They need to bring back the menu to their restaurant. Some of us are not fat and want fresh food just cooked brought to our table.They had a wonderful Greek omelet and no more. So we went to Prices Café every morning. Also no more umbrella or chair rentals unless it's the weekend. 3rd year in a row and the people in the giftshop are still cold and rude.

Immediate Service
Love that I was greeted and offered help with my bags and no wait to check in our room overlooking the beach and ocean was amazing. The only negative thing I have to say is the parking we left for dinner came back and had to park on the other side of the hotel other than that it was a pretty nice and clean hotel.

Bad experience
My stay at emerald Beach was terrible. Staff let me check in until 5 pm, they said they had full House the night before so we have to wait because they couldn’t get room clean up fast enough. Any extra cleaning people?

Couples retreat
Stay was amazing, checking in was horrible. Long line and only so many people working the counter. They only allow you to check in at 4pm, we went to the lobby at 3:45 and the line was out the door to check in. I didn’t get my room til 4:45 and a line was still out the door. But overall stay was decent. Love the area and how it was beachfront!
