We found this little gem of a place in the centre of Kamari (Santorini) it was perfect from beginning to end. We booked direct and paid on arrival, prior to this we found the team great at emailing us any questions we had about the room / location / venue and so we were very confident of getting what we booked and we were not disappointed at all. Staff - first class service and excellent communications and offer of help always available, they provided a taxi transfer to / from the airport and always ready to meet your needs with a friendly smile, you will be an extended member of the family from when you arrive to when you leave. Location - on a flat beach front location in the flat town of kamari, pool / beach / restaurants / car hire / ATM's / pharmacy / shops / supermarkets all within approx 10-20 mins on promenade / paving area. Free use of beach beds at Arion Bay and at this time of year any other beach beds were also free if you want to explore further afield (general rule is buy a drink and the beds are free wherever you go in Santorini. Taxi's / local bus (coach) service to the rets of the island / car hire (recommended) from Motorinn (located at the other end of kamari - 15 mins stroll) local boat service every 30 mins from Kamari to Perisa bay (6 euros each). Lovely just to walk about and admire the views. Equally only a 20 -30 min will get you to either end of Santorini for the stunning views, but nice to return to Kamari for beach and chill out. Rooms - 2 storey rooms, some with steps, we had a ground floor balcony with sea / pool view within 5-10 metres away. They consisted of a lounge area / dressing table / large double bed / wardrobe (hangers and safety box all free) bathroom with shower WC & sink all cleaned every day and changed linen & towels if you wanted. Free beach towels also provided for the stay. AC unit in the room including a fridge and if you wanted anything else you only needed to ask Ilias and his team and they will help you. Hotel - small boutique style offering B&B to suit all tastes, you could eat breakfast next to the bar or the pool, or have on your own balcony / terrace area. The bar was open all day and a lovely place to sit and unwind with Ilias providing you first class information and advice to aid your day. All in all a first class hotel / staff providing the very best Santorini has to offer, you won't be disappointed at all. This is one of those lovely places we will be returning too without fail.…
This is a gorgeous family owned and run beachfront hotel on Kamari beach, east of Santorini. Asteria was amazing to deal with by email while booking and confirming. Our room was overlooking the pool and beach. Breakfast daily was very generous and extremely fresh produce with fruits, meats, cheese, cereals, breads, eggs and much more. Elias who manages the day to day running and also runs the bar was so helpful. Everyone were so helpful, friendly and accommodating. We will definitely come back and stay here.
After a very long flight delay we arrived at the hotel to be warmly greeted. We were shown to our room swiftly. This is a beautiful hotel right next to the beach. It is very quiet, the rooms are lovely and the breakfast is very good. The pool area is delightful. The staff are so friendly and helpful and the poolside bar serves drinks with smiles. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel.
Very clean hotel with excellent hosts. Asteria, Vaggelis and Elias run a very nice family business in Kamari, situated few meters from the sea and at one end of the long pedestrian road at Kamari beach that is full of restaurants and cafes. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, pool, Mediterranean breakfast and cocktails at the bar made by Elias himself are few of what you should expect to find.
My mum and I stayed here for a week in October 2021 in a twin room. The rooms were basic which is fairly normal in Greece, however they were freshly decorated and very clean. Room number 19 came with absolutely stunning views of the sea and the hotels private beach. The breakfast offering was varied and tasty. The family couldn’t do enough to ensure your stay was enjoyable and comfortable.
My birthday present from my boyfriend was 5 nights in Santorini, Kamari at Arion Bay. Great hotel where the people immediately make you feel at home. They clean the rooms every day. The beach is in front of the hotel. You must try Arion Bay! Thank you Elias and the team!🇹🇩🇬🇷
Location is great for relaxing and quiet holiday right in front to the beach - where they provide sun beds free of charge for residents. Very accessible especially coming from the airport just 5 mins away. We had been upgraded to a superior sea view room at no extra charge. The room was a good size with a balcony and had everything we needed (WiFi, AirCon, in-room safe etc.). The buffet breakfast was always fresh and delicious with loads of choice. The staff of the hotel are very accommodating and very helpful in everything. Cocktail bar is lovely to have drinks in the evening. All in all Arion Bay offered amazing value for money. We would definitely come back!
Booked through Travel Republic early in the year. The hotel is situated right on the beach front at Kamari. We were welcomed by our host, Ilias, who is the fountain of all knowledge regarding Santorini. Our room, A8, was lovely with its own little balcony over looking the courtyard and beautiful pink flowering trees. Breakfast was good with lots of choices of warm and cold foods. As a decaf drinker the hotel has especially brought a tin of decaf coffee in for me, nothing was too much trouble. Staff were very nice, especially Euralia, she worked so hard over the week we were there, preparing breakfast and housekeeping. This hotel is perfect for weeks getaway, close enough to restaurants and bus stops to take trips round the island. By the way the hotel has their own beach front area with lovely sun loungers and umbrellas. I would defiantly return here.…
My wife Maria and I arrived mid afternoon at the Arion Bay only to be informed that we had been upgraded to a superior sea view room at no extra charge, what a room and what a view. The room was fantastic, spotlessly clean with free air con, free safe, free WiFi and a good size fridge for those cold beers. The balcony was large, comfortable with views over the pool and the beach. The hotel grounds and pool area were kept immaculately clean with very comfortable sun beds around the pool. The beach sun beds, literally a 1 minute walk from the hotel, were even more comfortable with 4” thick mattresses. Bar service around the pool and beach is available and the young couple who run the bar through the day are friendly and hard working. There was was plenty of choice for breakfast and to sit and eat around the pool with views out to sea was very relaxing. Many guests would return from evenings out and congregate around the bar with Elias until the early hours enjoying his and each other’s company. There was definite homely feel to the hotel with many guests repeat visitors, one young lady arrived a couple of days after us only to drop her cases at the bar and say “ Ha......home again “ it does make you feel that way. A big thanks to everyone at Arion bay for making our stay unforgettable, we will be joining the repeat gang and return next year Thanks again Ian & Maria…
Great hotel where the people immediately make you feel at home. Rooms are renovated and clean. Nice and small scale hotel. The beach is across the street and a great base to visit the rest of the island or to relax. Definitely to be repeated!
