OK so it's probably pretty obvious by now that this place has a great view which you can see through many pictures! When we first arrived it definitely was not what we expected! We had booked what we though was a triple room and when we arrived there was a single bed and a double bed. The owner (who is... More

We arrived early in the morning and were greeted warmly by Pepitza who let us into her house as our apartment was still occupied. We had breakfast with her and she let us sleep a while on her couch while the room was prepared. We spent 5 wonderful days and nights in Oia and enjoyed every minute. Tips on beaches,... More

Lava Oia is situated right in the foot steps of the main Oia market. Its just a couple of minutes walk. I stayed in the standard studio with my wife and son. It’s a very basic studio apartment with all essential facilities. There was a small patio with a chair and couch right outside the room which with a stupendous... More

Got there in the morning and took a van to the hotel, which we pre booked with the manager. In Santorini you often need to pay for transportation to and fro airport or port, which we got for free on other islands, but again, this is Santorini we are talking about, one of the prettiest destination in the Cyclades.

Our two families, 7 people altogether, stayed in the traditional cave house studio and the one bedroom apartment. Both accommodations are charming and traditional, although the cave house is truly extra-special. The views from the balconies are breathtaking, and we loved enjoying lazy breakfasts gazing at the cliffs and sea of the caldera. We bought fruit, yogurt, pastries, beverages at... More

I booked Lava Oia for one night due to a change in travel arrangements. We had already stayed in Oia for a week somewhere else. I booked via a booking site and the hotel was listed as having air conditioning and a 24 hour reception. Our room did not have air conditioning, the very small terrace was tiny, the rooms... More

We stayed 3 nights in this small but extremely charming and cute cave house. The owner is a very nice and welcoming lady who makes sure her guests feel comfortable. She is also very helpful with any requests. The view from the rooms is absolutely STUNNING. And the place is 3 minutes walking distance from the pedestrian pathway with all... More

The owner of this small apartment hotel is an exceptional woman. The service she gives is super! We stayed in the biggest apartment. Beautiful mix between old and new. Spacious bedroom and living room. Beautiful and clean bathroom. A small kitchen with everything you need. And the view out at the sea (south facing) is stunning. If you want to... More

After a busy week of travel and a missed flight, we arrived at Lava Oia at 7:30 in the morning, exhausted and hungry. Pepita greeted us, helped us get settled and brought us a lovely breakfast of fruit, yoghurt, croissants and bread, still warm from the bakery. We sat on the porch, taking in the view and the quiet. Amazing.... More
