We recently visited Santorini for a family wedding and we had all booked into different hotels around Kamari. Of the hotels that we stayed in, the Sea Side Hotel was without a doubt our favourite.
Upon arrival, after a 5 hour delay, the guy from my hotel had not turned up to collect me and my 1 year old daughter. The driver from the Sea Side insisted on seeing us back to our hotel also and refused to allow us to wait after ringing and finding out that we would have a wait in the dark to look forward to.
The staff were very hospitable and friendly and did not distinguish between the guests that were booked in there and the rest of us. They were helpful, professional and friendly an dnothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms and communcal areas are kept very clean and looked beautiful on the wedding pictures (which they let us take around the pool area despite the bride and groom no being booked in there). My daughter celebrated her first birthday whilst we were there and they all made a point of seeking us and and wishing her happy birthday. They made us feel very welcome and I cannot speak too highly of our experience of them.
When we told them we were there for a wedding, they asked if we had booked something as they could easily accomodate us. Of course we had already booked but in hindsight I wish we had booked the wedding through the Sea Side Hotel.
We had booked a BBQ on the beach for the wedding meal but there was some confusion with the bridal suite as well as the meal booking which they seemed to have lost the details of (despite us having piad a sizeable deposit, we had the emails with us confirming all the details). The place that we booked did sort everything and the meal and service were fantastic but I cannot help but think that we would have had a much less stressful time had we just booked through the SeaSide hotel in the first place. We did not have a BBQ in the traditional sense, it was more of a sit down grill dinner served at the table, something which many of the hotels in Kamari serve regularly but priced up due to it being a wedding dinner. The owner lives on site during the holiday season with his family and would be on hand to deal with any queries or concerns. They would have taken a very proactive approach to making sure everything met with our expectations and that we all had the wedding of our dreams in the beach. They have previously catered for weddings, it is just a shame that it was not clear on their website or a higher hit on google as this would have been ideal. We did eat the mixed grill at the Sea Side Restaurant and found it to be delicious and half the price of the wedding meal we had pre-booked.
I cannot recommend this hotel enough and hope to be returning to this hotel with my husband in the near future as he missed the holiday due to work commitments.
