finally got to go to Greece for my 50th birthday and it was everything I always dreamed it would be! This hotel was beautiful and I will never forget the feeling of sitting on the balcony and looking out at that view! Someday I will return! One night we ate out by the pool at sunset, by candle light. We... More

Canaves is conveniently located at the entrance in the town of Oia with stunning views of caldera and sea. However it takes a long stroll to actually visit the town and restaurants and very far from the sunset viewing point at the castle of Oia. Undoubtedly the view is for 5 stars but the accommodation was very average, our suite... More

I've been going to Canaves for years and I highly recommend it for couples vacations. If you're looking for lovely, freshly made breakfast on your private balcony and then laying in the sun for hours by the pool, while serviced by the friendliest staff imaginable, this is the place for you. The beauty of the island and the exceptional food... More

To start off the vie from the room was great. It was a small hotel but everything about it was great. The spectacular service made me feel like the staff really cared about me, the pool is placed in a perfect spot. The hotel is right on the edge of the marble road but that was not a problem

Our destination wedding at the Canaves Oia Hotel was absolutely magical. My husband and I were skeptical as to what to expect having our wedding so far from home, but Thanassis made the entire process seamless. He took care of every detail to ensure that we had the wedding of our dreams. And we did. It was breathtaking!! If you're... More

Canaves Oia Hotel & Suites offers a wonderful getaway with a feast for the eyes and the other senses. My husband and I spent 3 nights here on our recent trip to Greece. We snuck it in at the end...

Each morning we woke up to a perfect view, then served breakfast via room service. The coffee was excellent, omelets, fruits and greek yogurt all fresh and delicious. The concierge is exceptional-- definitely 5... More

As a relatively frequent traveler to Santorini I was so pleasantly surprised to find accommodations and services that were one large step above all the others... The room was in the traditional Mediterranean motif with colorful accents...the staff was there to help and make sure everything met your expectations...the breakfast buffet included enough variety to assure your satisfaction...it was a...
