We booked this place for an overnight family reunion. When we arrived, the gazebo and the rooms were dirty. The aircon in some rooms we rented were not functioning well. Leaking pavilion. Night came, my nephew was carrying his sleeping daughter to one of the rooms when he fell into an open pit(!) along the walkway due to poor lighting... More

The place is near Microtel, on the same beach, where you pay more than double prices. We were the only guests at Emereld Playa and well looked after, especially by Rose, the manager. There is a big pergola where we took our breakfast ( very nice with lots of fresh fruit) and dinner (limited choice), but the restaurant of Microtel... More

Excellent, very-very beautiful place - clean, empty beach and clean, warm sea and a mangrove bush around! But I must say you, that ebbs and flows there are very strong. Nice cabanas with everyday cleaning. Very polite and helpful stuff: They arranged my transfer from airport (and waits me for 2h when my flight was delayed) and back. They serves... More

Our agent booked us here, not the deluxe hotel we wanted. Wow. At least the shacks were new and the inn keeper (Rose) was a sweetheart. No decent beach, unless you're a kite surfer. There is supposed to be a pool going in and a clubhouse, but that is in the future. The "food court" was a snack bar. Still... More

Awful shacks for rooms. A mangrove trying to pass as a swamp. The grounds were a dirt road carpark. They charged European prices for rooms. When I told them their ad on Agoda was misleading they blanked me. Their rooms were truly shabby. The water was very far away and the beach was very dirty. The 'food court' was a... More

We were 20 persons, my 16 yr daughter birthday and her friends and the accommodation, food, service and general surroundings were excellent. The resort is new and very well situated being some 25min from the airport. The best though is Ms Rose the manager who can arrange anything, tours, vans, food and came up with such good ideas as what... More
