Wow, what can we say about Tamarix? We stayed here for a week in May and it was fantastic. The hotel is like a little oasis of calm, luxury & relaxation. Everything about Tamarix was perfect. We stayed in room 207 which had a mezzanine level with a further 2 beds which led out on to a roof top terrace with out own private hot tub! As we made friends with lots of people staying here we had a chance to see some of the other rooms and they were all of the same fantastic standard & the staff worked so hard to keep them this way too. All rooms cleaned everyday with fresh towels etc provided.

From the moment we walked into reception the staff were all so welcoming and did everything they could to make our stay special. George, Dora, Georgia & Demi were fantastic, the Tamarix team isnt a big team but it certainly works very well together.

Breakfast was fantastic everyday and we ate lunch here most days and the food was as good as we ate anywhere else on the island. The hotel team held a Greek night on the Friday night with drinks and Greek food served all night which was super and they treated us to some Greek dancing & even got a few of us to join in (thank you Georgia for your excellant teaching!)

We really didn't want to leave and Yes, we will be back. The location of this hotel & its wonderful staff make this a perfect place to visit & explore Santorini.

We stayed at this hotel during our wedding and honeymoon (we got married at Santo Winery and had a reception at Atmosphere). I have to say this is a fantastic hotel, the service is the best I have experienced, you feel like part of the family when you stay. The reception and bar staff make you feel so welcome and they can't do enough for you (they are massively offended if you try and help). When we stayed there were at least 2 other couples that were getting married but they made us feel so special (as I am sure they did everyone).
I asked for a full length mirror as there wasn't one in my room, they had one found quickly, they also hung my dress and bridesmaid dress up in the room when they were returned from being Steamed as I was out with the family - nothing was too much trouble. My family were staying in several hotels in Kamari, always popping in to meet us for a meal or drink and they made everyone feel so welcome. I won't spoil the surprises but they really did make our wedding day and honeymoon special...we definitely will be returning for an anniversary! I would also recommend the hotel bar food (really tasty) and the drinks are cheaper then any where else we went!

WOW, was the first impression we both had when we walked in to this lovely little hotel. Everyone is so nice, and friendly. As said in the last few posts, everything here is wonderful. we didn't want to leave either.

staff are lovely, nothing is to much trouble. Demi, George, Georgia, and little Dora. you are all fab.
we stayed in room 104, approx. 2 metres from the pool, so not to long a stroll!!. room was beautiful, lovely little kitchenette, inc fridge/freezer, kettle, pots, pans and cutlery. you do not need to take an iron as there is a little board and iron in the room. no need for a hair dryer, as its built into the bathroom. slippers and bathrobes, and lots of toiletries. Pool and beach towels provided, and plenty to go round. even little baseball caps!! Drinks and food served in your room/balcony/pool side at no extra cost. All rooms have aircon. and whirlpool baths.

the beach is a 5 min walk away (MAX) and the bus for Fira is only down the road, and cost 1.60Euros each, each way. (well worth the visit!!) there is a little supermarket not 30 seconds from the hotel. they sell everything!!!

so all in all, its fair to say, this was the most wonderful holiday I think we have ever had. so YES, without a shadow of a doubt, we will be back!!!

just one small thing, please leave at least 2.5-3hrs before your flight. Thira airport is mayhem, and we went in may!!

thanks again all at Tamarix. you made our holiday. xxxxxxx :)

Room Tip: we had room 104, 2 meters from the pool. and a nice little shady veranda to. PERFECT!!!!

We stayed here for 1 week for our wedding/honeymoon. What can I say... complete perfection.! The staff at the hotel are what make it so special, they cannot do enough for you. They organised our guest's transport up to our venue and decorated our room with rose petals, chocolates and champagne for when we got back that night.!
Our room was beautiful with a huge bed, spotlessly clean and had a Jacuzzi on the terrace. The breakfast is fresh with plenty to chose from. The pool area is a relaxed atmosphere if your looking to stay away from the rowdy crowds and the bar food is lovely (order the Greek pizza!)

The Tamarix treat us to a candle lit romantic meal on our private terrace the night after our wedding, and also sent us up to another hotel for 1 night to a hotel with the most breathtaking views of the caldera.!
We will definately return to this hotel and it will remain special to us.

Thanks to all the staff. X x x

From the minute we arrived at Tamarix, our stay has been amazing. We leave tonight and couldn't praise it highly enough. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, the setting is beautiful and the hot tub on the balcony a lovely touch to a perfect (and huge) suite.

Kamari was a perfect base for exploring Santorini - lovely beach, great restaurants (especially Honey and Thyme) and an uncrowded, relaxed atmosphere.

The hotel had everything you can imagine for a thoroughly relaxing stay - the building and pool are beautiful and the bar is a lovely, friendly place to while away a few hours.

This was our first time on the island and we would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to visit Santorini. An absolutely fantastic find!

Stayed at the Tamarix Del Mar Hotel from 20th to 27th May with my best friend. One of the first holidays where I really wasn't ready to leave. You were made to feel extremely welcome from the minute you walked through the door. You are greeted with a introduction to the all the facilities and then a complimentary drink in the pool bar supplied by a lovely gentleman called George. The staff at this hotel really do know about customer service, Demi and Georgina on reception were kind, professional and couldn't do enough for you. George and Dora who supplied the catering made you feel part of there own family. I really cannot stress how fantastic all the staff were including the cleaning staff who kept the place clean, fresh and immaculate. The pool area is lovely, they supply private seating areas and comfortable sunbeds for each suite. The breakfast had lots of choice, something for everyone and always fresh and well presented. Thank you all for making our stay so amazing. We have every intention to return.
