We picked this hotel after reading the reviews on TA and as usual we weren't disappointed the reviews were spot on.
The room was a bit smaller than we had expected as we had a single bed in our room as well as a double but it was spotlessly clean, the bed was really comfortable and extremely quiet. I agree completely with other reviewers on the bathroom - it was in need of refurbishment but we had no problem with the water pressure some people seem to complain about.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was extensive and yes you can have free tea and coffee all day.

We also loved the location, right at the heart of the resort but you wouldn't really know it. Only a few minutes from the beach and restaurants. We particularly liked the Dolce Cafe at the end of the street for that last nightcap before bed or lunch when we came off the beach.
The pool area was lovely and we never struggled to get a lounger whenever we turned up.

We had a brilliant holiday in Santorini and I would throughly recommend the island, the resort and the hotel. Read the other reviews they are better than mine and they are true.

Just returned from probably the best holiday ever. Santorini is a must for everyone’s Bucket List. We chose to stay at Altos Vatos, Kamari, based on TA reviews and were highly delighted with our choice.
Top of our list when choosing accommodation is the location. Not wanting to walk too far, or to hire taxies, we like to have everything near at hand. AV cannot be beaten on location. Situated right in the heart of Kamari the beach is only some 50 metres down the street and closer still are Restaurants, Shops inc mini-markets, Tour/Car Hire Agencies, Cinema, ATM, Pharmacy, Local Bus Stop for Fira (then to Oia), and Kamari Coach Tour Terminal.
Best of all, when you have had your fill of Greek and International Cuisine, right next door is the Liver Bar/Cafe. Not your usual greasy spoon British Union Jack Cafe, more like a modern Bar/Brasserie. Great place for a Full English Breakfast, Light Lunch or evening drinks.
Plus points for the AV would have to be awarded for the Swimming Pool. Very clean and twice the size of most. Plenty of comfortable loungers for everyone. Extra points too for the breakfasts. Nothing cooked, as expected with continental breakfast, except for the HB eggs, but the choice of freshly baked bread and pastries more than compensated. A nice appreciated touch was that the coffee percolator and tea making facilities were kept available all day long FOC.
Severino is an excellent host and is always to hand if you need help or just for a chat. Has a good sense of humour and is a bit tactile! All the Staff were helpful and the cleaners did a good job. Also thanks to Nikki our Thompson Rep who was often at hand and did a good professional job at the Welcome Meeting.
If I were to draw attention to any unfavourable points it would concern the tired looking bathroom. It was kept clean, but badly in need of a refurb. We were in room 104 and we did not suffer any lack of shower power as reported, indeed, I found that turned full on (Hot and Cold together) it matched my 150bar Pressure Washer!
All in all, I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone thinking of staying in Kamari.

We have been back a week and are still talking of the lovely time we had on Santorini, a really beautiful island. We stayed at the Acqua Vatos Hotel and was made to feel very welcome by the lovely Catherine and Severino, the hotel was immaculately clean and we couldn't fault the cleaners who cleaned our rooms every day. The breakfasts were lovely thanks to Olga, there was so much choice, eggs,ham&cheese, a variety of lovely fresh bread ,cereal ,fresh fruit & gorgeous Greek yoghurt & wonderful pastries,also free tea &coffee all day whenever you fancied a cup! We found Cat & Severino very helpful especially where best restaurants were& they lit lamps every night on the steps of the hotel which gave it a magical look. Eating out at night was a pleasure, there was just so much choice, we are not exactly night owls, just a walk along the promenade, find a nice restaurant , a leasurely walk back to the hotel for a drink, but we did find a couple of good restaurants, on advice from a revue we looked up side streets and found the" To Kati Allo" run by Makris Manolis & his family,its easy to find next to the kiwi chinese restuarant, we had some gorgeous meals there and truly cooked by Mama,I would without doubt recomend this place to you, also Alexandra's which is a bit dearer but exceptionally good. The Family Restaurant wasn't bad but we didn't like the No Name restaurant very much. There were some nice jewelery shops there girls! We did the Thompsons boat trip to the Caldera & really enjoyed it & learnt a lot about the volcano's & some history of Santorini! I would like to thank Cat and Severino for making our stay a pleasant one, good luck for the future Cat in whatever you choose to do.
All the best from Superman & his wife [Severino will know who this is]!

We stayed here in August and had the most fantastic holiday - such a lovely friendly hotel, with delicious breakfasts provided by Olga, on the cutest verandah. The pool is excellent (with shade provided by umbrealls and trees for those who want it). The staff are lovley and the whole place is kept beautifullly clean. This is also an excllent base from which to enjoy the rest of the island. Can't recommend it highly enough.

I stayed at the Acqua Vatos from the 13th-27th July with my husband, mom and dad. We had an excellent stay, loved the hotel and loved Kamari.

Firstly, the rooms at AV were perfect. My husband and I had a standard double which was more then adequate. It was spacious, cleaned every day, bath and hand towels were changed daily, bed changed every third day (which was plenty as the rooms had fantastic FREE air conditioning so beds didn't really get dirty!) and there was also a small fridge in the room which was great for drinks etc. The bathroom was also excellent - for greek standards! A previous review stated that the water pressure was dreadful they obviously had a bad shower as I was amazed at how good the shower was.

The pool at the AV was really big compared to the other pools that I saw when passing some of the hotels, so this was brilliant. The pool area was very clean, exactly the same as the rest of the hotel! We loved every minute that we spent round the pool. It is true that the umbrellas had to stay down most of the time because of the winds but there were still shady areas. I love the sun but my husband likes the shade and we were both more then happy! You can collect pool towels from reception and change them every couple of days so there is no need to pack your own beach towels.

The location of AV was perfect as only a very short stroll down to the beach and restaurants. The reception staff and cleaners were all great at the AV, thank you for making our stay so special.

Breakfast was great. There was no full english but certainly not needed as the variety to eat was wonderful. There was fresh fruit, sweet and savory pasteries, greek yoghurt, cereal, ham, cheese, bread........................ the list is endless! Tea and coffee was also available all day to help yourself to. Olga who worked in the kitchen was lovely!

We did go on a trip to see the rest of the island and also hired a car but when we get to return to Santorini we will definitely stay in Kamari at the Acqua Vatos again - 10/10.
