Afrodite Venus Beach Hotel & Spa, Kamari greece
No weather data found for [, ”Santorini”, ”Santorini”, horizontal]
In a good location on the beach and central to amenities. Although this is a spa hotel which gives the impression of a more upmarket choice, it is lively and popular with young backpackers, making the atmosphere unsuitable for families or guests looking for relaxation.
A rather disjointed property, comprising 2 hotels which have merged, leaving unused areas that guests have to walk past to get to the beach, creating an untidy emptiness in places. The reception and restaurant at the Afrodite block are modern and the beach bar and restaurant are particularly charming.
There are 2 entrances. The original Venus Beach entrance at the beach has attractive stonework and the Afrodite Venus Beach entrance is on a quiet side street, 150 metres back from the beach.
Consists of 4 blocks of varying levels, built in a local style but plainer than most, without much character. Painted in off-white, with reasonably sized concrete fronted balconies in all rooms.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: All rooms
Reception and lobby are located in the Afroditi block, which is spacious and bright, with floor to ceiling windows, pale wooden furnishings and low level leather sofas in white and rust.
Main restaurant is modern with traditional touches. The black shiny seating and metallic tables are complimented by rock features, orange pillars and mythological murals painted on the walls. The beach entrance has an unused reception desk and breakfast room with traditional blue wooden furnishings and there is a jewellers and travel agent in the lobby.
Small palms and hedges with stone walls surround all areas. The main pool has metal entry steps, a separate childre’s pool, busy tiled surround, with further elevated sunbathing terrace and double mattresses under a canopy to one side.
The white wooden pool bar has grey metal seating under some parasols. In separate areas there is a further small rectangular pool for suites and a spacious Jacuzzi with a central palm tree.
The attractive white bar with has pink flowering vines is at the front of the property, overlooks the beach and is open to the public along with the traditional a la carte on the beach.
