The location of this hotel has got to be its major selling point! The famous windmill that you see on virtually every picture of Santorini is part of the hotel! Whilst everyone else in Oia scrambles for a view of the sunset every evening, guest at this hotel have their own private viewing area, as every room here has the... More

My husband and I stayed here and though it was slightly expensive to book a room with a view, it was well worth it. We got to sit on our private balcony each night and enjoy the sunset with drinks and munchies. The owner and staff are fabulous and super-duper helpful. The owner helped us book a private tour with... More

Talk about a magnificently built place, with a spectacular view of the sunset and very nice and friendly staff!!! Really worth the stay. Rooms are comfortable and very "special" (bed was very cozily "tucked" in the cave), amenities and breakfast are decent. Bar could have a bit more of a variety but still quite OK. The only minus for me... More

My wife and I stopped here for our honeymoon and were supremely impressed. There were other villas in the area that were thousands of dollars per night. We paid a fraction of that. The hotel is in the prime location in Oia and the balconies on the rooms are amazing. There is a bar next door that people line up... More

We had a lovely stay at golden sunset villas. The owners were absolutely lovely!! Unfortunately as the villas are caves they're very dark and moldy so we did get a bit sick with a chest infection. It's my understanding that the owners are slowly renovating, they don't in anyway neglect the rooms - it's just that with the way the... More

I think this could be the best hotel in Oia and may be my most favorite hotel ever. If you want to watch the sunset from the comfort of your own private seating area, this is the place. Beyond the hotel gate, people mass and stand to watch the sun go down. We sipped wine and eat cheese in comfort... More

I'm in love with this hotel, the rooms are cosy, warm and you'd feel like at home. Because I had a 27 hour flight I was really jet lagged so I took a nap and woke up to see the sunset, you have to know that the rooms are not sound proof and a few hours before the sunset the... More

This simply has to be the best hotel in Oia and the name said it all "golden Sunset" the best spot on the entire island to view sunset. The windmill just on top of my room in every postcard of santorini. Stayed in Cave room 2 and we loved it so much of the spacious, clean, comfortable and private balcony... More

simply put, this has to be the best hotel in Santorini (Oia). Not only because of the best spot on the entire island to view the famous Santorini sunset, not only because we stayed in THE windmill you see in every single postcard from Santorini. But Spiridoula and her husband were the absolute nicest, most helpful, and friendly hosts I... More

Stayed in Cave room 1 & we loved it! Big & spacious, very clean, comfortable & a huge private balcony all to our own! The views of the caldera & blue Aegean Sea are phenomenal, from our balcony, or even from kitchen window & bathroom window. Sunset is of course gorgeous & seems like everyone in Santorini are all lined... More
