Pool / Spa
Check-in: 4:00 PM
Check-out: 9:00 AM
I think the resort and condo were great. I only have two recommendations 1. Each bathroom needs a trash can. Cannot believe they did not. 2. Checkout at 9:00 am is ridiculous. Next time will look for a condo with 11:00 checkout. This is vacation, not work.
Condo = great, Emerald beach = OK
Stay: Sept 9-14th
The condo was very clean and was well appointed for an comfortable and relaxing stay while indoors. Kitchen was well stocked for basic cooking requirements. Bathrooms are roomy with plenty of towels. The bedroom bath has a very slippery tub floor and quite a low ceiling and shower head (for anyone over 6') so be cautious. Bedroom is a little on the small side with limited storage and I found the bed a little uncomfortable but not a deal breaker. I never heard noise form neighboring units other than a rumble from the sliding balcony doors (very heavy and solid)
The unit is on the 9th floor adjacent to the elevators and trash chute with the bedroom window facing these as well - convenient but occasionally noisy at night due to inconsiderate vacationers. The balcony is roomy with a great view and high enough to avoid noise from the pool area yet still hear the crashing waves. The WiFi was sufficient to lookup and plan outings or read/send emails but I wouldn't count on a lot of streaming.
As for Emerald Beach. It is a HUGE development with plenty of amenities but has the busyness to match. The bar (usually empty) in the sky way creates a narrow walking space from the parking deck to the units and is often crowded with people and loaded luggage carts. Getting your cart from the parking deck to the unit requires using two elevators and the carts can be anywhere. The elevators were quick, but hot and dirty with most floor indicators non functional so you have to peek outside to see which floor you are on.
The beach pool is small and, during my stay, did not allow coolers or alcoholic beverages. This was obviously for the benefit of the "tiki" bar located at the pool and a ridiculous limitation - the bar is also open to the public. Pool and beach access are via interior double doors and narrow boardwalk which was problematic for people with kids and/or a lot of gear to carry out. Beach was clean but packed with two rows of rental chairs fairly close to the surf. The store and Starbucks located in the parking structure did not keep set hours and I never was certain of when either was open. For myself, this was not the place for a quiet and relaxing vacation.
The property management company was efficient and thorough in providing all the information necessary before, during and after my stay. Access to info was via mobile which loaded quickly and covered everything. All items required by Emerald Beach were waiting for me in the unit.
Condo was nice and clean. View was beautiful
Condo was nice and clean. View was beautiful. I would request this unit again. Check in and out was flawless. Elevators were fast and never an issue with waiting. The only issue we had was standing water issue outside the front door. After it rained the water remained the entire 4 nights of our stay and we couldn’t get anyone to clean it up. Only a caution wet sign was put out. I called security who was suppose to tell housekeeping and I sent message to Southern Vacation Rentals who stated work order was placed. It was so bad one night that water came in a little underneath the door we had to keep towel at the door. It was a pain to step in water every time we left and entered the condo. I am not being negative but hoping this issue is fixed for future renters. I had no other issues and would return to this unit. I personally would have liked the condo to be brighter colors, the dark brown walls, dark carpet, furniture seemed to make it dark and I think a beach rental should feel more bright, warm and cheerful but again that is just personal opinion and I wouldn’t let that keep me from renting again. Those reasons listed above are why i didn’t give it a 5 star rating. Had a great time overall and hoping to return.
Great condo!!! Can't wait to come back!!!
Stay was Good
Had a great stay at Emerald Beach Resort . Condo had everything we needed for our stay. Only thing missing was our parking pass which was promptly provided. The absolute only thing I could possibly think of was the Bed was the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept on. But aside from that . Our stay was great. Condo had all we needed for our week..
Very clean and updated!
