The arrival process at reception was smooth and spotless. At first I was offered a room which I had reserved. As a Small and Luxury Hotels member, I requested for room upgrade ( it depended on room availability.) The lady at the reception asked me if I would like to take a look at the first room. It was nice...

two nights in paradise! April i believe is ideal for Oia as it gets really really crowded and busy during the summer months! we were lucky enough to have great weather and enjoy our private little jacuzzi . Staff were great polite with a smile. Quite informed about Oia. Would definitely go back again!

We stayed at Canaves in April to get married and honeymoon. Our trip started rocky with airline issues. We got to the hotel a day and a half late. The hotel was spectacular. They were able to change our wedding date to the next day with no problem. Thanasis who coordinated our wedding was kind and understanding. He kept us...

Hands down the best views, service and location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Ideal for honeymoon and mother daughter bonding time. Definitely coming back here soon! Tip: Do check the weather forecast before you get here though.

Beautiful hotel with great unimpeded view of the caldera and close to but out of crowds of Oia. Small private spa on balcony made for great night view of the lights of Oia. Staff very attentive and helpful. Restaurant quaint with great views. Alot of steps down cliffside--73 each direction from room to street level. Not for folks with mobility...

We stayed four nights in a ‘Classic Suite’ in the Canaves Oia Hotel. This accommodation venue is in several parts – the Canaves Oia Hotel and the Canaves Oia Suites as well as villas etc. The Canaves Oia Hotel appears a smaller and more ‘boutique’ hotel which was very luxurious and with stunning views. We found the hotel less crowded...

Of the 5 hotels I saw or stayed at in Oia this was my favorite and the most suited to my tastes. I read every review on the Santorini Dave hotel website and he said that Katikies (where we stayed for most of our time in Oia) was 5 star and trendy luxury, while Canaves was 5 star and low-key...

Each section has its own pool, pool bar, sun deck and reception and of course the same impeccable service.Enjoy breakfast on your balcony as you soak up the amazing vista. Afterwards, go into Oia and visit the Venetian castle and wander through the steep, narrow streets packed with small boutiques. ... more   less
