El Greco is within walking distance of Santorini's capital, Thira, and a short drive from the village and beach in Kamari. There's lots to do for both adults and children at the hotel, with several pools, activities and places to relax both indoors and outdoors. In the hotel grounds there's an outdoor pool area with five main swimming pools as well as a separate, shallow children's pool and a sun terrace where you can relax with a drink from the pool bar. Indoors you'll find a gym, so you can keep up with your workouts while you're away. After an exercise session, you can treat yourself to a beauty or wellness treatment in the spa. You could book yourself in for a massage, or simply sit and unwind in the whirlpools. There's Wi-Fi throughout the hotel's public areas, and a 24-hour reception. Santorini is a favourite with couples for its sea views, local bars and restaurants, whitewashed towns and black-sand beaches that you can explore during the day or at night. Families with children can also find plenty to do, and there are walking trails and tourist attractions to enjoy in the warm weather.

You can explore the narrow streets, where you'll find lots of small shops for souvenirs, or you might like to sit and admire the distinctive multicoloured houses set into the hillside. The beach at Kamari is 8km from the hotel. It has volcanic black sand and you can spend long days in the sunshine here. The village of Kamari has plenty of traditional charm, as well as live music, restaurants and bars.

This was a hotel substitute from our Tour but did not dissapoint. At first it seemed a ways from town but only 5 minutes and you're at the edge of town with a good grocery store where you can pick up Beer and Wine for a night cap.
Of course no one goes to Santorini to say in their hotel room an we kept busy walking the narrow streets and even took the bus from the main terminal to Oia for the famous sunset ritual.
Our room was big and bright and there were nice pools if you wanted to chill out in the afternoon sun. The included Breakfast was great and the lounge was not overpriced.
We did tours on our own but you could book them through the hotel also.
I loved this hotel; it was in a great location- right on the caldera, and about a 10 minute walk to all the shopping, restaurants and views you can handle! The staff were friendly and helpful- the room was clean and a good size. Breakfast buffet was included and had a variety of hot and cold selections. They have 5 pools to choose from so that was nice. The Spa is gorgeous and I enjoyed my salt scrub and massage. I will definately stay here again on my next trip.!
We stayed at the El Greco Oct 27-29 and had a great time. Our room (21) was in the lowest part of the hotel so a bit of a walk back up the hill to the lobby but at this time of year the hotel was really quiet and the room was great. The pools all through the resort are lovely although a bit chilly in late October. The front desk staff were really helpful and gladly tried to help with our various questions. The hotel is located about 10 minutes walk from Fira so close enough but not in the middle of the madness. The breakfast was great (bacon daily!). One day, we watched the two bell boys deal with a large arriving group of guest and boy did they hustle (and sweat). All in all I would highly recommend!
