We stayed at Finikia's Place for four nights in early October 2012. Let me start with the pros.
1. Stunning property. Stunning view. Very tastefully done rooms. We were given one right in front of the pool.
2. Restaurant. The food and service was decent. The menu has been given some thought and does not comprise the regular Greek fare.
3. Location. Good proximity to Oia. About ten minutes walk. We had rented a car so did not affect us anyway but even for those who don't, the hotel is close to Oia without being in the middle of the bustle.
Now the Cons.
1. Service was non existent. Nobody to help us with the luggage when we arrived and when we left. Nobody at the reception! Throughout our stay, we came across not a soul at the reception at any point in time. The waitress at the restaurant would double up as receptionist when queried but she was terribly ill equipped to do so. In other words, this is a do it yourself accommodation.
2. The room though tastefully decorated always gave one a feeling of lack of hygiene. This culminated into quite a situation when we faced bed bugs (shudder!) which led to a few sleepless nights and was quite a dampener. As always, nobody at the reception to consult for a change of room.
3. Breakfast was horrible (personally). A croissant, one slice of cheese, one slice of ham, a glass of orange juice, coffee, not fresh breads and the same preserve everyday. You could call it a typical European breakfast but it doesn't work for me.
All in all, could have been a great stay spoiled by the lack of service and help not to mention the bed bugs. Personally, would not stay here again.
