“Lovely Room Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

We loved our stay in our,lovely room,at Oia Mare,Villas. Oia is one of the busiest places in Santorini because everyone comes here to watch the sunset. Oia Mare is close enough to the action but not in the middle of it. We had a room with a separate sitting area, small fridge and bedroom in a cave and most important a patio. So charming! The hotel host and hostess were extremely helpful and anxious to please. The breakfast that was included was more than adequate! Quite a few choices for a small hotel. One caution is that it is down a lot of uneven steps so anyone with issues walking would have difficulty. They did provide a porter for your luggage upon check n and check out and the check in location is n the middle of town and easy to find. The great swimming pool is a real bonus

We loved staying here. the staff was excellent, the views were amazing and the location could not be beat. lots of stairs from where you check in until you reach your room but it didn't matter to us! Just more exercise to work off the awesome breakfast provided! and don't worry someone is there to take your luggage from the check in spot to the actual hotel which is about a 10 minute walk through the winding and climbing village! We loved our stay here. very relaxing! and if you like beer check into the Donkey beer!

Whatever you do not miss the sunset. Repeat do not miss the sunset... Cave dwelling never was so perfect. So much to look at go for a walk threw the boutiques and small shops. Sunlight moonlight always gorgeous, the best side of Santorini.

We took the local bus from Thira to Oia for 1.60 euro each .OMV will send you directions to the Best Western to where to check in .. But it is easy to find. You walk up into the village toward the caldera view by a big church. From there turn right and walk about 3-5 min along the main pedestrian walkway, depending on the crowds. Your luggage is portered after you check in, which is great service. The porter deserves a tip .. For the hard work he does..
We chose the Honeymoon suite ... As it looked like the nicest suite out of all of the suites.. And it had a kitchenette ... It was a Great choice ... Had 2 levels ... The top with a living room , Flat screen TV .couch. Kitchenette , outside balcony with small 2 person? Cool water Jacuzzi.. The bottom level ( with narrow stairs ) going down to it with a comfortable double bed ..nice comfy pillows , bathroom , shower and another small balcony ... Wow after sleeping on many hard beds ..with not so great pillows in the past 2 weeks . This was heaven ... Slept the best !!!
I think the only negative things we can say about this suite is that the kitchenette was not supplied with a pot , frying pan .. Or utensils .. We had to ask for them ... The staff said people don't usually use the kitchenette .. So that's why they was no supplies ..
And there was no closet or drawers ( in the bedroom ) in which we could unpack or put our suitcases in .. And if you have food .. There are ants that will be happy to share your crumbs ..
Self serve breakfast ... Very good selection ... Same every day..
Depending on the time of year .. You may or may not see the sunset from your room .. We did not see the sunset from our room .. We were in room 110 ...
All in all this was a Very Nice , comfortable place to stay ... And would recommend it ...

Room Tip: All rooms are Great ... Depends on the amount of money you want to spend .. And how many stairs you...

We stayed there because we wanted to be able to watch the sunset from our room but the hotel is placed low at the cliff, thus gets shaded quickly and we needed to climb to another place to continue watching the sunset. Nonetheless, it had a scenic location, the hotel itself was very beautiful and in the evening many of its residents (young people mostly) sat at their terraces which contributed to a relaxing party atmosphere. The breakfast was served at the pool area and included everything from toast, omelet, ham and cheese, to musli, honey and yogourt and pastries. It's been a year and I still remember it because I had a bit of everything as we would do the famous Oia to Fira hike that morning. The stuff was very helpful with how to find the hike path and which beaches to visit. Overall, it was a positive experience.

We "splurged" and spent two nights at Oia Mare Villas. The hotel is on the sunset side of Oia. Oia is known for great sunsets. The hotel is 150 steps down the cliff from the top. They have a great porter who will move your luggage. Our room was above the pool, had a small kitchen, and an unbelievable view! The breakfast was good. We were there early May 2014. The temperature was a little cold for pool time, but the air temperature was perfect. I definitely recommend Oia Mare Villas. Its hard to get a better sunset from your room..

Room Tip: They are all great

The staff there were really friendly and hospitable. They arranged a car to pick us up in Fira and helped us with luggage. The swimming pool was so beautiful at night. The only problem is that it is not a good place for sea view and sunset.
