Dear Jo900, Indeed, we are a paradise in the middle of the Cycladic Islands and our distinct location of being close to the center area does bring its advantages too which you had the opportunity to experience the unspoiled part of Santorini and its magical sunsets. Once again thank you very much for recommending us and we look forward to having another opportunity to welcome you here at our blissful Canaves Oia Epitome soon! Warm regards, Canaves Oia Team

We enjoyed this hotel- beautiful ambiance and very helpful staff. Largest rooms we could find in the area. Not directly on the caldera, but the hotels directly on the caldera are a little more difficult to get to and require lots of steps and climbing and all seem smaller.

Dear Michele, Kindly note that most of the hotels on the Caldera(cliffside) in oia accept credit cards. Also the property is located within walking distance from Oia's center, however we do provide free shuttle in order to maximise your comfort. Best regards, Canaves Oia Team

I believe that our villa pool was salt. We saw a maintenance man treating it, and it appeared to be a salt treatment. I'm not sure about the main pool.

We are brining our family in June - I concerned about the hotel and the fact that it isn’t ready.
If it’s mid-June or later then it will most probably be complete. You could always phone them to confirm. They were working from early morning until very late to get it finished. I hope you have a fabulous holiday. Be sure to try the fish restaurants in Ammoudi Bay, just down the hill from the hotel.
