We stayed in thalassa hotel in kamari for a week in july because we were getting married in santorini. I booked it through Thomas cook. there were 31 of us in total and 26 stayed in Thalassa hotel. I was a bit worried about staying in this hotel because I looked on here a few days before we were due to fly out for the wedding, I got really upset worrying that it would be awful and that all our guests would hate me for choosing this hotel! however it was great, and I promised myself I would write this review when I got back incase anyone else was worrying! I forget tho...but better late than never!
rooms are basic but to be honest that's what you get in Greece, we had the junior suite and that was great, our guests had more basic rooms but they were happy. in fact they had a better shower than us, ours in the junior suite was a bit rubbish with the water pressure but nobody else had problems. The décor was nice in the room, all the usual blue and white, was nice.
Staff were lovely around the hotel, ive seen some reviews of people moaning because Russians got treated better or something? well in my mind the staff were nice to everyone. they even looked after my wedding cake for me. we booked half board and the food was nice, ate there every morning and for 3 tea time meals, there was enough for and good choice, wouldn't eat there all the time as there are so many gorgeous restaurants in kamari, but it did us fine! even free wine and soft drinks. The hotel need a lick of paint, but it actually looks really nice, the pool area and beach are great too. there is a dirt track walk to the main part of kamari, its a bit dodgy in the dark and we did have a member of our party fall in a ditch but there was a lot of alcohol involved! do yourself a favour and take a torch with you to prevent any accidents. it would be great if some lights were put down the road to make it safer but never mind.
there are a lots of low flying planes near the hotel but who cares! always a good talking point! also it means a short transfer to the airport.
kamari is a brilliant place, great for couples and families and we partied there every night! love boat was our fave bar and we stayed there till 4am on the night of our wedding and the owner drove us back to the hotel because I had my wedding dress on! loads to do and see in santorini, very pretty romantic place. i'm so glad we chose it as our wedding destination and I was happy with thalassa hotel too.
TIP: take beach/jelly shoes with you because santorini beaches are rocky and painful on feet!
Helen and matt, wirral
