“Great service and best value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

I booked several apartments here during my wedding for my family. We had the best and friendliest service ever. It was kind of a luxury being able to have our own private family breakfast by the pool every day. George and Rita are always in hand if you need advice, he even offered to drive me to my wedding!!
The apartments are big, clean and well maintained. The only down side is that is a bit far from the beach, but hey, rent a car or scooter and it won't be a problem.

Thanks a lot George and Rita. Best of luck!

The place was great and relaxing, all that you expect from a small hotel in Greece. White walls, blue windows, flowers everywhere, nice and clean swimingpool...

The room was quite big, and had a kitchenette and a balcony, so you can prepare breakfast or meals there.

But what really makes the diffrence is Margarita, the owner and her cousin, Margarita. they are very nice and helpful.

Is around 2 km from the beach, but is not a problem because in Santorini, anyway, you will take the car or moto for anything.

since the very first moment you arrive in margarenia studios you feel happy.
george and margarita are a constant bless, their wellcoming, their easygoing attitude, smile and constant care make you feel so confy.
the place is quiet and nice, plenty of flowers.
you feel the care of someone that love their space.
the swimming pool is also wonderful and the studios are spacious, clean and well kept.
you don´t have any spectacular views but really it is not that necessary unless you are on a honeymoon and want a romantic atnosphere. and the prize is so worth it. You won´t pay the cost of the views ( hotels in santorini are very expensive) but all the island is so beautiful, that for us it was not a request.
Margarenia is a wonderful choise in santorini.
I organize special trips for small groups, and all my clients agreed on how special and nice the hotel was.
we are really happy and thank Margarita,george and all their staff for making our stay marvalleous.
see you really soon

We had a double room as our ten year- old son stayed free of charge for extra bed. Very spacious room, very clean (towels were changed daily).
The swimming- pool was perfect, a place to relax and swim, we used it every day as the weather was very windy. Good located, near mini market, travel agency and bus station. Perissa beach is about 1km away. Free Wi-Fi and parking.
Mrs Margarita was very hospitable, helpfull and polite.
Value for money, we would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to visit Santorini.

Margarenia Studios is perfect. We had an absolutely fabulous stay here. The rooms are bright, clean and wonderfully decorated in coloured themes. The owners are wonderfully helpful and friendly. They obviously take great pride in their house and their service.

The rooms are fitted out with the standard facilities found around a lot of the places we have stayed on the islands. It could be made a little better perhaps with the addition of a toaster, and kettle. Note: nowhere we stayed on this trip included these items!

The Studios are located in between Perissa and Perivolos. The beach is quite a walk, but if your spending the day there, it is manageable. The local bakery is superb and there is a number of large supermarkets nearby.

The pool area is amazing. Always a sun bed available, the pool is deep and refreshing with gorgeous views of the mountain range. We would definitely recommend hiring a car from the ferry shop at the end of the street and doing a winery tour!!

Margaret the hotel owner is absolutely lovely and such a friendly lady. She always had a smile for us.

We were a honeymoon couple staying in the four person masionette (the green rooms in the pics) as we are greedy and like our space. The masionette has two levels and is very clean and pleasant. There is a small kitchenette with a fridge, hob and sink (no oven or grill), a dining area with four chairs and two single beds downstairs and a double upstairs. It has 2 balconies downstairs and a large terrace leading off from the double room upstairs!

The pool is just lovely. Very large with a shallow and deep end and the water very warm. Plenty of sunbeds to use too and parasols, tables for your drinks etc.

Plenty of parking for your quad or car.

Previus to this e sstaayed 10 nights in Carpe Diem in Pygros. We actually enjoyed our stay here more.

10 minutes walk form the 24 hour bakery. Yum.

About a 20-25 minute walk to Perissa beach front. But once we had our quad this wasn't an issue. My husbaand enjoyed the walk but I'm not a fan of walking so hence the quad. There are tons of retuarants on the beach front and a cool internet cafe/bar where internet is free if you buy a drink. They even give you a laptop so you can browse on the sofa.

The Santorini people are very friendly. It's a great honeymoon island in that it is relaxing, peaceful and a place where you can enjoy each other's company aaway from the world. Lots of little coves and beaches to be found whilst riding around the island on the quad.

Lots of people seem to favour Thira aand Oia. To us Thira was too hectic (we live in London, we wen't looking for hectic) so we only went there once to pick up the quad. Oia is overrated in our opinion - very cute but we spent two ours there and felt we had seen enough. For the sunet - try going to the lighthouse which is much quieter and with a good view.

You need either a car or a quad to get around. Really, you could stay anywhere on the island because no-where is very far to drive. You can do one side of the island to the other in 50 minutes. If you want to save money don't stay in Thira or Oia - it's so easy to get to them that there's very little point to be honest.

One final important thing - if you have diffculty walking then don't go to Santorini. There are hills everywhere, uneven streets and hardly any pavements. Oh, and take a torch, you may need it at night as not all the streets are suffciently lit. But it's a safe place, even at night, we didn't feel nervous anywhere we went.
