We stayed for a week from 19th September 2015 and had a lovely relaxing holiday. The hotel is lovely and the staff are very helpful. We booked through Teletext Holidays and it cost us half the price that others paid. We stayed in room 302 with a lovely view over the pool to the sea. The bed was very comfortable... More

To start let me explain this was our 7th. visit to the Greek islands so we understand what star ratings really mean in relation to Greece. Having travelled all over the world and stayed in 100,s of hotels we also understand hotels. Before you read further remember this is a hotel claiming to be 5 star. On arrival no one... More

We have just returned from a week's holiday at the Ionian Emerald Resort and have to say that it is one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in for a holiday. It is not big hotel, only 36 rooms, which makes it a very intimate hotel and as it was September, a little quieter than usual which is what... More

When we arrived at the hotel we were impressed by the pool area and the rooms were lovely decorated. Plenty of day light and a view. We had a few problems with our rooms, but these were sorted out efficiently considering the hotel was at full capacity. The kids loved the pool and it was nice to have the option... More

A very nice, well kept hotel with attentive staff and good facilities. We had no problems with getting a sun bed and enjoyed the private beach with complimentary beds and parasol. The location is relatively quiet but there are 3 tavernas , a bakery and a mini market within about 500 yards and the bars and restaurants of Sami are... More

We stayed here in September 2014. Our room was very quiet and private. The bed was extremely comfortable. Beautiful views across to Ithaca. The pool was of a good size, the sun loungers were glorious! The pool bar served super snack meals and incidentally, really good cocktails too. The hotel restaurant food was very high quality indeed but more of... More
