Another night with little sleep as poor Holly’s bronchitis just seemed to not be improving. She awoke and I knew that things were not positive. She struggled up the stairs and was out of breath sooner than normal. We all insisted she go to the doctor again just to make sure there was nothing else going on. We had breakfast and headed in to …
The sun poured into the window as I rustled out of bed. Holly and I managed to make our way up to the lovely breakfast that was served every morning. We ate up big and then relaxed by the poolside. Before we knew it lunch time was upon us and we were all feeling a little hungry.
We had been recommended a place in Fira by a couple staying …
The sun rose through the window and Holly was not looking any better. After breakfast I took her straight to the Fira medical centre. She was quickly admitted and seen by a very smart english speaking doctor who told us straight away Holly had bronchitis. He prescribed a dose of antibiotics and we were out the door. We went and picked up the …
I opened my eyes to the most incredible view overlooking the ocean. Our room is situated just on the edge of a cliff and you look up and see all the little white and blue houses and tourists just popping their heads over to take the occasional photo. We met for breakfast at about 10:30am and filled our faces with delicious french toast, cheeses, …
We awoke in the beautiful apartment with Jessie and Alex and were soon welcomed by their friends who made us an lovely fresh breakfast with all their leftover food as they were all leaving to go to Cyprus. 15 eggs later and a whole lot of cheese we were all very content and happy. Jessie and Alex were super kind to take us to the port to hire a car …

Historical Traveler Reviews Residence Suites Oia
Just returned from a 4 night stay at residence suites and would review as follows:
The internet pictures and website make the place look like a luxury oasis. It is not. Unless you stay in the honeymoon "suite", it is no use staying here. The suite offers a fantastic view, but the room itself is regular. Some in our party stayed in a regular studio. Their deck was facing a wall.
Wonderful Hotel, beautifully decorated to the smallest detail. The staff are extremely friendly and more than willing to share information and tips on the area.
The best place to come back to and relax after enjoying a fun day exploring santorini!
I looked at the site and I liked what I saw, so I booked 2 rooms from the internet. The honeymoon suite and 1 bedroom-suite.
Enjoyed Residence Suites
Located off the cliffs of Oia this little hotel (5-6 rooms) run by Ecorama was very good. After seeing other accomodations in Oia, the price ranges from 150 to 350+ for very similar rooms. Our room was a main single room (cave like dwelling) painted white, with the worlds smallest kitchen (yet managable). We had a couch, and bed also in this area. Everything was very clean, and nice. Our "shared" patio offered a great view of the sea, and the hot tubs offered similar views. Highly recommended (especially for the price, where everything is very expensive) and we would return. Friendly staff (currently tourism students from the Netherlands).
We booked this hotel using Expedia (first mistake). A week before leaving we got an email from Expedia that the price was almost twice as much as we were originally quoted. (Long story) Our first stop after seeing the room was to an Internet cafe to double check that we were indeed staying in the right place! I know that ad photos are always better than the real thing but the difference was amazing (see photo of bathroom). It's true that the views and sunsets were awesome but I think we were expecting too much from the hotel (second mistake). I know, I know - another spoiled American complaining about not enough pampering and marble at a hotel but believe me for $300 a night for a single room you'd expect more too. The pool is very small (4 ' X 6 ') and the Jacuzzi needed cleaning. In the opinion of my observant 5 year old the place was "creepy" because the room was dug out of the side of the cliff and the rooms resembled caves. Definitely unique! We stayed 2 nights in this hotel and were happy to be checking out and moving on to our next hotel (Andromeda in Imerovigli - awesome!!!).
Residence Suites in Oia , Santorini
Die Zimmer und der Blick waren klasse!!! Die Haushaltung war extrem nett und hat alle unsere Wünsche erfüllt. Es gibt viele Treppen, man muss also recht mobil sein, um herumzulaufen. Aber man ist nah an der Handlung, es gibt fantastische Sonnenuntergänge und viele Esslokale. Nicht weit von den Bussen und Taxis. Ich kann dieses Hotel nur empfehlen und hoffe, dass ich nächstes Jahr wiederkomme!!
Wir waren in den Residence Suites während unseres Aufenthalts in Oia. Das Hotel war spitze und hat eine prima Lage auf den Klippen. Wir waren in einem sehr modernen und sauberen Zimmer. Das Hotel bietet morgens auch ein leckeres kontinentales Frühstück an. Es ist direkt im Zentrum von Oia. Man hat einen überwältigenden Blick über die vulkanische Insel von dem behaglichen Whirlpool im Freien. Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt und werden nächstes Jahr wiederkommen!
Residence Suites in Oia , Santorini
The rooms and the view were awesome!!!!!! The keepers of the roome were extremely nice and catered to all our needs. There are stairs involved so be aware you have to be pretty mobile in order to get around. But you are close to all the action, fantastic sunsets and many restaurants. Not too far from buses and taxi's. I recommend this place and hope to get back next year!!
We stayed at the residence suites during our stay in Oia. The hotel was terrific,and we had a great location on the cliff. We stayed in a room which was very clean an modern. The hotel also offerd a good continental breakfast in the morning. It was at the very center of Oia.Stunning view on the volcanic island with a cosy outdoor jacuzzi.
We had a very lovely stay and we will be back next year!
