This hotel is perfect for...
• Honeymoons • Family holidays • Romantic breaks • Peace and quiet • Lazy days
What I liked
All staff are very friendly and helpful. The decor is a combination of contemporary trendy and chic. We had a lovely room with a pool shared by 4 other couples; this was beautiful - very relaxing with a good view of the sea and island beyond. The hotel is well kept and very clean. Bed linen and towels are changed daily and our room serviced twice daily. Our own pool area was impeccably kept with fresh clean towels replenished every day. Any problems with our room were promptly seen to. Breakfast is well stocked at all times with an excellent selection of choices to suit all. My husband and I found the shuttle service into Fiskardo very useful and prompt, every hour to and from the hotel, the last bus leaving Fiskardo at 23.10. There is a good variety of entertainment each night. The hotel has some wonderful areas for sitting and relaxing with spectacular views. We didn't use the spa facilities.
What could be better
Although we didn't eat at the hotel in the evenings that often, we enjoyed the food, however the hotel does not offer an extensive wine list, this was a little disappointing for us.
There is a good selection of restaurants in Fiskardo - we particularly loved 'Apagio' Restaurant. The food is very good with an extensive wine list. The staff are very neat and smartly dressed, very attentive and well informed about all on the menu and wine list. Their prices are not expensive in comparison with others in the vicinity and they provide a dessert and aperitif on the house. Close to this restaurant is a very good coffee shop selling wonderful cakes and pastries. Next door to the coffee shop is an icecream parlour selling very delicious treats. The bay close to the hotel is very pretty with an array of olive trees to use for shelter. There are an abundance of very pretty bays within walking distance of Fiskardo that are well worth exploring. All the bays we visited, including Murtos Bay, are white pebbly shingle so its well worth taking flipflops to negotiate this. The water temperature is extremely pleasant to swim in and good for snorkeling. We liked nearby Assos - another very pretty harbour with a good selection of restaurants and beach.

We chose Emelisse for the first 4 nights of our honeymoon and could not have picked a better hotel to relax and chill-out. The hotel arranged an airport transfer for us and we were greeted on arrival by a chilled glass of water with cucumber ribbons, local sweets and a fresh towel to freshen up. We were very happy with the room, great size balcony – had a nice view – and the bathroom was excellent. Only small issue was with the bed, which we felt could have been harder for our liking. Room service and both bar and restaurant food was excellent with an adequate selection of food options for vegetarians. All staff were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the pool table and the chill-out area with internet access. The seaside cove near the infinity pool was fantastic and we enjoyed jumping off the board into the open sea, which was crystal clear. The hotel provides a great shuttle service to and from Fiskardo, which gave us further options to choose restaurants and bars outside the hotel. The harbour at Fiskardo is very pretty, and unconventionally we had an amazing Thai meal – we fancied something spicy – at the Lord Falcon restaurant, a great place which allowed us to relax after our wedding.

What an amazing spot, and what a perfect family holiday. Nothing was too much trouble for the lovely staff at the hotel, and the views, pools and beach are all outstanding. We stayed in a 2 bed maisonette, which was perfect for our family of 5, and the 25m pool in front of the apartment was nearly exclusively ours. We loved the freshly baked cakes every morning at breakfast and the little macaroons delivered to the room each night. The day out on the Emelisse boat was a highlight. If I had to find something to fault it would be the pillows on the beds, quite uncomfortable and hard but possibly just down to personal preference. Hope to be back one day.
