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

my husband and I stayed at the Canaves Oia Suites in October 2014 and I have to say it exceeded my every expectation. First of all luck was on our side as we were upgraded to the Presidential Suite. The Views are stunning and layout of the suite and the pool were spot on. Centrally located in the middle of... More

The hotel has fantastic views of the Calera! Very serene and a haven from all the crowds traipsing through Oia beyond. We stayed in the suites in a 'cave'. Yes it was a little damp but freshly painted. Free bottle of wine on arriving. No point using the mini bar as there's a shop nearby! Breakfast was good, beautifully presented.... More

The last time I was at Canaves was in 2010. I had such a great experience, I just had to come back! The hotel has made many new upgrades, including plunging and private pools in many of the suites, jacuzzis on verandas, spa treatments packages and a new gym. The staff was just as friendly and approachable as last time... More

This hotel (there are two, Canaves Oia Hotel AND Canaves Oia Suites) both have spectacular views. We stayed in the suites and the villa which are more luxurious than the hotel. You can not beat the view or the pool and plunge pools with each suite. The people at these properties are wonderful, especially the restaurant manager at the suites.... More

Stayed 6 nights in June in a newly renovated suite?? The suite was very tiny. The mattress and pillows were terrible, so old and soft we did not sleep, very poor quality considering the cost of this suite. The plunge pool was a joke, so tiny. The restaurant / pool manager was disgraceful, showed no personality, interaction or interest with... More

This place is a dream! When my now husband and I decided that we wanted to get married in Santorini, I quickly fell in love with Canaves. Thanassis, the assistant manager, took us under his wing and went above and beyond. He immediately understood my wedding vision, and through a shared pinterest board, he made it all happen! The wedding... More

I was treated to a break after a difficult start to the year and this place was just what I needed, It feels so peaceful and the views are amazing. The hotel is clean and bedrooms comfortable, the breakfasts are excellent and the staff so friendly. We loved being able to stroll into town and will return.

We came to Santorini after 5 very average days at Pomegranate hotel in Halkidiki. Needless to say, the contrast was stark! When we got to our rooms, we were completely astonished by the view - it was enchanting to say the least. The service was impeccable. The check-in was fast and efficient, and a welcome bottle of ice-cold white local... More
