Friendly Hotel staff made our stay.
You get what you pay for. The price represents the quality. Before the 2017 storm it was was so much nicer. It’s not back to the original condition. But you can tell they are trying and getting there. The staff is friendly and did their best to accommodate you when needed. I had no issues with my stay and the bed was comfy AC worked and I had a nice view. It was just not what it was before I hope that they get this hotel back to its luster. Because it’s a great area on the bay. And close to the airport.

This resorts needs an overhaul. It is really run down and dirty. We booked this because of the high rating and it was close to the airport. I would not recommend or stay here again!

8/10 Very good

When we first arrived, the hotel looked nothing like the pictures as advertised. We ended up having to change rooms due to the conditions of our first room; the bed was hard, very uncomfortable, the room was not clean and our ocean views were blocked by tree’s. The next room was a newer room, bed was a tiny bit more comfortable, still uneven and stiff. The bathroom was the same but a little more updated with finished. Our view was of part ocean and part tree’s and runbish. The landscaping there around the room area is very poor and could use some attention. Our air conditioning went out for almost 24hrs and we were only told they were doing the best they could do to get it working again; it was hot. The water in the shower would only get warm if we ran the water in the sink at the same time; even then it was only luke warm but better than cold. No cable tv, its antenna and you get 6 channels and the wifi hardly works. The concierge went over several options for tours; we chose a jeep tour for St. John only to find out she booked the wrong one. The best thing about staying at the Emerald Beach was the restaurant and restaurant staff; they were awesome and everything we ate was delicious! The views from there was great too and right on the beach. The beach there is not very big but never got crowded and felt like our own little piece of paradise. Overall, we had a great time but may consider staying at another location on our next trip.
