“Lovely hotel on edge of Kamari”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

We stayed in the hotel for a week at the end of June. Staff were friendly. We had a room with an indoor Jacuzzi from which we could see the sea. The hotel is on the edge of Kamari and we appreciated the quiet surroundings. It is up a hill but that was not too much of an inconvenience. However, we had thought we might occasionally get a taxi back on an evening but taxis seemed to be hard to find. The hotel has 2 pools the smaller of which was down the stairs from our room - it felt like having our own private pool. Breakfast was fine and we had lunch at the hotel on a couple of days and the service and quality was good. However, evening meals had a limited choice of food and a set price so not good value if you only wanted one course. Don't let this put you off - there are several good restaurants in Kamari.

Antinea is a decent 3+ stars hotel with a homey feeling. Its location near one of Kamari's biggest mountains and the quietness of the area are perhaps the biggest advantages of this hotel. When staying on the balcony you have the impression that the mountain is falling on to you. Great feeling. The staff is very friendly - they changed our room twice with no comment whatsoever. The bathrooms could be revamped and perhaps the hygiene and cleanliness improved - there is space in that area. The food variety is limited - always English breakfast and not so many fruits, vegetables and fish. Right from the entrance in the yard you see the hotel displays a 5-stars banner. However, we believe it is a 3+ or 4 stars in the most generous assessment. Overall, I think it was a good stay.

Room Tip: Ask to have your room replaced at the reception. The jacuzzi room is smelly and you feel a very humi...

We had a week here - arrived 10th June - and really loved it. The hotel was gorgeously laid out, staff were so friendly and helpful and the views were great. We had a room with an indoor jacuzzi which was such a treat. Relaxing in there early evening before getting ready to go out for dinner was so nice especially with the fab view of the sea. The main pool is lovely with great double bed sun loungers along the back wall and if you have a walk around you will come across little jacuzzis for any guests' use (some are private with particular rooms that have been booked) and even another small pool up the stairs along past dining room (it was like having our own private pool most of the time!) We would definitely go back there. It is up a hill though but nothing too serious! The mountain that you have a great view of from the hotel can be climbed and it is well worth doing as the views are great. Take a large bottle of water though. There is a very old little chapel about three quarters of the way up and you can ring the bell when you get there! Best to walk up it and then come back via the winding roads. Beautiful! Kamari itself is a great place to be situated as there are so many good restaurants and bars. So nice sitting there enjoying a lovely dinner looking over the lovely black sand beach to sea and to your right the mountains. Santorini is a very beautiful island. I love Greece anyway because it is so unspoilt but Santorini is particularly beautiful. Visiting other parts of the island is a must especially to visit Oia to experience the beautiful sunsets! It is pricier to eat and drink there but forewarned is forearmed! There is a lovely little restaurant though called Restaurant Pizza Edwin which is down the hill and along from the coach park. You can see the sunset from there and it is very reasonably priced. I don't think you will find cheaper there. Nice staff. Obviously if you want to be up high to see the sunset then you could eat before the sun sets giving you time to get up the hill or after it has set! If you are going to Santorini, enjoy!

Room Tip: We had a room with indoor jacuzzi (room 104) and were more than happy with the views from that room...

We had the pleasure of staying at this hotel last summer and could not have been happier. Less than a week before we were set to travel we heard that our hotel had overbooked. After looking at new options we chose the Antinea Spa and it was absolutely amazing! Between the friendly staff, gorgeous rooms, clean accommodations, great breakfast, amazing views or relaxing spa everywhere I turned with this choice I was pleased. We even had our own privacy pool outside our room to use when we wanted. We had read other reviews which referenced the location being on top of a gigantic hill....yes it was on a hill but it was exaggerated in many other reviews.

The Antinea is set in Kamari which has a beautiful beach and what felt like miles of beachfront restaurants and shops. We walked all over and look forward to the next opportunity to visit Santorini and stay at the Antinea again.

