We stayed in a "Cave Suite with Caldera View" and it was gorgeous. We had two balconies; one totally private and secluded and the second semi-private - both with incredible and uninterrupted views over the Caldera. Our room was huge and had a large bathroom and a separate area with a big bath from which you could see the sea. The private balcony was off the bedroom area and so we were able to sleep with the doors onto this balcony open, looking out to sea and listening to the waves. Overall, great value for money in Oia. It is true that there are a few steep steps to negotiate to get down to the hotel, but this was the same with about half of the other hotels in Oia and it didn't cause us any problems (there were always porters to carry your suitcases etc.). The breakfast was not amazing, but was adequate and when things ran out the staff were happy to bring more on request. We never tried using the hotel for restaurant recommendations/bookings, so can't really comment on this aspect of the service. The transfers provided throughthe hotel were slightly more expensive than other options and we ended up waiting a lot for other guests to arrive for the transfer (note that the transfers are not private). However, overall the transfers were pretty easy and worth the extra 5 euros or so. The pool isn't huge, but is not as small as other reviews suggest and we actually never used it - we opted to hire a 4x4 for 30 euro for 24 hours and head out to beaches around the island instead - highly recommend this. Also recommend the fish tavernas in Ammoudi Bay - we ended up down there for dinner every night of our stay! If we were to visit Oia again we would definitely go back to Caldera Villas.
