“Paradise....on Earth!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

Fantastic place for an un-forgettable holiday....i am dreaming such holiday since 3 yrs.
Smragdi is a family run hotel, very quiet, 50 mt away of the beach with perfect pool, comfortable accommodation based on each budget, extremely clean, nice terasse where u can have your breakfast, pool bar, computer in the lobby, wifi, huge parking next to hotel gates.Staff is fantastic, they are very kind, helpful, with good information and advises, a great thanks to Maria, George, Mama and Irini...they are night and day your friends and advisers. Before i stayed in Oia at a very expensive hotel where u did not have such facilities....beach next to the hotel and easy access to everywhere. Kids are safe in the garden and there are plenty facilities for them to run and play in safe conditions.

Room Tip: rooms facing the mountain - more quiet.

The hotel has the perfect size and service to feel just like at home. The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. Also the location is perfect, since the beach is in short walking distance. There are rooms of each category available, so it's no problem to find one that fits your personal needs. We were also checking out other hotels in Santorini but in the end figured that Smaragdi offered the best for our money, location and servicewise.You don't need to stay in Fira or Oía and spend three times as much, when you can stay at Smaragdi and still reach other places easily by car. We recommend this family run hotel to anyone who just wants to get away from the everyday stress and relax in a beautiful surrounding.

The 50 meters you have to walk to get to the best Santorini beach are not steep and there's no busy traffic there. Staff is really friendly and helpful. Manager Maria got for us very good discount from a car rental company. There was always free space on the free of charge parking lot in front of the Hotel. They had baby chair and little cute kitten to keep our children more or less calm during breakfast. Breakfast itself was very good. Rooms are clean. Calm. No insects. Easy walk to Perisa. Easy drive (car or bus) to any other part of this beautiful island.

Room Tip: Our triple room on the top (second) floor with see and pool view was excellent. There's no eleva...

THE place to stay in Perivolos/Perissa. Beautiful, well-maintained hotel. Friendly, helpful staff. Wonderful breakfast at a bargain price. There is simply nothing negative to say about the Smaragdi. An easy 4-5 minute walk to the black beach and all it has to offer. The hotel also has close, convenient parking for rental cars, scooters, quads.
The hotel is a great base to explore Santorini from. Drive over to Fira & Oia for the caldera and the crowds. Come back to the Smaragdi to relax and enjoy true Greek hospitality.
I spent 9 nights in September at the Smaragdi and will return next September to relax poolside, walk to the black beach, and feed off of the positive vibes that make the Smaragdi unique.

Room Tip: Do not be alarmed by the affordably priced rooms. All rooms are clean, comfortable, and well-maintai...

Visited Smaragdi from 24/09 - 08/10 again this year and if possible the service just gets bettter and better. Nothing is too much trouble for Maria or George or their mother and father. When Eden was created I think the pool area and gardens here were the inspiration!

Looking for a honeymoon place, we found great reviews about Smaragdi, but didn't believe everything was so great, until we got there...it's the PERFECT PLACE to check in, if you're looking for a nice and quiet place to spend your vacation to. We've checked in on the 25th of September and stayed for 10 nights. We had a surprise from the hotel staff, who provided us with a bottle of champagne and fruits, when learning about our honeymoon.
We've booked a Deluxe Studio, near the pool (room 11) and we were really enchanted about it. It has a small kitchen, bathroom, a huge living room- downstairs and the bed with a closet, at the 1st floor. The view from the balcony is very nice, directly to the pool and jacuzzi area.
We have chosen the breakfast option (daily) and it was very very tasting and varied. We have had lunch for 2 days there and it was a pretty good option.
The staff is veryyyy friendly and takes good care of all guests throughout the day. We had a welcome meeting on our first day there with Maria, the owner of the hotel, who presented us all entertainment options during our stay on the island. We chose to visit Oia and Fira, by bus and have taken the catamaran sunset trip, which was great.
In regards to the places where to go eat, the staff recommended a restaurant down on the beach, but we decided to go "explore" some more during our stay and decided that "METEORA Restaurant" was a perfect match for our needs- the staff there speak ALL languages and they have their menus translated in different languages. The food is simply AMAZING and Irene, both owner and waitress is the funniest & joyful woman we've met. They have thematic evenings (BBQ night, wine & cheese tasting night, Greek night with Zorba dancing -which is amazing and funny, as you get the chance to learn how to dance this, we've also smashed plates, greek way). We really recommend this one from all points of view and it's only 10 minutes walk from the hotel, on the beach.
Overall, we consider to have had a perfect honeymoon, having selected Smaragdi and we consider going back within the following years.

Thank you Maria, Irini, Dimitris, Smaragda, George & Irene (Meteora Restaurant) for having made a delightful stay for us!!!

We can completely recommend the Smaragdi Hotel as THE place to stay in Santrorini. Not only are the rooms beautifully decorated but the entire staff is friendly and very helpful. Our hostess Maria was very gracious and offered great assistance on what to visit on the island. Maria was also kind enough to upgrade our accomodation to a deluxe suite on the final day of our visit. What a beautiful suite; what a beautiful island! You cannot go wrong at the Smaragdi.

Room Tip: The Honeymoon suite and deluxe suites both offer beautiful views.
