We have been here for some nights for our anniversary. The rooms are really luxury huge with partly traditional old greek furniture which gives them a very nice touch. All is very clean and tidy. The personel, Olga and David are really courteous and always friendly and keeping everything together but we have been missing the last little details to make this place lasting special. The view is just awesome every time again. If you want to get great value with an unbeatable view you must get there.

This place was simply unbelievable with a direct view of the Caldera. Lave Suites is immaculate in every corner. Our hosts David and Olga could not have been more accommodating, knowledgeable and pleasant available morning noon and night! The breakfast served on the patio {included} was simply amazing. Our suite was traditional cave design. Deep marble bathtub. Outdoor hot tub. Restaurants everywhere clubs everywhere. Just a super FUN experience! BOOK LAVA SUITES you will not be disappointed! Promise!

We made a last minute booking for a trip to santorini and although most of the good hotel rooms were occupied we didn't want to compromise on the view (which is, after all, the main reason to visit this expensive island) -so we booked the available honeymoon suite at Lava's. This is actually a studio with a small kitchenette but the important thing is it has this more-than-180 degree sea view westward from its large terrace, which has a nice jacuzzi. Sadly it doesn't have any privacy as there are paths along the cliff on all sides overlooking the terrace. Was it worth the excruciating price? In the end, yes, if you're going to splurge in santorini might as well go the extra step. Lava Suites has a nice location, not sure about the smaller rooms but the honeymoon suite is certainly great. But if you can't climb stairs, do not go here.

We reserved the Master Suite and it was great. Very spacious and clean. An amazing view of the caldera. The terrace was fairly private. The staff was wonderful. Very friendly and helpful. We loved Santorini and our room was a big part of that. The only negative was that I had mistakenly reserved some dates at a different time and when I requested a waiver of the cancellation fee they were not at all considerate of the request. It was my mistake but I would have expected a little consideration given that we were actually guests.

We were a little disappointed when we arrived because on our way to the hotel we saw some amazing properties, and then we were offered a cave like in the Flinstones. It was quite dark and very out of date and was not at all like the pictures we saw on the website. As a big plus for the property was the hosts Olga and David who could not do enough for us, the properties location was excellent.

So I searched online for ages trying to find the perfect place to stay in Fira, and the prices are pretty ‘sporty’, to say the least. Then I found the Lava Suites which are great value (Santorini is expensive however you do it), and I decided to go ahead and book - and to be honest I was expecting it to be average. But it’s far from average, Olga and David who run the place are lovely and so helpful, the rooms are wonderful and the location is perfect. Book this place you’ll love it.

We decided to visit santorini from Mykonos for one night as a group of six. We decided on lava suites as it was a good price and location and so pleased we did the rooms were great it was like being in a cave and the outside space was lovely with a great view and pool and hot tub. It was one of our parties special birthday so got a bottle of wine and fruit on arrival what a nice touch. Breakfast was served outside on veranda or if you preferred in your room . Plenty of choice and really nice. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend staying here it was great .

This hotel is a great find. Olga and David run the hotel each day. They are kind and offer first class Customer Service. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this to anyone who asked about it. In addition to the warm welcome, at the hotel is clean and offers many amenities. We enjoyed a homemade breakfast prepared for us by David with a beautiful view of the Mediterranean each morning!

We stayed here for 5 nights recently and it ticked all the boxes for us. Great location, right on the Calderra. Shops, restaurants and cable car only a hundred metres from the front door. Olga and David were wonderful hosts. Very helpful and friendly. Our room was always spotlessly cleaned and we really enjoyed our breakfast each morning. Lovely large walk in shower. There was a fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, good internet connection and lots more. We had the Cosy Rose suite at the top of the stairs. Nice spacious room with a good quiet air conditioner. The outdoor pool area downstairs was lovely to relax in though I never got to enjoy the pool as the water was a bit too cold for me. However the Jacuzzi on the top level was wonderful. Very soothing after walking around Santorini each day. They even offer a transfer to and from the Airport at a cost of 12 euro per person which is quite reasonable. David will meet your taxi at the drop off point and carry your luggage to and fro for you. I highly recommend this Lava Suites. You can't go wrong.

We recently stayed at Lava Suites. What can I say? Everything about the experience was unbelievably amazing. Before even arriving I had emailed ahead to ask for advice regarding a location for proposal. After long thought I decided to propose on the balcony as we had a private jacuzzi and the best view of the town and volcano. Veronika and Elias were both so hospitable and helped anywhere they could. The service has been the best so far travelling through Greece. We would definitely stay here again if I had the opportunity. Thanks a million!!!
