We had a fantastic 2 wekks at the Formithea. The owner Maria is brilliant, she dosn't speak a word of English oh apart from no problem (her favorite English saying) but you seem to be able to make yourself understood and with a little arm waving she always seems to put her point accross. Our room was on the second floor overlooking the pool and mountain, lovely and light but by about midday very very hot. This wasn't a problem because if we weren't in the pool we were in Kamari, Thira or Oia. Formitha was well placed about 2-4 minutes walk to the centre of Kamari and the many tavernas. Have booked the Formithea for the same time this year but this year we booked the hotel with Christina, Marias Daughter-in-Law and the flights seperatly.

The Fomithea Hotel was well situated within the resort of Kamari, about a 5 minute walk to what we named as Restaurant Alley starting with the No Name Restaurant and 30 seconds further to the beach.It had a decent sized pool with a pool bar where they could prepare toast for you! Drinks and cocktails were cheap, approx 4 to 5 euros for a cocktail.The Fomithea was kept very clean.As it was the end of the season, standards could have slipped but the staff were pleasant and friendly to everyone.Our room was quite large but a triangle shape with no window only a patio door for any light, we called room 115, the Bunker, it wasn't underground but might as well have been because of the lack of light.The bathroom was at the point of the triangle, everytime you had a shower, you would flood the bathroom.The damp, rather manky shower curtain didn't do much to stop water going everywhere but this is quite typical for a Greek island so wasn't expecting much more.Cooking facilities weren't up to much, a few cooking rings and a few pots and pans and utensils.Again, not a problem, it's cheap enough to eat out.We could have air con at an extra 6 euros a day, you could have a continental breakfast for 3 euros a day and you could rent a tv for 10 euros a week if you had one in your room.I did ask for a room with a double bed which we got and a pool or sea view which technically speaking I did have, if I opened the front door.There didn't seem to be much entertainment laid on, but I gave it a 3 due to the entertainment value of some people around the pool area! There wasn't anything wrong as such with the hotel.Kosmar described it as 2 star plus which I would agree with.It's typical Greek studio accomodation but I think if we went back to Santorini we would go 3 star or above.It was a cheap package

We were really lucky with our room. We were on the 2nd floor and our balcony looked out over both the pool and also Mesa Vouno, the mountain separating Perissa from Kamari.

Maria, the owner, who spoke in Greek was always understood, and she was lovely. Christina is her daughter, also lovely, and brilliant at English. George ran the pool bar and Mikey worked in the shop, alongside Christina. All lovely people.

The Fomithea Studios are in a really good spot, close to the lovely black beach, traditional Greek Tavernas, bars and restaurants.

We would definitely go back to the Fomithea.
