The Captain John Traditional Houses is definitely one of the most beautiful places I have stayed in. Of all the places in Greece, coming to Santorini was the trip that I highly anticipated because of the view and after having stayed, photos do not do it justice. My family and I chose to stay in the suite house which is Captain John's largest room with the highest view. The view is of the Aegean Sea, the volcano, the town of Oia, and the cliffs of Santorini. It is also a lovely and peaceful location to watch the sunset instead of heading toward the cliff of Oia where everyone crowds around. The rooms are cleaned and towels are changed daily. They do not really have room service or complimentary breakfast because the staff is not always around. In Oia, there are traditional houses instead of hotels which may explain why there is no room service. However, the houses come with everything you need from a complete kitchen with a few complimentary snacks and beverages to a spacious living room where you can relax and socialize. There is a table outside the house where you can sit, enjoy the view, and have breakfast. Taking a dip in their jacuzzi was probably one of the most memorable experiences I have because it seemed like I was right on the edge of the cliff with the view in front of me. The jacuzzi is shared with the other guests staying in the houses but you will always find a time when no one is there and you can have it all to yourself. I would definitely come back here if I plan to visit Santorini again in the future
