The location of this friendly, family run hotel can't be beat! The rooms open directly out onto a lovely pool, backed by the black sand beach of the Mediterranean. The family that runs this hotel made it feel like home, and ensured that all our needs were taken care of.

We had the most relaxing and chilled holiday ever. Spiros and Diane are the most friendliest people you are ever likely to meet. From landing in Santorini, everythng was taken care of to ensure we were comfortable and relaxed. Picked up and taken to the airport FOC and Spiros even helped making our Son & Girlfriend comfortable - even though they were staying in a different hotel !!!

We booked direct with Diane and it was really good value for money. Our room was on the ground floor near the pool with a sea view. Room was comfortable and absolutely spotless. Was cleaned daily, as was the rest of the hotel. Breakast was nice and even though was the same every day, there was a very good variety, so you can vary what you have each morning. The home made jams (made by Spiros' mum are delicious). Diane helped us plan our excursions and Spiros more than looked after us at the bar.

Santorini is the most chilled and relaxing place with the most amazing views. We're already booking for 2013 and we'll be back to the Boathouse for sure. Thanks guys for a fantastic holiday. See you soon

This is a pretty good hotel, a bit dated, but the family that runs it is very friendly. I will definitely stay here again. And it wasn't because we got good deals on drinks and a free bottle of wine!!! They had a good breakfast, and it is so nice to eat in the patio overlooking the beach. Kamari beach is just across the sidewalk, and in my opinion is the best part of the island to stay.

You definitely gotta rent a car to see the whole island, specially because you gotta go to Oia to check out the sunset. Also recommend go check out the calderas/sunset cruise.

There are tons of restaurants along Kamari strip. We also decide to stay in Kamari is because is pretty close to the airport; it wasn't noisy. Most rental cars agencies would allowed you to leave the car at the airport, very convenient. Totally recommend renting a car from the port. And, you can always bargain for a deal.

We enjoyed our stay at the Boathouse, because we were well looked after and the accommodation was just what we needed. The room had a fridge, for keeping the tonic cold, a bathroom with a shower that had a reasonable amount of water pressure (something that seems unusual in Santorini), plenty of wardrobe space and an adequate balcony for relaxing. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Breakfasts were great, with plenty of fruit, yoghurt, fresh meat and cheese, not to mention bread. Served outside on the patio, watching the sun rise over the sea was a great start to the day. It was a great location, far enough out of the centre to be quiet at night, but easy to walk to bars and restaurants. The beach was a twenty step walk from the outside of the hotel. The only tiny downside were the aeroplanes flying overhead, which we knew about before we booked, and soon learnt to treat as white noise. We hired a car, and although it was not possible to park the car outside the hotel, there was a public car park within east distance. The hosts were extremely helpful, and arranged to take us to the port at the end of our stay.

My husband & I have just returned from our second visit to the Boathouse & it didnt disappoint. We were welcomed back like old friends & everything was fine.

I am shocked by the above mentioned review as the comments suggest he was expecting 5star luxury! Why if he was on a working holiday did he not check if there was wifi available & why choose a reasonably priced hotel & complain as if it claimed to be 5star?

When we went to the Boathouse for the first time last year, we chose it because it was relatively small & reasonably priced even staying in the 'Honeymoon suite'. This year it was not available but the economy room we had was fine. The room was spacious & the bed kingsize & everything was spotlessly clean. No bad smells at all!

We love it for its rustic charm & the staff are really friendly & ever willing to help. The hotel is at the quiet end of Kamari with the fabulous Almeri Restaurant (also owned by the Boathouse) right next door.

For anyone wanting a smallish, quiet hotel with privacy I strongly recommend it.

To Spiros, Kelly & all the staff. Thank you from Rosie & Alan Roach. Wales UK

Room Tip: If the Hoeymoon Suite is available it is worth th extra cost but the Sea View rooms are good as are...

Upon arriving at the hotel, the location was great, right across the boardwalk from the beach. Upon entering our room, the stench from the bathroom made us have to request another room. The new room was also ocean view, less the smell - initially. The beds were old and stiff, and the room was tight. AC threw off a bad smell. No wifi in room, so we had to spend much time looking at destinations and emailing down by their main office. I had to work while on vacation, so spent much time down there. A couple days on, apparently the wind shifted, as a crazy horrible smell came from our bathroom again, from the sewer pipes. the owner said that was normal, and nothing we could do about it. so we had to bare the next 2 days in an awful smelling room. Breakfast was typical, but i was very jealous of the next hotel over with a much nicer spread. The bathroom was kind of gross, as the whole thing got soaked when taking a shower, which made it feel even worse. Another horrible point is we were there for 4 days, and they never changed our sheets! The only soap in the room for shampoo, body, or anything, was a little pump soap on the sink. Overall, this is an inexpensive place for the budget traveler, but don't expect anything too nice and high quality here, beyond how nice the workers were. The owner was a super nice guy.

Room Tip: Great location, just don't expect too much in this hotel
