“TOO BASIC EVEN FOR GREECE !”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2011

Good central location,pretty frontage,nice sunny pool area,Maria nice enough,an even better dog but the rooms are now too basic.This is what i expected thirty years ago.Its not cheap now to visit Greece,so its about time they brought the standards up.Its very clean and quiet,but if i was you i would pay a bit extra when you get there and ask Maria for an upgrade.The rooms are a big improvement and altogether much nicer.

We stayed here for 4 nights in mid September and were allocated to Rm 14--very nice and spacious. However, some of the other guests were not as complimentary about their rooms. Hotel has a small pool but is very close to the beach --2 minutes walk and is close by all shops , bars and restaurants
Perfectly located and most enjoyable overall

Taking account of the price this is an excellent hotel in kamari. It is well located, close to beach, supermarket and bus stop, and not noisy. The rooms are kept very clean and are comfortable. The shower is basic but adequate for a beach holiday. My main tip is to either drive round or take a boat round the whole of santorini on the first day so you can get a quick view of all that it has to offer and decide what you wish to focus on. Unless you have experience of driving a scooter up a steep hill while turning a sharp corner I would recommend the quad bike or a car. Enjoy!

We stayed at the Maria Preka for a week in August 2011. When we arrived the owner was waiting outside to greet us and show us to the room.

We had a studio room with a double bed, separate kitchen area, bathroom and balcony (above which was a beautiful tree covered in bright pink flowers). The room had everything i'd expect in self catering accomodation. Air conditioning is available for an extra charge - we found it well worth paying for in August.

The hotel has its own swimming pool. It's a fairly small pool, but fine for cooling off in the hot Santorini sun! It also had plenty of sunloungers - we never had any problem getting one. You are also only 2 minutes walk away from the beach in Kamari (but take flip flops / shoes to swim in as the black sand gets very hot in the sun).

The room and communal hotel areas were kept very, very clean. The room was cleaned every day.

Santorini itself is a great place to visit, lots to see and do and the weather was hot and sunny every day. A boat trip round the caldera, with a walk up the volcano and a swim in the hot springs was a highlight of our trip. Sunsets from Fira and Oia also a must. Art Space winery just putside Kamari is a good place to visit. for 2.5 Euros the owner showed us round the old winery and art gallery, and the modern winery before we tasted a selection of his wines. Buses round the island are easy to use (if a bit crowded).

If a friend was visiting Santorini, I would definitely recomend the Maria Preka.
