Below average hotel - Awesome beach!
Posted Feb 1, 2017
Our stay at Emerald Beach was so-so... worth it for the price and beach.
Starting with pros:
BEACH was well groomed, steps away from room, beautiful, not busy in this area.....
FOOD was wonderful but (below cons)....
1/2 the STAFF was polite/nice, the other 1/2 was rude/lazy....
ROOMS were clean (minus few ants), decent beds, had hot water, bedding clean, accomodating with fridge/coffee pot.
FOOD was expensive but I think it was most places, went next door quite a bit (better service and cheaper prices)
1/2 the Staff that was rude/ lazy-- I reported a broken hairdryer 1st day, never got new one.... I reported our safe locked us out right away with our cash inside (low battery)... couldnt get anyone to help for 2 days. At resturant 1/2 the staff was great, the other 1/2 was so rude, very lazy (which they call island time, ha)-- no...they were plain lazy, no get up and go.... these particular waitresses knew they were terrible and charged gratuity even though we only had 2 meals and the total was less then the "gratuity rule", they did this everytime but the good ones did not. Because of this we dined and drank alot at the BeachComber just down the beach (Staff great, Food Great, Prices a little better) Bartender was fun and heavy pourer :)-
ROOMS were so-so, Some tile falling off/missing (no biggie to me though), ants in bathroom, safe issues, hair dryer bad,
