Trying to find true cave house experience in Santorini

Going to Santorini mid-May, looking for cave room, pics of Aura Cave Hotel in Fira look fantastic, but so far away from Caldera and sea view. Currently booked at Alexander Suites in Oia, but I can't get a commitment that we will get a "cave room" from them when I correspond with them by chat through Booking.com. Can anyone recommend something similar to Aura Cave Hotel, but closer to caldera view. Thank you, this forum has been an invaluable resource.

Have you stayed in a cave room before?
We found ours damp and claustrophobic and have avoided them ever since.

I stayed at Dana Villas in Fira. I believe they are all cave rooms with great views of the caldera. I was there in February, and my room was quite cozy.

Try https://www.vallasapartments.com. We have stayed there many times. You have a view of the Caldera and shopping for wine, food, and fresh nuts are nearby. Parking lot is 75 yards from lodging. If you do not get the cave room ask for top floor room near the jacuzzi. George is very hospitable and always offered a welcome drink upon arrival.
Best view of the Caldera with gorgeous sunset views.

Happy travels

Lithies Traditional Homes in Firostefani is fabulous. We stayed in their "Home Eros" and it went beyond our expectations. In addition to a beautiful cave home, you will receive five star service from Maria and Sony. Enjoying a glass of their wine at sunset while sitting on our patio was magical. Truly a memorable experience, and we would return in a heartbeat! .https://www.lithies.com/
