“made Santorini magical”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

We spent 4 days in Santorini, and Finikia's place made it magical.

Oia was a 15 minutes walk away, which in my opinion allowed for less touristy and more beautiful view of Santorini. Very warm and accommodating staff.

We had a sunset cruise which was fun, but would say time spent at Finikia was more memorable. It was so lovely we spent most of our time at Finikia's place, aside from a trip to Oia, one dinner out, and . Yes - we had almost all our meals there. The food at Finikia's restaurant is a worth a visit in itself. Try the steamed mussels in ouzo.

Evenings and nights are beautiful and very romantic. Afternoons were spent winding down with a book and/or at the jacuzzi, after a delicious breakfast (with a different homemade marmalade everyday!).

Stay here for a memorable experience.

Room Tip: We had room 6, with our balcony facing the sunset. There were 3 rooms, i think, facing the same dire...

We stayed for a week at the end of June & would thoroughly recommend this hotel as great value for money in very expensive but beautiful Oia. It's about a 20 minute walk into town but perfect for the lovely sunsets. The staff were very friendly & helpful & the food in the restaurant was delicious & reasonably priced. The only criticisms would be that the rooms are rather basic (but perfectly clean) & the breakfast could have more choice (ie there was no cereal available). We would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: We stayed right next to the pool which was lovely but lots of steps upto the restaurant.

Stayed at Finikia's Place for 5 days end of June with my husband, loved it. The hotel is only a short walk to Oia, which allows you to enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside and the beauty of Oia at the same time, avoiding the tourists masses (Oia seems to be a very popular cruise destination). Most important the hotel has a lovely pool, which you will not get in Oia for anywhere near the same price. The pool was so welcome, either just for a quick cooling dip or for spending a lazy day (especially after quad biking around the whole island.....great fun!) Rooms are basic but spacious and the local style of architecture is elegant and delightful. What's more, you can enjoy incredible sunset views from Finikia's Place own restaurant terrace - just gorgeous! Staff are very warm and helpful, incredibly hard working guys. It's not a 5 star hotel, we had the occasional hiccup....our aircon didn't work and it was stiflingly hot. That said, this should not detract from the exceptional value of this hotel and we were delighted overall, we would go back, no question.

Room Tip: Pay a touch more for a better room with good sea view......it'll be worth it. Some of the rooms...

My wife and I spent 7 enjoyable days here end of June, beginning of July. The hotel is clean and comfortable, the staff friendly and accommodating, and the food served in the splendid ‘rooftop’ restaurant is delicious. You cannot stay here and not be impressed with the beautiful, unobstructed sunsets that can be viewed from your room or from the restaurant. As others have mentioned the hotel is a 15 minute walk from Oia but this didn’t diminish our experience. A great place with great food and great staff!

finikia's place is easily accessible by public bus. it is by the roadside. the receptionist dont provide much helpful information when i checked in. the wifi was terrible! the room was small and doggy with only a few small light bulbs. no ceiling lamps at all. the room was quite different from the photos shown. from the room, could oversee the aegean sea and pool. the atmosphere of this hotel was not bad. breakfast was breads, coffee, fruit juice, ham and cheese.

We ended up here after supposed toilet problems at atlantida villas required us to move from our room with a view to aNother hotel. We really liked finnikia place and it was a vast improvement from our first hotel. There is a nice pool. The rooms are spacious and spotless with simple but stylish furnishings. The staff are absolutely charming and there is a terrific restaurant with a lovely garden terrace on one side and a balcony facing the sea on the other side - a great spot to watch the sunset and look down over the plains running down to the ocean. Note that there is no view of the volcano crater from the hotel but this is not far away and there are many opportunities to see this. The hotel I s in a village just outside Oia town so I'd suggest a car or motorbike as there is no bus service and it's a long walk along a busy road to Oia town.

Room Tip: Family room is good. Large space with a loft bedroom for the kids - up a spiral staircase.

The service was exceptional. From reception to the restaurant staff. So friendly! They helped us with our enquiries about the island and other islands we were travelling to after Santorini. I notified the hotel that we were arriving around 1am and they booked a taxi for us. Although the reception was closed, they had directions to our room which was so helpful.
Breakfast was simple yet amazing. Couldn't get enough of the homemade marmalade. Dinner was superb and the sunset just sealed the deal.
The hotel had a great traditional Greek vibe. Exactly what I was looking for when I booked the hotel.
The room was nice and clean. I loved the seating outside each room. A great chilling spot to take in the mornings or late afternoons. We had a jacuzzi right outside our door. Very convenient! The view at the pool was beautiful as well. I can't fault this hotel. I wouldn't mind a TV in the room though.
The hotel is a nice 15 minute walk into Oia village. There are bus links just in front of the hotel into Oia or Fira. Taxis come by frequently as well, so travel isn't a problem.

Awesome experience!
