Just returned from a weeks honeymon at the tamarix, what great place to relax and enjoy a week away.
The staff are very friendly and helpful, but dont get in the way.
Our room was clean and very spacious, with great roof top views from out hot tub.
No doubt we will return again.

Stayed at Tamarix for 6 nights and will definitely be returning next year. The location was ideal, with restaurants, cafes, supermarkets and shopping at our fingertips. Not to mention the beautiful black beach only 100 metres away. The atmosphere of Tamarix was awesome. It was quiet, yet there was always something or someone to look at. Loved it.

The Tamarix is lovely, the staff are very friendly & the resort is very clean. Breakfast is good and the bar food is also quite good. The decor is also very chic but minimalist, I loved the candles and flowers that made the resort very pretty. The only reservation we really had was that the hotel is advertised as a luxurious 5 star hotel and it is more like an good 3 - 4 star to be honest. We paid a lot of money for a Superior suite and were promised complimentary wine and various other perks in the hotel literature. When we arrived we were quite disappointed by our suite, as it was quite worn and bland, no complimentary wine in sight. We travelled with 15 others and those that booked Junior suites appeared to have nicer rooms. The suites themselves were nice but relatively basic so I am unsure why this hotel has a 5 star rating. Perhaps I am more fussy than most? We just expected more for our money.

In addition the pool is very small and the hotel mainly attracts middle aged couples who want peace and tranquility. We felt that we had to keep our one year old constantly quiet even in the swimming pool as some of the older couples looked miffed if she giggled and splashed in the pool for 5 minutes. Having said that, the staff were very accommodating and the little playroom that they provided was very useful and kept our little one occupied!

Overall the Tamarix is a lovely place but it is probably not ideal for young families as we felt it was more aimed at the 'Saga' holiday market. It is also not best if you are travelling as a group as some residents seemed to object if we had a conversation or played with a ball in the pool. One particularly sour couple even complained because a ball ran past their sunbed. To them we were a rowdy bunch spoiling their peace & quiet but we were just ordinary inoffensive people enjoying our time in the sun. Despite all of this the Tamarix is a great place to stay (probably one f the best in Kamari) and you are guaranteed a clean and pleasant air conditioned room but not necessarily a haven of unadulterated luxury!

We have just returned from a trip to this hotel between 22.10.2010 and 06.07.2010 we could have asked for better. The hotel is beautiful and clean. Rooms are fabulous and the staff just made out holiday. Mia was so lovely always had a smile on her face even having to work 7 days a week. Georga was also lovely always happy to chat and such a lovely person.
We hopefully be going back again soon and would recommend it to anyone.

Kamari Beach is a bustling beach resort full of tavernas & bars, but step through the doors of Tamarix and it becomes a world of tranquility & peace. 24 individual apartments gathered around a swimming pool with a bar made for a "Prisoner" type experience, I almost expected to see Patrick McGoohan around the corner. Our suite had the usual balcony plus a private jacuzzi & sun-area. Breakfast was amazing and the staff were so pleasant and hard-working. Ok, there was no "view" as such but all the tavernas were just outside the door and the beach was 50 yards away. Fantastic value.

We stayed at the Tamarix Del Mar for two weeks in June 2010 and also chose to get married here. From our first steps inside the hotel we were treated like stars- the staff are brilliant - so friendly and helpful and the rooms were absolutely amazing. We have never stayed anywhere that has made us feel so welcome. Our wedding ceremony was held on the terrace and the staff went out of their way to make our day special for us and it really was perfect!
Overall the hotel is a great place to stay - it's really close to the tavernas, beach and shops but is also very quite at night. It's very clean - the maids came and cleaned our room daily and provided fresh towels in the morning and asked if we'd like more in the evening. The pool is clean and safe and has ample sunbeds around. The breakfast is great - it has a large selection that is topped up to keep fresh. The rooms are large and have good facilities. The bathroom had a jacuzzi bath with a proper shower curtain to stop water going all over the floor (rare in Greece!).
The resort of Kamari is great if you want a good selection of tavernas and bars and it is a great base to travel to see the rest of Santorini. The best holiday we have ever had and we will definately be returning.
