Excellent place to stay!! We will be back. My husband and myself and our two sons and their girlfriends stayed here for a spring break getaway. It was very clean and pools were very clean. Staff was very nice. We stayed on the twenty third floor and it was very nice.

Emerald isle unit 1503 just changed owners and they have re-done everything! We had super comfy beds, brand new sheets and comforters, a big, fully stocked kitchen, a big Ole balcony,....it was awesome! I have stayed at the portafino, which is more elegant, but there you have to walk a long way to the beach. Emerald isle is VERY nice,... More

Emerald Isle has been our winter home for the past 7 years. We replace our cold Wisconsin winter views of snow and ice with surf and sand right out our windows! We love the quiet end of Panama City Beach, especially now that Pier Park has so many great options for entertainment and shopping. We can easily get to the... More

We were there for 2 weeks, and stayed in 1702. Breathtaking views. Gorgeous beach. Lots of space. Cable TV in every room, internet, lots of linens and dishes - we felt like we were at home. Will definitely be back! There are lots of great restaurants and shops in the area as well.

Condo was very roomy with two nice bedrooms, full kitchen, dining area and had a large balcony over looking the beach. The Emerald Isle also had a nice workout area with a sauna that I enjoyed while I was there. Lots of great... More

Pros: The Condos are amazing and you couldn't ask for a better view. Cons: When we arrived at 3am our room wasn't what was requested, they did fix it with no problem. We changed rooms and as soon as we walked in (room 1102) it smelled like something died!!! Horrible rotten smell. We went to the front desk and they... More

Stayed there 9/19 thru 9/26. All rooms have a gulf view. Beach is well maintained. Our room was immaculate when we arrived. Sufficient dishes and cutlery for your visit. Even have glass wine glasses. Everyone very friendly. Every night you have a beautiful sunset view. You step out of the elevators and you are right on the beach. Don't like... More
