“Fabulous views, staff and cuisine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

The breath taking views, especially of sunsets from the terrace where we enjoyed marvellous meals, breakfast and dinner, provided by the friendly staff. Rooms were pleasant and spacious, and with the pool a few steps away, and the bus stop to Oia a few metres down the road, you are well served. But a picture is worth a thousand words...

Room Tip: Overlooking the Mediterranean is a marvellous choice!

OK, you visit Santorini for the fantasy, to have that place looking out from the Cliffside, perhaps on your honeymoon. For your second stay when you can relax a little bit and might be looking for a better value this is the place to stay a mile up the road from the edge of Oia.

There are two hotels there and I stayed at the other one, but visited with our group and had dinner at Finikia's Place. I enjoyed the food there enough that I never made it down to Oia, they greeted us on our first day w/Moussaka (granted I was pretty hungry by the time we dropped our bags) and I had a good sized Bream one evening, the Greek salad was good and they took pride in their home-made tapenade, and marmalade for breakfast. My room (at the other hotel )was large, the bed too small for my 6' frame, the shower was much too small to move around in, but that's what you get sometimes. The pool was wonderful, 4-5 in the evening was not too hot even in September. Yeah, these places are quirky, you will have to walk to Oia on a narrow road, being passed by tour busses on the way to see the sunset - or you could just take the bus which stops right there. Then again, once you've done the Oia sunset, the second time you can just sit and relax on the deck and watch it at a different angle while not having to move, wine in hand. It worked for me but these places are not for people who expect everything to work a certain way.

Stayed here October 7-11. Perhaps the best hotel of my travels so far. Located a short walk from the high density and hustle of Oia on the north end of Santorini, overlooking the vineyards and the sea beyond. With a bus stop 2 doors away, you can be in the centre of Fira in 10 minutes, and from there you can go anywhere on the island. It was a truly relaxing setting after the days events.

All of the staff at the hotel and its restaurant were pleasant and very helpful. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. If/when I get back to Santorini, I will most likely stay here.

No one should suffer the terrible suffering we experienced: in terms of safety - the stairs are no guard rail and height Hmogd legal requirements. The danger is very real skating, especially given that you carry yourself! The suitcases. The swimming pool is no lifeguard. The shower room is only cold shower, no hot water, no matter what time, and despite the fact that in the kitchenette, there are no chairs to sit. The hotel owner which faces with the complaints Excused himself on the grounds that there was failure in the water and "h chairs on the porch, so hand them in and out as needed. At breakfast when served juice and asked for a glass of water instead, and the answer was:" The water has to pay under the provisions of a hotel. "At this point broke down and decided that we leave the hotel immediately, and save the remaining days annual holiday ours. owns the hotel offered to put us in another hotel, much more expensive than that, and is willing to bear the difference. a quick check on the internet has taught us that the price of the hotel offered us a cheap on sixity percent, than he suggested. seeing that we are going to leave, offers a more comfortable accessed. disappointed and angry we left the hotel.

Room Tip: Go to another hotel!

Location: on the contrary to some reviews, I think that this hotel is very well place. It is located just outside of Oia. It is at walking distance from Oia's center (10-15 minutes) which makes it very quiet. Moreover, the view from the hotel is very good: you can see the beautiful sunset of Santorini from the pool, your own terrace or the restaurant.

Design / rooms: the hotel is really beautiful. The rooms and the facilities are very lovely: all the rooms are traditional Santorni cave houses. Everything was very clean.
Breakfast: the breakfast is not a buffet. It is brought to your table and its composition changes everyday, which is great. We appreciated that you can have some extras to the breakfast already included in the price of the room if you wish, for cheap.

Staff: the staff was very friendly and professional, especially the two girls working and the restaurant.

We definitely recommend this hotel for people who want to have a quality time in Santorini

This is a beautiful hotel located just outside of Oia. The rooms and facilities are simple and gorgeous. The food and service is also top notch. What made my stay extra special were the lovely girls that work there. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Hotel was clean, simple and very very lovely in every aspect. If we ever go to Santorini again, we will be staying at the same hotel.
Location was a walk away from Oias centre but on a quiet spot where to relax. You could always find a chair next to the pool.
We loved the fact that the breakfast was not a buffet, but was brought to your table. Food in the restaurant was one of the best in our whole trip.
The staff was very friendly, especially the girls working in the restaurant.

All in all price/quality was spot on for us and we are extremely happy with the experience in the hotel.
