“Couldn't do more for you”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

We recently stayed at black sands for a friends wedding and the accommodation was chosen purely on price. But we got so much more than we expected. The breakfast included on our bill was brilliant and even though one day wf could not stay long enough to have breakfast because of a day trip, the staff were more than happy to provide a take away instead. Our sun loungers on the beach were all included which was a great money saver for such an expensive location. Although the accommodation itself was not the greatest it was not awful either in the sense that we really felt that we got what we paid for and the cleaner was there daily. I felt the staff did everything they could for us and they really goes a long way. If u were to go back to santorini I would definitely stay here again

I just came back from a trip to Black Sand with my boyfriend. All we could say is perfect. Very good value for money, shower might be a bit small and the furniture might be a bit outdated but that is the only thing since it is all very clean. Owners and stuff is very helpful and they all try to make it perfect for you. They always want to call restaurants or organizations for reservations and information about trips and prices for you. Swimming pool is very nice and very clean, enough sunbeds are around. Location is good since the beach and the boulevard is only one street further and the bus stop is around the corner, which brings you to Fira very cheap (1,60 euro pp) and surprisingly it goes on time. Kamari is a nice city to explore the island since it has a beach and it is nicely located regarding Fira. Other recommendations: rent a scooter and drive to the south (Perissa and Perivolos, whose are very nice beaches and explore the road to Akrotiri) and walk from Imerovigli to Fira!

This review is for the Black Sand Apartments.
Location very good, minutes walk to restaurant and beach. Very clean rooms, maid service every day and they would change towels etc as requested. Nice and quiet by the pool area, not overcrowded. Mantha the owner was fantastic. Good communication before we arrived, managed to arrange transport from the airport and back. Very welcoming on arrival and couldn't do enough for us as a family. Would recommend to family's and couples alike. Lots of lovely places to eat near by

Room Tip: Love,y views from the first floor of the mountains

This is by far the best hotel we have stayed in, the decor is not the most up to date however the room was large with good facilities and immaculately clean, great air con too. We had a lovely view of the mountain from our balcony and enjoyed lounging in the sun by the pool. The hotel is not overlooked which is great and is just a short walk from the beach, we found this to be a valuable asset as the beach front hotels share their outside space with passers by while ours was much more private. Then theres Mantha and her team, such great service they really took a personal interest in making you feel comfortable and ultimately making your holiday the best it could be. Kamari itself we found was a great place to stay as the more popular areas such as Fira and Oia were crammed with tourists from the cruise ships, great places to see but not so relaxing. Santorini is a small island, we hired a car for the week but had done a lap in the first two days, still car hire was cheap and we found many smaller local places to visit throughout the week. Residents of the island were all very nice and welcoming. Great holiday, Thank you Mantha.

Black Sands is split in to two sites, the apartments set back from the main Kamari strip and then the Hotel directly on the Kamari strip above Oxygen Internet cafe, but don't let this put you off. We stayed in the Hotel and had sea views over Kamari beach. We suffered no noise issues and enjoyed the continental breakfast overlooking the sea each morning. The rooms are basic, but clean and well kept and conveniently close the beach.

Catch the sunrise from your balcony if you are an early bird. Mantha (the owner) is a wonderful person. Much quieter than OIa. You can find "tranquillity" here, but not in either Oia or Fira, both of which are much more commercial.
Free wifi, although the receiption is not always good.

We really enjoyed out stay at the Black Sand Apts, the apartment was spacious and had the basics you needed. The manager was very helpful and had tips on where to go, what buses to catch, what restaurants to visit etc, they even offer to come and pick you up from the airport!

The location on the apartments are ideal, one street back from the main street, therefore nice and quiet. The pool area is really nice, well kept and clean.

If we were to return to the beautiful island of Santorini we would stay here again for sure!! We couldn't fault the place!
