We stayed at Caldera Villas for 3 nights in Sept. You must first check in in the bus station in the town's main square and get your key from the Ecorama kiosk. They sent a wonderful person to carry your bags to your room but he can only carry 1 bag at once, so you had to wait for him to carry your other one or take it yourself.
The cave rooms are way below the main street in Oia (92 steps down). Being younger and in not bad shape these stairs were exhausting and we planned our outings around not having to go up and down all day. So just be prepared for the stairs. Also, some of the lights along the path are out so bring a small light with you at night.
The room itself was a little rustic but i guess in Oia these are all cave rooms and they want you to have that experience. The bathroom smelled like sewer gas most of the time (not sure if that's a probelm everywhere in Oia).
The view from the shared balcony was amazing and the breakfast was adequate. There really isnt much of a pool but we weren't there to use the pool anyway.
The one shining aspect of this hotel was the staff. Our first room wasnt exactly what we had in mind, but Monica upgraded us at not extra charge to a much better room. Sam was also very helpful with the baggage. He woke up at 5am the morning we left to carry my wife's luggage up the stairs and waited to ensure that we got our transfer to the airport.
