Eaten Alive By Insects

So sad. We expected great things from Katikies but it was not to be. After a 9 day stay we had about 400 insect bites between the two of us. We stayed in Suite 24 at 890 EUs per night. The hotel did eventually move us to a very substandard room. We were offered a one night refund but our entire stay here was ruined. Katikies did provide a doctor at their expense to investigate the problem which was confirmed to be insect bites. The insects definitely came from the mattress in the room. If interested I would gladly send all correspondance with the hotel together with the photographs that we took of ourselves showing the number of insect bites we received. SHOCKING AND HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE @ 890 EUs per night. If you are savy travelers and not just a young honeymoon couple that hasn't been anywhere in their lives don't stay here. There must be something better in Santorini.
A beautiful hotel, but luxury is far away ...

Mentioned as of one top hotels in Santorini, but it seems that luxury is a strange word there. Is a very beautiful hotel, but not a deluxe one.

Top Local Tips for Santorini

see everything rent a little smart car or scooter and see the whole of SantoriniGo spend time real time with the locals near the Oia area. We had many great conversations with some people who have lived there life long. Be aware that this is really not a good place for children (nothing for them to do) and most people want to enjoy the quiet, and peace that defines Santorini. Have coffee or OZO every chance you get. Travel into thira and chose any eatery that looks clean and where the staff will talk to you. Sea food is your best bet! Take an adveture out to the light house. drink bottled water (if you are American especially....we were a bit bothered by the water if you know what I mean..tummy!) take in every sunset!

Getting down Oia Here's a tip for visiting the fishing and dock area in Oia. It's located at the bottom of quite a set of stairs. Walking up them can seem don't. The walk down to the docks is very nice and there is stuff to see. The restaurants at the bottom are worth the trip...then take a cab back up! Easy on the legs after a nice bottle or Retsina.

Paradise Its a beautiful place, with a unique sunset...
