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

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!
