Certificate of Excellence
The Kavalari, a small unique hotel originally a captain's house, the property retains its traditional island architectural style. Situated on the rim of the Caldera, 300m above the sea, the property has exterior stairways which wind down the cliff face to various flowered terraces overlooking the volcano. Rooms are built directly into the cliff with access to various flowered terraces where guests relax enjoying beautiful surroundings and spectacular sunsets.

This hotel is located right on the picturesque cliff side in Fira, the views are spectacular! Keep in mind that due to the location, there are lots of steep stairs you will have to contend with to get up and down from the main check in to your room. The hotel is fairly basic, b

Really enjoyed our time staying at the Hotel Kavalari. We stayed in room 14. A very small room but an awesome view from our balcony. We spent a lot of time enjoying our view. The front desk staff was awesome and was very helpful. Only drawback was the bellhop we nicknamed Lurch.

Before leaving UK they provided good communication by email and arranged pick up from the airport which was a great start to the holiday. I was initially worried about how 'lively' it would be in the evening in the busiest part of Santorini but it was surprisingly quiet. The room

The management was more than accommodating, helping us with many details, such as arranging transportation when requested, carrying luggage to and from our room, etc. The location is very central and convenient to shopping and restaurants, but be warned, there are many, many stai

Is there anywhere to sunbathe I the day time, or am I looking in a different area for this?
The Hotel has a small splash pool but does have a few loungers facing the sea.

Is the cave apartment towards the top or lower down? van it accommodate 3 adults and does it have a view? Thanks in advance
A lot of the rooms are built into the hill so not sure what is designated as the "cave room". Ours was near the top and was definitely a cave, the room didn't have a view but you just walk out doors and right outside your room is a patio area with lots of seating and you can enjoy the view there. This place is AMAZING, you will love this hotel.

Not very sure but buses frequent ferry terminal. Hotel is walking distance from bus station and cab station. Cabs take about 25-30 minutes or less from airport and 20 euro during day time.

"Gay friendly hotel and staff are wonderful"
"Do they have 3 Star rooms? Not sure."
"Avoid the cave rooms at all costs...however, I'm not sure this hotel will honor your requests."
"Rooms on the 1st and 2nd level have chairs outside the room for a terrace experience."
"Check for the view"
