The hotel was clean and simple, perfect for a self-catering party holiday. The staff in the bar couldn't do enough to help you and make your stay perfect. The drinks weren't too expensive in comparison the rest of Malia which had strict minimum drink prices of around 5 Euros per drink. The only negatives would be the simplicity of the... More

I stayed in the Emerald with my boyfriend the last 2 weeks of September, it is the 3rd time we have stayed at the Emerald and will be going back again! The hotel is in a great location, the rooms are clean and the staff are lovely :)... I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Malia!

Arrived home on Saturday from Emerald Apartments in Malia and so sad too be home!! Definitely recommend for young couples in September, the kitchen facilities in the apartment aren't much but the food in the bar in the apartments is lovely and the delicatessen at the end of the street is amazing for nice fresh rolls, salads, ice cream, cakes...

Excellent location, walking distance of the old town & 20 minutes to the beach. Nice pool and just far enough from the strip to be peaceful. Lovely friendly and hard working owners and staff. We had some wonderful meals and nice days out. Highly recommended. Malia was much nicer than I thought it would be.

Where do I start here... We arrived a week ago and stayed in room 125 which is a low pool level room which was incredibly spotless. We enjoyed breakfast on our terrace each morning as we bought coffee from home and bought fabulous croissants from the bakers 3 doors down and also they make amazing Greek pastries and filled baguettes...

Stayed here mid to late June with a group of 8 lads. Only people in the hotel except for one other guest opposite. Allegedly all booked up the following week, but suited us for the type of holiday we wanted. Staff, all 3 of them were absolutely sound at the time we went, especially Emma who spoke great English.
