Advised this was a hidden gem ,we found its wonderful setting for Dinner stunning! With a romantic setting overlooking the Souda Bay and a friendly welcome we were impressed by the service and the food was original and very tasty. This will be our special place in future

The Emerald Hotel is an outstanding location to enjoy the local life of Plaka, near Almyrida, Crete. We stayed here 12 years ago and came back in 2014. A lot has changed, particularly the restaurant, which is now open to non-residents. You won't be disappointed. The food and wine are of the highest quality and and the setting just amazing.... More

We recently stayed near Plaka where we found a number of very good tavernas, but one day someone at a nearby winery mentioned the Emerald restaurant and we decided to venture in to give it a go. Wow, what a good decision that was! Down an uneven, steep track you suddenly come across the most picture-postcard terrace overlooking the bay,... More

We were in need of some serious respite from busy working lives and thank goodness for tripadvisor as we found Emerald Hotel on it. If you are visiting the area this is the place to be. It's on the brink of becoming a boutique hotel without an air of pretension. The apartment was quiet, spacious, simple and clean with great... More

Small apartment hotel with great views of the bay and sunset. Lovely pool area surrounded by pretty gardens. Apartments spacious and adequately furnished. Plaka village with places to eat is 5 minutes up the hill but the attached restaurant is way too good for eating anywhere else!

The restaurant was lovely and had a beautiful view over the sea, and the staff were very nice. It was also beside a... More

Our house overlooks Emerald, and for 10 years we have only popped in for the odd evening drink.....until last Sunday. We had lunch there, wow, it was great, I had lamb, not something I would normally eat. Lamb has never tasted so good. My husband had belly pork and that too tasted heavenly. Impressed and I hadn't even thought about... More

We chose this hotel for a four-night stay because it was competitively priced, looked gorgeous and the view - from the rooms and pool area is nothing short of sensational. Also, there's a fabulous restaurant attached, with an enchanting and romantic terrace area overlooking Almyrida and Souda Bay. From the moment we walked into the grounds, at night, we knew... More

Don't miss the culinary creations from Christos which made our holiday. We had the almost impossible mix of normal, piscatarian and vegetarian but the challenge was overcome easily and with a shy smile. Very imaginative with fusion influences from all over the globe topped by the most awesome 5 layer birthday cake. Fantastic support team from Stella and Katriana; always... More

This is a beautiful location on the cliff above Almirida in the village of Plaka. Our room was very adequate, only gripes were water could be a bit hotter and maybe time to refresh the decor/ bathroom- having said that the pool is lovely- clean , plenty of room for guests, with a nice intimate feel. The view from our... More
