I booked a room for 4 nights from Sept 10-14 at 59 euro a night with VIP Suites. Thinking that I found an excellent bargain, my guts dropped when the check-in staff told me that I actually booked a beach villa which was 4km away from Oia town center. Initially, I refused to accept the room on the basis that they only showed the pictures of the caldera rooms on a travel site. The manager, Tia, then pointed out that there was some text description that clearly showed it was a villa on the beach. A refund was not possible, as it was me who made the mistake. She did, however, listened to my request on using my payment to stay in a caldera room for the last 2 days of my time in Santorini. She was also nice enough to help me to find an alternative accommodation for 2 nights in a nice family run B&B at a very good price. Even my mistake made the beach villa unavailable to other potential guests for at least one day, I was not charged for their loss.
Talking about the suite itself, it's simply amazing. The single room suite is small yet very clean and functional. There is a kicthenette with an oven-stove, fridge, cook wares and even oil and seasonings! There are sea view 3 suites in my current location with 2 balconies overlooking the southern part of Santorini and the volcanic island. The view is so great, that I have been sitting here in the lower balcony to enjoy it since I checked in 3 hours ago. Note: the smaller 2 persons suite has no balcony but a hardly accessible rooftop sundeck.
The price for staying in these suites aren't the cheapest in Oia but you can always offset it by cooking your own meals in the room. If you are planning to go to Santorini and don't mind to pay a little extra for accommodation, book a suite with VIP Suites.
