The hotel is going through a major renovation and will become a 5*star location. It is a site to be put on your places to stay at in 2015. It is quaint at this point in time and difficult to get a reservation but it will be worth your wait. I loved it and the quietness of the place and... More

My friend, daughter and I stayed at the emerald palms a long time ago, whether it's changed now I'm not sure but the place it's self was beautiful, our villa on the beach was perfect. We had booked private charter to Congo Town and was taken to the villa by a person at the airport who obviously slept a little... More

We went to emerald palms in June 2011. We had a great time. We were 2 females traveling. We always felt safe. The hotel was nice, rooms spacious. Although limited food selection everything we had was good. We just enjoyed kayaking every day. You could swim to coral that extends down the beach. We spent most of the day in... More

The only thing we can recommend: don't plan your holidays there!!! We wanted to spend our honeymoon here last december, but we could not go there due to their fault and the hotel's incredibly big 'customer-friendly behaviour'! We have booked a honeymoon-package in June for december, the reservation was confirmed by the hotel and the deposit was charged by them... More

I and my fiance really enjoyed our stay at Emerald Palms. We got a wonderful room (even better than the one we paid for) and just loved the place and its surroundings. Beautiful. Relaxed. And totally worth the money.

I visited South Andros for a spearfishing trip earlier this June with a few friends after hearing of the quality fishing the Island had to offer. After looking around for lodging, a friend of mine who had stayed on the island before reccomended the Emerald Palms. When we arrived we were not dissapointed. The resort taxi was waiting to pick...

Emerald Palms was the most amazing resort, with great service and a very friendly and helpful staff. It was paradise and offered everything you could possibly ask for. The owners of Emerald Palms are amazing and were so helpful all week. They were very friendly and catered to our every need. If you are going to the Bahamas this is... More

My wife and two kids just got back from a wonderful stay at Emerald Palms in South Andros. The resort was truly spectacular, from great food, friendly staff, and most of all beauty! This trip was a great opportunity to relax and get away from all the loud action and people that places like Nassau and Jamaica have. I will... More

Just got back from 5 nights at Emerald Palms, everyone was very nice and the food was good. We stayed in a club room, garden view which actually had a better view of the ocean than a club room pool view. The bikes were fun and there is a little restaurant outside the grounds that you can eat at if... More

We stayed 3 nights here and had a villa. The villa was very nice however, the light bulbs are far too dim in the lamps and bathroom. Still the bed was very comfortable and everything clean and well decorated. The only other issue for us was the taxi ride in. The customs agents will hustle the taxi for you. Seems... More

Palmtreesgalore, Owner at Emerald Palms by the Sea, responded to this review

Thank you for your suggestions. I would like to point out that customs agents have nothing to do with taxi's. We ask a taxi driver to pick up our guests from a flight. The fare for two people from the airport is $13.00. If you paid $30.00 it was for a round trip including a two dollar tip each way,... More
