I have to say I was alittle skeptical of all the 5 star reviews of Ikies before I arrived. However, after staying 3 days at the Captain's room, I now understand why Ikies justly deserves its 5 star rating. The views of Oia and from the hotel were to die for! Santorini truely is one of the most beautiful places I've been to. Aside from the jaw dropping views, what sets Ikies apart is the service. Loella and friends made our stay very comfortable, provided great restaurants recommendations, booked them for you, and made sure you got the best seat with a magical caldera view. We woke up every morning to a scrumptuous breakfast and a wonderful caldera view. The jacuzzi temperature was always right. You even get a personal laptop for use during your stay, althought connection was somewhat slow. The staff would always ask us how we enjoyed our day and what we did. They seem genuinely to care about our vacation. Only minor drawback is that Ikies is located at the beginining of Oia so it takes a good 25 min to walk to the castle for a sunset view. But then again, most of the luxury resorts are located in the start of the walk.
