I'm sure you would be hard pressed to find a negative review of Ikies. The hotel is beautiful all around -- the views, the rooms, the service, the food, the staff, the location. I stayed in the Sailors House, which was probably one of the least private rooms, technically. But even still, my view, the room itself, the little touches of sailing decor (maps, books, etc) all made for a relaxing and breathtaking stay. My room was not uber-luxurious, but it had a stylish traditional-rustic minimalism to it. The rooms are very clean, quiet and beds are so comfortable. Ikies is far enough away from the center of Oia, but close enough to walk. The sunset (and nighttime) views over Oia are to die for, as are the views of the Caldera. The pool, while tiny, is lovely. Breakfast service is something to look forward to, and honestly most things I ordered from the kitchen were pretty fabulous. And there is the staff: Loella and Katerina go above and beyond. They are all truly outstanding, but these two in particular stuck with me. I was traveling solo so was constantly asking for advice, etc, and the whole staff could not have been any friendlier or accommodating. I miss them! I was there in August, in the height of tourist season, and still felt like I was a million miles away. I would go back in a heartbeat.
