Oia Mare Villas”
My stay at Oia Mare Villas was incredible. The staff went above and beyond to meet me at the local bus station in Oia and carry my luggage (which was not lightweight) to the hotel. The staff introduced themselves by first name and were consistently readily available to answer any questions. The breakfast buffet in the morning was delicious and had a great variety in comparison to other hotels where breakfast is included and extremely limited. The pool area and view from the Oia Mare Villas is unmatched and incredibly gorgeous. An added bonus is the donkey rides from Ammoudi Bay stop right by the entrance to the villas!
You should visit this place...”
We were so excited to see the surroundings when we arrived at Oia Mare Villas. The views are simply awesome, very friendly staff right from the porter who helped carrying our luggages to the receptionist named Vickie and Margarita. They just can't wait to tell you every single details of this beautiful Oia. Sitting next to the pool side with the lovely view of the Aegean sea right in front of us while having our breakfast was so enjoyable.... Oia Mare Villas, the cave houses! Thank for hosting us with many fond memories and a wonderful trip. Daniel Foo, Singapore
Picturesque hotel in the heart of Oia”
We had a great stay at Oia Mare. Oia Mare is a wonderful, romantic botique hotel. My husband and I stayed in a Superior Suite. We had outstanding views; we could watch the sun set from our balcony! The room was spacious and clean; the bath was clean as well (very important attribute to me in any hotel stay) and was supplied with good towels. The bed was comfortable-- not too hard or soft. The hotel staff was friendly and handled issues promptly. (We had some ants in our room and they addressed it right away). The hotel offered nice touches like a complementary bottle of wine for us to enjoy when watching the sunset. The location is fantastic. The villas are located half way down the cliff. The hotel seems to be just far enough away from the congested main pedestian thoroughfares; therefore, it is quiter. In just a few minutes walk you can reach shops or restaurants. The flip side though is that the hotel may be tough to reach for those who have physical challenges; there are a lot of stairs and switchbacks to the main street. We did not use the pool, but did use the community deck chairs--a great place to hang out for the day. The continental breakfast was okay; cold foods were much better than hot foods. If you are driving, try to park at the Hellenic Post Office. It is the lot that is closest to the Best Western (where you check in); the Oia Mare porter will then meet you to help you with your bags. The Oia Mare is a great place to relax and recharge; I can't wait to go back.
Amazing location with top rated staff. You can't find a better location and top notch service. ”
Location, location, location... The most amazing views with the best sunset anywhere. Private and cleanest well kept villas. People line up for hours outside private villas trying to capture sunset ,boats below packed with limited views. No need where stay has the most desired view. Because there is no access for autos, only many steps to get in or out, you will want to have good non slip footwear and get a little exercise in before coming to Oia. Well worth it ( priceless). Don't worry about luggage or shuttle they take care of it, just contact them and they handle it. There staff will amaze you, especially ( the one they call the mule) he took our luggage down on arrival and up the step steps out without loosing his breath. If you don't want to do steps, then you will miss out of what really is Santorini. Young and old along with people using canes handled it. Along these wide steps are shops,views, and restaurants, you can stop catch a breather and then March on.
Love this hotel!”
Leah was the best staff we've met at Oia Mare Villa! Hope we'll see her again next time we visit. The check-in location was hard to find and the trip from the check-in point the hotel was somewhat adventurous. However, the trip was worth it as the hotel provides an excellent view. Room was huge as well. :)
Not as fantastic as what they say”
It was bittersweet. We booked the hotel because we wanted to splurge on a hotel will amazing view and at the same time experience the 'cave' like rooms. When we got there, we were showed a different hotel from what we gathered from pictures in AGODA. We were told that there were actually 2 Oia Mare-s, 1 is situated facing caldera (no awarding winning amazing sunset, crazily steep and narrow steps to our villa but much larger in size). We were scoot off to the Oia Mare at caldera because we booked it not knowing its not the amazing Oia Mare we heard/read/knew about. SO BEWARE! We were not happy, added to the fact that I was 3mths pregnant (dimly lit narrow steps n pregnant woman don't mix). We wanted a room at the original Oia Mare. the manager (we assume) was kind enough to squeeze 2 rooms out when its already fully booked Oia Mare after a 45mins back and forth discussion. We were happy, until.... The rooms, were basically a showroom for Ikea (we were fine, but wait, didn't we pay a 4star hotel price?) but it also meant it fell short of the price we paid. The bathroom shower is the worst we've ever seen. The handheld shower water pressure was crazily weak and we the faucets couldn't adjust the water temperature, its either scalding hot or freezing cold however u turn it. The rooms were not very clean, we found strands of hair around our beds and the blue blanket provided was VERY QUESTIONABLE because there's a notice saying they do their laundry once in a few days but didn't say if they change when new guests arrive. The pool... is not like the picture. Its dirty and the paint was peeling and there were some pipes/hoses around the pool. The poolside was very unkempt. Stay here if you don't a choice. Don't stay here if you can afford even better hotels.
