My wife and I went on our honeymoon for 7nights to sardinia (porte cervo), 5 nights in rome and 5 nights in Santorini from Oct02-Oct07. Santorini was by far the highlight for us, largely because of Katikies. The staff are extremely friendly, helpful, and welcoming. They upgraded us to a honeymoon suite from a junior suite for the last 4 nights. So we stayed at both room 14 (junior suite) which has one of the best views of the whole hotel and room 40 (one of the honeymoon suites with a jacuzzi) which is just a lovely spacious room in a little more secluded area near the top of the cliff so with a lovely view too. The food is amazing by the pool and we also went to the gourmet restaurant which was very romantic and the food was superb. Overall i couldn't imagine staying at a better hotel than this. I hope we are lucky enough to stay there again

The Katikies Hotel has one of the most spectacular views on the Island, seeing the caldera view for the first time left me speechless, nestled in the edge of the volcano, the hotel commands a spectacular uninterrupted view of the ocean and mountainous cliffs surrounding.
The staff made my stay one of the most comfortable I have ever had in a hotel, I have experienced impeccable service before but not at this level, the desire to make us comfortable and enjoy every part of our stay was absolutely genuine and sincere, the pool staff especially made us feel more like special members of family rather than guests.
Both restaurants served exquisite food, again with impeccable service, breakfast was an extraordinary experience, one I couldn't wait to wake for every morning.

Thank you to all the staff! We were very sad to leave you.

Jaw dropping views, terrific food combined wth truly outstanding service. This is one of those places where you get the feeling you have the world in your hands. I was injured and struggling to get around, which is a challenge when your basically on a cliff face in the middle of the Aegean Sea; but this didn't stand in the way of the staff making our stay memorable and comfortable. We loved having breakfast on our terrace each morning. Since we were unable to travel we got to eat exclusively at the hotel, and were never dissappointed. We tried most of the dining experience, I'd highly recommend the Greek restaurant where we were presented with 10 delicious meals. IHighest marks for cleanliness and service. Treat yourself and stay here.

Stayed in this hotel for five days in early Aug 2013.
We were hell bent on staying at a place with a magnificent view of the caldera, and the Katikies Honeymoon Suite did not disappoint!
The suite we got was the top most one beside the reception area, with its own private balcony, Jacuzzi and lounge area, all of which have a perfect on obstructed view of the caldera.
Initially we weren't too sure if we made the right decision as when we first got there we didn't feel the reception was 'welcoming' as we expected it to be. We had a friendlier 'welcome staff' from the Athens hotel we stayed in. To be fair though the rest of our experience with the staff was great and had no other issues.

Similar to the other reviewers, we had problem with the showers too, we couldn't get proper hot water during certain times of the day, I'm not sure if it's related to being the top room on the cliff.

The hotel have a rule to put your towels and robes in the bath tub for it to be replaced, I figured this out on my third day. So I put my bath robe on the head area of the tub, I even tried putting it on the bathroom floor and bedroom floor, but house keeping keeps putting my robe back on the clothes hanger, they were never replaced on all 5days:(

Other than these nuisances, our stay at Katikies was quite perfect and very relaxing. Breakfast was delivered daily to our room, which is great considering the room location.

We tried the sunset wine tasting experience offered by the hotel, with the ambiance, view and perfect weather it was one of the most romantic settings I could ever possibly pray for. It's icing on the cake that our sommelier was quite entertaining and helpful introducing the Greek wines.

We had their dinner package as well, and it was one of the best meals we had in the island one which could surely rival that of the more well known restaurant Ambrosia Santorini.

We had an incredible time at Katikies hotel. We travel extensively and this is one of the best and most scenic hotel we stayed in. The views are incredible, we had a suite with a terrace over looking the caldera with its deep blue water. Breakfast was delivered daily to our terrace, it was a great way to start the day, I would recommend the yogurt with honey and fruits the best greek yogurt ever. Sitting at the Infiniti pool was the most relaxing experience, the staff members without exception were all very friendly very attentive to all our needs. Alejandro the manager always made sure we were satisfied with our stay. We ate at the gourmet restaurant , a very romantic spot, it sits only 4 tables with the most gorgeous view and fabulous food. We spent 5 nights there, it was very difficult to leave at the end as we got used to the pampering in this idyllic place. We will definitely come back to Katikies again and will always remember that beautiful view and warm service.

Katikies is not just about being at a five star hotel, it is much more than that! They know exactly how to offer you a complete experience! From the front desk team (thanks Alejandro for everything!) to the dinners, to the room's amenities and the pool service (and the view WOW), we had the best stay of our lives! Giving you a cellphone to talk directly to the general manager wherever you are is not as awesome as not needing it! Our pictures perfectly describe our happiness, but if you want the same feeling, you must go there!

We have travelled extensively but never been to a hotel like this before. Luxury built into the cliffs in Oia. Fantastic service. Guaranteed sunshine, never got too hot as many people had warned us - there was an ever present cool breeze. 2 infinity pools were great to relax in. We loved the salads on the hotel menu which we had for lunch most days. The staff were ever present to look after our every need without being overbearing. Only older children allowed.
