We just returned from our trip to Greece and our stay in Oia was one of the favorites. I have been to Santorini 5 times and have stayed all over the island. The hotel has a perfect location overlooking Ammoudi harbor, perfect spot for the famous sunsets, and beautiful surroundings.
The cave rooms are a perfect representation of true traditional houses in Santorini (I have stayed in many of this style). Though the hotel strives to give you the authentic 'traditional' feel, there are a few upgrades I feel should be made when you consider the nightly expensive cost for the hotel. The mattresses and pillows are very hard, and the pillows lumpy with the imprint of other people's heads in the pillow. The shower head was cracked and spraying everywhere soaking anything in the bathroom. Also the lounge chairs by the pool are old and pretty uncomfortable.
Other than those slight complaints the rest of the hotel stay was perfect. Definitely where you want to stay if you want a quiet - not to be bothered, romantic stay. The staff was very helpful and kind. Breakfast was decent, but you're truly paying for that perfect view.