Suitable for honeymoon”
It was a great stay in Oia Mare Villa. View was great, with extra attentive and friendly service. Thumbs up.
one of the best stay in nylife.fantastic sunset. ”
The hotel is exactly as the picture. Its clean and comfortable and perched on the cliff. Probably the best around its area in Oia. There are many steps though but definitely worth tge climb. The staff are amazing. Run like a family owned business. I still remember a night when I asked for assistance for opening my wine which the cork is broken. The staff gave me a free bottle instead as the wine is impossible to open.Everyday just gathering around the pool is really relaxing as we takes in the amazing view.
The location is a bit far away, you have to walk many stairs up and down to the hotel, my hubs said he walked like a donkey. But it worth!! The room is perfect view in oia, very nice sunset, but I cannot watch the whole sunset in my room, so better ask for the hotel of the sunset view room, but hotel provide the nice area for sunset! Breakfast is nice, staff is nice!! Oh yes!! The staff is super strong to carry 2 big luggages for the stairs!!! They are just the god of oia hahaha Enjoy your trip
Enjoyed our stay”
Location - excellent - great view and Oia is a little quieter than Fira...and has better sunset/sunrise view. Breakfast - very good - nice variety and well prepared Not for elderly or handicapped...be ready to climb the steps. Only complaint - one side of queen bed up against wall so you need to climb over partner or up from foot of bed.
The best hotel for Honeymoon but far from bus stop”
My stay at the Oia Mare Villas was great! Hotel staff were very friendly. The only problem is the hotel far from bus stop. It took around 20 mins to bus stop from hotel.
Best part of Oia, because it’s quiet and private! Facilities were great, food was great, pool was fantastic, and the staff were wonderful 😊
Wonderful see wiew with balcony. The staff is very nice and helpful. The traditional housing decoration whihc allow you to familiar the living style in OIA. If you are the first time in OIA, you should book this hotel.
Oia was quiet and beautiful.”
Oia is a lovely village. Transportation to the rest of the island was easy.
staff were very nice, caring and helpful. room was nice and clean. fantastic view. I had to climb up a bit to the hotel but the location is good. good breakfast too.
Old style hotel with great view”
It's an old fashion nice hotel, decorated well, but all the area, houses and hotel was dig inside the stones, you'll feel like you're inside a cave, well furnished. Service was not bad. The great thing about this hotel was the view and it was near to the shopping area.
Great place to stay”
This was a truly unique hotel built into the cliff with incredible views. There are many steps to get to the place but everyone of them is worth it. It will be difficult for old people, but I'm sure you will want to go to that part of the island anyway!
Spectaclar view, you can relax with watching sunse”
This is the best hotel for honey room, you definately wont be regreted to stay here!!! Highly recommended
Very lovely hotel”
The hotel is very lovely and we can see the most beautiful sunset view even on private balcony. The room is very cute with old style decoration, very romantic and relaxing Other than that, we had a great experience. Sam, a bell boy - very strong guy, is very helpful and friendly. He helped us carry the luggages which we don't think we are able to carry them and walk to/from the bus station.
The view from this hotel is incredible ! Staff are very friendly! I definitely come back again :)
