It's an older property that has its own charm. The rooms are clean, beds comfortable and depending on your room, the view isn't bad either. It's not like the big brand named hotels, however, the Emerald is right on the beach. There's a pool, bar, and cafe. The staff is very helpful, courteous, and professional. When we had a concern, they took care of it immediately. If you're looking for shiny, perfect, and new, this isn't the place for you. If you're looking for charm, excellent customer service, a comfortable room with a view, that's on the beach, so you and your family can make memories. This is the place!
