Sunflower Hotel
Ranked #47 of 75 Hotels in Kamari
Reviewed June 9, 2012

The first time we had a holiday in Santorini and we wasn't disapointed. The Sideris Sunflower Apartments are basic but very clean with Elizabeth the cleaner coming in every day. Gregory and Sideris can't do enough for you and are wellcoming and helpfull to you! A trip to Oia to see the sunset is a must, a truly amazing experience. There's plenty of places to eat in Kamari with a wide range of bars and resturants, our favourate was The Liverbird Pub where Shelia and Wayne are most wellcoming. Don't have any doubts about going to Sideris Sunflower Apartments at all, we plan to go back to the Sideris next year and I for one can't wait!

We are coming to the end of our 7th holiday at Sideris Sunflower. I can only say that if you want great hosts, lovely clean apartments and a relaxed holiday this is the place for you! Sideris and Gregory and their wives Rita and Maria can not do enough for you,they are the nicest people you will ever meet, very genuine people. We have enjoyed every holiday here, hence returning on a regular basis! Go,you will have a great time and Santorini is amazing!!

we have just returned from a week here as we needed a base to stay on the island to attend a wedding and have a holiday. overall we had the most amazing week, one of our best ever. Santorini has some of the most spectacular scenery we have ever seen, really took my breath away. Most of this is on the opposite side of the island as Kamari itself isn't the best looking resort, particulalry due to the black, pebbly beach. However it does have a great selcection of bars and restaurants, none of which seemed very loud/noisy. We have stayed in many Greek resorts and i think the standard of food in Kamari is better than anywhere else we have been, all at a reasonable cost too. Favourites were Almira, Yamas and Sky Lounge.
Sideris Villa is a great base with a good position in the resort for access to centre and beach but one of the main roads goes right past the front of it and if you have a room overlooking the pool you will have constant road noise. We had a slight issue with some of the kitchen cupboards and bedroom drawers being dirty and we had to clean them before use. But all other areas seemed to be spotlessly clean. Self catering faciliites here were some the the most basic i've experienced but we made do and ate out in the evenings. 10 euro for safe in room and 7 euro per day for air con.
sideries and his family seemed very helpful although we didn't need much from him and due to the wedding we spent alot of time away from the apt.
We did a caldera cruise, climbed the volcano, swam in the hot springs and hired a car for one day and saw the rest of the island. Driving is much easier and less scary than in other areas of Greece as the island is so small and easy to get around. All was booked through Thomson and really well executed, John the rep was excellent, very professional.
to sum up we would thoroughly reccommend Santorini if you like getting out and about, seeing and expereincing things. If you want a week on a beach only there are much better, more suitable resorts.
as it was the second week of the season some things weren't open/not running but this also meant we had a lovely peaceful time too, apart from the road!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: rooms at the back would be quieter. but pool view rooms also overlook the road which is constantly...

We visited on a bargain last minute deal as we always wanted to see Santorini. The rooms are nice and have a nice pool views, the road can get the hum of scooters though through the night. The weather was on the turn and all was closing down for winter. Car hire is a must if you want to see the sights on Santorini. Otherwise for what we paid this can only be an excellent base for seeing more. There are plenty of great eaters nearby, and a local supermarket and the road to the beach is pretty flat for those not able to rush. Definitely worth a visit.

Stayed here in May 2011 after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. This was my 16th trip to the Greek Islands and 2nd to Santorini so I knew what to expect. I found Sideris to be a cracking little place to stay, rooms were all spacious and well cleaned and the staff were excellent. I'd definitely go back and would recommend this to anyone looking for a cheap villa that they're going to use as a base whilst exploring the island.

We stayed at the Sideris the first two weeks of September 2011. It was our first time to Santorini and if we returned this is the place we would stay. Sideris and his brother Gregory are lovely people and nothing seems to be too much trouble for them, if you asked for something it was there or done straight away. The apartments are in a very good location with everything being within a five minute walk. The Sideris has a lovely pool area and surroundings. Although we only had a studio it was plenty big enough for the two of us, and was always kept clean. The view from the balcony was truely great so what more could you wish for.

Room Tip: Dont be afraid to ask for a different room,we were asked on arrival which room we would like from a...

This was our 3rd stay at Sideris Sunflower and it justs gets better. So many of the other guests were also returnees. Gregory and Sideris were as welcoming as ever and believe me if they can help you to enjoy your stay in any way they will. Always available with information on where to go, where to eat , what to see and so on. The small bar near the pool is wonderfull for making friends with other guests and is a lovely place to start and end your nights out. Our room was clean and comfortable as always as is the rest of the hotel, the pool and other outside areas are constantly cleaned. This is very much a family run hotel and is very much a hotel for families. Its easy to leave here thinking that you have become friends with everyone at the hotel. A big thankyou to Maria for the lovely food we had and the chip butties are the best. We cant wait to return again!
Thank you all at Sideris Sunflower!

Room Tip: Booking independantly gives you a greater choice of rooms.
