Great Inn in in a Great Location!
My husband and I stayed two nights in two different rooms (we decided to come a day early and the room we had booked for the following night was occupied), and both were spotlessly clean, spacious, comfortable and absolutely charming! The room we stayed in the first night had its own courtyard entrance and provided great privacy, our second night room had a lovely terrace with great views of the sweet little church across the lane and the sea in the distance. We especially appreciated the complimentary breakfast ready to go in the rooms' refrigerators, which meant that we could rise and eat them whenever we felt like it. Heliophos' owner, Sophia, is lovely and and has created a beautiful atmosphere. And I can't say enough about Finikia itself --- it's only a fifteen minute walk to Oia, but a world away. Oia has more spectacular views, but it's also super-overcrowded with tourists and feels somewhat unreal like Disneyland, whereas Finikia is still an authentic Greek village. My advice would be to walk into Oia for the views, but stay at Heliophos Boutique Caves in Finikia for a much more pleasant and genuine overall experience.

4/10 Fair

Got there late, was dark, the property lady got me an airport transfer, driver asked for too much$50 when we paid $30 same distance to airport on the way back, didn't tell me that i have to pay cash. Driver dropped us off away from the place, in dark we didn't know where to go. Finally got to the place after calling the person who couldn't speak English very well. The property had no air conditioning, was in the middle of nowhere for what i paid which was a lot. Breakfast was two pieces of bread, a little yogurt and tea; all that you have to make so we ate out for both days we were there. I did have one yogurt the first day, for the second day, they did not refil the yogurt or the tea. Went to tell the person/property manager about it but she was very rude and argued instead of just giving a couple tea bags and a small yogurt. Tried the what they called juice which was watered down nasty drink. No i will never stay here again and I would never recommend this place. Charge too much for a cheap nasty place with rude property manager/owner.

This was the perfect hotel. Everything was wonderful and the area was cute. Love the breakfast in the refrigerator. It felt more like an Airbnb or a bread and breakfast. My only complaint was finding the place. It’s took some efforts and asking many people how to get there.

Ok but could be better
Ok hotel wouldn’t say luxury but definitely budget - good location if you want to stay in Oia without the price. The hotel had a weird smell to it and very dark considering it was a cave hotel however was clean.

Quiet and convenient
This was our first time in Santorini and we had a great experience. The room was clean and looked just like the pictures, the staff were all super friendly and accommodating. We were able to arrange a taxi to pick us up from the airport and and to bring us back when it was time to leave. The hotel is located in a quiet area but still close to some good restaurants and it's an easy walk to Oia.

Charming boutique cave hotel
Beautifully setup boutique cave hotel, very spacious, with bedroom upstairs, living room & bathroom downstairs..outdoor patio table w/chairs..only minor issues were wifi signal is pretty weak, and hot water in shower is limited, but kind of to be expected on an island as small as Santorini..approx 10-15 minute walk into Oia, kind of long if you have large luggage..charming spot with small breakfast included in fridge/pantry, highly recommend overall!

8/10 Very good

Enjoyed our stay!
We enjoyed our stay at Heliophos Boutique Caves! We received excellent service (help with arranging transportation and an early check-in) and enjoyed our stay. It’s in a convenient location (a 10-15 minute walk from Oia), with a nearby mini-mart and a couple restaurants. I didn’t realize when booking that it’s not in Oia proper (it’s in Finikia), but this ended up not being an issue since it’s an easy and enjoyable walk. Keep in mind that the property is a little bit of a walk down from the shared parking lot on some bumpy walkways, so pack accordingly (don’t bring ginormous suitcases like we did!) or just be aware. My one complaint is a lack of space to put our luggage and clothes, as well as toiletries. We were in a smaller room (bedroom upstairs; bathroom, kitchenette, and living room downstairs) and we struggled with finding space to put our things. A simple luggage rack would have helped. Overall, it’s a lovely and unique property and we’re glad we stayed there!
