Our honeymoon stay - it was so magical!

What a beautiful hotel this is, literally one of the best we have ever stayed in! John, Desi and the team are so welcoming, they have the best recommendations and they made every day at Canaves so special! Our room was amazing, with the most incredible view that didn’t fail to amaze you every single morning. The champagne breakfast is so tasty with so much to choose from and the mimosas make it even better! Desi arranged the best itinerary for us to include a boat trip, a special dinner at The Sunday Suites, hiring a buggy for the day and recommending the best beaches, the open air cinema and the wine tour with sunset dinner. This trip was so special to us as it was our honeymoon and the Canaves Hotel made it extra special - a honeymoon that we won’t forget. Another special thank you to John, Desi, reception, the bar staff and Paris also at The Sunday Suites who was so lovely. We hope to return next year. Love The Weekley’s xxx

The Best of the Best

Sometimes you just need to state the obvious in clear and simple words.

My boyfriend and me fell in love with this marvelous hotel and the incredible staff. The restaurant attendants and bartenders were a dream.

The hotel has the very best views of the Aegean sea. We had our own pool and deck w private views of the sea. We didn't want to leave this incredible establishment.

You must book your vacation at this dream of a hotel!!

Beautiful! Stylish! Friendly! Best location on the boardwalk! Sexy room accommodations!

Love this hotel!!!!!!

Great place to stay ....

Just what we needed after a stressful few months at work... Plenty of sun.... beautiful location and suberb Hotel - The Welcome was amazing and attention to detail .... spotless .... The hotel was very peaceful when we went which was ideal to de stress. The location is on the outskirts of Oia but still far enough away to be quiet. The staff are so helpful and you get the feeling they want to make sure you happy. In the morning we set our alarms just so we could watch the sunrise .... then go back to sleep for a snooze before breakfast. The views all round are absolutly breathtaking. We hope to return again soon - We fully recommend this hotel and would say 'You would not regret staying here!'
