Stayed here for 6 nights. The hotel is in beautiful part of Santornio. The view is incredible. Overall hotel was very good and staff very attentive and helpful. We had breakfast delivered to our room every day which was a bit hot or miss but really an overall fantastic experience.

My family of 4 stayed 4 nights at the Canaves Oia in July. We had a large suite which had 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a common living room area. We had our own private jacuzzi outside which overlooked the caldera. Simply gorgeous. The location was convenient to the restaurants and shops and a short walk to the breathtaking sunset... More

Wow, Wow, Wow! Canaves Oia is absolutely spectacular. Starting with the location high up on the cliffs overlooking the calderon of Santorini. The view is from the room was breathtaking! Our room was just above the pool area with our own individual spa tub/pool that was partially in our room and continued outside--very cool! Service from start to finish was... More

We stayed at this beautiful hotel for 4 nights and we are now making plans to stay there again in 2015. We arrived from Athens very early in the morning and was deposited on the top of the mountain by the taxi driver to what we believed to be the front entrance only to find out that, the entrance on...

The Canaves Oia hotel is a gorgeous hotel with amazing views of the Caldera. The hotel Suite room #1 that we were given for our family of four, was huge and very comfortable. Rooms were big and the views from the windows and open front door were magnificent. The pool area was beautiful and the staff by the pool were... More

We only stayed at Canaves Oia for two nights but next time it will be for longer. This is a stunning hotel just at the start of the entrance to the main street in Oia. Everything about this place is beautiful. From the welcome you receive from the reception (Barbara was so kind and helpful) to the service at breakfast... More

People often give 5 star reviews because they had a good time, but the 5 star review should be used ONLY when something goes above and beyond anything you expected. Folks, this is that place. I can't say enough...so I won't. The views are breathtaking. But they're breathtaking essentially all over Santorini, so what's so special about this place. The... More

My husband and I could not have had a more perfect experience anywhere but at Canaves Oia. From the moment we arrived, our heavy bags were whisked down the many steps effortlessly with a smile, Barbara greeted us and walked us to our room where a complimentary bottle of wine and fruit awaited. When we walked around the property, we... More
