If you haven’t actually travelled with a 10-month old, you don’t really know how it is, but picking a good family hotel like Kastelli Resort in Kamari always makes things easier

Being a parent is probably one of the most difficult things in the world and if you combine it with travelling, that has its own hurdles even without kids, you get an interesting mixture, to say the least. The best family hotels in Santorini are scattered throughout the island, but I have tried to categorize them per kids’ age group to give some additional help to your research.

BEST FAMILY HOTEL IN SANTORINI: Kastelli Resort

BUT ALSO CHECK:

In my honest opinion, if you are looking to visit Santorini as a family with kids (of any age), you should stay as close as possible to the beach (Perissa and Kamari are the best beaches on the island). BUT, it’s good to know that you won’t have the famous views at your doorstep if you stay close to a beach in Santorini.

Even though I really love Santorini and Mykonos, it’s only fair to say that these two Greek islands are not the best nor that they offer the same comfort for families. They don’t have the same amount and quality of all-inclusive family resorts you can find on other greek islands but that doesn’t mean you are not going to have a great time with your family there. Both islands have fantastic beaches (though Mykonos beaches are much better and sandier than Santorini beaches) and this by itself can make a fantastic holiday because a sandy beach is a kid’s heaven!

⚠️ But I want to make this clear:

You ARE NOT going to find hotels, resorts and mega all-inclusive complexes with kid’s clubs and water slides in Santorini. In fact, you can only find these in Crete, in Rhodes, in Corfu and in Kos islands. The family hotels in Santorini are mostly small family-run businesses with relatively small pools.

Booking.com is the website with the most available rooms and Private Villas in Athens, Santorini , Mykonos & Crete (more than Airbnb!)

where to stay in santorini
I really believe you should stay as close as possible by the beach if you are visiting Santorini with kids but you won’t have the famous caldera and volcano views

CONCLUSION

It’s safe to say that you will have an amazing holiday in any of the above family hotels in Santorini. I honestly believe that staying by the beach in Santorini if you are visiting with kids is the best thing to do. If you are bringing a stroller (buggy or pram) than it would be good to know that places such as Perivolos and Kamari are much more friendly. In theory, you can bring the stroller in Fira, Firostefani, Imerovigli and Oia but it won’t be hassle free as there might be steps and funny surfaces. Been there, done that! If you are visiting the island with teenager kids then probably staying on the more expensive side of the island with the caldera views might actually be better as it has more instagrammable views and generally is more vibrant and closer to the “action”.
