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

Stayed for 12 nights end of July and had a lovely time but there is something missing that I can't quite put my finger on Staff great very clean hotel and pool is well laid out Can't say I agree with the Athina hotel next door being able to use the pool but we never had an issue with beds... 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

This is a fine place to stay, but do not expect the amenities, service, and comfort of a 5-star hotel. A few examples: 1) We asked for a room with a full sized bed, we got a room with two twins pushed together. We asked to switch rooms but were told that was not possible. 2) The toiletries in our...

We have just returned from a 2 week stay here and the hotel itself is lovely - beautiful views of the sea and the mountains, set in a peaceful area and very clean and modern. The staff are very friendly - especially the pool bar staff where nothing was too much trouble. The pool area is excellent - comfy sunbeds,... More

Just as wonderful as our last year visit. Very clean rooms and pool. Lovely staff. Great location. Good choice of local restaurants, wonderful beaches, so clean. Such a fantastic location with very few other hotels, so not busy at all. A MUST visit Ithaka island across the water (looks like what the South of France must have looked like some... More

The Ionian Emerald is a beautiful modern hotel in the most tranquil setting, overlooking the ionian sea and mountains and about a mile from Sami Harbour. We thought we had dropped into paradise, Our room 301 was overlooking the pool at the playground side, Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, the food was top notch and reasonable priced,...

Stayed there for two nights recently and am still wishing it was longer. Clean rooms, great facilities (pool area next to play equipment is a great idea), standard buffet breakfast and great room service. However the concierge was either tired or overheated as the man that we dealt with, didn't offer '5 star' customer service. He wasn't rude he just... More

Checked in at last minute due to bad booking across the road. Needed a shower to find shower head broken. They replaced it promptly. Phone and TV did not work and despite repeated request/ it was not fixed. Although the pool and facilities were good this was not a five star service. Receptionist did not even say a word on...
