We loved the hotel. Right on Main Street in Oia. Our room had it's own hot tub with a fantastic view. Room was great, clean and comfortable. Each staff person was friendly and most called us by name. Our every need and request were handled immediately. Breakfast each day on our patio was wonderful. Hotel is expensive and has a lot of steps but is excellent.

So glad we stayed here, but it spoiled us for the rest of the vacation! This is the sort of hotel that just makes you say wow. You can tell a hotel is excellent by how many people want to spend their time there, and every day, two of the three pools had good crowds because this hotel is just so wonderful. The small touches (and even the big ones here) are done so well- turndown service actually does something. The breakfast is excellent - my wife says one of our meals might have been the best breakfast she’s ever had. The drinks are all very well made. The rooms are a good size and all seem to have fantastic views. And the location is great - right at the beginning of the pedestrian walkway but a short walk to the “katikies club”, a small building where you meet your tours and taxis. Highly recommend this hotel - it is beautiful, the service is fantastic…but be aware, that all comes with a hefty price tag! One tip- the layout can be confusing with lots of stairs! Bring your walking shoes.

We stayed here for four nights. Unfortunately we do not think this hotel was worth the $820 per night that we paid. Here is our fair and balanced review. We have stayed in three other hotels on Santorini, two of which are in a similar price bracket to Katikies. You can read my reviews on those hotels. Cons: 1. Rooms are basic and furnishings appear cheap. The black tiled flooring in the rooms and bathrooms is cosmetically not in keeping with the cave-like Santorini vibe that you would expect which other hotels offer in their rooms. The bed was uncomfortable. The pillows were very hard and gave me a sore neck. Nothing in the room felt “luxurious” or high end. The fire exit sign illuminated our room every night in bright green. There were no blackout blinds. We basically didn’t really sleep very well for four nights which was horrendous. 2. Our room did not feel private. One morning, sitting on my terrace, a member of the public who was not staying at the hotel appeared above my terrace to take pictures of the caldera. I noticed that members of the public would frequently enter the hotel property to take photos. Not only did this intrude on our privacy, it was also very concerning from a security perspective. Other hotels we have stayed at on the island enforce security and privacy on hotel property. Katikies did not. 3. The communal areas were not well maintained, despite what you see on Instagram (this hotel cares a lot about its social media image). There were scuff marks all over the stairs, stagnant puddles of water which were never mopped up, a leaking water cooler in the restaurant which left a huge puddle. The attention to detail was absent. In other hotels we have stayed at on the island, you would regularly see maintenance staff with buckets of white paint, and cleaning, mopping, brushing and so on. Not so here. 4. The staff were not good. The waiters in the restaurant made you feel like they were doing you a favour. One lady was very good; she was quickly, friendly and helpful. But many of the others had an attitude about them which was not like other staff at other hotels. Here’s an example. On one occasion, we went to the pool and put up an umbrella. A man came over to tell us he had just put the umbrella down but we could put it up again. I couldn’t care less about the backstory to the umbrella. Why are you telling me? He clearly was irritated by our presence and by us putting up the umbrella (note: it was not windy, so his objection was solely on the grounds of his being annoyed, nothing else). This type of arrogant attitude pervaded many of the staff with the exception of housekeeping who were very pleasant. There were many such incidents. I don’t expect to be spoken to in this way. 5. The food was disappointing. Breakfast was okay, but it was a rushed experience. I was literally putting the last forkful of food in my mouth when my plate was whisked away by a waitress. The gluten free options, aside from some dry bread, were non-existent. In this day and age, this isn’t acceptable. Other hotels on the island manage to provide an abundance of gluten free options. Katikies did not. 6. The manager, a gentleman, while quick to rectify our initial disappointment with our room and move us elsewhere - I’d love to see what our pre-upgraded room was going to be (more on this below) - didn’t seem overly fussed about any of the above. If he had been, none of the above would have existed. He sets the tone for the staff. Whilst I don’t wish to be personal, he came across as a bit insincere, and almost annoyed that we had told him the room he initially upgraded us to was a disappointment (note, we think the hotel “upgrades” everyone, possibly to secure favourable feedback; I note from other reviews how many people get “upgraded” which must be impossible to do if the hotel is always full…?) Pros: 1. Location in Oia was good for staying in Oia. We spoke to our friend who owns a restaurant on Santorini. She told us that Katikies is owned by a corporate group, that unlike other hotels there is no “family” involvement, and that other guests she has met have had similar feedback to us. I have noticed that this hotel is pushed heavily by influencers and other social media accounts with large followings, which is why I felt compelled to write this very honest and candid review. I’m sorry that our stay was not better, but the above is fixable with some changes, starting with management. I give two stars for the housekeeping staff and the hotel’s wine which was nice.

The attention to detail, the personal service, the breathtaking views & outstanding meals exceeded my expectations. Evdokia, the front desk manager made our arrangements for unparalleled dinners and the most memorable sunset cruise on the hotel's 63' "Frog Riva" yacht, complete with dinner and drinks. Menos in the hotel spa is not to be missed, his knowledge, techniques & genuine care should be experienced by all. The best massage ever. I will definitely be back.

Katikies is a amazing hotel with mesmerizing views. The hotel is in one of the best spots on the island. The hotel deserves the accolades it has earned. Elegant Beautiful and Upscale. We had made a minor mistake in our reservation but manager himself helped us and accommodated us. He and staff help make a very memorable stay for us with a experience that will stay with us for life. Highly recommend it.

This is the best hotel in all of Santorini. The service was unbelievable throughout our stay. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful from the minute we arrived. The concierge was also very helpful with booking an ATV and confirming our dinner reservations. Our room (room 4) was very private and clean, and it even had a private balcony and jacuzzi that we used a bunch throughout our stay. The complimentary breakfast was unforgettable, with a vast list of options to pick from. Make sure to order the Freddo Cappuccino every morning (it's not on the menu). Katikies had the best Freddo's compared to all the different places we tried during our trip around Greece. Finally, the view from anywhere throughout the hotel was heavenly, especially from the stairs and the main hotel pool. I will never forget my time at Katikies, and we will definitely be back again in the near future.

Great location in Oia. Hotel is exceptional and the staff is very polite! Each room is a suite and has amazing views of the caldera. Eating breakfast by the area overlooking the caldera was the highlight! The best hotel in Santorini! If you want to experience the unique views its a must!

We have stayed at some of the nicest hotels in the world and I have to say, Katikies in Santorini was one of the top 5 best. The staff was extremely pleasant and accommodating, the food was phenomenal, we never ate anywhere else because it was so delicious, we had the private boat for the afternoon and worth every cent, and the hotel room was awesome. I have and will continue to recommend this hotel to everyone, without a doubt, you will not be disappointed.

We stayed for the second time and again the impressions were excellent. Luxury, professionalism and care for the visitor to an absolute degree, you relax with this view and forget. What we tried in the restaurants and the bar (snack & cocktails) was also excellent. It's not cheap by any means but it's one of those situations where you don't regret it and it's worth spoiling yourself
