Stop searching and book Atrina Traditional Houses. You won't be disappointed.
Property/Rooms: the rooms are built into the cliff (literally caves). We stayed in Athina's Suite and it was bright, spacious, the shower was great and the A/C worked extremely well. We were very comfortable. Our patio was very private (Athina's is at the end of the row of Suites). We had to pass through some of the other patios of the suites located closer to the stairs, so book Athina's if you can. It's not a big deal, but we enjoyed the privacy. The pool was great and we used it every day. It was very relaxing and we were usually the only ones in it. We almost always had our pick of sunbeds as well (many great ones to choose from!).
Service: we were given a Greek cell phone when we checked in so we could make and receive local calls (helpful with activity bookings) and call room service or reception 24/7. We used this to place our breakfast order each morning as well, which always arrived to our patio within 15 minutes. Breakfast was delicious and fresh and always served with a smile. Melanie, at reception, truly went above and beyond at every turn. I approached her daily with a list of questions (where is the best place to see the sunset, could she make us a reservation for dinner, etc.) and she was gracious and helpful. She booked us the best tables with the best views at the best restaurants. She even was there for our early 5:30am departure to make sure everything went as planned (and she arranged our breakfast to be delivered to our patio at 4:45am). Everyone who worked there seemed to truly love their job and want to make sure your stay was not just enjoyable, but perfect. And it was! Service in Greece was pretty exceptional across the board, but Atrina took it to a new level.
Location: there is a marble pedestrian walkway that leads down the main strip in Oia. Atrina is located just at the beginning of this, which in my mind made it perfect. It wasn't in the thick of the strip and therefore was a bit quieter and more private, but it was literally just steps to all the shops and restaurants. The views were incredible and from that location, you could watch the sun set over the city of Oia (which was my personal favorite sunset view).
There were so many extra special touches that made it really special - lanterns placed on your balcony each evening and removed before sunrise, free bottled water served at the pool, we got the rose petal treatment in our room for our honeymoon, etcl. I wouldn't look any further and would definitely stay at Atrina again. It was truly a perfect stay!
