I don't know where to start writing my review for the beautiful Acqua Vatos.....there is just so much to say about this beautiful beautiful hotel. Everything from the beautiful blue gate to staff and the food... it is without doubt one of the best places I have ever stayed.
Prior to our 6 night stay, I had been in touch with the hotel to arrange somethings, and everything the replies were so quick and anything I asked for was granted without a fuss.
Arriving at the hotel, it is exactly like it is in the pictures (something that doesn't always carry through for other hotels) and we were greeted by the friendliest of staff, who couldn't do enough for us during our 6-day stay..... they deserve credit when reviewing the hotel as they make the experience as much as the surroundings!!
The hotel itself is small, but this adds to the character. The lobby is quirky, as is the rest of the decor and the pool area is fabulous with lots of sun loungers which you are provided with clean towels for everyday if you wish. The pool is a welcome break from the Greek sunshine, along with a cold beer from the little pool bar.
The breakfast also deserves a mention.... which changes everyday ranging from French toast and spinach pies to scrambled eggs and omelettes along with a variety of delicious treats (banana bread, rice puddings and choc biscuit cake) and the delicious greek honey and homemade plum jam (I may go back just for the plum jam alone)!!
Everything else is the hotel is just as good, spotless bedrooms, beautiful bedrooms with rain showers which are cleaned everyday. We stayed in an economy room which I had reservations about, worrying it would be too small but given the area you are in and the rest of the hotel, they are a fine size for what you need.
If I could go back to Santorini and to the Acqua Vatos tomorrow, it couldn't come quick enough! I fell in love with the island and with this hotel and all it's amazing staff. They organised, on my request, a trip to their sister hotel Above Blue, for dinner on our last night. Not once did the staff let slip on front of my boyfriend and they went out of their way to ensure we had a fantastic time. If you are looking for a romantic idea while you are here, ask them about it at Acqua Vatos..... it's a must!
To all at Acqua Vatos.... Thank you for a wonderful time! I can say without doubt, we will be back sooner than later, I hope!!!

- Tucked away in the heart of Kamari in Santorini and just a few passes away of the famous black sand beach, the Acqua Vatos has been fully refurbished and transformed into a hip boutique hotel in the spring of 2011. It is trendy, elegant and from time to time eccentric, with minimalistic design and exhibitionist bathrooms.
