Santorini has grown a lot since I was there nearly 30 years ago and can even seem crowded at times, but when we descended the steps to our room in this spectacular cliffside hotel, we were in our own paradise. Every wish is provided for. Our room had an outdoor patio, a kitchenette, a lower bedroom and a loft bedroom,... More

Absolutely spectacular. Santorini is the type of place where you can throw around superlatives and they usually fit. This is the most memorable hotel my wife and I have every stayed in and needless to say our favorite of the 16 nights we just spent in Europe. You get to meet the owner and she has excellent customer service and... More

From the minute I saw this property advertised on Trip Advisor, I knew that I wanted to stay there. And after connecting with the owner, Christina, my instinct was confirmed. Christina was absolutely wonderful in assisting with all facets of our trip planning (ground transportation from the airport, scheduling tours, making dinner reservations) and was a most gracious host. She... More

We came here for a week in September and what you see is definitely what you get. I'd done a lot of research before we settled for Aris Caves and what finally swayed us was price. Much cheaper than some of the competitors but absolutely brilliant quality and value for money. We were greeted on our arrival by our porter... More

What you see is what you get with Aris Caves. I did extensive research on Oia properties and I feel that you can't do much better than Aris Caves. I saw the other property that I had been shopping while on vacation in Santorini and I knew I made the right choice. Aris Caves is a quiet and intimate retreat.... More

We visited Santorini for the Greek Easter and decided to spend a day at Aris Caves to enjoy the view of the Caldera. The room was simply beautiful, with the traditional housing style of the Caldera inside a cave making it one of the coziest places I have ever stayed. The reception service was simply great. Thank you Christine for... More

The hotel was spectacular and Christina was so very accommodating and kind. Getting there is a little bit of work, but definitely worth it. Every view felt like bearing witness to spectacular creation.

It was important for us to have the caldera view during our stay in Santorini. I knew it was going to be at least double the cost, but I figured we may never come back here. I did a lot of research and Aris Caves seemed reasonably priced compared to similar hotels. I can't recall the last time a view... More

Aris caves is the perfect location with stunning views. We stayed here as a family with children but obviously due to the steepness of the location it's not suitable for very young kids. Christina was a wonderful hostess and nothing was too much trouble for her. The place was very clean and tidy with everything you possibly need from coffee... More

After spending four nights at Aris Caves, we completely understand the great reviews it receives. All the rooms are unique, in the traditional cave-style, but fully modern, spacious and extremely clean inside. Ours was enormous, with a huge bathroom including huge shower, and tub. Our room also had a cute kitchenette which was stocked with all the essentials (including homemade... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Literally, like an eagle's nest hanging in the cliff of the island, Aris Caves is located only a few minutes via stairs down from the center of the lovely village of Oia. Yet the placing of the houses is configured like an amphitheatre, tranquil and ideal to relax, to dream and to enjoy the breathtaking view across the Santorini Caldera, the volcano Nea Kameni and the deep blue Aegean Sea.Spread over 4 levels are 7 self-catering, fully equipped and separate studios, apartments and a suite, each with kitchenette, shower/toilet, air conditioning, internet and its own terrace. The large terrace in the center and the sun terrace next to the entrance of Aris Caves are open to all guests and offer probably some of the best views of Oia. Due to the cliff side location, stairs and low perimeter walls of the property, we recommend children to be at least 8 years of age and unfortunately cannot recommend our hotel to guests with mobiliy issues. ... more   less
