Which Oia hotel? Esperas, Kimi Villas or Captain John Traditional Houses?

3 adults taking our first trip to Santorini! My husband, 22 year old daughter & I. Based on availability and views, we've narrowed our hotel choice down to these three places. Any help making a decision would be appreciated!

  • Esperas - the Standard House room looks like an uncomfortable sofa option for our daughter, but it is hard to tell from pictures!

  • Captain John Traditional Houses - has told us the living room has both a twin and a sofa, perhaps better for the 3rd person

  • Kima Villas - is this "in town" location not as desirable as the other two?

Thanks Dick. We had taken Chelidonia off our list when one description described it more as a sunrise view, partial caldera. Don't remember the source of that but thought sunrise direction wouldn't be our first choice.

Hoping to figure out how to make this decision soon!

I would second Chelidonia. Have stayed there twice, and hope to again. No sunset views, but still fabulous views of caldera; relatively good price.
Santorini is our favorite travel destination in the world. Have a great time!
