We first heard of this hotel/restaurant via an email from a friend who lives locally. As we know the area quite well, we just couldn't imagine where it could be. Our friend took us to dinner at the restaurant the other night and we were in shock. The service, the food, the wine and the fantastic cocktails were incredible. You... More

My wife and stayed a few doors away and soon discovered the beautiful vine-covered terrace with wonderful views over the bay and Almarida beach, cooled by sea-breezes even in the hottest days. In the evenings you can dine watching the sun set over the bay. But what will live in our memories longest is the amazing food we had during... More

My husband and I have been visiting this gem of a place for approx. 10 years now and it just gets better and better. This year it has a new management team although you will still see Spiros around and about. Their prices are more expensive now but in fairness they do have a new chef and an extensive menu,...

We arrived at the Emerald Hotel to a warm welcome from the Hotel staff. Our room was lovely, very clean with the most amazing ocean views to Almyrida and the mountains from a lovely balcony where we liked to play backgammon over an ice cold mythos! The room was very spacious and kitchenette was very well equipped. You could easily... More

The staff are extremely friendly and always went out of their way to ensure our comfort and enjoyment. The hotel chef offered a delicious variety of cuisine at bargain prices, and the sommelier helped us select just the right wine for every meal. The apartments were bright, tastefully decorated, and very comfortable. The Emerald Hotel is that special place that... More

The owner of the hotel and the owners of the restaurant make you feel like you are in paradise. The hotel is a hidden gem: amazing location, wonderful, quiet and roomy apartments.

Up the hill so incredible views, beatiful vines dotted across the apartment complex, like a serviced apartment with kitchen facilities and spacious. Great staff! 5 min walk to shops and great restaurants. 20 min walk down the hill to more shops, restaurants and lovely beach.

If you are looking for a low cost, family run and quiet aparthotel that is located in a relaxing location with stunning sea and mountain views this is worth considering. The pool was never busy, no noisy fellow residents. It is located on a hillside above Almyrida, so expect a uphill and downhill terrain and is a 20 minute walk... More
