It's a nice hotel, good location, but the room is very small (like a cave) and the bathroom/toilet is super tiny. You can't even turn around comfortably in the shower room (no bathtub). There is no glass wall or curtain to separate the shower area from the toilet, so when you take a shower, it will get wet all over... More

When staying in Oia, of course you can expect spectacular views... But really, the integrity of your accommodation can be what separates an exceptional experience from mediocre! From the moment we walked through the gates of the newly renovated Aris Caves we were wowed. The grounds are very neat & clean and the classic whitewash with blue-trim painted villas adds... More

From pre-arrival to the day we left, Christina took great care of us. The transfer shuttle from the airport or seaport is critical to getting to and from the hotel at a very reasonable price. The driver and the porter were very helpful moving our luggage and getting us where we needed to be. We were absolutely moved by the... More

I too could not believe my eyes! This was the most beautiful place we have stayed. The position was fantastic with breathtaking views over the Caldera. There are lots of steps down to Aris Caves but so worth the effort. The cave room we had was called Fournos (little oven) it was so pretty, everything was painted white so very... More

I travel extensively internationally and found myself with an off week in southern Europe. Rather than return to Canada for a quick turnaround, I booked a room at Aris Caves and my wife flew in to join me for the week. We loved the location and our room. Christina and her staff were wonderful and made the experience very special... More

Could not believe my eyes! This place is beyond beautiful. Christina was the perfect host and introduced us to Greek yogurt with honey..so good. The view from the balcony is gorgeous and its only a short walk into town.

My wife and I had a wonderful 3 night stay at Aris Caves. We found it to be a perfect base to enjoy Santorini. Well located, nicely furnished and functional rooms, great host and of course a beautiful view.

My last minute, five-night stay at Aris Caves was nothing short of spectacular. Christina (owner) followed-up with a detailed e-mail and arranged for a driver to collect me at the airport. Upon arrival, she showed me my room (Folia-Nest), which was overlooking the ocean. It is a small studio with a bathroom and small kitchen, which a large balcony and... More

My husband and I recently visited Oia on Santorini Island, Greece. While the weather didn't exactly cooperate, we still had a marvelous 4 days in Oia. Part of the success of the trip can be directly attributed to our stay at Aris Caves, and the owner, Christina, and her personal handling of our arrangements, and care and advice before and... More
