Reviewed June 28, 2013

Small and friendly hotel, fantastic service from the hardworking team.
Location is back from the beach (2 min walk) and is close to everything in Kamari.
Very good quality breakfast. The whole hotel is decorated in a very stylish manner, which gives it a great vibe. Nice pool although not that much room around it. We tended to use the beach (White Restaurant). Room size was OK for what we paid. Don't expect great views as this is a town centre hotel, albeit in a very quiet location. Others have criticised the fact that the entrance is straight onto the road with no pavement. We didn't find this an issue as the hotel is 30m from a sharp corner and there are speed bumps on the road either side of the entrance. The bus stop is only 50m away, with excellent bus services. Take the reception staff's restaurant recommendations, they are really good. My only complaint, whoever designed the bathroom lighting has never had to shave !! One downlighter over the sink doesn't work...
Would we stay again absolutely....

What a fantastic time we had on our second visit to Kamari, but our first visit to Acqua Vatos. This hotel, though small is certainly perfectly formed. The use of the space was fantastic, With a small internet cafe, a library, bar, pool bar, reception and breakfast room all clean, tidy and with a modern feel. Our room was fab..it was cool, but also came with air-conditioning, the bathroom was excellent...in a nutshell perfect for us!! The staff at this hotel were exceptional!! All happy, all ready to help you if you needed it..complete contrast to our one and only visit to Turkey! Would we return you betcha...if you are a couple you will love it. Highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Lower level rooms are a bit cooler though there is air-conditioning

We spent the second week of our honeymoon at Acqua Vatos after staying at their sister hotel (Above Blue) for the first week, up in Imerovigli. Kamari is like a different world in comparison to the first week of our stay but it served a great purpose and allowed us to see both sides of the island. Acqua Vatos is very clean and a well kept hotel. The staff there are very efficient and friendly (thank you to Thanos, Elina and Joanna) and were very knowlegable when it came to recommendations for restaurants etc. We stayed in the Master Suite which was very spacious, but the only reason that this review gets 4 stars is that we felt that for a Master Suite, it was missing a little something special. Despite it's size which was much bigger than the other rooms, the air conditioning was very noisy and although it was decorated nicely and very clean, it lacked a certain "wow" factor for the best room in the hotel. It also didn't have an official barman and bar when you returned in the evenings which was something we like to enjoy when we stay in Greece. The breakfast room was lovely and beautifully decorated - there was lots of choice for breakfast and it was served until 11am (which was good for us). The pool area is large but busy - we preferred the beach which had a lovely breeze and we rented sunbeds at Cafe Classico for this. Acqua Vatos provided good service when it came to organising taxis and excursions - they were very efficient when it came to co-ordinating with the other hotel we stayed in. We found Kamari, although not as luxurious as Imerovigli, to be lively and friendly. We ate at lots of lovely tavernas and drank cocktails afterwards at Ethnic Bar in the evenings. The location for the beach and restaurants is ideal, but it is the staff that makes this hotel truly friendly and great.

We have just returned from 10 night stay at the Acqua Vatos before moving to their sister hotel Dreams Luxury Suites.

What an I say other than that we absolutely loved this little gem of a hotel. The staff Thanos, Elena and Joanna are just wonderful, and went out of their way to help us plan our itinerary, as we had travelled independently and didn't have a tour rep. To be honest they were better than any tour rep :-)

We were in room 113 which was a junior suite and was lovely with a huge balcony.

The staff always had a smile on their faces, even the ladies who clean the rooms and the lady doing the breakfasts, they are such a lovely a lovely team, and make you feel so welcome.

If you are planning on booking this hotel, don't hesitate, you will love it. We will certainly be back to the Acqua Vatos and have told all our friends and family to pay them a visit - you won't regret it.

Elaine & Mick xxx

We visited at the end of May, and upon arrival were greeted and swiftly checkedin and shown to our room, which was on the first floor. Our overall opinion is that the staff are better that the facilities. Anything that we needed to know or required was given its immediate attension and to our satisfaction. the food at breckfast was basic but fine. The hotel itself is centrally located, adjacent to the local bus route, which we found convenient to travel to Fera and beyond. As for our room we found it was small and the bed was sticky at night due to the rubber lined mattress protector. We put the pool towels under us at night to help. The bathroom was small, without a window and the lighting meant that shaving was done but feel. The building was just showing signs of being tired.
Would we stay here again?, only after looking elsewhere.

We've just got back from our honeymoon, the staff were very friendly, we were welcomed with a nice drink and there was a bottle of bubbly chilled in the fridge for us which was a nice touch.
The room was nice and modern. The pool was lovely.
The only downside to this hotel was the breakfast, We knew it was self service, although the choice was random (Leek and cheese pie) all the supposed hot food was stone cold e.g bacon / fried eggs and scrambled. We found ourselves getting tasty treats for breakfast from the bakery only a stones throw away.
