Lava Suites and Lounge

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We asked for a room with a view, even paid to upgrade to a two bedroom suite and there was no view from the room, you needed to sit in the common areas for a view. The room was more like a cold dark cave, Wifi never worked, bathroom was from the dark ages, no shower, tub with a handheld spray. Extra cot that was provided reminded me of Girl Scout camp. The lounge is only open for breakfast, no all day bar and food service. With that being said the breakfast was very good and the staff very friendly and tried to please however they have no authority to make decisions, I left feeling sorry for is offsite and we're not available to address facility issues. I would not recommend too many better places to stay.

Amazing little hotel, with beautiful rooms, and the absolute best views of the caldera in all of Fira. The service is spectacular, the people are so nice and helpful. They even gave us a cell phone to call them anytime in case we needed help. Couldn't ask for anymore on our honeymoon!

You will LOVE this place!!! The staff and rooms are phenomenal! It is close to all things happening in Fira, but far enough away to be quiet enough at night to sleep. The pool and the sauna must be experienced. Take a walk towards Oia and buy some volcanic earrings along the way.

The staff at Lava was wonderful...need to say that again...wonderful! The location and breakfast was delightful! However we were very disappointed in our room as bedding damp, bathroom shower outdated and no wifi in our room. Not what we expected when we booked our room.

The hotel is lovely and in a lovely position. Stunning views, kind staff, near to everything but also a bit removed so quieter (or so we thought). We booked the master suite (the most expensive one, to clarify). Huge stunning terrace overlooking the Caldera and Fira with a lovely private warm hot tub. Beautiful light room and comfortable big bed. But... WiFi worked only one day on 5, there is no shadow available on the terrace to enjoy the view during the day without dying of heat, the other commonal hot tub is just outside the room and so is the swimming pool downstairs and the bar next to the room. Let's say that sleeping is a Russian roulette. You might sleep or just lay in bed awake with people shouting in the hot tub until 2 in the night (like now). It just feels like something that could be amazing that I will never book again.

Just returned from 5 nights at Lava Suites and can confidently say it is the finest accommodation I have I ever stayed in. We booked the master suite which has a very comfortable room, incredible views of The Caldera and surrounding area and an amazing hot to enjoy it from. I cannot recommend highly enough! Also the staff, Stavroula and Elias are so helpful for whatever you need. They give you a phone incase of any emergencies or questions and are so accommodating. The breakfast was also great, a selection of items to cater for all tastes. It's also in a great location, close enough to Fira to enjoy, but far enough away to be so quiet and nobody overlooks you. Honestly, if you're considering this place for a bit of luxury and a treat, book the master suite. So so good :)

We had a great time in Lava Suites & Lounge, we've enjoyed every minute from the amazing view of the hotel - just in front of us we could see the iconic church of Fira - the most famous picture of Santorini. it was magical sitting in the jacuzzi during sunset and see all this beauty so close to us, felt like you're in a dream. The crew was super friendly, kind and helpful, especially Christian who was just like a friend to us - thank you so much dear Christian! :) See you next time in Santorini guys!

The staff was nice and attentive. The on site manager met us when we arrived and gave us a tour of our suite - which had candles burning in the room which was a nice touch. The guy who served the delicious breakfast was a pleasure to talk to... and the cleaning staff was stealth! Our room was nicely cleaned while at breakfast and we never saw them! We were given a cell phone in case we needed to contact the staff after hours. The suite we had was huge and looks like a cave inside. Wifi not so good in the rooms, but that is due to the cave-like design and building materials. Wifi is good on the terrace and by the pool which offer awesome views of the caldera, so that makes it a pleasure to be outside. Location is great - walking distance to the shops and restaurants. Rooms were kind of pricey, but all hotels in Santorini are pricey. I will stay here again the next time I visit Santorini.

We arrived late our first night and they were accommodating to us and arranged for a transfer and had some who could carry our bags. Hotel is really beautiful and looks like a cave inside. Wifi is not so great in rooms but we didn't spend a whole lot of time there so it was OK. Great location.. Walking distance to shops, restaurants, bars etc. Staff was excellent and helped arrange everything we needed. I highly recommend.

From the moment that you walk down those steps and look at the amazing view, it takes your breath away. It was enough distance away to avoid the crowded restaurants and shops, but a quick walk to where ever you needed to be. I wish I could remember the female's receptionist name, but she was very accommodating and knowledgeable. We booked a sunset catamaran cruise and it was the highlight of our trip with her assistance. Breakfast was very fresh and amazing as you watched the view of the cliffs and cruise ships docking... The rooms were very unique and authentic that you felt like you were "in" Greece. AC worked wonderfully as it was scorching outside. Only complaint was the plumbing but I think everywhere in Greece had drainage problems. Other than that, no complaints! Amazing view from the roof/balcony view!
