“Heaven on Earth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

We really enjoyed our stay at the Canaves Oia Suites during our trip to Greece! Though Santorini was the last stop for the trip, it would not be a lie to say that the hotel made this stop the best part of the holiday. Oia is about 20 minutes away from the airport by taxi, and this hotel has a breathtaking view of the town and the coast. Upon arrival, we quickly learnt that the staff members are very helpful and informative. The rooms were very spacious and well put together, complete with an information booklet/packet for guests. This hotel has a free wifi-internet service that is really fast, which was a pleasant surprise. I truly felt like I was staying in a palace, and highly recommend anyone going to Santorini to stay here! Thank you Canaves Oia for the wonderful memories!

Brilliant suites located in a corner of Oia, just a three minute walk from the Oia town centre, this hotel is an absolute gem. The rooms were pristine and top class - we were stunned the minute we walked in. Staff service was excellent and everyone was really helpful and friendly. We managed to get a lot of good recommendations on where to go and what to do around Oia, and all of our travel arrangements from the hotel to our various destinations were handled by the concierge. Definitely one of the highlights of our week long trip to Greece. Pricing is also reasonable and definitely bang for your buck. Highly recommended.

We travelled to Oia in the first week of May.The weather was lovely through the day but cold at night,we needed coats. The hotel Canaves mini bus picked us up at the airport and brought us to the hotel where everything was waiting for us. They showed us to our beautiful cave which we adored. The description is a Suite...we had Bedroom, Living room, kitchen, bathroom and our terrace overlooking the sea.. Very spacious and clean. The hotel staff were all very courteous and made us feel very welcome. Overall I would definitely recommend Canaves Oia Hotel. The resort itself is beautiful and around every corner is a picture to be taken. This reflects on the prices!!!! Beautiful Hotel, Beautiful resort, Beautiful People....would go again tomorrow. If you are looking for a lively place this is not the time of year to go as it is very quiet until about the third week in May.

The stay at Canaves Oia Hotel , enhanced our 2 day visit to Santorini.

The spacious balconies in each suite, with spectacular views, create your own private paradise. I highly recommend you reserve a room with a private plunge pool, facilitating the enjoyment of the beauty of the island, without having to leave the room!

Well appointed and equipped rooms, complete the wonderful accommodation at this hotel.

Staff are extremely friendly and obliging, and common areas are beautiful.

Just a few steps away from the pedestrian street, the location of the hotel is perfect!
The premium price is appropriate for the premium experience!

Stayed in room 5 which had a balcony with amazing view to the caldera, very private, comfortable, quiet, has nearby exit to street which was great to get in and out of the hotel without climbing many steps, simple, elegant decor. The breakfast was outstanding. Friendly staff. Will most definitely come back!

We had a memorable stay at the Canaves Oia Suite recently. Was upgraded to honeymoon suite which had an outdoor jacuzzi but was too windy/cold during our stay to truly enjoy. The view was outstanding and the staff is first rate, always smiling and offering good advice re things to do and restaurant recommendations. Breakfast was great.

Offered a transit room in the hotel section of this property due to late flight - very considerate. Room was noisier than the suite but still has stunning views.

We loved our stay at the Canaves Suite and would love to return.

Room Tip: All rooms I think have good views.

Dear SYD-YYZ,

Thank you very much for your great praises! It was a real pleasure having you with us this May!

Our hotel is built on the highest point of the cliff side and combines the most panoramic amazing views and maximum perspective with the minimum number of steps in Oia's Caldera. The elevator at Canaves Oia Suites definitely makes going up and down even easier !

Santorini is very beautiful all year long but definitely a delight when it is more sunny and less windy. We definitely understand your concerns. We understand that in April and May weather can be unpredictable and this is why we have invested in an interior restaurant which is always available to our guests in case of bad weather.

We wish that you have a wonderful rest of the summer and look forward to welcoming you back to Santorini in the future- hopefully with better weather!

Best regards,

Thanassis Papetanas
