My new wife and I have just returned from a glorious 10 days at the Katikies.
From the moment we arrived, we were in total awe at the stunning view of the caldera from the hotel's cliff side location. The hotel is simply beautiful, with all 27 rooms built into the cliff, each with it's own private terrace for breakfast, and glorious views of the volcano and islands of the beautiful, blue caldera. I don't think we will ever forget the view.
Service and food in the hotel is top notch. Lunch and drinks are not cheap, but not silly money. We didn't try the gourmet restaurant, I am not sure it would have justified €33 for a starter!!
Our only gripe with the hotel is that the rooms are not quite up to scratch for the price. The bathroom in our Superior Suite was a little tired, with the tiling on both wall and floor in need of replacement. We also had problems with the shower in that, mid stream, the water would simply stop leaving you standing there covered in soap! Must be due to the lack of water pressure if someone else is showering at the same time!!
The hotel has 3 small pools, 2 of which are infinity pools. The area around the main pool is quite small, and can get crowded, but the view from here more than makes up for it. We spent most of our time in the hotel on the sundeck, which is a large private, quiet area of 7 double sunbeds. Sheer bliss!!
The town of Oia itself is also beautiful. Lots of cafes, restaurants and shops to enjoy along the pedestrian path that skirts along the edge of the cliffs. Katikies is ideally located at the edge of the town next to the start of the path.
Overall, a stunning holiday in a beautiful location. A special mention for Vassilias (poss not correct spelling - sorry!), the manager, who is an excellent hostess.
