My wife, daughter ( age 18) and I just returned from Santorini and stayed at the Canaves Hotel. Please note that there is a distance of about 100 meters between Canaves Hotal and Canaves Suites. It seems that they share personnel and ownership as staying at either allows privileges at the other facility. The view from our room was absolutely... More

Canaves lived up to expectations. Phenomenal hotel in an excellent location atop the cliffs in Oia. Spectacular views, suites, pools, and service. Sunset Oia tours are right across the street for catamaran cruises around the island. The hotel has two restaurants, and 1800 and Ambrosia's are a short walk away.

My wife and I recently met in Santorini, Greece, more specifically the town of Oia. We spent four glorious days at the Canaves Suites Hotel. We stayed in presidential suite 20, the highest room (the hotel is set into a hill). The room consisted of a beautiful living room, bedroom and large bathroom with our own large private terrace including... More

We spent 4 nights in Santorini in June and chose to stay in Oia as we heard it was a little quieter than Fira. From the moment we arrived until we sadly departed, we felt like we were in paradise. The Canaves Oia hotel is first rate, from the breathtaking views, beautiful rooms, and delectable breakfasts to the front desk,... More

Better than the photographs. Alex (Alexandros Chaidemenous) and his staff couldn't have been more welcoming, engaged or helpful. From room to restaurants to location (a few steps from the main street of Oia) Canaves Oia Hotel is a once in a lifetime experience for family or a quiet getaway. Could not have been more perfect!

The rooms, the view, the staff, the food!!!!!!!!! Awesome hotel! Great location. You don't need a car. Rent a scooter near the hotel to see the island. The staff will recommend some great restaurants, too. Hotel breakfast was substantial to get us through most of the day. It does cost more than most, but it's worth it!

We stayed here on our honeymoon and couldn't be more pleased. The views were spectacular and the staff was top notch! You must use their new spa facilities if you stay here. My husband and I got a couples massage and the table is set up in a cave on the side of a cliff with views of the caldera.... More

Our family of 6 began our Greek vacation here - where breathtaking vistas and personal attention rank off the chart. We stayed in the Grand and the Classic suites - full yummy breakfast always included. The entire staff, from the pool/bar/restaurant, to housekeeping and reception played a huge role in a wonderfully relaxing experience. Additionally, the location of this hotel... More

Our stay at Canaves Oia was outstanding. The location of the Hotel cannot be beat. You are close to the town of Oia, so it’s easy to walk into the village. The views from each room are fantastic, as are the accommodations. One small detail is in our room the shower did not have an enclosure (curtain or door) so... More

Breathtaking hotel, built into a cliff on the caldera. Amazing views everywhere, right in the center of Oia. Just minutes by foot to shopping, restaurants and the incredible sunsets from Oia Castle. Great restaurant near the pool. American breakfast was awesome!!! Staff is exceptional -- professional and kind. Greeted with a private tour and drinks. You can just get lost... More
