeful yogurt & honey which became our staple? The short poolside menu, apart from some international dishes had wonderful salads that provided the true essence of Santorini.
But,& its been mentioned over & over again, its the holy trinity of Agyro,Dimitra & Johanna that make Hotel 28 unique. Their gift of making every guest feel special is truly God-given. Agyro,the font of all knowledge, greets you at breakfast, truly concerned that where she sent you for dinner is ok. Johanna waves you off in the evening &, like a concerned mother, is there to check all is well on your return.Dimitra, with a voice as sexy as a young Melina Mercouri, serves you with warmth & concern beyond words.Oh & when you leave, just to heighten the emotion of your departure, they run to hug you farewell. I think its a joke on the island that an extra 10 minutes has to be allowed for coach & taxi pick-ups
