We stayed three nights at Ikies and loved it! This was my 1st trip to Santorini and we arrived at the hotel around 10pm when everything was dark. There is a public parking lot right at the top of the hotel which worked out great for our rental car. In fact, everything was within walking distance for us that we didn't even use the car except to drive back to the airport.
When I woke up in the morning and opened the door, I was blown away by the views. Just Amazing!!! Breakfast is included, and it's not just a crappy free breakfast, it was really really great! It's brought down to you with a white table cloth and very nicely setup so you can sit and enjoy the view over the ocean.
The staff was excellent, they went out of their way to ensure we had a great time and all their recommendations were right on as far as activities and restaurants. I've never really stayed in a place that was so attentive to their guests.
My favorite things was walking from Oia to Fira on the walking/hiking path. I highly recommend this! The path starts right at the entrance to the hotel.
Can't wait to come back!
