“Amazing place!! Amazing Hotel!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2014

My husband and I stayed at Canaves Oia Hotel in a Junior Suite for a week in early September. It was one of the most beautiful places I've ever been and the service is incredible. I don't think I've ever been as relaxed as I was by the end of the week there. The rooms are very beautiful, just amazing!! The food delicious and the views are so breathtaking. Every staff member is so nice. Special thanks to Desi. I truly loved it there and would go back in a heartbeat.
Highly highly recommended!

Hello people , i just wanna say my experience at Canaves Oia in Santorini was just amazing.This hotel looks like a part of Heaven.Why i say this ? Because of the view you get from the balcony.Just outstanding , the water in the Sea is clear , and the management is great.Never had a problem in 7 days , and every employee of the hotel was nice and gentle to me without offering any kind of tip :) The serving at the restaurant was great , food is delicious and enough for everyone :) ..It s a great choice for a summer week even more .I m not married yet but that was like a little honeymoon :) . Will love to

Room Tip: Sea-view rooms are great !

I've always wanted to go to Greece - I've probably been planning the trip for 5 years or so but never seemed to make it. So as you can imagine, finding the perfect accommodations to make this trip live up to my exceedingly high expectations, was not an easy task. After combing through TripAdvisor I decided on Canavas Oia and I was not disappointed with my decision. The room, the staff, the scenery were all perfect. They catered to our every need without suffocating us - they just seemed to be there at the right time. Highly recommend this hotel to all those looking for a luxury stay in Oia.

My husband and I decided to take a well deserved overseas trip so that we could relax and unwind. I've personally always wanted to visit Greece, because I had heard the views were magnificent. We weren't sure where to stay, but wanted to relax in an atmosphere that made us feel like royalty. This is why we chose the Canaves Oia Hotel.

While on our trip, we got to enjoy breathtaking views while also enjoying the luxurious hotel and its many amenities. We chose to stay in a junior suite, which gave us a large living room area as well as a jacuzzi tub, which made for a truly relaxing experience. The room itself was spacious and made for the perfect place to unwind. We hardly wanted to leave our room to see the outside world!

At Canaves Oia Hotel, there is also a great pool with a pool bar. This made for exciting afternoons. We enjoy each others company while sipping on our favorite cocktails. The food was also delicious and every interaction with the staff was top notch - something that is really hard to find these days.

We also enjoyed the free parking - it was a big plus for us!

If you're looking for an unforgettable vacation experience, be sure to book your next stay here!

Room Tip: The junior suite is the perfect choice!

After extensive research we decided to stay at Canaves Oia Suites in Oia! We had a couple of friends that stayed there before and they raved about the property !! And it certainly lived up to our expectations!! Apart from the location and the quality of the hotel itself the staff was above and beyond!!! Everyone knew our last names, what coffee we like t have in the morning!! It gives a very warm feeling!! It makes you feel at home!! I only spent 4 days but next summer i am going for 10!!

My girlfriend and I stayed in a junior suite at Canaves Hotel the beginning of September. I must say we were very impressed with our room and the spectacular view of the caldera. The room was pretty spacious by European standards and had a cozy feel to it. The bed was comfortable and the room also included a very cozy couch to kick back and relax on. The bathroom, which was located directly behind our bedroom was also very spacious, it included a full size jacuzzi and a separate shower that is more than big enough for two people. The view from our room was stunning and we found ourselves spending most of the night sitting on our balcony with a bottle of wine and some snacks just soaking up the beautiful night sky enjoying the lights of Santorini. The included breakfast was not bad at all, we had it delivered to our balcony every morning. My only complaint would be that the hotel tries to up sell you on excursions and dinners that are way to expensive, other than that we had a great time and enjoyed our stay.

The room we had a spectacular view of the sea. We had a "private" pool (hot tub size) on the balcony which was a fabulous treat, although the water was not warm. The bathroom and sitting area were quite nice and the entire suite very clean. The bed was in an alcove and no window, so ventilation was not good.
We dined here for lunch and dinner and food was as good as any we had at any restaurant on Santorini, but a bit pricey. Staff were welcoming and helpful. Would definitely recommend it for a stay in Oia.

Room Tip: request one with a balcony.

Dear Taylor52,

Thank you for your nice words! It is always a pleasure hearing that our guests left with good memories from the island and of course our hotel.
We are really glad you enjoyed your Honeymoon Suite!

We need to mention that the majority our suites , like almost all cliff side hotels in Oia, are cave like and have only one or two windows. Being built on the edge of the cliff, our hotel's rooms used to be "Canaves" , natural caves were Santorinians were keeping wine stored in ideal temperature, aging all the way back to the 17th century. Those caves have their own, very advanced, ventilation system.

We cannot wait to have you back to Santorini!

Warm regards,

Thanassis Papetanas
