“There are so many goods points”
Reviewed 1 October 2009

Very cosy friendly family owned hotel. Family with a warm and jolly heart. Very welcome people and it was end of season but Smaragdi hotel was fully occupied, a lot of customers come back again and recommend to others. It's worth it. We had suite, it's big, cosy, great view to the sea and to the mountains. Everydays cleaning. Picking from the harber! by a good car with good service. We had compared to others hotels in this area and it was the best choice. excursion trips and car renting - well done. Reliable and professional. Coming from Athens, there words/stars are just words/stars, in Smaragdi things were functioning. we were amused, because they keep their promises.
Location is good. Just behind the first line, but 2 mins walk to the beach. In Santorini only in this part is good beach, vulcanic source. small soft red stones with healing effect. Pury clear sea. Still many quests prefered to stay near hotel swimming pool plus outside spa, it's nice view to enjoy relaxing. Calm music. It's worth to rent a car and to drive all around the island. It's worth to taste small village restaurants. Foods is so different compared to touristic places. We would like to come again to Santorini and to stay in Smaragdi.

During our stay the service, as always, was first class! Always accommodating to every need and very friendly. Rooms were cleaned every day and it was a pleasure to stay there, nothing was too much trouble. The hotel, for me, is set in a perfect position, central but just off the beaten track, just how I like it. Plenty to do, never bored! I liked the fact that cars and excursions could be organised from the hotel and the service was very efficient. Very difficult for me to say anything negative about Smaragdi, its my heaven!!

Basically, this hotel has everything i wanted for my days at santorini: close to the beach (actually 3 mints walking) great swimming pool, quite, great service, very clean and charming. The access to the main city of thira is reasonable. They provided transfer from the port to the hotel even though our ferry was 1 hour late! Also i got a huge problem with a ferry booking and they helped me in everything they could from the very first moment.
The warmth of their welcome is the best I've ever received and absolutely I will go back (hopefully soon). George and Maria, thanks for making the best of my holidays at Santorini!

We knew we found a special hotel when we arrived at 3:00 AM and George welcomed us with a drink! He and the other staff were friendly, bursting with recommendations and treat the guests like family. It’s clear that they take pride in their hotel and island. We booked the Smaragdi because it’s a 5-10 minute walk to the black sand beach, Perissa. But we just as much enjoyed the infinity pool and the surroundings- lava rock walls, indigenous trees and flowers climbing the buildings. The full service bar and restaurant was delicious for any meal around the pool and great for socializing with the other guests. Our rooms were comfortable and clean, and we appreciated the refrigerator. We’ll be returning time and again!

You relax here from minute one - they even pick you up from the airport. The family are so kind, friendly & helpful - nothing is too much trouble. Thats not the only reason we keep coming back to stay.
Our regular room with its lovely balcony feels like home, cleaned every other day with lovely fresh sheets & towels from their own laundry.
The food is great with 'specials' every night & a good regular menu too. But if you just fancy egg & chips its no trouble!
The pool is beautiful to look at & lovely to swim in. The owners are very particular about the quality of the water & its tested every day. Do try the jacuzzi its so invigorating.
The gardens are rich in blooms as they love their garden, watering & deadheading regularly.
You can book hire cars & taxis at reception. The hire car comes delivered to the hotel & all is very straightforward & reliable.
So close to the beach & tavernas (its a three minute stroll to the nearest), but quite & peaceful.
