It has to be one of the best stays ever at this lovely property. The rooms are excellent and the view is just breathtaking. One could sit for hours with a drink and admire the landscape and watch the sunset. ! They have an excellent staff to give recommendations and the bar/restaurant is also very nice. Well done!

My stay at the Canaves Oia was a mixed bag. The views from every vantage point in the hotel are breath taking, but there are also a number of draw backs. Admittedly, I made my reservations at the last minute, like the day before. I was island hopping and remembered that I had book marked Canaves on Instagram. Just from the pictures I had seen others post alone, I knew that i wanted to stay there. And quite frankly, the pictures were accurate, the views of the ocean, the sunrises and sunsets were unparalleled for that side of the island. My initial encounter with staff was a bit awkward. I had three pieces of luggage and it was a bit of a hassle to get the luggage to the room. Staff worked with me and gave me a room that was pretty much at the entrance of the hotel; it was also near the receptionist's desk so that wasn't bad either... Especially since I could not check in early; I arrived between 12 and 1 and check in was at 3PM. That was a bit of a disappointment, but I hung out at the roof top bar/cafe and that placated me some. To be honest, the view from the roof top bar/cafe was breathtaking. The skies were clear and the sun was bright, so the legendary Santorini blue and white was on full display. What brought things down however, was one of the waitresses. It's clear that staff is used to a certain type of clientele, and when you don't fit that mold they have questions. I was a bit disgusted by the questions about what I did for a living, being that I am a professional, but I tolerated that as well as the lies that gyros were typically made with chicken and pork.... I nevertheless ordered the gyro and I enjoyed the meal, it was delicious. When my room was eventually ready, I encountered another obnoxious staff person, who the following day made it clear that her name was Christina.... Again I was subjected to questioning as a solo woman traveler and she attempted to size me up when I told her about my dining preferences even though I insisted on fine dining on the caldera side of the island so I could see the sunset over the volcano. As a tip the hotel that I stayed at faced the other side, so even though the sunsets and rises were spectacular, if you wanted to see them over the volcano you needed to be on the other side. With that said, after my initial conversation with this staff person, I took to exploring the accommodations. I am not sure if it was the location of the room, the fact that the tiles were ceramic and the combination of the ocean water, that the accommodations had a sour smell. A word of caution, if you like to write like I do, the staff reads your social media pages. So when I commented about the bartender and other staff, along with the room and the lack of CNN, all of those things were addressed. Staff had taken steps to make sure that the room smelled good. The room was impeccably kept, with all white everything... tiles, chairs, couches, bed linens, bath and tubs. The bathroom toiletries were Hermes, which seems to be the brand of most luxury digs in Greece. And the view from the tub which faces the window for a nice romantic bath was stunning, and so was the shower. I also must say that the bed was incredibly comfortable. I slept very soundly and comfortably. And it is clear that this hotel is made for lovers in mind. There was a mirror on the wall facing the bed, which made me chuckle. And for people like myself who love to travel with a bunch of clothes and shoes, there is a full walk in closet. The best part of the room was my heated plunge pool. I took in the sunset after an hour or two of sun bathing from my deck and was again mesmerized. I also sampled room service for breakfast. The food was good, service was prompt and staff was thorough. I also enjoyed the care with which my room was maintained. Again, staff was professional. Because I didn't take to my initial encounter with concierge staff that well, I ended up getting around the island on my own. I am sure that hotel staff will work with you, but if you have an idea of what you want to do it may be even better. I hit the Gavalas and Santos wineries, as well as the excavation site and red sea. I also managed to get to a local eatery courtesy of my drivers, I think had I gone with hotel staff, I would not have done so much so quickly. I also got to Thira on two nights and walked around which I highly recommend. The other drawback is the steepness of the stairs. If you have issues walking up and down or outright clumsy you need not wear heels or any shoes that don't have traction. I can't count the times I heard revelers struggling to get back to their rooms because they had on heels. Overall, however the property and in general the staff, were professional. The management/owner really solicits feedback. They have personal touches as notes addressed to guests individually, and they reach out after your stay for additional constructive feedback, which I can appreciate. Overall, it was a wonderful stay. I truly respect the fact that the staff seeks to accommodate their guests on such a detailed level. The follow up was remarkable and impressive, and again, the room was wonderful in terms of size, comfort, amenities and view. I would recommend this place for lovers or honeymooners. I would also advise that you get a room with a tub and plunge pool, both are definitely worthwhile. Lastly, be sure to enjoy some time at the rooftop bar and of course the sunrises and sunsets from your room.... Again, the views were breathtaking.

I visited Oia on the beginning of November. Excellent weather and maybe the best place I have ever stayed in my life. Excellence in full detail. An experience I will never forget. Eating breakfast on the cliff or enjoying drinks on the kaldera is a "real DREAM"

Truly magical stay in a spectacular hotel with a phenomenal view and location. Within walking distance of Oia shopping and restaurants. Very comfortable hotel with great service. Vicky and Christina were especially helpful and upgraded us - even though the original room was spectacular in a cave-like setting. Would recommend this hotel strongly.
