#1 of 3 hotels in Plaka
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.

The apartments are very well equipped and spacious, have free air con, and are spotlessly clean. The views are incredible and the pool is clean and divine! The owner Esmerelda and Hotel Manager Constantinos are so nice and welcoming too, as is Katerina and Olga who help out at the bar and restaurant. We had such a relaxing stay and will definitely return

A real jewel that was recommended by a friend ❤️ From arrival to departure the whole experience has been first class. Communication with the owners to reserve accommodation was easy, the room was excellent and provided everything we needed including much needed air con in the bedroom. Facilities are superb with a beautiful pool and bar area that supports stunning sunsets. The food in the restaurant is top notch and service and quality is maintained highly by Kostas. Myself and my wife to be will be back ❤️❤️

WOW!!!!!!! An absolutely incredible and phenomenal location, food and hospitality! with a very local feel and lacking lots of tourists (bliss) this little gem is worth a visit. The owner Constantinos runs the restaurant and the hotel and is an inspirational and passionate man with excellent english and a demon in the kitchen.

We had a lovely two weeks based at the Emerald and couldn't recommend it more highly. The bedroom and living room area have high ceilings and feel spacious. The front balcony has a view over the swimming pool to the Aegian below, Almerida and Kalives beaches, and beyond the beaches the White Mountains. The staff are friendly and there's an onsite restaurant. The Emerald is very reasonably priced and within 10 or fifteen minutes' walk from the village of Plaka in one direction and from Almyrida beach in the other. We didn't rent a car and tended to take taxis up the hill after a day at the beach. Kalives is the next beach along and well worth a visit or two. All in all, a perfect stay and can't wait to return!
