Thank you for your review.

This hotel was nice as it sat directly on the beach and all rooms faced the beautiful bay. The rooms were spacious. The hotel was very stingy with the towels 2 bath, 2 hand, 2 washcloths. The restaurant was so-so. We had breakfast one day and all the entrees were full meals, nothing like just a fruit bowl or just a muffin. All or nothing. Now they did have a little Tiki bar with some small breakfast stuff, but no seating. Dinner was fair; there is much better food at other places on the Island (French Quarter Bistro, Sea La Vie, Virgellios, Hook/line/sinker, Stonehouse) The worse part of the hotel was the water temperature of the shower. It was either very, very hot or cold. Nothing in between. We told the desk several times and they said someone would look into it, but we were doubtful anything was done.

The Emerald Beach Resort has a beautiful beach and is easy to get to downtown and other areas. It needs upgrading, and many rooms are not easy to access as there are lot of steps and the walkways are not covered and it rains frequently there. The restaurant staff were extremely unprofessional and dismissive; the menu did not change the 5 days we were there and the resort lost power twice in five days. The reception staff were excellent and very helpful'. The Resort did compensate us for power outage and other inconveniences.
