“will come back again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

We were there for a week and enjoyed our stay so much. The pool is so nice and clean and there is nobody sharing with us while we stayed there. I like the landscaping and flowers they have at the property. Room is nice and big. Staff is friendly and provides us lots of tips to explore Santorini! We love to come back one day for a longer stay!

This is really a nice hotel that has a lot to offer. Staff is so nice and friendly. The pool area is gorgeous. The rooms are very comfortable and well furnished . Smaragdi is simply lovely! We would recommend it and we are looking forward to a return trip soon .

We picked Smaragdi based on tripadvisor reviews and we spent a very pleasant week exploring the beauty of Santorini. Hotel’s driver picked us from the airport (at no extra cost, we have sent arrival details by e mail). Maria and her staff did everything they could, to ensure that we had wonderful time in Santorini. They are genuinely warm and gracious.
After our check in, they gave us a thorough introduction to the highlights of the island.
The room was beautiful, clean and tastefully decorated. The breakfast was delicious.
We highly recommend Smaragdi and would love to go back.

We had a superb 7 days holliday in Smaragdi. We think this hotel has a special personality, which is the result of a family run business. Rooms are nice, clean and comfortable. Staff is professional, friendly and very helpful. They treats you extremely well, to make sure your stay is memorable. There's an outdoor pool and jacuzzi (free use). The sunbathing area around the pool has a nice atmosphere. The south gate leads to the beach which is a few steps away (easily accessible, extremely clean water). They provide you beach towels on request. We will would definitely return soon.

We stayed in Smaragdi for 1 week in late July and it was fantastic. After our free pickup from the airport (email them to book it), we were brought to the hotel. Maria welcome us in the reception with a big smile and in a few minutes we were shown to our lovely room.
This hotel is extremely well located: 1 mins walk to the best beach in Santorini, 3 mins walk to plenty of good and reasonably priced restaurants (Kouzina,Ntomantini, Charlina etc), 5 mins walk to the best beach bars in Santorini (Wet stories, Chilly, Tranquillo etc). There are nearby places for shopping: a mini-market (3 mins walk) and 2 supermarkets (10 mins walk, “Big” supermarket has free transfer shuttle to the hotel).
A car is ideal for traveling around the small island: cheap car rental, small distances, quiet and easy to drive roads. We rented a car for 2 days and used the public bus one time also. It was very easy to explore all Santorini’s sightseeing. All excursions offer free transfer from/to the hotel. We highly recommend the Catamaran cruise excursion, we loved it!
Maria and her staff are so helpful, friendly and kind. They helped us with all our planning activities in such a friendly way!
Maria welcomes each guest personally. The day of our arrival she gave us a wonderful introduction for Santorini, full of sincere recommendations for the island. She is always available to help you and sort out fast any of your requests or small problems.
The setting of the hotel is adorable: beautiful pool, nice pool area, plenty of sunbeds, great pool bar, nice bungalow-style buildings and well maintained gardens and surrounds.
There are wifi access points all over the hotel, (about 10), and we had good signal and fast connection in all areas including our room.
We are so glad we stayed in Smaragdi and will absolutely be back!

We enjoyed our stay at Smaragdi very much. This is a great hotel very near to the black beach. Service was excellent and friendly. Food at the breakfast was plentiful and so good! Rooms are charming. We have tried 2 different rooms as we have booked for 4 nights and we stayed 9. We will return!

Room Tip: great variety of rooms

My wife and I stayed here for a week in August 2013. This was now our 3rd time back at the Smaragdi and once again we loved it. The rooms seem to have had an overhaul since our last visit and we found the improvments to be excellent.
Once again, Maria and all her staff were outstanding and helpfull. the room was spotlessly clean and we even had fresh flowers put in the room mid week.
the Hotel is a very short walking distance to the beach and all the resturants in Parissa.
I am very much looking forward to our next visit
