This was our second year to visit Emerald and I'm hoping it won't be our last! If you are looking for a relaxing holiday with superb views, good accommodation, lovely pool, welcoming hosts and a wonderful restaurant you will not be disappointed.

We stayed in a villa over the road from the Hotel Emerald and so decided to go for dinner on our second night, we loved it so much we returned again for our last evening. The food is absolutely stunning, a modern take on Cretan cuisine with some Asian twists, the waiter was exceptional, some of the best service we... More

We arrived late at 1230am as our flight was delayed but Esmeralda had kindly waited up for us and took us to our room where the towels had been beautifully arranged on our beds and the windows were opened to show us the stunning view. Our room was ideal for our family of four and the views from both windows... More

I love this little place. It's set on the clifftops overlooking Almerida and is perfect for an evening meal to watch the sun set over the bay, or to grab a refreshing glass of white wine over lunch. There's always a nice breeze. The service is amazing and the food is stunning. Can't wait to go back!

We had a wonderful 5 nights at the Emerald Hotel Appartments. The creeper-covered Appartments are simple but comfortable, the swimming pool and surrounding terrace is well maintained, and the outdoor restaurant is excellent with fabulous views. Simple breakfasts are served in the morning, but in the evenings the restaurant serves superb Graeco-Japanese fusion dishes - we ate there 3 out... More

There are some secrets in life that are so great that you don't want to share them with anyone, but just keep them to yourself. At the same time you want other people to know them, because they make the world a better place. EMERALD HOTEL in the island of Crete is one of those! EMERALD is a family-run hotel... More

We arrived at Emerald Hotel as reccomended by friends. Reasonably priced for the rooms which are quite basic. The view however is fantastic and the restaurant is even better than the view. We spent three lovely days at the Emerald and went for nice walks during the day to make room for the evenings dining experiences.

The Hotel Emerald is such a delight that I hesitate to write about it for fear that it will become difficult to make a booking! The management is so gracious and thoughtful that making our complicated arrangements was easy. The room we stayed in met our every need: quiet, spacious, airy and with beautiful views from both the bedroom and... More

A beautiful location hidden away at the end of the village, with magnificent views. The food is Greek with a twist, very good quality and beautifully cooked. The wine list was a nice surprise, expensive, (ours was 34 euros a bottle) but wonderful wine and we savoured every mouthful. The service was very good, nothing was too much trouble. We... More
