3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness
The location,beach and bartenders are excellent! The front desk service was great. The room construction needs repair. We were killing black bugs in our room everyday. They need microwaves. Broken fixtures/lighting need attention for the price. The beach boss for the hotel is rude. Not allowing us to use beach furniture near building 3 by our room. Even though there are huts set up to lounge by. He said we could only use our towels. Which is ridiculous. He seemed to be the guy who runs the water sports. That was plenty of room. The restaurant service is a little unorganized. We had to wait 40 minutes to an hour for meals more than once. They forgot to put our order in once as well. If you ate at the bar, excellent service from all bartenders! This hotel has the potential of greatness! I work in the customer service industry and I see what small changes need to be made. Bathrooms need recaulking, rooms need microwaves, exterminate building 3, make sure restaurants are properly staffed when busy and allow beach furniture under the beach huts in front of building 3. Putting sunscreen in the vending machines is also another great idea. The beach is absolutely amazing!!! This hotel could be amazing as well. I hope they really consider my insight.

The hotel is on a private beach and very close to airport. Taxis are readily available to and from hotel. Hotel is a bit outdated. No elevator. Gym had no water, no towels and broken air conditioner.

Perfect location, beach is amazing and the staff was really nice and helpful.. rooms were nice but the beds are a little hard. Tips for others, either sleep with ear plugs or sleep with a tv on because those roosters are going to wake you up at 4am every morning. And don’t leave your balcony door open while you sleep.

I would not recommend this property. My first complaint was the constant flies at the restaurant. It’s really annoying trying to swat flies while eating. Next I ordered grilled chicken tacos. The seasoning was good but the chicken was cold and not cooked. It’s like they took it out the fridge and placed it onto the taco. Food in the restaurant didn’t look or smell good. My daughter and I ate pizza and burgers during the rest of my stay to keep it safe. I spent at least $50 each meal. Next at bedtime I discovered my bed at a bedbug on it. I killed it, placed it in a cup and went to the front desk. They gave me a new room and offered me my money back for the first night. After all the beach and the pool were nice. I made the best of my stay with my daughter for Mother’s Day weekend. It’s safe to say I won’t be going back to this resort.

We stayed at Emerald Beach because it was close to the airport. The photos are very deceiving. The property is very run down and everything needs updating. There was rust on the faucet in the shower, there was limited lighting in the room, the beds were extremely uncomfortable - it was not a good experience. The staff seemed friendly at the front desk, but not as much at the restaurant on site. The food and drinks were not good at all.
