We have just returned from a week on Sifnos and stayed at the Margado. After extensive research on tripadvisor and elsewhere we chose the Margado as it appears to be pretty much the only hotel in Kamares with a pool. As a pool was on the 'must have' check list for my 2 children (aged 13 and 11), we booked this hotel.
It was a lovely place with large clean rooms, a pretty pool area, nice balconys, great views and free wifi (again useful with teens). Stella the owner was such a lovely host, from collecting us at the port, to advising on places to see and eat, she was a font of information in at least 4 languages!
Breakfast was 8 - 11am, so nice leisurely mornings, was served buffet-style by the pool. On Sundays the traditional Sifnosian (?) delicacy of chickpea stew was on offer too. This was cooked on the Saturday night on the open fire. I can't describe how delicious it was (make sure you are there for the weekend!).
Sitting on our balcony we could see across the bay, and watch the sun setting over the sea. Due to it's position at the top of the village, the view was beautiful, but bear in mind it is at the top of a steep hill. For this reason it might not suit families with very young children, or less able adults. This would be the only downside to the place, though it is quite a thrill driving up or down it on hired mopeds, or in our case, a jeep.
Kamares itself was my ideal holiday location, a lovely sandy beach, shallow crystal clear water, a choice of restaurants and a couple of cafes/bars, mini-markets and a couple of shops. It felt like a village that had grown organically and was not a purpose built 'resort' which we felt about Platys Yialos. It was also very quiet, and the weather at approx 30 c was perfect. High summer would be just too hot (for me) and far busier. Kamares is brilliant but we really enjoyed exploring the rest of the island in the jeep which we hired at a very reasonable rate from ProtoMoto.
