“Great location, really nice hotel!”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

We stayed 3 nights in this lovely hotel. The location first of all, was great, right in the center. It is located on the main beach road, which is a pedestrian road and it was perfect! Everything was near the hotel, cafes, restaurants, shops etc, just a few meters away! although we did not book a seaview room, the standard room was really nice too! We spent the whole day on the beach since we got free sunbeds in front of the hotel! Best time of the day was the breakfast's, you could enjoy a really nice buffet, while starring at the sea (the road is very quiet in the morning we were lucky to have good weather that made the whole feeling amazing)! Breakfast quality was very good, i could even order eggs with bacon or omellette, which is not very usual in a 3 star hotel!

Me and my girlfriend spent only one night in this lovely hotel coming from another island and we loved it! Although we booked a standard room, we got one with seaview and that was a great surprise for us! The food in the restaurant was delicious and the breakfast buffet amazing with omeletes, pancakes etc. The free sunbeds and umbrellas on the beach were also a great bonus. Unfortunately we could stay only one night but we will be back!

Room Tip: Place a beach towel on the sunbeds when you come for breakfast, cause it will be difficult to find a...

We enjoyed our 5 nights stay in this hotel. It was a perfect location, facing the beach in Kamari. People there were very nice and helpful. We loved our stay in this 3 stars hotel. The breakfast was alright except the orange juice which was a bit cheap. The rooms were great and clean, the only problem would be the sound insulation between the studios. But it was a minor point

We checked Tripadvisor before booking online and asked which room we would get. This was because of the 1 terrible review of this place. The reply was that we had a great "room with a great view and quiet". Sadly we got room 14 which we are sure was 1 of the 2 bad rooms that Ariel35 got. There was a lovely small balcony but the 2 split system airconditioners for our room and the 1 next door were located there and were very noisy. The position just above the kitchen caused loud working noises and doors slamming around 4am. There were twin beds and we wanted a double.
No Problems! Manolis was very concerned and found us a nice quiet room with a queen bed not facing the sea. When we checked out he also insisted on not charging for that first night.
The pool was magnificent and the (black) sandy beach was only across the road so a total of say 50m to the sea. Except that it was obvious the pool was not reserved for guests as the staff and friends of the owners were very noisy users on a couple of days. The food was great and the location perfect. We would love to go back sometime. Manolis was kind enough to pick us up from the airport and drop us off at the ferry. Thank you.

Room Tip: Try asking for room 1 or 10 or the one beside room 14 facing the sea.

We booked a room at this hotel for 4 nights - the first room they gave had no working A/C, so they moved us to the room next door, this room had A/C but barely working, and the bathroom floor was so hot you could cook eggs on it! Both rooms where located over the kitchen which made them extra warm, I only took 1 shower in this bathroom that's how hot it was. The refrigerator in the room generated so much heat that we ended up putting towels around it to block off some of the heat along with the A/C barely working it was better to just leave the windows open. With the hotel being near bars/clubs one night the music played until about 3am. The beds where horrible, I think I still have spring marks in my back! We paid $160 USD for this room! The only good thing was the beach! Stay at the Aegean View Hotel - they took us in for a night while we where trying to sort things out at the Elixir. The staff is warm and welcoming, and the rooms are fantastic and you have a wonderful view of the Aegean, and an easy walk to the beach.

We stayed in a superior room for 1 week in the middle of July. When we arrived we were treated a welcome drink, a glass of visanto - the famous local red wine. The owner of the studios was waiting for our arrival, to do the check-in, lead us to our room and helped us with our cases.
The studios are located on the pedestrian next to the beach, so we reached the sea in a minute. The studios provided us free sunbeds on the beach. The pool was also very good and clean in a windy day. We also tried the jacuzzi! We needed a 2-3 minute walk from the studios to reach restaurants and bars but it was lovely and quite for relaxing.
Elixir had also a great restaurant and bar where we ate the most of the time in our visit to Santorini. From snacks and main cources, the chicken with olives and feta cheese was delicious but also we were addicted to pizzas - volcano (really spicy) and hawai (with pineapple) and the waffle for dessert. We were able to have our cocktails next the pool all day long.
The staff were very helpfull and friendly and the room was spotless with linen and towel changes daily if required.
The only thing we found annoying was "the very early morning awakening from the sun's rays". We woke up around 6 o'clock and saw the most beutifull sunrise ever from our own balkony. Our room had an excellent sea view and also a sunrise view that no one had mentioned!!!
I would definately visit again the Elixir studios for vacations.
