We stayed here for 3 nights for the first part of our honeymoon in Santorini. When we arrived George met us at the gate and carried ur bags to the room for us! We had only been able to book a double room and not a suite as we had initially wanted to do as we were only staying 3 nights. George explained that the master suite was available for 2 nights and we would then have to move into a double room for the last night. George said that he would move our belongings for us so that we didn't need to!! The master suite was lovely and spacious with a lounge area, bedroom, bathroom and 2 balconies, one overlooking the gardens and one with a slight pool view. The second bedroom was smaller and had a balcony overlooking the gardens. The suite also had a proper shower and bath which prevented the bathroom flooding. The second bathroom was more typically greek and yes, the bathroom did flood!!! George gave us the suite at a lower price also which was good!
The hotel is lovely, as is the big pool and comfortable sunbeds, also the comfy couches and chairs which you can relax and have a beer on! The beer you can buy at the hotel is relatively cheap at around 3 euros for a large bottle, compared to some of the other bars in the area.
At night, it is so romantic as the candles lighting the entrance to the hotel and also in the reception area are lit. Whilst we were there, people were taking photos of the outside of the hotel as it is so pretty with a lovely big pink flowered tree!
Breakfast is continental with fresh pastries, which I am not a big fan of, but which my husband loved! There is indoor area for eating and also a lovely terrace too where you can eat your breakfast.
George and Kate were really helpful on where to go to eat and we even got 10% discount at a restaurant as we said that George had recommended it to us as he eats there too!
When we were moving onto our second destination George booked us a taxi with other guests from the hotel who were going to the same place which made the journey cost less. This was good as the taxi's are expensive in Santorini. George even spoke to nour onward hotel, in greek and explained that we would be there soon and took our bags to the taxi when it arrived.
The hotel is about 5 minutes from the beach and restaurants opposite a gyros shop which is lovely and only 2.50 euros!!!!
The hotel is lovely and very relaxing. If we were to return to Kamari again, then we would not stay anywhere else apart from the Acqua Vatos hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. Acqua Vatos is ideal for families with kids, since there are rooms designed and equipped especially for them. The XXL pool is a star attraction for adults and children of any age. ... more less
