The employees and management were so friendly, relaxed and always available to assist us. The food was better than most of the area restaurants with fresh ingredients and very reasonably priced. Simply put - this is a perfect place to stay on Santorini.
We stayed at Ikies for 4 nights and loved it. The location of the hotel is perfect as it’s away (a short walk) from the main strip, giving you more peace and quiet. The staff were wonderful and really couldn’t do enough for you. Our only minor critic (to aid improvement) would be to offer tea/coffee making facilities in the room. They do offer water and initial cold drinks (free). House keeping could have also done a better job - i.e shower gels were not always topped up, dressing gowns not handed up (although damp) but dumped at the bottom of the wardrobe. These are really minor issues and did not affect our stay.
Amazing Hotel in perfect location in Santorini!!!
No words could describe this amazing hotel from the perfect location and beautiful views of OIA and the caldera to the wonderful people and great service at Ikies !!! The whole island is great but it’s hard to even leave Ikies to do anything !!! So thankful that we chose Ikies and Santorini!!!
Amazing Hotel! Superb Staff! Absolutely Perfect!
Being in Ikies is like being at home. Upon arrival, you’re immediately warmly welcomed to this wonderful hotel in Oia. Eleni, Irene and the rest of the staff go way above and beyond to make your stay an unforgettable experience. Everyone was down-to-earth, friendly and always ready to lend a helping hand, be it carrying your bags to your “house” to helping you plan your adventures in sunny Santorini. When we shared a little disappointing experience we had in another town, they went out of their way to brighten our spirits.
We stayed in the Fisherman’s House which was immaculate and luxuriously well appointed. Once you enter, there’s a spacious living & dining room which was great for unwinding and a very comfortable queen bed upstairs in the loft for a good night’s sleep. As all the houses, you have your own personal outdoor dining area in front where they serve a delicious breakfast each day, tailored to your choices. And the caldera view is absolutely breathtaking. Being at the edge of Oia, you have a full panorama of this beautiful town and it’s world-famous sunset in the quiet of your own private oasis.
Ikies feels so much like home that it was hard to leave this amazing haven. So much that we’re already missing it! Absolutely perfect, the best place to be in Santorini!
Cooks House x1 nightHouse of the Boatman x3 nightsIt was a bit spendy to stay at Ikies, but it was the most magical honeymoon experience I could have imagined. The staff was incredible- they were friendly and helpful, helping us make dinner reservations, setting up airport transport, ordering room service, and bringing us amazing breakfast on our balcony (highly recommend the scrambled eggs, yogurt parfait, and Cappucino Freddo.) The rooms were beautiful cave rooms, and House of the Boatman had an amazing hot tub on the deck. We wished the tub had gotten hotter, but it was still wonderful. The bed was OK, not super comfortable but got the job done. The rooms were clean, and the views were breathtaking. The sunset views over Oia with the sun dipping into the Aegean sea were absolutely awe inspiring. I cannot recommend this hotel enough, from the staff, to the room, to the views, to the service, it was an incredible honeymoon experience and we cannot wait to return!
Wow, wow, wow. We did our research and picked Ikes Traditional Houses for our Greek island honeymoon. We couldn't have been more pleased. They meet you in the parking lot to carry your luggage down the steps to your awaiting room"house". The staff is so friendly and the managers, especially Helene, were so helpful in recommending tours and restaurants. We chose the honeymoon package which included champagne with breakfast served on your private patio each morning. The view is spectacular as you are on the eastern end of Oia the town Ikes is in. The room is huge with a sauna, jacuzzi on the patio, jacuzzi tub, etc, etc. I've traveled the world and this is the most unique and special resort/hotel I've stayed in. For a truly unforgettable honeymoon on a romantic Greek island, you can't beat Ikes Traditional Houses.
