My mother and I stayed at Captain John's for 4 nights in mid September as part of a mother/daughter trip and both of us would highly recommend staying here. Oia itself is one of the most beautiful places I've visited...perched up on a cliff, looking down at blue water and white houses, you really do feel like you're in Heaven....

Firstly, besides the wonderful view, the service here was amazing! Without us asking, Christina called our airport shuttle and gave them directions to the hotel to make sure they didn't get lost (there are a bunch of hotels on the cliff so it's a little hard sometimes figuring out which road is actually the best place to drop off/pick up)....

We had a very relaxing and trouble free stay at Captain John's (CJ's). Starting with the immediate and clear communication offering to arrange for an airport pickup and ending with the very smooth check out, the whole experience made us felt appreciated and well taken care of. Oia, where the hotel is situated, is very popular with tourists because of...

Couldn't really get a better spot. We stayed here for the final two nights of our honeymoon trip around the Cyclades, and it is spectacular. After the quiet of the smaller islands Oia is busy, bustling, brash and expensive. But the view over the caldera is like nothing else I have ever seen - an otherworldly, beautiful, dramatic vista that...

Great location, amazing view of the sunset. Although the hotel does not have a pool but it has a jacouzi overlooking the sea and the sunset view of santorini. The service is amazing as well. I highly recommend this hotel for a stay in Oia. The hotel is 10-15 mns walk from the center.

Although only minutes away from markets, restaurants, and shops, the property feels secluded and isolated from the Oia tourist crowd Proximity to a somewhat hidden parking lot (50-75 meters away) is also a big plus if you have rental car or luggages to haul. The main feature is the stunning view of the caldera. The room for our group of...

What can be better than a private deck overlooking the gorgeous Santorini caldera and offering priceless views of the famous sunset of Oia? We stayed in the upper apartment at Captain John and loved spending time on the deck. Our apartment was spacious and very comfortable with a lovely kitchen. I felt that the location, about a 10 minute walk...

The Good- the view is absolutely breathtaking!! You are at nearly the highest point in Oia overlooking the calderas (volcanoes) and the cathedrals. The room opens out to a little balcony (not private as you can see your neighbors) that includes a table and two chairs and folding beach chairs if you wish to lay down. Kristina the attendant is...

I like the place for the price and the view I would stay here again if I came back and the staff was very nice as well. This cant be beat, I stayed in the room right under the office which had a full kitchen for us to cook breakfest.

“There are 3 lower rooms and 1 "superior" room. I would recommend to take a lower room. Also you can ask for the room next to the Whirlpool, so not so many people walk past your room to get to their room.”
