Santorini Kastelli Resort
Ranked #10 of 75 Hotels in Kamari
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 13, 2013

I wish that TA would allow "half" ratings, as I really want to score this place 4.5:

As per the title of my review, Kastelli is stunning - The resort is spotlessly clean, very well laid out with multiple pools with lots of bougainvillaea and olive trees planted throughout.
Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and we were upgraded to a Junior Suite with private roof terrace upon arrival. The Hotel Manager - Antonis - helped recommend local restaurants (also reviewed by me on TA) and negotiated a lower rate for us when it came to booking a sunset cruise with an external company. In summary, the service was exceptionally good.
So, why a 4.5 and not 5?
The rooms are very simple in terms of decor. Everything in the bedroom is white-washed concrete, including the bed! This, combined with a hard mattress and very hard pillows meant that the bed wasn't comfortable. Also, the bathrooms look quite dated (then again, this is Greece!). Our shower had very poor water pressure, but friends in another room didn't have the same issue, so it must be the luck of the draw to some extent.
The inclusive breakfast was OK - usual buffet selection, so nothing special.
However, we ate our evening dinner in the restaurant twice (so 2 out of 7 nights) as it was very good. Beware - the portions are huge. I'd advise that 2 or more share a starter if everyone is ordering individual main courses.
If ordered in the morning, the restaurant will also order in fresh fish for the evening. Not cheap, but worth it. Our party had mussels, sea bass and lobster all of which were great.
Kastelli stock a good range of Santorini wines ranging in price and also arrange wine tasting evenings.
I would go back. I'd say that I would definitely go back in Antonis buys some softer pillows!

Room Tip: We had the junior suite 201 - very large with a large private roof terrace. Poor water pressure. O...

We've just returned from the Kastelli Resort and being back at work feels like a trial. The staff, particularly Antonis and George were brilliant, couldn't do enough to make our stay perfect. We had room 327, which over-looked the main pool and sea view, it was clean well planned out comfortable (the only tiny tiny, thing is that the hairdryers could do with a bit of an upgrade!).

The hotel itself is laid out in a really interesting way, lots of nooks and crannies and little pools dotted around so you never feel like it's too busy. Everyone is laid back but professional and nothing is too much trouble. The bar and food in the restaurant are both good and it's a very short walk to the beach, sea front and tonnes of Kamari restaurants (great recommendations from the staff around which are the best).

If you want a really relaxing holiday, with lovely weather, great service and good food, but only a relatively short hop from the UK this is the place for you!

We were met by a member of staff as soon as we got off the coach. He took our luggage and a few of the guests down to reception on a golf buggy, when we got to reception we didn’t queue up and check in at a desk they took us and sat us down, gave us a drink and a little form to fill in then escorted us to our room followed shortly by our luggage. All the staff where very friendly and helpful, the food amazing and the resort itself was very picturesque. This is a definite 10/10 resort with only one word to describe it “perfect” Enjoy!!

I researched this hotel on TA when booking my honeymoon. We were not disappointed! Staff was very friendly, amazing breakfast, and we were upgraded to a Junior Suite that was amazing. I would recommend this resort to anyone traveling to Greece.

Our family visited the hotel this summer within August. We stayed there for 10 days and had an amazing time. Customer service was excellent and the staff was keen to satisfy all of our requests promptly and the restaurant was magnificent. The hotel is surrounded by trees, has vast spaces and the facilities are all modern from the pool to the spa even the library. The rooms were very spacy and clean. The hotel manager Antonis was eager to help us and give us always the best tips and places to visit on the island. Our kids really enjoy it playing around in a safe environment. Would definitely visit again.

we have just returned from the Kastelli Resort in Kamari and wish we could go back there already.
the resort was spotless, the staff were so helpfull, friendly and attentive, the rooms were beautiful and the breakfasts and daytime/evening meals were of excellent standards.
we are already planning our return to Santorini for next year and the Kastelli Resort is the only place I would consider staying.
the best holiday experience I have ever had.
