Just returned from a weeks stay at the Emerald. Read mixed reviews before we went, but went with an open mind. Arrived in the early hours and was greeted by an unfriendly man on the desk. We were asked to give over passports and were given a printed list of aircon, breakfast, safe and late checkout prices. Some prices had been increased by pen. The apartment was very basic and needed a good clean. The fridge was frozen solid and ice had formed outside of the ice compartment. The shower head was disgusting!! We reported the fridge problem and was told it had been looked at and was working. It was working, but not properly and we chipped off the ice ourselves. The defrost button had been pushed in and it was leaking water! Simple when you do it yourself. Towels changed and beds made every day. The hotel offers a good selection of drinks and we only ate there on our check-out evening and the food was great. Staff don't make the effort to be friendly, but if you spend alot of time at the hotel they seem to make much more of an effort. This is a side they need to work on. We were still paying guests!! The pools are great and there are plenty of sunbeds to have. The local area is good to get out and about in. The Ideal bar on the corner did a great breakfast and were very friendly. Found some nice little Greek taverns close by for drinking and eating, but prices vary. You can walk into the nearest town of Kremasti and find more bars and taverns. The beach is shingled, but nice and Dimitri loans sunbeds for 3euro a day. Buses are frequent, roughly every 15 minutes. A single trip costs 2.20 euro per person. If you book with a tour operator be careful of the excursions they offer. We took a boat trip to Lindos and could have saved money doing it wihout the tour operator. Most of them are available in Rhodes at a fraction of the cost. We had an adult family holiday and found plenty to do and enjoy in this part of Greece.
