I stayed at Victoria Caves for my birthday. I visited with my partner in mid October.Location: Victoria Caves is a short ten minute taxi from the airport, which will cost about €20-30. Relative to the island, you feel close to most of the central hot spots such as Fira, however, the hotel itself is secluded and is not on any main roads. This feels intentional, as what you get is a quiet, peaceful and private hotel experience.Staff; the staff at Victoria Caves are fantastic. Patient, polite, exceedingly helpful and always on hand to support you. I had mentioned in passing that it was my birthday and they surprised me with a bottle of wine; they encouraged me to add their WhatsApp account so that we had quick communication with the manager, who was super responsive in answering any questions.Facilities: en-suite bathroom, tv in every room with wake up call, free wifi, phone to dial room service, coffee machine, fresh water, personal pool, free fresh breakfast every morning. Everything I needed from my stay was included’Room: we were upgraded to a double and it was incredible. Spotless, spacious and serene. The room was genuinely enormous, to the extent we had an echo. Everything was excellent: it felt like a Greek villa you’d dream about, tucked away into winding Greek roads, away from prying eyes, my partner and I would spend every evening relaxing in the pool or reclining on their outdoor seats reading books. The bed was clean, spacious and soft.We will absolutely be coming back, and would like to thank the staff for being so amazing.

Our recent stay at Victoria Caves in Santorini was nothing short of exceptional. My partner and I were fortunate enough to experience this new hotel that exudes exclusivity and luxury.First and foremost, we were pleasantly surprised by the generous room size. The spaciousness and tasteful decor created an atmosphere of comfort and relaxation that made us feel right at home. It was the perfect retreat after a day of exploration on this stunning island.Impeccable service provided by Alex and the entire staff, from transport arrangement to general enquiries. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with warmth and professionalism.The hotel's central location was another highlight of our visit. Similarly to other properties on the island you will need to travel to and from destinations, We rented a car from day one & It allowed us easy access to the vibrant heart of Santorini, with its charming streets, sunsets, and local cuisine.We took full advantage of this by renting a car during our stay, allowing us to explore the island's diverse landscapes and visit a variety of destinations. Victoria Caves' convenient location made our adventures effortless and enjoyable.Overall, our experience at Victoria Caves exceeded our expectations in every way. It's a hidden gem that offers a perfect blend of luxury, convenience, and personalized service.

The accommodation was lovely and luxurious. Very spacious and clean with two sinks and two showers, very convenient for two people. It had a private tub that was convenient in hot weathers. Daily cleaning of the room including fresh towels. The host Alex was very helpful with any issues and recommendations on car hire and places to eat at (vegetarian). We booked the smart car when we got there which was the best decision as the roads are narrow and taxi's are expensive. I would highly recommend this place to stay at if you are looking for a quiet and romantic get away in Santorini. It is also close to all the tourist attractions.

Victoria Caves suites are so beautiful and made our stay in Santorini perfect. The room was stunning and very clean. The people working there are so helpful, welcoming and friendly. We had an amazing time here. The location is great as it's so close to everything but you get a little more privacy as the area is quiet.We will absolutely be coming back and I couldn't recommend Victoria caves more! 🙂
