They had trouble finding our reservation for 2 rooms. Finally found it but one room wasn’t ready until after 5 pm. Air conditioning in one room didn’t work. Tv in the other room didn’t work. Resort location is very nice and convenient. Nice beach and beach bar/restaurant. Food was good. Pool was nice. Hotel itself is older and in need of some updating.

The concierge Michelle made our experience memorable. Even before we left NY she texted me with super useful information and when we arrived she helped us book restaurant reservations for that same night for our 10yr wedding anniversary at Prime. She also helped us book splash and swim with dolphins and another tour to swim with sea turtles. The staff in general are really nice. The beach was so beautiful. We had a great time jet skiing. Our room though was slightly disappointing. We didn't have hot water, we couldn't get the Netflix on the tv to work and it sucked not having a microwave to reheat up our take out food. Still it was a great trip.

This property has been recently remodeled. The rooms were very nice. The 2 young men at the beach/restaurant bar were fantastic. Super speedy and hustling. Huge difference from the place we stayed last week across the bay at Lindberg. Emerald Beach Resort is a “5”. Lindberg a 1.5-2.0

Great access to the beach! Some staff friendly but not all. Would be nice to have a warmer welcome and smiles throughout the visit.

The location was just stunning. Water was so clean and beautiful to swim in. I brought my own snorkel gear off of amazon and saw some great fish. ( have to go to the darker seaweed spots) . They did offer chairs and some umbrella shade but you need to get there by 9:30 to get ones in a good spot that were decent ( not sunken in/ broken). If you walked further down there was more chairs / umbrellas to rent for money. View from balcony was amazing- and they all are. Our original room had a smelly under sink area and the toilet leaked. They gave us a new room with no issues. There is really nothing( food / drinks) in walking distance besides the one restaurant at the hotel. The website says 3 restaurants but emerald beach cafe was closed for our whole 5 day stay and the other two are really one. We got sick of the food quick. You need to take taxis everywhere for a change up of food. Taxis are between $6-12 a person . The pace at the restaurant on the resort was ridiculously slow - like wait 20 min for someone to just come over to you. The food was not amazing but good. It was expensive ( like everywhere here). I loved the chicken tacos and greek salad. Also many times we needed pool towels they only had 1. We didn’t bring towels with us so this was a pain. They did have excursions like jet ski and some other stuff right on the beach.
