My husband and I stayed at Kirini (then named Katikies Suites) for a portion of our honeymoon trip to Greece. To say the least, we loved it!! Lefty (as he is known) the manager was always at our disposal, as was Sabrina the assistant manager. Both were very friendly and went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. When we missed our ferry to Mykonos they even made arragements for us to stay last minute at one of their sister resorts in Imerovigli (and only charged us the Kirini rate which was less than the other) since they had no availability at Kirini. They even called the resort in Mykonos to let them know not to expect us and to see if we could get our money back for that night. Even without this misstep, their service and attention was second to none.
The hotel itself was great, built right into the cliff as so many of them are in Santorini - it had stunning views of the caldera and the pool deck was great for lounging and relaxing with fresh towels and staff (dressed all in white) to adjust your umbrella shade or bring you a drink. The room was spacious, clean and nice - our only complaint was that they had issues wiht the water one day and we had no hot water for an afternoon. Each guest gets a cell phone that can be used to call back to the hotel at the push of a button if you find yourself lost, need to hand over the phone to your taxi driver for more accurate directions, or whatever else you may need.
The location of the hotel was also great. Oia - is by far my favorite location in Santorini. It is not as busy as Fira and has amazing views of the sunset and caldera. The rest of island is easily accessible by taxi or 4 wheeler.
Dinner the last night of our stay there poolside was the best meal we had all week (which is saying something since the food in Greece in general is fabulous and especailly at the restaurants we ate at in Santorini). Needless to say we can't wait to go back. We will definitely stay at Kirini again and would highly recommend this hotel.
