We had a lovely Junior Suite at the Boutique Hotel with a view of the caldera. We stayed at Canaves 30 years ago and always wanted to go back for another visit. John, the manager, along with all his staff, could not be more gracious. The hotel is a short walk to the pedestrian zone of Oia so that it is easy to walk into town for the sunset experience and dinner. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant one night and it was one of the best meals we had while island hopping for 4 weeks in Greece. Be aware, there are lots of stairs of irregular heights so not good for those with mobility issues.

Hotel's Favorite
Santorini was a short stop on our visit to Greece. I wish we had stayed here more nights! Definitely felt like we saved the best for last. Shout out to the hotel manager John for going out of his way to make the hotel a magical experience for guests. His entire staff is wonderful as well! Some highlights: -Amazing guest experience, they really go out of their way to make requests happen -Check-in process and welcome drink -Located a short 3-4 minute walk to the "main" parts of Oia, but far enough that you get peace & quiet -Incredible Caldera views -Clean spacious rooms, many with personal plunge pools -Thoughtful complimentary guest amenities (sandals, hats, masks, slippers, hand sanitizer) -Delicious food, some of the best food we had on the trip (esp at lunch & dinner) One random and very minuscule area for improvement: Although many of the breakfast items were great, some of the items that were supposed to be "sweet" were strangely salty (crepes, pancakes). Egg and yogurt dishes were fantastic! As were the breads. Here were some of the gestures that distinguished the hotel and ensured we will be back: -This hotel is part of the SLH collection which includes some wonderful benefits due to their partnership with Hyatt. Greek tourism is picking up and the hotel had appeared full before we arrived so we weren't expecting anything other than the room we booked. Much to our surprise, we were upgraded to a room with a small plunge pool at check-in. It's SOOO nice when hotels do what they can to improve your experience without being asked to. After too many times of being snubbed at Marriotts where I've "earned" upgrades but don't get them despite plentiful availability, this was a refreshing surprise. -The hotel never pushed us to eat at their restaurant which I think speaks for the confidence they have in their own food. In fact, they gave thoughtful recommendations (that lined up with the places I had found during my own research), in addition to briefly and casually highlighting their own restaurant. At luxury hotels we have stayed at in the past we definitely have felt pressured to eat at the hotel which tends to be very pricey but not always worth the cost. At Canaves the cost of the food can be on the higher side but the quality/taste matches the cost. -The restaurant went out of their way to accommodate my food allergy and didn't bat an eye if we decided to split an entree. -Kind of weird one, but I noticed they used strong vinegar based cleaning supplies some some of the cleaning, and I appreciated the green (but effective) approach. -Our flight out of Santorini was quite late and unfortunately the hotel was fully booked so they weren't able to accommodate late check-out (which we knew was a possibility). However, the hotel arranged for us to be able to use the facilities to freshen up before we left to the airport. It was an incredibly thoughtful gesture after a long day at the pool in the Santorini sun. All in all, we will be back! Definitely to this location, and maybe to check out one of their other 5 properties as well! Santorini is gorgeous and there is way more to do than I anticipated. Can't wait to return.

I am literally left speechless. It was heaven on earth. John, whom was the manager was so welcoming and helping and made us feel so special. The property alone was amazing with the more amazing views of the caldera. The food was the most delicious and fresh food I’ve ever had. The pool was so clean and beautiful! We had breakfast near it and the service was perfect. The rooms was so beautiful and what an experience staying in a CAVE!!! Don’t think twice… just book it! We had a jacuzzi outside of our room and it was so relaxing at night. The staff was so helpful as well and the property was so clean. I’ll be back!!

Anything I say about this place would not do it justice ,it was that good.. from amazing views of caldera to pristine rooms ,not to mention the most amazing staff I've come across, the place is as good as it gets. From the moment you arrive ,you are made to feel so special. We were greeted by Effi who was kind enough to give us a mini tour of the whole place along with a little history of the island. On entering the suite we were pleasantly surprised by the little personal things the staff had added, drinks,fruit platter, chocolates (it was our wedding anniversary ) along with a special congratulations note .we were lucky to enjoy a special evening with live singing n let's just say it was the most memorable night. Also try the food at their restaurant you won't be disappointed. The manager Mr. John n his team deserve a round of applause( I wish I could name everyone but I'm forgetting the names) but everyone of the staff was the best. So book this place n thank me later.

This property and its staff far surpassed any expectations I had prior to arriving on Santorini. I could find fault with absolutely nothing. The views from every spot on the property of the caldera and surrounding islands just takes your breath away. Every member of staff, from management, front desk, bellman, housekeeping, maintenance, and especially the pool/restaurant/bar team went above and beyond in their service towards the guests and nothing was ever a problem to do for any of them. I spent one week being spoiled and feeling liberated and free of any tension I arrived with; my only regret is not having spent more time at the property. It was truly difficult having to leave and return to my "reality" but I know now I will make many more return trips to this piece of heaven.

We can’t say enough about our stay at Canavas Oia and the service provided by John and his team. The attention to detail, cleanliness, location, aesthetic, food, cocktails, cigar list, views, and service cannot be matched on the island. 12/10.

I can't recommend this hotel high enough. The service was fantastic, the rooms and the history of the hotel made the experience one of a kind. Also, there was not one thing on the menu to eat or drink that wasn't a 5star experience. Anyone going to Greece should stay at this hotel!!

Idyllic. Perfectly located. Friendly with sincerity. Immaculate. Views to die for. Fantastic food. Faultless. The only 5 star hotel I’ve been to that truly lives up to its rating. Thanks for looking after us so well and I can’t wait to return in the future.

My wife and I came to Santorini as part of our honeymoon in early August. We arrived via ferry from Mykonos on a Monday and stayed at the Canaves until Wednesday. We were greeted from our taxi ride immediately upon arrival by their fantastic staff, drinks were served within our first half hour, and a bottle of wine waiting for us. Our room was the plunge pool suite that overlooked the caldera which was stunning. We had two rooms on either side that were close in proximity but were no bother whatsoever to privacy. The pool and poolside bar area were absolutely stunning with great room to suntan again overlooking the caldera. Breakfast was served daily in the same location and offered a great morning menu with fantastic pastries to start the day. The location is ideal for the downtown area of Oia within walking distance of the best restaurants and locations to view the stunning sunset. The cleanliness and layout of the room is perfect for even families with children. We cannot recommend this hotel enough and was worth every penny. The cherry on top was the 17th Century Wine Cave spa where we enjoyed an amazing couples massage by their staff in one of the most unique settings imaginable.
