“A romantic stay in Oia”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2010

We stayed at the Atrina Traditional Houses for 5 nights for our honeymoon. I'll start with the positives:
- view was amaing - right over the caldera, although note that you can't see the sunset as it is blocked by the buildings.
- our stay was really relaxing and romantic - great to just sit on the balcony and take in the view while reading a book or eating breakfast
- breakfast each morning was really delicious - especially the fruit and greek yoghurt. You also get a basket of pastries and tea/coffee and a fresh OJ.
- location is excellent - about 5 minutes walk into the main shopping/restaurant area of Oia
- service was great - Marina gave a lot of information (e.g. sailing cruise, rental of a car or scooter, massages). You are given a mobile phone to reach reception whenever they are not physically there. The staff were really friendly - especially the pool bar staff and staff who bring your breakfast to your balcony each morning.

The points I thought were not so great:
- It was a real shame we didn't get any special treatment as it was our honeymoon. I assume everyone goes to Oia for their honeymoon but that is no excuse not to provide something a little extra (eg a congratulations card). I got this service at a hotel which was a third of the price!
- The rooms are a little basic - I know these are small things but for the money you pay you would expect a lot better in quality - e.g. toilet paper is very flimsy, bathroom products are pretty dismal so bring your own (compared to a hotel we stayed at for 1/3 of the price), floor was grimy - it looks like concrete which has been painted over but has a lot of marks on it, bathroom was a huge room but had a tiny shower in a corner - the rest of the bathroom could have been used to install a jacuzzi (something you would expect for the price you pay).
- We were told that the cheaper rooms were not available for the period of our stay so ended up staying in a more expensive room. However, while we were there we noticed some of the nights the cheaper rooms were empty. So, if you are staying for a long period of time and don't mind moving rooms to another room, I would recommend asking if a cheaper room is available for some of your trip. We did see one other couple move from an expensive room to a cheaper room halfway during their stay so it is possible.

All in all, I had a really enjoyable honeymoon in Oia and would recommend this hotel but just keep in mind that you are paying a lot of money simply because of the view and location!

We traveled with another couple and booked our trip based on tripadvisor reviews and photos. As with any place with a view like this, the photos cannot do it justice. This was an amazing experience across the board. The service was excellent, US Air lost our luggage and Marina at the front deck handled everything and got it from Athens to the hotel the next day. The pool is wonderful with a view that is unforgettable. We were a bit ahead of the high season and it felt like our own private resort. The location was great and everything was in walking distance. The rooms were authentic but modern and beautiful. We stayed in Melanie's House and our friends in the Studio. Both on the same level and about the same size. Both excellent views. We would absolutely recommend this hotel and can't imagine another hotel at this price point being able to provide the type of service and experience we had. Oia is a great place to relax and take in Santorini and if you are going to Oia, stay at Atrina, you will not regret it.

We, along with 2 other couples, stayed at Atrina for 3 nights over the Easter holiday weekend. A friend of mine had stayed at Atrina the previous year and had highly recommended it. After now staying there myself, I can honestly say that it's the most beautiful place I have ever stayed. Oia itself is incredible, but our stay at Atrina really made Oia and Santorini the highlight of our vacation in Greece.

We shared Canava 1894 with one couple and the other couple stayed directly next door in the neighboring room. Between the 3 couples, we had an entire level to ourselves, so the porches overlooking the pool and ocean were only occupied by the 6 of us. The rooms were all beautiful with the traditional white washed walls and comfy furniture. Eventhough we shared with another couple, we felt like the 2 separate rooms afforded each couple privacy. There was a nice kitchenette as well, perfect for storing all of our drinks and snacks. The bathroom was a bit different for us as we are used to a shower and not just a handheld in the tub. It wasn't a big deal for us...just something new and something that we experienced at other places in Greece as well.

Breakfast was simple, but absolutely delicious and fresh and brought right to your door every morning. There's nothing better than eating your fruit and yogurt while staring out at the incredible views from the porch. I kept on commenting to my husband that I felt as if we had stepped out of a travel magazine and directly into Atrina Houses. The view was truly breathtaking no matter the time of day. We also enjoyed the pool which we were not expecting to even use in early April. But it was definitely hot enough to enjoy some poolside cocktails while admiring the incredible view.

I could seriously go on for days about Atrina Houses. It is one of our favorite memories to review from our Greece trip and I can't possibly say enough about this incredible location. We hope we are lucky enough to get back there some day.

See my review of Santorini & the town of Oia.
It is the ONLY place to stay in Santorini. Beautiful, incredible, what everyone thinks Greece is or should be.
After much research we chose Atrina. When we arrived I looked at all the other accom we had been considering esp the ones highly ranked on trip advisor.
We found Atrina to have the best location, incredible views and really looked like what you saw on the web pages. We also saw how easily people could pick the wrong place... some faced backwards into the village, some were so close to the road that the people walking by could watch you eating breakfast or lying in your swimmers on a sun lounge.
Time and again we thanked our choice. The only issue we had was the price, but compared to many other properties that is "santorini" value for anything with a view & that is of a high standard.
We found our entire stay blissful, although we did tire of the same fare for breakfast every day. They could mix it up a bit. It was generous in size but lacked variety.
The staff were very helpful and courteous.
Oh and another very important thing when choosing your accomm in Santorini, find out how many stairs to your house! Some places have tricky access.
We are very fussy travellers and can highly recommend Atrina Houses for a dream holiday in Santorini.

Breathtaking views, very good friendly service, lovely individual houses - what's not to like ?! We went with our 8 month old baby and the management was happy to provide a cot for her. This was the most relaxing holiday and the location and hotel and the VIEWS were incredible. Highly reccomended.

We stayed at the Atrina last August for a few days and had a terrific time. The location of the hotel could hardly be better. Easy walking distance into Oia, indeed you are right there. For us, Oia was the best location in Santorini. Especially at night it is just magical.

The views from Atrina are also superb. Looking out at the caldera is hypnotic. You can just stare, and look, and lose yourself. As has been said before, there are few other views like it in the world. If you are thinking about whether a visit to Santorini is worth it -- just go.

The room we had was large, with two bedrooms. High ceiling, built into the mountain. Bright. It was relatively well cared for but, in a few spots there was some obvious wear and tear and a few things could have been better cared for. The beds were comfortable, the room never hot.

Breakfast was served on the large patio, with a beautiful view. Big shade umbrella if you wanted to open it. Huge basket of fresh breads/muffins, huge plate of delicious yogurt and honey, excellent juice and coffee. Bkfst like that was terrific. The pool is small yet, it was certainly large enough to cool off and, even in August, the pool area was not crowded. Staff at the hotel was very nice, on the ball, efficient.

If there is one place the hotel could use some improvement was at the front desk, so to speak. While Atrina is a hotel, it doesn't really have all the services of a hotel, it is much more of a boutique. You need to be more independent as a guest. That is fine. Yet, in that situation we thought the owner should be more informative, welcoming. While she was happy to greet guests, there simply wasn't the "welcome" we expected or the willingness to offer suggestions, ideas, etc. We got the feeling that while we were welcomed, the owner would be just as happy if we weren't there. That might sound a bit negative, it shouldn't be read that way. Yet, some improvement would be helpful. Also, all hotels in Oia in August are expensive, including Atrina. With all its good points, its location, rooms, etc., it is still likely one of your best options.
