Last week, my extended family of 10 rented penthouse #1503 and condo #501. Penthouse gorgeous, roomy, & totally ok--except ice maker did not work! BUT, unit 501, though lovely in appearance (decor) had MANY inadequacies. 1) bed not made in master bedroom; 2 calls to desk finally resulted in sheet set for US to do job of housekeeping; 2) several...

We stayed in a different unit last year and loved it! It was beautiful, so we decided to stay in the same complex. When we walked into #403, we were extremely disappointed. There were so many things in disrepair... One of the worst things was the patio furniture. The cushions were severely stained with the foam actually coming out....not anything... More

We stayed in Unit 705 the week of April 1, 2013. The unit was very dirty, especially the floors, rugs, and appliances. Plus, the dishwasher was broken and Sterling Resorts did not respond to my request for repair. There were large black hand prints on the master bathroom door and black soot blew constantly from the ceiling vent in the... More

We stayed in unit #1103. It is an older building, but our condo was wonderful. Clean & bathrooms were updated compared to the pictures. Bedrooms were big, kitchen was clean, only thing missing was measuring cup and spoons. There was a washer/dryer that was nice to have in the unit. Ample bath towels were included. Kids stayed in 2nd bedroom... More

I had a wonderful stay. My view was absolutely breathtaking. The front desk staff at the Emerald Towers were very friendly and recommended several places to eat (which I enjoyed)! I would love to make this a yearly trip.

My daughter and I (from Freemont, WV) recently stayed at Emerald Towers Unit #302. Emerald Towers is an older condo - but better maintained than most of the newer condos. We really enjoyed our stay, and the staff that work there were wonderful and really helpful. We plan to try to return every year!

We stayed 5 nights in unit #403. The front desk attendant was pleasant and efficient. There was a good selection of DVDs that could be borrowed for free. The beach view was nice, and the pool was clean, but small. The kitchen appliances were all functional, but the ice maker in the wet bar did not work. The coffee maker... More

We were pleasantly surprised with how nice this place was. Their website is pretty antiquated and the pictures of the condo we stayed in didn't show much but the condo was absolutely fantastic upon arrival. We stayed in a 3 bedroom condo which was perfect for us with 3 kids. We found everything to be clean and honestly have no... More

We loved staying at Emerald Towers. The unit was very spacious and clean, and we loved being on the second floor. We have a son who is disabled, and he got around very well. Being close distance to the beautiful beach was a plus for him. We do a lot of cooking, and I was very pleased with a lot... More

This is our favorite place south of where we live! We stay here every year because of the ease of location, beautiful beaches and fabulous condo! We look forward to our stay every year. All the on site staff are the best and friendliest. We have made great friends with the staff and beach crew!
