Reviewed August 25, 2013

We stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks in August, from the moment we arrived both Tina and George were so friendly and treated you like you had known them for years. We stayed in room 205 which had a double bed and a sea view and view of the pool. The hotel is so clean and the room was cleaned each day. The breakfast is served from 8 till 11 most days we didn't get down till 10.50 and this wasn't a problem at all. The breakfasts were very nice all homemade, much better than having a full English fry up each morning like you would in other European resorts. Throughout our stay Tina and George advised us on everything to do on the island from quad bike hiring to the best places to watch the sunset. Do try santo wines for the sunset it is lovely and very cheap! The quad hire was one of the best things we did and we toured the island on it, the roads a quite safe. During our stay we had no electricity for a few days and the water was on and off due to the power station fire but because of Tina and George caring so much about their guests we didn't notice too much, they did everything they could to help, the way the hotel was lit up by candlelight was lovely. Kamari itself is a lovely area with lots of nice cocktail bars and some great restaurants, do go to Metaxi max if you can, it's up in the mountains and such good food and value. Tina also provided transfers to and from the airport that was included in the price. The hotel is on a quiet street afew minutes walk from the beach, some days there was only my husband and I by the pool for most of the day and there was always sunbeds free no matter what time of day you went to the pool. If you are going to Kamari don't hesitate and book this hotel, it does get filled up very quickly. DON'T BOOK WITH AN AGENT CONTACT TINA DIRECT AND BOOK DIRECTLY WITH THE HOTEL!!
Thanks again Tina and George for our great 2 weeks holiday, we hope very much to see you next year!!

Tina & George, owners of this cozy hotel are very welcoming and hospitable. The hotel location in Kamari is perfect, less than a minute walk to the Kamari beach and from the street of restaurant and bars. My husband & I arrived with no prior plans, only the hotel reservation which went very smoothly. Tina & George assisted us from the hotel pick up to reserving suitable cruises, restaurants, cars and squads. We spent a memorable 9 days and were very sad to leave. The hotel is absolutely lovely, it felt like home away from home. We will be back to Chez Sophie again. Nadine & Akram

What can I say that hasn't already been written? Chez Sophie lived up to all expectations - modern, clean and very peaceful. The beach is within walking distance, as are a good selection of restaurants and bars. What sets this hotel apart from all others though are the owners, Tina and George. Nothing is too much trouble for either of them and we felt like one of the family after our two week stay with them. Would not hesitate to go back.

We were very pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Lovely location and very close to the centre of Kamari, as well as the bus stop which allows you to travel easily to other parts of the island. Tina was incredibly helpful and willing to go beyond what we would expect from a host. A very friendly, accommodating and warm atmosphere with clean and tidy rooms. Do not think twice about booking if you're looking for a peaceful and quiet holiday. Thanks Tina!

Chez Sophie is a small hotel at the southern end of the resort of Kamari, a minute from the beach and backed by a huge mountain. The rooms are spotlessly clean, as are the public areas and the pool, the latter being the watering hole of choice for the local birds. The pool area is never crowded and visitors can buy drinks from the bar, if they wish. Tina provides a breakfast to suit most tastes, with lovely home-made preserves.

Kamari probably wouldn't be my favourite beach resort but I would go back to stay in this hotel because it is special. What makes it special is the lovely people who run it. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they are genuinely warm and friendly. Tina and Georgious, thank you for a lovely, relaxing week.

My new husband and I stayed here for 10 nights for our honeymoon, in the honeymoon suite. It was by far the best holiday we have ever been on. Quiet and relaxing in the most beautiful surroundings.
The room was spotless, cleaned every day and Tina's breakfast was fantastic! Homemade jams, pastries and my husband's favourite, apple pie!
Tina and George were the most wonderful hosts, from collecting us from the airport to giving advice on restaurants and things to do. Their daughter Irini even gave us a lift to a taverna in the mountains when we couldn't get a taxi. Their hospitality was way beyond what you expect from hosts. In our opinion there is no where else to stay in Santorini. We will definitely be back and we're looking forward to it already! Nicola and Jamie xx
