'You must stay here if you are going to holiday in Kamari'. We stayed here from 29th May - 12th June 2012.
I have read some reviews here talking about 'problem' wedding parties, people being drunk, noise around the pool. Some of these reviews were written whilst we stayed and i can assure you, this was none of our party. I didn't see any behaviour around the hotel that was nothing nut people having good clean and harmless fun, children playing and jumping in the 'main pool'. I can only imagine that whoever wrote the reviews wanted a holiday of silent solitude and boredom, if this was the case, they could have had the choice of 6 other private pools with no children around. (Rant over)
We got married in Santorini on June 3rd 2012 and brought 32 of our friends and family with us. 10 of us stayed at the Kastelli Resort and had the best time ever. There are NO bad points about this hotel and too many good points to list, but i will try for you.
STAFF - 'UNBELIEVABLY FRIENDLY AND PROFESSIONAL' - it is the staff at the Kastelli that make a huge contribution to the enjoyment of your stay here. The hotel manager, ADONIS, is there to make your stay as complete as possible, always looking to make sure you are happy. The bar and restaurant team are THE BEST! ATHENA (waitress) is an absolute joy to greet you each and every waking hour with a smile and a chat about anything and everything and NICKOLAS (restaurant and bar manager) is a legend, really nice guy who is ultra professional and takes great pride in the standard of his and his teams work, these people made our stay very special.
FOOD - 'SUPERB' - The breakfast is served until 12pm, what more could you wish for!? The breakfast is unbelievable, all buffet style and never ran out, even if you were 11.45 lazy eaters like us!! You can have anything or all of it from fresh bread, fruits, yoghurt, cakes, pastries, cheese and spinach pies, meats, salad, cheese, english breakfast, waffles, crepes, fruit juice, tea, coffee, champagne (Brut).... It really is a feast, so much so that its worth spending the extra money to stay there as you don't need a lunch!! The bar prices can be a little pricey, 10 euros for a cocktail, my wife had a 2pm Mojito habit and 4 euros for a bottle of beer but so long as you are aware of this you can budget for it and stock up at supermarket in the room fridge!
ACCOMODATION - 'FAULTLESS' - We were offered a free upgrade by Adonis to help celebrate our wedding and stayed in room 114 with a free bottle of bubbly. Stunning decor, great bathroom and shower, semi private pool outside the patio, and to the front of the room, massive bed, that is a little firm but you get used to it. The room was cleaned and fresh towels and bedding every day, free air con, free digital safe, mini bar, fridge, (no kettle), TV.
AMENITIES - treat yourself to a couples retreat in the spa, superb massage, complimentary champagne and a private 90 minutes use of the jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, showers etc. The best 120 Euros that we spent!! I used the gym a good few times, and although basic, you can get a decent workout with the free weights, benches and cardio machines. Have your choice of 7 (i think) amazing pools. The main pool is busy and full of life and the rest are quieter for a more tranquil time.
LOCATION - 3 minute walk to the beach, bars and tavernas, bus stops outside the front or back of the hotel, no traffic noise at all. The gardens in the complex are beautiful, lots of green and an amazing smell from the flowers. Although you never see the place being cleaned, it is spotless, never anything out of place.
Finally, i could not fault this hotel or their staff team. I can only dream of going back there for another 2 weeks of luxury and escapism, thank you to all from Adonis, reception team, man who carries your bags, cleaners, bar staff, restaurant staff and 24 hour room service man.
