Ikies - Traditional Houses
Ranked #6 of 56 Hotels in Oia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 31, 2006

My wife and I decided to go to Greece for our honeymoon, and couldn't decide what hotel to stay at. We looked and looked and finally she came across Ikies and absoultely loved it. She was right. From the first moment that we arrived at the airport to the ride back to the airport everything was fantastic. We went in the slow season, but would definitely recommend going there then. The food service was excellent, all you had to do is make a request of time you would like your breakfast and what you wanted for breakfast and they would have it on your patio waiting for you every morning. The concierge service was excellent as well. We requested dinner reservations, flight reservations, boating excursions and even taxis the day before we wanted them and everything was taken care of. We never had to worry about that. If you don't want to take a taxi everywhere and want to drive they even have a deal with a rental car company and they will arrange for you to have a rental car. The concierge staff was friendly and informative. They would recommend things that are good and be honest on the things that are not so good. They recommended Captain Ted's adventure and it was the best time we have ever had. I will be honest with you that alot of the hotels look the same and have the same kind of feel, especially in Oia, but the friendly service and prompt response to things that you request set Ikies far above the other hotels in Oia. I would recommend going to this place anytime of year. This is a wonderful place to visit.

I can't really say anything that hasn't been said by the review immediately preceeding mine...other than I agree entirely.

Oia is beautiful and unless you are looking to be right in the middle of a busy (read, slightly dirty and rundown), small city, I wouldn't recommend Fira. As many guide books suggest, go to Fira for some action, stay in Oia. It doesn't take long to figure out how to navigate Santorini, so exploring the entire island is possible from any of the towns you may choose to stay.

Most of the hotels in Oia have nice views, so I imagine it is service and cleanlyness that really matter when choosing one. The staff at Ikies was super friendly, accomodating and ready to help you do anything it is that you wanted to accomplish. Which is probably sit on your balcony and take in the fact that you picked the perfect spot to spend your holiday.

We stayed in the Antiquarian room. Just 2 of us in a 2 bedroom room, so for us it was quite large. As is the balcony, which while not entirely secluded, was still very private as there aren't that many guests bustling around anyway.

We, like many, moved from Santorini on to Mykonos and kept wishing we were back at Ikies for the rest of our honeymoon.

We had a fantasic stay at Ikies in September, staying in the House of the Captain. Ikies was the highlight of our trip to Santorini. Our suite couldn't have been more luxurious and beautiful. As stunning as the photographs are of this place, pictures can not do it justice. Ikies is just stunning. We were pampered and spoiled the whole time, and had a very difficult time adjusting to our next hotel! We loved the wonderful breakfasts, our very private hot tub, and our balcony, which was perfectly designed to let us imagine we were the only people there. And the view!!! Sunsets over the caldera were a magical, spectacular experience. We LOVED Ikies!

We have just returned from a wonderful week staying in the House of the Winemaker. From our first day we were made to feel very welcome and the memory of watching the sun go down over Oia sipping a cocktail will stay with us for a long time. Don't plan to do a lot - you will just want to sit enjoying the view, soaking in the hot tub and if you are felling very energetic climbing the steps to the pool.
