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 views from both balconies. We could cook meals for our fussy 5yr old and then head off to the hotel's superb restaurant or one of the villages. The garden, while small is very cleverly laid out, beautifully planted and full of wildlife making it fascinating for children and adults alike. The pool was perfect for us all and there was always a nook to sit in a swing chair to while away the heat of the day with a good book. What makes the place so special is the staff who are so welcoming, informative, friendly and relaxed (whilst remaining professional) whose ways of being determine the atmosphere of the hotel. The restaurant's views are incredible and the food matches that, seriously great food with a modern twist...just divine!
