“Excellent Holiday!”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Just returned today from a weeks stay at the Emerald and we were very impressed with this hotel.

The only minus was that the indoor area for eating was very drab and bright and not a place to relax for an evening.

Try Zorbas Taverna which is past the Blue Bay hotel on the right hand side.

Good food at reasonable prices and a nice outside area to relax and enjoy your evening.

We had a night flight and were able to keep on our room until 11.00pm for only 30 euros extra which made a huge difference.

We paid under £250 each for the week and thought this was excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Avoid the ground floor rooms close to the bar area.

We stayed in an apartment with our 10 month old son. The holiday was chosen based around his needs.

We were greeted by Spiros and shown to our room. I was surprised by the space we had, it was large enough for our needs inside.

Outside we had a half balcony, due to our corner positioning; therefore sitting outside as a family was a no go.

Our son had to sleep in a travel cot for two weeks, the first of which repeatedly collapsed on him. Spiros advised that the cleaning staff deal with room equipment and we would have to wait until the next morning for the problem to be rectified. The cleaner did indeed remember and replace the cot, with another old and unsatisfactory cot. I had to roll up the winter duvet and place it underneath the cot body to ensure the dip in the middle wasn't as severe. I also had to pad the cot out with hotel towels. Not great.

Staff were friendly and efficient. The cleaning staff worked around our coming and going to the room, which was a pleasant surprise.

We saw the pool/area being cleaned nightly and were treated to three pools to use. There were also ample sunbeds.

The food at the Emerald hints at being frozen. I wouldn't like to say that it is for sure, however after living in Greece I can say that I have never encountered Greek cuisine like it. It was not unpleasant, just disappointing. It isn't hard to prepare a Greek salad, yet the two I encountered at the hotel were terrible.
If you like chips with every meal, you're in luck!

High chairs at the hotel were hard to come by and even harder to use since they do not have straps to keep the baby in. Paying over the odds for average food then having to eat with your baby in your lap was an annoyance.

The planes did not bother us in the slightest. They are not constant and fly over at such a speed, the noise is gone before it begins.

Kremasti in itself was lacking in anything traditionally Greek. One taverna with a very limited menu. Several grill houses with the same menu. The walk in to Kremasti is along a long, narrow pavement on a very busy road.

There is the Ideal Bar around the corner from the Emerald and from this we could hear the nightly karaoke. The good here was also disappointing.

The local shop is well stocked and the family who own it are very helpful.

Kremasti beach was great for us, the breeze is wonderful and if you hard away from the paid sunbeds, there is a little sand.

We rented a car from the Rio Car Hire and found the service and professionalism of the owner was excellent.

Our day trip in the car took us to Lindos, the saving grace of Rhodes. Traditional Greece with reasonable prices for home cooked food and a relaxed atmosphere. The winding streets and white washed houses are stunning and the gift shops set the whole place off. At Pauls Bay at the mouth of Lindos is picturesque and worth a visit. We saw lots of swimmers and glass bottomed boats.

Kakithea Springs was gorgeous and a full day event. Take your swimming gear and enjoy the water. Then have lunch over looking the bay - relaxing!

All in all, an average holiday. Suited to people who like to sit in the bar at the hotel/local pub, make friends with the staff and do very little sightseeing and plenty of sunbathing.

First off all how anyone can complain about this hotel is beyond me the welcome we got was amazing and the food was excellent. Chris, Dominic, George, Spiros, Dale and Polly are always there for your every need, the hotel manger Maria always makes a point of saying hello and is always so helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Yes the planes do fly over but after a while you don't notice them, the rooms were always clean. This was our second time here and we will be going back

We had a really good holiday thanks guys

This was our first visit to the Emerald and was arranged as a last minute break. We were delighted by the friendly staff and the spotlessly clean room - something we have rarely found at some multi starred establishments elsewhere.The entire Hotel and pool/garden areas were also meticulously maintained. Staff were great, friendly and helpful. We stayed on a self catering basis and were surprised to see room cleaned daily and towels, linens etc. changed. We had a fabulous holiday and would definitely stay again. Had to pay extra for air conditioning but well worth it. Aircraft noise can be a bit annoying but we all arrived the same way so why should we be too upset by others doing the same when everything else about the Hotel is so perfect.

Although the hotel is clean - we were burgled whilst we were asleep in our beds and another couple were also. When reporting to reception our experience they basically just shrugged and said it was one of those things. No sympathy, no empathy and no help offered so made the rest of our stay was not pleasant.
