Just returned home from a 2 week stay here, and what a wonderful place the Emi is! Situated right on the beach in Amoudara, it's the perfect place to kick back and relax. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the bedding and towels are changed very regularly, there's plenty of storage space and in the kitchen area there is a kettle included. Out on the balcony there is a table and chairs to enjoy the fresh air after a day in the sun. Air con is available at 6 Euro per night and there's also a flatscreen TV in every room, even though I never switched it on. There is a lift at Emi Seaside, which makes it perfect for those who struggle with stairs and those (like me), with 'Heavy' suitcases. On arrival, we were greeted by George, who welcomed us to Emi and showed us to our rooms, he told us to make ourselves comfortable and when ready, come to reception to check in and be served a welcome drink, this was well received after a long day travelling. George's Parents, Manos & Erasmia were also really lovely people and the whole family worked extremely hard to make our stay a perfect one. We felt so 'at home', and it's the special touches that makes Emi Seaside a real gem of a place. Everywhere was so clean and well kept, with a small pool to the rear of the property, along with parasols and plenty of sun loungers. There are also tables & chairs in the shade for a bite to eat from a really good menu and an outdoor shower and toilets. Inside there is a beautiful bar area, tastefully decorated. Not far from the pool area you reach the beach, there is a large covered pergola area with tables and chairs to sit out of the sun for lunch or a drink with a dedicated area of the beach for guests of Emi Seaside, again with sun loungers and parasols. You can be served drinks and food on the beach without having to move from your sun lounger..... fabulous! All in all this is a wonderful place to stay, perfect location, close to tavernas, restaurants and small supermarkets for essentials. There is also a bus stop directly over the road from the front of the property, where you can catch the bus to Heraklion. We as a family can't thank George, Manos and Erasmia, not forgetting 'Little George' (who served us our drinks and food), enough for making our stay here one of the best Greek holidays we have ever had. The family go above and beyond and we will definitely be going back!!…
Just returned from EMI Seaside. We honestly didn't want to come home. Made to feel so welcome by this lovely family. Food prepared by mamma was delicious, coffee to cocktails all made and served by the best host you could wish for. Papa Manos still works hard, always has a smile and completes this family team. The EMI is kept spotlessly clean, and nothing too much trouble, you only have to ask. Thank you for helping to make our holiday perfect.
Spent 14 nights here, from start to finish everything was just perfect. Nothing is to much trouble for George, his mammy and daddy. Not forgetting wee George and young girl. Quite, peaceful location, spotless clean and adhering to all covid related measures. Left after 14 days feeling like we were part of their family. Well done and will see you all again very soon
Well what can I say about emi All the rooms was very clean and beds and towels where changed every 2 days and cleaned.the food was fantastic especially the pizza . The beach was private and free sun beds and you do not have to move from the sunbeds as Lisa will bring drinks and food to you if you want. And the same around the pool. There is a supermarket next door and plenty of places on your doorstep to eat . The bus stop is next door and you get the bus ticket from the shop very cheap and straight forward . George is fantastic and mum and dad they will do any thing to help you they make EMI. We stayed 11 days and would go there again differently. Thank you George and mum and dad we will be back with Lucy .
We've just returned home after a fantastic week staying at the wonderful EMI Seaside apartments! The room was spacious and incredibly clean! It had everything we needed and a lovely balcony with a side view of the sea. EMI Seaside is in the perfect location; it's close to all the local amenities, there's the bus stop to Heraklion outside the hotel and it's right on the beach! The private beach area is brilliant - there are sun loungers and umbrellas and a covered pergola area with additional seating. Thank you George and the whole EMI team for a lovely holiday!
