Smaragdi hotel offers everything that you need for an amazing stay in Santorini. It is in a wonderful location right on the best beach in Santorini. The hotel is immaculately clean, well-maintained, comfortable and so peaceful with a lovely pool area. Maria and her team are so warm and friendly that you feel part of the family. I would not hesitate to stay at Smaragdi again. The only slight downside are the pool chairs as they are not the most comfortable and also the breakfast is lacking. However, you are not obliged to have breakfast at the hotel and there are numerous choices along the beach.
