My favorite place to stay when on holiday in Santorini. Clean rooms, very comfortable beds and great bathrooms which have been upgraded. Breakfast tasty and replenished often. Nice to have the choice of pool or sea. Love the family running this place - Diane and Spyros always ready to answer questions and offer assistance. Evie running the Blue Moon bar (and Ani) offer great cocktails around the pool, day and night. One last note - LOVE the fact that the hotel hasn't put out beach beds and umbrellas on the beach because you have a view to the beautiful sea. All the other places have lounge chairs and umbrellas which really restricts your view. I will come back 100%

Room Tip: upper sea view

Nice hotel located on the beach (though no beach chairs available). Pool was definitely one of the best we saw and air conditioning worked quite well. They were kind enough to let us check in early since our room was available and supplied a pack and play crib for our toddler. No problems getting a hot shower (even when I took it past 8:30). Breakfast was ok- the same cold cuts, fruit bowl, plain cereal and yogurt, scrambled eggs, ham, and sausage everyday.

Biggest complaints are the wifi was terrible and their website states they offer free airport pick up when you book with them-- they apparently switched that to drop off and apparently aren't even offering that at the moment. Definitely should update website. Also (for those who care) no TVs in rooms.

Overall Kamari is a lot more family friendly and less crowded than other places we visited in Santorini and the Boathouse is a great home base to explore the island!

Hello jlbond, Thank you for your positive review of our hotel we do appreciate it! We wanted to just clarify two of your valid statements to trip advisor readers. Firstly, there are many beach sun beds and umbrellas very close to The Boathouse (in front of our restaurant Almira) although directly in front of our hotel is the only spot along the entire beach front strip of Kamari that the veiw of the beach and sea is not impeded by umbrellas, we actually have to rent the beach from the city and we choose not to clutter it as so our guests can enjoy a clear Sea Veiw - we will never change this and guest after guest commends us for this. Secondly, we offer complimentary airport pickups upon arrival if the room is booked directly through our website. Rooms booked through 3rd party websites can book transfers with us at a minimal cost. When you were here we were having our car serviced and that is why we gave you 20 Euros cash for the taxi to the airport.

Just back from another stay at the Boathouse, once again everything was excellent. The team of Diane Spyros Evie Barbara Anna and Selma go out of their way to ensure your stay is enjoyable. Breakfast is truly superb with a great choice of local produce fruit and breads. Ignore any reviews lower than 4 they must have stayed somewhere else

This beachfront property is family run and has a nice traditional feel. The rooms are traditional Greek decor with modern fixtures. The Showers are excellent, and the beds are very comfortable.

We stopped in the honeymoon suite alongside our twins and there was plenty of room for all. The twins loved the pool, and we many a day happily soaking up the sun whilst they played. We were part of a large group who had booked several rooms, all of whom spoke warmly about their stay.

The Staff were incredibly friendly, In particular the evening barman Anni who was equally good with the adults and the twins / Other children. Anni is an asset to the hotel, and all commented on how good he was.

Breakfast was nice; a choice of continental / hot food. It is also a great location for the beach/ Kamari/ The rest of the island.

If we were to be over critical is that there are probably not enough sunbeds, but there are plenty of chairs and tables. This would not put us of staying again, and is only a minor observation.

We would highly recommend this Hotel.

What a jewel on the Aegean Sea. This family owned hotel is a must to be visited. My son, his girlfriend and I visited this wonderful hotel in May. We were amazed how close this hotel was to the beach. I sat by the pool, sipping on a great white wine, while they went to the beach. I was please to see so many restaurants close by to have lunch at. There was even a little corner store that was fun to shop at. The hotel's pool and adjacent bar was very welcoming and quiet. They were just steps from the ground floor rooms that had little front porches which looked out on to the beach and pool. On the second floor were balconies that lead to other bedrooms. In the back of the hotel, were rooms that faced private patios and garden. We could not have picked a more pleasant place to stay. Spyros , Diane and their daughter Evi were the best hosts and we will be definitely be coming back here again.
