"Beautiful hotel, rooms with private pools and great service"
Absolute beautiful 5 star hotel with 5 start service. You are greeted and taken to your room, bags are taken care off. Warm towels and refreshments are offered at arrival. Room is perfect with modern shower. I had a private (shared) pool on my balcony, it was only shared with one other room and was on the cliff with beautiful views. The other occupants were never there, so I pretty much had the pool to myself. I arrived very late and still was able to get delicious dinner at the excellent restaurant by the pool. Again, service was outstanding!! Hotel's main pools all have gorgeous views.
Now has new owners. Was once a fabulous hotel, still has gorgeous view, the last of the long time good staff are off this year. The food in the restaurant is appalling, much better off to any restaurant in fiskardo , such a shame as used to have a great chef.. Such a shame after 4 years we won't be going again.
"A Stunning Location"
I stayed at the Emelisse for a week. The hotel is in a lovely peaceful spot about 5 minutes from Fiscardo. The grounds and design of the hotel are lovely but the rooms and facilities are looking rather tired and dreary. There was a nice terrace on top of the main building where they served breakfast however it was almost impossible to sit outside due to the number of wasps! The swimming pool was freezing cold and nobody went in it for more than two minutes - it was supposed to be heated! Bedrooms need redecorating and the beds were quite hard. There was an excellent hourly shuttle service into Fiscardo driven by Jackos who was extremely helpful. We also highly recommend the day’s boat trip with Captain Costas it was fantastic and very good value. Food in the hotel is average and we preferred to go into Fiscardo where there are many local tavernas serving good local food for reasonable prices. Breakfast was quite good though with a buffet and homemade produce. All in all this hotel would be lovely if it was updated!
"Now for something spectacularly different "
A sensational location with a sweeping vista overlooking The Ionian Sea towards Ithaca. 70 rooms in 17 separate buildings some with swimming pools. Two splendid Hotel pools the main one surrounded by loungers with a great bar and the superlative Votsalo Restaurant. Electric golf buggies ferry you around with a superb shuttle service in and out of Fiscardo. The buffet breakfast served alfresco on the first floor of reception is a total pleasure served with a smile by the wonderful staff who enhance everything about this great location. Add a spa, a fully equipped gym an inside bar and even a kids playground and there is little not catered for. In my view this is not a place for families. It is an ‘off the wall’ sensational retreat for people who want an understated retreat in magnificent surroundings which offers everything one might savour on a Greek Island . Sandy Beaches are NOT it’s forte. Impossible to photo because of its very nature but I loved the whole aura of this place. It has almost no competition. A marvellous experience. Sublime is a word to be used very cautiously. The Emelisse is sublime.
"The best holiday for years"
We have just spent a wonderful week at this hotel, I can find no fault, the staff were so helpful and friendly nothing was too much for them. The hotel, food and pools were just perfect and lovely walk into the port and a short walk to the beach. The setting for this hotel is wonderful, very calm and peaceful lots of lovely olive trees and tall cypress in the grounds so it was very pleasant just having a walk around the grounds, a must for years to come, I look forward very much to returning.
