“Shhh - don't tell everyone ...its out secret!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

We stayed here for one week flying out with Thomson Holidays. By far the best part of the holiday was the deal was the hotel - the flight was cramped and the food expensive! The staff of the hotel were all very friendly and could not do enough to make our stay a memorable and enjoyable one. The breakfasts were good and plenty of choice to suit everyone.
Only two things from a personal perspective and was that we found the beds a little hard and the noise from traffic around the pool can be distracting....but hey a spotlessly clean hotel that is well run, very friendly and a great place to stay. Very well located for the town and beach.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a bed that is not against the wall.

We stayed here by recommendation from a colleague who had been before. My son was getting married and all the guests were staying in different areas around the island. We picked by far the best hotel and location. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Hotel very clean - breakfasts were really good, and it was nice to be able to have tea and coffee any time of day or night. Great location, lots of bars and restaurants in easy reach. We really enjoyed our time there. Would highly recommend a stay there.

This great hotel is perfectly positioned, in Kamari, with just a short stroll needed to be at the beach and a collection of excellent restaurants.
The hotel is delightful, its bright, modern and kept spotlessly clean.
The breakfast has something for everybody begins/stops at sensible times.
The pools area is really nice with a seated area and plenty of sunbeds, there is a very good bar service, the snacks are limited but the quality is very good, the Greek Salad is fantastic.
Thanks to the staff, who all have a smile and are very polite and helpful.
All in all a fantastic place to stay, but, the one thing this great hotel cannot control is the quality of its guests (from the UK) in particular, during our stay, one particular towie family, and their frisbee, were somewhat of a pain at the pool area, as in, they entered the pool, with their plastic disk, and everyone else felt obliged to get out, they also managed to hit several of the, multi national guests (muttering ensued) with the thing. It is unfair that people like these give the rest of us a bad reputation.

Acqua Vatos is a really lovely place - it's clean, fresh, cute and comfortable, the staff are proactively helpful and the pool is lovely. The location is great - really close to Kamari beach and bus to Fira and on to Oia.

The hotel is recently refurbished and is very cute with its colourful theme. It's clean and very comfortable - our bed was really comfy and the towels and sheets are good quality and smell freshly laundered every time.

The breakfast is varied, generous and tasty - we were late to breakfast and the cook insisted on making us fresh eggs. Staff are friendly and make effort to ensure you have all you need, be it a hand to work the air con or a restaurant recommendation.

The pool is lovely with plenty of loungers and it's a very short walk to the beach. We had a great time!

The hotel is in the heart of Kamari and a 2 minute walk to the beach. The rooms are clean and well kept with a modern flair which is a nice change. We loved the hotel but all that seems to fade into the background because it's not the location nor the hotel that make this place amazing. It's the staff. They made our stay well worth while! They were so friendly and helpful and the pool lunches were fresh and very tasty. We will definitely stay there again!

The brochures and reviews suggested something a little bit special of Acqua Vatos. The reality - this was something a little bit special.
Myself and the wife have just returned from a two week stay.
Positioned within the town of Kamari, the Acqua Vatos offers a wonderful holiday experience.
The room allocated to myself and the wife was both spacious and bright rather than the rather than the dour offering that you could get elsewhere.
The rooms were cleaned daily.
Breakfast was varied each day, offering something for all continental tastes.
The pool area was maintained to a high standard with no obvious tripping hazzard or associated danger to guests/children.
The staff - first class.
Lets be honest, the attitude of hotel staff can make or break a holiday.
Each of the staff members were polite and always offering a smile and conversation.
A plus point worthy of mention was the 24/7 availability of hot drinks from the machine situated in the hotels breakfast room.
Cushioned benches and seats are situated outside the hotel reception area, offering a place to relax and enjoy a good book, or to simply take in the atmosphere. Or, after a night out, a nice place to sit and enjoy a coffee before retiring for the night.
In summary, the hotel delivers on all fronts.
I do hope that the owners of Acqua Vatos (and other associated hotels of the chain) know that they have a gem of a hotel run by the most polite and efficient staff we have ever come across. A huge thank you to the staff who all contributed to making our Acqua Vatos/Kamari/Santorini experience one of the best ever.
Thank you.

This hotel is perfect for a stay in Kamari. A short walk to the beach and restaurants, and the staff couldn't be more helpful or friendly.

Breakfast included which changes everyday and sets you up nicely for a day relaxing on the beach.

Towels available to take to the beach, so no need to pack your own.
