I have to say, this was my first time in Greece and we made a great choice with Rose Bay hotel. We booked the trip via german travel agency as last minute and got what we asked for great price. The Rose Bay Hotel is located in a quiet street 50 m from beach ( which is amazing for watching sunrise as we did couple of times ) and facing an amazing local taverna called Lolos that was owned by always smiling Greek who did all to make us feel welcome there. Because of early morning arrival ( 9 am ) we expected to be told to check-in afternoon ( as official site says 2pm ) but we were surprised that the lady at reception said our room is ready and we can also sit and enjoy the first breakfast in Greece ( which was a very pleasant surprise after an long flight ). The hotel has a very helpful staff indeed especially Christina at the reception she was smiling all the time and was ready to answer all our questions about sightseeing and things we demanded. Absolute satisfaction what hotel staff concerns. As for the accomodation, who expects 4 star hotel as in western in Europe would be a little dissapointed though i think for Greek 4 star hotel is this one more than suitable ( usually you should take in mind that 4 stars in Greece mean 3 stars in France for example ) We got a room Nr.210 which was a classic double room , located at the 1st floor with balcony overlooking the pool which i personally think is one of the best rooms located in this hotel.Central position, not far away from reception, overlooking pool and breakfast porch, mountain view.The room equipment is basic,plus point was the fact that the AC wasn't noisy and didnt bother us at all. Next to the Hotel is located little market and the main promenade is 2 minutes walk with tons of taverns and bars. The nearest bus stop for local bus to capital Fira is also not far way, approx. 7 min walk ( the map was given us at the reception with detailed informations so it was not possible for us to get lost :-)) As for all the travellers to Santorini i would definitely recommand this hotel, we were absolutely satisfied with the Hotel, staff, location, breakfast menu and everything what our stay concerned.
Have a lovely holiday in Santorini :-)

This is a lovely hotel with one of the nicest pools we've seen in the Cyclades. We had a room, with a very pretty balcony overlooking the pool. The room itself was basic, but clean and adequate. The breakfast here is fantastic with a wide selection of food. We found all the staff to be professional, courteous and very helpful.
The atmosphere at this hotel is quiet and slightly glamourous.
It is definitely more expensive than other hotels in the area, but worth it.
Rose Bay is around the corner from the beach - two minutes walk. There are restaurants and bars all along the sea front, which is lovely for a stroll in the evening. The beach at Kamari like all beaches on Santorini is stoney, but the water is beautiful once you get in. Kamari is a much quieter place than the capital, Thira, we were travling with children and preferred Kamari as Thira can be quite crowded and expensive.
The bus from Kamari to Thira is fairly regular and the bus stop is 10 minutes walk from the hotel. It's about 30 minutes on the bus to Thira. You should definitely visit Thira at sunset, which is a sight not to be missed.
The airport on Santorini is in Kamari, so there are planes coming in over the village, but it's a tiny airport, with just a couple of flights a day. They didn't bother us at all.
We would highly recommend Rose Bay if you're looking for somewhere special on Santorini.

I was really disappointed with this hotel.
When I saw the photos on the website, I was expecting a 4 star hotel but in my opinion this is a 3 star hotel.
The rooms and specially the bathroom were old.
The staff is Ok but they are not so helpful.
It is really well located, close to good restaurants and stores.

Clean rooms, good value and the breakfasts were delicious (nutella pancakes especially). Good pool & hotel in great location next to the beach. Wasn't the biggest fan of Kamari, a little too touristy & not as picturesque as Oia in my opinion, but nonetheless a good value hotel

This is a really lovely, friendly hotel in a perfect location. I could not fault it. The staff were lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Rooms are great and the pool is perfect. The food is also excellent. It's round the corner from the sea and some rooms have sea view rooms. I would recommend the pool view rooms. They are much nicer and cooler!
If you are looking for the real Greece, Santorini is not ideal and this resort isn't really either. It is perfectly pleasant, but Kamari could be almost any Mediterranean resort.

Room Tip: Pool view rooms and quiet, spacious and cooler.
