We spent 11 nights at the Emerald - our third stay in Villa 16. As always, the room was beautiful with a private pool and outdoor shower. They were digging up the beach to recover from erosion during our stay so there was a bit of noise around, but the price and service more than made up for it. If... More

We just left the hotel and Police Station. This hotel took our money and did not give us a refund or room. Do not pay in advance. Do not pay with cash. Best advice is to stay away from this hotel. They are in need of repair, smell bad and do not have money to refund 2,400.00 Bhat for room.... More

Lovely grounds, beautiful hotel. I loved it that the grounds staff were all a wee bit impaired, clearly this hotel gives high need people jobs. They were lovely. The grounds stunning. The breakfast was a little disappointing, I expected better from this sort of hotel. The Asian dishes which I prefer were sort of watery / salty. My big gripe... More

Nice place and family friendly. Lots of people. Lots and lots of people. The breakfast is a nightmare crowd but is good food. The grounds look great and lots of foreign folks having a good time all over.

Expectations were that this would be a middle-class hotel, well suited for families, good pool area, clean and good beach close, good (thai) restaurants nearby and peaceful environment. All of those were met! Excuse me, but I think many complains are just because some people do not know where they are going and what are the local standards. Of course... More

I stayed for two weeks in January, and I had great expectations, since Khao Lak always had been an amazing experience. Emerald beach failed to deliver: rooms really smelled like mold, even on Thai standards, and so did the rest of the hotel premises. In the middle of the hotel area there is a huge, dirty and smelly pond that... More
