This was probably one of the most beautiful rooms I've stayed in. I did a lot of research looking for the perfect place in Santorini and this checked every box at much less of a cost of some of the bigger hotels. The lava cave pool is incredible and was one of our favourite parts! Katerina went above and beyond to answer our questions and make our trip successful. It was even my birthday and we came home to find balloons, flowers, and cake - it was really thoughtful. The communication from the beginning was flawless. Yes, there is a pathway that goes right in front, but it was never that busy because it's mostly only people who are staying in that particular area. It was about a 2 minute walk up to the main part of Oia. Overall I would highly recommend if you can book the Lavacave - you won't be disappointed!
