“Stunning”
Reviewed 18 July 2007

Our arrival at Kirini was perfect. After a ferry ride from Naxos and a taxi journey to Oia we were greeted by the Hotel Manager (Lefty) with a comfortable chair and a glass of champagne whilst we quickly dealt with the formalities of checking in.

Lefty provided us with an orientation of the hotel and explained some history of Caldera. He then showed us to our room. We stayed in a Senior Suite which was beautiful and had a long balcony overlooking the pool and Caldera.

The pool area is extremely relaxing and somewhere we simply did not want to leave. Absolutely nothing is too much trouble and you are spoilt from the moment you arrive pool side.

Over the 4 days we began to know the staff around the pool quite well, and felt extremely relaxed in the amazing surroundings.

We ate in the white cave restaurant and had a wine tasting meal. Our waiter talked us through every wine and although the dining experience is formal, it was at the same time very personal and relaxed.

I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough, yes it is expensive but Oia is a small beautiful part of the world and any hotel with these views and service will of course demand these prices.

I have to say this was the most amazing vacation. The hotel and staff all made our stay the most memorable and relaxing. From the time you arrive the driver (Dimitri), Manager (Lefty) and staff uphold the 5 star rating.

We were given a cell phone upon arrival to contact the staff at any time. We had a beautiful suite overlooking the most beautiful view. It almost makes it hard to leave the property and we rarely did during the day.

I have read that many people think that it is expensive... and it is, and should be for the rooms and service you get. I highly suggest having dinner in the hotel's "White Cave" restaurant.

We are already planning our return.

Reviewed 19 September 2006

While the Kirini is a wonderful hotel, it is in no way worth the exorbitant rates they charge. I've traveled the world extensively and have stayed in spectacular accommodations along the way. The hotel rooms at the Kirini are totally basic. Our bed was two twins pushed together. The pillows were hard and the bed covering was a scratchy wool blanket! The bathrooms are minimalist to say the least -- no marble, no tile - just painted cement...and only one sink. The breakfasts, however, were amazing. The setting is unbeatable. Gorgeous views and a close walk to Oia Village. The staff was not friendly although they were helpful. The pool area is gorgeous but there were not enough lounges/seats for the number of guests inhouse at the time. Thus, I wonder how to justify 650 Euro per night for the stay. After a week, it was annoying how there was a charge for everything. No free daily newspaper. No buy backs from the bar. Don't get me wrong -- I had a great time...but expected so much more.
