“Canaves Oia: an excellent hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

We spent a lovely two days at this hotel. We had booked for a junior suite but we were upgraded to the honeymoon suite at no extra charge. This was a perfect room with an outdoor jacuzzi and stunning view of the caldera.

The breakfast buffet was very tasty and well presented.

Oia is a beautiful greek picture-postcard village. We loved its sunsets.

We would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a high-quality and relaxing holiday.

Amazing property on the cliff of the unique caldera. With an extraordinary view. The staff was amazing especially Panos(i hope i spell it right) in the front desk. He was very helpful and he organized for us the best vacations. Very sad that we left but we will definitely come back next summer.

Stayed here for part of our honeymoon and were upgraded to the honeymoon suite. Honestly the best hotel room we have ever stayed in, with a private pool leading straight out from the bathroom window! Every part of the suite had postcard like views, the bed was amazingly comfortable and the hotel's service was excellent.
The only small negative was the breakfast buffet, which was not quite up to the standard of a five star hotel. Everything else was absolutely amazing. Would definitely recommend

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left the hospitality and service we received from the staff at Canaves was 5 Star! They attended to each guest as if you were the only ones there! The view from our room and basically anywhere in the hotel was breathtaking! Canaves is a must stay and will be our hotel of choice for future visits.

Where to start...?? My wife and I stayed for 4 nights for our honeymoon. Service was by far the best service that I have ever had in a hotel. Room was super clean, cave style (typical in Santorini), outdoor jacuzzi, view of Aegean Sea. We were not in the Suite section of this hotel. Pool and service by the pool was 1st class. Incredible views. Bfast and lunch were incredible, great food. Recommendations for excursions and restaurants were spot on, this place has everything you are looking for for a 1st class experience. We did not want to leave this property and may have ruined every hotel experience we will have going forward. :) Stay here.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room #15. Not part of the 'Suites', but felt like a suite to us. Pictures att...

My wife and I recently returned from spending our 10th anniversary in Greece which included 3 days at Canaves Oia Suites. The service from all members of the staff was attentive, friendly, and warm. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite that gave us a phenomenal view of the bay that we could wake up to every morning (my only minor gripe is that the jacuzzi tub on the deck was not heated). The location in Oia at the end of the promenade was fantastic and allowed us to explore the shops and restaurants during non-peak tourist hours. We travel quite a bit and having discerning tastes and the Canaves Oia Suites more than met expectations.

We stayed at Canaves for four nights. The room was huge and walking out on the balcony provided stunning views that amazed no matter how many times you saw it. The Canaves had a great pool and the breakfast buffet made lunch unnecessary. The shower in our room was a little strange in that it had no door and tended to get water on the floor, but everything else was great. The staff gave great advice on excursions and their recommended boat tour was truly worth it. From our perspective, Oia is the best part of the island to stay, and the hotel is at the start of the pedestrian walkway in Oia so it is in a great location. Oia was the most picturesque part of the island and not nearly as chaotic as Fira. Canaves is situated in a great part of Oia. I would highly recommend this hotel.
