“Blissfully Oia”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

We stayed at the antiquarian room on the last leg of our honeymoon and found everything about the hotel perfect- particularly the staff. Large patio, comfy lounge chairs, hot tub that was warmed for us each night when we got back from dinner. The room itself is nice- nothing overly lux, but quaint. The staff is what makes your stay blissful. They're sweet, knowledgable, prompt and overly accommodating. A lot to choose from for breakfast. Location is also perfect- 8 minute walk to center of town and far enough away that you don't encounter the cruise ship hoopla on the days there are a bunch at port. We plan on returning!

We witnessed one of the prettiest sunsets in the world from our pool on our first night. We woke to an amazing breakfast on our balcony over looking the gorgeous views of Oia.
Staff went above and beyond our expectations & catered to our every need, from booking us dinner and giving us tips on where to go and places to see. They even brought me a glass of milk and a home remedy for a dry cough I had without any request. We had the most amazing time & you definitely get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Fishermans room is nice, don't be scared off by the entrance.

I loved my stay at the Ikies traditional houses. My friend and I arrived early in the morning and the y let us check in early. The receptionists and workers are patient with all our requests and questions and we really appreciate all their help. The hotel is located at the beginning of Oia so it has a prime view of the entire village to its left. We stayed at the Gardener's House, which is the smallest of all suites. Even though we didnt have a private terrace, we had our own little balcony right at the end of the cliffs with an unobstructed view of the caldera.

Thank you for your warm and generous hospitality. We loved staying at Ikies and we are already planning a trip back. I've been in hospitality for 15 years and tend to be very selective, the property is immaculate and private with a terrific breakfast. It's an easy walk to the beautiful village of Oia, really just perfect!

We enjoyed our stay at the Ikies from the moment we arrived. We booked a last minute visit in peak season and got the last room available, the Antiquarian Room. It was very large with two bedrooms / two bathrooms on two levels...more than we need as we were only a couple. It had a superb terrace with breathtaking views across the caldera and Oia which made for a spectacular private viewpoint for the famous Santorini sunsets. The Ikies team was friendly and superbly helpful during our entire 6 day visit. A special thanks to Katarina, Maria, Luella, and Stavos for their hospitality. We truly felt like a guest at a friend's home. Well done to the Ikies team for living up to our lofty expectations!

Room Tip: The Antiquarian room has a huge terrace with a private jacuzzi. From what we could see the Winemake...

We just stayed two nights at the Gardener's room mid August with my partner. It was one of the best hotel experiences in our lives. We were warmly wecomed by the staff upon our arrival. The sun was slowly setting when we arrived so it gave a very magical look to the place and the surroundings. It was definitely a "wow" moment! Even though we booked the smallest room (Gardener's) we cannot fault this place. We loved that the little table at the edge near the pool was for us to use and having breakfast there looking at the incredible view was a great moment (and breakfast was yummy and plentiful). Oia town is just walking distance and there you have plenty of cafes, shops and restaurants to enjoy. Staff is very very nice and helpful. They even made us forget about the power cut on the island! My partner and I cannot wait to be able to go back there. Oh, for those who are looking for a place to spend their honeymoon, this is it ;).