Wonderful stay at Ikies
We just returned from a 3 night stay at Ikies in the Winemaker room. The room is very private with a large bathroom, large private patio, and hot tub (which is just the outside temperature). The views from our room, specifically the sunset views were better than going into town to see the sunset, and we didn't have to deal with the crowds. We arrived early in the morning, and departed Very early in the morning, and both times, someone from the hotel carried our bags up and down the stairs. The stairs were quite manageable without luggage. Both Irene and Eleni were very responsive to our emails before we arrived, and booked dinner reservations and transport from and to the airport for us. Irene recommended Roka for dinner one night and it was one of our best meals! Breakfast on the patio was also a high part of our stay. You can choose what time and what you want for breakfast, and the amount and quality of food is more than you would get at a normal hotel.
The service is outstanding and was one of our best stays for our vacation!
Everything about this place was perfect!
We stayed for the last part of our honeymoon in The Winemakers House. Incredible service right from booking - we had helpful, prompt emails and responses from Eleni; when we arrived we were met by her and another member of staff carried our bags for us to the room; the room was beautiful, bathroom huge with jacuzzi bath and steam room as well as shower. BUT the view on the private terrace was breathtaking! We had our own jacuzzi on the terrace AND could see views across the whole of Oia and Santorini. Amazing location just a few minutes walk to the centre of Oia. We didn't bother going to the end of the town to see the sunset - we had a perfect view where we were. Breakfasts were incredible and the staff were all so friendly and smiley. We ordered room service a couple of times and had delicious pizza, pasta and cocktails - would recommend the food for sure!
All in all a perfect stay in a perfect place - could not recommend it enough!!
Beautiful stay at Ikies in Oia
We just returned from 4 nights at Ikies Traditional Houses. This was a highlight of our vacation. We stayed in 2 rooms, the Sailors House and The Winemakers House because we booked very late and this was the only way to get to stay at this wonderful place. Both rooms are fabulous, the Sailors House is smaller but plenty of space and is right outside of the hotel pool. The pool is small and quiet, and at times it felt like it was our own pool. So it's nice to walk out of your room and jump in. My only complaint was that the shower is a little small and low, so if you are super tall it may be hard to fit.
The Winemakers House is over the top amazing. You have your own private deck with jacuzzi. The room is very large and the bathroom is huge. The entire resort sits just a 10 minute walk from the town center of Oia and higher on the cliff so the views are amazing. But our view from our deck was so spectacular we didn't want to leave it. I've never chosen to stay in our last night of vacation before, but why would I leave the best view in Santorini? The Jacuzzi is at the temperature of a warm pool and was perfect for the hot days.
We ordered in multiple meals and they were delicious. There is no restaurant but it is obvious that they take their food very seriously. I loved everything I ate. Breakfast is personalized to your taste and served on your balcony each morning and the time your request. Breads are freshly made in their kitchen each morning.
The staff is amazing. Irene was especially helpful, but everyone went out of their way to make sure our stay was relaxing and enjoyable. In my opinion, the location just outside of the town is perfect. I can't recommend this hotel enough.
Best hotel and location in Oia!!!! Winemaker House is worth the price!
The views from this hotel are jaw dropping. You get perfect views of the caldera as well as the sunsets. Most hotels in Oia face the caldera and the sunset is behind them. This hotel is at the far end of the town and sits a bit higher up on the cliff so you get panoramic views of the entire town as well as the caldera and sunset! But Ikies provides much more than the views. The staff and service are exceptional and they cater to all of your needs. We opted to stay in our room and order room service most of the nights because the views from our terrace were far better than anything we would find if we attempted to join the crowds in town. While located in Oia, it’s at the far end so you don’t have the foot traffic watching down on you like every other hotel has. You truly have privacy here, and are only a quick 10 min walk into town. Rent a buggy or a car and explore the rest of the island at your own pace, but mostly stay in and take in the amazing views!! We couldn’t have been happier with the winemakers house. It’s only one of two rooms that has a private terrace behind a closed door, so there’s an added level of privacy. The jacuzzi isn’t too warm either, so it felt like jumping into a normally heated pool and the water temperature was perfect to escape from the scorching heat! The size of the jacuzzi in the winemaker house is much bigger than most other rooms too! If you are staying in Oia, don’t look any further than Ikies!!
