Worst overall management I've ever seen. Probably a nice experience if you are just visiting for a few days, but for living-- pretty much a nightmare. Extremely rude and unhelpful management team. There are a cpl of nice employees, but the most are not. When I signed lease and tried to move in, my key didn't work. I went back... More

We stayed at this resort in August 2014 and had a fabulous time. The condo we stayed in was #207 on the ground floor and was 2 bedroom 2 bath and really big for a condo. Our family of four found it really comfortable & it was stocked with anything we needed just like at home. We didn't golf but... More

We rented for a week from a private owner and enjoyed the experience. The pool is a very nice area, although the pool is only 4 feet deep. The "unlimited golf" is a bit misleading. 2 ADULTS can golf unlimited but we had 1 adult golfer and 1-16 yr old golfer. The 16 yr old was limited to 4 rounds... More

My family and I stayed at Emerald Greens for one week for vacation and we all absolutely LOVED it. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The pool area was very clean and nice. The hot tub and sauna area was very clean and nice as well. We did not play golf, unsure how that is at this place. The... More

A beautiful, quiet, and serene place is the picture that is painted about this place. However, all the imminities are over-shadowed by the course and distasteful attitudes of the management staff. I have been all over the world and experienced excellent service and hospitality and I have also experienced the poorest. Emerald Greens is hands down the absolute worst case... More

I lived here for three years. I put up with management's snotty treatment. A few days after moving in, the tall lanky maintenance man came and "fixed" my dishwasher, while I was at work. I came home to 3 inches of water in the kitchen, dining and living room. They tried to blame me for it. The fitness center is... More

My daughter has just returned home after living at Emerald Greens for a year. She had considered signing another lease, but due to some of the characters that are being allowed to rent at the condos, she chose not to stay here any longer. It came to the point that we were insisting that she call us when she was... More

In an area of old, run down 1970's condos with small pools and no greenspace; this place is very "resort-like". Not to mention they run summer specials for about $100 per night...WITH FREE GOLF! Some of the other reviews are obviously not from vacationers. THIS IS TRIP ADVISOR...not APARTMENT ADVISOR. Please understand that Emerald Greens is an apartment/ condo complex... More

I signed a year lease here at Emerald Greens. I was never allowed to view my apartment until I paid for the utilities and they had to be turned on which cost 380.00 deposit for electricity and 150.00 for water . The day I was allowed to see my apartment was the day I paid my rent. Only after I... More
