“Fun & Relaxation, Best Vacation Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2006

I'm ready to go again. My family lives in NC and wanted to spend time with my parents. So we
booked a room at the Emerald Isle hotel while my parents parked their motor home just a block away
at the camp grounds. We didn't expect such a fabulous trip. We had so many things within
walking distance. We had the ocean just a couple hundred feet from our room. Just about a block away
was a small amuzement park, and further up the road was a water park, all without having to get in
a car or cross a major road. Then around the block was the campground where m parents were
staying. It was so nice not to have to drive here and there for everything and felt like you were
exhausted. Quite the contrary, we didn't want to leave. You could get up n the morning, eat a bite
of breakfast and take walk on the beach or watch the sunrise, the pool was there if you wanted.
Then get dressed with the kids and hit the beach. It was fun teaching the kids to body surf or let
them use their skin boards my mom bought them on the way. Ever day we ate at least one meal out
and of course I had shrimp. I couldn't get enough of fresh shrimp. In fact one day we walked
down by the water park and they a stand with several coolers loaded with fresh shrimp and we bought
some large ones for a very good price and cooked them on the grill at the campground. We all keep
talking about that trip and how much fun and relaxing it was. So much so we're planning on going
next year and doing the same thing and taking more time and do some of the surrounding sites we
know we enjoyed as well. Believe me if you go there and didn't have a relaxing fun time I don't
know what you did wrong because it's there. The hotel people were very helpful and kind and we
extended our stay a couple of more days. Wish it could have been a month. But you need to book a
room at least 6 months or even better ahead to get a room. Everyone we talked to said either they
stay there regularly on vacations or will in the future because it was so handy and so nice.
It's not the Ritz but who wants to stay cooped up in a fancy room anyway. But it's clean, updated,
and very nice so anyone should feel it was money well spent. Not to mention how convenient the
access was to everything. Hope to see you there. I have a teenage son and daughter so you're more
than likely find us at the beach or in the pool most of the time having a blast. Enjoy!!!
