Nice hotel with the nice staffPosted Sep 28, 2013
Pros: Staff --Margarita was the best help for us and speak perfect English. Hotel is very clean. Swimming pool very nice as well.
Cons: It was excelent stay nothing to improve
Location: It is 15 min walk from Perisa and 10 min walk from beach. 5 min to Bus station to get to Fira and from Fira to Oia. More relax then other towns.
Our stay in the hotel started with meeting Margarita on the ariport. For the first night we were thinking hotel is far away from everywhere. We were suprise to find out that that was not true. Hotel is 10 min walk to beach. Beach is black volcanic. In the hotel we had everything you need to create your meal if you like to of course. They are many restaurants not to far away from hotel. Beside hotel is bus stop and easy access to different other places on island.

Felt like a family homePosted Sep 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
I have never felt so welcome and looked after as I did at this hotel. The staff went out of their way to make me feel welcome and give good advice about the island and activities. The pool area is fun and relaxing with great views of the mountain and the self contained nature of the room was enhanced by two large supermarkets close by. It was an excellent hassle free stay.

Wonderful experience!Posted Sep 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
The Margarenia Studios was a wonderful experience! We stayed at the Margarenia with our family during the power outage, and the owners went beyond the call of duty to ensure our comfort. We highly recommend the Margarenia! Santorini was fabulous!

Absolutely amazingPosted Aug 19, 2013
Pros: The staff and owners, and the late night at the pool
Cons: There aren't any
Location: Quiet just outside of the main drag. 10 min walk to the beach. 20 min walk to the other side of town
The true measure of a person is not how they act when all is well but how they respond when there is a crisis. Without any power on the island Margarenia, Margareta, and George made our stay one of the best vacations we have ever had. From the friendly conversations to the late night beers as friends. They bend over backward to ensure every detail is met with open friendly arms. The hotel is amazing with stunning views the food is spectacular and I would recommend this hotel to everyone. Thank you for making our vacation

Great welcomePosted Jun 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
Hotel collected us from airport which was great- had a lovely chat with Margerita on way to hotel telling us about the local area, felt very welcoming.Room was lovely with a big balcony looking across the sea,i am assuming this was one of the better rooms as it was a cave style.Room very clean with a big bed - room a good size but due to the cave style meant that if you were very tall you need to be careful but we thought it was lovely., bathroom usual greek style and clean, not overly spacious but fine for us. Room was self catering with a kettle, plates/bowls etc and a bonus of washing up liq and tea towel. ROoms cleaned every day! Airconditioning and safety deposit box in room - all free which is great ! Hotel had a lovely pool, empty most days only one day were all the beds taken and then there were more without umbrellas you could use. THere is a pool bar, but its not manned and you have to find margerita at reception, which didnt bother us too much. There is not food on site available, but there is a supermarket close by and a balery around 5 min walk, but its 24hrs so you can pick up your bread/vcakes on way home! The apartments are a little further out from the town and it takes around 15 minutes to get the the bars etc, beach is around 15-20 min walk away,Bus stop right by the hotel made it good to go and visit FIra and Oia by bus. Had a really lovely time at the margerenia studios and wouldnt hesitate to recommend to anyone else

The Best in PerissaPosted Jun 30, 2011
The only negative thing I could muster up about this hotel is that it is a whole 5-10 min walk from the beach. This hotel offers very nice rooms, the pool is great and the staff are extremely helpful and accomodating. We needed to stay about 5 hours past our check out time to make a ferry and they allowed us to stay for free and even arranged for our transfer. Across the street you can rent a car, quad or moped. Also in close vicinity is a market and internet cafe. For what I have seen in the Perissa Beach area, I would have to say that this is one of the better hotels to stay at for its cost and comfortability alone.

Lovely findPosted Jun 22, 2011 on Hotels.com
We were delighted with our stay. We were on our honeymoon and had been staying at a 5 star hotel prior to this 3 star - and we were not disappointed (as we expected to feel). The rooms were big and we had 3 balconies - wow - obviously not as plush as a 5 star but had a great pool and a great price - we might have stayed here the whole time rather than our 5 star - price aside...... It's a walk to the restaurants and beach but you're away from all the busy seafront so I think that's better - pretty much everyone uses quads on the island so what's a 5 minute quad ride to the beach??? Or a 15 minute walk.... Definitely recommend - lovely pool - margaret the manager is lovely - and knows a lot of good places to go. I'd avoid the hire place that's nearby on the main road - we had a really poor quad from them that was hot on the legs, backfired and was slow to the point of dying. There's plenty of options down the road - recommend you try the quad out before commiting to hire. Santorini was wonderful - only gripe being the millionaire taxi drivers who charge the earth for a 5 or 10 minute drive. I'm in the wrong job!!
