Having visited Smaragdi, I am relieved that I trusted my fellow reviewers. The hotel itself is über-cute with its awesome swimming pool and room doors facing onto an elaborate network of patios. My room was beautifully furnished, comfortable and spacious. Maria and her staff are warm, welcoming and full of island knowledge they are willing to share. If you have any doubts about your stay in Santorini, they will fill in all the blanks. The hotel is located a stone's throw from a stunning volcanic beach. There are bus stops, tavernas, bars and shops almost on your doorstep.

If you're the kind of person who feeds off good vibes, you will find plenty of them here. If you're reading this, Maria or Irini, thank you guys for looking after me! x

Room Tip: Room 12 is gorgeous and has a private balcony :)

The rates are low compared to the extra personal service you get from this family.
If I were to best describe them - They completely get it! They are available and willing to research any of your wishes. We have arrived with a faint idea of what we want to do and they have filled in the blanks on when and how to do it.

The rooms are uber clean and staff all willing to help. Just book it! Private, quiet and close to restaurants 10-15 min walk for groceries with free return trip.

Me and my girlfriend stayed there last year on July, everything was just perfect! As we booked a budget room, it was a bit small, but with all the facilities we may need.
Maria and their staff are the nicest people I've ever met in Greece!

Our stay at Smaragdi has been wonderful. We stayed there for 6 nights and loved every single moment of our stay. The location is both nice and convenient as it is really close to the black sand beach, many restaurants and a mini market. The family who owns the place was so warm and welcoming. We got a Deluxe Studio which was lovely and found it to be great value, as everything was brand new after their last renovation. Our room was serviced every day. Free wifi is available throughout the hotel. Buffet breakfast was very yummy and served in the pool area. We highly recommend this place.

We had the pleasure of spending 4 days at Smaragdi for our honeymoon. It was the best part of our trip! We could have stayed there an entire week.  Our room, honeymoon suite, was spacious and luxurious. It had comfortable king size bed, nice big bathroom, private Jacuzzi and big balcony. The staff could not have been nicer. Maria was very attentive and most helpful. The beach location is perfect and just a pleasant walk to many restaurants.  We loved the romantic catamaran cruise. Santorini is a stunning island and Smaragdi just the right choice to stay.  We will definitely be back!

We staid there for a few days.
The room had been recently refurbished. It was very comfortable, and better than anything I have seen for the same price.
The welcome was great, and the host (can't remember her name) gave us details about activities to do in Santorini.

The hotel is 10/15 minutes walk from the more touristy town. I really enjoyed that: it was more quiet and felt less touristy.
There is a very little supermarket 5 minutes walk from there where they have quite good bread we would buy for breakfeast.
We haven't tried their restaurant/bar.

This was my first trip to Greece and my only stop would be Santorini. My travel companion bailed on me at the last minute so I was on a solo adventure. I arrived starving after the kitchen was closed for the day but no problem! Maria and her front desk team were quick to order food delivery from the neighborhood "The Best". Truly AMAZING first meal, wow!!
Maria and her team are lovely, warm people and are very happy to help you organize any day trips or recommend their top "must dos". The sunset dinner cruise and swim in the sea is AWESOME! do it.
