We stayed at the Caldera Villas during our honeymoon, its a 4 star resort right on the famous strip of Oia. We read mixed reviews about this place prior to going but we actually enjoyed our stay a lot. We got the honeymoon suite which had a private hot tub with an amazing view over looking the volcano and sea. It was also the most private room in the hotel so that was definitely a contributing factor. The rooms itself are pretty small but the views from the hotel are absolutely stunning. The location is great as its right on the strip, tons of restaurants around and a short walk to watch the beautiful sunsets and even shorter walk to the famous blue domes. HOWEVER the hotel is located on a cliff as is everything else on that strip but the Caldera Villas is actually one of the hotels that’s at the lowest point, meaning there are a lot and i mean a lot of steps to walk up to the strip and a lot of steps to walk down. If you are an elderly person I definitely wont recommend this hotel. Another downside was the pool, it was pretty small.
We payed around $270 a night which was the most affordable hotel on the strip at the time, mind you we didn’t book too much in advance so a lot of the hotels were sold out but for what we payed and the reviews we had read this was a pleasant surprise!
