Wonderful experience and amazing staff

My review? Well do I start... This was our 12th year wedding anniversary - From the moment we arrived at the hotel, we were given the utmost of attention, from the staff who carried our luggage, through to reception staff who gave our keys and John Boubaris, the hotel manager, who took us to the bar and gave us a few mocktails and tour of the hotel. From then onwards, our stay, was amazing and we could not have expected anymore from anyone at the hotel. The food (breakfast & dinner) was delicious, so much so, that we, at times, had to skip lunch! Our room was inch perfect and the views were breathtaking - we could have just stayed there all day without going out and exploring Oia. The hotel also arranged a car for us so we could go hopping to Imerovigli and Thira, with the car being dropped off at the hotel which was really convenient. Lastly, I want to mention the staff again - I travel a lot but the staff here at Canaves Hotel were exceptional, accommodating to all our needs and making our stay, a holiday to remember. We will for sure, recommend this hotel and its location to anyone who is after a relaxing experience in close proximity to everything Oia has to offer. Lastly, I want to personally thank John Boubaris and his team for really looking after us and giving us lasting memories.

Amazing View !!

From arrival, check-in, get in room, they all provided excellent service. Hotel is located in a end of the Oia which is quiet and peaceful with stunning view. Location is good, as we can walk to the shopping area and have a hiking from Oia to/from Fira with amazing view. Staff with friendly and always has a smile.

Breakfast with not much selection but good enough. Although it's expensive but it's worth every penny...

Canaves Oia is absolutely breathtaking. My husband and I were amazed at how awesome the staff is, and let’s not forget about how gorgeous the hotel and views are!!! Unreal. It was an unforgettable honeymoon and I still dream of returning one day! Gorgeous pools, delicious breakfast. Thank you Canaves Oia for the trip of a lifetime! We will never forget it.

Stunning views

Canaves is a beautiful hotel in the heart of Oia in Santorini. The rooms are quite spacious but their are a lot of stairs to reach the room. The best thing about this property is its location and the views.

Wow, great room, great service, great view

We were there at the very beginning of the season (April). We had a two floor suite that was very comfortable and clean (the bathrooms were a bit dated). But the views--we were able to drink our complementary wine and gaze out at the caldera or toddle down to the pool bar for a drink. Very friendly and helpful staff. I would definitely stay here again!
