Arion Bay Hotel3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Was eating lunch at Arion Bay, on the beach and the owners children started throwing rocks at the strays dogs. Horrible to see. Vile little children. Would never eat here again and would not support a business with that attitude towards animals. Avoid this horrible hotel.
Only just come back from Santorini after staying for a week with my family. The hotel itself was lovely, Elias and his staff made sure we were well looked after and were enjoying ourselves. Also, in the evening, Elias likes to entertain his guests with his cheerful banter. The island is absolutely stunning, we hired quad bikes to get around (which I would recommend) as you do not want to miss out on seeing everything around the island. We avoided the restaurants along the beach and tried out the traditional Greek restaurants which were recommended to us (Elias will recommend if you ask). The food at these restaurants were amazing. Going into Oia is a must, it's so beautiful. Check out everything around the island while you can. I would definitely return again, and recommend this place to others.
We're in the Arion Bay hotel between 07.08.17 and 11.08.17. This hotel was a "dark horse" for us, it was an additional option provided by our touristic agency because we weren't received the reservation approval from another hotel. And the Arion Bay was a correct choice - located on the Black beach in Kamari, customer-friendly stuff, clean room, Wi-Fi which working not only in the hotel, but on the beach too. Breakfast was very good. One small thing - not enough hangers and shelfs in the bathroom. And no TV in the room, but if you're coming to Santorini you don't need the TV :-).
We visited the hotel for two nights we had a very nice and comfortable room by the pool. Very clean and spacious. Personnel is very professional and friendly and breakfast is just fine! Definitely a value for money will visit again !
My friends and I visited this hotel again in May 17, we had also been in May 15 and thought it was brilliant. Our second visit was as good as the first time. We were all in the annexe part of the hotel at the Side of Kings Restaurant, it has a small pool at the front, where we had 2 rooms and it also has a jacuzzi pool at the back and further sunbeds and chairs etc and its very quiet. The rooms are specious, exceptionally clean and modern, they have a fridge, air con and a large mirror and well lit (essential for mature ladies getting ready at night!). The beds are comfortable with nice bedding. Everyone who stays there are friendly and of course Elias talks to all of his guest, he is genuinely concerned that his guests enjoy their holiday and always happy to help. We were planning a small surprise party for one of our group and he organised a local bakery to bake and deliver a cake for us, whch was absolutely delicious. There are a number of great restaurants near the hotel if you go left out of the entrance, there are many more if you go right but we found the ones to the left of a better quality for the same prices. The beach is directly in front of the hotel so you can hear the waves lapping as you sit on your balcony (if you have a sea view room). The breakfast is simple but tasty and ranges from Cereals, Fruit, Yoghurts to eggs and bacon etc. The only downside is that The Kings Restaurant next door play their music quite loud during the day (ear plugs!) but you can use their comfortable sunbeds on the beach if you buy a drink from them. I have recommended this hotel to family who are going later this year, I'm sure they will love it. Elias was waiting for some sunbeds to arrive to have on the beach but they had not turned up before we left, will just have to go back and try them out!
Came most evenings during our recent holiday. Elias is the perfect host. Loads of improvements made this year. The bar has had a makeover and plans for the beach look amazing! This wonderful hotel is just across from the beach with stunning views. We didn't stay here but all the guests gather at the bar in the evening and they absolutely love it. Elias can talk to all nationalities - as proved when around the bar there were English, German and Greeks - amazing !! It's a lovely place to spend the evening and Elias and Irini are great to be around. Give it a try it's lovely 😎
We had an amazing time here, we stayed in the ground floor superior rooms and they were fabulous.... very large, clean, modern, comfortable bed, amazing bathroom and with a lovely terrace overlooking the pool. Air con and fridge, both of which worked really well, included in the price of the holiday. Location is pretty much perfect, on the quieter part of the promenade just steps from the beach with loads of great restaurants and tavernas on your doorstep. Breakfast buffet was great with scrambled egg, bacon and sausage as well as continental and plenty of it. The poolside bar is fantastic, pretty busy in the evening as most of the hotel guests seem to return there after their evening meal and its not surprising as Elias the owner who runs it is an absolute star and the perfect host!...Tanya who looks after the bar during the day is also very friendly and helpful. This was our second stay in Kamari and and we will definitely come back as we love Santorini and Kamari is a great little resort, when we do we would definitely stay in this hotel, can't fault anything about it and would not hesitate to recommend to anyone!...thank you Irini, Elias and the team for making our holiday so special x
perfect vication !! great staff EIlias is great f... google !! good location perfect sea shor great breakfast very very clean we enjoy very much ............. .... .... ... very recomended good restorants and good atmosfir all around
This is our second year in a row visiting Arion Bay and for sure is not going to be our last one... It's a magical spot right in front of the beach with Elias making your stay special. Excellent rooms and great breakfast (eggs, bacon, fruits etc). Also, i liked the fact that there is no TV in the rooms, letting you disconnect immediately and enjoy your holidays since the first day. As always, it's highly recommneded.
As a last minute booking this was the only available hotel (5/7 – 12/7) and we were absolutely delighted with the result. The Manager, Elia, is an excellent host and is a font of information with regards to restaurants, bars etc – he will also organise booking restaurant tables and taxis too. The hotel is as good as on the beach and breakfast is taken by the pool in view of the breaking waves. Our room was basic (sea view with balcony) but kept spotlessly clean and the air conditioning was quietly efficient. The majority of guests seemed to be returnees, some for as many as the past 15 years, which speaks volumes for Elia and his team. Of an evening, the pool bar has quite a buzz about it and cocktails and shots are distributed with ease and charm. Should we return to Santorini, we would have no hesitation whatsoever in staying here again.
