The pros-clean room, fluffy towels, large bathroom, stocked with essentials. A variety of foods and beverages at breakfast.Reception staff was friendly and helpful. Set up our car transfers and gave us an extra key card to charhe work computer when out of room. Landscaping was beautiful and well maintained. Pathways and patio swept daily. Pool area had sunbeds, a large shallow end but hot tub was same temp as pool. Pool bar has the friendliest staff who was awesome with the guests, especially w/the kids. He made the hotel stay a pleasure! Cons-there are pool hours from 10 to 7. So basically it opens when you leave for a tour and closes by the time you return (or sooner during our stay). Manager- One morning, at breakfast, we packed up 5 sandwiches to go. Instead of the manager saying, our policy is to not remove food from dining hall so going forward please don't do this again. He says that food is to only be eaten in the dining all and never to be removed. That he is not a supermarket, that there will not be enough food for other guests and that I should read the policy. Explained that during our 5 day stay this was the only time we removed food. That the food is not stolen, it was paid for and that it would be a shame for it to go to waste, which it did. I suggested he post the pool and food policy online so people can decide whether to book here. No outlet in bathroom, or overhead lighting. Had me carry an ironing board from reception.  Too many cons to book here again.

This hotel is excellent. Perfect grounds, 5 minute walk to beach and all the restaurants, 10 minute walk to bus stop to Oia. This hotel is in a beach town Kamari. Take bus to Fira and another bus to Oia to see the famous blue dome churches. Beautiful pool at the hotel. Very good breakfast. Hotel is perfect.

Hidden Gem In Santorini
Hidden gem. Away from busy tourist areas, but within a ten minute walk to the most beautiful black sand beach lined with literally more than a hundred outdoor restaurants. The hotel property is very elegant with a nice pool and friendly staff. The only thing I would want you to know is that all the water in your room is salt water.

Lovely hotel
This is the 4th and last hotel we stayed in our trip, we have been hotel hopping before and after our wedding. Theona is lovely, she looked after us really well. She even welcomed us with a complementary bottle of wine in our room with a note for us that is so sweet. She even gave us a little tote bag, fridge magnet and pencils for the girls to remember them by. Spyros the bar man is amazing too, while waiting for our room, he ensured we are well hydrated coz it was really hot, unlimited water even made us iced coffee and lemonade for the girls. Hotel is 5min walk to the beach. We have rented a car as we travel around the island. Room is clean and staff are friendly. Buffet breakfast is available with a strict measures to protect everyone from Covid. I just there is more hot food breakfast option but otherwise it was good. The pool is clean.

Amazing service throughout
I was part of a large group of people who travelled to the Rivari for a wedding on the Island. From arrival, we were treated with the utmost care and respect. The staff here are fantastic, and can’t do enough for you, there was even assistance when we required safety pins for our flowers on our suits! The hotel, although basic, is well maintained and clean throughout, and although the included breakfast is limited, the food served at the pool bar is delicious and plentiful - I highly recommend the pizzas, the gyros and the club sandwich! Thanks again to all the staff at the Rivari for an incredible time.
