Facilities of the rooms were very good and spacious. The only issue the bed was extremely hard, even putting the quilt on the mattress, still didn't make any difference. This was the only issue we experienced. The bread van coming daily was great for breakfast - just not so for the figure. View was stunning. Did wish they had a sun lounger on the balcony. Over all very enjoyable, only issue was the bad back due to the bed being so hard.

We arrived right at the end of the season (22nd-29th September) and enjoyed decent weather; it was in the middle-to-high 20s for most of the week, with only one or so days of miserable weather. We'd hired a car (definitely recommended) which allowed us to explore when we didn't want to be on the beach. The room was a bit dreary and in need of some decoration, with the overall feeling of the complex itself a bit tired. The bar by the pool was well-stocked and good value, but the pool itself needed cleaning and was always full of dead insects. We had fresh towels each day, but not sure if the bed linen was changed each day. The fridge stopped working after the second day, and the lock on the outer door to the balcony was broken. The toilet also occasionally stopped filling up with water to flush, and the shower head needed descaling - sprayed everywhere. It wasn't bad for what we paid, but I'm not sure we'd go back there.
DONT GO THE END OF SEASON! Nice views

When we arrived at emerald we were taken to our room (number 42) it had lovely views of the beach. Room is very basic and small but had enough for what you need. No shower curtain but that’s a Greek thing! It had a hob and a kettle, some pans, plates and cutlery. We had 3 plugs in our room, non of them by the bed but that’s not a problem. Beds are quite hard to sleep on and they give you one pillow and no blanket (we asked for more and they gave us more pillows and blankets) We went straight to the pool after arriving and we were very disappointed as we are pool lovers! It looked murky/dirty and there’s not a lot of room for sun loungers around the pool. The bar doesn’t sell food but they have a takeaway menu. It rained one day and they said the take away wasn’t delivering that day, so my husband had to walk down the hill in the rain for our tea. Unfortunately we weren’t told that it was the last week of the season. The train that runs across the town had stopped running, a lot of the tavernas had closed and most places had sold out of things that we asked for. The weather was nice but it rained 1 1/2 days. The beach was beautiful so we went there every day, we found a nice place called Paralia nouveau but it was about a mile walk. THE HILL! I called it cardiac hill. I am unfit and it killed me, I dreaded it every day! I heard that someone hired a car just for the hill! (Bit extreme) but it is hard going! We walked up it twice a day. I think if we had gone a few weeks earlier when things were open we might have enjoyed it a bit more! everyone we spoke to really enjoyed themselves so we felt like the moaning Minnie’s which we are not usually! I think we were the only people in ours 30s there, everyone seemed to be a bit older so it was peaceful! Over all the room was clean, the balcony was huge and views were beautiful. Disappointed by the pool and I would advise never to go the last week of season (22nd-29th September) I understand the end of season is not the hotels fault.

Our first time in Thassos and loved it , we will be returning. We made some great friends. The Emerald Hotel - the view are amazing and you get what you pay for but not for anyone with walking disabilities. There are lots of hills and steps within the hotel. Lots has been mentioned about the hills to reach the property. I am relatively fit but they were a drag - didnt spoil the holiday but they did for some. Cant wait to return to Thassos next year

My Husband and I stayed at the Emerald studios for a week,. All the other reviews mention the Hill, This is no joke its a hill alright, As we went late in season the Temperature was not as Hot so how the Hill would be in full summer heat might be a problem for some When we arrived most of the coach got off for the Emerald there is 3 buildings , THE OWNER met the whole group, but say it was badly organised was a joke for people who had been traveling most of the day all they wanted was to get a key for their room, but he insisted on take 1& 2s to their room from one building to next. The room we stayed in was as more BASIC than any other we have stayed in on all the Greek islands. The Bed was like sleeping on a sack of potatoes rock hard, and lumps and bumps. The light switch in the kitchen area , we realised we had to tap to get the kitchen light to work, all the electric sockets were loose . The outside door had at sometime been forced and just fixed as best it could. If you are near the bar area Studios the noise is bad, and can go on until 3.30 . The best thing going for the Emerald is the view over looking the bay We spent most of our time at the Beach the best place if weather is good. I can recommend Amos beach Bar free sun beds and the staff and food is brilliant.
