We had the most perfect post-lockdown getaway to celebrate my husband's birthday and our wedding anniversary at Canves Oia Boutique Hotel. Staying at this amazing, cosy property in Santorini ensured a magical, dreamy start to our two-week vacation in Greece. Everything was absolutely perfect - the breathtaking location, excellent service and facilities. We loved our wonderful anniversary dinner at the Infinity restaurant and generally all our wishes were accommodated and expectations exceeded. Thank you John and the team for such an unforgettable stay! We will definitely return and would highly recommend the hotel for a relaxing Santorini getaway. Liz & Maxim
The Care and Hospitality of the Manager as well as the entire staff was exceptional. The cleanness was perfect. Not a speck of dust to be found anywhere, in room or outdoor. The food was excellent as well. Perfect quality and taste.
The view from this hotel is breathtaking. The rooms are very nice. The location is one of a kind. But it is the staff that makes this a truly 5 Star hotel. The staff is truly superb. After meeting the manager John one can understand why. John seems to be every where at once. He is a delightful individual that only wants to serve your every need. This is the only place to stay if you are looking for a luxury hotel in this part of the world.
What a beautiful hotel! Impeccably managed by John, perhaps the best hotel manager I've ever met! Every one from the staff was kind, very polite and provided and excellent service. Very Recommended!!!
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.…
