The Emerald Hotel is an outstanding location to enjoy the local life of Plaka, near Almyrida, Crete. We stayed here 12 years ago and came back in 2014. A lot has changed, particularly the restaurant, which is now open to non-residents. You won't be disappointed. The food and wine are of the highest quality and and the setting just amazing. Christos and the girls looked after us so nicely. Will definitely be back. The hotel is managed by the lovely Esmeralda, who met us 12 years ago and warmly invited us back in 2014. What hasn't changed is the wonderful pool and garden area. Simply a joy to swim and sun bath in.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Emerald Hotel is set high up on the cliffside of Plaka village of Apokoronas in Chania – just a 25 minute drive from Chania centre and its must see old Venetian harbor. With 11 spacious apartments (each with a separate bedroom), a snack / cafe-bar-restaurant open terrace area with cretan creative cuisine and a large swimming pool (80sqm), Emerald Hotel is just the place to relax and unwind; open each year from 1 April to 31 October. The views from Emerald Hotel are both to the sea (to the village of Almyrida and beyond) and to the White Mountains – simply breathtaking. These same views can be enjoyed from the comfort of your own self-catering apartment. Equipped with a kitchen, the apartments are spacious, practical and perfectly functional. The large swimming pool also has a shallow section for children (0.80cm -2.4m depth). Trees, plants and flowers surround the hotel and give it a home-like feel to it. Focusing on families with children, Emerald Hotel has also a children’s playground. ... more less