We're just back from a fortnight's stay at Antinea. First impressions were good - wide marble steps up to the front door, friendly welcome (including a cold drink), cases taken to our room, lovely swimming pool with loungers and day beds, smaller pool with shaded seating area, and wonderful views across the town to the sea in one direction, and the towering mountain behind in the other.
The hotel is laid out like a mini Greek village - small buildings linked by walkways and steps, all set on different levels. We'd asked for a quiet room, and were given number 606, which was with three others right at the top of the complex. It was a reasonably spacious room, with chairs and a table on a balcony at the front (lovely for sitting out in the evening). The main benefit was its comparative privacy - apart from the people staying in the other three neighbouring rooms, we were away from the main areas. We were pleased we hadn't paid extra for a room with jacuzzi or private pool, as they all seemed to be close to the walkways and stairs, and even though they had screens, they were far from private or quiet, and many were overlooked. One room, for instance, was right next to the bar - in fact, its outdoor seating area is part of the walkway in front of the bar - and its so-called private jacuzzi is across another walkway and in a little screened-off corner. So we were very happy with our room.
Staff were friendly and helpful, quickly sending extra pillows and another beside light when we asked for them.
Yes, the hotel is on a hill above the town, but it's not a super-steep incline and it means the Antinea is away from the noise of all the bars and restaurants but still within easy reach.
However, there were two areas where we felt the Antinea could make big improvements. The first is housekeeping, which at best was erratic. For example, we didn't appear to have clean bath towels for our whole fortnight's stay, although hand towels were changed twice; soap and shower gel appeared to be rare resources, and several times we were reduced to squeezing together a few crumbs of soap to try to wash with (the bathroom was clearly inspected, as one of my empty travel set bottles was thrown away but the lack of soap didn't appear to register); my bathrobe was replaced three times, but my husband's disappeared completely after three days; and the loo roll holder was on a wall on the opposite side of the bathroom, out of reach of even my 6' 4" husband.
The second area for improvement is the breakfast. The buffet looks impressive, with something to cater for most tastes. However, the so-called hot food was only lukewarm at best (tepid baked beans for breakfast, anyone?); fried eggs often had a dried skin over the yolks; fruit juice wasn't fresh (presumably made from powder), which was a shame when there were bowls of delicious fresh orange and grapefruit slices; we were told off for bringing our own decaff coffee powder - it wasn't permitted to bring in food and drink, we were told, but as there was no decaff provided by the hotel we were given permission to use it but were told to be discreet; and for 10 days of our holiday, the background music was dire - a minor point, I know, but starting the day listening to exactly the same tracks of adenoidal wailing and suffering was depressing to say the least.
We didn't eat any other meals at the hotel - there were so many tavernas in Kamari to choose from. We tried to avoid restaurants along the sea front, the only exception being Irini, right at the southern end of the beach, where food was excellent quality and value (the swordfish set meal was a bargain). We also returned to Alexander's (either go early or book, as it's a small place and gets very busy), and to Andreas (do try the seafood platter, but starve beforehand because it's huge; try to go on Friday evenings, when there is an excellent bouzouki player - he does jazz as well as traditional music).
And talking of food, we smuggled leftovers back to the hotel for the very hungry cats who visited our room.
There's not a huge amount to do on Santorini, but the fact it's comparatively uncommercialised is part of its charm. It's easy to find the track up to Ancient Thera, starting right next to Antinea - do take water and have frequent rests, and be sure to visit the ruins. We then walked down the other side of the mountain to Parissa, had lunch, and then did the return walk. Fira and Oiea are both worth visiting, but packed with tourists particularly when the cruise ships are in. Akrotiri was a good trip, too. We did everything by local bus - cheap and fairly efficient. It's also worth walking north out of Kamari, along the beach and past the airport. There are a couple of good fish tavernas along the way, and we ended up at Monolithos beach, which was empty and good for swimming.
All in all, an excellent holiday.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room if you want privacy

Just back from a 7 day birthday holiday at the Antinea Hotel. This hotel is really nice, good staff and lovely food. The room was large and very clean with room service every day.
The Island is absolutely breathtaking with things to do for everyone. We hired trikes from the hotel and they were the cheapest on the Island, fun and a nice way to see all.
A word of warning - this hotel is on a hill, a very steep hill and if you have mobility problems then this is not the place for you. Apart from this the place is a must.

Room Tip: Room 108, close to everything and really big.
