We have just had 4 nights here last week 9th to 13th July. it was an excellent choice after reading the reviews from other guests who had previously stayed there and i wasn't dissapointed. we had 2 double rooms on the first floor. both air/con, the bathrooms were very modern. excellent water pressure. t.v in rooms which can get the BBC World news. not a bad size fridge in the rooms. bed linen was changed daily along with the towels,.good lighting also in the room and bathroom.the breakfast started at 8am to 10am. but most times it was ready for you to help yourself about 7.45am.. 2 selections of cereals, selection of herbal n' normal teas, jucies, lovely soft fresh natural yogurt, bowls of fresh fruit of sliced peaches, water melon,or mixed fresh fruit which was varied each day. jar of honey also to pour over the fresh yogurt.. hmmm..selection of freshly cut crusty brown n white bread,with different jams.. selection of cold sliced meats and cheese, boiled eggs with holders. it wasn't to much or to little!!.. it filled me up until late afternoon. ALL the staff were excellent towards us. nothing was to much bother for them to help us out. they can organise car or bike rentals for you which they kindly done for me and the rates were the same as if i went and looked around the shops myself. and the rental company even delivered the car at the hotel at 7,30pm so we could get going early the next day. we left it in the car park like i was told to, and to leave the keys under the seat for them to collect later the next evening at 7.30pm..got charged 38 euros, group A car, plus extra 9 euros (optional) for the full insurance. plus i put in 13 euros in the tank for fuel for our day travelling around santorini. the swimming pool and garden areas were very very clean.. shower was at poolside to SHOWER yourself !! before entering the pool so not to put your body fluids into the pool. i did not see many of the guests do this.. couple of the young guys playing on the pool last week kept clearing their noses while in the pool,, i did mention this to them about not being very hygenic,SO! PLEASE SHOWER BEFORE YOU ENTER THE POOL. and you wont come down with other peoples virus and germs. THANKS... My friend was staying at the Kamari Beach Hotel along the beach.. he was NOT happy with his room. it was smelly from the toilet area and the room wasn't that great. i showed him my room at the Hippocampus. and he said that my room was 100% better then his one.... book carefully!. believe me.. this is a lovely quiet hotel, 50meters from the beach, near the publc car park.. and it has a lovely taverna across the road on the corner which serves lovely 'Gyros' and other greek food.. with a nice cold Mythos beer to have. I would go back to the Hippocampus ASAP. Great Stay...
