“Perfect honeymoon experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

This place is exactly as it is described, heaven on earth. The views are stunning from every part of the hotel. The infinity pool was awesome and the staff made were so polite and helpful making this a great honeymoon destination. We will never forget our lovely stay!

I'm not exactly sure what to say about this hotel other than what my title states...Heaven. We were here for 5 days, and did not have one bad experience. The service was great, and location so beautiful. Every picture you see of the Santorini view, you can basically see from this hotel. I agree with many posters, this is one of the best hotels in Santorini. We used the hotel shuttle to get us back and forth from the airport, which is essential, as the hotel is in Oia (imagine other end of the island). Upon arrival at check in, we received complimentary drinks. We were lead to our junior suite, which did not disappoint. It had a little balcony patio (which most rooms have) which was great as we could sit there and admire sunrise, and sunset. We dined at the hotel restaurant which was quite pleasant. The pool area was spectacular as the infinity pool merge perfectly with the caldera view. We had breakfast delivered everyday to our room, and served on our balcony patio. When we had our room made, the girl who helped us left like special gifts such as the words "love" made out of flower petals. Such a great specialized service. We also got to know a few of the service staff: Saki and Michael. Great customized service. I had high expectations for this hotel, and it definitely meet and exceeded our expectations. We will definitely be back as we fell in love with Santorini, and with the Katikies. Thank you so much for making Santorini so special for us.

this is one of the best hotels in santorini !! , you need to learn here how to speak very low ,and enjoy the sound of the natural paradise front of you !! , service is just the best ,food is first class.
make sure to ware black glasses ,and be careful with all the steps all around the hotel , can be a little dangerous if you have some drinks !! lol .

Room Tip: if you go out the hotel for diner , make sure you ask for prices of specials , or you can pay up to...

Oia by itself is just a wonderful place in Santorini/Greece. I spent just 2 nights during November/2012 at Katikies Hotel and enjoyed every moment. It is unique ! It is a boutique hotel full of charm. I got a Junior suite caldera view and also a lovely view to the pool. You can get your breakfast delivered at your room (Which I did) So, it is all nice to take it at your own private balcony looking the meeting of the gorgeous blue sea/sky and rocks right in front of you. It is a peaceful place ( at least the season I was there). The only inconvenience was that there is a jacuzzi, one level down the main pool, that was dirty and not working. After a long time waiting, someone came to clean (just leaves and not thoroughly) and did not put it to work. He just left the place without any explanation or solution. As I was leaving next day, I decided do not have any kind of annoyance and just left the Jacuzzi area, but it is something should not happen here. There is a restaurant at the hotel that you can have something to eat if you are too tired to go outside - where there is plenty of choices and more fun. Anyway, I should mention Katherine (I am not sure if it written correctly). She is a young and very kind waitress that gave her best to provide us a nice dinner at Katikies. I do recommend Katikies for its distinctive atmosphere and location - try to book pick up airport transfer in advance at Katikies as Oia is too far from the airport - we did that and do not regret. You certainly will have an enjoyable time at this place.

We couldn't have asked for a better hotel in gorgeous Santorini. While there is nothing overly special about the rooms per se (though completely comfortable), the overall location is fantastic, the breakfasts fabulous and the views spectacular. The only oddity was the staff telling us that the restaurant at which we had booked for dinner was not yet open which was not the case. We did also dine in the wine cellar which was very special.

There is no doubt this is one of the best hotels on Santorini. The views and service were excellent - and it was spotlessly clean. We watched the team everyday with their bundles of clean linen navigate "those steps" oh my goodness so many steps down and feels like even more on the way up! I would definitely not recommend to older clientele! We stayed for 10 nights in a honeymoon suite and I have to say that for the money I was a little disappointed. We were allocated the top suite right by the reception - which had great views out to the Caldera but because we were based at the top of the steps, when we were on our terrace I felt we were on show to everyone walking up to go out for the day / night. There were narrow billowing white drapes to provide some degree of privacy ,but it was not enough for me and I felt the terrace was not made to feel comfy or luxurious enough and the area where the jacuzzi was needed some tlc and better sunbeds. It basically needs to be made more of to compensate for the being at the top of the walkway. As we were there for such a long time we did ask to see the other honeymoon suites and to be honest there is only one which had the wow factor, but it had been pre reserved by someone who was a regular so we stayed put. They are definitely not all the same standard. Gripe over - the hotel is gorgeous, the staff were lovely - especially Caterina who looked after us at the pool bar/restaurant, the food was a very good qualit y, we tended to just have lunch and ventured out in the evening to various restaurants. Our favourite was Ambrosia which we returned to a couple of times, ask for the table on the top terrace looking out to sea. After hiring a car and driving around the island we were more then happy to be returning to Katikies and Oia. Overall very lovely and we had a very enjoyable holiday but there was a but!
