We went to this hotel for the use of its beach from a day trip from a cruise ship. Though we didn't stay in the hotel I feel my experience is worth noting.
I found Emerald beach to be tooo quiet. ..well except for the occasional plane gearing down after being on the the airstrip. The airport area is behind the hotel .
I'm a 50 yr old woman with hubby and kids. We don't drink or smoke, so we wernt expecting a party atmosphere,but it was awkward. Though we paid for the chairs and umbrella ,we felt like we were invading the hotel beach, and there weren't many even there. To top it off I had a grilled chicken sandwich from their restaurant and got terrible food poisoning. I was sick for the next three days! It ruined our vacation. I phoned and was given terrible treatment and basically told I cant prove it was them . They were denying all even before they knew the dates when I had been there. The hotel chain is so inconsistent with standards its a shame. For the price they are charging per night in high season you will feel probably feel ripped off.
