We stayed here on the recommendation of a colleague and were glad we did. Perfect location i.e. close to the beach and local bus stop.

It is basic but spotlessly clean. Just a couple of niggles - the room we had was very small i.e. only a little bit of room to walk round 2 sides of the bed but as this was our first visit to a Greek island, we don't know if that's the standard. Also the shower did not have a door and has approximately a 2 cm dip below the main floor. Therefore when you showered, water did spill out onto the main bathroom floor - our bathmat was constantly sodden as a result and you had to be careful on the wet floor.

The staff are absolutely lovely. Vicky on Reception was really knowledgable and helpful (and seemed to be there 24 hours a day with a smile on her face).

After staying in two other hotels during our recent trip to Santorini, we found Acqua Vatos quite basic and not meeting our expectations. It is quite a basic hotel with some modern touches, which are not enough to make a difference. The only positive was the staff who we found very friendly and always keen to help. I was disappointed that there was no free Internet access, something that other 2 or 3 star hotels offer for free.

Overall nice place to stay, but I think it is overpriced for what it offers.

All new staff since our last visit (except house keeping) but happy welcoming smiles and calm confidence just the same. Nothing is too much trouble for the lovely staff. The delightful Marianna serves a wonderful homemade breakfast with fresh pancakes, omelettes and filo pastry pies, she bakes delicious cakes and makes jam all served with a smile.
The large swimming pool and bar are very clean and comfortable. Overall a great place for all ages as rooms also available on ground floor and kamari is much flatter than the rest of the island

My husband and I visited the Acqua Vatos in July to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. it was my 2nd visit, having been the summer before I thought it an ideal location for our celebrations. On our arrival we were met with enthusiasm by manager Thanos and his small team who congratulated us before taking us to our room were candles and champagne awaited us. Our room was a lovely , modern design with perfect attention to detail. The room was cleaned daily and was spacious and comfortable. The hotel itself is very bright and friendly , your every need is catered for. Breakfasts are gorgeous with something new added to the menu each morning. The seating area around the hotel - in and out are very relaxing and the staff so friendly. As if all this wasn't enough, on 2nd to last day Thanos drove us to their sister hotel for the evening - we were given the most amazing suite at 'Dreams' which is situated on the Caldera - pure luxury with the most amzing views. That evening we sat and watched the sunset wondering what we had done to deserve such a perfect end to our holiday. the next morning we were served a breakfast of our choice on the terrace - every detail thought of. it was a truly magical experience. I cannot recommend the Acqau Vatos highly enough - so much so that i am back there for a third visit with girlfriends next June ( 2013) Thank you Thanos and team , see you next year

Room Tip: Rooms at the front and on the right side overlooking the pool area would be my choice

We have just returned back from our wonderful holiday/wedding in Santorini. The Acqua Vatos hotel is a lovely little hotel. Less than 5 minutes and you are in the heart of Kamari with all the shops/restaurants/beach, however the hotel is quiet and you wouldnt think you were so near. The hotel has recently been renovated and is very clean and contemporary. The pool area is lovely with a pool bar selling drinks and snacks at reasonable prices. There was never a problem with getting a sunbed. The staff are lovely and made our stay at Acqua Vatos lovely, they were very helpful. The breakfast catered for most peoples tastes and changed daily. On our wedding day we returned to find a bottle of champagne chilling & many congratulations from all the staff. Thank you for a wonderful stay, would definately reommend and will hopefully be back!

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.
